Wendy Nooney worked for over 17 years as a graphic designer and art director for a marketing agency. While she enjoyed working with clients and designing projects on the computer something was missing from her life. When Ms. Nooney’s was asked to create illustrated invitations for a friend’s wedding rehearsal dinner she realized that she wanted to return to her true passions – drawing and painting. In 2011 her dream became a reality when NooneyArt Designs opened in upstate New York.
Ms. Nooney’s hand painted watercolors and pen and ink illustrations are used to create unique and stunning wedding invitation sets and have drawn local, national, and international clients. Her one-of-a-kind designs are converted to digital format and printed onto fine papers with matching envelopes to create a complete package.
With her artist’s eye for design, Ms. Nooney realized that she needed to incorporate something more into her work in order to complete her invitations. She decided to add ribbon and states, “I came across RibbonBazaar.com when I was searching online for wholesale ribbon and string to use as embellishments for my invitation designs. They had a wonderful selection of satin ribbons in many colors and sizes. I placed an order for a few colors and was very impressed with the quality of the products and how quickly they were delivered.”
Now she uses RibbonBazaar’s satin ribbons on several of her products including invitations, menu cards, and gift tags as well as her own package designs. Examples of her use of our ribbons in her designs include the incorporation of our 7/8” navy satin ribbon in the starfish design, the 5/8” black satin ribbon in her Tuscan olive design. Her watercolor vineyard design incorporates the sangria satin ribbon and the raspberry watercolor petunia design utilizes the spring moss satin ribbon.
In addition to her ready-to-order invitation sets, Ms. Nooney also has an extensive clientele for customized orders. She loves that she is able to order sample ribbon swatches from RibbonBazaar to show clients when designing their invitations.
Beautifully illustrated and designed, the wedding invitation sets from NooneyArt Designs allow a couple to share the announcement of their special day in style and RibbonBazaar.com is thrilled to be included in that process. Ms. Nooney offers a large selection of ready-to-order designs and also accepts orders for custom designs via her Etsy shop and website.
