Q: What do you love about working in the wedding industry?
A: I love being a part of such a momentous, joyful event. And, it brings me extra satisfaction when I can create paper goods that make a client say, “That is so us!”
Q: What’s an average day at A Milestone Paper Co. like?
A: I work from home, so I get my three kids off to school and then settle in. My day is a nice balance of meetings and other communication with clients, design time, and all of the other logistics that go into completing projects – ordering paper and ribbon, sending to print, and checking proofs.
Q: What would you want a couple in the wedding planning process to know about wedding stationery?
A: Your wedding paper goods should reflect you. There are certainly etiquette topics to factor in and the budget to consider, but at the heart of it all, the paper goods should set the tone because they are the perfect representation of YOU!
Q: What do you offer for Thank You stationery options?
A: We create custom thank yous in a variety of styles. Some couples want to share a wedding photo on their thank you, others introduce the new monogram, or we sometimes incorporate creative, unique wording. The sky is the limit!
Q: Do you have any recommendations for couples in regards to the Thank You note process?
A: It’s great to get thank you notes ordered early so you can start writing out thank you notes as gifts start coming that way it doesn’t feel as overwhelming as doing them all at once.
Q: If you were to create your dream wedding stationery what would it look like?
A: My personal style is clean and modern with a touch of industrial or rustic, so I imagine something printed on wood with accompanying pieces on white cotton stock.
Q: Have you done any unique wedding thank you cards that stand out to you?
A: One of the most unique thank you notes I did was a laser cut piece with “THANK YOU” cut out. We layered that over a photo of the couple. It was stunning!
