What are the main benefits of working with a custom stationer versus a large online company?
Working with a stationer like The Girl General
gives you the opportunity to sit and talk to real person who will take your vision for your special day and turn it into a flawless product.
What services and options do you offer that a DIY company can’t offer?
We offer luxe and bespoke services like engraving, foiling, letterpress and embossing printing methods. We also offer services including calligraphy, custom wedding branding and monogramming tailored to your special day and aesthetic.
For brides on a budget concerned about the cost of custom stationery, how do you suggest saving money while still opting for a custom product?
Hand-addressing guest envelopes and purchasing product when there are specials offered are both good ways to save a bit of money when looking at custom stationery. If the bride has a friend or family member who is an illustrator or designer, see if they can help with the design aspect of the invitation.
Anything else you want brides to know about working with The Girl General?
Knowing your household count is the best thing you can do for yourself and your stationer! This will help give a realistic cost estimate for goods and services.
