Congratulations! Santa Baby brought you that “one little thing…a ring!” Now it’s time to let everyone know you’re getting hitched. A customized save the date is the best way to let all your guests know when you’re getting married and what your celebration is all about. Here’s a round-up of some of our favorite save the date styles.

Watercolor is quickly becoming one of our favorite ways to incorporate rich, beautiful color. On this particular piece our couple wanted something minimal but with personality. We think the mix of clean text and a wash of color perfectly met both of these requests.

We’re all about gold foil. Borders, patterns, calligraphy—as far as we’re concerned everything look fabulous in foil. If you want to share your engagment photos with your friends and family adding it layered onto a gold foil piece is both personalized and classy.

Tickets, luggage tags and travel inspired designs are perfect for destination weddings. Get everyone pumped to book their flights to your fabulous celebration. Bon Voyage!

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.

The business card stamps are back, baby!! I am so excited that we can offer them again PLLUS I added a mulititude of new designs as well as the option to have the text in black (instead of just the reverse).

These are perfect for branding several different stationery pieces – business cards, letterheads, notecards, etc etc! You can also mix things up with different ink and paper colors. I have also had people turn them into ex libris (from the library of) stamps and “from the kitchen of” stamps. The possiblities are endless!

Interested in a custom order instead of any of the designs offered? We can do it!! For the same size stamp the cost is $98. Email us at info@maemaepaperie.com and we can get you started.

If you don’t consider yourself very crafty and have never used stamps before I would highly recommend going with the “outline” version instead of the “fill.”  Below is half of the designs (there is a fill and outline version for every design). You can order it today in the shop. Happy stamping!!

Hi, my bloggies! I hope your fall is clipping along famously. Nutty Buddy (yes, the squirrel in the fashionable scarf…) and I wanted to share what’s new in the shop and a sweet treat for you all. Type FALL2011 when you check out for a 20% discount! Just a little treat from me to you. Happy shopping! xx, Mae

Oftentimes I try to push suggest new ideas to clients for printing or presentation. Dana was such a champ and jumped on board with the stamp invitation idea. I first made a rough design in the computer and after editing that together I hand drew the invitation, extra info piece, and address stamp to make them feel, well, hand-drawn. Those designs were turned into a huge stamp, medium stamp, and little stamp respectively that Dana and her bridesmaids stamped onto kraft paper. Yay, baby.

Martha Stewart Weddings and
Green Wedding Shoes.

I saw someone post about the new
Martha Stewart Magazine on Saturday right before I was headed off to a friend’s wedding. I dropped everything, hustled to Target and frantically started thumbing through the pages to find – yes! – there was my stamp !!!! I think I was smiling for about an hour straight after that (and then smiled more at the wedding after, of course!) Mind you I had an alarm set to go off Monday since I thought that’s when it was coming out, so when the alarm went off yesterday I just smiled and looked over at the mag on my desk.

Two years ago I made a list of goals for my business and emailed them to Jae. When shuffling through his desk a few weeks ago I found the email printed out and as I looked through the goals for each year I was so happy to see I was keeping up with my dreams! These were my 2011 goals:

1. build wedding line of 20 suites (done!)
2. get featured in Martha Stewart weddings (done!)
3. visit the National Stationery Show (done!)

Thank you to all of my supporters and friends out there for encouraging me and helping me achieve my goals! Time to start dreaming some more up…

If you want to get the stamp that is in the new Martha Stewart Weddings issue please enter “dreams” at checkout for 20% off your order.

My bestie Whit has always been an inspiration to me. She may even be the cause of my current rubber stamp obsession. Since we were young she has always been an avid stamp collector and everyone was talking about when she created party invitations from a huge dress rubber stamp (seen above). Of course I had my mom drive me to the nearest Michaels and bought one too. Duh. And I still have it.

Whit has grown up to be a beautiful artist and currently works as the display coordinator at Anthroplogie. Wow. No biggie. Her talents span far beyond creating beautiful window and other installation displays. She is a marvelous painter and sculptor. These are her new business cards created from a stamp so that she can switch up her ink and paper choices whenever she wants. You can also use them to create letterheads!

Don’t miss her image journal blog
Her White Sunrise. One of my absolute favs. And it still would be even if I didn’t know her.

Want your own? Buy one at the
shoppe for $64. Choose from four designs!


My inbox was flooded by all you wonderful bloggies asking about the stamp featured yesterday. I have added these initial stamps to the shop and you can get your own with an ink pad for $34
here! You can also order your own with a 10% discount by typing STAMP in the checkout until this Sunday. Interested in a more customized stamp, something bigger, or a self-inking stamp? Email me at megan@maemaepaperie.com to get started :) xxx

Stamps have become my latest obsession. I feel like I peer pressure all my clients to make a rubber stamp with me. Thankfully they all cave :) But really they are so genius. You can purchase one piece and customize just about anything. And they look super cute sitting on a desk. My old college rommie, Britt, wanted to create stationery for her globe-trotting sister, Morgan. Since she can’t carry too many things with her a stamp is perfect because she can collect little papers and envelopes as she goes and put her mark on them. Want your own? Email me today at: megan@maemaepaperie.com. Thanks for always thinking of me to create gifts for you loved ones Britt!. xxx

p.s. my stamp manufacturer’s motto is: “everyone needs at least one rubber stamp.” GENIUS. Makes me chuckle every time.
