Rock Paper Scissors is a custom invitation and paper goods shop with a sweet spot for letterpress located in Charlottesville, Virginia on the historic downtown walking mall. Frequented by designers and do-it-yourselfers alike, RPS offers a well-curated collection of greeting cards, sophisticated papers, stylish desk accessories, and modern gifts for every day. Don’t forget to visit the “Wall of Inspiration” to check out wedding invitations, stationery, business cards, invitations (bridal showers, baby showers, birthday, you name it...), and more. You, too, can aspire to make the Wall!

Co-owners and friends Heather Haynie and Dani Antol took over the RPS helm in 2010. Heather heads up the retail side of the business, finessing what to order, when, and how many. She loves hearing shoppers laugh out loud or ooh and aah as they read cards in the shop—confirmation that she’s brought on the right mix of sassy & sweet. Heather also works closely with brides who order from their many custom albums. She helps them navigate the etiquette waters, wordsmithing any situation and giving Emily Post a run for her money. Her counterpart, Dani, is the creative director and lead designer who thrives on branding weddings. She takes a bride’s vision for the big day and translates it onto paper with stunning detail. Many of her designs have been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, The Knot, Southern Weddings, and Weddings Unveiled magazines not to mention countless blogs! Dani’s a typography guru and color queen, and has designed some wicked corporate logos, too. Together, they have been making brides happy and keeping the art of letter writing, gift wrapping and sleek desk organization alive!

But Heather and Dani wouldn’t be anywhere without the mastermind behind it all, so they must give credit where credit is due. RPS was the brainchild of Amy Gardner, owner of SCARPA. She started the paper boutique back in 2002 in a space slightly smaller than a postage stamp. Nurtured by Amy’s keen eye for well-designed things (oh, those UVA Architecture School graduates), she filled the void that Charlottesvilliains everywhere were experiencing in the personal correspondence and fashionable office supplies departments. Thank you, Amy!
