Southern Fried Paper


Southern Fried Paper is a full-service custom invitation and event branding studio specializing in innovative designs for weddings, parties and corporate events. Led by Founder and Creative Director Chelsea Carpenter, our talented designers will create one-of-a-kind designs that will delight and surprise guests.

As a leader in luxury invitation design, we feel that invitations are works of art. Our creative team takes pride in attention to detail. From paper selection to finishing touches, every design is a personal reflection of you and your special event. Although many clients choose traditional paper stock and printing methods, we have produced invitations and event branding details from non-traditional materials such as acrylic, wood, leather, velvet, and metal, just to name a few. Our out of the box ideas have garnered attention from celebrities and national event planners and led to numerous awards including five Vendi awards from the American Association of Certified Wedding Planners, features in publications like Martha Stewart Weddings, BRIDES Magazine, Inside Weddings, Southern Living and more.

Each client is guided through a stress-free design process as we craft the luxury invitations that are tailor-made for you. The creativity doesn’t end at the envelope; we also create coordinating event décor such as menus, signage, programs, and favors. Every detail is meticulously designed and custom-made to reflect the overall brand or theme. We’ve worked on projects with a guest list of 10 and some with an attendance of thousands. From Dallas to Dubai. We are truly passionate about our craft and think it shows in the quality and depth of our work.
