MR: Can you give us some ideas about how to impress your guests with your paper goods while keeping to a reasonable budget? DH: Multi-task your items. You can use a favour box at each place setting which can also be used as a name card. Table numbers can have photos of the bride and groom incorporated into them. Menus can also house seating information. Whatever items you choose to incorporate into your overall theme, make it personal. Less can be more when it is well-designed. Use flat cards as place cards and put pens on the tables so your guests can write you a message on the back for your guest book, keepsake box or whatever you want to put them in. MR: Is there a rule when it comes to how many colours to use in your stationery suite? DH: It really depends on the bride and how elaborate the wedding is. Two colours is plenty for a minimalist, but many are using three or four colours on their invitation suites. MR: What colours (apart from white/ivory) are currently popular? DH: I think you will see more gilded wedding invitations using Envelopments shades such as 24KT, Champagnium, Tamarind, Cameo, Sea Shell and Pyrite for those glam brides. Natural Kraft, Pecan Barque and recycled stocks with bursts of colors like Reef or Dahlia, will continue to be strong for the more boho chic bride. Caspian, Aquamarine and Diamond still rule for beach weddings. Location and theme have so much to do with the invitation design as it helps hint at what is to come. I think it is fantastic that today’s couples have so much to work with when it comes to finding details and stocks that really resonate with their style and budget.

MR: What's your most popular product? DH: Pocket Folds are still number one, but we are seeing a surge in popularity in Pocket Cards. They are extremely versatile, and simpler,while still keeping all your information neatly together.
