Hello Kevin,

I got the invitations this past Monday and didn't get a chance to email you earlier. We LOVE THEM!!!!!! They are simply beautiful. Thank you for all of your help and suggestions. I do have one complaint...I wish I would have ordered a larger size! (By the way I choose to blame you because you know how wonderful they are...Just kidding)

Anyway... thank you so much. We are very, very happy,

Dona and Wes.


Thank you, thank you, thank you! They look beautiful, I have approved on line, and we are truly 100% ready to go. No more changes, I promise!! Please go ahead and charge my card, and let me know if there are any problems with the address or billing.

Kevin, again, I thank you. You have been nothing short of wonderful in this process – gracious, patient, timely. I could not have asked for a better experience.

Thank you! (I would love to add comments to your website for future customers ….)

Everything had gone just as planned last Saturday! There weren't any problems with shipping or anything! The bride and her family and I had worked well as a team construdcting all of the invitations. We had a blast. The papers/ vellum turned out better than I thought they would. I absolutely love the homemade feel, but yet, very sophisticated look of the invitations. Thank you, Kevin, for having such a wonderful company! The product is beautiful and your handling of our problems was outstanding. Thank you for absorbing so much of our stress and fixing it so well. Blessings to you and to your wonderful company! I am so glad I had found you guys!



Thanks, Kevin, for everything. Blessings to you for accommodating us. I do not think there are many good businesses like yours. Our order was demanding and error-filled, yet, you came through with flying colors. I so appreciate you! Thank you! I'm going to tell everyone about you! And oh, by the way, I love the paper and the fonts for the vellum and everything! You guys are wonderful



Thank you, Kevin. As you can see by the wording on my invitations, my husband passed away just recently, and the invitations are for his memorial. Your professionalism and cooperation were so helpful at this time. I will not forget you and your wonderful company.



We received the wedding invitations last night and they are perfect!

Exactly what we expected and hoped for -- great job!

We will highly recommend Of The Earth to friends, especially all the yet-to-be-married attendees at the upcoming wedding.

Thanks again,

Hi Kevin: I just wanted to extend my thanks for all of your work. Our wedding invitations arrived and we think they are wonderful! We have gotten so much positive feedback on our seeded paper option. Everything was lovely. I really was totally impressed and beyond satisfied with the entire process for placing and arranging my order. Your responses were always prompt and your suggestions were incredibly helpful in this process.

Thanks again for contributing to our special day!

GREAT SERVICE!!!! Already shipped? THATS FANTASTIC!!! Thank you very much!

I appreciate the ease of your website! Thank you. I also greatly appreciate the use of paypal...I am always more likely to buy things when I don't have to find my purse and wallet. Also I like that your shipping charges were reasonable.

Thank you so much.

Extremely helpful!!!
My compliments to those receiving calls with questions about products and online ordering. The staff could not have been more supportive or helpful. Thanks so much
Loved the variety of supplies and beautiful papers available!!!

I love your papers! They are so beautiful-- I have done the complete DIY route from tearing the large wildflower seeded lotka papers to tying everything up with the eco-twist ribbon and my wedding invitations look so beautiful (and expensive- but they weren't!). Thank you for offering a first rate product at the best prices around.

Hi Kevin, I wanted to thank you for your help in getting the sapphire ribbon to me so quickly....amazing!!!! Take care, Robin

It is my pleasure! I do agree with you, however, and my daughter said the same....the website could be a little easier to navigate.

Having said that, we love your items and I intend to make other purchases.

Keep up the good work!


I am very grateful to your staff, especially to you and to Mike Vincent. He answered my many emails promptly and was very patient with me. You have been very helpful to me navigating the website and I'm thrilled to do business with your company

I believe I just spoke with Emma (hope that is her name) . She , also, was a pleasure to deal with.

great service, shipping and product!Thanks

Hi Emma,

I ended up reprinting the announcement and using the custom dyed ribbon---it came out gorgeous! My client just LOVED the ribbon and the announcement! Thank you!! Here are a few picture of the announcement.

Looking forward to working with you again!--Liz

Received my beautiful paper today! It's not often I run across a company that's customer service is as good as it's product. Thank you!

Jodi G

Great Site!! I love how easy it is to find what I'm looking for & LOVE all the different size ribbon options. Thank you!! and I'll definitely be back!!
Easy Easy Easy...

I used your handmade paper and envelopes to to my wedding inviations. I love you products and cannot wait to have more projects buy more!

In my search for wording for our DIY wedding invitations, I came across your website. Unfortunately, we have already purchased our supplies! But, I felt like I should thank you for putting up a terrific website and for your obvious business ethic. I will recommend your product whenever the opportunity arises!

Hello Emma,

We love the cards! They were here only 5 minutes before we started placing them in the wine club shipment boxes and shipped out around the country. I can’t wait to take one home and plant it.

Thank you for all your great customer service throughout the whole process, including helping me with what to order. I am sorry that it took me so long to get back to you with my very positive feedback. We are in a crazy time in Sonoma County Wine Country with Barrel Tasting Weekends, which followed my busy Wine Club shipment and party week.

Best regards,

Dear Kevin and Laurie

I am planning my wedding wanted to find a way to make special invites for it.

I found your web-site yesterday.

I phoned to ask questions and happened to get Emma I must say she has been amazing ! She is very knowledgeable, patient, and an expert at every aspect of your business. I don’t usually make mention of a job well done unless it is way above average. She is just that. I wanted to let you both know how lucky you are to have her.

I also look forward to giving you lots of business, not only with my wedding but with anything else I can send your way !

Hi Kevin,

The pleasure was all ours...the invitations were lovely and everything went so very well.

Thanks again!


Dear Mike, Kevin, Emma,

We got our invitations on Tuesday, as expected, and I just wanted to let you all know that they were beautiful and we absolutely LOVED them. Thanks very much for all of your help.

Mike, you especially made what seemed to be a complicated process much easier with your wonderful customer service via phone. I was quite intimidated by the website and all of its options but you helped me to narrow it down and get exactly what I was looking for. Thanks to all of you for a great experience!

Now how about party favors...any suggestions?

Thanks again very much?

-B. Brown and G. Lisi

I am so happy to have found this site! I will be using it in the future!

Hi Emma – just wanted to let you know that our flyers are a big hit at the trade shows. We primarily market to folks who pursue sustainable practices, so they really appreciate them! Several people asked where I got the paper and I gave them your company name.

Great Experience.....

Hello Kevin and everyone else at Of the Earth,

I received your package on Saturday, and everything was fantastic. I love your products (lotka paper, natural seeded envelopes, etc...), and it got here so fast and in such great shape! Thanks for taking such great care and for carrying such great products at really reasonable prices. You have all my business from here on out (and I'm about to make wedding invitations!).

Thanks again!

Warm Regards,

Ashley M

Hello Mike and Kevin,

We received our wedding items on Monday and are thrilled with everything!! The wedding invitations are absolutely beautiful. Mike thank you so much for your time, patience, and advice. We have had a wonderful experience with your company and plan on telling all our engaged friends about your products. We did notice 8 yards of sequoia eco-twist was included with our items but I'm not sure what item this should be used with...clarification would be greatly appreciated :)

Thank you again for all your efforts,

Natalie R
