PurpleTrail has a solid collection of wedding stationery for couples to choose from, and provides easy to use tools to add personalized information. You can completely change it up but adding, editing, moving things around to make it truly your own one-of-kind piece of art.  They also offer partial and full mailing service, so that you don’t have to mail if you don’t the time or want to hassle of mailing stationery.

Stationery Styles

Purpletrail has 267 different wedding invitations for you to browse.  Unlike many other online stationers, you are not able to sort by style, but rather by design type (flat, folded, tri-fold and booklet.) Although they have many different invitations to choose from, our opinion is that PurpleTrail is really a conduit to give you inspiration. Their invitations are meant to customize to your liking; for you to edit, add, or delete many elements until you are satisfied with the final product.
