The invitations are exactly what I wanted! Beautiful graphic on high quality paper. Easy transaction from purchase to receipt. Excellent turnaround time. Invitations arrived well-packaged for mailing. I would not hesitate to recommend to a prospective buyer or to return for a future purchase. Thanks!
Birth of a Birdhouse
I've known since childhood that I needed to run my own business; I never imagined it would happen straight out of college. With a degree in design and a compulsive need to make things (jewelry, bread, messes), making my own wedding invitations was a no-brainer. Soon after the honeymoon, though, the requests started rolling in, and Birdhouse Stationery was born.
After several years and a baby, local bridal shows were no longer fitting in with the life I was building, but Etsy made the perfect match. While a few things have changed (like office hours - kids have a way of making their own schedule), some things have stayed the same. I'm inspired by weddings, babies, and all things paper, and strive to create the perfect stationery for you. All of our products are designed by me, and are always assembled by hand.
We specialize in custom orders, so if you don't see exactly what you're looking for, send me a message and we'll make something unique to you!
Owner, Maker, Designer
I have a BFA in design and a compulsive need to make things. Making my own wedding invitations was followed by many requests from friends to do their weddings, and Birdhouse Stationery was born.
Melissa recently joined Birdhouse Stationery on a part time basis, and is responsible for some of the physical assembly of printed orders.

We HAPPILY accept custom orders, so if you don't see exactly what you are looking for, please message me to set up something just for you!
If you would like a sample of any invitation set, simply purchase the listing of the sample you prefer. While I am unable to change the color of your sample order from what is listed online, full orders always include complimentary font and color changes. Paper swatches are also available to compare choices for envelopes, card stock, and pocket folders.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Due to the time and effort required to create a custom order, a 50% deposit is required before beginning any fully custom order.
To customize any of our designs with your preferred colors, text, and fonts, or even to request a brand-new design, simply send a direct message to begin your order. We will set up a custom listing with your name for you to purchase.
We do our best to complete your order as soon as possible, but many of our products are printed on demand and/or fully custom. Please allow at least 3-6 weeks to complete your order for invitations, programs, and other custom items. If you need your items sooner than that, rush orders may be available for an additional fee.
After your deposit is received, you will receive a digital PDF proof of each and every item in your order, including a digital representation of any assembly where applicable. Up to 3 rounds of digital proofs are included in your order price, so please check very carefully for accuracy before confirming that your order is correct and ready to print. Any additional proofs required will be subject to a $25 charge per proof, and will be added on to your final balance. You will receive a digital proof of each and every item in your order - if you do not view a proof or see an item listed in your final invoice, please check in before approving your order!
When all of your files appear to be 100% correct and ready to print, you will be directed to purchase a custom listing for the remaining balance of your order, as well as sign an electronic proof approval form. At this point, your items will be printed, assembled (where applicable), and shipped to you!
Refunds and Exchanges
If you decide to cancel your order for any reason before approving your files for print, you may do so. Part of your deposit may be returned, but a proofing fee will apply, and the amount will be specific to your order - usually equal to the cost of digital files for each item you've ordered. If you need to cancel your order after approving your file for print, your deposit will not be refunded, and it is highly unlikely that your balance will be able to be refunded either.
After you approve each and every one of your files for printing, it is too late to make changes without incurring additional fees. Any errors left unchanged are not the responsibility of Birdhouse Stationery. If any errors are due to Birdhouse Stationery, we will of course rectify the issue at no cost. Otherwise reprinting, construction, and rush fees may apply. Please take the approval process very seriously and double check each and every line of text, all graphics and color choices, etc.
Any orders of sample invitations may not be returned, and will be printed with sample information only.
Greeting card orders and non-custom shower games may be returned within 30 days of purchase, but shipping charges may not be refunded, and you are responsible for shipping the unused and undamaged product back to us.
Additional policies and FAQs
Expect the design process to take at least 3-6 weeks, plus an additional 1-3 weeks for printing and construction. More time to design is always great, but we also accept rush orders - just let me know what your needs are.
