What started out as a side hobby has turned into a full time business - creating custom invitations and announcements! All of the custom designed invites and announcements you find here are unique, personalized and the most cost effective way to have amazing custom invitations created for your next party or event!

How it Works:

1. Find a design you love or have one custom made. 

2. Purchase the digital file. 

3. Upload the file to the printing center of your choice (Costco, Walmart, Walgreens, etc.)

4. Pick up your printed invitations/announcements from the print location you chose

5. Pay 90% less than ordering them online 

Having the printing done at your local print center will run about .10 to .20 per print - much cheaper than the $1.00 - $3.00 per invite you will find at custom invitation websites.

Register Now for Summer Camps!
Last Week of the Summer 
August 27 to 31

Watercolours by the Water (SPACES STILL AVAILABLE!)
9:00 AM to 12:00 PM • Ages: 9 to 12 
A relaxing week of observation and outdoor adventure, this camp focuses on using watercolours and aquarelles to capture natural landscapes. We'll begin with an introduction to the language of watercolour, including stretching paper, exploring wash resist techniques and the importance of translucency. On sunny days, we'll pack up our supplies and walk to different locations where we'll work to capture the natural beauty of the ocean, ponds and parklands. Most days will begin with reading from a novella as students sketch. 

Teen Writers Outside (SPACES STILL AVAILABLE!)
6:00 PM to 9:00 PM • Ages: 12 to 18 
Our surroundings can influence our writing, either directly or indirectly. During this week we'll venture outside the Lyceum to write in the streets, parks and businesses of our community. This camp provides students with a motivating and encouraging writing environment where they can explore their writing interests as individuals within a supportive workshop format. Lyceum staff will assist with editing tips and strategies to overcome writing blocks.
