About this Vendor

Xowyo paper and press produces thoughtfully designed stationery, paper goods and welcome gifts for weddings and specials events from our studio in the heart of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. A littler history on the company: Founder Cara Rank was getting married in 2009 and was trying to do a lot of her wedding herself, including designing her save the dates and wedding invitations. She signed all her save the dates xowyo, not really knowing then the seed that phrase was planting in her head. When it was time for the invitations, she had this idea of screen printing her invitation on muslin cloth, and having her mom sew the edges. After they were sent out, everyone told her how much they loved them (the men folded the invites into pocket squares and wore in their suits to the wedding). At that point she realized a stationery company that offered unique, hand-made products like this could work, especially in Jackson Hole.

After her wedding that September, her photographer (Carrie Patterson) sent her photos off to a few editors, and they were published on Style Me Pretty and Martha Stewart (you may not want to name these places, which I understand!!!). Style Me Pretty even named it their favorite wedding of 2009. After that, brides started contacted Cara from all over the country about making them wedding invitations. So, the company was born and named xowyo after the signature on my save the dates. Cara, who started her career in journalism, brings a unique perspective to the wedding invitation industry. She approaches design projects with the eye of a writer and with an understanding of paper and printing processes essential to a quality finished product.
