Power of an RSVP Envelope!

RSVP envelopes is most likely the last thing you care about – yes? No. Please don’t undermine the power of an RSVP envelope.

It is such an important part of the invitation suite. It is the element to bring in color contrast, material contrast and movement; it adds so much impact to that first impression when your guests open the invitation package.  And really, that’s what all that matters.

The package has arrived! At this point, it’s the play of color, material, texture and shape really….

RSVP envelopes is an opportunity to add extra style, your own expression and attention to detail. Since it is somewhat independent, you may even take it a little further.

Natural tones and textures

 

 

Taking it even further: Hand printed and hand made 

We recently produced these hand printed envelopes on very vibrant colored high quality Italian paper. These add a splash of color without giving that impressions of ‘just lot of paper’, which is a common risk when a lot of elements are added to the invitation suite.

 

RSVP envelopes made from special papers from around the world

Samvadiya carries the best quality hand made papers from around the world! We hand pick them!

 

This one element can greatly add to the tactile and sensory experience of your guests and at the end this could become the statement of your style! A well chosen, well coordinated, pre-addressed RSVP envelope!

ये कहाँ की दोस्ती है, के बने हैं दोस्त नसीह
कोई चारसाज़ होता, कोई ग़मगुज़ार होता

Mirza Ghalib (Urdu poet)

What kind of friendship is this, as my friends have now become advisers;
for all I need is a partner, a healer…

Forever question, how to choose an invitation…

Six years and counting, Samvadiya eats, drinks and breathes invitations. I sit back and ask myself, well how should someone pick an invitation?. There are millions of styles, how can there ever be a best one? Really, there isn’t a best one.
I had a client, who chose our Vrinda Van invite and I did not really know why. I did not figure that out until we were done with the first round of proofing and she asked for the larger tree in the Vrinda Van composition to be added to the RSVP card. She said “This tree resembles just the one at our wedding location.”. Ah ha, there was the answer. So dear Samvadiya customers and beloved brides and grooms, choose one with the elements you are closely connected to!

Find elements and representations that link to your experiences and memories; landmarks that are significant to your love. And then you’ve got a priceless invitation!

 

 

आज फिर दिल ने एक तमन्ना की
आज फिर दिल को हमने समझाया

Once again, I wished for you
Once again,  I held my desires…

Samvadiya Library

Welcome to Samvadiya!

Samvadiya is committed to creating absolutely beautiful paper stationery. In this pursuit, Samvadiya takes inspiration from medieval Indian, Mughal and Persian Art styles and feed it back into today’s cultural juxtaposition and ultra modern technology laden world! The reason is simple – Samvadiya draws human attention to the soft, beautiful and intriguing organic world that minds are far from figuring out. While we may have made giant strides into virtual connectivity, computational sciences, we are very far from cracking the code behind patterns of growing plants, flowers and many naturally existing wonders. Soft lotus petals, freely spawning leaflets and graceful birds continue to enchant us. When minds are tiered from analytical challenges, they find unlimited pleasure gazing at things that are simply beautiful! These simple and beautiful representations form the fabric of ancient Arts which resulted from learning from observation.

Samvadiya has found a way to bring this beauty to today’s life in a meaningful way of using it in paper articles. Samvadiya (‘messenger’) staying true to it’s meaning, makes it possible for you to send or convey your special message – when you know that a typed email will not be sufficient.

It is our honest effort to provide high quality, original paper stationery and invites that are almost ‘works of art’.

(Samvadiya Cards, Invitations and paper stationery use original art only which is developed in-house. We are passionately committed to revive Indian and other ethnic arts and motifs from late medieval era and the early modern period)

Motivation – ‘Samvadiya’ the story

Asian Indians in the olden days hired a Samvadiya (Hindi for ‘messenger’) to convey special or important messages across the villages. A Samvadiya was not an ordinary person rather someone who was well trained in the art of conveying messages – in the right style, tone and language.

A wedding invitation is a modern day Samvadiya, which conveys the message of your most important day to all those who matter to you. The delicate designs and themes of SamvadiyaCards balance culture, style and uniqueness making sure that your message is conveyed in the manner you want!
