Birthday Invitations From Paper Culture

Lately I’ve been doing some of the prep work for Simon’s big 3rd birthday bash. The other day, I reserved the shelter at the park where we are going to hold the party. Earlier this week I designed Thank You cards through Tiny Prints – which by the way, the giveaway is still open if you haven’t yet entered! I was also lucky enough to be chosen to review birthday party invitations at Paper Culture! Perfect timing!

Paper Culture offers a variety of birthday invitations for kids and adults (as well as a selection of holiday cards, baby announcements, other invitations, stationary, and more) . I decided to use a photo birthday invitation. Here are some of the designs that I liked:

Ultimately though, the picture I wanted to use of Simon was a vertical photo, so I chose this one:

bday

The invitations arrived very quickly, and I love how they look!

Those red marks aren’t really there. I just hid the info.

The back of the invitation was also customizable. Again, the green mark is just covering my phone number.

What I love most about the invitations, aside from the awesome photos of Simon (that were actually taken by his teacher at school – thanks!!) is the thickness of the paper. The paper is 130 lb premium matte-feel paper which is 17 pt thick. Most other invitation companies use 110 lb paper that is 13-15 pt thick. I could definitely tell that this is quality paper!

Paper Culture is also a very environmentally friendly company. With every order placed, Paper Culture plants a tree! They use 100% post consumer recycled paper for their cards and envelopes. The invitations I ordered (as well as all their other products) are FSC Certified and produced with wind power. They are slightly textured and white with very subtle hints of recycled paper. I love how the paper feels!

Other unique Paper Culture services are as follows:

  • Paper Culture will mail and address your cards for only the actual cost of the stamp. You can also have the cards sent to you for a flat price of $8.99. They are sent priority mail and arrive in a box, as seen in my pictures above.
  • All of Paper Culture's cards and address labels feature free rounded corners. I love the look of rounded corners!
  • There are 1000's of designs available on the site, all with a distinctive modern aesthetic.
  • Everything is backed by a 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee.

Paper Culture has been featured in tons of publications like Real Simple, People, Martha Stewart, the Wall Street Journal, Parenting and dozens of others. Their Press Room and Press Coverage page provides examples. They have also been endorsed by such celebrities as Jewel, Toby Maguire, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Kerri Walsh, etc. And now they’re being endorsed by me – wow!
