Our Story

Welcome to Cute Buttons Gift and Paper Boutique. We are a local, pretty paper company that specializes in custom wedding and party invitations, social stationery & lifestyle retail products.


We are passionate about pretty paper and colorful wares, and this passion shows when you work with us • We believe in the art of letter-writing • We believe that nothing beats a pretty box of personalized stationery • We believe in helping our customers find invitations that represent their own personal style • We believe in being good neighbors • We also believe that Southern charm, kindness and grace NEVER go out of style!

And it’s our hope that we help you select designs that inspire you and encourage you to celebrate this awesome gift that our God has given all of us called life.



We opened our brick-and-mortar shop in September, 2008 and enjoyed years celebrating wonderful milestones, events and memorable occasions with our customers and helped hundreds of couples with their wedding paper. We are eternally grateful for their support.

In December 2020, we transitioned from a brick-and-mortar retail shop to a studio in north Raleigh, NC and moved our pretty retail offerings online. We happily make paper appointments via phone, email or through the wedding questionnaire on our website. Our local customers may also pick up their retail items from our studio.

Come see us soon! 

With Love and Kindness,
