I LOVE shopping local, and if there’s something that I’m old fashioned about it it’s sending invitations for events. Sure, Facebook event invites are easy, but I love sending something in the mail that’s celebrating something special. In fact, I actually keep all my friend’s wedding invitations, birth announcements, etc because I’m a sentimental person.
New Jersey resident and entrepreneur Jackie Asta has been making custom invitations with her business RSVP Custom Creations since 2007. She has been featured in the Huffington Post, Wedding Wire, and Under 30 CEO.
She started her business when researching 1st birthday invitations for her daughter. After receiving her invitations in the mail, her immediate thought was “I can do this…and better”. That gave her the push to start her own business.
She started out designing children’s birthday invitations and listing them on on eBay. After receiving repeat business, she went on to create designs for bridal showers, baby showers and baptisms.
After creating a bridal shower invitation for a client she was asked to design her wedding invitation samples.
That led her into the wedding invitation design business. RSVP Custom Creations offers all kinds of stationery for clients’ events from the invitation, to thank you cards, favor tags, menu cards, escort cards, etc.
Asta feels what makes her business unique is the custom designing she does for her clients. “I do have standard designs that are listed on my website, but I love meeting or speaking with the client and listening to their vision and bringing it to life.”
For clients purchasing a more formal invitation set (which can include response card, reception card, direction card, etc) RSVP Custom Creations does it all – invitation sets come fully assembled, response card stamped, guest addresses are printed, and envelopes are stuffed. All at no additional charge to the client!
In addition to her wedding invitations, one of Asta’s more popular items are her Baby Shower invitations. Her invitations come in unique shapes, including a onesie!
If you’re looking for celebrate something special soon, why purchase from a chain or random online retailer when you can purchase beautiful, personal invitations from a local New Jersey business!
