Why We Love Vellum... OK, OK, Why We're OBSESSED with Vellum

Anyone who follows along on any of our social media channels has probably noticed that we have kind of thing for vellum...and with good reason: IT'S FRIGGIN' FABULOUS. Seriously though, it's sheer, translucent finish gives it a dreamy, romantic and ethereal quality that's just so. freaking. beautiful.

It's surface is just meant for ink - anything from soft, muted tones, to big, bold jewel tones. We use it in so many ways! Like the above invitation, or also as a layer in an invitation, or my personal favorite - the Vellum Wrap!

  If bold is more your thang, might we suggest a fun, flirty floral wrap with bold shades of burgundy and navy, and gold accents.

Sometimes a vellum wrap, or the full invitation may be a little too modern (we're down with classic and traditional too!) - in which case, it's always fun to consider vellum in a more subtle use, like perhaps an info insert,

The vellum fun doesn't stop at invitations... Day of Stationery is a place where this fabulous material can really shine! Our favorite? Vellum Menus! They can be done in so many styles, like these long and lean, with white ink and a simple illustrated leaf,

  Seriously - white ink on everything.

We adore these escort cards as well - with the deckled edge, the hand dyed silk ribbon and finished with wax seals!
