You may or may not be surprised to know, but Cute Buttons has almost 40 custom and wedding vendors in store (and continues growing). There is truly something for everyone who walks through our doors. We will be starting a series of blog posts where we explore the wonders of the custom world – vendor by vendor! We have vendors who sell and create lovely, intricate wedding stationery. We have vendors who’s claim to fame are stationery boxes and custom tags. We have vendors who make jewelry, bags, passport holders, wine glasses, cutting boards, and more! (To brag slightly, we really have it all… Hehe!)
Since we are completely immersed in wedding season right now, this introductory post will be dedicated to one of our wedding invitation vendors, One + Only Paper.
Left: This shimmery copper liner is the perfect pop of color in this black and white set.
Right: Brides are going NUTS over the Merrimon collection due to the fact they can change the watercolor building shown to the venue where they are hosting their wedding! This personal touch is so beautifully done.
Since 2013, Alison Hazinski has been designing and printing incredible – seriously gorgeous – invitation suites for her clients in the Triangle area. One + Only Paper offers a variety of printing processes including letterpress, foil stamping, and flat offset printing.
Left: Shot of two suites – one that includes a sample of Alison’s custom map! Located at the bottom in blue, this map is a great addition for any couple who plans on inviting many out-of-towners to their big day! It shows them where the venue is, as well as fun things to do and see nearby!
Right: Delicate watercolored guest addressing = to die for!
The talented owner can create suites full of pretty paper. In her book, she offers invitations, save the dates, reply cards, accommodations and information cards, menu cards, programs, table numbers, reserved signs, custom maps, and escort cards. Her clients are able to choose from the works – belly bands, envelope liners, ribbons, wax seals – making her a real one-stop-shop! She has a variety of paper, envelope, and ink colors to coordinate with any client’s vision and make it a reality.
Left: A sample of O+OP’s folded programs. This one included the couple’s personal duogram that they incorporated in each aspect of their suite. This is another one of those personal touches that the designer is able to execute in her work.
Right: Above is one of the more modern styled suites. The geode, jewel look is very popular with our brides, and we can’t stop gawking at the uniqueness of it with that touch of foil!
Alison has mastered both traditional and contemporary styled invitations, as shown throughout this post.
Left: Both the Battery Park and the Beverly Hills collections are examples of O+OP’s more classic and traditional suites. Here at Cute Buttons, we love how these invitations are able to tie in both block and script fonts without being too busy, but still include design elements, like borders and duograms, to make it fun!
Right: Another shot of a watercolored guest addressed envelope. Many clients opt to include guest addressing in their packages due to its convenience and appearance.
So you’ve made it to the end of the post – woop woop! We are so excited to share our vendors with you and so grateful to be able to work with such talented designers every day! Stay tuned for more.
