Gus & Ruby Wedding Invitations
We had a truly fabulous experience with the custom invitation team at Gus and Ruby. Laura was very attentive throughout the whole process and is generally a joy to work with. She struck the perfect balance of offering professional expertise and getting us what we wanted. While it is a pricier venture than minted, Zola or the like, it is totally personalized and the quality difference shows both during the design process and in the final product. In fact, several of our guests framed their wedding invitations!!
Would HIGHLY recommend going this route and supporting a small business if you can swing it.Sent on 10/17/2019

Simply the best.
The paper products were one of the aspects of wedding planning I was most looking forward to working on - and whether or not you feel that way, I promise you that Gus & Ruby will blow you away with their friendliness, professionalism, level of service, and quality of their work. I seriously cannot say enough good things about them, and will always cherish their beautiful work as mementos of our wedding. I had several ideas about what I wanted for our save the dates, invitations, and other paper goods, and they went above and beyond bringing my ideas to life. For the pieces that I wasn’t so sure about, they were creative and thoughtful in creating pieces that would complement and enhance our day. The Gus and Ruby team are detail-oriented, fun to work with, and create gorgeous work. They are responsive to ideas and questions, are great at coming up with alternatives if something doesn’t work, and will work with you until everything is just as you want it to be. They want everything to be perfect for you...They even hand delivered our table numbers to my parents’ house the day before our wedding because the color wasn’t just right. Sam, Laura, and everyone on your team, thank you so much for all your hard work - Everything you created was truly a highlight of our engagement and wedding.Sent on 07/01/2019

Fantastic design & service!
As a self-professed paper geek (bride), it was important that we work with a great stationer for our wedding invitation. And, we couldn't have been happier with the beautiful wedding suite that Samantha at Gus & Ruby helped us design! Samantha was very patient with all of our questions, changes and, at times, in-decision about what we wanted the invitations to look like.Sent on 02/12/2019
We landed on a classic invitation and Samantha helped us personalize it with a custom envelope liner, and formatting the text with italics, capitalization, and more. We would have loved to do more custom work with G&R (budget restraints kept us from doing so), but Samantha made our suite feel custom just through the great advice and customer service she provided.
We can't wait to work with G&R again. Thank you Samantha & team!
Beautiful products and helpful staff!!
Of your looking for gorgeous invitations and wedding stationary, look no further! Not only do they have the best selection, they also make the experience of choosing your invitations a fun process! Oh and they have the cutest shop ever!!!!
Invitations are your guests' first impression of your wedding and the wonderful ladies at Gus and Ruby Letterpress are amazing at taking your wedding vision and creating a wedding invitation suite that reflects you and your fiance's personal style. Gus and Ruby's letterpress stationery is simply classic, timeless and beautiful. Not to mention Samantha (both of them!), Liz, Whitney & Laura are such a pleasure to work with. And Gus and Ruby - the two pups behind the name - help calm those wedding nerves with a friendly lick and endless love :) What's better than beautiful invitations, impeccable customer service and furry mascots?
