About Us

Studio R

We create your personal style through all things paper. A Studio R invitation is a unique piece of art created specifically for each client. Your custom design begins with a hint of inspiration and becomes the root of a lasting impression – a well crafted design – a one-of-a-kind invitation that leaves people talking.

Our design studio is located in the heart of historic Charleston where we are surrounded by southern charm and old-fashioned hospitality. We cherish a hand written note delivered by our favorite postman Lonnie, browsing photography blogs for snippets of last weekend’s weddings and catching up with our neighbors.

Studio R began in 2004 when Rachael, a designer from New York, moved to the south to fulfill her life long goal of living by the beach. Our team loves what we do; come visit us and get inspired!

How it all Works

Please set an appointment to chat with one of the designers, either in person or on the phone. From our conversation, we will be able to ascertain the specifics of your event and walk you through the process of creating your custom design.

We love to work on events from start to finish. Many of our clients come to us initially for save the dates and complete their entire suite of stationery including additional pieces such as invitations, thank you notes, welcome packets, ceremony programs, place cards, menus, napkins, etc.  Anything you dream up we can create!

Pricing varies based on printing technique, papers, ink colors and quantity. Each job is priced individually and a 50% deposit is due to begin the proofing process.  We would like you to meet with us early in your planning phase to allow ample time for creativity and production.  Once your design is approved, the files are sent to press and our assembly team will undertake any finish work (i.e. lining envelopes, setting grommets, mounting invitations on pocket folders, tying ribbons). The complete process takes approximately 6 weeks from consultation to completion.


The designs featured on this site are just a sampling of what Studio R can create. Let us come up with something perfect for your event.  Your creativity is always welcome!
