Emily did both our wedding programs and our rehearsal dinner invites! Love both of them.

This is one of the simplest things I've done for my wedding thus far. Trust me--Emily is great! Her designs are simple and clean, she has a fast turn-around, and she's happy to help with any questions you might have. Cannot recommend enough!
emruth started when I was a freshman in college, and it has been evolving along with my interests and passions ever since. I've always been a maker of things, and an etsy shop is a natural outlet for my need to create. My name is Emily Ruth - hence the shop name emruth.
I have a passion for typography, an eye for composition and love of physical objects and pretty things. Being able to hold an actual tactile object is a wonderful feeling of accomplishment - you worked hard, and look! here’s a finished product to prove it. Wedding invitations and stationary things have that feeling for me.
I love letterpress printing, foil embossing, die cuts and fancy folding probably more than than next guy, but that isn't always in the budget. My goal is to provide a low cost option that is still elegant and beautifully designed and easy to customize to any style.
The final designs in my shop started with a scribble in my sketch book and evolved through hours of drawing and tracing paper and referencing old books and perfecting my lines on the computer. It's a super tactile process, and I love every step of the way! I leave the final crafting touches up to you, but I always make a few sample designs to give you ideas and to feed my love of mixing and matching patterns and textures and colors.
Thanks for visiting!
