After years of creating wedding-related paper goods for friends and friends of friends, I decided to start Frank & Ruth Press. I believe an invitation should make guests excited for your day. I also don't think you should have to sacrifice design or print quality just to stay on budget. All invitations are created and screen printed by me, Ashley Elander Strandquist.

Inspired by and named for my grandparents (pictured here), Frank & Ruth Pogoda were travelers who adored antiques, artists, and the handmade.

Frank & Ruth Press is based in Chicago, but you don't have to be! Thanks to the internet and postal service, we can work together whether you're in the midwest or beyond.
