Kevin, invitations are beautiful, thanks, Carol S

Dear Kevin,

Thank you so much for all your help with our wedding invitations. As the

mother of the bride (age 50 plus), I was a bit nervous about ordering them

over the internet. I felt that I needed some hands on help, in a typical

store, to do this right. However, my daughter loved your handmade paper,

spoke to you several times and convinced me that it would work out

fine. We even decided to do the cutting and assembling ourselves. It was

so easy and so much fun. However, the best part was how beautiful they

look. Thank you for responding via phone or e-mail when we had questions,

for guiding us along the way and for making such a lovely product. Paula



I want to add my thanks ... thank you so much for producing such lovely

paper for our wedding invitations!! They look tremendous. When we were

deciding on the invitations, I know my mom was very nervous about ordering

from someone she couldn't meet in person, so I really appreciate your

willingness to spend time on the phone with her, helping her feel

comfortable with the decision to purchase invitations from you. With your

instructions on tearing and assembling, putting the invitations together

was a snap. Thanks again! -- Elena B


We received the invitations on Friday. They look beautiful. Thank you!!


Hello Kevin,

Just wanted to say that the invitations look GREAT! And, thanks for

rushing our order so we could mail them a bit earlier.



I just wanted to thank you for all of your help with our invitation order.

The paper is beautiful, and everything came together perfectly. Everyone

we've shown the finished invitations to has loved them as well.

Thanks again to you and Of the Earth!

Everything has arrived here. Just a note to tell you that we have

really enjoyed your service, website, materials, etc. It all just came

I just received my order of your Hanah silk ribbon. I placed the order on Thursday morning and received it today. Wow! what great service. The ribbon is beautiful. I ordered seven different colors but really only needed the Midas Touch immediately. It will be beautiful on the liturgical stole I am making for my husband's Christmas gift. Thank you for a beautiful product and excellent service, I'm sure I will be doing business with you again sometime.

Dear Kevin,

I absolutely love my invitations. The hand made paper reminded me of the paper I used to make in grad school. My friends came over last night and helped me put them all together and I was able to get them in the mail this morning. Thanks again. Working with you was so easy I would recommend you to anyone!

I received my wedding invitations today! They are gorgeous - I am so

impressed with the paper. Your packaging is superb! I wanted to say

thank you again and will definitely write you once the invites are out

and will relay any good comments *wink* Have a wonderful day -



I wanted to thank you for all of your patience and assistance with our wedding invitations. They were beyond gorgeous and I had a wonderful time assembling them. Almost every guest commented on the invitations and thought they were very unique and beautiful. My sister is getting married next year and I gave her your information so hopefully she can enjoy picking out her invitations as much as I did. Thank you again.

Warm regards, Jennifer C

Hi Kevin,

I just want to thank you for working with me on my invitations. I received them and they are perfectly beautiful. Exactly what I envisioned. Thanks again.


Hi Kevin!

I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely LOVE how my invitations

have turned out. Any of my friends that have seen them have asked where

I found the paper, so you may have some future clients!

Thanks! Your products are wonderful!

Jessica P


I just received my order today. The paper is GORGEOUS!!! I'm so very pleased to have found your site. Other papers I sampled were not nearly as beautiful or well made. Thank you for saving my sister's shower invitations!!!


Kara M

Hi Kevin!

I was not in to sign for my UPS shipment from you until today. I just

opened our invitations and they are GORGEOUS! You did a wonderful job. I

only wish I had more occasions soon so that I could order more. Thanks

so much. I am a customer for life.

Take care,

Kim P

I ordered the paper for my wedding invitations last week and it arrived in two days! I assembled them last night and they look absolutely gorgeous. I just wanted to say a big thank you for your wonderful customer service and beautiful product.

hi, first the invitations were AMAZING. my girlfriends and i actually had a

good time putting them was no trouble at all.

second, do you all do place cards and thank you's? i couldn't find it on

the website anywhere.

when you have a sec.



Once again I would like to thank you for my most unique wedding invitations!! I just finished with them and I could not be more pleased!! I realize that the 1" stickers to seal the small red verbena flowers on the envelope is the norm and I thought you might be interested in knowing that the 2" stickers are plenty big enough to use the remnant of the ferns with the flowers when sealing the envelopes. The addition of the fern to the flowers on the envelope are absolutely beautiful!! What an extra added touch!! My family and friends have said that my (your) invitations are the most beautiful they have ever seen!! In my profession as a beautician, I service many clients that are potential brides and I will recommend your company to all !! It has been a pleasure doing business with you and your company!!

Blessings to you and yours,

Melissa K

Good morning Mr. Kevin Graham and company,

My name is Melissa Kraemer. I received my invitations on Monday, April 11. They are absolutely, without a doubt, the most exquisite invitations I have ever seen!! They are far beyond any expectations a bride might have for inviting her family and friends to witness her wedding celebration. Your company's unique talent and craftsmanship have been a blessing to me!! I could not be more pleased with your service!! Thank you!! I pray your business continues to prosper and bless many others like myself!!

Blessed by "Of The Earth",

Melissa and Brad

P.S. Please feel free to use my testimony!!


I just wanted to drop you a note and tell you how much

we love the invitations. They are even more beautiful

than I expected! Thanks again, you do great work!

Dear Kevin,

We want to thank you for our awesome wedding invitations. The seeded paper was not only beautiful to look at now, but will be a continued reminder of our day when the flowers bloom. The fern attachment was the perfect unique choice. Our friends and relatives love them as much as we do! From start to finish you have been so helpful. Thank you for sharing your talents and helping us create a wonderful invitation that will not be forgotten.

Michael & Nancy

Got it today and it is even more beautiful in real life than on the screen. Very high quality paper and thank you so much. I may be ordering some of the botanical attachments soon.


Hi Kevin!

I just wanted to let you know that I got my package today…………the paper (and everything else) was AEWSOME!!!!!!!!! I will be ordering more for sure, thanks again!

Sarah S

Hi Kevin,

Just wanted to let you know that we received our order and are very happy with it. The paper looks so beautiful! There was a bit of excitement actually getting the package - my town had the poor planning sense to name one street Cedar Avenue (my street) and another Cedar Lane. Despite the package being clearly labeled for Cedar Avenue, UPS tried to deliver it to Cedar Lane. After much panicking and much time on the phone with UPS, we wound up picking up the package ourselves at the UPS center late on Tuesday night. It was quite an adventure...

At any rate, thanks again for the amazing job you did on the order. I will be in contact again in a few weeks to let you know about using the remainder of our paper for seating cards.


Hi Kevin,

Thanks again so much for all of your help with our invitation, place card, and thank you note orders. We have gotten so many compliments on the paper and you were always so helpful!

Thanks so much!

Sheila R
