We worked with Amy, who was such a pleasure, very professional, and timely! We presented to her... Read More with less than 3 weeks before we needed to mail our invitations.

Planning the perfect wedding requires great attention to detail. Once the big decisions about size, venue and date are in place the special touches to make the day memorable need to be decided upon.

Nota Bene and specifically the women who work there gave us the best experience. They helped us with every last detail. They even stood alongside us as we were nit picky and indecisive.

Amy and Alexa were incredibly helpful (and flexible) throughout my entire wedding process!! I highly recommend Nota Bene. I was relatively behind on all of my 'to-do lists', and they were so accommodating with their schedules and timelines. They did my save-the-dates,... Read More invitations, programs, and place cards, and all turned out better than I could have expected. I wanted to set the right "tone" with my paper products, and with the help of Nota Bene, I did. The design process was very nice - as they don't push or try to make decisions for you. I had no clue what I wanted for my save-the-dates, and poured through all of their books. I found one I thought I liked. But, after seeing the proof, I wanted to change the entire thing. Alexa was verrry patient through the whole process. For the wedding invitation, I really wanted something beautiful and classic. The brand and style I wanted was pretty expensive, and they offered to show me similar, less expensive options to accommodate my budget.

I worked with Nota Bene for my October 2015 wedding in Chicago, IL at Fourth Presbyterian Church on Michigan Ave and a reception at The Racquet Club of Chicago. Nota Bene provided all of the stationary/paper work including: save the dates, engagement party invites, formal... Read More invitations, place cards, ceremony bulletin, welcome back info cards/map, Thank You stationary, etc. with many price points available for each item. However, Evvy and her team guided us through many other aspects of planning our Big Day aside from the paper goods. This was the first wedding for our family and Evvy provided invaluable advice and insight, from telling us how early to send out our Save the Dates for an out of town wedding, to suggesting we have an edible take-home gift for guests. We wanted an elegant, formal, and traditional affair and the stationary by Nota Bene captured exactly that. All of our guests (many from Fox Chapel, PA and Lake Forest, IL) commented on how stunning the formal invitations were. Our church was especially strict in their guidelines for the ceremony program, and Evvy had no problem accommodate every guideline. We had the a great experience working with Evvy, and Nota Bene and I would 100% recommend them for anyone planning a wedding or event!
