A guide to local invitation design sources
When it comes to parties, the invitation is the first thing guests will see. Invites do more than simply convey when and where to show up; they set the party tone from the get-go. Here are some Wilmington designers who still customize invites for parties, from baby showers to weddings.
Invitations featured are by: Mindy & Angie's Fine Paper. Angie Slagle, half of the stationery business team, designs invitations and announcements for customers. Click here to read about how Mindy and Angie got their start. (www.mindyandangiesfinepaper.com)
Lady Pilot Letterpres. From her letterpress studio, Emily Wismer makes fun and whimsical invites, made either in advance or customized to the event. (www.ladypilotpress.com)
The Fisherman’s Wife. ): For this nautical-themed wedding invitation, a designer took the couple’s idea and ran with it, creating the logo and tracking down the rope ribbon. The store also does a mix of ready-made and customized invites. (www.thefishermanswife.com).
