All we wanted was a wedding invitation that captured our style. All we found was generic stationery we could “customize” by picking a paper color and typeface. So, as a graphic-designer bride and copywriter groom, we made our own. And when everyone asked, “Hey, where’d you get that invitation?” we started Card Tricks Designs.

From a Viva Las Vegas birthday bash to a Tuscany wedding to a hockey bar mitzvah, we’ve created extraordinary invitations for countless events through the years. Each one-of-a-kind work of art tells its unique story with distinctive design, unexpected ingenuity and inspiration from our clients.

We can’t wait to get started on yours!
