Printable Notecards - They're Back!

I'm in the middle of mixing up the e.m.papers printable stationery collection right now. I'm bringing back some printable stationery items - in every category including wedding printables, everyday printables, printable calendars as well as printable wall art - and will be phasing out older printable designs.

It was run by two great guys. One Valentine’s Day one...

As with all e.m.papers wedding printables you can download a sample and try it out first.  Just click the link under the 'TRY IT OUT FIRST' text.  This menu is really suited for a wedding reception with a contemporary or urban vibe. The designs unapologetic use of black and white makes for a striking contrast (and is easy to read). I used 'Master of Break' for the header (see this Fonty Friday describing what I like about...
