Most amazing wedding invitations EVER! Have had so many compliments.
Clean, crisp, modern invitations dressed in timelessly beautiful fabrics...
That was the seed that grew into Blue Magpie Invitations. The idea that paper can be so much more expressive, so much more beautiful, with the addition of distinctive fabrics like silk, brocade, burlap, and vintage cotton prints. You feel the fabric right out of the envelope, and you feel the love, joy, and excitement surrounding that special event.
Over time, we've grown to see that by layering different materials and techniques—for instance, combining burlap with silk or hand-embossing on kraft paper—we are mirroring our clients' desires to combine a little bit of rustic with a little bit of luxury, a desire to follow tradition but with an unexpected twist.
We are so privileged to work with our clients at such amazing moments of their lives—whether it's to celebrate a birth, a milestone birthday, or the joining of two lives and families—and are incredibly honored to have worked with some of the best event planners around the country and to have been featured in national publications such as Brides Magazine and The Knot.
In addition to the items you see in our shop, we are always available for custom orders. You can see examples of our custom work on our website and blog at www.bluemagpieinvitations.com (link on the right).

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Sales tax (at 9.0%) will be applied to the order plus shipping costs on sales within the state of California.
Invitation orders will usually be shipped via FedEx Ground. All other orders will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail. To the extent possible, all shipments will be sent with tracking and will be fully insured.
All orders will be shipped through the United States Postal Service with the exact service to be determined by the availability of tracking and insurance to your country. Because transit time and time in customs can vary, we are unable to guarantee delivery by a specific date. Please be aware that you will be responsible for any customs or duties that might apply and that we are, unfortunately, unable to provide you with an estimate as to how much that might be. We are currently only shipping internationally to Canada, Australia, and the U.K.
In our experience, if you are purchasing paper products for an event such as a wedding or other celebration, items will ship at one of 3 times:
(1) about 6 months before the event for Save the Dates,
(2) about 3 months before the event for Invitations and any Invitation Add-Ons, such as Additional Inserts, Response Envelopes, Return Address Stamps, etc., and
(3) about 2 weeks before the event for Day-Of Items, such as Programs, Escort Cards, Menus, etc.
Therefore, when you are looking at shipping costs, please consider that Save the Dates will often ship by themselves, Invitations will either ship by themselves or with additional items tagged on (meaning you'll pay the main shipping cost on the Invitations PLUS the "With Another Item" shipping cost for things like Additional Inserts, Response Envelopes, and Return Address Stamps), and Day-Of Items will generally be shipped as a group (again you'll most likely be paying the main shipping cost on only ONE Day-Of Item PLUS the "With Another Item" shipping cost for any additional items like Programs, Escort Cards, and Menus).
