Dear Kevin,
I received my invitations a few months ago. They are beautiful. Thank you for helping with the wording and doing such a wonderful job with them. The directions for construction were easy to understand and every single invitation turned out as expected. And the paper is gorgeous...
Thanks for everything,
Erin R
Hello Kevin,
I just wanted to let you know, that I received the additional flower stickers. Thanks very much.
I also wanted to tell you that I got an amazing amount of compliments for the beautiful and original invitations. Everybody, especially my folks in Germany, loved them.
Thanks for all your help!

The order arrived yesterday, and we rushed to assemble one of the them. They look beautiful. It was wonderful doing business with you, and I am sure that everyone receiving an invitation will comment on how unique and great they look.

Thanks so much!

I am a recent customer of yours having ordered invitations for my wedding a couple of months ago. Both my mom and I have noticed that we are getting sooooo many people commenting and complimenting us on our person even remarked that she loved the font we used! Anyway, my mom mentioned it cause she thought it was so unusual and I just wanted to share that with you. I was sooo absolutely pleased with the end result and I agree, they were beautiful! If ever you need a customer testimonial or reference, I'd be more than happy to oblige. Thanx again for your beautiful work and I will surely recommend you to others!

Hi Kevin,
I never did write and tell you how happy we are with our invitations. They are beautiful and we love them! Thank you! My only suggestion would be for you to give ideas of how much misty can be used on each. I was scrimping along until I realized that I had only used half of it, with only a few invitations left. I ended up using a bit more than half and even went back and added more to some of the invites assembled first. Does that make sense? I just didn't want to run out, then realized that I definitely wouldn't run out!
Anyway, thanks for everything.
Amy N and David Li
Just wanted to say how much we loved our invitations. We have gotten so many compliments since they have gone out. I think people really appreciate getting something a little different from your everyday wedding invitation. Anyway, I wanted to ask if you could recommend a pen that would be best to use on the guestbook we ordered. Thank you for all your help!


Hi Kevin --
My invitations arrived while I was out of town last week -- they're just beautiful! Exactly what I was hoping for and more :)
As soon as I start receiving responses, I'll be in touch again to have place cards printed with the remaining paper.
Thanks again for everything -- since my wedding is out of town, I've been making all arrangements long distance, and I must say, the invitations have been the easiest part of the planning by far :)


Our wedding was awesome Nov 1 with the beautiful invitations AND the programs in our special paper. SO many wonderful comments about both! Thanks so much! Sharon and Mikell
Hey, just wanted you to know, the invitations looked great... and we used the extra paper for programs and for small mattes for pictures in our thank you piece of your beautiful paper went unused!!!

Hi Kevin,
I got the package yesterday. Everything arrived in perfect condition. The paper assortment is perfect for our wedding announcements. Thanks again for the prompt and courteous service. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

Words cannot express how fond I am of the invitations you made for our wedding. They are absolutely breathtaking! Be assured that I will refer you to each and every one of my friends and family members when it is their time to wed.

Many Thanks,

Hi Kevin. I'm sorry I'm so slow, but I just wanted to let you know that we received the 2nd batch of paper and LOVE it -- it's perfect. The invitations were a huge hit. We really appreciate your flexibility and extra work to get us paper that we felt great about sending out.

Thanks again, Megan & Joel

PS -- I didn't see an invitation like this on your website, but this is what we did and people seem to really like it: we made a 6x6 invitation with a vellum overlay, but we ripped the paper w/ an extra 2 in. on the bottom of each invitation. then we folded the extra 2 in. flap around to the back and glued the edges to make a 'pocket' for all of the enclosures. it's nice b/c the enclosures aren't flying all over the place in the envelope. just thought you might be interested...

Sorry I haven't been able send a message of thanks.
I've received the invitations and THANK YOU SO MUCH everything's wonderful and precisely how you described it. We are very happy with the outcome and would happily send more business your way as well as work with you in future events.
You were outstanding help from the very beginning.
Again, Thank you for everything!

Hi Kevin,
I received the invitations last week and they're beautiful! You do excellent work and I couldn't ask for better invitations. Thanks so much!!

I have returned from Mexico, and our 'invitation assembly' operation. Everything went incredibly smoothly, and the invitations are absolutely beautiful! We all love the uniqueness of the paper, and everyone has remarked about how the recipients of the invitations will want to keep them as a memento because they are so lovely. The paper tearing was a bit time-consuming, but actually very easy. And the final assembly was extremely simple, thanks to the punching template guide! It took 3 of us less than 2 hours to assemble all of the invitations.
Thank you again for all of your help and suggestions. I have recommended your website already to so many people. It truly is one of the best websites I have ever visited....clear, concise, helpful, easy to use, and loaded with useful information...not to mention visually inviting.
Again, it has been a pleasure!
Kathy C
Hi Kevin,
I wanted to let you know how pleased Andrew & I were about the invitations! The paper is even more beautiful than we expected!! Thank you so much. We did a mock-up yesterday and it went pretty well, except I'm not sure we have the tearing part down yet. We didn't get a bone folder, so I think we'll actually pick one up - I think it might help making the crease. But the final product is really gorgeous. We have lots of time to put them together before sending them out, so I'll probably contact you with more questions later, but wanted to let you know we received them and are really excited about your great product!

Our wedding has come and gone, and i just remembered that we never thanked you. The wedding invitations you made us were so beautiful. They really were beyond our expectations. We received many compliments on them.
Best of luck to you in your business. We will refer folks to you for their special paper needs.
I've been so busy that I haven't had a chance to let you know that the
replacement vellums looked great. We've received most of the RSVP cards
back, and almost everyone wrote a note complimenting us on the invitations.
Thank you for your wonderful product and for all your extra attention.
I've recommended you to anyone who would listen!

Dear Kevin,
Just wanted to let you know that the invitations arrived ahead of schedule,
and they look great!! Thanks so much for your help with them.

Hi Kevin,
I just wanted to tell you that I received my invitations today and they are so beautiful. Thank you so much! I can not wait to put them together. I was wondering if you could give me some pointers on tearing the paper and using the folder tool I got.
Jamie N
Dear Kevin,
Thank you so much for your promptness! The invitations are so gorgeous; we couldn't be more pleased! It was great fun constructing them and the handmade paper is lovely to work with! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Thanks again!

I would like to thank you for the beautiful paper you made for my wedding invitations. Thank you for putting the sample invitations and instructions on your website. My invitations and announcements turned out beautifully, and much more affordable than similiar invitations I have seen. I mailed them out last week and guests have been calling and emailing my to say that the invitations are beautiful. I have even been told I should go into business making invitations:). I told them I wouldn't have been able to do it without your paper and website. Thank you so much!

Thanks so much for the beautiful work you and your wife did to make our
invitations and our guest book-- they arrived on time, and they're gorgeous,
perfect- everything we had been searching high and low for. We're really
glad you're in business, and we wish you much continued success.

You have been dealing with my fiancé Eatherley Hood. I am Owen Schultz.
Thanks so much for the beautiful invites. Nearly every person that has
received one has commented on how beautiful they are. You guys have
really got a good thing going.



The invites came on Friday. Thanks so much. That was very thoughtful of you to add the stickers and fern parts. You think of everything. We are still getting compliments daily on the invites, and most of the reply cards that come back have something written on them about how wonderful the invites are. if only our wedding lives up to your invites! We have passed on your website to several others that want to use your paper. I hope they tell you they heard about you through us. Thanks again. We'd be glad to write another testimonial for you!
