INFO FOR INVITATIONS

Do you offer a catalog of products or custom products?
Custom Products
Do you handle design, printing, and assembly?
Assembly, Design, Printing
What specialty products do you provide?
Embossed, Engraving, Letterpress, Recycled Paper, Soy Based Inks
Describe the types of invitations that you offer:
My aesthetic is classic and elegant with a twist. I like my designs to be unique, meaning that I don't use clip art or stock images for my invitations- every artistic detail you see begins as a hand illustration or hand painting done by me. I also offer unique invitation materials like Lucite, metal, wood and luxurious silk boxes, silk folios and crystals.
 
 Unlike a traditional stationer where you order designs from a book, clients work one-on-one with me, the designer, to create something special. It is a fun experience to see the invitation come to life!
What is your average turnaround time, from initial contact to shipment?
Signature Collection: Our average turnaround time is 4-6 weeks. Rush service is available for an additional fee if our schedule allows. If after you've placed your order you want to see a personalized proof prior to production, please allow an extra week in the schedule.
 
 Custom Design: The average length of the custom design process is 6-12 weeks, depending on season. Once the design is finalized and sample approved turnaround time is 4 weeks (excluding silk orders). After our consultation we will provide you with an estimated time line. Silk orders require more lead time as each piece is handmade to order.
 
 If you would like to work with us, I encourage you to contact us early so we can hold your spot in our schedule. As a boutique invitation studio, we work with a limited amount of clients each year.
Are you able to meet clients in person to showcase your product?
We are happy to schedule in person consultations at our studio in historic Oldtown Salinas. Please note that we are open by appointment only.
 
 We also offer phone and email consultations. I would love to chat to see if we are the right fit for you and your event!
Is there a minimum order requirement?
Our signature collection semi-custom items do not have a minimum order amount, but minimum quantities apply. See our Signature Collection page on our website for details. For custom designs, we have a minimum order of $500.

Brenna Catalano Rhoades is the most TALENTED stationer we have ever met.

I feel that even implying she is simply a "stationer" limits her abilities. She is a designer, and true professional, with the eye and skill for this craft.

We had several meetings with Brenna, and she helped us narrow our choices of papers to use, she even asked us to share pictures of other aspects of the wedding, to tie all the color selections together. I had an idea of the artwork I wanted on my invitations, she drew them digitally, incorporating our color scheme and then providing me with the proof. (The best part: she gave us two proofs)

Her professional advice aided us on selecting the proper wording. We had a change in circumstances several days before printing, and we needed to add some additional information to all 200+ of our invites. Brenna, was extremely flexible in adding the information and saved us money by reformatting the invitation layouts slightly so we didn't have to purchase more paper.

When the time came for us to send out our invitations, we were absolutely in love with them. Many of our guests have reached out to us to express their delight and happiness that they derived from receiving the invites.

Brenna: Thank you for all your hard work and contribution in making the 1st impression for our wedding, such a lasting one.

We love you, Brenna!

Brenna custom designed my wedding invitations after I fell in love with one of her other designs. I wanted hydrangeas instead of orchids, so Brenna hand-painted a gorgeous watercolor hydrangea design. She is extremely talented and meticulous with her work, and pays very close attention to her client's ideas. We communicated mostly through email and sometimes over the phone, as I live in Massachusetts and her studio is in California. I really enjoyed the design process and I was so thrilled when my box of invitations arrived--the presentation alone was impressive. I sent the invitations to guests a couple weeks ago, and as soon as people started getting them I got many texts and messages saying they were the most beautiful invitations ever! I can't say enough about how happy I am to have chosen Brenna!

When I was searching wedding invitations multiple vendors referred me to Brenna Catalano Design Studio. I was looking for fantastic printing company that could handle all my wedding graphic needs. I have a very demanding job therefore I also needed someone I could connect with via email and not actually have to visit their location. Brenna was a perfect match. She started off with a phone consultation and gave us suggestions and recommendations on what products would best suit our needs. She quickly sent over layouts for us to view and within days our invitations were stamped, with envelopes preprinted with guest address’s, stuffed and mailed out by her staff…there was absolutely no work and no hassle on our part! She made it so simple plus the services were very affordable…I would definitely use her again for other events. BC Design Studio also did our place cards, thank you notes and a seating chart display which now is now a keep sake for us. She even made writing our thank you notes easy on us by addressing all the envelopes to the individual who gave us gifts! We received so many compliments on the stationary used and we have Brenna to thank for making our day so special. Your service and efficiency to deliver results in a timely manner are truly amazing!

Thank you, Dr. and Mrs. Mancuso

Brenna did an AMAZING job with all of our paper needs!!!

