    Beautiful and affordable

    If you are looking for personalized stationary (and possibly a picture of the stationary to keep as a wall-hanging) this is the perfect company. Beautiful watercolor stationary and they work with exactly your vision.

    Dream Vendor!

    I could not be more thankful that I stumbled upon Josie/Ivory Isle on Instagram. If you have the chance to work with her - do it! I may be biased, but our invitation suite is genuinely the most beautiful suite I have ever seen! Her artwork is incredible and attention to detail is amazing. She was quick to get revisions back to us and offered advice and her opinion when I was unsure. We are so excited for our guests to get their invites and cannot wait to work with Josie for our day of stationery!

    Ivory Isle Designs's reply:

    Darcy - you are so sweet! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts on working with me. You just made my day! I loved working with you, and loved the suite we created together (how could you not love Tito!) Looking forward to the day-of stationery next! :)

    Beauty brought to life

    Working with Josie on our wedding invitations truly brought to life our dream wedding. We chose to have her paint a scene from our venue, which she so graciously helped us decide on. The piece is truly beautiful and captured the romance and beauty that exists both at the farm venue and now on paper. Josie was amazing to work with from start to finish. When what I had originally ordered arrived and didn't exactly look like what I had pictured she worked quickly and kindly to create exactly what I had envisioned. I truly could not imagine a more beautiful piece of artwork to get my wedding rolling. We will treasure the painting of the Stone Barn for years to come.

    Thank you so much, Laila! It means so much to me that you took the time to share your thoughts. Working with you was truly my pleasure! :)
