After ordering Save the Dates through a magnet company and being thoroughly disappointed, I found Paper Works and Events. They are amazing! Alison, Andrea, and Ana are all incredibly talented and were such a pleasure to work with. I ended up with the most amazing Save the Dates, invitations, and rehearsal dinner invites too! They listened to what we wanted and helped us create the most perfect invites for our wedding. In the future, I will use their expertise for invitations and stationery. Hands down, one of the best decisions I made was using Paper Works and Events for our wedding!
One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was visiting Alison at Paper Works and Events!
Though my fiance and I had an idea about the overall emotion we wanted the save-the-dates and invitations to convey, we really didn't have many specifics in mind. But, Alison listened to us and within a few minutes, figured out what we wanted before we really did. She pulled samples and fonts that she thought we would like -- and we did -- and she used those elements to design customized pieces for us to choose from. It was only a couple of days after we visited her that we received emails with four different custom designs to choose from. And when we wanted to mix and match aspects from one design with another, she was totally cool with that, made a new design, emailed that over a day later, and voila - we made our choice. Quick, efficient and fun.
Also amazing - Alison is more concerned about the price of your product than you are! She doesn't want her brides to go broke and she works really hard to find cost-cutting alternatives in whatever design you choose. We managed to slash hundreds and hundreds of dollars off of the design we wanted -- without compromising our vision -- by making little tweaks here and there. The end result was a super fancy-looking product for a very reasonable price.
Andrea and Kerry were also great to work with - as they helped us with the envelope-printing process when Alison was on vacation. They were always very accessible on the phone and email, made sure everything was just right in terms of fonts and the actual data, and even stayed late one night when we were stuck in traffic en route to picking up our goods.
Thank you, ladies! The brides of Bergen County are very lucky to have you!
We used Paper Works for our invitations, tablecards and programs for our wedding on July 30, 2011. We shopped around to a couple different vendors in NJ before we found Paper Works. I echo another reviewer's comment that other places didn't want to seem to get to know us or really listen to us. We felt that Andrea's vision, knowledge, and honesty, were unmatched by any other vendors.
We absolutely loved our wedding invitations. We had custom invitations made based on different aspects of other invitations I had seen and liked. Andrea and Alison really made the whole invitation come together perfectly. Alison’s creativity and vision were incredible and she very responsive. From the beginning, Andrea did not offer us the most expensive options. Andrea felt that we could always add to the invitation and her pricing was reasonable. Our guests could not stop talking about our invitations and how they were the most stunning invitations that they had ever seen.
After the amazing job they did on our invitations, we also had them do our tablecards and programs. Eventhough tablecards and programs come at the end of the wedding process, it was not a stressful, Alison and Andrea made it so easy and the product was simple and elegant.
There is no need to look anywhere else!
P.S. We also just had Paper Works print our thank you notes and again their service and quality were wonderful!
I had an appointment today to discuss wedding invitations for my upcoming June wedding. Well what a terrible experience I had. When I got home, I wrote them an e-mail... here is what I said.
"Thank you for your time today.
Unfortunately, I was not impressed with how my mother and I were treated. We felt as if you didn't want and need our business. We sat there looking at books not knowing what can be customized, not knowing the prices, while you sat at your desk with your feet up... Literally. You should have just told us you didn't want is there because that is exactly how we felt. I respect the fact that you wanted to give us time to browse through the books - however, you gave me post it notes to tag pages. Okay, I did that and you didn't do anything about it. You didn't discuss the pages I was interested in. At the very end you mentioned one price to me. Yes, I saw one other invitation company a week ago to browse through items because this is new for me and it should be fun... sadly, today wasn't. You were more interested in your "competition" than you were at gaining a new customer. I will be sure to write a truthful review of your company on "the knot" which is how I found you. I am very disappointed.
Thank you for your time. Best of luck to you and your company."
Good luck to those who use this company. Maybe I caught them on a bad day?
This was our response to Jennifer's email:
I’m sorry I did not respond to you sooner because I was in client meetings all afternoon and evening as well as all morning and just had the opportunity to read through my emails. I think answering an email...
I worked with Alison starting with my save the dates (which she designed after hearing my vision, and they were amazing!!!) then they worked with me on invitations, escort cards, programs and menus! I always felt taken care of and all the work was beautiful! Alison always responded to emails promptly which was very important and something some other vendors did not! I would use paper works and events again and know that I would be getting amazing quality and still sticking to my budget!
Paper Works and Events did an amazing job with my wedding invitations. They were absolutely perfect, modern and elegant. They worked with me one on one to make sure that I was 100% satisfied with the product and were very quick to respond to emails and any questions that I had. Andrea, Alison and Kerry were very professional and did everything to make sure that my invitations were exactly as I envisioned them. I highly recommend them and their business. I got so many compliments on my invitations!
The attention and service we received was the best I have ever experienced. I felt like I was their only client, which is NOT the case. Our invitations were beautiful and we still receive complements on them almost two years later. Love, Love, Love!!!
