How would you describe Deliver Paper Studio? We are a refined paper studio aimed at creating conceptually driven wedding invitations for design-conscious brides.
What inspired the company? Deliver was born to fill a void. Over and over we kept seeing the same designs in the wedding world but we knew there was more to wedding paper than just a formula, template or trend. No two brides or couples are identical and we believe the same should be true for design. We knew it took research, attention to detail and a good eye to bring about unique and intentional designs, and that is what we set out to do. It also didn’t hurt we had friends getting married left and right that needed help with designs so we were happy to test the waters individually before taking the leap together into what is now Deliver.
What inspires you? We are incredibly inspired by brides who have a vision but trust us with the outcome. If a bride gives us just an inch of their vision and all of their trust, we run a mile with it hoping to push it as far as we can. Where there is trust there is creative freedom. We are also inspired by tangible design such as texture, shapes, architecture, fine art and textiles. We are currently into studying architectural shapes and light.
What is the best part about working as a team? We would easily say there are so many benefits working as a team. Mostly, it helps with the decision making process. It requires that we slow down and have a conversation to ensure it is the correct decision rather than quickly and solely making one without someone looking over details or designs. Also, we are strong team and enjoy bouncing ideas of each other, which always helps provide creative clarity.
How would you define your style? Our style is a mix of classic typography meets modern use of composition and shapes with a little edge thrown in. We love creating out of simple shapes, lines and paper textures for an overall clean design.
How does Deliver differ from other wedding invitation services? Rather than just create an invitation, we aim to establish a brand which serves as a visual extension of the couple. Every job is full of deep research, exploring various options and fine tuning design in hopes of creating a look and feel that is simple, effective and all their own. Then, from wedding invitations and response cards to wax seals and envelope liners, we want to carry the established identity throughout the wedding to give the guests an overall experience, personally connecting them to the couple and who they are.
What would be your mission for Deliver? We hope to inspire brides to think of their wedding not as a Saturday event or a Pinterest board, but as an atmosphere established by good design and tasteful style.
Tell us a little about Kelly: Kelly is a a curious lady with passion that won’t be beat. Outside of design, music is Kelly’s greatest passion thanks to her dad who had her hooked on Stevie Nicks at the age of four. In her free time, Kelly still loves to shoot film, experiment in the kitchen, find new music and travel to new cities with her husband.
Tell us a little about Sam: Sam is a gentle soul with a smile so big her eyes disappear. When she has a moment, Sam likes to cruise around on her new bike, read a good book or add to her vintage paper and magazine collection (long live paper!). Oh yeah, and she just got engaged!
