gift idea

This is a great gift for a couple getting married who may find themselves in need of personalized stationery, save the dates, invites, & lots of other paper!  It's also a great idea for any friend who loves paper and would enjoy the chance to do some post-holiday shopping for themselves. That's always fun!

Psst...to celebrate, we're hosting a giveaway over on Instagram that you may just want to check out!

As always, if you have any questions, just drop us a line!

With Thanksgiving behind us now, it's time to get serious about holiday shopping.  The Black Friday & Cyber Monday deals have invaded our inboxes and we're sure yours too!  With all the big box retailers and websites out there, it can be easy to get overwhelmed and lost in the noise.

modern christmas cards

Each year, we release a new set of holiday cards with a theme of sorts. Usually our Christmas cards and holiday line is a bit more modern in style - clean, simple, and brightly colored.

Some of our favorites over the years include the flip flop Christmas tree, which has always been a best seller, and the Eames chair Christmas tree card which speaks to owner & founder Sarah's love of midcentury modern style.

In 2013, our line was all about holiday lyrics, and the sweet "Santa Baby" and "All I Want for Christmas" cards are still a big favorite too.  And of course, "Merry Merry Christmas" is perfect for any recipient, as is its companion Happy Holidays card!

There are so many other fun holiday cards to shop, all handmade and designed right here in our Charleston, SC studio.  If you happen to live in the area, we'll be happy to refund the shipping and have you pickup at our studio! 

Psst...also, if you are looking to personalize the cards at all, we offer inside printing on a minimum order of 20 at a cost of $10 (0.50/ea).

lauren + bill | charleston wedding

We could not have been more excited to see an email from Dana Cubbage weddings this week with gorgeous shots from Lauren and Bill's blush and gold wedding.  She always does such a beautiful job styling the paper!

Lauren's invitation suite has a beautiful cascading gold design at the time and the entire thing is done in gold foil - response card included.

gold foil invitationWe wrapped the suite up with a blush belly band and a custom monogram seal printed on bright gold paper in white ink.  Everything went inside a blush envelope with an envelope liner in matching gold.  It's truly stunning!

When it came time to the wedding decor, we wanted to create a menu to match, so the same lovely gold pattern at the top was used. It's such a pretty touch at each place setting, and aren't those plates and gold flatware she chose to die for?!

You can see much more of this blush and gold wedding on Dana Cubbage's blog.

Personalized Stationery SALE

It's always good to have personal stationery on hand - a thank you note, a sympathy note, or a just-because sent to a friend goes such a long way.  Half the battle can be remembering to buy the card, so instead keep some handy for yourself and make keeping the art of handwritten correspondence alive that much easier!

personalized stationery

Custom stationery also makes an incredibly thoughtful gift, so stock up while we have our personalized stationery on sale 20% off this week! Holiday shopping season is already upon us and custom gifts generally take a little more planning, so get started sooner than later.  You can customize the monogram, name, ink color, etc. when you order stationery from Dodeline.

We look forward to making something awesome for you!

how to mail wedding invitations

It may seem self explanatory, but odds are good that you've never mailed 100 or more highly personal, elegant, and incredibly important pieces of mail to everyone you hold dearest.  Whenever a bride or groom picks up an order here at Dodeline, it's a question we hear - "now what do I do with these things?"

 

Check out the quick video above for some helpful tips on mailing your wedding invitations. One big one: don't forget to pre-address and pre-stamp the response envelopes!
