About By invitation

By Invitation is a custom stationery boutique and gift store located in Columbus, Georgia.
We hope to bring charm to your home and delight to the mailboxes of your family and friends.

We produce the paper that is the background of life's biggest milestones, and the possibilities are endless. We hope the Save the Dates for your wedding lead us to the birth announcements of your children; their graduation announcements  to the invitations to their own weddings. 

Paper is personal and we want to be a part of your life.

About Julie

I have a longstanding love for paper goods and when the opportunity to open my own stationery and gift shop in the storefront next to my husband's print shop, I couldn't pass it up. I want the store to be a great compliment to Odyssey Printing and Specialties; an inviting environment where you can come in, sit down, and get creative with your invitations. We strive to make quality paper goods that are affordable for all budgets. When I opened the store, I wasn't expecting to become a gift shop as well but we have grown to be the perfect little spot to find something for everyone- whether it is for a birthday, baby, or wedding.

When I'm not at the shop Frank and I spend most of our time at home on our farm in Buena Vista, missing our daughters Elizabeth who is in graduate school at the University of Tennessee and Caroline who is a student at the University of Georgia. We have three dogs- Bailey, a Boykin Spaniel; Charlie, a Brittany Spaniel; and a German Shorthair Pointer that we got the day UGA won the Rose Bowl so naturally we had to name her Georgia Rose!
