Eldridge Stationers was founded by husband-wife team Amanda and Doc Eldridge in 2019 as a branch of their commercial printing company located in Athens, GA.
A few months after the birth of their first daughter in 2013, they were given an opportunity to purchase a local printing company that had been in business for over 28 years (Oconee Printing) and the two learned the industry from the ground up becoming specialty printing and paper experts.
Initially, Amanda thought Doc would run the business and she would ease back in to selling real estate, the field they both were working in when the two first met…fast forward 7 years and that’s not at all what happened!
Quickly realizing there was a gap in the printing business between the printer and designers, Amanda went to work.
Designers needed someone they could trust to produce their vision and source their specialty papers without having to pay outrageous prices. Brides needed designers who could put their personality on paper while providing the quality their mothers and grandmothers desired. She found this new generation of brides appreciated traditional designs that were clean and beautiful, but wanted to step away from the old school invitation styles. Creating something the mothers of the bride and the bride could agree on was something Amanda not only was good at, but she loved it. The designs are timeless and the printing is of the highest character.Today you will still find the husband and wife team, along with their 4 and 7 year old daughters, under one roof printing and designing. In 2019 they expanded in order to better serve their commercial customers with Oconee Printing and their everyday and bridal customers with Eldridge Stationers. They sell wholesale for their grab and go products including paper placemats and other tabletop items as well as ready made stationery products.
