THE INDEX

MORE OF MY STORY

Founded by Nessa Sander in 2003, Nessa has evolved her boutique design business from Cardgirl Invitations to The Card Bar, and is now simply Nessa Sander. Nessa operates her design and letterpress company out of her brick + mortar store in Excelsior, Minnesota, along the water of Lake Minnetonka. From one-of-a-kind wedding and event invitation suites to unique and sophisticated stationery and business cards, every single piece that leaves Nessa’s shop doors is a true, meticulously crafted and original work of art.
Nessa loves to combine old with new to create a unique product. Whether it’s whimsical, clean + modern, classic, we love it all. We work with clients styles of all types, and love to create for YOU to reflect YOU.
In our brick + mortar shop (Water on Water), we have a Chandler & Price letterpress. We outsource our foil stamping & offset printing to a small company we have been working with for over ten years.  


Nessa has become known for her simple & timeless aesthetic, whether through minimal, refined design or colorful experimentation. Her approach towards design & the unique client experience makes each creation uniquely personal to her clients.  The process is inspiring.

"I love to ink up the press and watch the ink spread out on the plate.  It's very satisfying."

I'm a chill by the bonfire, jump in the lake, last minute fun type of girl. Have a design challenge?  I'm in!

I believe in living life to the fullest and enjoying the chaos each day has to offer.
