About RBG Color Design

After weeks of researching invitations for my spring 2005 wedding, I still couldn't find what I was looking for. I wanted something whimsical, but not overly feminine; something with bold but elegant colors and motifs; something handmade but polished, clean, and professional; and above all, I was looking for a unique, custom wedding invitation experience with attention to detail and superb customer service. Never finding just what I was looking for, I decided to go the DIY route. All of that searching allowed me to pinpoint the details I wanted to incorporate and after a couple more weeks of researching methods and materials, I came up with a clean, simple, completely handmade ensemble that included a daisy motif against a white, turquoise, and red palette.


Shortly after getting married, my husband and I moved to Boston, where I continued to pursue my interests in art, craft, and design during the four years we spent there. Along the way to a MFA in Studio Art, I spent a year working at a stationery boutique learning the finer points of both traditional and contemporary wedding invitation design and etiquette, and created invitation ensembles for a friend's baby shower, a co-worker's Halloween-themed housewarming gathering, a family party, and even a couple of my own art projects. I have taken (and subsequently taught) courses in screenprinting and graphic design, among other things, learning more about publication design software, designing for print, and repeat pattern screenprinting.

Offered by RBG Color Design, a Paper Crafts and Design Studio, Paper Punch Press, my signature line of unique, contemporary, and completely handmade invitations and stationery, was started in spring 2009. My invitations emphasize overall design, creative color combinations, and die cut motifs with duplex layering.  At this time, I use Etsy for all of my transactions (sample invitation packs are available!); visit my shop for more details on pricing, policies, and how to get started.

Please note that all of the designs you see here and in the shop can be customized with different paper and ink colors, motifs, fonts, etc. I'm also happy to work within a specific budget. Contact me for an initial consultation at no charge.  I look forward to hearing from you!
