Custom Invitations

The Invitation Maven is a full-service Custom Invitation Design Company dedicated to helping you create your perfect event.

Custom Letterpress Invitation

What Is A Truly Custom Invitation™?

If you search “custom invitations” on the web, you’ll find all kinds of websites offering beautiful invitations where you can “customize” some of the text. Some even allow you to “customize” some of the design elements. But these are not “truly custom” designs. You’re using one of the company’s stock designs and all you’re doing is personalizing it for your event.

What we do at Invitation Maven is actually start with a blank canvas and design a full invitation suite just for you. Your colors, your theme, your wishes and your dreams, all coordinated into a cohesive look that tells your story. And while we’re at it, we get your guests excited to be part of your story, too!

Why Custom?

Custom invitations for your special event are much better and more personal than what you’ll find in generic catalogs or on most “custom” invitation websites. At Invitation Maven, we believe in creating more than just the final invitation. We seek to help capture the moments of this milestone, whatever the event. We help you enjoy the process, because there are memories in that, too. It’s all part of your special event. And wouldn’t it be a shame to use someone else’s impersonal “personalized” invitation for such a special occasion?

Invitations for Any Event

We create invitations for all kinds of events, from weddings to baby showers, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs to Birthday parties, and even Corporate and Charity Events. Learn more about what kinds of event we make custom invitations for.

What If I Like An Invitation I See Elsewhere?

Show us! We love to use ideas you find as inspiration! And why not? The things you love are what make your design yours! Our specialty is to take those ideas that you like, combine it with our design expertise, and create something that’s unique and personal to you and your event. It’s part of the process. And you won’t get that experience by ordering out of a catalog or by personalizing someone else’s design.

It’s Not Just An Invitation To An Event...It’s An Experience

Even if you see something you like online, you can’t necessarily guarantee the quality of what you’re looking at. All Invitation Maven designs use the highest quality materials and latest design trends to not only create an invitation to an event, but also to create a work of art. And because this is a process, we want all of our clients to enjoy every part of it…not just the invitation design, but the party planning process as well. Creating a custom invitation is an integral piece of that puzzle.

To us, it’s not just about the finished product. We also seek to create a memorable experience for each client. Designing an invitation suite can be a daunting task, and we work hard to make it simple and fun. So whatever it is you can imagine (and even if you who can’t imagine anything yet), we work hard to make the process easy and enjoyable.

Okay, so you’ve decided that you want to work with the Invitation Maven for your event. What are some of the choices you get to make?

Language and Grammar

Your invitation is an art piece, not a term paper. Don’t worry if you have run-on sentences or start every line and proper noun with a lowercase letter. It doesn’t matter if you’re missing a comma or spell “and” with an ampersand. We get to be fun and creative! And if you need something in a foreign language, Invitation Maven can do that, too! Invitation Maven will suggest common wording for certain elements within the invitation suite, but if you want to get creative with something, have at it!

Promotional Discount

Invitation Maven takes extreme pride our work and we are proud of the custom designs we create for our clients. We therefore include an attribution and our website address in small text on the back of each invitation to protect our designs and to promote our business. Our pricing includes a Promotional Discount on most pieces in exchange for the reference. You may request that we remove this information. You won't receive the Promotional Discount, but it's no problem at all. We leave that up to you.
