Review Summary (Based on 3 Reviews)
I bought these invitations because they reflected the traditional, elegant style people used to use. I was not looking for a modern invitation that was overly colorful or "themed". These came exactly as ordered; they looked just like the image online. I could not be more pleased with how they turned out!
The invitations are beautiful, classy, and simple--which makes them easy to read but they still make a statement. The detail on the top is very well made and noticeable. I am going for a Great Gatsby Art Deco vibe for my wedding, but I saw these invitations and knew that they would announce the wedding clearly and still be very classy. Foil invitations are nice, but I know that I will look back on choosing these invitations and like them more--they are much more timeless. I used Parisian as my main font and Piranesi Italic as my accent. It looks gorgeous and adds a bit of an art deco vibe. The only complaint I have is that the paper is not very heavy. If you hold it up to the light you can see through it. It has decent weight, but you can tell the paper isn't super high quality. If I can still fit them in envelopes, I might add some vellum backing or something.
It can be a scary thing, buying invites over the internet. But this invitiation really delivered, and I was so relieved when we got a sample in the mail! I'm a pretty picky visual artist/graphic designer, and I was thrilled with the detail and beautiful elegance of this emboss. Contemporary vines and scrollwork can sometimes be too simple and get a little boring, but I don't get tired of looking at this one. Also, I was interested in seeing how the registration/banding would be on such a subtle pattern and fade, and I'm happy to say that this softest gray seems barely there, and fades to white perfectly. Very happy with it! It is so pretty! If I had to say one thing, I wish there was an option to pay more for slightly heavier paper. Don't get me wrong, I think it works, and I got them for my wedding, but to bring a 95% to a 100% it would be that little extra. Oh, and personally, I'd go with a different font than the one they recommended. University Roman worked so well for us. Get the sample, and see for yourself! But if you are pressed for time, I think you can trust that this is a beautiful, classic invitation. Oh, man! If I could give an ELEVEN out of five for customer service, I would. EVERY person I spoke with at this company was exceptional. Everyone was VERY patient with my many questions, offered helpful solutions without being overbearing or assuming they knew what I wanted. I even needed to make changes after I'd ordered/received my first printing, and they worked to find a solution with me. It's rare you find such incredibly great service for such a reasonably priced product. Every time I got off the phone with them, I would gush over how GREAT they are to work with. I wish I could do more than just write a good review, because their help in such a stressful time was simply wonderful, and made me enjoy the process. I'd buy from them again in a heartbeat.
