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 !!!
Jan did all the paper items for our wedding (programs, invitations, table numbers, etc). They looked wonderful! She helped us determine a style and integrated it throughout everything. We initially just planned to have her do our invitations but liked the product and working with her so much that we added on the rest. We received so many compliments on everything from our guests.
Jan was able to present all the options and explain how various details would impact price. She was never pushy and was willing to work with us within our budget. She was able to give helpful ideas and show several examples but still allowed us to go whatever direction we wanted.
Jan was very communicative and very detail-oriented. You can tell that she takes pride in her work, and no detail is too small for her to change or fix happily. She also worked well with our timeframe and always was done with items on time or early.
Jan was fun and easy to work with, and she made us feel valued as customers and showed interest in our wedding and in us. She was definitely one of our favorite vendors to work with!
After meeting with several different companies for wedding invitations, I knew Jan would be able to provide exactly what I had in mind. She has binders full of sample invitations she has made for previous weddings and provides plenty of ideas and options to ensure you get the design you want at the right price.
Throughout the process, Jan emailed drafts of the invitations, reply cards, and envelops and was happy to make any changes I wanted. She made the whole process easy and stress free!
Our invitations turned out beautifully and we have received nothing but great comments from our guests!
I will also be utilizing Jan for place cards and thank you cards.
Right from the beginning, Jan was so responsive and friendly. She had such a selection to choose from and was willing to customize our invitations exactly how we wanted and work with our budget. We had 1 mishap with the invitations but Jan was right on it and we were able to get our guests notified within 24 hours. Also, we had an additional item we wanted to include on our wedding favors, I e-mailed her last minute and within a day they were ready to pick up. She was so great to work with and very accommodating. I would recommend to anyone!!
Since my daughter lives out of state she asked me to help her with her wedding invitations. I did some internet searching and called a number of companies. They were reluctant to talk to the mother of the bride or give me a quote over the phone. When I called Jan she was so pleasant to speak with and made me feel like I was an important customer. She gave me a quote over the phone and we made an appointment to get together a few days later.
I met with Jan in her home a few days later and she gave me many invitation options that I then could discuss with my daughter. She has many examples of invitations she has done which makes it easy to see what you like and what you don't like. She gives you many options for your budget.
My daughter was also able to meet with Jan once and they then worked together over the internet to finalize the invitation design. Jan also did her place cards and table numbers. Being out of state was not an issue.
Jan met every deadline. She came in exactly on budget and her quality is exceptional. Even after we made a few mistakes, she fixed them for us quickly.
Jan makes the whole process seamless. She provides you with a spreadsheet for your guest list. Everything is delivered with explicit instructions and categorized to make the whole stuffing and mailing process very easy. Her personalized RSVP cards came in very handy when my daughter received several back with no entree indicated. Since they were personalized you could quickly communicate with the person to ask them what entree they wanted.
There are many things I can say about Jan and her business, but the thing that comes to mind is just how nice she is and how comfortable she makes you feel. If you want a vendor that truly shows an interest in you personally then Jan hits the nail on the head.
I would highly recommend Jan to anyone looking for wedding invitations, place cards, table numbers, etc. You will come away knowing you got the best quality product at your budget.
We really enjoyed working with Jan. Prior to our meeting with her, we visited some bigger stationers. We got a hugely better value going with Jan without sacrificing quality.
Jan prepared both our save the dates and invitations. She was so excited about working with us to make our vision a reality.
Jan was great with giving ideas and helping us enhance our ideas. She also gave great advise on proper etiquette, where and how to mail the invitations.
Jan also worked on a friend's wedding. My friend had the same positive experience.
I used Jan for my wedding invitations because I knew first hand, from my sister's wedding, how amazing of a job she does.
From the beginning, Jan has been the most accommodating, supportive, patient, organized and creative person to work with. Throughout my entire wedding planning process, Jan was by far been the most enjoyable to work with, a pleasure to meet with and her work speaks for itself.
She is meticulous with her detail and execution. Her organization style absolutely kept me sane when it came to my list of invites, rsvps, and even table numbers! She is wonderful.
She works tirelessly to make sure the finished product is exactly what you wanted and envisioned. She is so thoughtful and cognizant of the entire wedding process. She is personal and professional.
My invitations are stunning and really set the precedent for the feel of my entire wedding. Jan and the work she produces is unlike any other. Her prices are reasonable and she is worth it all.
Jan was an integral part in making my wedding day perfect! I 100% recommend her and her work.
I am getting married in December. My fiance and I had been looking at invites for about 6 months when we found Jan. During the time we were looking nothing was right and we tried and tried to find something. When we found Jan she had a sample of a snowflake invite on display in her booth, it was amazing. We fell in love with it. During the process of designing the invites Jan was amazing, I am kinda picky and I don't always know what I want but I tend to know what I don't want. She was wonderful as she helped to show us different options, and as I sent back proofs asking for changes or tweaks. I now have my invites and we are in love with them. I had not expected something so special looking. I would recommend her to anyone looking for something that is just theirs! She did everything in her power to give us exactly what we wanted and was always so warm and caring when we met with her. It was a truly wonderful experience for us!
I would highly recommend Jan to anyone for invitations since she did such a wonderful job for me. She was extremely easy to work with, easy to contact and quick to respond with any questions. She is so knowledgeable and was able to quickly design what I had in mind. The invites turned out beautifully and she made me matching table numbers and place cards so that everything flowed together. We received so many compliments on how great the invites looked and she willing to go above and beyond for anything I needed. Overall, a terrific job and a wonderful woman to work with!
I stumbled on "All About You Designs" online after getting frustrated visiting several invitations sites and not finding exactly what I wanted. So I gave Jan a call, I would recommend her in a heart beat. She worked with me to find out exactly what I wanted , she made helpful and creative suggestions, my invitations turned out beautiful! I had many compliments on them. Jan also helped me with my table cards, table assignment cards, and some other signs for my memory table, stone guestbook, etc.. I am also planning on using Jan to help create my thank you cards as soon as I get my photos from the wedding
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 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.
