Wicked Bride is a custom stationery and letterpress company based just outside Boston, Massachusetts. Why Wicked? I'm a sucker for puns, and being from the Boston area and a Halloween bride, the moniker seemed aptly fitting. This whole party started with our 2009 Halloween nuptials. I loved designing our invitations, and once others saw them, requests started pouring in.
I started small, filling stationery orders nights and weekends while working as an art director during my daylight hours. In 2011, we purchased our first home, and the business quickly began taking over the first floor. In May 2012, the studio expanded with the purchase of an 8x12 Chandler & Price New Series letterpress, which we lovingly nicknamed Ella. Not long after bringing home our 1500 pound bundle of joy, I gave up the corporate world to run Wicked Bride full time.
All of our letterpress products are printed locally in our Massachusetts studio and everything is wrapped and packed by hand. I'm proud to use papers and envelopes with a high post-consumer recycled content, and everything in the studio is either recycled or repurposed.
While Wicked Bride is happy to provide any kind of stationery imaginable, I have an abiding love for fine invitations. Why?
An invitation can tell your guests everything they need to know about the event, and about the sender. Is it cool and casual? Is it a formal, fancy-pants affair? An invitation can set the tone for your entire event and many live on as treasured keepsakes in the hands of your guests.
My goal is to craft beautiful, keepsake-worthy stationery that takes your event from special to spectacular. I'm a firm believer that one-size-does-not-fit all (unless you're a poncho) and my eclectic tastes are reflected in my diverse stationery collection. I aim to create show-stopping stationery for your special day, no matter the theme or color scheme.
