Welcome to the colour of Merlot!

Imagine the Ritz Carlton, Louis Vuitton and Mercedes Benz

The premium packaging paper for some of the most exclusive brands in the world shouts sophisticated luxury for your wedding day.

Gmund’s papers are premium and known throughout the globe for their environmental credentials and unrivalled quality.

Wedding invites are that rare piece of exciting mail that arrives as little morsels of luxury and devotions of love, followed by visions of joyous celebrations to come. The Merlot card stock will deliver a grand opening and start your wedding story in total style!

Merlot evokes some perfect moody, modern romance for those that dare to create a richer colour palette. Perfect for Autumn and Winter and reflects an outgoing, confident couple who want to impress their wedding stationery selection from the first moment.

We started this invitation design story with the white card invitations and then added a little edginess with the Merlot semi-circle and kept the modern vibe trending on a classic base. The front-facing card was left clean and quite powerful, with the detail saved for the back.

If you want to stand out this season, consider adding shapes. Specialty shapes are the perfect way to add personality and offer some attractive layering options that reflect a fresh contemporary vibe on an oh-so classy! Elegant base. It is vital to represent the affair hosts and how the wedding event will feel and look. The Merlot semi-circle brilliantly conveys a strong presence, along with confidence and the desire to be individual.

Our designers took the Merlot stationery range on a dining adventure, with the theme carrying through to the menus with a sleek, uncluttered front-facing card and the menu printed in white on the reverse side. The Merlot card complimented an alfresco reception of pale timber and white settings, Copper, Sand and Grey splashes, finished with Antique Pink, Warm Ochre and Plum, then garnished with rich Magenta and pops of Lavender. They were bordered with gold cutlery for that extra glamour alongside timeless white flatware.

The place card we kept fresh in white with Merlot colour text to balance the strong theme creating a table setting that feels like a menu of delights for the guest to experience.

The Colors Matt range, Gmund’s most modern paper, has an air of superiority with its clever, systematic colour system and classic matte surface – perfect for your ultimate statement invitation and place setting goals.

Who could not think of “putting on the Ritz!” or at least getting new modern outfits when preparing for this day of days at one of Australia’s most awarded venues, Maleny Manor nestled in the hills of the romantic Sunshine Coast Hinterland?
