Where Readymade Meets Couture



BARRINGTON, Illinois (January 12, 2015) – billet-doux – mavens of couture stationery and invitations – has launched its first readymade wedding collection, now available direct to consumers nationwide. Previously working with clients on a custom project basis, billet-doux’s ready-to-order line meets the demand for unique, high-quality wedding invitations at a competitive price.

“Our collection feels like a breath of fresh air,” says Melinda McElroy, owner and chief creative officer of billet-doux. “We spent a lot of time drawing inspiration from the marketplace to create a comprehensive collection that has something for everybody. It is reflective of current trends, spun with our unique brand of creativity.”

billet-doux’s new designs incorporate mixed typography, handwritten fonts, hombre color effect, monograms, polka dots, floral patterns, and rustic and rhinestone details. The suites include a variety of style categories from romance to Art Deco, modern to formal, and rustic to whimsical. Each is available with corresponding newlywed stationery, menus, coasters, table numbers, place cards and other event details.

Invitations start as a single-layer flat card that brides may customize without limitations. Letterpress and gold foil specialty printing is also available. “This collection is really where readymade meets couture,” explains McElroy, who started the company in 2005. “The designs are lovely in their own right, but adding layers, a pocket, custom bellyband or other unique details can fully realize a bride’s vision.”

“When searching other retailers, customers are restricted to existing inventory or product lines sold through that store – this is where billet-doux differs,” says McElroy. billet-doux sources and vets ribbons, embellishments, enclosures and fine papers from a diverse vendor base, seeking options that make their bride stand out. “We take customization one step further, regardless of price point,” says McElroy.

“Let’s face it; every bride wants access to items that will make their wedding one of a kind and that’s never going to change,” summarizes McElroy. “And the attention our cards receive is unparalleled to what you’d get off the shelf.”
