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

Laser cut wedding invitations are a hot trend in 2016.  Here at Sofia Invitations, we have been designing and making laser cut invitations for 3 years.  We have learned many things about this market, and hope to give you some advice for your consideration when purchasing a laser cut invitation (or any stationery items that are of value)

Let’s talk about “Made in America” products:

WHY SHOULD “MADE IN AMERICA” MATTER TO YOU?

 YOUR WEDDING DAY:

Let’s start off by acknowledging that your wedding day is a very important day to you.  You may have been thinking about this day for years, and possibly planning it for over one year.  And you probably realize that many things could go wrong with your wedding day, some of which you may take with a grain of salt (my wedding cake turned out awful, but we made a good laugh out of it).

Keeping this in mind, I do not recommend gambling on purchasing wedding invitations or other paper goods (such as laser cut favor boxes for example) from a country that does not speak your native language.  You never know what could go wrong with communication. You want to be sure you will receive your product on time, and you will get what you ordered!

 

THE BEST DESIGNS:

I believe the best, most creative, top notch designs and craftsmanship will always be from our wonderful country, America.  We have the best designs schools here, and I am proud to say I graduated from one of them….Rhode Island School of Design

 CUSTOMER SERVICE:

A MADE IN AMERICA company can give you THE BEST attention when ordering your products, especially for custom designs.  No one else can communicate with you and understand you better, than a company here in America.

SUPPORTING OUR COUNTRY:

And finally….. wouldn’t you prefer to support our country? Keep the jobs here.  By purchasing a product made in America, you are supporting an individual or family.  And we thank you for that!

FOREIGN PRODUCTS ON ETSY:

Etsy has MANY sellers  that are not producing their products in America.  Do not be fooled by low prices.  Do your homework, and make sure you know where your invitations or other items are being made before you buy them.

We hope this little bit of information helps you when you are doing your research for wedding invitations, or other products for your special day!

Sofia Invitations on Wedding 101 Greenville Blog

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.
