About Ephemera

So nice to meet you!

Since 2007, we have been working, playing, and making new friends in our beloved shop nestled in Des Moines’ Historic East Village.

Specializing in custom invitations, announcements and stationery, designed and printed in-house, we also offer a collection of gifts, paper goods, and “happiness-makers” chosen to delight and inspire.

Over time, we’ve come to believe in the core principals of fun over fuss, the power of words on paper, pixie stix, peonies,
and that wedding planning should never make you cry.

We are happy to offer:

• invitation design (weddings & otherwise!)
• personalized stationery
• custom address stamps
• digital envelope addressing & calligraphy
• printing services
• d.i.y. paper and supplies

Get in touch! We are excited to make something great with you!

    So much talent in one little shop!

    We worked with Karen for all the print needs of the wedding - invites, programs, menus, signage. She listened to what we were wanting and was able to capture exactly what my son and daughter-in-law were looking for. Everything was done on time and all were beautiful. She gave me a website to order custom napkins from because they were less expensive. I actually miss stopping in the store on a regular basis to talk to Karen! I can’t say enough good things about their work.

    The ladies of Ephemera were wonderful! I wasn't sure what I wanted for an invitation, but I knew for sure what I didn't want. After talking with the ladies and looking through some designs, they suggested we design our own, unique invitation. With their skills, it turned out wonderful! They sent us home with samples that day. I couldn't have been happier with the look and quality of our invitations.
    They also designed a simple and beautiful wedding program at a good price.
    I was beyond happy with their outstanding work!!

    We worked with Karen from Ephemera and she did an amazing job. We chose a style that they had displayed on their wall and were able to tweak it to our style. Karen also listened to each of our concerns and supplied great feedback and ideas. We are very pleased and look forward to working with her again.
