Charlotte Wedding Invitations August and White ht.jpg

The Design Guide



I have spent years finding the perfect materials for my stationery, and I source papers from all over the world. Paper is truly my passion, and I am proud of the high quality materials that I offer. Currently, our standard paper is Soft White (the large card in the photo), and I also offer Stone and Ivory. I am working on adding a few other colors to the collection soon!


I also offer 3 different edging options as well - square corners (standard), round, and hand-torn edging. All of these options are available on all papers.*

* Due to thickness, the 236 lb. letterpress/foil paper cannot be hand-torn.



Ink Colors

Below you will see a wide variety of ink colors for digital, letterpress, and foil. Coloring will vary from monitor to print, so it is best to order a sample so you can receive a color chart in person. Custom digital and letterpress ink colors can also be accommodated for no additional charge.


Envelope Options

To coordinate with the minimalist and sophisticated designs I offer, I have envelope options below for you to choose from. Soft White come standard with every order, or you can choose a color upgrade from the other options below.

envelope liners

I offer various envelope liners (either pattern or solid) to coordinate with your invitations! Pattern liners will be printed in a coordinating color that matches your stationery.


Belly bands, vellum & twine

August + White also offers additional embellishments to coordinate with your stationery! These options are a wonderful way to hold all of your cards together, and add that special touch.

Belly Bands: Customized with your names, and date if you would like!

Twine: Our natural hemp twine is thin, so it is perfect to keep your cards together and add a rustic touch.

Vellum: Our vellum paper can either be large belly band style, or a vellum overlay that goes over top of the invitation. Note that vellum is delicate, so you will be able to see through the paper.


custom maps

To coordinate with your design, I also offer simple custom map drawings, which are perfect for a destination wedding! Pricing begins at $100 for 3 streets & locations, and each street/location is $25.
