As part of our new blog to be featured on our website and our Facebook page, we would like to talk about our wonderful vendors as they a very important part of our event business. We provide our clients with a preferred vendors list of people we recommend.
RiverCrest’s preferred vendor list is very exclusive and only those who we consider to be the very best in their industry make the cut. Some of the requirements are:
- They have worked with us or our clients several times and have a spotless reputation.
- Their quality of work and customer service is superior to that of your peers
Most of all thank you to our vendors for your hard work and dedication!
Our February 2017 Partner of the Month is: Paper Rock Scissors
- What inspired you to become a Graphic Designer? I was in the Financial Services industry when I first graduated college. I was always a creative type, so about 6 years into my corporate career, I went back to University of the Arts to learn graphic design. I fell in love with what I could create digitally through the software, but also balance with my artistic abilities in calligraphy and hand-work.
- How long have you been in business? I left my previous job in 2010 – so I have been growing Paper Rock Scissors over the last 6 years on a full time basis.
- What do you think of DIY invitations? I always say that there are places with invitations where you can certainly DIY. Paper selection and Printing are not usually the places that I recommend to start getting into DIY – these are some of the more complex portions of invitations, and letting a professional handle that part is always a good idea. However, we have many couples who opt to add ribbons, handwrite their own envelope addresses, and finish their invitations with wax seals as their DIY and to add that additional element of personalization.
- What is a fun fact that people should know about you? My husband and I just got married on November 5, 2016, so I can completely relate to planning a wedding! It can be completely overwhelming but don’t wait till the last minute for anything – try to do as much as possible ahead of time (especially if you are going to DIY!)
- Give me the best advice for newlyweds? Many of the things that come up both during the wedding planning process, and right after as newlyweds, can be resolved through a new perspective. Take a deep breath – and then assess the situation a few hours later and see how you feel then.
- What is your favorite step in the invitation design process? My favorite step is the proofing of the invitation – having our couples be able to see their names in print really makes the wedding tangible and finally feel real. I can’t tell you how many couples tell me they cry when they see their names in print.
