Carlson Craft Custom Invitations and Cards

Carlson Craft, one of the nation's leading wholesale invitation printing companies, was founded as a part-time venture by Mr. and Mrs. Carlson, in 1948. At the time, they sold just one style of wedding invitation, white paper printed with black ink. They quickly became known in their community for the attention to detail and excellent customer service they offered to their customers, and within six months after opening their small home business, Carlson Letter Service (as it was known at the time) became a full-time retail operation. In 1962, when the business name was changed to Carlson Craft, they employed 50 employees and Carlson Craft wedding invitations and other personalized stationery products were offered for sale in 26 states. Since then, Carlson Craft has continued to grow and now has dealers in all 50 states of the United States and in many foreign countries.

Currently, Carlson Craft produces custom - printed products for both commercial and social customers. While traditional invitations - black ink printed on white paper - are still available, Carlson Craft now carries papers and envelopes in all colors of the rainbow. The custom text that you compose for your invitations, cards and announcements will be printed in your choice of a wide array of ink colors, and in your choice of printing method; flat (lithography), digital, thermography (raised lettering), traditional engraving, letterpress, or foil stamping.


Its extensive selection of beautiful, professionally crafted personalized products has made it one of the most well-known and largest printers of social stationery in the United States.
