Earmark Invitations is a collaboration between husband and wife team Mike Berndt and Bridgette Salvon. The company got its start in 2003 when Bridgette was designing invitations for their own wedding. She offered her advice in an online forum, and to her surprise people began requesting to buy invitation designs from her. As the business continued to grow, Bridgette was looking for help, and fate intervened by having Mike fired from his job. Thus, a partnership was formed. In 2006, Earmark Invitations expanded into stationery and greeting cards. This was the perfect opportunity for Bridgette and Mike to exercise their unique sense of humor, as well as flex their design muscles. Mixing creative, colorful designs with a heavy dose of sarcasm and irony, Earmark's designs are always meant to bring a smile to your face.
IN THE PRESS:Earmark Invitations has been featured in Modern Bride, Brides, Chocolate Brides, Women's' Health and Bust Magazine, as well as Daily Candy, InStyle, Etsy Weddings blog, Design Sponge and many other design and handmade craft blogs. It was an Etsy Featured Seller in May 2008, and in 2007 they visited Sundance Film Festival to hand out products to celebrities such as Antonio Banderas, Rashida Jones, Mos Def, Tom Arnold, Ellen Page, Gary Coleman, Kate Walsh and many others.
