Hi Kevin:

I just got the invitations today and am delighted about the quality and style of them. I was nervous about not getting to see a proof of the handmade paper with the rest of the design work, but I feel a lot better now that I've seen it. I just wanted to thank you and your colleagues for the beautiful craftsmanship and service.

Regards, Veronica

Jennifer: I received my order today and truly appreciate all the extra help you and Mike gave me to make my invitations so perfect! I can't believe that they are even nicer than I thought they would be. Your hand holding help and explaination of everything is a rare gift and I am so glad I had the extra help from you. Again thank you for everything!

Hi Kevin,
Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that we received our seeded paper and supplies from you about a month ago. We had so much fun assembling our wedding invitations, and everyone loved them! Your packaging and shipping were excellent and very prompt. Thank you for the great service and very wonderful products!

Good Morning,

Just wanted to take the time to let you know, your handmade paper is "awesome". It was just perfect and so was your prompt service. My experience w/your company was great, and I will pass it on.

Thanks again,Cheryl

Hi, I just recently ordered a few sheets of your wildflower seed paper. I received them today and just wanted to compliment on the quality of them. I am always weary of ordering from the internet as you never know what you will receive. I am very happy with my order, the products you offer & the prices. I am getting married next July and will definitely be placing more orders throughout the upcoming year.



Hi Kevin. Got the order in the mail yesterday. Just wanted to thank you again. They're beautiful!



I just wanted to send my sincere appreciation to you and your company for the great service that I received while ordering my "eco-friendly" wedding invitations to go along with our "green wedding". You have been so helpful and the ordering process was so simple. I just received them via UPS and they are double boxed to protect them, which is great! They are amazingly beautiful - much more than I expected. I can't thank you enough and will tell everyone I know about your company. I plan to use you again for any of my paper needs. Our guests will be delighted to know that they can take a piece of our wedding home to plant and grow and to think of our special day.

Keep up the fantastic work!

Thank you,

Beth & Ryan

this is a too long delayed e-mail. received the wedding invitations we ordered and couldn't be more delighted. they are simple and elegant just as we hoped. the paper is divine and will be the perfect first glimpse into what will be a truly lovely occassion. thanks for starting us off right!!!

Just wanted to let you know that I got the package on 10/17 as you said I would.

I also wanted to express how wonderful they look and how happy I am to have ordered my wedding invitations from you. My fiancee and I absolutely love them! They look better than we expected.

Thanks so much!



I just received my invitations in the mail today, and I just had to tell you that they are absolutely gorgeous and they could not be more perfect. It's exactly what I wanted! Thank you for making this important part of my wedding so beautiful.


Dear Kevin and Valerie,

Thank you so much for our seedy paper invitations, they managed to clear UK customs and arrive on time for us to put them together last weekend as planned.

We think they are gorgeous and we have already received many compliments from recipients. It looks like there is going to be a seed planting/paper growing race with guests aiming to wear a cosmos flower on our wedding day!

Thank you again for all your help and patience.

Best wishes

Christine and Sean

P.S. FYI. it cost us an additional 57 pounds in UK taxes/handling fees once the paper had arrived in England - just in case you get any additional orders from this side of the Atlantic which we hope you do. C.


I just received my order and wanted to say how happy I am with everything. It was shipped to me sooner than I expected and was very carefully packaged. I love the RSVP postcards. I was a little weary of using them, but they still look very classy! And the vellum paper was just as I hoped and will look great over our engagement photo!

Thank you for the care put into my order.

Hi Kevin,

I haven't had the chance to thank you for all of your help with our invitations, so thank you. The invitation are beautiful, we absolutely love them. Since you were so helpful before I was hoping you could be of assistance to us again. I want to order some thank you notes that are the same style as our invitations. I saw the ones on the website but I was hoping for something a bit more customized. I don't want them to day "thank you" on the front. I was thinking about a monogram of both of our initials(last name beings with L and then L for me and J for my fiance) Just a thought, any other ideas? What are some other designs that you have seen? Please let me know as I would like to order them soon. I have included my mom on this email because she has offered to help out as well. 3 head are better than 2, right? Anyway, thanks again for all of your help and I look forward to working with you again.

Take care,


I have just finished putting together the invitations we received and want to thankyou so much for the beautifulhandmade paper. The dried fern spears give it just the extra touch we wanted, as well as, the natural envelopes and stickers! We appreciate your work and presentation. I have truly enjoyed the time spent with these touches of nature and know that all those that receive these invitations will appreciate them as well. Sincerely, Leslie


Thank you so much! The invitations are beautiful! I really couldn't be happier with your company, just made everything so easy.

Now only if you were a little closer to NY..... I believe I have to plant a whole forest on our land to off set the co2 emissions!

Thank you again, and you can plan on our business in the future!



I received my invitations.

They are beautiful, Exactly what I wanted!

Thank you so much

for the lovely work and no stress.

Happy Holidays.



Hi Valerie & Kevin,

We have already received the order. You guys are very professional and we appreciate all your help and the information provided.

Thanks very much.


Hi Kevin,

I just wanted to let you know that I received the paper order yesterday bad weather in the northeast delayed its arrival, but I am so pleased to see it! It is so beautiful, and truly the pictures on the web page do not do it justice. And it is such good strong quality it is much sturdier than paper that I have worked with before for invitations.

As we finish assembling, would you like me to forward you a finished invitation?

Thank you and good luck with your company! I will surely recommend you to anyone looking for handmade paper. Also, have you considered listing with or That might be a good way to get your name out even more.

Take care,



I wanted to thank you for your help last week. You walked me through your website, helped me find beautiful pink flower seed paper and shipped it quickly. My friends and I were able to get 775 hearts cut out for the memorial service held on Saturday. They were positively beautiful and the family truly appreciated them.

Hello Kevin,

The invitations arrived and they are beautiful!

Thank you so much,

Mary Ann

I just received my invitations, and finished putting them together. They are so beautiful! Absolutely perfect! I couldn't be happier! Next time anyone I know gets engaged, I'll be sure to mention your company to them! Thank you so much!




Thanks for responding so quickly I assumed it was simply a shipping error that delayed the guest book. My wedding is not for another month so we still have time. Though I am so eager to see how the book turns out with the invitations being so beautiful I can only imagine how the book will look. Please do display our invitation on your website. We have no objections at all. In fact I have been showing them off to everyone I know, The responses are all the same , they're gorgeous, where did you find them, they did such a wonderful job, I honestly can't pack all the complements I've been receiving about them in this email. So please continue to display it you did such beautiful work I want everyone to see them !

Thank You again to all of your staff



Hi Kevin

Look forward to hearing from you.

To Whom It May Concern,

I was wholly impressed: from the reception of supplies (packaged with TLC) and the final look of the invitations once they were put together. I received so many compliments from the invitations. One of our guests even professionally framed the invitation as a gift to us. You have made the invitation process affordable yet provided something beautiful and memorable. Thank you so much!
