Our Story

In the beginning…

Upon leaving the advertising business and after creating custom gifts in her garage for several years prior, Melinda Cantor launched Only You Gifts in Islip, NY in 1998. Since its opening, Only You has produced thousands of custom invitations and unique engraved gifts, as well as and corporate promotional items for events such as births, christenings, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, holidays, and more.  However, the custom invitation portion of the business needed more room to flourish as the clients demanded more.


In 2017, Melinda Cantor Designs in Bohemia became the offspring of Only You focusing primarily on the business of printing and designing custom invitations/stationery. November 2020, the showroom will be relocated to Stony Brook and ready with a new look for visitors in the new year.

Melinda Cantor Designs is a boutique stationery showroom/studio that specializes in the design and printing of high quality wedding invitations and day-of-event accessories. Offering both ready-to-order invitations and custom designed suites.

Email us and let us know about your big event.  We look forward to talking with you!



Melinda, owner/designer and stationery expert is thrilled to be heading into her 22nd year in business creating beautiful stationery.
