LOST or OVERWHELMED
when it comes to your wedding stationery?
Are you confused by all the different pricing or terminology? Are you nervous about ordering from a site with no direct human contact? Are you confused about what you really need? If that sounds like you then you’ve come to the right place.
I know firsthand that finding the perfect stationery for your wedding day or other major life milestone can be overwhelming. There are options everywhere and so are the prices and packages. You likely have a lot of questions so the thought of ordering from a site with no human interaction feels a bit scary if you don’t know for sure what you are getting. On the flip side, hiring a designer to design from scratch down to the last detail seems way too expensive, so what do you do?
I love weddings, special events and pretty decor so sitting down with a couple to get to know them, who they are, what they love and then through that creating the perfect stationery package is so special and exciting. For nearly 15 years, I have been working with engaged couples like you to create the perfect wedding stationery package for who you are and the day you are planning. Guiding a couple through the sea of options, getting to their core ideas and then bringing those ideas to life in a beautiful, personalized stationery package is what makes me love getting out of bed every morning.
Hello and welcome to Raspberry Creative. My name is Bethann and I started RC in 2005 as a part-time small business identity design company while living in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Shortly after, I was hired to freelance design for a small retail stationery company and the seed was planted. While I loved working with small businesses to create their identity, I found my true passion in creating stationery for life’s special moments. I remembered my own frustration in finding the perfect wedding invitations before so many custom options were available. I knew then that working with engaged couples to create the perfect wedding stationery for their day was what I wanted to do. In 2010, my husband and I returned to central PA and I went full time with my business opening my Mifflinburg shop. Over the years I have had the pleasure of working with couples across the country and around the world; from Maine to Florida and California, from Canada to the UK, Sweden and Australia. Every couple has a unique story and it’s my goal to reflect that in the stationery I create for them.
When I’m not at work creating some pretty piece of stationery, I’m spending time with my generous and kind husband Brad and our three Basset Hounds, Elwood, L.J. and Stewie. Brad and I are slowly renovating our late 1800s home one room at a time. We also love spending time outside camping, boating and bicycling. We love Jesus and are active in our church. We do our best to keep God at the center of our lives.
When time allows, I also write a lifestyle blog centered around diy projects and home decor with a bit of style and business tips thrown in. It’s a great way for me to satisfy some of my other creative interests and do something for myself outside of my work here.
I take what I do seriously and genuinely have an interest in the people I work. While I enjoy working hard, I’m also a bit goofy and try to have fun even when work is stressful and hectic. I’m the person weird things happen to and I have stories to back it up. One of my favorites was when my chair completely broke in half in the middle of a first client meeting. That’s right! There I am trying to make a great first impression and be “Ms Professional” and my chair breaks in half dropping me to the floor. Talk about first impressions.
The couples and clients I work with become part of the #rcfamily. From our first meeting and throughout the entire project, they are a part of every stage of the process as much or as little as they want to be. Building a good relationship and maintaining clear communication is the key to every successful project and that’s why it’s important to get to know each other at the beginning to make sure we are a good fit for each other. Sure, I’m in business to make a living just like anyone else but I’m not here to push every sale. My success is built on the success of my clients so a good relationship from the start is so important. That’s why so many of my clients stay in touch long after they say “I do”. That’s why I call it my #rcfamily.
