Smock's "Odin" wedding invitation
Where does the time go? Can't believe the Paper Passionista has been absent from posting for two weeks! With busy schedules and a trip to Oregon for a family reunion over the 4th of July holiday it seems the first half of July nearly escaped me. But, I couldn't let any more time pass without letting you know about the arrival of the wonderful Smock line of invitations. Two albums of beautiful eco-friendly letterpress invitations have arrived and they're beautiful! Smock, and its sister line, Bella Figura, (discussed in my previous post) are both meticulously created in Syracuse, NY in an incredibly eco-friendly print shop that is entirely wind powered. Smock is the first company in the US to make their paper and envelopes from bamboo because bamboo is a sustainable resource. To quote Smock's website, "It’s the fastest growing plant on this planet and grown without pesticides or fertilizers. Bamboo also makes (hands down) the prettiest paper out there." Also, a percentage of every single order is donated to eco-friendly charities. Kudos to Smock for helping take care of our planet!
The environment isn't the only thing Smock helps conserve on. With each order they provide free 3-day shipping, free proofs (the first two versions), and 10% extra mailing envelopes free. Smock and Bella Figura are the only two lines I have found that offer these amazing benefits. All of this, combined with beautiful artistry in their designs, make Smock a front runner in the invitation and stationery industry. Think of Smock when you need invitations and stationery for all occasions. They have custom holiday cards and invitations too.
