  • The New Class of Wedding Invitations

    We've come a long way baby! Invitation designs have grown by leaps and bounds compared to where they started. Don't get us wrong, we love the look of a classic engraved or letterpress invitation with black ink. There is a reason that look transcends time and cultural changes. The word timeless comes to mind. HOWEVER, there is something so exciting about the new class of wedding invitations designed by inspired artists that capture our imaginations and show us just how far we can go. From the juxtaposition of neon & letterpress together, to laser cut, to printed cork and wood, here are just a few examples of these innovations.

     

  • More Time to Shop at Paper Trails!

    We know how it is. You work a busy week, then try to make time for holiday shopping on the weekends and your favorite shops are closed. This is why, during the month of December, we will be open every day until Christmas Eve. Sunday hours will be 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. We hope these hours will ensure that everyone can make it in and enjoy all the unique and fun items we have to offer. We hope to see you here!
