This week Lucky Onion was given the amazing opportunity to step outside of our typical day in the stationery world and design a few original pieces for a very important cause. Glitz and Giggles Gala is an event being held to raise money for Crohn's Disease and the MAP vaccine that may be the cure. Jenny Ginther is the founder of the Gala, health advocate for Crohn's Disease, as well as a long time friend of Lucky Onion's creative director Cristy Fernandez. We had so much fun designing for the Glitz & Giggles Gala and wish all the best in its success!

Wedding stationery - it's the pretty pieces of paper you send out to the people you want to attend your event. Right?
Of course! But, if the title of this post gives you any indication, it's also so much more.
First, wedding stationery isn’t just the invitation and RSVP card you mail to your friends and family. And second, it doesn't have to fit inside a rectangular envelope. (Or be a piece of paper, for that matter.)
In this post, we'll show you how we elevate the wedding stationery game. And how we create a comprehensive suite of products and paper goods.
Highly personal, beautiful, and informative stationery takes time, consideration, and creativity. We take the following steps to ensure that happens.
Your wedding invitation is where it all begins.
Just think about it:
It’s the first thing your guests will see and receive related to your wedding. It gives them an idea of what to expect. And it sets the overall tone and feel of your event.
With its multitude of design possibilities, your invitations can (and should!) be deeply personal - making your guests say, “That’s so them!” as they open their envelope.
But if you're like most engaged couples, you may be wondering, what exactly goes into an invitation suite?
What about the wording? Are there etiquettes or protocols to follow? How far in advance should we make them? And when do they need to be sent out?
Wonder and worry no more! Because we’re answering all of your questions in this blog post.
You’re engaged - congrats! And overall, the wedding planning is going well. But you have also have to admit, you’ve had a few sleepless nights thinking about some things. Perhaps, one of them being stationery.
You know you need it. It’s how you’ll tell your guests the need-to-know details of your wedding. But you also want your stationery to go beyond successfully relaying the information. And instead, to set the tone for the entire weekend in a highly-personalized way.
After all, it’s the first “peek” your guests will have into your wedding.
But where do you even start? What does that kind of stationery look like? And what about the wording? Wouldn’t it be easier to pick out something pre-designed and call it a day?
Is custom stationery really where you should be focusing your attention, energy, and budget?!
First, do yourself a favor and take a slow, deep breath.
Then, keep reading! Because I’m answering your questions and showing you why custom stationery is, in fact, worth every penny.
