ABOUT SABLE & GRAY
Hi! We're so happy you're here.
Since starting Sable & Gray in 2014, our mission has been to create a stress-free environment for our brides to work one-on-one with a designer to design their dream wedding invitations.
We specialize in creating one-of-a-kind designs that not only highlight the aesthetic of your wedding day, but also capture your unique love story. We love to incorporate hand-painted fine artwork and hand-lettered details into our designs so there is no question that your suite was designed specifically for you.
We can’t wait to get to know you and hear more about what you’re dreaming up! We would be so thrilled to be a small part of your big day.
Looking for the perfect wedding invitations?
Having worked in the wedding industry as a designer, and having recently gotten married herself, Kristin understands the importance of the wedding invitation as a first impression of your wedding, and how it will set the tone for the whole event. With this in mind, we hope to create the perfect invitation for your big day.
We offer a wide variety of printing styles including letterpress, laser-cutting, thermography, foil stamping, and digital printing and we also offer beautiful extras such as hand-painted watercolor maps, velvet ribbon bindings, custom-designed wedding crests, and calligraphy guest addressing. Our custom designs have been featured in several prestigious publications including the Style Me Pretty, Magnolia Rouge, and Oh So Beautiful Paper.

"I always thought I wanted to be an Architect. I loved the idea of spending my days sketching and watercoloring houses from my imagination, and building models of someone's dream home out of little bits of wood. After studying my toosh off and graduating cum laude with a Bachelor of Architecture, I stepped off of campus and into the real world only to find that, during my time in school, architecture had become a computer-driven career. Where had the watercolors gone!?? Where were my detailed hand-made models!?? I realized that, unless I wanted to spend my days staring at a computer screen, it was time to reevaluate my career path and find something that I could really be artistic with; something that I loved.
I found that love in stationery. I am now able to spend my time doing the things that bring me joy... sketching, watercoloring, letterpressing, and calligraphy-ing. (I may have just made that word up) And these things not only bring me joy, they also bring joy to every person who receives them. I mean, what is better than opening the mailbox to see your name written in script across a colorful envelope? That's SO much better than getting another email in your inbox or a "like" on facebook.
So I may not be the architect that I always thought I'd be, but that doesn't mean I'm not doing what I love. Creating custom stationery makes me so very happy, and I hope to share that happiness with every person who opens their mailbox to see a beautiful, hand-made card or invitation from Sable & Gray."