She is very creative and knows all of the etiquette when it comes to invitations/Thank you cards (and probably everything that has to do with weddings!)!

She responds to e-mails very quickly and is patient with her clients!

Her work is amazing! We had so many compliments on our invitations, most of which were "They are the prettiest invitations I have ever seen!"

She also created our place cards/menus and even signage! She will pretty much do anything that is in her ability!

We definitely would and DO recommend Brenna Catalano Designs to anyone that is in need of invitations/cards/signage!

Brenna was fantastic!! Let me begin with I live in Texas and she is in California, we did everything over the phone, email or mail. I was a little nervous about this, but Brenna quickly eased my nerves during our very first phone conversation. She was such a pleasure to work with and she was so helpful in the layout/design process. I gave her my vision and she turned it into reality...and better than I could have imagined. She got on my wedding website while we were on the phone and she sent me paper samples to ensure color/paper choice-no other stationer I interviewed did that. Her organization, attention to detail, prompt response and follow up put me a ease knowing she would take care of things ahead of schedule.

I loved my invitations so much I had Brenna do my weddin programs and some reception signs for our photo booth. She designed everything to match and I couldn't have been happier.

I will definitely use her again and I HIGHLY recommend her...you will be so glad you did!

We hired Brenna to do our invitations for our out of state wedding. Working with Brenna we felt comfortable every step of the way. She has a clear attention to detail and a gift on what she does. From the moment we hired her to the moment we received the invitations, each step of this process went smoothly. The end product is perfect and individuals who have seen it so far, are amazed. If you are getting married, Brenna is the individual who can make your wedding even more special. Look no further since your wedding will become a reality with Brenna and her creativity.

I was referred to Brenna Catalano Design Studio by another bride for my wedding paper items. She was amazing and affordable. At our initial meeting she brought lots of samples and spent a good amount of time trying to figure out what I liked and the style I wanted for my stationery. Initially I wanted letterpress but as we went over prices I decided to not go that route. Although Brenna's letterpress prices were better than other quotes I received, I needed multiple paper items printed for the wedding and needed to be cost-conscious.

We decided to print the save-the-dates first and discussed concepts and options. Brenna sent me a draft and we emailed back and forth editing design and content. She has a really good sense of etiquette and what the difference is between proper wording and casual wording. As soon as I approved a final draft, it went to print. The save-the-dates came out wonderful and we moved on to designing the invitations which followed the same process.

The invitations were definitely more elaborate and detailed. They came out AMAZING! Everyone told me how beautiful and classy they were. I know the invitations got everyone excited for the wedding and people knew it was going to be something special.

I also used Brenna for programs, seat cards, large seating chart, table numbers, buffet menu, thank you cards and digital calligraphy. All turned out terrific. With each item she made sure that I got what I had envisioned.

I was not a total bridezilla but I was definitely slightly neurotic and a little high maintenance. Brenna was always patient and committed to making sure I was happy with the final product. Everything she did was timely and she was always very responsive whenever I contacted her. Budget was of course a concern- she respected that and gave me great quality and value. I plan on having Brenna do personal stationary for me and would not hesitate to refer someone to her in the future.

Brenna was highly recommended to us by our wedding coordinator. When we first met with her and reviewed samples of her incredible work, we did not hesitate to hire her services for our wedding stationary. Brenna was a true pleasure to work with, easy to deal with and incredibly creative! Further, she was always open to our ideas, made a number of fantastic suggestions, and never rushed us to make a final decision. We told her what we were looking for, and she managed to build multiple designs that exceeded our every expectation, within our budget. When seeing the final product from Brenna, we were so happy and unbelievably pleased how beautiful her creations turned out for us. In the end, we hired Brenna to design and build all of our wedding invitations, our menu cards, ceremony programs and thank you cards. And, on a number of occasions she went way above and beyond when we needed her help with some tiny extras for our special day. We absolutely loved working with her; Brenna is so incredibly passionate about her work and it shows. In short, she exceeded our every expectation! We would highly recommend Brenna to anyone looking for thoughtful, unique, exquisitely designed stationary for a wedding or any other memorable occasion!

