What is BPB Studio?

BPB Studio is a design studio with tools created by Bliss Paper Boutique to make your shopping, editing and finalization process a better experience. The BPB Studio provides the tools to make creating your personal stationary easy and flexible.


Why was BPB Studio Created?

We heard your requests and we created the solution. Many customers expressed their want to print their invites on pre-cut card stock – as a way to avoid the “hassle” of cutting cardstock to their final size. Typical BPB templates are not set up to fit pre-cut cardstock, they are set up with two or more items per 8.5”x11” sheet.

However, many customers do not want to handle the printing or cutting themselves, so they use websites such as Vistaprint or Shutterfly. Those websites require you to upload a design at the finished size. What does that mean? If you are trying to produce a final invitation (menu card, save the date, etc.) that is sized at 5”x7”, the file you need to upload is 5”x7”. Therefore, uploading the standard 8.5”x11” BPB product size will not work.
