Hello...


Hello everyone!
I have wanted to do this for so long and kept putting on the back burner.  I wanted to start out with a bang but that idea actually kept me from starting…so I am just starting!! (Be kind).

My name is Amy Hammond and I am the owner of RockPaperScissorsInvitations.com. It is a company I started thinking about when looking for my birth announcements when I was pregnant with triplets. There were no cute triplet birth announcements.  Needless to say, I was put on bed rest at 18 weeks and my proactive shopping for birth announcements had to wait!  Flash-forward 11 years later;  my babies are not babies anymore and RockPaperscissors is no longer a little side job I just do for fun. I want to thank all of our loyal customers that I see year after year. We also went online about 6 years ago and business has been super.
I  love helping people find the perfect holiday photo cards, custom stationery, personalized gift items or wedding invitations. I love seeing the end product and hearing that “everyone loved my holiday cards last year…how are we going to top that..”.  I also hope to share what I have learned in the last 11 years being in the stationery business and being a busy mom. In the midst of all this, we are also right in the middle of a major remodel on our new home.  I thought I would add something to my plate….So, here goes.

To start, etiquette is something I get asked about all the time. Etiquette in correspondence is especially important, but sometimes tricky. According to Emily Post in regards to the dreaded RSVP, you should “always” RSVP immediately. RSVP is French for "please respond" (r├ępondez s'il vous pla├«t). Your most important obligation as a guest is to respond to the invitation immediately, especially if you are unable to attend. At the very least, it allows your host and hostess enough time to give an accurate count to the caterer or plan for party favors etc. This practice even applys to email and verbal invitations.  It is a practice that has fallen off as of late, but one that is greatly appreciated by the host or hostess. It is a nice gesture on your part and it shows that the invitation is something important to you. I always recommend putting a RSVP date by on your invitations because some people will RSVP the night before if you do not give them a date.

Emily Post also advises you to respect your invitation. You should “not ask your host or hostess if you can bring a date or your children. The invitation will be addressed to the people invited. If you may bring a guest, your invitation will read "Mr. John Phelps and guest." If your children are invited, they will either receive their own personal invitations or their names will be listed under yours on the envelope. This is not the time to question your host's decision, to argue or beg for an exception. And, please, do not add their names to a reply card or show up with them anyway!”
