Online Stationery Company Stays on the Chic Side of Kid's Birthday Party Invitations

Parents today are looking for kid's birthday party invitations that are boldly colored and simply designed. Today's hip moms are always on the lookout for something distinctly different for their children, and this includes unique paper that breaks the mold on traditional printed birthday party invitations.

While innovative, contemporary paper designs have traditionally been difficult to find, all of this is changing thanks to Tiny Prints, an online seller of baby announcements and kid's birthday party invitations. Tiny Prints scours the country to find artists who bring a unique flare to designing printed birthday party invitations. What the company has discovered is something parents are lining up to buy.

"Bold colors, simple designs, original typeset, a respect for white space, clean lines and unexpected card formats all help to create a chic party invitation," says Tiny Prints co-founder Laura Ching, who adds that many contemporary invitations come multi-folded or are cut into a shape that fits the theme of the party. While traditional party invitations are more predictable in terms of size and shape of the card, the tone and wording of the invitation, the placement of the text and the color combinations and motifs, more modern invitations offer something new.

"We spend a lot time identifying new trends in color and paper, so that all our designs have a truly modern angle," Ching says. "We love to use bold, unexpected color combinations, playful wording, and always look for ways to present popular design motifs with a slight twist."

As recent new parents themselves, Ching and her husband fell into this urban, trendsetting class. "We saw a huge need for contemporary invitations to suit our needs, as well as many parents around us who had similar tastes," she says. "Since launching our exclusive invitation collection, we have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from many of our customers thanking us for bringing a fresh angle to children's stationery."
