WHEN By appointment only
WHERE This all-in-one shop can create pretty much anything you can imagine in their midtown studio
There are a few reasons why the city’s top wedding planners bring their brides and grooms to Alpine Creative Group. While the showroom carries a number of designer books from Crane & Co. and William Arthur to Twig & Fig and Elum, their claim to fame is their team of designers who can customize your wedding stationery suite.
From ideation through delivery, brides, moms and wedding planners work with their in-house team to create a suite that reflects your wedding’s style. You’ll see and touch all the options whether you’re looking for super-thick luxe letterpressed papers, laser-cut designs, or even plexi. (You can see a purple plexi invite they designed, here.) And the variety of fonts and rainbow of ink colors are sure to make you and mom dizzy.
After you finalize the design, and before you sign off on it, they’ll test print it so you can proofread the copy as well as review the design and feel the papers (and/or other materials) to ensure that is exactly what you envisioned. Their in-house calligrapher can address each envelope, and if you want, they can design a custom stamp to match the suite too.
And if you find yourself in a worst-case scenario situation, where you need papers printed at the last minute, Alpine can turn things around in a few days. Their in-house printers have been known to do a variety of rush jobs at a moment’s notice, which can come in handy if you need extra menus, programs or invites at the last minute.
While you many not recognize the name, you’ve probably spotted their work. Alpine designs have been featured on Style Me Pretty and Carats & Cake, and in New York magazine’s Weddings issue and Grace Ormonde Wedding Style.
Engraving, embossing, letterpress, thermography, foil stamping and digital printing are all available. Designer book invitations start at $12 per 4-piece set. Custom invitation designs begin at $25 per 4-piece set.