Brenna is Awesome! I had ordered a set of invitations off a website thinking it was going to be easy for me to do them. It turned out that is was a lot more work than I thought. I called Brenda, met with her and told her what I wanted.. She brought examples to the meeting which really helped and it was hard to decide because I liked them all. She was able to do everything I wanted ( included a picture) and got them back to me promptly. I don't know what else I would have done! Now I am looking to order my Thank You's. I recommend Brenna for any kind of invite, she does a wonderful job- very creative. By the way, I have recieved lots of comments :) Thank You

I could not be happier with the invitations and other wedding coordinates that we ordered from Brenna Catalano Design Studio. I ordered everything via phone and email, and Brenna delivered exactly what I had in mind. Everyone who received an invitation from us told us that it was the most beautiful invitation that they had ever seen!
Brenna was completely professional, so easy to work with and the end result was absolutely spectacular. In ordering the wedding stationery, I had a lot of requests of Brenna and she had a solution to everything I threw at her.
The proofs that she emailed gave me a great idea of what I was ordering ahead of time, and Brenna was very responsive to all my needs and requests. She is creative in her designs, and she executes them with perfection! All in all, a wonderful experience, I love my wedding invites and would not hesitate to recommend Brenna's design studio to anyone who needs stationery of any kind!

We hired Brenna to do our invitations after falling in love with her custom cherry blossom invitations online. Although our wedding was all the way across the country, Brenna was constantly available by phone or email to help me with any questions I had and her attention to detail is astounding. Everyone complimented on her beautiful work, and Brenna also made custom magnets for my wedding favors that matched the invitations that were an absolute hit! I couldn't recommend anyone higher than Brenna Catalano Design Studio!

She was always available and very eager to work with me to make sure the designs were exactly what I wanted - she really let me customize the design and colors. Brenna provided ceremony programs, wine labels and escort cards for me, and I wish I had found her soon enough to do my invitations as well! All the items were perfectly coordinated and really pulled together the theme and color scheme of my wedding. The products were extremely professionally done and gorgeous. I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend her!

Brenna was extremely helpful in choosing our wedding invitations, programs and thank you cards. We waited to the last minute to pick out our stationary, but Brenna was able to pull it off and did a great job. We received so many compliments on our stationary from our guests!

"First impressions are lasting impressions" and that definitely was the case for my elegant wedding invitations Brenna Catalano Design Studio's created for my November 2010 wedding.

I also had menu cards and thank you notes that were equally as elegant.

I received so many compliments on how beautiful my invitations were that they just knew how beautiful they wedding would be to follow...just because of the invitation!

Would highly recommend !

Brenna was amazing!!! I live in Texas and Brenna's studio is in California, so there was definately some distance between us; but I felt like her studio was down the street from me. That is one of the main reasons we chose Brenna to do our invitations: she ALWAYS responded immediately to all my emails and phone calls. Brenna is unbelievably talented and she is a genious when it comes invitations. We loved working with her so much that we also used her for our rehearsal dinner invitations, table number cards, and rehearsal dinner menus. It was a pleasure working with Brenna and I cannot wait to use her again!!! We have found our "invitation specialist" for life!

I had such a wonderful experience working with Brenna. Her thoughtfulness, creativity and attention to detail gave me so much peace of mind during a very busy time. I knew that was one area I wouldn't have to worry about. She did also did the menu cards, place cards and table assignments for our wedding. Everything was so beautiful and even better than I could have ever hoped for. She helped me expand on ideas I already had and also showed me examples of things she'd done in the past. Not only was Brenna thoughtful and kind but she was also always punctual and professional. I HIGHLY recommend her services.

Brenna is simply amazing! Brenna is an amazing person who made the invitation process so easy. She makes sure to provide what she promises and does so on time. She is just so amazing and made invitations more amazing than I ever could have imagined. We challenged Brenna a bit because we had two ideas that we liked but were very different and Brenna was able to take our ideas and make us re perfect invitation for us. Many of our guests told us that we had the most beautiful invitations that they had ever seen, one guest said she felt bad putting it on her fridge so she framed it. Brenna and our amazing invitation set the stage for our wedding, the most amazing day of our lives( any brides who want a tip: invitations are the first impression that your guests will get about wedding so its important that they are amazing!!!!) I would 100% without a doubt recommend Brenna to anyone who wants amazing, beautiful, elegant invitations!!!!

I LOVE BRENNA!! She was one of my favorite vendors - professional, easy to work with, and the invites were BEAUTIFUL!

I was looking for invites that were exceptional, and I was really bummed to find the same wedding pocket invites in all the catalogues and websites. I came across Brenna's business card from the bridal fair and I emailed her. She quickly responded and was able to set up an appointment right away. When she showed me her work I was really impressed! My husband and I liked her, she was very amiable so we signed a contract with her. A few days later she emailed me the invitation layouts. She listened to our request and she customized the invites exactly the way we wanted it. It was really nice of her to drop off the wedding invites at my work. When I saw the invites I was so speechless. They were just how I wanted them but so much better. My guests at the wedding had wonderful comments about them, and someone said it was the "prettiest and classiest invites" she's ever seen. My husband and I were impressed with Brenna and her work.

