I absolutely loved the design, and was expecting this to be a wedding splurge when it arrived. Sadly, I was a little disappointed in the paper quality of the invitation itself (the envelope was very thick though). I think the thickest paper available would have been better, but also more expensive. Not including envelope addressing was also a big decision factor as well. Honestly, a beautiful design though.

About

RACHEL MARVIN CREATIVE IS A DESIGN AND PRINT STUDIO SPECIALIZING IN FINE WEDDING INVITATIONS, EVENT STATIONERY AND CUSTOM DESIGN SERVICES.

After​ creating​ each piece of her own wedding invitations by hand,​
Rachel fell in love with the artful process of stationery design​ and
event branding. Combining this new passion together with her background in
fine art, printmaking,​ illustration​ and visual communication design, Rachel​ started ​ working​ from​ a small,​ makeshift studio space in​ her and husband Kraig's​ one bedroom apartment. From there, Rachel Marvin​ Creative was founded and has
since developed a full​ wedding invitation​ and fine stationery​ line.

Using age-old mediums and vintage inspired art pieces combined with bold typography and clean design, at Rachel Marvin Creative we hope to create refreshing and contemporary pieces that still evoke that feeling of classic timelessness. All of our products are made to order and printed right in our studio, located in historic Richmond, Virginia. We take great care in selecting all of the materials used for each print and stationery piece, paying special attention to utilize recycled materials and paper products that retain their organic, textured appeal.

Blessed by the experience and the great satisfaction that comes with creating handmade items for such happy and memorable events, we love being able to add a little something to that happiness through our line of printed goods.
