This super chic stationery store lets you choose and customise invites at the click of a button

When was the last time you received a real, physical invite to something? Or the last time you sent one? Melbourne stationers Paperlust are a breath of fresh A4 paper air in an increasingly digital world. From their Oakleigh South studio, the Paperlust team helps clients create custom paper invitations and announcements for all the big milestones in life, like birthdays, babies, bat mitzvahs and weddings.  

Not that the paper purveyors forgo the web entirely in their practice, though. Instead, the crew take the best parts of designing online (that is, the convenience) and combine it with the expertise of a real designer who gives it the once-over to ensure a premium product.

The designs at Paperlust are always on-trend, a feat the studio has accomplished by constantly asking for submissions from designers (who earn commission if their designs are used). Currently, the store features more than 500 wedding invitation designs alone from a pool of 150 designers. Whether you want your wedding to be modern, classic, elegant, rustic or formal, chances are you’ll find a design you like. Which you can then tailor so it’s perfect for you and your boo.

While Paperlust specialise in wedding invitations, it’s no one-trick pony. The studio also designs and prints custom invitations for basically any event you can think of, as well as save-the-dates, seating charts, menus and welcome signs. Plus, Paperlust offers free express shipping and envelopes with Australian orders. Check out the website to find out more.
