Modern. Graceful. Whimsical. Fierce. Festive. Full of Life. What do you want your stationery to say about you, your family, your event, and your vision of the world?
I was raised by a mom who could turn an old pillowcase into a curtain and an old curtain into a prom dress. From her I learned that possibility is everywhere and nothing should be wasted. As a designer, I dream in colors and fonts. My favorite way to communicate has almost nothing to do with words. This makes every day, every project, every client the most exciting gift and the best kind of challenge.
In 2002, I was working as an in-house graphic designer for a gourmet food company in Maine when my now-husband proposed. We wanted our wedding invitation to set the tone for the intimate summer wedding we’d planned in my hometown. Think mason jars, wildflowers, and a big white tent on acres of fresh cut grass at my sister’s house. No fuss, just family friends and simple summer joys. When I couldn’t find what I wanted, I decided to make the invitations myself. I sat up every night at my kitchen table assembling each and every one.
From this, Annie Taylor Design was born in 2005 as a boutique design company specializing in everything from wedding invitations to corporate branding projects. Although I’m a formally trained graphic designer, I rely most often on everyday things to inspire me: a swatch of fabric, an antique lamp, the specific yellow of a sunrise in coastal Maine or the red of a passerby’s umbrella on a rainy day in London.
My three boys are my biggest inspiration, of course. They certainly have gifted me with many birthday parties and milestone celebrations to plan.
An invitation should take you somewhere. The designs I create for my family are infused with the places and things I love and I love nothing more than to help other people articulate their personal style and vision through the art of design. The best part of this work is collaboration with the client. You decide where you want to go and I bring your vision to you…on paper.
That’s why I call it paperwork. It’s a craft. It’s a passion. It’s an expression of where you want to go. It’s my privilege to help take you there.

I ordered custom wedding invitations from Annie and absolutely love the way they turned out. Annie was wonderful to work with, very responsive and came up with creative ways to make the invites unique for our wedding. When I got the invites I was even more impressed - they look beautiful! I have coworkers who are getting married that have asked for Annie's information after seeing my invites and I have been more than happy to pass her name along.Sent on 04/11/2014

Annie from Annie Taylor Design is amazing! She's so easy to work with! You tell her what you're looking for, and what your wedding is going to be like, and she makes your invitations to fit just that! She has a very creative eye. I had a vision, but was unable to put it on paper, and Annie created exactly what I wanted! I highly recommend her! We used her for Save the Dates and Wedding invitations, but she also does baby announcements, shower invitations, party invites, etc. You name it she does it! And, I love how user friendly her website is! Check her out!Sent on 04/10/2014

I can't say enough good things about Annie Taylor Designs! Annie has an amazing talent for reading people and creating unique and beautiful invitations.Sent on 04/22/2014
After spending ages online looking at wedding invitation designs, I still hadn't found anything that really captured what I was looking for. When I decided to bite the bullet and pay a bit more for custom designed invitations, I contacted Annie. We exchanged a few emails and then Annie designed a series options for me to look at. Right away, she created an invitation that was EXACTLY what I was looking for! I was so thrilled, and could have never done it on my own or found something like it online. She worked with me on all the small details until we both felt it was absolutely perfect. She also worked endlessly on additional stationary items (e.g. escort cards, table markers, etc) and I couldn't be happier with the end result. I am certain I will work with Annie again on future paper needs and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
