This Paper Ship is an illustration, design, and photography studio in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina, created by husband-and-wife team Joel and Ashley Selby. Having competed against each other to get BFAs in graphic design at Shepherd University, they eventually discovered they worked best as a team, and launched This Paper Ship in 2009 as a small Etsy shop. Now they work with clients locally and internationally with a wide variety of assignments, from custom hand-crafted wedding invitations, to identity design for a line of artisan chocolate bars, to illustration for a new hip iPhone app. They pride themselves on versatility and their promise to work with clients on any budget, big or small.

Their diverse work combines hand lettering, illustration, graphic design, photography, paper craft, and printmaking; their playful, colorful, and sophisticated work is influenced by Mid-Century illustration, Victorian typography and printing, Swiss design, and photography that tells a story. They maintain a strong commitment to traditional drafting and printing materials while shaping the trends of the contemporary art world.

For weddings they offer a wide variety of custom hand-drawn and hand-crafted items which are uniquely made for each client and printed in house on environmentally friendly papers. Some popular items include wedding invitations, programs, wedding keepsakes, save the dates, reception signage, banners, stamp design, etc.

They also offer wedding photography! Check out their photography portfolio on their website! You may receive discounts on multiple large orders (such as purchasing invitations and photography).

They have done work for DIY Bride, Wedding Jo Jo, Cincinnati Wedding Magazine, and have been featured on Wedding Style Guide Magazine (Australia), Green Wedding Shoes, Weddings Unveiled, and more!

They would love to work with you!

    I would give 6 stars if I could! Our save the dates and invitations are whimsical, unique, and exactly what we were envisioning. Not the same old stale, heavy stock, gaudy cursive design, but a welcoming vision of the event we planned. Our family and friends have been raving about the designs. We had no changes and would work with them again in a heartbeat. We also hired them to do a family tree for the event and we were thrilled with the results.

    Joel & Ashley are a true joy to work with and are extremely talented at what they do. They are dynamic duo and they are worth every penny! Highly recommend them for your wedding/engagement pictures (I used them for both of mine!) The pictures they produce just have so much personality and depth to them, they are definitely not your average "wedding" pictures. Anyone can take pictures, but not everyone can take the type of pictures they take. Their talent seeps through which each and every picture they produce and I can assure you... you will not be disappointed!

    Couldn't be happier with my invites! This Paper Ship executed the wording/design of our vow renewal invites flawlessly. I'm so excited to be giving this beautiful, completely custom, one-of-a-kind invite to our family and friends!
