We offer custom printed reception cards for your event, on a variety of eco friendly papers.

A reception card is used to inform your guests of the time and location of the reception that follows your ceremony. In many cases this card is unnecessary. If your event is taking place all under one roof you can simply state "reception to follow" at the bottom of your invitation card. If your event has a reception in a location that requires your guests to travel right after the ceremony then you should include a reception card. Be sure to include the time and place on your card.

Orders ship one week from proof approval.

Our cotton and abaca blend paper is made in our Seattle studio. This tree free, earth friendly, paper is made with every effort to conserve water and resources. We add no chemicals or other agents to ensure that our process is as environmentally friendly as possible. We are happy to offer this 100% post industrial waste recycled handmade paper.

Our handmade lotka paper is made in the highlands of Nepal by rural craftspeople in an environmentally friendly process with 50% recycled content. The raw material for our paper is the Daphne bush. It is farmed and harvested from 3-4 year old plants that are cut down and stripped of their bark. The plant is not destroyed when cut down, it regenerates from the root. The leftover cane is dried and used to heat the villager’s homes. All of the water used in the paper production is reclaimed and reused. The bark is beaten by hand and boiled to break it down to a pulp, mixed with recycled pulp, and poured into screens to form the sheets. These sheets are then dried in the sun. The whole process is not only earth friendly but also provides a large community with a healthy enterprise.

We are available from 8am to 6pm pacific time Monday - Friday.
