Katie Cotton of Cotton Rouge & Company


Katie Cotton of Cotton Rouge & Company is a local make up artist and photographer. She does fantastic work, and I couldn’t help but share. She recently did my makeup and took photos of me (see bottom left photo) to use as new head shots for my business, Sofia Invitations and Prints. If you are looking for a makeup artist for your wedding, event, or business….don’t hesitate to hire Katie.  I was so impressed with her professionalism, and I think the photos speak for themselves, she did an amazing job. Thank you Katie!

P.S. The “celebrate” sign was laser cut by our company, The Gilded Line. The calligraphy was by Linda Sung of 37th and Lettery, and photo by Lauren Curry of LC Photography.

We will talk about more local Upstate, SC vendors we love later!

Sofia Invitations at the Taylors Mill

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.untitled-1

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.due_south_1
