Indigo Envelope


The team at Indigo Envelope have been creating fine stationery, designing event materials, and crafting logos and brands since 2005. We are proud of the service we provide to our clients, and we enjoy getting to know each person and collaborating with them to make their vision a reality.

Wedding clients can check out our 5-star reviews at The Knot, where we were voted “The Best of the Knot” for a sixth year. We are also thrilled to be a member of The Knot’s Hall of Fame for wedding vendors.

We also offer a full array of creative services to corporations, including customized catalogues for invitations, a huge amount of event materials including large format signage, and communications consulting. Our clients include Duke University, Duke Health, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Triangle Catering Hospitality Group, The Cotton Room and Belt Line Station at Golden Belt, The White House Historical Association, Traveler’s Joy, Simple Registry, SharePlay, Chouquette Chocolates & Confections, and many other businesses, both large and small start-up businesses, many of them makers like us.

The service we provide is personal, not just “personalized,” so we accept only a limited number of bookings. For wedding clients, it is wise to “save the date” on our calendar at least four or five months in advance, if not up to a year. (We already have clients booked for much of 2018 because of word-of-mouth referrals.) Because we work through each event in a collaborative process, totally original collections will take a little bit longer to develop than starting with an existing idea. It’s really nice to have a relaxed schedule that allows for creativity to blossom. We can go from start to finish in seven days, but it is much more creative for everyone if we have at least two or three weeks to work together on your ideas.

Whether you choose an existing concept, or start completely from scratch, we are striving to help you create an experience for your guests. We look at what we doing as creating “art for a day.” In addition to invitations, we can help you to create any branded favors, event details, and guest communications. We want to help you to create a spirit of joy and fun.

We can print ANYTHING on ANYTHING. In addition to creating digital, thermography, and letterpress invitations, we have also printed stage backdrops and even a banner that hung on an hot air balloon. We have vendors for laser cutting, foil stamping, and even glitter coating. Many of our clients appreciate having one-stop shopping with a vendor who can help them to pull all of the printed details together – and create a cohesive experience. This saves our clients a lot of time and stress trying to source and price items. We can get you several quotes for anything you need, too, as part of our service.

Generally, our clients spend $800 to $3,000 with us creating their events. Save-the-Dates start at $1 and invitations range in price from $6 to $14. When you are comparison shopping, you should consider the value of having someone who knows you personally and who really cares about your event specifically. We strive for competitive pricing, but we feel we offer a much greater service to our clients that competing online invitation sources where the options for customization and the interaction are much more limited.

Thank you for considering us. The first step is making an appointment to save a date on our calendar and discuss the possibilities. Call us at our Durham, North Carolina, studio at 919-493-8800 or our Arlington, VA, studio at 571-393-8790.
