The name,Athena Street Creative

In 2013, during a trip to Greece with my Mom, I began to daydream about owning my own business. I knew I wanted a career that would give me the ability to control my own schedule, work directly with couples, and explore my creativity on a daily basis. We spent our days roaming Athens’ streets (you see where this is going?), eating wonderful food, talking and shopping with the locals, and learning about the city’s history and patron goddess, Athena. 

Athena encompasses all the characteristics of a true girl boss. She was known for being wise, strategic, strong, and skilled in the creative arts. Her symbol is an owl, and as a memento, we bought miniature, twin, turquoise and brass owls. The owl, I named “Athena”, is always on my desk as a constant reminder to keep reaching my goals, to live my best life, and to provide the greatest experience possible to my clients. When I officially started this business and was thinking about a name, I remembered the inspiration and beauty of Athens, and chose to name my custom wedding stationery business Athena Street Creative.

Kaitlin with Athena Street Creative has made the invitation design process so incredibly fun and stress-free! She was recommended to us by our wedding planner, and we chose to go with her for our wedding invitations after our first meeting, where it was very clear how dedicated and passionate she is about making a personalized and meaningful stationery set for each couple she meets. She has been incredibly organized and prompt with communication throughout the entire process, and has been more than flexible with any modifications that we requested. After several months of design and thought, I know that they fit our vision perfectly thanks to her! I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for classy, high quality custom wedding stationery! - LYNDSEY & DREW

Athena Street Creative went above and beyond on our save the dates and invitations for our wedding! We received a number of compliments on both. Kaitlin is so talented and easy to work with. The beauty of working with her is she listens and genuinely wants her customers to have the best experience possible. She was able to create our dream from a few bullet point descriptions of what we were envisioning. She can make anyone's dream product come to reality. That is why we chose a custom invitation designer rather than doing it ourselves online. We put total trust in Athena Street Creative and she took our stress away. She went above and beyond our expectations. We highly recommend using Athena Street Creative for any design needs! - KATE & JUSTIN

Working with Kaitlin was such an amazing experience! From the very first meeting, she was so attentive to detail and determined to figure out exactly what I wanted for my wedding invitations. She was able to work a custom watercolor monogram into several different design options so that we could choose our favorite, and was happy to make modifications to font, text size, wording, etc. The finished product was high quality, and I am still receiving compliments on my invites a month after my wedding! I would definitely recommend choosing Athena Street Creative for any of your wedding paper needs. - AMANDA & TREVOR

We absolutely loved working with Kaitlin for our wedding stationery. She designed our save-the-dates, invitations, programs, bar/table signs, menus and table numbers. Her attention to detail made us feel so special, and we had a truly customized assortment. At the beginning of each stage, she presented us with several design options that she had developed, which made the process so easy for us. Kaitlin is so sweet and creative, and I could not recommend her enough!!

When I started looking into to invites, I was very overwhelmed. I liked bits and pieces of designs I found online, but couldn't find a complete invite suite. I decided to meet with Kaitlin and right away I was impressed. To our meeting she brought a well laid out book of her previous work as well as envelope sample colors. I loved this because this gave me some ideas to help me create my own unique design. Once booked, she created multiple options based on the design/vision we spoke about. She was very open to multiple modifications/edits to make sure the design fit exactly what I was looking for. The finished invite suite exceeded my expectations, matching my vision and the overall wedding theme. I highly recommend Athena Street Creative to ensure the highest quality! - CARLISHA & RYAN

Design Process & Investment

All proposals are custom & tailored to your exact needs.

1. LET’S MEET
Coffee, cupcakes, or a cocktail? We'll meet in person, or on the phone if you’re not local, for our initial consultation. During the meeting, we'll discuss the details of your wedding, look at my portfolio and paper samples, and see if we would be the perfect fit for working together on your wedding stationery.

2. PROPOSAL & CONTRACT
Within two business days of our meeting, I’ll create your custom proposal! Once you have approved it, and are ready to book, I’ll send the contract over, and a 50% initial payment will be due. We'll also discuss the timeline at this time for design drafts and final delivery to you.

3. TIME TO DESIGN
Generally, in 3-4 weeks time (or sooner for save the dates), the initial drafts will be ready to view. You’ll receive three unique design options, and you can choose the one you like most, or mix and match any elements from all three. We'll revise the design together until everything is perfect.

4. PRINTING, ASSEMBLY & MAILING
After you give final approval, and the remaining balance is paid, your stationery will go to print. For digital printing this takes 5-7 days, and for upgraded printing options 2-4 weeks. I always offer complimentary assembly, which includes sealing and stamping of your envelopes.

save the date minimum - $175
wedding invitation suite minimum - $800
