Our save the date concert tickets are beautiful!! They are so perfect for our music themed wedding and the owner was so great in working with me by rushing my order. I will definitely use this shop again!

These are absolutely wonderful! Fun and creative but still classy. Larissa was great to work with, too. The process was quick and simple. We had proofs printed on pearlized ivory and pearlized silver card stick from Staples and ordered envelopes from envelopes.com (all in the picture). Simple, cost effective, and with a gorgeous result. Thanks Larissa!

About

paper & cake… styled together to match!

From the moment larissa & her brother began the design concept on his wedding invites, until the day they assembled the package together, she knew this was something she would love to do every day!

larissa & karin (friend & pastry chef) started Papercake Designs in 2005. They were in it for the LOVE of creating custom wedding invitations styled with cake! Their mission was to be different by customizing the small details that make each couple or event unique, and doing it at a reasonable price! {although it is now only an invitation design studio, they'll never forget the fun times they had in the bake shop + on wedding cake delivery days!}

Finding the right paper & design for each client's event is still larissa's personal passion… the end goal being unique & memorable to not only her brides, but also their guests! ;)

Send an email to start the design process… I can send a custom quote after I know your favorite design. (I can also attach a file to work from once a $50 non-refundable deposit is applied). Plus:
> quantity: count addresses & add 10% more for extras
> I will also need to know a date you are looking to receive your final invitation suite by so I can add you to my production calendar (invites usually go out 6-10 weeks prior to your big day)!
