I wanted to let you know that I received the reception maps last week.
Thank you for getting those out so quickly!

I just wanted to let you know that I'm absolutely thrilled with what you
have created! Thank you so very very much! You are truly a treasure!!
The paper is so beautiful I've decided against the blue card stock as
the bottom layer. Your paper, the vellum, and our picture all tied with
a ribbon is just perfect!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

I started ripping the paper this weekend. Got half of it done and was
pleasantly surprised with how well it went. I'm leaving the actual
assembly for an invite party I'm planning with my bridesmaids in
January--the whole process isn't going to be bad at all!! ;-) Wish us

AGAIN, thank you thank you thank you. I'm so completely happy that I was
referred to you!! You're wonderful!

Best regards,
Subj: THANKS!!!!

Hi Kevin...

We've had a flood of compliments come in about your invitations. Everyone
loves them - I've given you full credit and sent out your website address.
It is so weird being on this side and not seeing them - but that is life as
an expat.

Thank you again so much for getting this done on such short notice. I
appreciate it so much.

If there is ever anything I can do for you just let me know .

Again - many thanks.


We have gotten rave reviews on the invitations, Thank you!!!!!!! They are
so absolutely beautiful. And so unique. It's been so wonderful. THank

I've finally figured out the announcement numbers. We'll need 35 in Spanish
and 15 in English.... do you have enough paper for that? will there be any
paper left over? (we'd like to have some to use as a background for one of
our wedding portraits, if at all possible.)

So, I know i still owe you the spanish verbiage, i'll try to get that to you

I'll also take a crack at the English.

Again, I can't thank you enough for the gorgeous invitations. Everyone has
complimented them, and i never get tired of looking at them.

Thank you,
Kevin we just finished up preparing our invitations. It was so easy and
actually quite fun. They look marvelous!! We just love them and really
appreciate your effort in getting everything to us in just a few weeks. You
don't get great service like that in Seattle these days. Thanks so much!

Hi Kevin:

I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous wedding invitations. As you
predicted, the response about them was overwhelming! I really appreciate
all of you help and suggestions. If you ever need a reference, let me know.

I managed to save one sheet of paper that I'm going to use as the matting
around our wedding photo.

Thanks again!!!

Just wanted to let you know that we received our invitations and they are
absolutely beautiful! I can't wait to send them out.

Hi Kevin -

Just wanted to send you our thanks for doing such a nice job on
Christie/Oliver's wedding invitations. Everyone thought that they were
lovely and very special. The programs also turned out well - using the same
type paper for the covers.

Christie and Oliver were especially pleased with the results of both the
invitation and the program.

Thanks again. Judy F

Hi Kevin!

Well the deed is done! Sean and I were married Aug 21st on a beautiful,
sunny day at the Hope Island Inn on Fidalgo Island (we got really lucky with
the weather, didn't we?) Everything went beautifully and smooth, and all of
our family & friends had a great time and raved about the beauty of the
Northwest...exactly what we were hoping to share with them!

We're back in New England now (missing Washington ever more), and I just
wanted to take a moment to thank you again for the great job you did with
our invitations. We received so much positive feedback from many family &
friends about how beautiful and special our invitations looked. Even those
who were unable to attend expressed great regret for missing out, especially
when they saw the beautiful, natural, a-traditional really set the tone for our wedding

So thanks again Kevin! Take care, Beky P

I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how much I loved the
way the wedding invitations turned out! After your instructions, they were
pretty simple to put together. We had an assembly line going and finished
up all 190 in about three evenings. We've had lots of compliments on both
the invitations and the RSVP cards. You guys really do beautiful work!

Thanks again,
Tracy S

The invitations have arrived safely, and they are beautiful! The paper is gorgeous (and I say this from an artistic viewpoint; we women here are all artists or designers of some description) and we couldn't have expected a nicer job graphically anywhere. We appreciate such lovely and prompt work. Thanks very much.
