custom wedding invitations that tell your story
The Chatty Press is a boutique design studio that believes you deserve more than a pretty invitation. Each custom invitation suite combines original illustrations, stunning typography, and the very best printing techniques. Together we will create an invitation that is truly personal and sets the tone for your wedding day.
Get in touch by filling out my questionnaire, so I can learn all about your stationery needs and wedding day style. From there, I’ll create a custom proposal tailored just for you. You can ask me any invitation questions you have via phone or an in-person consult. Once we are ready to get into the design, I’ll send over a fun little form that will help me craft an invitation that is perfectly you!
I’ll create a mood board based on your wedding day vibe, and stationery dreams, to make sure we are all in sync. Then I’ll create at least two unique sketches of your soon-to-be invitation suite. You’ll both choose which design makes your hearts the happiest and give your feedback before I start the final illustrations & design.
Based on the pencil sketch, I’ll bring your invitation design to life with the perfect color palette, truly original illustrations and amazing typography. You’ll have an additional chance to make some tweaks so that your suite is absolutely perfect! Then the real magic happens!
Once you’ve approved your final design proof, your invitation suite will go to print. Some pieces are produced right here in my studio, while others are printed by a range of fabulous craftspeople and friends. Your suite can be delivered for you to assemble, or I can take care of stamping and mailing on your behalf.
It doesn’t stop there! I’ll take inspiration from your invitation to create all the beautiful details that make your wedding day truly unique. Welcome signs, menus, place cards, favors, programs, napkins.... if you can dream it, I can bring it to life! I want to make your day genuinely represent your love. You deserve to start your lives together in style.
I have to admit, stationery was one of the things that (I thought) I was not going to be super into early on in the wedding planning process. That completely changed as soon as we met Jen! Jen made the process of designing our wedding invitations and day-of stationery so genuinely fun that it quickly became one of my favorite parts of the process!

We would get married again just for more beautiful custom invitation suite awesomeness. Kidding! Mostly.

Jen was able to combine my ideas as a bride that coordinated with our wedding theme and my husbands rustic side to create a perfect invitation that represented us both so well!

From the first sketch that Jen sent us, we were in love with it... She provided us with just enough variations of everything, from design, to colors to paper, that we felt like we had control over the final product, but weren’t too overwhelmed with decisions.
