We recently discovered these wonderfully organic save the date postcards from Night Owl Paper Goods. Founded by Alan Henderson and Jennifer Tatham, Night Owl Paper Goods features modern, yet folksy save the dates which are full of unexpected whimsical details. The team draws inspiration from Swedish and American folk artists as well as the fantastic colors and charming animals found in nature.

Willowy Wood
We love the look of this beautiful one of a kind postcard. It really makes you feel as if the save the date was made of wood and etched with ever so delicate leaves. You can customize the color of the leaves but our favorite is Almond. Your guests are sure to remember this save the date when it arrives in the mail!

Rustic Refinement
Another one of our favorites from Night Owl Paper Goods is called Rustic Refinement. We love the square shape and rounded corners. The design is so simple, yet so stunning. Don’t forget that square cards will cost you a little extra postage – in this case we think it’s worth the investment!

Magnolia Press is one of my favorite designers and is the top designer for Save the Dates at Wedding Paper Divas. That’s why I just had to feature her designs again. You can tell from her designs why her cards are so popular. Below are two of my new favorites from her Save the Date postcard collection.

Restored Calendar
I like Save the Dates that incorporate calendars. It seem so à propos given that you are asking people to save the date in their calendars to come to your wedding. It’s cute in that you get to circle the day of the week in that month’s calendar and you can pick a single photo to include in the rustic looking card. This Save the Date postcard is simply perfect.

Elegant Occasion
This is a beautiful teal colored Save the Date postcard. It gives you the option to include three photographs and has a simple handwriting font. There’s a nice subtle design of the flowing script that trails at the top of and at the bottom of the photos.

Picturebook was founded in 2001 by Liz Malherek & Kelly Verbrick. Their designs are focused on providing connections to people. Their flair is for the simple and yet contemporary. Like Apple they view minimalist design as the key to allow a design to best communicate the intentions of the sender. After all, your personal message to your friends and family in your Save the Date postcard is what is key.

Bright Calendar
I was told that this postcard is actually the 2nd most popular Save the Date in the entire Wedding Paper Divas collection! It is great in that it lets you pick up to 5 pictures to include so you get a ton of chances to show off your new engagement pictures. It’s got a bright color tone with the date of your wedding shown in colorful vivid colors. Just make sure to choose some bright and vivid photos and perhaps mix it up with some black and white photos too.

Sheer Script
This Save the Date postcard is supposedly the fourth most popular card. It is easy to see why it is so popular. It has a simple contemporary design with the Almond colored cursive style script of your wedding nuptials date. I like the text that says Megan and Michael are “tying the knot”. It’s so darling! The only downside is it is just a single photo. But sometimes when you have that one perfect photo of you and your fiancé that is all you need.

Jenny Romanski is the founder of Hello Little One. Her designs are modern and unique and we have featured our picks for Jenny’s best Save the Date Cards and best Save the Date magnets in the past.

The Save the Date postcard on the left is called Be There and has some great vibrant colors that really stand out from other postcards. It is simple and yet modern as all of her designs are. I know the sample does not include a location but I think you can edit and add that if needed.

The card on the right is called Book It and focuses more on the actual date of your wedding nuptials. I love aqua blue as a color and this one works well with the white border and black stripe. Sometimes the simplest of postcards are the best choice for your wedding Save the Dates. And remember darker colored postcards will stand up better in the mailing process since there is no envelope to protect the card. Jenny’s designs are available exclusively from Wedding Paper Divas as they have announced an exclusive partnership.

Magnolia Press is one of the top Save the Date card designers for Wedding Paper Divas. We have reviewed their Save the Date cards in the past here. I don’t know much about the company but I do know that they have some of the most amazing Save the Date postcards. The designs are truly spectacular taking all of the wonderful Save the Date card designs and translating them to the Save the Dates postcard medium.

My two absolute favorite Save the Dates designs from Magnolia Press are the Romantic Tab Postcard and the Stunning Ring Postcard. The silver colors and clean lines of the Romantic Tab postcard allow you to select up to four engagement photos to share with family and loved ones. The Stunning Ring is a really innovative design that puts your photo in the center of an engagement ring! How adorable is that? So adorable!

Below on the left, I also like the String Bow postcard design for a Save the Date postcard. It’s simple with just one photo that has a you guessed it string and bow running across the bottom. After all you are about to tie the knot and get married so why not let folks know in your Save the Dates. The banner across the bottom can include your names, date of the wedding, wedding venue, and more.

The card above on the right in bright red is called Heartfelt Handbill and it really jumps out at you with the rich, vibrant color of love! It reminds me of an old time movie poster and the small heart at the bottom near the wedding Save the Date is perfection defined.

Magnet Save the Dates & Postcards

I am SO excited by this news. Wedding Paper Divas now carries new formats for Save the Dates. In addition to the fantastic Save the Date cards they finally are selling magnet Save the Dates and Postcard Save the Dates!

I’ve been requesting this from the company for years. I think there was a concern that magnets did not fit the high quality expected of Wedding Paper Divas. It’s not an easy process to create a Save the Date magnet that looks clean and not “made at home” if you know what I mean. So they took some time to really do it right!

And I must say they have done a really good job with their Save the Date magnets and Save the Date postcards collections.

They were really smart in that they took some of the best selling Save the Date card designs and used the same or similar designs for magnet Save the Dates. I’ve ordered these magnets and postcards and can attest that the quality is as high as anywhere else I have seen. Wedding Paper Divas definitely did their homework and it’s a welcome addition that gives future brides a solid choice in the magnet and Postcard area.
