Everything can truly be customized at Southern Fried Paper. Chelsea can help create unique branding for your wedding and carry the theme from the invitation to venue signage to the favors. The bride can have as much or as little involvement as she prefers. Some brides have a specific ideas while others are more free flowing. Rest assured that Chelsea has a multitude of ideas and options to share in either case. At the end of the day, the goal is to create stationary art that truly represents the couple and immediately inspires the guests to say, “Yep, that’s them!” The paper selection and the printing process is also tailored to the bride and groom’s unique preferences. Designs can be printed in a variety of processes from letterpress to flat printing. In fact, Chelsea loves to work outside of the traditional 5×7 paper invitation by printing on materials like plastic, wood, fabric, Plexiglass, etc. SFP has designed menus, lighting Gobos, hand-painted wooden signs, and wine tags to name a few. Once the wedding brand is developed, it can translate to just about anything.
