Last week we featured this marvelous invitation designed and printed by Adventure Storeys. Today we’re happy to introduce Taylor, one of the creative minds behind the scenes. Enjoy!

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

Back in the day, my husband Nathan and I met in art school. We bonded over art and design, and over time, one thing led to another, until we were designing our own wedding invitations. We loved the process of making something that was uniquely us and had the opportunity to really set the tone for what we wanted out of the wedding. These days, as a husband-wife team, Nathan is my go-to big idea man, while I do all the production and day-to-day. It’s so great to always have a male perspective on the design concept and wording. I think it shows as a very balanced vibe in our invitations, which makes them stand out against all the pink and lace.

 Get to Know a Wedding Stationer: Fancy Designs

Today’s stationer interview is with Ashley of Fancy Designs, based in Baton Rouge, LA! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I think I more or less stumbled into the wedding invitation business. In 2009 I opened an Etsy account where I was making greeting card designs. One day a lady messaged me and asked if I could turn one of those designs into a wedding invitation. I tried to explain to her that I didn’t know much about making invitations, but she let me know she had complete faith in my abilities. That one kind soul, who took the time to let me know that she believed in me, turned my greeting card business into an invitation business. By the following year my invitation designs were selling worldwide on Etsy and a print on demand website. I think my natural obsession with weddings, my love for people, and my desire to design has helped expand my little accident into a flourishing business!

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

My first wedding invitations were designed for friends who couldn’t find what they were looking for.

I opened my Etsy shop in 2012 so that I could continue to help those couples looking for the missing piece in such a monumental part of their lives. I love what I do, and am glad to be so warmly welcomed in the wedding planning community.
