Inviting Invites described in three words:
Quality, Stylish, Personalized Service

What services does Inviting Invites offer?
Inviting Invites is a full-service, one-stop shopping experience. For anything that involves paper and personalized items for your wedding, I've got you covered. I love what I do, whether it's offering etiquette or design advice, style inspiration or planning tips. Whatever a bride's style may be, I am committed to helping her find the perfect stationery to make her wedding a beautiful success.

From engagement party invitations, save-the-date cards, wedding invitations and enclosures, to programs, reception accessories (menus, escort cards, place cards, table cards, napkins favor tags), and thank-you notes... I do it all.

Inviting Invites offers digital, thermography, and letterpress printing. There is also a myriad of different card stock and pocket fold options to choose from. And for those who do not want to hand write their guest addresses, I provide digital calligraphy services.

What does Inviting Invites specialize in?
Inviting Invites specializes in creating unique pocket wedding invitations that can be fully customized. Pocket invites pack a lot inside their trendy little pocket folds. Practical and modern they keep all of your wedding details neat and organized. I offer 55+ pocket invitation colors and various pocket styles that are sure to meet any bride's budget.

What got you interested in this industry and what is the most rewarding part of your job?
Interestingly enough, when I planned my wedding I worked with a vendor that was a home-based business. It was a wonderful experience and I loved the personalized customer service that I received. I wanted to provide that same experience to my brides.

I often hear brides comment when they pick up their invitations that seeing everything in print makes it so real for them and that the process was so much easier than they would have thought. That, to me, is great to hear. Planning a wedding can be stressful, so if I can help reduce even a little bit of that stress and give you exactly what you're looking for, the my work is complete!

If you weren't working with invitations, favors, or calligraphy, what would you be doing?
I love what I do and I never think of doing any other job. Brides always ask me if I get bored looking at invitations every day and I have to say that I don't. That's when you know you are in the right job! I love paper, fonts, color and good design. So any other job that I would have to include those things!

What is your favorite part about creating invites for weddings? 
My absolute favorite part of my job is meeting the brides, and being able to contribute something to their special day. Each bride has a different vision and design style. no two invitations are ever alike and that is what keeps me inspired. I love what I do and have fun creating a memorable invitation that reflects that bride's vision.

Name one thing that sets Inviting Invites apart from its competitors:
I provide exceptional personalized, one-on-one customer service helping each bride to select invitations that fit their individual style, taste and budget. It's important to me to make the invitation selection easy and stress-free.
