Rock Paper Scissors (RPS) is a custom invitation and paper goods shop with a sweet spot for letterpress located in Charlottesville, Virginia on the historic downtown pedestrian mall. A community staple since 2002, RPS is the go-to destination for locals and visitors alike to find laugh-out-loud greeting cards, journals, stylish desk accessories, calendars, planners and modern gifts for every day.

When friends and daughters of respective small business owners, Dani Antol and Heather Haynie, learned that Rock Paper Scissors was for sale, they jumped at the chance to live out their paper dreams and purchased the shop in 2010. Together, the two began a new era for the beloved brand.

While keeping the art of letter writing, gift wrapping and sleek desk organization alive through a carefully curated selection from top brands around the country, the true magic at RPS can be found on the “Wall of Inspiration." 
Located on the back wall of the shop are countless samples of wedding invitations, save the dates, stationery, business cards, announcements, you name it, all customized by Charlottesville’s favorite paperistas.


As Charlottesville has grown to become a nationally-recognized wedding destination, so has Dani and Heather’s shared passion for working with couples to bring their wedding vision to life in the paper goods for their big day.
