Knowing that invitations are the first glimpse your guests are going to get into your wedding, I wanted mine to be spectacular and Melissa and her team at Persnickety certainly delivered! I have been told by multiple people that the invitations are the prettiest they have ever... Read More seen and I totally have to agree! Melissa also helped design multiple other stationary items for the wedding including programs, signs, place cards, and save the dates, and all came out beautifully. I highly recommend Persnickety for your stationary needs!

Persnickety Studio went above and beyond my expectations! I used one of their formats online to personalize our wedding invitations. The price was extremely fair and comparable (if not better) than other sites that I had researched. A few days after submitting my order I... Read More received an email from Katie, who sent me a proof of our invitations with some suggested changes. I accidentally added an extra work which she immediately caught AND suggested a font change which made a HUGE difference. She then made the changes and sent me another proof for me to see. I was sold just by Katie's kindness and willingness to help. However, once my invitations arrived I was completely blown away. Our invitations are absolutely GORGEOUS! As ours were fairly "plain" but elegant, I cannot begin to imagine what they would have looked like had we gone into the studio to design them. I will now find every excuse I can to use Persnickety Invitation Studios for even the simplest of events in the future! Do yourself a favor and check them out! You will not be disappointed.

Persnickety Invitation Studio is the BEST!!! Melissa and her team are top notch and brought all my stationary dreams to reality for my wedding! I decided I wanted custom invitations and the wedding coordinater at my venue, Wyndridge Farm, recommended Persnickety. I am sooooo... Read More glad she did!!! I brought all my ideas to Melissa for our first consultation. She got the vibe I wanted instantly and suggested perfect recommendations for how the color scheme should be displayed. She emailed me several different fonts and layout options with different flower detailing and suggestions on wording and was so patient and accommodating with the tweaks I wanted to make. The end result was STUNNING!!!! Every detail was perfect, her recommendations and design expertise made the invitation and accompanying direction, meal and rsvp cards, everything I could have ever wanted and more!! I was told over and over again by my family and friends that they were most beautiful wedding invitations they had ever seen!! And I couldn’t have agreed more :) One of the most special aspects of this partnership with Melissa was right when everything was coming to finality for the invitation design...my brother in law passed away suddenly. For a week I was trying to process what had just happened while finalizing the details for the invitations. Melissa and her team were absolutely incrediable at quickly processing all the informarion when I finally got it to them and getting it printed and ready for my pickup ASAP. They were genuinely concerned at the well-being of myself and my family and were life savers at getting everything completed at lightening speed. I am so grateful for their efforts as it was something I knew I didn’t have to worry about during that traumatic time. Once the invitations were completed, we went ahead and started on the designs for the programs, place cards and additional signage for our reception, including a large bar menu that they mounted in one of their gorgeous gold frames! The result was gorgeous and they are removing the sign from the frame so we can hang it up in our home :) Everything had the colors and theme from our invitations so it was a beautiful tie in at our reception! We even rented their gold glitter table numbers at the last minute which added just the right amount of sparkle to each table! Another really important and emotional aspect we added was “in lieu of favor” tents for each table, originally as a remembrance for my father who passed away 13 years ago. When my brother in law passed away suddenly during this process, we added his name and both charities we were contributing too on the tents. Melissa was instrumental again in suggesting wording and design to make them a beautiful rembrance for each guest to read. All in all I just can’t say enough about how wonderful my experience was! I am so so happy my coordinater at Wyndridge Farms suggested Melissa and her team, it was absolutely a dream working with them! Anything I need from here on out for stationary needs, will definitely come from them!! Their personal touch, and expert guidance is second to none! Thank you thank you thank you and looking forward to working with you all again very soon!!!!

Read More We used Persnickety for save the dates, wedding invitations, and soon to be thank you cards. My husband and I were blown away with the amount of compliments we received, especially on the wedding invitations. Melissa made sure everything went smoothly during the entire process.

I personally rented their table numbers, picture frame for a seating chart, and other miscellaneous items that added well to my wedding theme. Living in Delaware, I was a little nervous using a company so far away but in the end it worked out perfectly. Persnickety is top notch in what they do and are worth the drive.

When I was trying to pick out invitations for my very formal wedding, I was starting to lose hope that anyone actually sold the high-quality invitations that I was looking for. Thankfully, I found Persnickety! The invitations that Persnickety helped me to put together were to... Read More die for, and they didn't cut any corners. The cost was very reasonable, and the set included invitations, inner envelopes, outer envelopes, reception cards, brunch cards, response cards, and thank you notes with envelopes. Melissa and her employees were so easy to work with. My father passed away when I was young, but we wanted to make sure that he was included as a host for the wedding. No etiquette books had any acceptable suggestions for doing this, but Melissa knew how important this was, and she worked with my mother and me to come up with the perfect wording. The guests who knew him were so touched, and we would never have come up with a way to include him without Melissa's help. She also made sure that the wording was exactly right for my formal, Catholic wedding. Once the invitations were planned, Katie worked with me on alignment and spacing. In all, she produced 5 different drafts, and she always took my requests to change minute details (like spacing or line placement) seriously. She is a true professional, and she didn't stop until every detail was absolutely perfect. People say that invitations set the tone for an event, and that was definitely true in this case. Persnickety made it so easy for me to communicate to my guests exactly what they could expect, and the beautiful invitations got everyone excited for the big day!

Meet The Owner

Melissa Weiler

For me, the best part of creating invitations is the look of joy when a client first holds one of their finished invitations. The invitation is often the first tangible part of the wedding process, and holding it in their hands makes the moment - and the emotions behind it - truly real. Each piece we create is not just a hint of what's to come, but a reflection of the couple themselves. I received my Associate’s Degree in Graphic Design from Bradley Academy for the Visual Arts, York, in December 1994 and opened my retail shop and studio in York on June of 2008.
