About Me

Meet Fran

Hello there! Welcome to my invitation and papery studio, Invitations by R Squared!

IMG_1345 editedCongratulations is in order because if you are here it is probably because you are at the beginning stages of planning your wedding day and are looking for your perfect wedding invitation suite. I am so happy you stopped by because this is where you can custom design your wedding invitations or personalize one of our pre-designed wedding invitations as much or as little as you want for your wedding day stationery.

In 2013, I went to the NSS (National Stationery Show) in NYC and that is where I fell in love with all things paper. I swooned for two days!!  I returned home not exactly sure how to add stationery designer to my already thriving jewelry business, but I had caught the bug and there was no turning back… I jumped right into my new endeavor by seeking out professional training at The Stationery Academy in Dallas, Texas.  I learned so much and became even more excited to follow my new passion after interacting with this amazing group of stationery and invitation designers. I haven’t looked back since!

I specialize in all things wedding stationery be it traditional, theme-based and destination wedding invitations. From beautiful sandy beaches to the bright lights of Vegas to a down-home western affair, our design team works with you to create the perfect invitation for your special day.  Since weddings are so much fun, we’ve decided not to stop there.  I am excited to soon offer baby showers invitations and birth announcements.

I want to help you create invitations you will swoon over. Your wedding invitations will set the stage for what your guests should expect on your wedding day, it is the first impression and can say so much about the look and feel of your big day. I love LOVE and I put my heart into designing invitations that have a unique flair for all kinds of brides. Whether you are a traditional or non-traditional bride I am passionate about making your invitations exactly the way you want them using good type (fonts), pretty colors and yummy paper.
