We shopped paper shops, online, Etsy and various "pick from a book" options before finding Jan. Jan was great. If you want your invitations to be unique and creative, Jan is the best. After sitting down and talking with us for 15 minutes, you could tell that she got the idea of what feeling we wanted our invitations to convey and went right to work brainstorming ideas.
Jan is creative, but not sensitive when we tried to make suggestions or tweak her ideas. It was truely a collaborative process and in the end Jan's ideas blended with our ideas to create our perfect invite. Jan even went out of her way to work with her vendors to specially order specific paper that fit our wedding colors.
Jan is a do-er, not a talker. So many wedding vendors will repeatedly tell you how they plan to do something or list their ideas and then its weeks before you hear from them again. Jan is dilligent and takes initative. Simply put, she helped ease a lot of our planning stress related to invites and made the process easy. Our finished invites came to us orgainzed, addressed perfectly based on the guest list we sent her -- they were error free.
We received numerous unsolicited compliments on our invites including some from people who stated that they had no opinion on wedding invites until seeing ours. We loved Jan so much that we decided to have her create our place cards and seating directory and she carried our theme into both these tasks.
Jan was great. Do yourself a favor and give her a call. "Custom" does not always mean more expensive. In Jan's case, it means affordable and better.
Jan was very willing to make our invitations exactly how we wanted them! She finished everything in a timely manner and emailed the invitations throughout the process so we could see how they are coming along. Jan was also willing to work with us on making our invitations as cost effective as possible.
I can't believe how accurate and heartfelt Jan is. She so helped me with the wording and etiquette and color. She gets so involved in all the details and such I had save the dates that has a knot that untied and many comments on that. I got matching thank you,place cards,table cards that all were all turquoise and sand papers with a dotted wet looking paper and ribbons that all matched. The knock out was the invitation every person at my wedding commented that they show it to every relative and friend. Most people gasped they've never seen anything like it. It was a box shipped inside a box. The invite box had waves you open and ribbon with a metal flower and a shell from the destin,Florida beach that I gave Jan. She made my wedding. It set the stage for the utmost magic that came later you must see a picture! She is by far the most creative person in all of the listings. My program for the ceremony was such a beautiful addition . It matched the same papers and bow that was so perfectly put together. My thank you'd red our married name and are preaddresed for each guest which is so finished and professional looking and saves so much time! I can't wait to use Jan for other things now. My mothers friends and our families continually talk about how unbelievable the invitation was an"I've never seen anything like it and I'm saving it forever!". Jan is well worth the visit !!!
The invitations and wedding papers Jan created set the tone for the entire event. We had comments on the response cards about how lovely the invitations were. Jan carried out the theme and color scheme fabulously. She made it easy to get it all done. Our time frame was just long enough, and Jan came through with everything. If something added to the cost, she informed about that and gave details. A totally pleasant, wonderful experience.
I really enjoyed working with Jan - she was flexible with meeting with me, gave me a great mock-up since I had an idea of what I wanted, she also made sure the paper was perfect and really made it easy for me to enjoy the invitation process. The only thing that was disappointing was that I toyed with the idea of using white ink and unfortunately she is unable to print white ink. We ended picking a darker font and they turned out great. If you are looking for quality invitations in the Milwaukee area then please consider using All About You.
My husband and I are 100% happy with All About You Designs. Jan was efficient, professional, quick, and extremely calming during a very busy time. Our place cards were clean and simple just as we wanted them and she matched them to our invitations and wedding color perfectly. Jan also helped us to create a beautiful seating chart poster and in less than one week had our thank you cards and addressed envelopes completed. We got so many compliments on all of her work. In retrospect, we should have had Jan also do our invitations but we found her too late on The Knot. Her prices are very reasonable and she obviously takes great pride in her work. She respected our budget and our timeline and executed our vision perfectly. We will always go to Jan with any kind of invitations, cards, or paper related projects. She was all-around fantastic! Thank you so much Jan for all of your work!
Jan from All about you designs was great. She listened to what we wanted and how much we wanted to spend and made all work. The finished product was what we wanted and more. I would highly recommend All about you Designs to anyone!
I had looked at various options online for ordering wedding invitations, and I was not impressed at what was available in our price point. A friend of mine suggested reaching out to Jan at All About You Designs. I went to meet with Jan, and she took the time to get a feel for what I liked and what worked with our budget. She had several books of invitations she had done over the years, and they were all tasteful, unique to the couples, and made with quality paper. By the end of our first meeting, Jan had come up with a unique design just for us, utilizing our colors and some of the working themes I had at the time. Several weeks later, my fiancé and I returned together to meet with Jan so we could see the finished product in person...they were beautiful!
Once we finalized our guest list, I sent it to Jan and she custom printed every invitation, envelope, and RSVP card. When I went to pick them up, they were neatly arranged in one box, in alpha order, ready to be stamped and stuffed. It was easy and seamless. Jan had even given me very detailed suggestions on where to go (and not go) to mail them. I am happy I listened!
