Good on Paper is a local design shop based in Berkeley, California. The designer Lisa Wong Jackson has a great sense of style and her Save the Date postcards reflect a simple, California aesthetic. She draws inspiration from life around her including natural elements, organic shapes, and every day simple lines. In addition to partnering with Wedding Paper Divas on stationery she also has a collection of home products and baby products. Her items are also available in retails stores including Anthropologie. It’s definitely all good in my book!

The card on the left is called Exciting Event. I really like the bold grey font and the peach colored power stripes! The save the date postcard on the left is called Classic Calligraphy. This card is so classic indeed.

Cloud Frame
This is a simple Save the Date where the photo is the focus. It’s rounded out by a cloud in the center with important Save the Date info. What is great about Wedding Paper Divas Save the Date postcards is that you can have a special message to your guests printed on the other side. The cloud comes in different colors including aqua, blue, and purple. I really like the little dots that border the cloud. This Save the Date design works well with a muted color photo and particularly works well with black and white photos.

Timber Tag
Good on Paper loves to combine nature into its designs. This Timber Tag Save the Date postcard is no exception with a wood grain element paired with a simple white background. I like the choice of “green” font to go with the nature wedding marriage theme. You can choose different colors for the wood including khaki, grey, and brown. This Save the Date postcard can be paired with a sepia photo to give it a antique wedding celebration feel as you can see in the example below.

Update: Good on Paper has been featured in the latest issues of Brides magazine in the feature story on Leslie and Jeffrey’s wedding in Rutherford which is in wine country near Napa. The entire wedding looks fabulous and the wedding invitations and Save the Dates were beautiful.

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.
