On Paper tied for first place in the Stationer category.
Invitations are the first glimpse guests get of a couple’s upcoming nuptials. And like every other detail that goes into your wedding, you want your invitation suite to be perfect and reflective of your impeccable style.
For more than 20 years, On Paper has been offering customers made-to-order collections of wedding paper goods, from save-the-dates to wedding invitations to such day-of accessories as place cards, menus, seating charts, guest books and more, says owner Margaret Lydy-Meeker, who acquired the Short North store in early 2020.
“For many brides, their wedding is the largest party they’ll ever throw, so they should do it the way they want,” Lydy-Meeker says.
Specializing in letterpress, digital and thermography printing, On Paper also offers engraving and foil stamping, says Quierston Byers, store manager and lead custom sales associate. But what brides appreciate the most, she says, is the personalized customer service they get from On Paper.
“It starts with a consultation to discuss theme and design elements, as well as their budget,” Byers says. “The first step is to get the save-the-dates out,” she adds. “Every wedding and timeline is so individualized, so start planning nine months to a year in advance.” And if a bride has no idea where to start, “that’s where we come in and are able to teach them,” Lydy-Meeker says.
On Paper employs its own line of exclusive designs created by in-house graphic designer Lynsey Penny, as well as other fine-quality outside designs and printers. Penny says font trends include modern, handwritten and floral styles.
Much of On Paper’s business comes from word-of-mouth referrals and positive online reviews. “It’s a nice validation, especially in today’s quick-fix world,” Penny says. “We are here for [couples] every step of the way.”
