About Online Wedding Stationers
Wedding stationery has come a long way in the past 10 years. The sheer amount of variety and choice available to engaged couples looking to buy the perfect wedding invitation suite is staggering. From classic to modern, floral to vintage, and everything in between.
In addition, when terms like thermography, foil-pressed, pearlescent paper, or bracket trim get thrown around, it can feel overwhelming. One almost needs a PhD in stationery just to feel reassured that your purchase is the right one!
Don't worry, we understand. Which is why we designed this wedding stationery comparison tool as a resource to enable you to quickly and easily find wedding stationery you'll love.
"Okay, Great. But who is the BEST online wedding stationer?"
We thought you might ask that question!
Like many gray areas in life, it depends. There truly are a number of companies that provide an outstanding customer experience and stationery products to satisfy couples who want a themed wedding invite, formal look, vintage, rustic, or any other number of styles.
How We Rate & Compare Wedding Stationers
At Love & Lavender, we employ a dedicated team of stationery experts who thoroughly evaluate dozens of wedding stationery websites every single month. The criteria of assessment include:
- Value for Money
- Variety of designs & types
- Customer Service Experience
- Paper, Envelopes, and Printing Techniques
- Website usability (desktop/mobile/tablet)
Each of these factors is given a score, adding up to an overall rating out of 100 for the website. All this data is used by our stationery finder to filter our featured wedding stationers and present users with the right wedding stationery company for them.
Style & Design Choice
Certain stationers choose to focus on one primary style (like whimsical), whereas others go for a broad approach and include a wide variety of invitation styles, formats, and even material.
We assigned a rating for style and design based on two main factors: how many styles were available for wedding invitations as well as the overall number of wedding invites on a website.
Online stationery web tools are feature rich. If you are inclined, you can customize nearly every aspect of your stationery suite. For those with an sense of design, or who know exactly what they want, this is a good thing.
Customization tools help you change text, colors, font, and even the position of individual elements on any stationery item. Some of the bigger name independent stationery companies have made easy to use applications that most people can figure out with little trouble.
Many of the review guides that we offer also show how to order stationery with step-by-step images.
Paper & Envelope Options
Paper (card stock) is an important part of wedding stationery. Thick card stock usually costs more, but provides a luxury look, feel, and experience for wedding guests. Thinner card stock can be great for a budget friendly wedding and still look amazing.

The backbone of any company is customer service. Marketing may help a company attract customers and get them in the door, but service is what helps great companies grow and thrive! Each company we review and list must have a focus on providing a good customer service experience. We know things can go wrong with an order, but its how the company deals with a problem to provide a solution that matters.
Service ratings are based on tangible aspects such as if the company has a dedicated toll free phone number, an FAQ section on their website, easy email access, or even live chat. In addition, we may contact companies directly to get a sense of their customer service quality and helpfulness.
We know our experience is only one data point, which is why all our reviews include other platforms - like WeddingWire or Google Trusted Stores - that also include wedding stationery reviews.
Value for Money
In our minds the term value for money really just means, 'Were my expectations met or exceeded, and would I do business with this company again?'
We look at the little extra touches that a stationery company offers like free digital proofs, sample wedding stationery packs at no extra charge, reasonable shipping rates, and more.
Coupons & Discounts
Remember that a lot of online stores offer coupons that you can use to receive free shipping or a percentage discount, especially around the holiday seasons. Many times a coupon code or discount will be prominently displayed on a stationery company's website (or automatically applied), so don't worry that you have to go hunting around.
FYI: Love & Lavender offers a free bridal deals section where you might be able to find a few discounts on wedding stationery, along with other bridal buys too!
