Every event is unique. Never-been-done-before unique. At Copper Willow, we believe your stationery & invitations should be just as original. They should celebrate that moment in time, surrounded by people you know and love, on an occasion that can only be represented once. Our designers take the time to get to know you and your style, the aesthetic and feel of the venue, the colors, the season...all the way down to how you want your guests to feel when they open the invitation. Whether you are having 30 or 300 guests at your event, every invitation is an opportunity to personally reach out to every guest and send them a preview of your special day.
At Copper Willow, we do not have books and binders of pre-made samples. We will present you with boxes of client work. Every item was intimately designed, printed, and delivered. Every paper was chosen by a client and created especially for them. We will welcome you to look over our past work, find some things you are drawn to, and feel inspired. We will coach you through the design selection process as you feel through stacks of papers to find the perfect fit. We encourage you to touch the printed letters, tie the twine, fold the envelope flaps, feel the weight of the paper. This process is pure joy. Our wheels are turning as we work with you and you're enjoying the choices, the colors, the papers, the lettering...and more!
VENUES WORKED AT:
Copper Willow designs and prints custom wedding invitations, bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah invitations, business stationery, and more. We specialize in letterpress printing and also offer foil stamping, digital laser printing, and giclee printing. We also do our own bindery such as duplexing, hole drilling, and die-cutting with final touches of assembly like ribbons, envelope liners, pocket folds, belly bands, tags, and more!
We are committed to helping you find papers that you LOVE and that fit your budget. Prices vary widely depending on the type of project, the processes used, and the quantity you need. During the consultation, we fully explain our prices so you can make informed decisions and maximize the impact of your papers. For 100 wedding invitation sets (including invitation, reply card, and 2 envelopes), expect to spend:
$800 for digital printing on 100# cardstock $1200 for one color letterpress on 2ply cotton $1500 for one color foil on 2ply cotton.
That said, our minimum order is $500 and the average price for 100 invitation sets is closer to $1800. Keep in mind that the lion's share of the cost is in the design and set-up, so small orders will cost more per piece than large orders.

REAL CLIENT REVIEWS:
"My mother in law and I worked on our save the dates, invitation suite, and thank you stationery with Jill. We were blown away by how well she captured what we wanted. All of these were printed much quicker than I was expecting. We even had table numbers and escort cards printed a few weeks before wedding and they were finished just in time. We would definitely recommend Copper Willow to anyone who wants quality invitations! We look forward to working with them for our next big event." -April
"We loved working with Jill! My soon to be husband didn't like any of the options I presented from the Internet and so he found Copper Willow. We came prepared for our appointment by working on our wording the night before and our appointment was a breeze. Jill had great options to pick from and we found several we liked but found a common theme that was our favorite and Jill helped us expand our theme. She seemed to know exactly what would work for us. The invites came out great and 1/3 of the price of what the Internet options quoted! Can't wait for Jill to help us with our menu and tables cards and more!" -Lacey
"For something as important as my wedding I knew that I wanted custom invitations to set the mood. I worked with Megan to build my invitation suite and wedding day papers and she did an incredible job!! I was amazed at how she was able to figure out what I wanted when I didn't even really know myself. During our consultation she helped my and my husband explore different options and samples from their extensive portfolio, and when she showed us the final proof it was exactly what we had hoped for. And when we picked up the final product, I was blown away!!! The quality of the letterpress printing was outstanding! And they have a calligrapher in house the provided beautiful custom work for the design. Copper Willow does it all! I highly recommend their studio for gorgeous custom wedding papers. You won't be disappointed." -David
