Stationery Spotlight: Seedlings

Name: Jenny Zemanek

Company/Business Name: Seedlings, LLC

How long have you been in business? 4 Years

Where do you get your inspiration from?
Anywhere and everywhere I can, but most of my inspiration comes from the bride herself. I love when a bride comes in with an idea but she’s not quite sure how to bring it to life; it’s fun to rise to the challenge of putting a design on paper that previously only existed in her head. There’s also the bride that has no idea where to start and that challenge comes in trying to create a design based on her personality and come up with something she loves but didn’t know she was going to.

Do you have a favorite style of invitation (formal, whimsy, contemporary, etc)?
My style tends to be more contemporary. I gravitate towards simple, elegant but still fun designs that bring a little flair to the stationery suite and get guests excited to see how the rest of the wedding will turn out.

Do you specialize in a type of stationery (letterpress, print, engraved, etc)?
Most of my invitations are printed digitally, but I do offer offset printing or letterpress if that is something the bride is really interested in. Engraving is usually very expensive, so in my experience it’s not a very popular printing method (though it’s gorgeous!)

Average cost of your invitations (a range is just fine):
Since everything is so custom, it really depends on the type of paper, embellishments and number of invitations ordered, but a solid range would be $4-$9 per invitation set (includes invitation, outer envelope with return address printed on the flap, reply card and reply envelope).

Tip or advice to brides/grooms designing custom invitations or stationery suite:
Have fun with it! The beauty of coming to a graphic designer for your wedding invitations is there are no limitations and the possibilities are endless. There are no select few ink colors, no select few paper choices, design motifs, monograms or anything else; we can create anything you want. This is the bride’s dream day, a day into which she is going to invest hours and hours of planning to create an event that reflects her and her fiancĂ©, and I love being a part of that and helping them set the tone for that event with an invitation that no one has seen before. It brings an element of surprise and anticipation for guests when they open that envelope.
