In this Gallery you can find samples of our engraved wood wedding stationery. This includes engraved wood wedding invitation, RSVP cards, wood place cards, wood cover guest books, favor tags, wedding photo albums and so on.
We use laser engraving on 2-ply veneer wood. These engraved wood products are about as thick as the good quality paper ones. They are durable but flexible. They will not break with normal wear and tear. Although of course it is possible to over-bend them and break them.
These wood products do not have added color, which some may see as a disadvantage, but we believe it just gives them even more natural characteristics. We use laser engraving and/or laser cutting to add the design to them.
We laser engrave the wood with your information and add the design by engraving and/or laser cutting.
For the wood guest books and albums, behind the front cover there is a color paper page which shows through the cutout on the front cover. You can use for this sheet one of the main color of your wedding and it gives a truly unique contrast. As if a wood cover album was not unique enough already…
Pages are black or marble color. And you can use glue, tape or photo corners to fix your photos on them if you use them as photo albums or have it as a guest book and collect the warm wishes of all your family and friends in style.
Lastly, we use 3 rings to hold the wood albums and guest books together. There are several colors of rings you can choose from.
Currently we offer 9 wood species for wood albums: aspen, maple, cherry, birch, birdseye maple, oak, walnut, eastern and western cedar; and 7 wood species for invitation, cards and other smaller pieces: aspen, maple, cherry, birch, oak, walnut and western cedar.
In order to keep the harmony, we would suggest to use one wood specie for all pieces if you order your whole wedding stationery from us.
Some of these wood species has more contrast between the engraved surface and the wood itself, like aspen, cherry or oak, some of them, like birch has less. Some of them has richer wood grain, some has less characteristic grain. Porous woods, such as oak and walnut do not engrave as well due to the open grain on the surface of the wood. Engraving on a dark wood like walnut, may not appear as legible as compared to lighter colored wood species.
It is very interesting and important to know that variation in color, figure and other natural characteristics including thickness, translucency, texture, grain pattern, wood knots, amount of grain and color, including within the same wood specie, can occur.
Wood products are eco-friendly, natural and use way less wood for their covers than paper cover albums. And last but not least, they smell amazing!
