Paper Culture is an innovative online business specializing in the creation of personalized invitations, announcements, stationery and wall art. Its exclusive designs, created by in-house artists, feature a modern outlook defined by clean lines, bold colors and innovative typography. Paper Culture's founders are committed to the protection of the environment. To that end, all products must be made from 100-percent post-consumer recycled paper. In addition, Paper Culture plants a tree to acknowledge each customer's order.
Invitations, announcements and cards for a variety of events are available through Paper Culture. Customers may choose a design from Paper Culture's artists, create their own personal design, or collaborate with the company's artists. Personalization of the message is included in the purchase price, as are two digital proofs of the invitation or announcement. Of course, envelopes are also included, and Paper Culture will stamp, address, and mail your cards with no extra charge, except for the postage.
The most extensive product line at Paper Culture relates to babies. Baby shower invitations, birth announcements and even pregnancy announcements are part of this category. Shower invitation designs are divided between those that are gender neutral and those that can be personalized for a boy or girl. Announcements are available for boys, girls, twins, other multiples and adopted babies. Some designs include a photograph of the new arrival, while others feature baby toys or animals.
Following in the baby theme, invitations to celebrate a child's first birthday include either cute designs and bright colors or an option to add the child's photo. Many of the children's birthday party invitations are age specific, while others are adaptable to any age. Invitations for adult birthday parties can feature the birthday person's age or may be themed to a specific activity, such as wine tasting, sushi, or summer at the beach.
Invitations and announcements of other special events include graduations, family reunions, bridal showers, baptisms and christenings, first communions, and Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, as well as moving announcements. In addition to the invitations, Paper Culture also offers save-the-date cards, which might be sent out several months before the event.
Although modern electronic communication methods are acceptable in many situations, there is still a place for the handwritten note or letter. To this end, Paper Culture also carries a line of stationery items, including thank you cards and monogrammed papers. A collection of holiday cards and invitations includes New Year's, Chinese New Year, Valentine's Day, Easter, Halloween, Hannukah and Christmas, with both pre-designed and photo styles available.
Paper Culture's also offers personalized wall art mounted on a bamboo panel. The artwork, such as a photograph of a new baby, is hand-mounted to the panel, which comes equipped with a keyhole in the back for easy hanging. The use of bamboo for the panels is in keeping with Paper Culture's commitment to environmental sustainability and protection.
