Creating your one-of-a-kind invitation has never been easier!
I'm so excited to unleash Thinking Paper's new online store structure, conceptualized to guide couples in creating their very own unique invitation ensemble to set the tone for their special upcoming day!
From the cozy convenience of your home, 24-7, you can build your invitation at Thinking Paper from the ground up using our new process in just 4 easy steps.
Step 1. I'm sure we're all familiar with the saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover" and over the years I have found that we’re all guilty of that to some extent when it comes to narrowing down a specific invitation style. As my mama says (mainly with decor), "it has potential" and ironically, choosing an invitation style is sort of the same in thought.
Your wedding invitation ensemble is a "presentation" you're mailing to your invited guests, a very important piece to not only provide them with a glimpse into your vision but is also a vehicle holding vital information regarding your day. This, presentation, needs to suit not only your wedding style but should also neatly organize all of those necessary, informative enclosure cards (RSVP, reception- if applicable, hotel accommodations or wedding details and directions).
Having said that, Step 1 at Thinking Paper is configured to display the variety of invitation styles that are available to you, conceptualized without design elements or color present to better help you narrow down or decide which invitation style, “presentation” most appeals to you and will favor your stationery needs the best. In addition, you'll be able to price compare the different base styles and view some completed photos of those specific invitation styles to inspire and spark your inner creativity when selecting your own colored paper combos, print design and card stock in the steps to follow.

Once you’ve narrowed down and added to the shopping cart your base invitation style, then you’re ready to begin choosing a design or two or three (as many as you’d like) and adding those to your cart as well. (special discount offered at the very end, keep reading) ...
In Step 2 at Thinking Paper’s online store, you’ll find an array of exclusive designs to choose from for your invitation style. Customization is always welcomed so please keep in mind while browsing that the fonts used and the overall color palette of the design can and will most likely change to match your theme.
Thinking Paper is NOT an automated system, once your order has been processed, you’ll work remotely (email/phone) one-on-one with a professional designer who will make the changes you request and create your proofs by putting together all of the pieces (an electronic mockup) to send via email for your review and approval to print.

Step 3. Choosing the actual printed card stock. Thinking Paper’s invitations and enclosure/insert cards are printed using the most innovative digital presses with paper stocks containing high percentages of post-consumer product (around 30%) and use wind-generated energy. Invitation card stocks are of White or Cream/Ivory in either a flat (matte), textured or shimmer finish. Kraft is available as well but not recommended for printing of light colors.
During this stage of building your invitation, you may know which print stock and finish will best compliment your invitation style and design but if your prefer to view your proof prior to making this selection, that is okay! You’ll be able to either proceed to the final step 4 or may place your order as is and add this choice later. Though, prior to doing this, it’s highly recommended to at least view the various printed card stock options available and pricing to figure your final cost. View More Info

Down to the last and final step of creating your one-of-a-kind wedding invitation, Step 4. You may notice in some of the invitation styles shown throughout Step 1; designed envelope printing, monogrammed outer seal closure or ribbon embellishments. In Step 4 you’ll be able to add these items to your ensemble if you choose to do so. View More Info
Within each step of this “Build Your Invitation” process, you’ll find a page titled More Info that I’m sure you’ve seen if not already clicked while reading through this article. Reading these pages prior to diving right into the steps is promised to be of good use and direction. In addition, I also recommend maybe going through each of the steps first to preview what is available and comes next. Think of it like a buffet line, wouldn’t you like to know what is being served at the opposite end prior to plating your food at the first station? I think so!
