I used Persnickety Invitation Studio for everything I could for our wedding. We shopped around a bit for invitations, but after one meeting with Melissa (the owner) my choice had been made. She was so kind, thoughtful, professional, and thorough! She helped my mother, my (now)... Read More husband, and I pick our wedding invitations, decide on the wording, font, color, just everything! We wanted something very classic and traditional and that's what we got! She told us about a promotion that was going on with William Arthur and reminded us when we needed to place our order to take advantage of it etc. After the invitations were settled, we used Persnickety for several other things: our rehearsal dinner invitations, our custom Mr.and Mrs. R thank you notes, our seating chart for the wedding, our fan programs for our wedding, and we even had them make signs for the two bars that listed the beers that were hand selected by the father of the groom! Everything matched perfectly, Persnickety made sure that everything came together and looked so classic and polished, it was perfect. As I told the team at Persnickety: I was so impressed that, no matter where I move during my life, if I need paper products (baby news etc) I will be bringing my business to them, and I don't say that about many companies/stores because I am so picky! Thanks again for everything Persnickety!

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!

They worked with us to create our customized items to compliment our wedding theme and ideas.

We worked with Persnickety to design our wedding invitations, as well as some other paper products for our wedding. We worked mostly with Alexis. I could not have been more thrilled with my experience with Persnickety. I had no idea what kind of invitations I wanted, and... Read More once I saw one element of an invitation in one of their books that I liked, Alexis worked with me to create a semi-custom invitation that was absolutely gorgeous. Everyone kept telling us that it was the most beautiful wedding invitation they had ever received. They were very high quality, particularly for the price that we paid for them, which was very reasonable. After we had such a great experience with our invitations, we decided to work with Alexis on our other paper goods, including the menu, program, favor, match books, table numbers and place cards, cocktail napkins, and the big sign that directed everyone where to go at the venue. Everything coordinated, and it was all beautiful. Alexis designed all of those elements and they perfectly fit my vision for the day; the items on the tables in particular looked amazing with everything else we had chosen. I can't say enough good things about my experience with Persnickety. They were so warm and friendly, and I could tell they really wanted to give me what I wanted. Thank you Alexis and Melissa!!!

Persnickety was hands down our FAVORITE wedding vendor out of the entire experience. They made wedding planning so much fun and we actually looked forward to our regular appointments with them. Melissa and her team are truly creative and fantastic at what they do. Early on when... Read More we met with them for Save the Dates they quickly captured our vision and color scheme and were able to carry it through every little detail for the remainder of the wedding planning. We literally used them for EVERY bit of paper product that we needed and we had absolutely no complaints. They created our save the dates, invitations, programs for the ceremony, table numbers, place cards, card box, thank you cards and SO much more. They were so great that my sister even went to them for the bridal shower and bachelorette party invitations. In addition to their beautiful and meticulous work, we were definitely impressed with the timeliness of their service. They were very prompt in getting things done and we were able to send everything out with plenty of time to spare. As far as I'm concerned they should be the only option for stationary/invitations in the area.


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.
