In 2006, essentials incorporated custom wedding invitations into our business. We could not have imagined the way that the DIY movement would influence this decision. With the advent of the handmade, quality, aesthetic really taking root on etsy, pinterest, and other social networks and design blogs, we realized custom wedding invitations were having a resurgence. With in-store design and printing, we here at essentials are able to take a bride or groom through the beginning stages of wedding planning all the way to day-of preparation. Starting with save the dates, the invitation package, envelope addressing, we can work with you to create everything all the way to your wedding favors, menus, programs, escort cards and more. All of these items can be prepared, printed, and customized to your specifications.

We work with several companies including Crane & Co.Designer's Fine LetterpressLucky OnionWednesday Custom Design and more. We also do our own in house design and printing for more specific, customized projects.

If you are interested in learning more about our wedding invitations or customized event invitations, we ask that you call the store at 413-584-2327, or email to schedule an appointment to meet with our owner and designer, Colette Katsikas. Scheduling an appointment assures you that we here at essentials have specified a time just for you, to focus on your needs and interests as a customer. A consultation with Colette is of no cost to you, and will help you further understand what we offer as a custom printing provider.
