Smarty Sponsor: Goslen Printing

By Katie M

It’s not every day you hear about a family-owned company that’s been in business for more than 135 years in the Triad. But when you do, you know it must be doing something right. Well, Smarty Sponsor Goslen Printing does more than just something right – it does everything top notch.

If you are ever looking to print invitations, customized note cards, announcements, posters, programs, church bulletins, or newsletters (and chances are good you will at some point in your life as a mom), you need to consider Winston-Salem-based Goslen Printing. Not only do they have more than a century of experience, but their staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and focused on getting your job done right and on time.

And their prices are good too! But according to Mark Goslen, a fourth-generation Goslen and president of Goslen Printing (whose daughters, Gianna and Alex, are pictured left to right with their dog Zeus) it’s more than just the price. "It’s all about quality product, relationships and superior service. That’s what we hang our hat on.”

Goslen Printing can help take you through every step of your project – from designing your job to selecting the right papers to printing (from high-end offset and digital to Xeroxing and color copying) and bindery. It’s a full service shop, and it’s also connected to Invitations Only, an adorable shop specializing in personalized stationery, note cards and unique gifts. In fact, Mark’s wife Robyn, who joined the company in 1996, is co-owner with Mary Reynolds of Invitations Only.

I’ve been a big fan of Invitations Only ever since I moved to the Triad. Robyn helped me design and print party invitations a few years ago, and her genuine dedication and helpfulness made a lasting impression. I always like to pop in to the store to check out what they have in stock for gift and stationery ideas. And I just found out that you can order many of their custom products online at You can’t beat the selection of products, and once you customize your message you can review your order online. Place your order and they’ll ship it to you within three business days!

Little did I know that a few years later we would team up with Goslen Printing on a project for Triad Smarty Pants (they printed our super cute TSP postcards!). And not surprisingly, the same level of professionalism, dedication and friendliness shined through yet again. We have really enjoyed working with Mark and his team.

There are a lot of milestones to celebrate as moms, and no one can help you do it better than Goslen Printing. I encourage you to check out all they have to offer with your next printing project. And while you are out there, stop in to Invitations Only too. Trust me, you won’t come home empty-handed (and you’ll be happy about that!).

Goslen Printing and Invitations Only are both located at 3301 Healy Drive in Winston-Salem. Their phone is 336-768-5775, and their store hours are Monday – Friday 8 am to 4 pm.

I have worked with Mark Goslen and his staff for printing needs, and also worked with Robin at Invitations Only numerous times. They are the most welcoming, friendly people you will meet. I have always been happy with the final product on everything I have purchased. And I love Invitations Only for many gift ideas!!!

Ditto Rachel's comments above. I always use Invitations Only when I am hosting an event and I have my invites printed there. I have ordered many personalized stationary items from them as well as holiday cards. Everyone on staff is extremely helpful and friendly.

We use Goslen to print everything (letterhead, envelopes, business cards,etc.) for our business and have always been impressed by their professionalism and quality end product. They are great to work with!

I cannot say enough good things about Invitations Only. They have a helpful, friendly staff, lots of selection and outstanding customer service.

Last fall, I was looking for an invitation I found in another store (they didn't have enough and wouldn't reorder) and called stores across the state trying to find it to no avail. Invitations Only didn't have it in stock either, but they offered to order it from the vendor for me. They called first thing on Monday and by Monday afternoon, my order was placed.

Store hours aren't the most convenient but they are willing to help you get exactly what you need. They will even provide proofs and options so you don't have to come in! I was thoroughly satisfied with my experience at Invitations Only!!
