Invitations are Back!
Posted by Bridgette on 6th Feb 2018
Life is so funny... Back in 2000, I was planning my own wedding and could not find invitations that both fit my budget and had awesome style. So as a designer I decided to create my own. Took me about 3 years to perfect them but alas, I did and we loved them. I still do! They were orange, fuchsia and yellow with touches of green. Our theme was tropical and fun. We had steel drummers and amazing floral designs created by my sister.
During the planning stages I spent a lot of time on different wedding forums. I found that a lot of people needed help with their invites. I started offering to help just because I really enjoyed the process of designing invites.
Two years later Earmark was born. I would sit under my loft bed in our 400 square foot apartment in Boston designing invites. I created simple invites that were budget friendly to the max and then over the years created lavish sets that cost nearly five figures. We have done letterpress, engraving, embossing, thermography... you name it. We did it.
We created one-of-a-kind invitations for Tony Robbins, numerous times, for special events reserved only for his most valuable members. We made amazing invites for a Gifting Suite at the Sundance Film Festival. The invites had velvet, satin ribbons, wax seals and bespoke chocolate bars. It was lavish and beautiful - really ooh la la! These were sent out to all the big names... Paul Rudd, Antonio Banderas, Matisyahu, Paris Hilton and many other well-known celebs.
Somewhere along the way we decided that invites were not working for us anymore. The times had changed. Budgets became smaller and the industry hadn't really hit its flow yet. So in order to make ends meet we decided to switch our focus into the stationery and art print world - the Earmark you know and love today
Over the last few years I found myself really missing the excitement of creating invitations, big and small. I missed being in the wedding world and being a part of people's celebrations and happy life moments. Which leads us to today... right here, right now. I am ready, I am excited! I cannot wait to embark on this new (old) journey with open arms and excitement. I look forward to taking all I have learned over the years and sharing it with you.
So without further adieu, I would like to present you with the newest addition to Earmark Social Goods... INVITES! We will have an invite gallery going up on the site soon with some of our old favorites and a lot of new and awesome designs. We will cover almost all budgets - we don't want to leave anyone out!
