Jean M actually did both my wedding invites and my wedding programs so that the paper used was the same, colors were the same, and font the same. The website it super easy to use and they provide exceptional service. Was able to easily contact ...
customer service reps on the phone and talk to them about various questions and concerns. Highly recommend!

Let me be honest – I thought worrying about wedding invitations was a waste of time. If you were close enough to me and my wife that you were getting invited, you already knew through personal contact, phone, e-mail or word of mouth from our p...
arents when, where, and how the wedding was taking place. Formality aside, we’re not traditionalists and we didn’t even send out save-the-dates in paper form in an effort to be environmentally conscious. Still, we knew we had to do this, mostly for our older guests and to please our parents. Of all things, invitations ended up causing the biggest fights (even moreso than guest list)
Taking all that into consideration, we ended up visiting at least three local paper/stationery shops, looking through every book, Vera Wang, Kate Spade, Checkerboard, Modern Stationery, etc there was to see. Nothing grabbed us except for some extraordinarily expensive options. We couldn’t stomach spending that kind of money on something we didn’t care much about, so that’s when we turned to the web.
After getting samples from Magnet Street and WeddingPaperDivas.com we realized Jean M is in a class of its own. The cardstock is just the right weight and sheen, and the printing is sharp, accurate and near indistinguishable from the local stores. The difference is it’s half the price. PLUS, they offer discounts and promo codes. And, the advantage of cutting out the middleman means the order is shipped right to you. You also can design your own cards with their free online tools. The template software is really good for detail-oriented folks like myself.
The winner in all this for us was that we found a card style that was better-looking and fit our style more than anything in a book at a stationery store. It was a custom-design with two paper layers and two ribbon layers, and had to be hand-assembled at Jean M. That would cost an arm and a leg in the real world. But at Jean M it was a few hundred dollars! We are STILL getting compliments on our invitation.
The reason I docked them a star in the rating is that they screwed up the order on the text font for the outside envelopes. We paid for digital calligraphy and they used the wrong font. This, in the grand scheme of things, is minor…. but does indicate a lapse in oversight, since the font was clearly listed on the order form. To their credit, they admitted the error and refunded the cost of the calligraphy (or were willing to rush out the corrected order)
Overall, they were a really easy company to work with and it was great to be able to play around with the designs for free. One of the other things I liked a lot was their online chat, where representatives could answer questions until midnight EST.

Jean M creates beautiful wedding invitations. I created mine online and the process was simple. The only downfall was I had trouble with them emailing me the proofs causing a two week delay in shipment. I called the 800 number and the lady a...
ctually answered the phone hello do you need something? Once I wrote an email to the company the problem was solved. I did love the invitations and they were a great price.

I did not enjoy working with Jean M at all. However, the final product was of a high quality and being that I ultimately received over 70% off my order because of their errors, all I can do is inform people of the issues I had. One of the most ...
frustrating things was that there were probably only 2-4 instances of the 12-14 times I called where someone said they would call me back and actually did!
You should not submit orders via email which I did to avoid having to spell out each and every line over the phone in order to have one additional blank line added to the pre-formatted entry available on their website. It was several weeks before my invitations were even printed which I understand is because my order was never "assigned" to anyone as a result of coming in via email. Moreover, when I did finally receive my invitations they was a typo on the insert card that was not in the text I had emailed instead of dictating (in the interest of accuracy!). They were quick to turn around the replacement cards but because of weekends this delayed my invitations going out another five days.
Overall, the final product is great but I would not recommend using them unless your text fits into their website entry. When we ordered STDs through the website without any changes they came beautifully and quickly.

it yourself. They were also extremely affordable compared to many of the invitation printers I looked at for superior products.
