Hello Tenfold Wedding Invitations

Hello Tenfold is a boutique wedding invitation studio located in Durham, North Carolina, serving couples around the globe. Our specialty is giving style and personality to events, bridging the gap between traditional and modern.

Our mission

Founded in 2009 by graphic designer Ellie Snow, Hello Tenfold prides itself on excellent customer service and high quality paper goods. We believe your wedding invitations are life-long keepsakes, and strive to deliver those keepsakes at variety of price points, from flat printed to letterpress and foil stamped invitations. We work closely with couples to create paper goods to fit their style and event through an endless numbers of ink, paper, envelope, font, and pattern choices. We strive to make each customer feel like our most important. Ellie has over ten years of experience in the graphic design industry, and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in printmaking from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Style & Customization

Ellie likes working in a variety of styles, so you will find modern wedding invitations alongside vintage invitations, destination wedding invitations alongside romantic ones in the Hello Tenfold Shop. We offer flat printing, foil stamping, letterpress, screen printing, and printable wedding invitations, customized and sent to you as a PDF (keep an eye out for our DIY Invitation Kits, coming soon!). Customizing a printed invitation suite from The Collection with your choice of text, colors, fonts, paper, envelope liner pattern, and more is no additional cost. As an upgrade, you can also include double-thick paper, add a pocketfold, edge paint, custom calligraphy, corner rounding, colored envelopes, invitation bands, and more. Or, work with us on Custom wedding invitations, starting from scratch.

"Ellie has of way of creating a moment with wedding invitations. She helped us see what it would feel like for our guests to open our invitations and experience the first glimpse of our wedding."
—English & Will

We love getting creative with wedding budgets, too. We offer a 10% package discount for orders of$1,250 or more, and are full of ideas on how you can save on your invitation suite — from rubber stamps to printables to changing a 3-color design to a 1-color design — we've got ideas and we're here to help.

Our story

A few years after graduating from college (go Heels!), Ellie was working at a small graphic design firm and learning a ton about the industry, design, and the mechanics of running a small business. She started a blog and was posting design and art finds several times a day (Mint was later named one of the top 50 Design Blogs by the London Times!). Ellie began designing invitations on nights and weekends, and decided to give it a go as a full-time business. Then the economy crashed, the small design firm closed, and Ellie seized the opportunity (albeit a little sooner than planned) to focus on her dream job. Today she works alongside her husband, who founded design studio Harbor in 2014, and they have a beautiful 2-year-old daughter.

Beyond Weddings

In addition to wedding invitations and save the dates, Hello Tenfold is happy to help with Bat and Bar Mitzvah invitations, birthday party invitations, holiday party invitations, baby announcements, shower invitations, and other events. All of our designs are available with matching thank you cards, wedding programs, table numbers, menus, place cards, wedding signs, wedding contracts, and more, even if you don't see it pictured in the shop. Our Everyday collection makes for excellent gifts and post-event thank you notes.

“Ellie was a delight to work with. From the beginning, my husband and I knew that our stationery and paper ephemera would set the tone for the wedding’s look and feel, and so we searched for a long time before finding a designer who could capture the blend of boldness, playfulness, and sophistication we wanted to express. Working with Ellie was definitely the right call — she understood our needs clearly, proposed creative new ideas, and was really responsive. She also provided clear instructions to our printer in Singapore, which made our lives much easier! To this day, we treasure our paper mementos from the wedding.
