Julie Travelino, Designer & Owner
Her husband, children, 3 fur babies
AND warm cups of coffee,
Running, traveling and do-it- yourself-ing
Vintage invitations tied up with strings…
These are a few of Julie’s favorite things.
Julie has always loved design and aesthetics. If something could be made more beautiful or imaginative, she would do it. After the birth of her daughter in 2008, Julie quit her job in HR and set out to turn her passion for designing and creating invitations for friends and family into a full-time career. In 2009 she and a friend started a successful custom invitation studio, and in 2012 Julie opened her own studio, Too Chic & Little Shab.
The studio name describes the pieces she offers, ranging from chic, luxury, and upscale invitations to vintage and rustic invitations, but it is also symbolic and personal. Her daughter, GiGi, was born as the idea of designing invitations professionally took place; she is the other little chick of the ‘Too Chic’—two chicks. Her son, Anthony, born shortly before she launched Too Chic & Little Shab, is the ‘little shab.’
Julie is involved in every step of the invitation creation process at Too Chic & Little Shab, from design to printing to assembly. She has self-taught design programs, designs much of her own artwork, and enjoys making invitations unique for clients. Each invitation is crafted with care and creativity to realize client visions. Julie loves what she does and is committed to helping you create the perfect, personalized first impression for your event!

Julie was AMAZING to work with, and the custom invitations turned out better than I imagined! I was constantly in contact with Julie with a dozen different emails, changing details, torn between fonts, multiple color changes and endless questions; and she ALWAYS answered me promptly and answered my concerns in detail. She's very helpful and creative if you're a little lost with design. I custom ordered my wedding invitations to match my favorite video game, Dragon Age, using a symbol from the game and she replicated it perfectly!Sent on 05/16/2018
The invitation paper is of very nice quality, sturdy card stock and the burgundy color is gorgeous with the gold font. She did a great job at making my invitations look medieval without over doing it or making it look tacky. I have absolutely no complaints!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
