Yep! I used to be "Kari Kileen Custom Invitations and Stationery" because when I first turned my love for paper into a business I was single and apparently thought I'd never get married. Then I actually got married, legally changed my name, and people started getting confused. I get it - it was confusing!
After much thought, I also wanted to simplify my business name, so I chose "Paper Cuts" because I love a good pun. (This also happens to be a bit of an inside joke with my husband who once got a paper cut and you would have thought his leg had been amputated based on the volume of his scream! I've never let him live it down.)
You name it, I've probably created it, or I'm willing to do so! After all, there's a first time for everything. Personalized stationery, holiday cards, wedding invitations and all coordinating stationery, party invitations, and birth announcements are my most common projects, but I've also tackled moving announcements, graduation announcements and calling cards. I'm a bit of an old soul, so I love anything printed on beautiful, luxurious paper.
Each project is unique, but I usually use 130 pound eggshell cover stock for printed materials, and my signature stationery and invitations involve multiple layers of heavy card stock. Paper should be felt and appreciated, not flimsy or an afterthought.
The beauty of Paper Cuts, though, is that I'm willing to help you find the perfect color of stock, design a custom envelope liner, or add embellishments...all while helping your invitation or stationery stand out from the rest.
No, it's not complicated! If you're planning a wedding or larger event, I'll send you a questionnaire which helps me understand the tone, color scheme, and style of your event.
It's remarkable how much I can learn about your style preferences through just a few questions. I then create several proofs which we tweak until I've created something you love. It's an interactive process, but it's actually pretty straightforward.
If you're simply needing a few invitations for a small party, we can have a quick email exchange or phone call to get the ball rolling. My clients will tell you I make this process as easy as possible.
Want me to address your invitations? Sure thing! I have a spreadsheet which I have clients complete and then I can address your invitations using calligraphy.
Want me to mail your holiday cards or invitations? Consider it done! As long as you have a list of addresses, I can take that task off your hands.
I'm going to be blunt - that is a tough question to answer because all of my projects are completely custom. The best way to explain the cost is to explain that there are many determining factors when pricing wedding invitations:
I have created gorgeous invitations which were simple and cost effective, but I've also created invitation suites which pulled out all the stops and the cost was higher as a result. When we initially correspond, I will be able to provide an itemized pricing summary based on the quantity of invitations you need, so you'll have a solid understanding of my pricing structure. All of this is to say that there are many ways to make an invitation suite work for your budget, but it may require some flexibility on your part.
As for holiday cards or basic party invitations, the costs are much more straightforward. On average, my cards are $1.50 per card (including envelopes), but may be more (per card) for small quantities or for cards with embellishments. I don't require that you order in any specific increment. I always share my holiday card pricing on social media in late October or early November.
Stationery sets (flat, layered cards) are $20 for 20 pieces of stationery (including envelopes). You may order in any multiple of 4.
