My Story

Thanks for stopping by! I have been designing wedding stationery for over 17 years.

My love for design has been a life long pursuit. I  knew from an early age that I wanted to be an entrepreneur. Formally trained in Creative Advertising, out of design school

I worked for some of Canada's largest companies. Landing myself on the society pages at only 26 years old as a national special events coordinator, I quickly moved up into the world of corporate and philanthropic events. Sitting on organizing committees such as of Fashion Cares (Toronto and Calgary), The Look Good Feel Better Ball and many others. As I honed my skills I began to plan my future.  Designing wedding stationery on weekends and after work, I started to build a brand and business. I wanted to inspire and bring something different to the industry.  Through referrals and personal devotion to my craft, my side business was really taking off! A few years later in 2005 I took the leap, and opened my doors full time. Nothing makes me happier than to bring my client's vision to life and be a part of one of the most memorable times in their lives. 

"I want to create a piece of your life story, that you will hold on to and remember forever."

I currently work from my home studio just north of Toronto in Caledon. I am married to a wonderful partner who has been my biggest cheerleader for over 20 years. I have a beautiful teenage daughter who can be found helping her mom from time to time and learning the art of invitation making!  And finally, my little dog Eddie, who will undoubtedly notify me of your arrival with his 'enthusiasm' :) .  When I am not designing, you can find me teaching or taking a yoga class, sipping a cup of tea or meeting up with my best girlfriends. I love to travel, soak up the sun, and ride my bike .  I thank you for stopping here and reading a little about me and my business. I welcome you to book a time where we can sit down together and I can learn more about you, and how I can help you plan your our big day xo

Alison was amazing!

Working with her has been a fantastic experience. Even with the ups and down of planning a wedding during the pandemic, she made the process so easy and brought our vision to life! Our invitations were a hit and all the print items used throughout the day complimented our decor so well. Highly recommend The Invitation Place!

The Invitation Place is the place to go.

Alison is amazing. I am so glad I found her for our wedding invitations and stationary.
I was so happy with her professionalism, kindness and ability to listen to what we wanted for our stationary.
She has an incredibly quick response time with email and was thorough with her responses. She is flexible with pick up times and is super friendly.
We got so many compliments on our invites, and I'm sure we will get the same amount of compliments on our thank you cards once we send them out.
I would recommend anyone to Alison and the Invitation Place for stationary for all occasions.

Amazing quality and such a pleasure to work with!

I had Alison do my save the date cards, invitations, place cards, menus, seating charts, fans with details about the ceremony/reception and my thank you cards!
Her work is absolutely amazing, I can not even begin to explain how happy I was with everything. She always goes above and beyond and everything is always better than you could have imagined. Alison has such an amazing personality, she comes across so friendly through email conversations and when you meet her in person she greets you with the biggest smile and that amazingly friendly personality, you feel like you've known her forever! Her pricing is very reasonable and the quality of products is outstanding!
I would without a doubt recommend The Invitation Place to anyone and everyone looking for someone do their wedding invitations and other stationary.
Thank you so much Alison for everything you did!
