I received the invitations last night and all I can say is "THERE GREAT!!!!" Everything looks beautiful! My fiance loved how we got something so nice and didn't have to sit in some store and look through books and books of invitations.
We put one together last night and they look beautiful. Thank you soooo much.
We haven't run into any problems, but if we do I'll give you a call.
I was a bit nervous doing something like this over the internet with someone I never met, but you really put my mind and ease and a product that I will cherish forever.
Thank you again,

I wanted to send you a note to thank you for working with us on our wedding invitations. As soon as our friends starting receiving them, they called to say how beautiful they are! Everyone is quite impressed and so are we. They're unlike anything else we looked at in stationery shops and they have such a wonderful simplistic beauty. We could not be any happier with our invitations. I will definitely recommend you to everyone I know!
Thanks so much,
Hi Kevin,
I just wanted to pass on a belated and additional thanks for helping Jenny and I with our wedding invitations. They were a big hit, and we were very pleased that they were a unique and personal expression for us.
Keep up the good work...
Thank you so much for the beautiful wedding invitations! They are
gorgeous, and we are very pleased. The website does not do justice to
your work. I am so happy we chose your company to make our wedding
invitation. You did a wonderful job. We are very excited to share them
with our friends and family.
Thank you for an outstanding job!

Thank-you for all your help and attention to detail. The invitations arrived yesterday and look wonderful. Your website was the most user friendly website I found, and you have been more than helpful. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you.

We received our wedding invitations earlier this week. They are BEAUTIFUL!
- even better than I expected! I can wait to print them and assemble them.

I just wanted to thank you for everything - we are thoroughly satisfied, and
I have told everyone about your website!

Many Thanks,
Dana Erwin
We received the invitations and the are absolutely beautiful. Thanks so much for all of your help. I was wondering how many sheets of our paper you have left. I was thinking about purchasing the rest of them for the rest of our thank you cards. Can you explain to me how I should rip the paper to make thank yous fit into the small envelopes. Once again, thanks for everything the invitations are just what we wanted. Everyone that we talk to about them says how beautiful they are.
Thanks, Shelbey Reid
Hello Kevin,

I received my paper right on time, the exact day you told me it would arrrive and it looks GREAT!!!!! I just wanted to send a note letting you know how pleased I was with the service I received from you and your company. I have recommended your company to many friends and I believe you will be hearing from one of them later this year for a wedding her son has coming up.

Thank you very much and if there comes another occasion where I can use your paper I will surely be contacting you & I will definitly be recommending you to anyone I hear in need of special paper.

Dear Kevin and Lori,
I want to thank you for doing what you do! I'm not sure I can cover all of the kudos due you in one letter but I'll try:
Lori's paper is gorgeous! We got compliments from many of our guests - even bachelor types whom I wouldn't imagine even noticing... It was a pleasure for both of us to send out such high quality and aesthetic invitations and announcements to our friends and relatives. And, judging from the responses we got, they were a pleasure to receive.
Your customer service is just awesome! We wanted some custom sizing on the vellum and I also had some nit-picky requests that Kevin just simply handled. We got exactly what we wanted, delivered exactly when and as promised. Kevin's availability and ability to communicate made it a delight to work with him. I never had to wait or wonder and never once felt like I didn't know what was going on. (This is important - "nervosa bridal" can get pretty bad sometimes!)
Another major plus-point is that your website is not only beautiful to look at, but really well designed and very easy to use. As I am not local to you in Seattle, but rather an Internet customer based in Los Angeles, I want all of your customers to know that working with you at a distance and using the Internet to do business with you could not have been easier! Your work and products are even better than as represented!
You are very highly recommended in my book and I hope you are flooded with as much business as you want! Your products are art in the purest sense and they create joy in those who receive them - I think spreading that around is a pretty good thing!
Thank you both so much for doing what you do and helping to make our wedding very special.
Jody and Ray McKay
I wanted to write to let you know how pleased with all are with the invitations. They are absolutely beautiful, and very unique! Doing our order using the web simplified things for us. We were all able to participate in the process despite the fact the bride is at Penn State in grad school, the groom is in DC, and the mother of the bride is in Virginia. Your prompt email responses to all our questions made the experience very personal.
Thanks again for all your help. We are very excited about the invitations and can't wait to share them with our guests!
Jeanne Mitcho

I just wanted to say that I was very happy with my wedding invitations! We
have received numerous compliments on how unique, warm, and beautiful they
are. Sorry it has taken so long for me to get this message out to you.


Jennifer Kashuba
Thank you--by the way, they're a big hit! Another satisfied customer.

Hi Kevin -

It was so exciting to come back from Kentucky yesterday and have the invitations waiting for me. Lenny was so good and waited until I got back. It was so exciting opening the box together. They are beautiful!!!! I am so happy with my choices. Thank you sooooooo much. I know that our guests will be very impressed.

Best Regards,
Thank you so much for the GORGEOUS invitation paper - it is truly stunning. I can't wait to send them out in the next 2 weeks, and get people's reactions to them. The people who I've shown so far have said such things as "They are the most beautiful I've ever seen!", and I'd have to agree. Ian and I thank you so much for all your hard work and patience.
Emily Compson and Ian Trenbeath
I've told all my friends about you, and recommend you to all the other brides who ask about my stunning invites on bulletin boards. I think one bride just placed her order with you because she saw my invites!!
Dear Kevin, I am madly addressing invitations, and as I was getting ready to stuff the first envelope, it occurred to me is there a correct way to fold the information sheet? Amy had no ideas on this so I'm asking you to share your expertise. I'll look forward to your reply. Incidentally, the invitations, etc. all look wonderful. I am so glad Amy choose to work with you for this wedding. Mary
Hi Kevin,
Just to let you know.... I have all the invitation ready to mail in the morning and I am very happy with them. I wanted to let you know that I really appreciate all that you have done and I will recommend you to anyone that is in need of your services.....Thanks again ! ! !
Hi...I just received my order that i placed with you yesterday, and have to
say i am so thrilled with all of my supplies you sent...The paper is
absolutely gorgeous, and everything was packaged to perfection..You, Kevin,
were so helpful in helping describe your products, but mostly, so friendly
and patient....I am so happy that i found your business, and will defiantly
pass the word to future brides...

Thank you so much,

Hi Kevin,

It's been awhile since we picked up our wedding invitations (a few weeks) but we wanted to let you know how much we loved them. They turned out beautifully and we've had several people comment on them. Thank you for doing such a fine job! We will definitely recommend you to future brides and grooms.

Thanks again,

Julie Dragin and Wes Fishburne
Kevin - My package arrived today and I was able to get half of my invitations done this evening.The directions you included were easy to follow and the results are everything I was hoping they would be. In fact, when I told my mother and future mother-in-law how wonderful the invitations and announcements were turning out they want to add to the list of people they would like to receive announcements.
I would like you to send the materials to make 50 more cards. I would need the handmade paper, vellum and fern. These won't have to be mailed out until the day of the wedding, so UPS ground service will be fine. Please charge it to the master card I used for the first order.
I would like to thank you for the quick service and care you took preparing the package for me. I will be sure to tell anyone I know looking for invitations and handmade paper about your web site.
Many Thanks, Shannon McMillen
Dear Kevin,
The paper was so beautiful, and the invitations are beautiful as well! You
make really special paper!
