YOUR LOVE IS, WELL, IT'S YOURS.
And we think your wedding invitations should match.
No one knows your relationship, your love, your vision for your big day, like you do. It’s our job to sit down, listen to your story and bring that story to life on paper.
You want the lace pattern from your dress pressed ever so delicately into cotton paper? We can do that. You want whimsical illustrations of the goat on the roof at Al Johnson’s? That sounds amazing. You want hand painted watercolor greenery? You betcha. We love making your wedding wishes come true - no matter what they are.
At Bay View Printing Co. we believe in slowing down and taking our time with each and every client. As a letterpress design + print shop, all our invitations are custom designed and printed by hand one-at-a-time – a process that takes time, attention to detail and meticulous care.

Prior to discovering Ashley and Bay View Printing Co., I was lost in my search for a wedding invitation suite that I felt captured our aesthetic. Everywhere I looked I saw more of the same design, in addition to being insanely overpriced. Within the first few moments of speakingwith Ashley, I could tell that she was the person we wanted to work with to create our one of kind wedding invitations. Our first, and only, phone conversation was spent discussing my husband and me as a couple; what we liked and didn’t like; our vision for the wedding. After that initial phone call, all correspondence was completed via email as I live in Chicago; but the flexibility and comfort of working with someone that can translate all of your ideas via email and make them into a reality is the wish of any bride and groom planning a wedding. We were in awe of Ashley’s design: she created the most beautiful, one of a kind wedding invitation suite that we will cherish for years to come. Ashley is also a savior. My husband and I were down to the wire on getting the day of signage designed and I turned to Ashley for help; she came through, in addition to helping my husband and I realize our vision of having her artwork blown up to be poster sized as a welcome sign for our guests. Her amazing talent brought all our wishes together in a wonderfully visceral way that we will always be grateful for. Thank you, Ashley!
Working with Ashley at Bay View was great. She quickly grasped what the bride and groom were all about and translated our words into unique and evocative graphics. We knew the letterpress process would result in something memorable, but it was nice that many an invited guest spontaneously told us how beautiful and unusual the invitations were. In the end, the invitations captured the spirit and set the whole tone of the wedding.
It was so wonderful working with Ashley and her colleagues at Bay View Printing. We didn't necessarily have a vision for our invitations, but as soon as we arrived for our consultation we knew that we wanted Ashely to create our wedding suite. She began by getting to know usgenerally and asking questions about our venue style. She then showed us a book of her past work and had us tell her what we liked and didn't like about different suites. After we were halfway through the book, Ashley was able to predict what we would and wouldn't like about a suite. We were so impressed with our invitations and day of goods when they came out, and Ashley and her colleagues made sure that we were taken care of through the whole process. Letterpress is a beautiful style for wedding invitations, and there is no one that could do it better than Ashley.
So grateful to have collaborated with Ashley Town & Bay View Printing Co. for the design and printing of our invitation suite! We didn't have a clear sense of what we wanted when we started the process, but Ashley worked with us every step of the way, taking our ideas (and apicture of a plate I loved!) into account and refining the design with her artful eye. The finished product was so much better than I could have imagined; it was whimsical yet sophisticated and captured the feeling of our day so well with an impeccable print quality. Our invitation suite is a work of art in itself—and we've already had it framed so that we can enjoy it in our home as a lasting memory of the day! Also, if you're able to visit the studio in Milwaukee, do so—it's an incredible operation. Proud to support an independent, woman-owned business that is making such an *impression*! Pun intended. :)
Ashley was amazing to work with! She helped us create our custom wedding invitation and from the work and patience that she had with us while she created them, we decided that she was the one to create our escort cards and thank you cards! After looking online at multiple sites who specialize in wedding invitations and speaking with other individual companies, no one/nothing could compare to Bay View Printing. From the quality to the cost to the overall experience! Everything was wonderful!
