The SBB Stationery Range – In Association with The Invitation Gallery

That’s a funny thing about inspiration. Some days, you just wouldn’t know a good idea if it hit you in the pachanga. And other days, clear out of the blue, inspiration strikes. I like those days. In fact, I had one of those days just a couple of months ago. I’d been thinking about a company I’ve introduced you all to beforeThe Invitation Gallery. Showcasing the work of eight super-talented South African designers, the gallery offers beautiful, pre-designed stationery in a huge variety of styles. I think it’s such an awesome way for a couple (no matter where they are based) to have fresh, beautiful stationery even if they can’t afford to go down the bespoke route, and such a great innovation from a South African company. So I was thinking about that, and at the same time I had inspiration boards on the brain as I so often do. I went for my afternoon run, and I guess everything got smooshed together in motion, because when I came back I suddenly thought: We should totally work together. And that is how the Cap Classique Stationery Range was born. Ta Da! You guys, we’re a BRAND now. HOW EXCITING IS THAT?

Here’s the cool part. Every designer chose one of the inspiration boards previously featured here on the website as a starting point, then interpreted it into a stationery suite through their own personal genius. I can’t even describe how exciting it has been seeing some of my favourite boards brought to life, or how much happy dancing I have been doing here as the designs have rolled in and I’ve been able to see what each designer created (not just invitations in each case, but all the other stationery you’ll need for the big day as well!). The suites are completely different – we have something for the vintage bride and groom, something for the modern. Beach wedding suites, rustic suites, sophisticated ones. Lots and lots of different colour combinations. And I love, love, love, love, love them all. I hope you will too – the designers have played out of their boots on these!

So here’s how it works. Head on over to The Invitation Gallery and pick the range that suits you and your wedding. Order it online (which means that you can have this lovely stationery wherever you are based!) or send an email. Choose colours and paper, and let the designers personalise the invitations with your text. Then sit back and have the stationery delivered to your door. AND, if you mention promotional code CAP001 when ordering*, you’ll also receive a free Save The Date emailer worth R350. Now doesn’t that sound just dandy?!

But enough preamble. You want to see the stationery, right? Here’s the very first look at the new collection! In no particular order…
