Giveaway: WIN $100 in Wedding Stationery from e.m. papers

Hey, y'all! Remember the time I DIYed ALL the wedding invitations, save-the-dates, and RSVP cards for my wedding AND IT SUCKED? Well, take my advice – SAVE YOURSELVES and DO NOT go at it alone! Instead, I would STRONGLY recommend going the semi-DIYed route and ordering printable wedding suites from a killer designer. Just order, download, and print. You know, printables just like the GORGE ones available from e.m. papers. OR, you can enter to win a e.m. papers wedding stationery printable set (a $100 value!)! Holla!

I've actually been a BIG fan of e.m. papers for a while (and even recommended several of the printables to a friend recently!). Simple, tasteful, and and SUPER affordable – e.m. papers printable wedding correspondence sets are gorgeous, affordable, and really easy to make. Just enter your personal details into each item, print, and cut. Ideally for use on your home printer, but you can also take them to a copy shop or digital printer. Need a different color? Customizations are available!

The decison to go with printable wedding invitations is a good one. First, they're easy to make – just download, type in your information, print, and cut! Second, printing cards or invitations at home is infinitely cheaper than ordering them from a printer or an online print service. Third, they're reusable – you can print them out as many copies as you like, as many times as you want. Fourth, no wait time – you can download an item and produce it within minutes. Lastly, they are eco-friendly – no shipping, no waste, no packaging or trips to the store. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 – Printables = Winning!

According to Eleanor of e.m. papers, "There is no reason you can't have fabulous paper goods for your wedding without spending a ridiculous amount of money or getting bogged down in some sort of impossible craft project trying to replicate "easy" DIY projects that an army of professional stylists have produced for a glossy feature. My wedding invitations and kits are cost effective, not just because they are printables, but because I consider ink usage in the design. They are also easy to produce, just enter your personal details in the fields, print and cut. It's sort of like filling out a tax form, but a lot more fun." AMEN, SISTER!

Another thing that I adore about e.m. papers is the company's story – it's SO everyoneIhaveeverknownOMGhowcool! e.m. papers originally started as a wedding invitation business over 10 years ago by friends, Eleanor and Molly (the 'e' and 'm' in e.m. papers). The business never really got off the ground, mostly because they were young and ambivalent about what they wanted and where their lives would take them. They also couldn't their heads around the business of printing, distributing and selling stationery. The designing part was the most fun, the rest…not so much. Eventually Molly and Eleanor moved on sometime in the summer of 2007 a good friend of theirs was getting married in California, so Eleanor rebirthed e.m. papers as an online company that sold printables!

So, since 2010. e.m.papers has started to focus on DIY printable wedding invitations and paper good templates. Each template is a PDF form which you can personalize and print at home. Eleanor leveraged her skill as a professional graphic designer to "scratch her own itch" and produce wedding invitations, thank you notes, save the dates, escort cards for her own two weddings (to the same guy in two different countries)[Cris's Note: OMG! I'M NOT THE ONLY TWO WEDDING BRIDE!]. Eleanor refined her products through this process, along with helping some of her girlfriends with their weddings. The templates and designs are "by a bride for brides."
