• Our Story


    Emily O. Holmes Custom Paper Lovelies (EOH) is a Nashville-based stationery and invitation company owned and operated by the husband-and-wife team of Emily and Wade Holmes.

    Our love for coming alongside friends and family as they celebrate special occasions drew Emily to use her passion for art to create original designs for weddings, birthdays, baby showers, anniversaries, and other special events. What began as a small side-business has developed into a full-time, quickly-growing stationery and invitation company. Five years after Emily started the business Wade came on board as the business manager. Wade has been able to use his organizational skills in order to free up Emily to focus on design. He manages all accounts, works with local print shops, and keeps everything running smoothly and efficiently.

    We have seen the demand for quality and meaningful paper products increase greatly over the last handful of years. To us this makes perfect sense! At a time when digital communication is so common, the rarity of the handwritten word has more impact and meaning than ever. You may receive countless text messages, emails, and other forms of digital communication in a single day, but you also know how special you feel when someone takes the time to write you a handwritten note. There is something that a handwritten note on a nice piece of stationery conveys that makes digital communication seem cold and distant by comparison. When you get an elegant wedding invitation printed on quality paper you immediately know that you’ve just been invited to an extra special wedding! We love helping people achieve these same types of aesthetics, which elicit similar emotional responses in others.

    It is a gift to be able to work with individuals and their unique stories every day. We love getting to know our clients so that we can incorporate their families, their passions, and their personalities into each piece of stationery or invitation that goes out. We have great relationships with local printing and letterpress companies and we personally approve every single layout to ensure that each job receives the best treatment. Let us know any ways that we can help you as you look through our product lines.

    Thank you for visiting us,

    Emily and Wade