Working with Brenna was such an amazing experience!! My fiancé and I waited a little late to purchase our invitations. We are from Houston and looked locally for the perfect invite; however, all the invitations seemed so plain and unoriginal. I went home and performed a Google search and came across Brenna's website. The invitations were so beautiful online and are absolutely breathtaking in person! The timeframe was tight, but she worked with us to create exactly what we wanted. Once our guests started to receive the invites, we got calls and e-mails from so many of them commenting on how original and gorgeous our invitations were. Brenna was so professional and extremely responsive. She turned a stressful situation for my fiancé and me into an enjoyable, memorable experience. Our wedding invitations were so beautiful, that we went back to Brenna last minute for our escort cards! Your invitation is the first impression your guests have about your wedding and without a doubt; Brenna helped us create the wedding of our dreams!

If you want an elegant, amazing, beautiful and thought out wedding invitation then you must use Brenna! My husband and I first met Brenna when we were at a Bridal Fair in San Jose. We wanted an invitation to start off of what we wanted the Guest to expect of our wedding. We had our wedding at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. A truely elegant event that deserved the most amazing invitation. When we saw her booth at the fair, we knew right then and there this was it. She has beautiful ideas. Our wedding colors were black, white and red. We got the Thai silk portfolio invitations which were wrapped with a red ribbon with a poker chip (pre-favor) in the middle of the ribbon. We had the most amazing feedback from all of our friends and family that received the invitation. They knew from that invitation that we were really going to put on a show! We met with Brenna on several occasions to go over every last intricate detail of the invitation. They were truely "over-the-top" invitations. She is very talented! I would and have recommened her to all of my friends and family!

I really loved how Brenna did exactly what we had asked on our wedding invitations! All of our family and friends loved what colors we chose and what Brenna put together! I love the fact that we didn't have to do anything! Brenna did it all! I loved how everything was via email, it's really hard for brides to have time and Brenna gave us all the time we needed! I will definitely have her make future invitations.Thank you Brenna!

One of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding was choosing Brenna to design our invitations, table numbers, ceremony fans, menus, and seating chart. She is the most creative woman I have ever met, and she genuinely tries to pinpoint exactly what you want in her designs. We received numerous compliments about Brenna's amazing work, and we could not have asked for anything more. Thank you, Brenna, for making what we expected to be a fabulous planning experience even more perfect."

Brenna has been amazing to work with. I had a very specific invitation in mind that I was designing with a friend of mine - Brenna was a huge help in working with the layout and advising on some unique personal touches to add. She went above and beyond to make the invitations look exactly how I wanted them and was super accessible and responsive. Her work exceeded my expectations. Thank you Brenna!

Brenna was a God send for us! Our invitations were absolutely beautiful! From the begging she had so many options with colors, textures, scripts and ideas! Honestly I still get tons of compliments about the invitations! Brenna was also so helpful towards the wedding date when we needed help arranging a seating chart and last minute wedding programs! Brenna saved us, and helped our wedding reception be organized and look gorgeous at the same time. I cannot recommend Brenna enough! Amazing! Thank you so much again for your talent!

There are no words for how amazing Brenna is. The invitations she personally designed for us were more then we could possible have asked for. We recieved hundreds of calls asking who did our invitations. On top of addressing and mailing the ALL of our invitations, Brenna designed and coordinated the place cards, table numbers and ceremony programs so everything worked together. She then shipped them to our destination wedding. Everything was extremely affordable. People commented that we must have spent tens of thousands of dollars on our prints when in fact it was only a quarter that.

Brenna was so easy to reach and she responded very quickly to all my concerns She was able to taje my ideas and made them reality. What makes a wedding stand out is the details and Brenna's work made an impact on so many of our guests through her attention to details.

Thank you SO much Brenna!!!!

Brenna is AWESOME to work with. She is amazingly responsive and worked with us to create the look and feel we wanted for our wedding stationary. In addition to beautiful wedding invitations, Brenna created place cards, menus, ceremony programs, shower invitations, thank you notes, and welcome letters. All were professionally created, unique, and reasonably priced. Brenna is so flexible, and makes things really easy for a busy bride. We have recommended Brenna to many of our close friends and have continued to turn to Brenna ourselves to get that special personal touch (including announcing the birth our daughter). She's the best!

Brenna was able to create exactly what I asked her for, working perfectly with my colors and ideas. We had a billingual invitation and I was very specific on the format and the colors. They were not the least expensive but, we were very happy with the results and got lots of positive feed back from our guests on them. Because we lived far from her, she made the effort to arrange to deliver the invitations to us as conviniently as possible. Overall, we had a great experience with her work. Thanks Brenna! We shall contact you for our future celebrations...a baby shower perhaps! :)
