Welcome to An Siopa Páipéar aka The Paper Shop. I came across this beautiful wedding stationery at the Wedding and Honeymoon Show in the RDS last year and fell in love. What I love about this brand is it’s authenticity. The designs are original, simple and are reasonably priced.
Located in Cavan, Corrine, (a US native who has fallen in love with Ireland) is the owner and designer. Everything she makes is made with love. Her philosophy is that the invitation is the first impression your guests have of your wedding day and she designs every invitation with that in mind.
An Siopa Páipéar offer pre-designed invitations and self assembly invitations (a great way to save a bit of money) that can be ordered online as well as a complete bespoke design service that includes seeded/plantable wedding invitations that will bloom into wildflowers when planted.
“We use this sustainable seeded paper for wedding invitations. The paper is made from the bark of the daphne bush which regenerated naturally. The paper is acid free and your purchase of this paper will benefit the economic enterprise of rural craftspeople in Nepal. Wildflower seeds are embedded in the paper and if properly cared for the paper will bloom. Your guests can actually plant one of your invitations! We include a note informing guests on how to plant.”
In addition to a complete offering of wedding stationery (invitations, guest information cards, save the dates, etc.) they also offer mass booklets, programmes, seating charts, place cards, menus, thank you cards.
