The Knot Best of Weddings 2018

Indigo Envelope made The Knot’s Best of Weddings for the 6th time!

The Knot is one of the top wedding resources and also the nation’s largest source for wedding news and inspiration. It’s a great resource for both couples and vendors alike therefore we are honored to be given this award.

Indigo Envelope would not be the business it is without our amazing clients! We have them to thank not only for this award, but also for allowing us to create the invitations of their dreams! Often, we hear from new clients that former clients referred them to us. We find that to be best of compliments. Reading the positive reviews makes our jobs very rewarding. Most of all, nothing makes us happier than seeing our client’s smiling faces on their wedding day and knowing we had a small part in that.

Duke Forward Campaign Impact Dinners

The Duke University Forward Campaign has been a huge success, raising over three and a half billion dollars to support meaningful programs at the University.  Make an impact with your fundraising — but let us handle the print details, ranging from invitations to place cards!

Duke Forward Campaign Impact Dinners

If you need 1,000 place cards, table numbers, organizational signs, and more for your corporate event, look no further.  We are thrilled to share a snapshot of our work with Duke University for their Duke Forward campaign.  The place card design included the staggered-line logo for the Duke Forward initiative, while the table numbers focused providing clear directions for so many people to find a seat, with a large simple design and backing of Duke blue.

This dinner was the culmination of a yearlong invitation and marketing project to assist the university’s development team in meeting their goal to move Duke Forward. Over the year, we designed and printed thousands of batches of custom laser-cut invitations and many other details for the special events that were brought to cities all over the United States to promote the campaign.

It’s been a great year, and we congratulate Duke on this amazing accomplishment. We are so happy to have played a small role in this effort.

Navy and Coral Duke Chapel Wedding

We had the pleasure of working with Melanie and Greg, a couple who wanted to celebrate their connections to Durham, NC, and Washington, DC, as well as their historic wedding venue at Duke Chapel in Durham.

Navy and Coral Duke Chapel Wedding

For Melanie and Greg’s wedding, we created a vintage inspired design that drew on the stone work at Duke Chapel for inspiration, including some original drawings based off the carved cathedral. Pieces also included skylines, a custom monogram, and a balance between traditional and modern elements.

Glitz & Glamour Durham Wedding

We often get requests for location-themed invitations and the skyline images we create are a popular choice. This time we were able to amp up the glam! This Durham wedding invitation suite features a blush pink and gold color scheme. To top it off we added a bold gold glitter band wrap. The combination really catches your eye.

Durham Wedding Details

The programs include an illustration of Duke Chapel, where the ceremony was held. Dorothy and John had us create many extra details for their reception held at Bay 7 in the American Tobacco Campus. Extras include menus, thank you notes, and even a sign suggesting guests try the night’s signature drink “The Crash Davis”. The name being a reference to the couple’s newly shared last name.  

Congrats Dorothy & John, and thank you for choosing us to be a part of your special event!