I worked with Ashley in the capacity of wedding planner to one of my clients. Ashley created a look first for our invites and later for all paper goods used at the wedding and it was perfect - she wove together a seamless brand experience for the bride and groom and their guests. She was extremely accommodating and patient throughout the entire process and was open to edits and changes along the way while providing a good, but not pushy point of view. Very easy to work with and has a great price point. I would certainly recommend her and work with her again.
Ashley Town did a wonderful job on our invitations and day of paper goods. She designed them for us and was so helpful every step of the way. What is so great about working with her over a bigger store is we could make lots of updates and tweaks as we needed. Especially ifyou're not artistically inclined like me :), a lot of times you do not know what you want until you actually see it mocked up. Its clear she wants her couples to really be happy with the end product. You know going in how much it is going to cost and don't have to worry about types of paper or multiple revisions driving up the cost unexpectedly. My husband and I would recommend Bay View Printing Co to anyone who wants to work with a great local Milwaukee Vendor!
Ashley was wonderful to work with! My favorite part of the whole process was you did not look through a book and pick your favorite invitation to put your information on! It was a 100% original design! Ashley communicated well throughout the process and the finished product was beautiful. We also had her do day of paper goods and they were top notch as well! Would not look anywhere else for paper goods. You are in fantastic hands with Bay View Printing!
We hired Ashley and her team for wedding invitations as well as a bunch of day-of paper goods, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with how everything turned out. Ashley was organized, responsive, and attentive to our wishes during every step of the process. Ashley and the other folks at BVPC are beyond talented and the letterpress on our invitations and programs gave them a unique, gorgeous depth that you hardly ever see on stationary anymore. We received many compliments on the invitations, with at least two people commenting that they were the prettiest they had ever seen. The invitation design ended up being so creative and stunningly beautiful that we had her replicate all of it on our program covers as well as the welcome poster, and part of the design on our thank-you cards, with another design element on our reception place cards. We can’t wait to frame the reception welcome poster—it’s definitely something we’ll enjoy for years to come. We loved how she coordinated every one-of-a-kind detail, and appreciated how responsibly she moved us along our timeline. She did a terrific job following up with us on each step, and when things hit a momentary snag because of a miscommunication on our part, she helped resolve it quickly and graciously—what amazing customer service! All the way from consultation, through design and proofing, and to the final pick-up, Ashley exceeded our expectations and delighted our guests. Two thumbs up and five stars for sure!

We loved working with Ashley! I had a really specific design look that I wanted and she worked with me throughout the entire process to create something that I truly fell in love with! Her commitment to detail and customer happiness is so appreciated. I would recommend working with Ashley to anyone. She will work to make sure you are 100 percent happy with your look.
The Bay View Printing Company was absolutely wonderful to work with from the second we walked in the door till the very end of production and pick-up! They truly listened to our likes and dislikes and designed a unique package of wedding invitations. RSVPs, and details cardsthat perfectly reflected our personalities and the look and vibe we wanted! We received so many compliments on our invitations! The shop and employees/owner were beyond accommodating every step of the way! I honestly cannot say enough great things about this shop and their workers! If you want a uniquely “you” set of invitations, you won’t regret going with the Bay View Printing Company. I couldn’t recommend them more strongly! :)
Ashley at Bay View Printing Co was a pleasure to work with! The entire process from beginning design ideas to the final printed products was incredible. We loved working with a Wisconsin shop to print everything, and we got loads of compliments on the invites and coasters. It was really important to us to have unique and fun invites that felt like us, and Ashley's designs were perfect! Can't wait to work with Ashley again on future projects, and attend a print class at the studio!
Ashley Town did a fabulous job on our invitations. She designed them for us and was helpful every step of the way, paper quality and craftsmanship were beautiful. My husband and I would recommend Bay View Printing Co to anyone who wants quality wedding invites in Milwaukee.
Ashley's invitations were out of this world. A pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Highly recommended!
Ashley was fantastic to work with and I am so in love with my wedding invitations! They are gorgeous and very unique to us as a couple! I highly recommend Bay View Printing Co!!! I will for sure come back to create additional paper goods for my wedding.
