You're in the right place if you're ready to tackle your wedding and show the world how beautiful your day is going to be. You need an invitation that's as incredible as the details you are planning. Something that's compelling and connects you guests to the emotions of the day. Like I said, you're in the right place.
Every wedding is unique and full of personality.
Your wedding invitations are the sneak peak into your wedding style and they can get your guests excited to see what else is coming. Your wedding design experience should be stress free and full of creative vendors that are ready to help you create seamless style from start to finish.
You want to show the world how amazing your day will be and it all starts with your timeless invitations.
You have some ideas, but , but after hours, days and weeks of searching you just can't find what you're looking for and you're tired and burned out. Stop the scroll, friend.
I'm here to help you. Invitations are not one size fits all. I'll guide you through the process - from colors to etiquette, save the dates through your thank you cards. I'm your expert that will take all of those ideas in your head, get them down on paper and make sure the details are all finished on time and rush free.
I'm here to customize everything for you. I'm dedicated to designing customized stationery for your wedding that is uniquely you.
Located in Quincy, Illinois, I am passionate about creating perfect designs for every event and have been since 2010. Thanks to my unique approach to collaborative invitation design, I'm proud to serve clients around the world. I'm here to help you with everything from choosing the right fonts, to etiquette and wording questions, to using paper as an accent to create beautiful reception tables.
Templates on those big box stores are so hard. They're confusing to navigate, you can't change anything and you always seem to have 5 additional charges at the end that you weren't expecting.
I know how busy you are between work or school, a social life and planning a wedding. You don't have any more time to scroll on Pinterest or invitation websites anymore, you just need these to be perfect, and trust that the printer isn't going to screw it up right? That's why I offer printed proofs of nearly every design before we go to print - I want to make sure you LOVE what you're sending out.
I have hundreds of color options, samples you can test out in the finest cardstock options, unlimited revisions, custom printing upgrades, pockets, envelopes, wax seals - anything you can dream up!
Everything from easy to order invitations to a full custom experience to wedding day paper, personal stationery and more.
Joyful and uniquely you paper products for every occasion.
I'll be there for youuuuuuu.
Hey friend, I'm Laura! That's LAura MAys - aka LAMAworks.
I'm the designer, printer, stylist, sometimes photographer, mom, wife and Friends fanatic behind the iblw brand.
I fell in love with the paper industry after my own wedding. I loved all of the crafty, DIY elements and my fingers just needed to keep moving. I've always been a maker, a dreamer, a girl who walks into a craft store and has visions of how she's going to piece elements together into the perfect project.
What started as a side gig in 2008 to keep my love for making things going has turned into a beautiful business that I run full time along side my husband and five kids.
I love finding inspiration, closing my eyes to see what I can dream up, and then finding those unique elements to pull a wedding suite together. If you can dream it, we can make it.
- I'm a classic introvert that loves quiet time, a good book and coffee.
- I'm obsessed with my Nespresso.
- My favorite color is blue.
- I love classic styles, but with a quirky twist to them.
- I have a son with Down syndrome and enjoy working with our schools to on inclusive Catholic education and disability advocacy.
- I have a MS in Biomedical Engineering of all things (click here if you want a blast into my past work)
