Custom Invitations

Designed by us. Handmade by you.


The Perfect Design, Just For You


We specialize in designs for handmade wedding invitation suites. If you’re crafty and love to DIY, we can create a design then send you a kit with everything you need to make stationery that sets the tone for your event. We’ll work with you from start to finish to make stationery that is truly unique and perfect for your wedding. If you take the DIY approach, you’ll create lasting memories of the process as well as an unforgettable finished product.

Your wedding is about you and your unique relationship, so your invitations should be too. You shouldn't have to settle for mass-produced invitations when you can have an invitation suite created just for you, with your personal aesthetic in mind. Your invitation or save-the-date gives your guests their first glimpse of your wedding. We will work with you to ensure that what they see sets the right mood and highlights your unique style



We'll start with a consultation to determine which package is right for you and talk about how you envision your wedding invitation suite. Not sure yet? That's okay too. Share that wedding inspiration board you created on Pinterest (before you were even engaged), pictures from magazines, photos of yourselves, your venue, your dress--whatever showcases your personal style and the tone you want to set for your wedding. 



Depending on which package you choose, we'll spend about 3-6 weeks creating your materials. As we get started with your design, we will check in with you to make sure we're headed in the right direction. We'll email you a preview of your invitation suite when it's complete. The faster we get information and feedback from you, the sooner we can complete your designs! 



Then the real fun begins: making your invitations. It is our pleasure to work with you to develop a truly unique invitation suite, and we would only enjoy our job more if we could see your delight when you receive the package with your materials.

Our Work


About Us

We are Carolyn and Dan Sharkey, and we want to make awesome wedding invitations for you. Dan is the owner of Dizzy Giant, a graphic design company that works with documentary filmmakers. Carolyn is a lady with years of teaching and customer service experience and an inordinate fondness for craft supplies.

With Dan's design background and Carolyn's love of handmade products, we knew we wanted to create and make our own truly unique wedding invitations when we got married. We had such a good time making our own, we did some for friends. When we ran out of people we knew who needed invitations, we decided it was time to start Noble Squid Workshop.

We want you to love your invitations and experience making them as much as we loved ours.
