Thank you so much for the easy and quick order! We love the paper and the

invitations turned out gorgeous! It was so nice to be able to have an

invitation that feels unique compared to all of those cookie cutter generic


Thanks again!


Dear Kevin--

I just wanted to thank you for the gorgeous invitations! Our wedding was last Saturday & nobody left without complimenting us on our choice of invitations--many said they didn't want to open them for fear of ruining them! We ordered the paper with wildflower seeds and were thrilled to hear that flowers were growing all over the world (from Canada to Kenya) in honor of our union. Even the church site where our ceremony was performed planted them! It was the perfect touch!

I wanted to make one suggestion... I used the bifold template & then used a wax seal to close it. I thought it might be to your advantage if you sold the sealing wax & seals through your company, in addition to the sticker closures that you offer. They were very lovely, & I'd imagine that many would be interested in puchasing them. I bought the flexible wax that can be applied with a glue gun, which saved me a big headache. There was no problem sending the invitations through the mail in your recycled paper envelopes. I hope this is helpful to you!

Thanks again! I haven't found a better invitation site anywhere! We plan to order again through you the next time we have a big event!

Hi Kevin,

I just wanted to drop you a line thanking you again

for your beautiful invitations. Our order turned out

to be just the right size (just a couple left over

when all is said and done) and we received many, many

compliments on the paper.

Thanks again for all of your assistance in helping

make our event beautiful and special!


Dear Kevin,

I just wanted to say thank you for the excellent service. EVERYONE has loved their invitations. They came out so beautiful and unique. Our wedding is off to a good start so far...

Thanks again,


Just wanted to say thank you. Our wedding was over a year ago down here in Los Angeles and we still have family memebers who can recall how beautiful to invitations were.

As my wife's family from Mexico City would say, "mil gracias" or a thousand thanks.

Michael and Rebeca M

Hi Kevin,

gorgeous. Thank you so much, we couldn't be happier!

I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful and personalized job you did with our wedding invitations. I was very worried about finding a company on-line and trusting them with this important part of our wedding plans. You put my mind at ease with your immediate and prompt responses to my questions, and concerns. The website is so user friendly with the product pictures, the Excel price/order pages, and the how to do it yourself instructions.

We recieved so many compliments from our wedding guests on our invitations, and I must have given out your website to a dozen or more people. We really appreciate that there are good, honest true to their word company owners out there in the internet world.

Thanks again,






Dear Kevin,

I am sorry it took me a while to write you to tell you how much I love the invitations. I was so excited to take them out of the box and I immediately assembled one and sent it to my parents who love it. The invitations are gorgeous. Exactly what I envisioned. Thank you for making them so beautiful.

Will be in touch about programs, etc.!

Roberto and I are very pleased with the invitations. They turned out to be absolutely beautiful. Thanks so much.

Hi Kevin - just wanted to let you know that we got our invitations safe and

sound. They look great! Now for the unfun part, addressing them!

Best regards,


Well Kevin I had to tell you that I've gotten nothing but huge compliments on our wedding invite. I wanted to say thanks for your help! The invitations turned out exactly as I'd hoped they would. One of our friend's daughters, who is about 12, said they were "the coolest she'd ever seen." So that clinched it for me :)

Thanks again



Our wedding invitations arrived yesterday, and they are beautiful! They perfectly set the theme for our park wedding. Thank you so much for your creativity, and wonderful costumer service. If an event arrives that I want unique invitations or paper again, I will be in contact with you.

Hi Kevin,

I just wanted to drop a note and tell you how lovely the overstock paper you

picked out for me was, and how many compliments I got on my handmade (by you

folks, and by me!) invitations... I had a great time constructing them

myself and doing the lettering, and they turned out unique and prettier than

I could have ever envisioned... just perfect for our garden wedding last


So many thanks again, and I'll be dropping your name to everyone who asks!
Anne C

Have a great week!

Dear Kevin,

I just wanted to thank you once again for the ribbon order! I recieved it this afternoon and it is as I expected, perfect!

I will recommend your store to all of my friends and family. Thank you for your help and patience.

I will probably be needing more of the Hanah ribbon soon. I will call as soon as I know.


Lisa C


Thank you for the wonderful job you did with the invitations. They came out beautiful. We used gold wax and a Fleur de Lis stamp to seal the invitations before placing them in the inner envelope. Everyone has had wonderful compliments and I am thrilled with the final results!

Nice work.


Hi Kevin- I meant to email you after we got the invitations to tell you how WONDERFUL they are! Everyone who has received them has raved- thank you so much! I have even referred you to a couple of women I know who are getting married!

Thank you again,

Kathleen R
