When we started Little Woman Design in December of 2011, two weeks after we ourselves got married, we knew that our mission was to provide an exceptional and fun experience for our couples as Francesca designed them unique wedding stationery that told their story as a couple through her designs.
We wanted the experience to be collaborative and creative one that brought Francesca's graphic design talents to the Greater Philadelphia wedding community. In the past three years, we have worked with over 75 amazing couples and clients, and our greatest happiness always comes from the smiles on our couples' faces as they pick up their wedding invitations.

To have our work further validated through the tremendous reviews we've received from our past couples is an even greater reward. Thanks to our couples, Little Woman Design and Francesca's design work, has been recognized for the third year in a row as we have won the 2015 Pick for The Knot Magazine's Best of Weddings for Invitations! It's a tremendous honor to win once, but to win three years in a row makes us overjoyed!
We thank all of our couples and clients for taking the time to right such thoughtful and wonderful reviews of Francesca's work! We look forward to working with more amazing couples this coming year, and will certainly continue to provide the experience our couples have come to expect from Little Woman Design.

In the Spring of 2012, Little Woman Design was thrilled to be a part of a steampunk-themed styled shoot that was the brain-child of our good friends at BG Productions. BG owner Cat and Al only gave us the theme, and told Francesca to be as creative as she wanted to be...
The invitation suite married elements of the classic Victorian era with science fiction and other traditional steampunk elements.
Besides an invitation suite, Francesca also created custom-designed seating cards as hang-tags, as well as matching place cards.
Recently, the website Emmaline Bride released a new book entitled The Inspired Bride, and we were thrilled to find out that our invitation suite — as well as many other wonderful photos by BG Productions from that glorious day — was featured in it!
Thanks to Emmaline Bride for featuring our work in her book, and for BG Productions for allowing us to be a part of this creative and awesome day! To celebrate, we are offering a 10% discount on your total purchase in our Etsy Store. Use promo code Emma10. Offer good until 10/4/14.
Since first opening our doors in 2011, we've worked with so many fantastic couples who wanted Francesca to tell their story through design. Whether it be elements from their first date, the college they went to, their love of the beach, or their favorite holiday, all chose Little Woman Design for Francesca's unique take on wedding and event stationery. One couple who we're thinking about this month is Abby and William who married a year ago this coming October!
Abby & Will wanted an elegant Halloween themed invitation suite for their Merion Tribute House Wedding. They loved the look of foil-stamp printing — the metallic foil shining off the paper — and wanted the invitation suite featured in a monogram stamped pocketfold.
For their rehearsal dinner invitation, Little Woman Design tapped the talents of graphic artist Teddy Nguyen to capture the spirit of Halloween and the Black Cat. And, after their wedding invitation suite was such a hit with their family and friends, Abby enlisted Francesca to design a ceremony program printed on parchment paper which would be rolled up and tied together with a ribbon.
We had a blast working with Abby and William! If you would like to meet with Francesca for a consultation for custom-designed wedding stationery, give us a call at 267-481-4093 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're lucky to work and collaborate with so many great wedding professionals in the Greater Philadelphia Area, and one of our favorite people to work with is Tanti Lina, owner of floral design company Papertini! Working hand-in-hand to create a marriage of paper and floral is easy when you have a couple of creative and talented artists like Little Woman Design owner Francesca Staffieri and Tanti Lina. When Cristina and Ryan hired Papertini to work with them on their floral designs for their Ritz Carlton wedding, we were thrilled to meet with Cristina and her mother to design an invitation suite and day-of stationery that would complement the midnight-garden theme Tanti had devised.
Using Tanti's vision as a take-off point, Francesca custom-designed an invitation that incorporated our bride's color palette. When it came time to choose the paper, Cristina fell in love with the metallic white paper we offer which gave the design an additional pop. Backed on metallic purple card stock, the invitation created was elegant with a touch of whimsy.
After the wedding, Cristina hired Tanti to preserve the beautiful bouquet she created for her. Hana Willow Design is the fabulous bouquet preservation company that Tanti owns, and made its debut earlier this year. Since then, she has created dozens of amazing shadow boxes that not only serve to preserve the bouquet but also highlight the wedding invitation sent out to guests. This remarkable work of art serves as a fantastic reminder long after the wedding day is finished of the beautiful day that celebrated such a wonderful couple.
And thanks to Jennifer Woodruff Studio, we are able to share these excellent pictures of a Hana Willow Designed bouquet preservation shadow box featuring a Little Woman Designed invitation as its centerpiece...
