When looking into invitation designs the only things I knew for sure were what colors I wanted. During my first talk with the owner over the phone she was so helpful and knowledgeable about the design process. She was incredible with walking me through each step along the way.... Read More At my first meeting, she helped so much in getting an idea of the style I liked best. She had so many different designs to look over and pull ideas from. After the meeting, she gave me a quote so quickly and it wasn't long after that we had a proof to go off of. The whole experience was amazing and simple, which is exactly what I needed with all the other planning going on. Now to the product itself, AMAZING! I loved how my invites turned out and was so proud to send them out. I have recieved so many compliments from guests. I can't send enough thanks for making a beautiful product for my wedding and making the process so effortless for me. I highly recommend Too Chic & Little Shab Design to anyone who asks!

Julie is amazing to work with! She did both our save the dates and our wedding invitations for this october and we could not be more happy.

My daughter and I were planning a combined shower for my son and my other daughter. In doing that, we needed 3 different concepts for invitations: a separate invitation for each of the respective couples and then a combined invitation representing both. I wanted each of their...

We went back and forth on various images and she came up with an idea that was perfect!

I highly recommend her, especially if you're looking for something uniquely your own! The two couples were thrilled that their special day was recognized with the images, without being lost in a combination shower. Thank you, Julie and Too Chic & Little Shab!

I used Too Chic & Little Shab for a wedding invitation suite and I cannot express how perfect it was for me. Julie was extremely creative in the suggestions she made. I gave her a color palette and some inspiration and let her take it from there. We ended up using a vellum paper... Read More which was FABULOUS and different. Then, I used that same vellum paper for the menu cards. I cannot say enough nice things about my experience from start to finish. Julie responded very fast and was able to show me proofs of my design before printing. She never seemed to mind all the tiny change requests I made, she was very happy to help. I am definitely going to recommend Julie to others! Look no further, you found your stationary company!!! :)

I got so many compliments on my invitations. I wanted something that looked unique but professional. Julie met this expectation perfectly. Her design was upscale and stylish with unique touches that made it special (a fabulous font, a shimmer on the cardstock). The invitations... Read More looked and felt expensive (even though her prices are very reasonable!) And I have never seen an invitation like mine before--they were really special. In addition, I loved that she and her team put together the invitations so that I didn't have to do that part. My only concern was that I received the invitations about a week later than what was quoted--but Julie did an excellent job of keeping me updated the whole time, so I was not worried. Julie also designed my programs, table numbers, and place cards. These were also done on pearly cardstock with the glamorous font. Again, they added a touch of elegance to my reception, but they also felt totally personalized. Her designs made the night a little more special, and I am grateful for that.
