Latest trends in fine stationery, custom invitations and announcements from the Stationers Guild

Crane & Co., one of the oldest and most prestigious designers of fine stationery and custom invitations, has just released their new wedding invitation album entitled:  Volume I, Invitations and Announcements.  Now available at Crane dealers in fine stationery stores across the United States, Crane’s new wedding invitation samples, wedding stationery and save the date cards combine the traditional Crane design excellence with some new contemporary wrinkles for those looking for something cutting edge.

While Crane’s superb engraving distinguishes them  from most other wedding invitation printers, their new wedding album also features sample invitations and announcements in letterpress, blind embossing and digital printing in a comprehensive new array of design options at different price points that are sure to appeal to a broad cross-section of bridal couples.

Some of the more distinguishing features of their new release are the number of new digital options.  For instance there is an attractive new save the date card which features a photograph of Venice (looks like a destination wedding) or can also feature a photograph of  the bridal couple. 

Also, digital photography is used most effectively in applying a monogram to pocket folders.  While I am not pleased that some of the sample invitations have monograms featuring the wedding initials of the wedding couple (should only be used after they are officially married), the craftspeople at Crane haven’t lost their edge when producing some stunning wedding invitations.

Crane & Co.sells online but I encourage you to visit a qualified stationery store in your neighborhood to receive expert advice and see and feel ”real” invitations samples in colors that are not distorted by low resolution Internet images.  Trust me, it makes a huge difference and you might save some money by discussing options with an experienced stationer.
