Charlotte Stationery Shop Guide

Now that you've learned the basics of printing techniques, you may be wondering where to go to have your graphic design dream made into reality. It's always best to go local when it comes to wedding invitations and save-the-dates. You'll have the advantage of being able to have a one-on-one conversation with the stationer and she will be able to cut corners, if necessary, to fit your budget. You'll also be able to view proofs in person and make sure the final product is precisely what you'd hoped for before you seal the envelopes and send them out. That said, we've compiled a guide to the Queen City's best stationery shops.
