Renee Redman: Vintage is making a statement this year from invitations to placemats to napkins. Beautiful styles have reemerged and have been a hot trend for bridal showers, baby showers and weddings.
RR: In 2013, we have been enjoying the beautiful shades of blue from navy to sapphire to aqua to the many tones of green including Emerald, the Pantone color of 2013. Looking ahead to 2014, we look forward to the bold and rich tones of red and claret and oxblood which will give a fresh take on custom gifts.
RR: We are seeing monograms everywhere from initial block monograms to elegant interconnecting script monograms. These have been a very hot trend in 2013 across all segments of the personalized market from paper goods to home accents. There is nothing more unique and sophisticated than a monogram.
RR: Rich and elegant, letterpress features an old world printing technique which dates back to the 1400's. This method has recently made a huge resurgence in popularity and we've created lines exclusive to The Stationery Studio to meet the demand.
RR: Mixing large script letters and clean block fonts gives a fabulous look to typesetting and gives a "must-have" look to anything personalized. This trend has been become quite popular with baby announcements, bridal shower invitations and note cards.
