About Type A Invitations
Founded in 2015, by award-winning artist and designer Ashleigh Robinson, Type A Invitations has quickly become one of the DMV's elite stationers, specializing in custom wedding stationery. Based just outside of Washington, D.C., Type A Invitations has a different approach to wedding invitations – we create whatever you want, even if you don't know what that is. That's right, there are no books or pages that you have to flip through to hope you find “it.” We know it took long enough to lock down “the one” (you know, your fiancé). So, we believe that no one should have to keep swiping left when it comes to planning their dream day!
