Type A was born out of a love for creating with my hands. I wanted to create a brand that celebrates and elevates the thoughtfully unique. I wanted to be able to use my creativity to bring fulfillment to my life by giving joy to others through my work.

Our Story

We are a full service, boutique design and letterpress studio. We specialize in bespoke weddings creating everything from save the dates, invitations, and day-of stationery like posters, signage, escort cards, etc. We also create handcrafted guest books and thank you cards.

The other half of our studio is Type A Branding where we work with clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small solo-preneurs on creating modern iconic brands.

We pride ourselves on bringing individual’s unique brands to life through modern sophisticated, and thoughtful design. Every element has a purpose, a meaning. Nothing is designed simply to be aesthetically pleasing; we go deeper. We also don’t try to fit our clients into a box. We use our expertise to help tell our client’s story; we don’t use their stories to tell our own.

Type A saves you from seeming ordinary. We visualize your uniqueness and help you WOW! your tribe.

BRIAN ROBINSON

Senior Vice President

Plumber by day, Type A’s champion by night. Brian’s undying support of Ashleigh and her business from the time it was just a dream without a name, has been the quiet propellent of Type A’s success. Whether it’s helping line envelopes, cut paper, or build custom studio walls (yes!), he is always helping with anything and everything. Sipping whiskey, riding machines, and catching sunsets with Ashleigh and the hound are Brian’s favorite things.
