Passport invitation from Spark Letterpress Love
International orders are becoming a regular thing for Paper Passionista. We've had the extreme pleasure of assisting in the design and production of invitations for weddings occurring in England, Italy, Mexico, Ireland, France, Spain, Turkey, Greece, and Japan, among others. We're now working on our second wedding of the year in Scotland. It's funny to think back to a time as recently as five years ago, when we didn't accept any orders outside the U.S.A.!
I loved the initial contact from a mother of the bride for our latest international wedding when she reached out via email saying, "my daughter is getting married in October, and to complicate matters, I live in Portugal, my daughter lives in Alaska, and the wedding is in Scotland!" This was followed by a delightful series of emails, phone conversations via Skype, and a wire transfer of funds happening over night. Tomorrow we'll begin production on the beautiful letterpress invitation suite that we've created together. Through exchanges of mailed samples and three-way conversations we reached completion of the design phase in a week, and now the printer, Designers Fine Press, will take over with proofing. Once printed FedEx will ship them from my printer in Ohio straight to the daughter in Alaska.
International orders, or even those for remote locations in the U.S., are really not complicated anymore if you have the right technology (email, Skype and Pinterest), and team members all working toward a common goal - helping couples and their families bridge the miles between them to make planning a destination wedding fun. Bon voyage!
