Guys, I am so excited to introduce you to Sofia Invitations and Prints today. I first met Sofia years ago when I worked for a local bridal boutique, and we participated in a couple of styled shoots together. She creates BEAUTIFUL work and serves each of her clients so well. And the good news is --- she is currently accepting custom orders for 2018!!
What is your area of expertise? Custom luxury wedding invitations, letterpress printing, laser cutting, foil printing
What led you to the wedding industry? My desire to use my artistic talents to provide a service while owning my own business, and I love weddings!
What is the best piece of advice you can give couples for planning their wedding? Show your personality! Do whatever you want! It's your special day, so make it memorable.
What is your favorite wedding trend right now? Anything laser cut! I am in love with laser cutting. It is the coolest technology, and there are so many artistic capabilities. You can laser cut or engrave leather, acrylic (plastic), wood, paper, etc. You can make laser engraved leather escort tags, laser cut paper invitations, engraved acrylic signage, So many cool things!
Share your most memorable wedding moment. I married my husband in Costa Rica 8 years ago. Planning a wedding long distance can be tricky, even if you are planning it in a different language (my husband speaks Spanish), mostly because of cultural differences. Our wedding planner asked us what kind of cake we wanted, which we thought we communicated well. The cake ended up being a sheet cake with chocolate eclairs placed on top....it looked so strange! We had to laugh about it, but it created a special memory for us.
Where do you find your inspiration? I really l like to look at runway fashion when I plan my invitation designs for the following year. Right now I am looking at spring 2018 trends with lavender, white textures, and plastic elements. So creative and beautiful!
What do you love most about what you do? The creativity. That my imagination is my only limit. I love being inspired by something (like fashion) and moving the idea to a sketch, then creating the final product (all in my studio with my hands). It's a very fulfilling process.
What is your favorite wedding cake flavor? Lemon.
What is your favorite way to spend a day off? Window shopping. By myself. I have two kids under 4 years old, so I don't get too much time to myself, and it's impossible to shop with little kids!
What is your biggest guilty pleasure? Boxed macaroni and cheese? I know it's terrible for me, but it's so good!
What is your favorite Instagram account to follow? Casa de Perrin
What fun facts should we know about you that would contribute even more to your awesomeness? I really like sci-fi movies, and cheesy horror movies (specifically by Italian directors). My favorite movie is the original Blade Runner movie from 1982. I love to read Stephen King novels, but mostly just his older work.
Where can we find you online other than your website?
