My Lady Dye is a small, full-service stationery studio that specializes in custom design of Fine Wedding Invitations and matching Day-Of Stationery.

Our design has a Fine Art aesthetic.  In almost all our work, you will notice fine watercolor, hand illustration, venue illustration, and unique envelope addressing (whether it is printed or done in our signature modern calligraphy styles).   We are very passionate about our work and love getting to know our clients.  Getting to know you is an important part of our Creative Process because our passion is to design meaningful stationery.  We take you on an artful journey, in which you will feel a personal connection to your wedding paper.  Our Creative Process is a step-by-step process that engages you in each phase of the design and we love sharing our work on our Instagram!  We are very active and interactive on this platform, in sharing stories and posts on a daily basis.

And everything is done in-house, in our home-based studio!  Design, watercolor, hand illustration, addressing, assembly, and digital printing.  Our stationery is designed with passion and handcrafted with love in Fairhope, Alabama.

We offer a variety of print methods including Digital, Letterpress, and Foil Printing.   And we offer a nice variety of paper options, including our favorite handmade papers!  Handmade paper is a great choice if you want your wedding stationery to have a high-end, luxurious, organic quality and feel.   We have many paper options and are here to guide you and propose the best options for your wedding stationery.

We use all forms of communication with our clients.  Social media (Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook), skype, email, phone, and “by appointment only” in-person meetings!  We offer a truly one-of-a-kind experience!  We hope you are inspired and intrigued!  Please follow our artful journey on Instagram!  We would love the opportunity to work with you in designing your beautiful wedding invitations and day-of stationery!
