Hi! We’re Samantha & Lauren from East & West Designs. We create wedding invitations and custom stationery items. We love working with brides and grooms to make their paper items for their wedding day super special and personal! We met at Kansas State University getting our Bachelors of Fine Arts degrees in Graphic Design. While at K-State, we both discovered that we wanted the same future: owning our own business. After realizing how much we loved designing wedding invitations for our friends and family, E+W was born! Sharing a business with your best friend is the best thing we could have ever done. We bounce ideas off of each other, we trust each others’ strengths, and we just have a good time (and we think that translate to our work). Everything we create is made with love for love and that is so rewarding!
HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OUT OF YOUR WEDDING STATIONARY:
Start with some good old Pinterest research. You’ll so sooo many ideas out there so don’t feel like you have to find exactly what you want. That’s the beauty of customized invitations; they’re made just for you.
Trust your stationery designer, with our background in design, we have talked with and worked for many clients over time and have gotten used to translating ideas into real world products. What we love to do at East & West is get to know you and what you want your wedding day to look like and that allows us to design something that’s just your style :)
Figure out what’s really important to you! If you really love the idea of calligraphy on your envelopes, we can adjust the budget to make that happen!
