From letterpressed on handmade papers to fine engraving on hefty classic-colored cardstock to flat printing and thermography on whimsically designed cards and papers, we offer a broad range of outstanding clean, modern, and traditional designs sure to please even the most persnickety of tastes.

Our extensive collection includes Arzberger, Bella Figura, Designers Fine Press, Haute Papier, Page Stationery, Smock, Oblation Papers and several others, not to mention top quality in-house design!

Don't forget "day of" papers, like welcome notes, programs, cocktail napkins, escort cards, place cards, table numbers, menus, favor tags, signage for bar, guestbook, getaway car and more!

We can help you manage the calligraphy process, which can be overwhelming: from choosing a calligrapher to choosing a calligrapher's style; then reviewing your excel address list and advising you on proper etiquette AND making sure it is in the right format for the calligrapher; to reviewing the calligrapher's work and checking it for errors!

We always recommend hand lettering over "computer" calligraphy (using a computer font to print your guests' addresses), however sometimes budget doesn't always allow. So we offer "computer" calligraphy as a cost-effective alternative: there is a setup fee based on your quantity, and a per piece printing price.

"RPS was great to work with! Had a variety of lovely and unique options to choose from for wedding invitations, although they are a little on the pricier side. Well worth it if you have the budget though. Wonderful customer service too! Turnaround times on invitations were right on too- always kept me updated and always responded quickly if we had questions!"

"Rock Paper Scissors helped us create save the dates and invitations for our wedding. I am an avid letter writer and I love stationery so I was very excited about getting the chance to make unique invitations that would give our guests a feel for what our wedding would be like. I came in with a lot of ideas (probably too many) and a designer sat with me for over an hour to help me come up with something that I loved. They have a large selection and a beautiful space with lots of examples of invitations to help get you inspired. When it came time to do the invitations, the designers worked with me to help me incorporate custom artwork made by my brother. They even helped keep my ordering on schedule to make sure that everything would go out in a timely fashion. I was extremely satisfied with both the customer service and how the save the dates and invitations turned out! I would recommend them to anyone!"
Rock Paper Scissors replied:

" Emily & Mark - it was lovely working with you! I always love it when we can incorporate custom artwork provided by a bride (or brother of the bride in your case!) thanks for the glowing review, we really do appreciate it!! "

"They did a wonderful job with our wedding invitations. It was important to me to use a local vendor for our invitations. I could have potentially saved money using an online service but it wouldn't have been worth it. They were there guiding me through the entire process (etiquette etc)."
Rock Paper Scissors replied:

" Thanks Carissa and Ron, I'm so glad you were pleased with your invitations and the process! Thank you for the kind review. "

"Rock Paper Scissors created beautiful table cards, place cards, programs, and welcome cards for our June 2014 wedding and we could not have been happier with their service and high quality product. Heather was extremely professional and attentive, and very patient as we worked through multiple rounds of editing our program and other customized materials. Dani produced stunning original drawings for our table cards based on ideas we had given her and we were thrilled with how they came out. Their work was truly outstanding and really helped give our wedding a personalized touch."
Rock Paper Scissors replied:

" Awww, thanks for the glowing review, Kate and Andrew!! It was a pleasure to work with you both!! "