I have to say, they created the most amazing invitations I have ever seen. We gave them a vision and they went above and beyond anything I could have imagined. Every detail was thought of and executed to perfection, from the invitations and envelopes to the programs, menus and place cards.
Love my invitations and had a great time with Andrea who helped pick them out. My guest are raving about the invites.
I was a bride who knew exactly what I wanted. I was referred to paper works and events through a friend of a friend, after being quoted so high in NYC I decided to call. I forts spoke with Allison who within five minutes on the phone knew exactly what I was imagining she instantly sent me a sample via email. Andrea came in on her day off to meet with me and pick papers and color options. I got a larger invitation with envelope liners and hand calligraphy for less them I was be quoted in NYC for a smaller invitation. I also wanted a custom monogram and Allison spent countless hours and days perfecting until we found the right font. Hands down a great value for amazing service. I highly recommend.
Wow . . . my invitations, place cards, and wedding programs exceeded my expectations! Working with Andrea and Alison was a pleasure from the moment we walked in to discuss invitations. Their patience and talent in finding and designing the right invitations/programs/place cards is unmatched! My guests were amazed at the elegance and beauty of their work and products! We received so many compliments! I've already started sending friends to them! They made the entire experience an amazing pleasure! I would strongly suggest you check out Paper Works and Events!
Let me just start by saying that Alison, who designed our wedding invitations, as well as our menus, programs and place cards, is literally an artistic genius! I started the wedding planning process thinking that we would just pick the simplest possible invitations and be done with it. However, once we spoke to Alison, and we heard all of her amazing ideas, we were sold. She created the most elegant invitations I have ever seen. It was like she went inside my head and created what I did not even know I wanted. There were dozens of guests who commented on how beautiful they were. I also saved myself a lot of headache by having Alison design and print our wedding programs. For a very reasonable price (I essentially told her all I could pay for them, and she found materials that would work in that budget), she created what ultimately matched my invitations in design and color scheme (she even used some of the same design elements she created especially for me), and delivered a gorgeous finished product that I did not have to then sit and start folding, tying ribbons to, etc. I just literally cannot say enough about Alison's work. She truly is exceptional at her job. She and Andrea worked really hard to make my husband and I happy.
We originally found Paper Works and Events through the Knot but later found out that several friends / family friends had used them with nothing but fabulous things to say. We ended up using their services for our wedding invitations, menu's, place cards and table numbers. Alison and Andrea were a huge help! They were kind enough to stay late past store hours to meet one-on-one since we were unable to get there earlier during work hours, and they helped us create one-of-a-kind invitations that were exactly what we were looking for! They were also patient and helpful in getting things done on short notice as we had delays from RSVP's and hurricane sandy. We were so happy with the end products and had so many positive comments on our invitations! We would absolutely recommend Paper Works and Events to anyone interested in creating custom or pre-designed invitations, etc. for their next event!
Andrea and Allison are amazing! They helped make my invitation incredibly unique and they were consistently timely, professional, and helpful. Having such great people to work with took a huge load off the traditional wedding stress. I would use them again in a heartbeat!
I loved working with Paper Works and Events. Alison was incredibly sweet and always very responsive. After a not so great experience with another vendor that did our invitations we decided to go with another company for the rest of our wedding stationary. Paper Works did an incredible job giving our stationary a cohesive look to the invites we previously had done. We were very happy with our programs, menus, and table numbers. So happy we recently had them do our personal monogrammed stationary. Alison was very knowledgeable and always honest, even suggesting less expensive options where it didn't make sense to spend more money. I loved that! Overall we were very happy with the service Paper Works provided.
Andrea, Alison and Ana were a pleasure to work with. We came to them needing menus and escort cards. They designed beautiful menus and escort cards which complemented an existing invitation. We were impressed not only by the quality of their work but by their attention to detail. They completed every stage in a timely manner and had the final product ready on the promised date. I highly recommend them to anyone in the market for wedding stationery.
Paper Works was really great to work with. Their team is patient, accommodating, has a lot of attention to detail and is very friendly. I would use them for any future printing!
Paper works and events are hands down the best invitation vendor in NJ!! From Day 1, I knew this was where my husband and I would be getting our invitations... Andrea understood exactly what we were looking for and helped us express that to her AMAZING designer Alison. I seriously could not thank them enough, as their patience, experience, good taste, and caring really helped created our PERFECT wedding invitation. They helped take our idea to another level and it set the tone for our entire day!!! It was everything we asked for!!! They are truly the best!! Thank you ladies!! :)
Andrea and Alison did an amazing job on our wedding invitations! The paper that they used was beautiful and they came up with ideas to help me cut down my invitation costs. I received a lot of compliments on my invitations and table numbers and would definitely recommend them. This was the easiest part of my wedding process!
"The most beautiful wedding invitations they have ever seen!" was the reaction and feedback we got from our guests to our wedding. My husband and I wanted classic, sophisticated, and elegant but had no idea what that actually looked like. Alison and Paper Works and Events were fantastic to work with, (were so patient with my indecisiveness!) and helped us created amazing wedding invitations and church programs. They were stunning and I literally gasped when I saw them for the first time!! I highly recommend them!
