As wedding invitations sent out by email become the norm, printed stationery needs to go the extra mile to seduce with its tactility. Cape Town-based stationery design company Party Bunch & Co is carving out a niche for itself with contemporary designs that keep it old school.
Its packages of beautifully illustrated notecards, invitations and envelopes are artful and individualistic. Party Bunch & Co founder Jozelle du Plessis often starts by making the artworks herself by hand. But also key to creating paper goods that ultimately become keepsakes is that they are printed as limited editions.
Inspired by design and fashion trends, the brand creates up-to-the-minute stationery that provides customers with a memorable element for all occasions from everyday to milestone celebrations.
