We don’t just sell stationery. We offer a luxury experience. Luxury means letting go, knowing that the details are handled, and the final product will be simply perfect.

At Southern Fried Paper, we provide that peace of mind. Our clients know that their invitations, stationery, and day-of details will be delivered on time, and of the highest quality. We obsess over the smallest details, and you relax. It’s been our formula for success since our inception.

What We Value

Creativity, Imagination, and Vision
Although many of our clients choose traditional paper and printing methods, we love creating branded details from non-traditional materials. Acrylic, wood, leather, velvet, and metal are just a few of the elements we’ve used, with dazzling results.

A Luxury Process
Exceptional Customer Service and Expertise
We’re passionate about presenting you with a memorable, stress-free experience. You’re included in the process and will receive a custom proposal and detailed timeline that outlines every step. Important details such as when to expect a proof, when we need feedback, and when your guest lists are due are all included in this schedule.

Exceptional Quality
Exquisite Materials and Thoughtful Production
We are absolute perfectionists, personally quality-checking even the smallest details. These small touches are what make our turn-key experience so remarkable.
For example, if we are mailing for you, we mail the complete invitation suite to ourselves prior to the actual mail date. We also confirm the postage rate in person with USPS twice.

Communication and Input
Our approach to custom design is a fully interactive, collaborative process.
We’re here to listen, guide you through each stage, and help you make decisions. Once your design is approved, we’ll send your custom pieces to our seasoned printing partners who are the best in the business.