The comments from our guests have been nothing but positive. Like our wedding, the invitations are a reflection of our taste and style....and that is exactly what we wanted. I could not be happier with the product, value and personalized service we received by working with Jan. I highly recommend All About You Designs!
Jan was a pleasure to work with. My husband and I meet with other paper/invitation companies and the cost for what we wanted was way more than we wanted to pay. During our first meeting with Jan, she really took the time to talk trough and create EXACTLY what we were looking for within our budget! Jan is a very lovely lady, very professional, organized and prompt. She takes the time to make sure you are getting exactly what you want. We received so many compliments on our invitations and the personalized RSVP card made it a breeze to track responses. We also used Jan for our wedding signage. I would recommend her to every bride! Thank you Jan!!!!!

I would definitely contact Jan at All About You Designs to help you with all your wedding invitations needs.
I met Jan at a wedding show and after seeing examples of her work, I just knew she was the right person to help me create the perfect wedding invitation. Her invitations are just simply gorgeous and we received so many compliments from our guests who said it was the most beautiful wedding invitation they had ever seen. I couldn’t be more pleased with the work that Jan did for our wedding and I will continue to recommend her to anyone I know who is getting married.
Jan was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is such a creative person and gave me so many wonderful ideas as we worked together to create the most beautiful custom invitation that was not like any other. There were so many extra things that she also did such as addressing the invitations, guest place cards and cards for the candy buffet. I was so thankful to have worked with Jan and for all she did to make my wedding day so special. Thank you!
Jan was great to work with! Quick responses, attentive to details and excellent creativity. My save the dates, invites, placecards and table numbers where all done with Jan. Great material paper stock used. My invites had so many complements from everyone! Contemporary design with elegant chic look. Thanks for everything Jan!
I have always felt that a beautiful invitation "sets the stage" to a special event. My daughter's wedding was in May and the invitations, program, place cards and table numbers could not have been been more perfect. From the first night we sat down to choose the invitation until the night I sat at the reception and attempted to take the event to memory, Jan could not have been more professional. She listened to my daughter and helped her narrow down choices. Jan is knowledgable on wording, organization, design, color and has an array of papers at her finger tips! The end products were so perfect and Jan made the process stress free! A very honest and efficient business woman. I highly recommend her talents to anyone wanting great service and beautiful end products.
Meeting and viewing examples of Jan's work was a fresh of breath air when deciding our invitation vendor. Jan creates custom designed invitations and save the dates. She took time to listen to our ideas. She provides many options for stationary and takes time to discuss how we can contribute specific aspects into our final product. All along the way Jan provides samples and is always open to our opinions. She is willing to research images and implement them creatively into your product. Best of all Jan's custom creations are reasonably priced!!!
Jan also provides an easily laid out excel document for incorporating a guest address list and accurate wedding count. She makes the process as simple as possible!
Jan is easy to speak with either by phone or email. She keeps you up to date on all invite progress.
Jan designed beautiful Tiffany themed shower invitations for us! She was so helpful in creating a design that also fit our budget. The invitations were done even earlier than expected:) We look forward to finalizing the wedding invitations with her soon!
Everything is personalized and unique! Jan was patient and very creative when it came to my wedding invitations making sure I got exactly what I wanted and that it looked gorgeous! She had everything ready on time and all at a very reasonable price! Having her address the invitations was the icing on the cake.
Jan is absolutely fantastic!!
She is very upfront about costs and how to make things work for your budget which is amazing in a wedding vendor! I will never ever regret working with her to create my invites and placecards. She saved me so much time and effort and unneccessary costs that would've been involved if I had opted to make my own. Jan was so easy to work with, she has countless ideas and amazing examples to fit every style and taste.
I wish every part of wedding planning was as easy as the invites & placecards part with Jan! I absolutely reccommend her for any type of large gathering that you'd like to send your guests a wonderful first impression!! Who doesn't get even more excited about a party when the invite is beautiful/fun to begin with? Thank you Jan!!
Jan helped us with our invitations, programs, place cards, and table number.... all of which turned out wonderful! We worked on a whole new design and concept for our programs and she was willing to spend so much time and effort with us to make it exactly what we wanted. We even had a little hiccup with our invitations, but Jan made it up to us in so many ways! I would recommend Jan if you want something unique and personal... not just another 'template' of a wedding invite. Thanks Jan! :)
Jan will definitely go to work for you! Going in, I was only so sure about what I wanted. Jan worked with my ideas, and helped us plan it out, even though it was different from the samples she had. When we went to review the proofs, she printed and re-printed until it was exactly the way I had envisioned it in my mind. In the end, we got exactly the invitation I wanted at a much better price than what I would have compromised on at many of the local stores.
