Els Cards_Maine Wedding Showcase

El’s Cards will be one of the many talented vendors joining us at the
Maine Wedding Showcase on Sunday, July 31st. We can’t wait!

Tell us a little bit about you & your business.

El’s Cards is a wife and husband team. El started the business in Boston in 1999 and we have been growing since then.  All of our designs feature El’s own watercolor and calligraphy artwork.  Each invitation feels custom, since all of our designs are painted by hand.  All of our fonts were created from El’s own signature calligraphy styles.  We also create custom maps to accompany the wedding invitations, as a special extra piece of the wedding suite.  El’s favorite item to create is the hand painted seating chart with calligraphy.  It’s a totally customized work of art that couples keep and hang on their wall after the wedding day as a special memento.

What makes your business different?

We are different from other stationers, because although we have the convenience of ordering our wedding invitations on line, we are always available to talk with couples and help them make the invitation suites their own.  We take time to work personally with every couple to be sure that they are happy with all the elements of what we create for them.  We also provide a assembly and mailing service when the bride and groom purchase invitations and calligraphy from us…which is always a popular feature because it takes this task of their already full plates!

Why do you like working at Hardy Farm?

The beauty of Hardy Farm is a perfect setting for our invitation style. The venue has a lovely elegance….so much natural beauty in the surroundings and a beautiful backdrop for a wedding day. Our stationery items are a perfect match for such a setting.

Best place that people can find you (to contact you)?

El and Bob work out of their Greenland, NH home studio.  We are here most days and would love to schedule a time to talk about your wedding stationery items. Call us at: 603-373-8605 or 617-696-9196 or email ellen@elscards.com.
