Loved these! Very unique cards that I used for a 1940s themed invitation.

For the Love of Paper

As a children's book author and illustrator, I was looking for something to keep me creative between books, which usually I'm working on for 4-6 months at a time. I have always loved paper and typography and decided it would be fun to try designing wedding invitations and social stationery. Eventually I opened Borrowed & Blue Invitations in 2010 after working out some designs I thought people might like.

In the beginning there was a lot of trial and error, finding the right combination of designs and how to gain interest in them. But soon I had happy customers who began referring me to friends and family. I now run the entire print shop and business out my home studio along with my mom, Terrie Haley, who co-designs and manages B&B. When you order a Borrowed & Blue invitation, we design, print, and assemble it entirely ourselves. Borrowed & Blue prides itself on handmade one-of-a-kind beautiful invitations. Enjoy!

Welcome to Borrowed & Blue! Please feel free to message me if you don't see the answer to your question below. Thanks!!


Borrowed & Blue prides itself on making everything from scratch, the way you would with one of your grandmother's old cookie recipes. From start to finish everything is handmade in-house. All of the vintage or found papers featured as liners or invitations in my shop are meticulously collected by me from various locations, some of which are as old at the 1800s. Although I cannot offer the same type of discounts as many of the online wedding invitation vendors, I can promise you a unique and one-of-a-kind invitation created especially for both you and your fiancee.


A minimum order of 20 is required on all invitation and save the date orders, unless otherwise stated in the listing.


You will receive an electronic proof within 3 days once you have purchased the deposit for your listing.

Two rounds of complimentary proofs are included in your proofing fee. Each additional proof requested after the first two will be a $10 charge per proof.



All paper is made from 100% recycled content and created using renewable energy sources.


Liners are available in all of the colors shown in my color chart. Patterned liners are available but are subject to change depending on availability. All liners are cut by hand which allows for a wide range of options to choose from.

Yes, all liners can be swapped out between invitations.

No, all samples arrive as shown in the listing. Once you purchase a deposit for the design you have chosen, you will receive an electronic proof that will include wording specific to your event.
