We also offer many gorgeous embellishments because we believe that your dream suite is created by focusing on the details! A custom monogram wax seal, a hand drawn map of your hometown where you’ll say your “I Dos” and your guest’s names in gorgeous, hand created calligraphy: these are the details that make your wedding invitation unique & memorable.

Our Garden Rose suite features all the dusty rose your heart desires! A letterpress invitation with a hand torn edge creates the ultimate romantic, garden-y feel. A pop of deep greens in the floral liner sets this suite apart!

Our Seaside Soiree suite features both a beautiful custom church sketch & custom map of the cute little town where this shindig took place! Deep navy, light gray & textured white paper matched this couple's wedding decor perfectly.

A blush wax seal & a peony envelope liner are the perfect embellishments for this gold raised ink on handmade cotton paper suite. 

Our Midsummer Nights Dream suite features beautiful dusty rose and gold ink on handmade paper with a embossed ampersand between the couple's calligraphied names. Pops of deep green in the details card + envelope liner complete this suite. 

Our City of Brotherly Love suite features a plethora of custom artwork -- the sketch of the Philly skyline includes the couple's venue (One North Broad), their engagement location (the Art Museum gazebo) & it is all laid out as if standing on their Philly apartment's rooftop. The stars adorning their RSVP card pay homage to the stars on the ceiling of One North Broad, and the sketch of Ben Franklin is a replica of the statue in One North Broad's ballroom. A wax seal incorporates the couple's monogram which is featured here, and throughout their day of stationery.

- Mary & Nicholas

Her energy, patience, and creativity were no match to any other. She created a masterpiece, my custom, dream wedding invitation. After searching the Philadelphia area for a timeless, yet affordable invitation, I was not impressed by the generic designs everyone was selling. Then, Katy came to the rescue, all the way from Lewes, Delaware! Everything I worked on with Katy was one of a kind. I knew I wanted calligraphy on my envelopes, but she was able to incorporate her beautiful handwriting into the entire suite. She completely understood my vision and her genuine excitement made stressful wedding planning such a joy. She truly cared about every detail, which gave me a sense of relief. Communicating through the phone and email was a breeze because she literally answered all my questions and requests immediately. From the first phone call to the very last email, wishing us the best on our actual wedding day, Katy put her all into our wedding invitations. She is a calligrapher, designer, and friend, all in one.

My experience with Katy was, hands down, the best part of planning my wedding!

- Maredith & Justin

We are so thrilled with our wedding invitations and received so many compliments! Katy personally designed our entire wedding suite based on our style, examples we had, and our budget. We were able to work with Katy at each stage of the process, from paper types, monograms, fonts, and wording. Our suite is uniquely our own and represents our wedding perfectly! And that’s before the beautiful calligraphy! We got so many phone calls after our invitations were sent out asking “who? And wow!” Beyond her work, Katy is professional, responsive, accommodating, and collaborative to ensure the finished product is exactly what you want. I cannot say more good things about Katy except to look no further for your wedding invitations and day of needs!"

Katy is amazing to work with and a true professional!

- Nicole & Joe

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and collaborating on weddings together for years. When it came time for our wedding we had a clear vision and wanted a mix of high style, fun, and polish. Its been one of our favorite parts of planning our own wedding and Katy is the reason why. I can't recommend her enough."

Katy’s custom pieces created the most amazing look and completely nail our vision.

- Caitlin & Joe

Katy came highly recommended by two of my friends! I could not have been happier with the final product - every detail from the invitations to the dinner menus caught the attention of my guests.
Katy is super passionate about her work and superseded all my expectations! I had an exceptional experience and will use Katy's services again in the future. Thank you for everything, Katy! 

I could not have been happier with the final product

- Lauren & CHris

Katy was an absolute dream to work with! She listened to everything I wanted and turned it into a reality. From table numbers, to wooden seating chart, programs, invites, envelopes, menus, and more.. I couldn't have asked for better! I would HIGHLY recommend using Lewes Lettering Co for your special day. I am in love with everything she created. I wish I could get married all over again just to work with her - The process with seamless and everything turned out FANTASTIC!

 I am in love with everything she created.

- Emily & Matt

I am so thankful I found Katy on Instagram! Katy has been amazing to work with throughout this entire process! Katy made this process fun and exciting! She eased my anxiety by being super organized, by being prompt and clear with her communication via email and phone and by providing consumer friendly online invoices! I would recommend Katy's services to anyone! Katy has been so trustworthy and wonderful to work with. She created an amazing, high quality, product! We love her and her beautiful calligraphy!

 Katy Has been so trustworthy and wonderful to work with.

Yes, we are happy to send you paper samples and samples of past invitations when possible! Send an inquiry today so we can discuss what you'd like to see in person!

Because our process is completely custom, we ideally like to begin the process 6-10 months before your big day! We always strive to have your invitations delivered to you 3 months before your bid day so that you can send them out within the 6-10 week suggested window. We are sometimes able to accommodate rush orders, so please feel free to get in touch even if you're wedding is right around the corner!

Absolutely! We are here for you from beginning to end - i.e. from save the dates all the way to thank you notes & everything in between! We love designing day-of stationery, like menus and programs, that coordinate so, so perfectly with your invitations! For more information & photos, check out our Day-Of stationery page to see everything we offer. 

We offer three methods that are sure to make you swoon! 

Raised ink printing creates a beautiful textured ink that sits on top of the many heavy card stock colors available. We can also print your invitation on acrylic or fabric! Metallic colors look especially beautiful in raised-ink, but we can print in any color. 

Foil printing is a printing technique in which a metal plate of your invitation design is heated and then stamped with enough pressure to transfer a thin layer of the foil onto the paper. Unlike raised-ink printing, foil printing will create an impression into the paper. 

Letterpress is a printing technique in which a raised plate of your invitation design is inked and pressed onto luxurious cotton paper. The pressure of the transfer leaves the cotton paper with a deep impression of your invitation.
