Erickson's Homemade Invites

2005_02_erickson_invite.jpgChicagoist loves to find locally made products that we can spend our money on instead of .. you know.. like eating and stuff. Carry handbags was one we really liked (and bought). Another that we plan on getting some girly tees from after we get paid is Formula Werks. Yet another recent find is Erickson Design's handmade invitations.

Erickson Design is based in Portage Park and has been around for about 6 years. They've got an extensive line of wedding invitations, birth announcements and holiday greeting cards and also can custom make just about any type of card or invitiation you might need. We spoke with Bill from Erickson (ok, ok, it was via email) and he told us that they're really excited about a letter pressed line of invitations they're adding soon. And also that they're going to be featured in an upcoming "Weddings in Houston" magazine. So the word is getting out on this local gem.

Now, Chicagoist just has to think of a reason to have a big party (a wedding? uh.. no! a baby? NO WAY!) and we'll be there. For sure, our next holiday cards are coming from Erickson.
