About

Paper Rock Scissor (PRS) is a custom wedding invitation studio specializing in wedding stationery since 2008. Our passion is creating wedding invitations that reflect your unique style to help set the tone for your event. Long before your guests pick out what to wear, where to stay or what gift to give, your wedding invitation is the first way they engage in your special day. From fun and casual, to elegant and timeless, PRS has a passion for all things paper. We will help you bring your vision to life through quality materials, personalized customer service and attention to detail. We invite you to schedule a complimentary one-hour consultation in our South Minneapolis studio.

About Our Process:

    Step 1

    COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION

    Come visit us in our studio (or schedule a time to chat with us on the phone) and we’ll talk through your big day, covering your wedding stationery needs, design preferences, printing techniques, and paper choices. This is also your chance to get your eyes on us and our work to see in person what we’re all about! Within a few days of our meeting we’ll send you a detailed estimate for the option (or options) you liked best.

    Step 2

    WORDING + DEPOSIT

    Yay! You want to work with us! For the next 6 – 9 weeks we’re basically going to be best friends. When you decide to move forward let us know what items from your estimate you’d like to proceed with. We’ll draft an invoice and request a 50% deposit.

    We’ll also start to talk with you about the wording you’d like on your wedding invitation. Some couples know exactly what they’d like to say and send us exact wording, other couples send us a list of names and times and we send back a selection of wording from them to pick and choose from — we’re happy to help as much as you’d like us to!

    Step 3

    ELECTRONIC PROOFING

    This is where you really begin to see the invitation come to life! We’ll take your wording and design preferences and create an electronic version of your wedding invitation suite that we’ll e-mail to you. We include unlimited electronic proofing with our designs, so we can go back and forth on this piece until you’re 100% happy with the look and feel.

    pro-tip: The best way to give us any changes/additions you’d like to make to your invitation suite is to e-mail us one e-mail with all the changes listed. We LOVE chatting on the phone and e-mailing during the work day, but multiple correspondences from you, your fiancé, your mother, etc. can make it difficult to make sure that we’ve covered everything you’d like us to when sending at updated proof.

    Step 4

    APPROVAL/PRODUCTION

    When we email you your final proof, we’ll include a proof approval form, please double check all the highlighted checkpoints on your proof and then return the form to us (e-mail, or mail are fine!). Once we’ve received your approval we’ll move your order into production and will have your items ready for pick-up in 2- 3 weeks. We know that you’ll be excited to get these out to your guests, so if we can finish them faster than that we certainly will!

    Step 5

    AN INVITATION IS BORN

    As soon as we finish your wedding invitations we’ll reach out to you so that you can come in and pick them up. Final payment will be due at this time, then all that’s left is to gather in your wedding party to help stamp and stuff your envelopes — remember that while wine and beer can make any party more fun, but should be kept FAR AWAY from your finished invitations! Pop the bubbly once the final envelope has been sealed and safely put away! 🙂
