Laser cut wedding invitations are a hot trend in 2016.  Here at Sofia Invitations, we have been designing and making laser cut invitations for 3 years.  We have learned many things about this market, and hope to give you some advice for your consideration when purchasing a laser cut invitation (or any stationery items that are of value)

Let’s talk about “Made in America” products:



Let’s start off by acknowledging that your wedding day is a very important day to you.  You may have been thinking about this day for years, and possibly planning it for over one year.  And you probably realize that many things could go wrong with your wedding day, some of which you may take with a grain of salt (my wedding cake turned out awful, but we made a good laugh out of it).

Keeping this in mind, I do not recommend gambling on purchasing wedding invitations or other paper goods (such as laser cut favor boxes for example) from a country that does not speak your native language.  You never know what could go wrong with communication. You want to be sure you will receive your product on time, and you will get what you ordered!



I believe the best, most creative, top notch designs and craftsmanship will always be from our wonderful country, America.  We have the best designs schools here, and I am proud to say I graduated from one of them….Rhode Island School of Design


A MADE IN AMERICA company can give you THE BEST attention when ordering your products, especially for custom designs.  No one else can communicate with you and understand you better, than a company here in America.


And finally….. wouldn’t you prefer to support our country? Keep the jobs here.  By purchasing a product made in America, you are supporting an individual or family.  And we thank you for that!


Etsy has MANY sellers  that are not producing their products in America.  Do not be fooled by low prices.  Do your homework, and make sure you know where your invitations or other items are being made before you buy them.

We hope this little bit of information helps you when you are doing your research for wedding invitations, or other products for your special day!
