Welcome to Cardinal and Straw


Classic Designs

Classic and elegant designs, exquisite paper and multiple printing methods combine to create your perfect wedding invitation suite.  

Wedding Invitations

Our wedding invitation suites are designed and edited personally for you.  We believe  personal contact and attention to detail are the best way to create your perfect wedding invitations.  You can modify any of our existing designs or work with us to create a truly unique suite.  And when your design is perfect we will print it using one (or more) of our printing methods –  handcrafted antique letterpress, classic raised printing (thermography) or vibrant flat printing

From save the dates to programs, menu cards and seating charts, Cardinal and Straw can help you with all of your wedding stationery.


Letterpress Printing

We lovingly print your items by hand on one of our antique Chandler & Price letterpresses. Our luxurious cotton paper and the crisp deep impression of the letterpress creates a stunning printed piece that won't soon be forgotten.

Thermography and Traditional
Offset Printing

Our thermography printing creates a beautiful raised impression.  Thermography printing is a great option to use with metallic inks as the process brings out the shine. Our traditional offset printing is a traditional and elegant print method.

Digital Printing

Our full color digital presses are lightning fast, affordable and designed to wow. Use watercolor designs as a background for one of our other printing methods or by itself to create a beautiful design.