Bay View Printing is a true treasure in Milwaukee. My husband and I were very unsure about stationary and if we wanted to hire someone to do stationary. We saw some of their work around Milwaukee, so we decided to check it out. I cannot say how glad I am to have chosen Bay View Printing instead of an online vendor. After one meeting, Ashley totally got the vision my husband and I wanted, that you cannot find at the online retailers. She e-mailed with my regularly, always making me feel part of the process, and we worked together to create some truly amazing products. Our invitations, programs, and signage had a fun whimsical flair. They even made coasters for our favors and stickers for our guestbook. The welcome sign is a keepsake my husband and I will always have. I cannot recommend them enough to local brides. Thanks guys!
Ashley from Bayview custom designed our wedding invitations for our wedding in Chicago in May 2017. We met Ashley at a “Wedtoberfest” event in Chicago, and since her prices were much more reasonable than most Chicago designers, we decided to do some further research into her work, and loved what we saw. Ashley was extremely easy to work with, and so creative! We had really no idea what we wanted our invitation to look like, but she talked with us over Skype (since we were not local to Milwaukee), got a sense for our style, and created a very unique invitation that matched perfectly with other elements of the wedding. She sent us a first draft, which was already near perfect, and then went through several rounds of edits with us as our ideas and details about the day of changed. The final product was so fun and unique. Several of our guests commented on how awesome they thought the invites looked, with many saying it was the coolest wedding invitation they’ve ever seen!
This place is amazing. We booked a private "Ink & Drink" for my bachelorette party. We had a group of 7 people which felt like a good size and we got there a little after 5 and left around 8:30. They were very accommodating and it was so nice to bring in our own food and drinkswhile we created mini masterpieces. We worked with Lucas and he was so great - incredibly patient, funny, and helpful. If you're looking for a creative, FUN, low key and chill group activity - this is it! I didn't want the night to completely focus around drinking and this was a GREAT activity to hang out with my friends for awhile instead of yelling at each other in a loud bar (we just did that later!). All of my friends said they had a great time and we all got super cool prints to take home at the end of the night. I would totally do this again and might check out their open studio times. It was a blast and I highly recommend it if you're looking for something a little different for a bachelorette party! I've seen some of their work and it's gorgeous. Cannot recommend this place enough.
Working with Ashley was an absolute pleasure! The attentiveness and creativity during the production process was top notch. The quality of our wedding invitations surpass any invitations we have seen. Thank you Bay View Printing Company!
As a designer myself, I was a little worried about making sure our invitations were exactly what we wanted. However, I worried for no reason because Ashley totally understood my vision and made it happen. We are so happy with the final product and our guests have been very complementary! Pricing was definitely reasonable for the quality of design, paper and overall experience.
Ashley at Bayview Printing Co. did a phenomenal job on our wedding invitations. I remember contacting her after finding her on Instagram, she replied quickly + we we met within a week! She came with a binder full of her work and right then and there we knew we would be takencare for the whole process. We first started by just dreaming about what we like and we wanted something simple + classic. She sent us over a draft of what we were thinking and she nailed it! However, Ashley always encouraged us that if we wanted anything changed that is was no problem to tell her. She really made us feel comfortable and confident. When we received our invites, I was so stinkin' impressed + so were our guests. We had so many compliments on our design, the detail of the press, and the quality of the cotton paper. I just can't thank Ashley enough! This was by far the best experience we had during our wedding planning process. You rock Bayview Printing Co.!
Bay View Printing Co. did an amazing job on our save-the-dates, invitations, programs, etc! We wanted something unique and fun and she absolutely delivered. We received so many compliments on everything and the design really set the tone for the type of party we were throwing. We are so thankful to have worked with such a talented and reliable vendor. I would highly recommend working with them for your wedding!
Ashley was such a pleasure to work with. She was really easy to communicate with both over the phone and email. Our final invitations came out vibrant, professional, and unique. We would definitely recommend Bay View for you wedding invitation suite.
Ashley is AMAZING! Very easy to work with and designed invitations that fit our wedding and personality perfectly.
