Crane & Company Papermakers

Pick up a $1 bill. Feel that rich, heavy texture? That’s Crane & Company paper. The high-quality, 100 percent cotton construction has made Crane’s paper the standard for elegant correspondence and very official documents (from legal wills to cold, hard cash) everywhere. Why should your wedding invitations be any different? This stationery can be easily customized: You choose the paper color, ink color, type style (most are classic, simple, and commanding), and whether you’d like the type engraved or thermographed. With tradition comes experience, and Crane’s knowledgeable staff walks you through the entire process, from sending save-the-date cards to choosing additional embossings or designs.
