Real Parties: Cirque du Ray!

Alright, not to pick favorites, but we do have a certain client that we just LOVE to design things for and we've done a ton of it for her!  From her wedding invitations to moving cards to more stationery than I can ever imagine writing thank yous on (and she has!) to baby announcements, we've done it all!  Our latest project for a very dapper little gentleman was all about lions and tigers and bears... oh my! The circus (with teens dressed in animal costumes) rolled into Georgetown to celebrate our friend's first birthday in style and no detail was overlooked at this fiesta that was as much fun for the adults as it was for the kids!  We love all of the thoughtful details that were put into every aspect of the party and had so much fun, as usual, helping our friend with this one!  Check out the invitations and letterpressed thank yous below.



Our Couture Consultations

Haute Papier is pleased to offer its clients the many services designed to make the inviting process as flawless and enjoyable as possible!

Our process begins with a consultation, usually in person at our studio, but sometimes over the phone.  At this meeting, our design team becomes acquainted with you and your event.  We are sure to ask several questions so we can create the most perfect paperie possible.  We think of our couture pieces as works of art, so the process is very hands on.  During the meeting, we will review the rest of the process.  Don't worry, we will walk you through everything!

To schedule a consultation, please call or email Emily at 866.740.4222 or

Real Wedding: Cate & Tim

We had the pleasure of working with Thy from Evoke in the planning for Cate & Tim's big day.  We just loved thinking up the perfect paperie for all of the little details from the Menus to the cookie signs to their thank yous!  All photo credits go to Renee Sprink Photography. 

Easy Etiquette - Choosing An Envelope Addressing Method!

We, of course, love love love the look of beautiful hand-written calligraphy!  It's that extra special touch that make your invited guests just swoon.  At a cost of between $3.50 and $5.50 it is certainly not in everyone's budget, but it's a great little extra for those who must have it!  A pain-stacking art practiced by fewer and fewer in recent years, this is definitely the most formal and traditional way to address a wedding invitation suite.  Though Haute Papier does not have a calligrapher on staff, we work with a handful of the country's most respected calligraphers to ensure that your invitations are addressed perfectly!

If traditional calligraphy is not in your budget, please don't fret since it no longer means you'll be hunched over for hours addressing your own invitations in what your elementary school teachers insisted was chicken scratch! Oh no, now computer printed addressing is widely available for all types of envelopes.  Haute Papier offers this for our couture and wholesale items, and at a cost of between $1.50 and $2.50 it's a great deal!  Check out how beautifully it can match your invitation set!  Anything from a traditional script font to a funky block is sure to catch the eye of your guests!
