We got our wedding invitations and day-of stationary from The Papery, including table numbers, place cards, and programs, and everything was perfect. The quality was excellent, and Jess did a fantastic job guiding us through the process. Jess was really great to work with, and... Read More she was always responsive to our questions and easy to reach through email. She had an impressive talent for making the process less stressful, and her laid back style was refreshing. A few days before the wedding, she even printed out a letter that my husband wrote for me to open on our wedding day, which is just one example of her flexibility. Thanks for everything, Jess; you rock!

I worked directly with Carolyn to create custom invitations for my wedding. She patiently explained to me all the different options regarding typography, paper weights and printing styles; and we went through books and books of designs. At the end, I decided to go with something... Read More completely custom - a drawing inspired by my Polish heritage.

Envelope Printing!

I found it hard to find a vendor that printed on envelopes - The Papery is one of the few around! And they did a great job. I worked with the owner, Carolyn, who is very knowledgeable. The only problem I ran into was the invitations printed a slightly different color than I... Read More thought they would turn out to be. Make sure you take a look at the Pantone colors so you know what you are getting. And be prepared that it takes about 10-15 days to finish the printing and envelopes.

Carolyn Brandhorst has the patience of a saint. Had she known that I was a neuroradiologist, someone literally trained to notice and discuss the most minute of aberrances, she may not have been so excited to work with me. But two "invitation shopping days," five proofs, and... Read More close to 50 emails later, Carolyn was still responding to each of my questions, suggestions and requests with kindness. She was passionate, flexible and helped me design the most beautiful wedding invitation set I could imagine- one that captured my personality and will stand the test of time in photographs.
