Please check out our new offerings but clicking on the “New Products for 2019” on the main menu bar on the top right of any page!

We also offer a number of other wedding ensemble items from full computer calligraphy service; postage and mailing of your invitations for you; fully lined, hand cut and assembled custom envelope liners; table/place cards, etc. Just take a look at the navigation bar at the top right of this page for our complete line of products and order forms.

We can provide you with many options for both at very affordable prices to make your wedding suite your very own!

If you have special artwork that you would like to incorporate into any of your wedding stationary items, let us know! Specialty art has been very popular and we have done many on both invitations, envelope liners and program covers.

Our Services Include:


Since 1933, clients have worked with Reaves to create the perfect wedding invitation over the years. Each invitation suite is customized for you with your choice of fonts, papers, ink colors, paper types and printing processes.


Programs make your guests feel “at home” during your wedding ceremony by providing a guide to the ceremony and the people involved in it.

Save the Dates

Provide your guests with a sneak peak of the wedding style with your personalized Save the Date announcement!                                                                                          

Social Stationery

Traditionally each person in a household would have his or her own social stationery. As writing notes becomes more of a special occasion than a common occurence, the traditional standards of etiquette are changing.



A simple element can add a personal touch to your reception or party. At the bar, the cake station or at tables, personalized napkins help create your theme. A variety of colors, foils and even designs make your napkins as unique as your event.


Let Reaves address the envelopes for your invitations or save the dates to save you time, effort and stress.                                                                                                             

Birth Announcements

Reaves is pleased to offer several traditional and contemporary birth announcements to celebrate your blessed event.

Party Invitations

Some events deserve more than a fill-in-the-blank invitation.  For those events, consider using our house papers to provide pizzazz and personalization to the party.


What our Customers Say!

I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to your team for my wedding invitations! We received them this weekend and we were absolutely over the moon - they are perfect! We shared them with our parents and they were so elated with the results. We couldn’t get over the design, the colors, the feel of the printing... I could go on. They arrived at the perfect time and are currently on the way to our guests.

Thank you again for being incredibly helpful throughout this process - your team made it so easy and we can’t wait to continue working with you in the future!

Words cannot express how beautiful our wedding invitation suites turned out. We worked thoroughly with Barbara, Connie and Morgan to design a wedding invitation that looked both regal and made a statement. It is with their expertise and flexibility that we are beyond thrilled with the final product. Thank you to the Reaves Engraving team for your kindness and knowledge. Our wedding invitation suites are most spectacular and they will be framed in our home to admire for a lifetime as they are truly pieces of art.

Many thanks,

The wedding invitations are in the mail! They arrived yesterday and look so beautiful. It is very special to know Reaves Engraving is the same company my late mother worked with nearly 30 years ago for our wedding invitations. Thank you for maintaining such high standards and for excellent service.
— Leigh Ann H.
I am in love with all the things we ordered from Reaves and my guests were so WOWed by the invites!!! I will be sharing Reaves with all my friends as they get engaged!!
— Tara S.
I have just returned from the Post Office where our beautiful wedding invitations will be hand canceled for delivery. It has been a pleasure to use your company once again for a daughter’s wedding invitations. The attention to detail every step along the way was extremely comforting, to know that the invitations would be lovely and the calligraphy would be completed with precision.

Thank you very much for your wonderful service and beautiful product. I am so pleased that the invitations will be received two months prior to the wedding, giving guests an opportunity to reply in a timely fashion and giving the bride and me the time frame to have place cards printed. We are also interested in having you print the program for the ceremony once we have all the details place that order.

Thank you for your excellent service and product.

— M. H.
I am sorry to say I failed to let you know the programs and welcome booklets came right on time and they were perfectly beautiful! Everyone has commented on the programs. I just wanted to thank you for putting up with my countless emails and corrections and my many phone calls. You all are wonderful and I will HIGHLY recommend Reaves! Thank you for your patience and your kindness. The Save the Dates, the invitations, the programs, and the welcome booklets were absolutely the prettiest we have ever seen! Thank you for helping us create the stage for a truly southern wedding!
— L.A.M.
I was pleased with Reaves Engraving! In addition to creating beautiful, classic, and elegant wedding invitations, Reaves did a wonderful job with our programs as well! I found Reaves to be very reasonably priced, and an absolute pleasure to work with!
— M.T.O.
I cannot say enough amazing things about Reaves Engraving! If you are looking for unbelievable quality for an affordable price, this place is the real deal. From the napkins to the invitations to the calligraphy, Reaves was able to bring my classic, formal wedding theme to life in the most beautiful way and within budget. Not to mention, I had to do this all over the phone due to living in Boston and they were so accommodating with all of my requests, extremely positive via email, and a delight to talk with over the phone! Thank you Reaves for bringing my vision for our special day to life!
— J. T.
We are still blown away at how stunning our invitations turned out. They were elegant, well made and absolutely beautiful. We experienced great customer service and they were delivered in a timely manner. They are so affordable compared to other companies I received quotes from. Highly, highly recommend!
