Invites & Stationery

Courtesy of Albertine Press

Stationer Shelley Barandes of Albertine Press calls herself a "sometime-architect who just loved paper more," and her eye for design is definitely apparent in this beautiful "Jet Set" of note cards. Featuring original collages of antique stamps from around the world, the cards have a vintage, old-world vibe that conjures up visions of the golden age of travel. And no wonder: the cards ($14 for a six-pack of 4) are created by hand on antique presses at Shelley's studio in Somerville, Massachusetts. You can use them to dash off witty honeymoon notes to all your friends or give them to a travel-loving bridesmaid. Take a look at all six designs here and be sure to check out Shelley's hilariously quirky wedding stationary, ranging from tax-themed save-the-date cards (for a April 15th wedding) to invitations featuring pairs of blue footed boobies. —Kathryn Papanek
