Our customers say:
I would recommend Of The Earth to anyone
Who are we? Well, we are just like many of you, we like things to look a particular way, often our tastes reach beyond our budget. That doesn’t stop us though. We work to create what we want by rolling up our sleeves to make our own paper. We also tear cards by hand, hand dye silk ribbon, print and assemble invitations and we get earth under our nails as we plant and press our own flowers. We work hard to make rustic yet elegant and beautiful things and we offer many ways for you to make those same beautiful things with our do it yourself options.
What else can be said about us? Well, we ship custom wedding invitation orders in just a week and most of our products can ship on the same day for stock items. However, since we offer so many do it yourself options, we do have an overwhelming amount of ordering information to communicate. So what that means is, well, we have a few online organizational issues. Many of our customers are challenged with our navigation menus. We are always working to improve but our primary concern is filling orders correctly, so please forgive us (and call us) if you get a little lost on our web site.
As we started in business by making our own handmade paper wedding invitations, that continues to be our main focus. We offer sheets that can be ordered one at a time or in bulk. Our single sheets sell for $10 each, they measure 18” x 24” and are often enhanced with flower seeds and petals. We have always been earth friendly (see our name) and none of our handmade papers contain tree fibers. We offer recycled options that include up to 100% fiber content. Even the first use fibers are eco-friendly and tree free as they are made with a waste product of the cotton seed oil industry.
Our many invitation designs are custom tailored by paper style, font, layout and size. Each component of every invitation can be ordered individually or as a group. If you like the idea of saving money but just don’t have the time, we will gladly send you a complete invitation package that includes; invitation, reply card, reception card, direction card and envelope ready to be stuffed and addressed at home. If you want to add matching thank you notes, programs and place cards, we have you covered!
Contemporary invitations allow for many options. Today's couples who choose to include directions with their invitation often combine a map, written directions and accommodation information all on one card. Etiquette directs you to make the invitation very simple which we encourage. This will save paper, reduce waste and cut down on costs! You will need a response card if you are having a catered event. Your caterer will need to have a final guest count within two weeks of your event. You can save trees/waste/money if you use the more casual postcard style response.
Our standard shipping and handling fees range from $10 to $25. We do offer free samples and first class mail shipping for smaller, light weight orders. You can estimate the costs by putting the items you like in our shopping cart and navigating through the first part of the checkout process. Handmade paper is light; most of our shipments are under ten pounds. All shipments over $100 in value are sent requiring a signature; the driver will not release the package without that signature. Please be sure to provide an address where there will be someone to sign for the package.
We love to answer your questions so please pick up the phone and call us or use the customer service page to submit your question or request.
