We’re so excited to be featured in two issues of Brides magazine this fall! In the August/September issue, our die cut wedding invitation from the Violet suite (above) was featured as a “New Classic,” and the modern letterpress invitations from the Oswald collection were shown as part of the “Elegant, Inspired Stationery Ideas” article.

We designed this Oswald suite in partnership with Urbanic Paper Boutique for the gorgeous couple, Melissa and Jon who were married last year in Los Angeles. Scroll down to see some photos from their wedding day (taken by Aaron Shintaku), first featured on the Green Wedding Shoes blog.

Last, in the October/November issue, Brides featured a MaeMae custom invitation that was designed for a fall harvest-themed wedding. This invitation was digitally printed on cotton paper, which provides a great variance of color. The result is stationery that looks and feels similar to letterpress, but costs a fraction of the price.

What an honor, thank you, Brides!


Oftentimes our brides are looking for a more DIY option for their save the date before they dive into a more full service experience with their formal invitations and day of pieces. That’s where our Save the Date stamp comes in! These stamps are a stylish and easy way to DIY your Save the Dates while still having a polished and sophisticated design. You can mix and match different papers and inks to perfectly correlate with your upcoming wedding’s theme or aesthetic. The stamps are cost-effective and effortless allowing you to add a personal flourish to your wedding correspondence. All of our new Save the Date stamps also coordinate perfectly our address stamps for a completed look.

After you send out your save the dates you can also work with us to customize the rest of your wedding stationery from our current wedding collection! Interested in something more custom? We would love to work with you on a bespoke suite as well.

Customize your own save the date stamp here for $98. We are also offering 20% off all of our stamps with code GWS20 at checkout until Sept. 16.

Our Ollie save the date stamp was recently featured in Brides Magazine and the Quimby save the date stamp was featured on Vogue.com! A big thanks to Green Wedding Shoes for featuring our stamps today. We are also offering 20% off all of our stamps with code GWS20 at checkout! The offer is good until Sept. 16.

So excited to have three different stationery pieces in Brides Southern California Magazine!! A magnet I created for
Matt + Aly as well as my very own save the date (from the
first ever MaeMae blog post… with a sideways picture. awesome.) was featured in a special save the date story. How funny that my own face is in there?!?! I also think it’s funny/sweet/ironic how many layers of photos are in that save the date: the photo itself is a photo of a photo, Brides took a photo of the postcard to put in the story, and I took a photo of the mag! Four layers? Thank you to
Shannon Leith who originally took that engagement photo.

The other invitation suite I create especially for a story that was about how to create a wedding theme based on a runway look. My designer was
Bottega Veneta and the Spring 2010 ready-to-wear collection we focused on had lots of white with shots of bright fuchsia, turquoise, and yellow. The cake that was created for the story and my stationery look so similar! I wonder if the baker got a sneak peak of my pieces or if we just think so much alike. Love it.
