Vow to Wow
The question’s been popped and so has the bubbly. You’ve made it Insta official and set the date. Now you’re ready to give your guests a small glimpse into what your big day will look like, with jaw dropping invitations that’ll make them wish they could hyperspeed to your wedding day. Revolution Paper Co. is dedicated to helping LGBTQ+ Couples and Allies celebrate all love equally.
My Design Process Revolves Around You
My creative process is fueled by your love story and wedding-day vision (and a lot of coffee).
Here’s how it works.
The best way to find out if we’re as compatible as Lorelai and Rory is to talk in real life (over coffee if you’re local or via Video Chat if you’re in a galaxy far, far away). After you complete your Dream Wedding Questionnaire, you’ll receive a customized proposal with options to fit your needs and budget.
Get cozy and pour the Veuve ... I want to know everything about how you met and your upcoming wedding. Beyond that, you’ll share the things that make you, you, whether you two love late nights playing Mario Kart on your original 64, binge-watching every episode of Gilmore Girls or date night at the Huskers game, your stationery should absolutely tell your story. During this phase, we’ll also talk details like paper weight, colors, fonts and wording. I want to know exactly how you want your guests to feel when they receive your invitation in their mailbox.
You’ll receive 3 (yes THREE) 100% tailored-to-you design directions based on your story and your vision. I welcome open and honest with your feedback. I want you to LOVE your invitations more than Tyrian loves wine. Once you’ve fallen in love with a design and chosen your final look, I’ll get to work drawing, painting and adding all the color to bring it to life. We’ll make sure every detail is just right during our two in-depth revision sessions and get your suite ready to be printed.
As your partner in planning, I’ll connect with vendors as needed to make sure my colors match the flowers and that your theme is consistently carried through every element.
After you’ve fallen madly in love with your design, it goes off to one of the best printers in the industry. We’ll make sure every name is spelled correctly and that every line is worded inclusively, then I’ll get to work assembling and mailing, making sure your suite looks like a work of art.
No Stress. Just hell yasss.

Zero Stress wedding stationery
To be honest - when I started looking for a stationery designer, I really just wanted someone that could handle all of the nitty-gritty work! I didn’t want to be consumed with the wording and stress of making my own stationery. But, once I met Molly - I knew we would work so well together!
She was so quick to respond and send me design ideas and the design you created for me was something absolutely perfect! I had no idea what I really wanted but she nailed the design! The whole process was easy!!! I gave her our color scheme and chose some papers and Molly made it happen!
THE STATIONERY WAS ONE PART OF THE WEDDING I HAD ZERO STRESS ABOUT! I honestly can’t think of anything about this process that needed to be changed! I had zero issues with Molly or her work or the time you presented it in. Everything was absolutely perfect! Thank you, Molly!!
Molly was amazing to work with and I honestly couldn’t have picked a better person for my wedding stationery + day of details!

My couples can typically expect to spend around $5,500 for 100 custom invitation suites
(invitation plus envelopes, RSVP card and envelopes, and a details card).
Pricing varies based on quantity and any additional items or upgrades you wish to add such as wax seals, vintage postage, letterpress printing, acrylic cards or anything else you have envisioned for your dream stationery suite. The average couple spends $6,500 on their custom stationery. Once I receive your inquiry and we chat, I’ll be able to deliver a detailed quote tailored to your budget.
READY TO START A WEDDING REVOLUTION?
MY PLUSH PAPER PINKY PROMISE TO YOU
Here’s the truth: I’m a paper snob.
There, I said it. I solemnly swear to design your invitation with paper that makes you feel like you’ve died and gone to paper heaven. None of that lightweight stuff here. When it comes to papers and envelopes, I like ‘em real thick and juicy.
The average couple pays $7,500 for 100 custom invitation suites that include an invitation with lined, pre-addressed, stamped envelopes, RSVP card with lined pre-addressed stamped envelopes, and a details card.
Because no two invitation suites are alike, and your vision is unique, submit my Dream Stationery Questionnaire to get a custom quote with an invitation suite curated just for your budget and vision.
Although Revolution Paper Co is located in Lincoln, NE, I design stationery for couples and party planners all around the world. (My designs have gone as far as Australia which is literally the opposite end of the world!)
Abso-freakin-lutely! If you don’t live in the US, I will carefully package up your stationery and ship it straight to your door ready to be snail-mailed (or hand-delivered) to your guests.
I currently offer digital (flat), letterpress, foil, and thermographic, and laser cut printing options. If you have a dream of something specific–I can quote something special just for you!
Just as an FYI, letterpress, foil and thermographic printing techniques tend to have a longer turnaround time for your custom wedding invitations. So if you are considering one of these techniques for your dream stationery we will need to start the design process further in advance of your big day. These printing methods will also increase the average cost of your suite by $1000-$1500. So be sure sure to keep this in mind if your heart is set on these unique printing styles.
The custom design process on average takes 10-12 weeks, but this varies greatly on the materials and print methods used in the design. I always encourage couples to reach out at least 6 months prior to their big day to ensure there is ample time to bring their stationery vision to life and give their guests time to respond before they need to give their vendors the final headcount.
I always recommend locking in your spot on my calendar at least 8 months to a year out from your wedding. As I only design 12 custom stationery suites per year, locking in your date early will guarantee we get a chance to work together!
If you are considering sending out Save-the-Dates we will need to chat at least a year out from your wedding. If you are on the fence about save the dates, this post may help.
I do not offer digital downloads or custom stationery templates at this time. My mission is to make sure your custom stationery suite is exactly what you envisioned and so I have partnered with the best printers and hand assemble every suite to make sure that happens.
