FRONTLINE: Shop Talk 2
The season of giving and receiving invitations, announcements and holiday greetings is upon us. And at no other time of year is the design studio of Two Paper Dolls in Wayne more bustling with activity. Vanessa Kreckel founded Two Paper Dolls back in 2000, after she received overwhelmingly positive feedback about her handmade invitations for her wedding. The success of her business is a credit to her commitment to custom designing everything from holiday greeting cards and wedding invitations to “save the dates” and birth announcements to reflect the personality and style of the sender. This past spring, Kreckel launched, Louella Press, an elegant line of engraved wedding invitations and letterpress note cards now sold in more than 50 of the top stationary stores nationwide. The collection of wedding invitations, printed on the finest paper imported from Germany, includes invitations in non-traditional colors like chocolate brown paired with robin’s egg blue envelopes, and majestic gold invitations with red envelopes. The note card collection is printed on premium white cotton paper using a traditional letterpress technique.
