The use of new and emerging technologies to create product from sustainable materials has been our greatest strength.

Graphic designer and entrepreneur, Nicole Wilson, announced today that she is now the sole managing owner of Invite Design after buying out her business partner of 11 years, Genevieve Kenney. As Invite Design commemorates a decade of providing invitations for life’s celebrations, Wilson plans to continue the evolution of the product while maintaining the company’s core mission of creating trend-setting, environmentally friendly invitations created with industry leading technology.

Launched in 2004, Invite Design has grown to be known for offering something unique in the invitation world. Its use of unusual materials, such as metal and wood, has set its product apart from the typical offering.

“The use of new and emerging technologies to create product from sustainable materials has been our greatest strength,” said Wilson. “We are planning the release of additional metal invitation designs in December, perfectly timed for engagement season. We will also continue to focus on making our invitations as environmentally friendly as possible, such as using sustainably harvested or reclaimed wood for our wood invitations, and finding ways to give the invitation use after the event for our metal invitations.”

“The past eleven years of working with Genevieve to build Invite Design have been rewarding,” said Wilson. “We overcame many challenges, as is often the case when using new technologies to create a product. We built our reputation based on great customer service and expertise in the field. I am ready to take what we have built and move it forward to share our invitations with new markets.”
