It's amazing what a little paper can do for your wedding! A simple save-the-date and invitation with a distinctive font, color and graphic can set the tone for the whole production.
The store specializes in wedding invitations, birth announcements, stationery, kid and party invitations, greeting cards, and more.
We were able to catch up with Mickey Searcy Willett, owner of The Social Type, 5819 Kavanaugh Blvd., Little Rock, and she gave us the inside scoop on things you might not know about her or the store:
Engraved, letterpress or thermography? Letterpress!
One piece of advice that you give brides when it comes to choosing their invites? One piece of advice I always give brides is the invitation you select sets the tone for your wedding. It is the first thing your guests see. It's like making a "first impression." Also, knowing the look you want for your wedding is very important when selecting the invitation.
Colorful or classic? It depends! For wedding invitations, I tend to go more classic elegance. For party invitations, I like to go more colorful and fun. It all depends on the occasion!
Best wedding stationery trend of the season? Edge painting! Edge painting is usually used on a thicker invitation and adds that little extra detail that really sets an invitation apart from others. Other trends include foil letterpressing and calligraphy.
Stationery splurge you wish every bride would go for? Go the whole nine yards! Paper should play a role from the beginning to end. From a save-the-date to stationery and all things in between, including programs, table numbers, food labels. The details bring everything together. And you can never go wrong with 2-color letterpress, edge painting, and envelope liner for invitations and stationary. The extras take a wedding to the next level and top off an unforgettable celebration!
