Graphics, design and business acumen aside, these women know pretty paper
WHO East Six
WHAT Luxurious wedding stationery
WHEN By appointment only
WHY Celebs and fashionistas flock to this stationer with style
Take two besties, who first met when they were 6 on the Upper East Side, share a love of art, design, business and graphics and what do you get? The duo behind East Six, a custom design company which provides engraved, digital, and letterpress stationery options as varied as they are beautiful. For ten years East Six has been providing crafting luxurious paper suites that show guests the personalities of the couple, and the event to follow. They implement florals, colors, motifs and whatever the couple desires to create stylish paper products that complement wedding. And the team at East Six prides itself on teaching their clients about printing and giving advice about wedding etiquette along the way.
East Six doesn’t stop at invitation suites. They make menus, programs, table numbers and escort cards. Essentially everything you need printed for your event they can make, and will make it stunning. From various ready-to-order options (taking an existing East Six design and customizing it) to creating an original design, East Six gives you plenty of options. While custom orders typically take between 2 to 5 months, if you choose a ready to order option you can get your first proof within a week and receive your paper goods 4-8 weeks after proof approval. But if you’re in a rush, just let them know, accommodations can be made.
For us, it’s about combining something old with something new to strike the perfect balance.—Stacey & Marina
