Briefly share with us what you do?
Prim & Pixie is a graphic design firm who specializes in custom stationery and printed materials for the event industry.
What are you most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others in your industry?
Our vast knowledge of paper and printing, paired with our eye for timeless yet trendy design ensures the highest quality stationery suite at an affordable price point. Whether our clients choose a design from our collection or decide on a custom suite, they will work directly with us to design their invitation suite.
We are graphic designers who are experts in printing, but also focused on the end result of your event- ensuring that every detail is cohesive and even the smallest of details are perfected. We are always thinking through how to make the printed and digitally designed pieces flow seamlessly from the first mailing through the event day.
What would you consider to be your specialty?
Printing on alternative materials to paper.
What are some advantages to hiring you?
Our attention to detail and one-on-one service.
What happens if I decide to DIY or go a cheaper route?
While we understand the sense of reward and accomplishment of creating your own stationery, producing quality invitations requires experience, paper & printing knowledge and lots of resources. Hiring a professional will help relieve the burden of navigating through this very detailed process.
What can a couple expect when they work with you?
We like to think working with us is FUN ☺ You will receive prompt responses to your questions and expert design & etiquette guidance.
What are the trends you’re seeing these days?
The use of modern and loose calligraphy
What is the best advice in the wedding paper world you have for couples?
Order 10-15% more invitations then your guest list calls for.
What is your favorite part of the job?
Doing letterpress checks and ensuring the color & impression are perfect.
What is the one question couples always want answered?
When should I send out the invitations? Etiquette websites will tell you 6-8 weeks but my advice is to mail them about 8.5 weeks out, so the guest receive them 8 weeks before the wedding. This gives your guests enough time to reply and you have enough time to plan your seating arrangement.
How soon in the planning process should the couple hire you?
8 months out.
What is your #1 planning tip for couples?
Invest in a great coordinator.
What’s your favorite wedding moment?
Pronouncement of marriage.
What’s your favorite place to hang out?
My neighborhood, Manhattan Beach.
What’s your favorite thing to do on your free time?
Hang on the beach with my friends and family.
