1. artful wedding invitations you can make your own
Kimi, the founder and designer behind Printable Press, prioritizes designs that don’t look like everything else out there. She’s got a flair for combining the natural with the modern and calls her personal style “Urban Rustic.” She says, “I love the city, the hustle and bustle, and museums and crisp lines, but I also love tramping about in the woods gathering moss and ferns and violets.” (Don’t worry, she’s also got calligraphy designs, modern designs, and classically lovely designs that totally nail traditional while still keeping things fresh.)
Printable Press invites are available printed on super thick, luxe card stock ($209 for 100 invites and free envelopes), or as a digital download ($79) if you’d rather print at home or at a local printer. Printable Press also offers a free sample pack so you can feel the quality of the paper and see sample designs in person. And of course, every invitation is customizable; all changes from fonts to custom colors are just $25 per change, and are applied to your whole invitation suite—meaning if you change your font for your invitations, you don’t have to pay to have it changed everywhere else.
2. #lazygirl diy (all the reward FOR half the work)
- Belly bands: These are such an easy way to make your invites look like you tried just a little harder (you know, if you care about that). Printed belly bands start at $25 or a DIY-printable is $15. (Psst, you can also download a free Printable Press belly band design right here.)
- Return and guest addressing: Return addresses and guest addresses that match your invitation. So pretty, so few hand cramps. Bonus! Printable Press carefully reviews and adjusts each and every address as needed, making sure there’s no wonky formatting. Return address printing is $70 for 100 envelopes, and guest addressing is $1.45 per envelope.
- Return address rubber stamps: Same hand cramp-saving designs, more affordable price. Plus, you can bust out your rubber stamp for everything from save-the-dates to shower thank yous, wedding thank yous, and all those bits of correspondence that sneak their way into a wedding. (Bonus: Did you know there’s a right way to use a rubber stamp? Kimi breaks it down here.) Return address stamps are $55.
- Wedding logos: Available in rubber stamps ($55), stickers (100 for $65), and printables ($25). (Pro-tip: Get the printable file and you can even use it to customize your wedding website.)

NEW! Chocolate bar wrappers
I’m pretty much always grateful for edible favors (nothing staves off a wedding hangover quite like finding snacks in your purse at midnight). But if you’ve looked for a DIY option that won’t break the bank (or your back), you may have noticed that what’s currently available online is… not cute. That’s why Printable Press just introduced twenty new printable custom chocolate bar wrapper designs, and y’all, I want to keep these around my house, that’s how pretty they are. These chocolate bar wrappers are available as digital files for just $14.95 and give you the freedom to make as many copies as your heart desires.
No description of Printable Press would be complete without mentioning Kimi’s stellar customer service. Don’t be fooled by the multitude of options; Printable Press is still very much a small business, run mostly by Kimi herself. And she prides herself on making sure your wedding paper is just right. As one happy client says:
Kimi at Printable Press was relatable, fun, professional, and easy to work with! She answered all my questions both by phone and email promptly. My fiancé and I were working on a tight timeline and Kimi helped us get our wedding invitations and a wedding stationary stamp all on time (actually ahead of schedule!). The color and texture of the invitations is beautiful and exactly what I expected. The paper, ink, and manufacturing is truly top of the line and high quality. So many of our guests have already commented on how uniquely stunning the invitations are! I appreciated how patient Kimi was when working with us through the invitation proofs as we made little changes here and there. She let us customize our invitation wording to fit our personalities and never made us feel like we were inconveniencing her with our requests. Printable Press has the personality and feel of an intimate small business with exceptionally professional and well-designed products! I would recommend them to all folks preparing for their big day… in fact, I already referred a friend! Thank you again, Kimi! So grateful that we found your company! xoxoxo
So if you have found yourself in the #lazygirl conundrum of wanting pretty wedding stationery with options, but don’t actually want to have to, you know, do anything about it but go shopping, then head to Printable Press right now. Because convenience, options, beautiful design, and a great price shouldn’t be mutually exclusive.
