We get very busy with wedding invitation orders at this time of the year. I like to take a moment and look back at things we have made in the past (it’s been almost 7 years of business!). Here is a little collage of letterpress printing I have done for many different customers, each one in a different color for a completely different design. I will always love letterpress!
Sofia Invitations and our parent company, Pinpoint Creative Studio, have been located at the Taylors Mill in Taylors, South Carolina for about 2 years now. We absolutely love it here.
As our businesses have grown we have moved in and out of 3 studios. Our current studio is much larger and needs a lot of work, but allows us even more room to grow. We will show you pictures when it is more complete.
We think the Taylors Mill is absolutely beautiful. It is a diamond in the rough. It has a wonderful community of like-minded artists, and the setting is inspirational for us. You can feel the history here, people working hard to create beautiful products since 1924 (when it was a cotton mill). Even closer to heart for us, we have fine art backgrounds in textile design and illustration. Having our studio at the Taylors Mill just feels right to us. We welcome you to come check it out.
Sofia Invitations and Pinpoint Creative Studio are open by appointment only Monday – Friday during working hours, but you can drive over to the mill and enjoy the scenery any time. We also recommend checking out Due South Coffee.
All products are made by yours truly, Sofia Invitations and Prints, and our sister company, The Gilded Line.

We were recently on Ruffled Blog for the letterpess invitation we designed for The Not Wedding in Greenville, South Carolina! It was really fun to participate! Greenville photographers Angela Cox and Mel Nocks did a fantastic job with our invitation! Pictures below. This invitation can be customized with your wedding colors and words and can be purchased at www.sofiainvitations.com and www.sofiainvitations.etsy.com
Last week Wedding 101 in Greenville, SC featured photographs from the wedding of Maisie and Andrew…. which Sposa Bella Photography expertly shot, and included a photo of the wedding program I custom designed for them. I also worked with a local calligraphy to design their wedding invitations, which we letterpress printed. Here is the photo of the programs, and later I will share a photo of the invitations.
Have you heard of Wedding 101? It’s a fantastic place for brides and grooms to learn about all wedding vendors that may be perfect for their wedding (invitation designers, florists, wedding planners, wedding venues, etc). And the best part is that Wedding 101 is absolutely free. The Sofia Invitations and Prints wedding invitation line can be viewed at the Wedding 101 location in Greenville, South Carolina. Sofia also meets with many of her local customers, by appointment, at Wedding 101. Go check them out! http://greenville.wedding101.net/
