My daughter and I knew that we were in the Best Hands when we met Carolyn at The Papery! She listened to our ideas for the Wedding Invitations and Stationary, provided us with thought-filled guidance, and worked with us in creating the most Beautiful Wedding Suite of Stationary! From the touch of the the letterpress font......every choice made was a detail that came easily with Carolyn by our side! She has a natural ability in stationary design, communicating through the design process, and was very prompt in delivery of the invitations.....including assembly and hand carrying to the post office for hand-cancelling! The wedding invitations were Beautiful!....Welcome boxes, menus, gift tags, ribbons, signs, Thank you cards were thoughtfully coordinated....and a Lovely, Romantic organza ribbon tied ceremony program! We feel very fortunate to have had Carolyn by our side in designing each important stationary for the wedding.....Thank You Carolyn!

We finally went to The Papery after spending many frustrating hours on Etsy and ordering samples. We worked with Jess, who was patient and knowledgable and wonderful. It only took us half an hour to pick out an invitation set. We must have changed the fonts seven different times via email but Jess was always easy to work with. They’re not the cheapest invitation shop around but I’m sure that they are the one of the best!

I highly recommend The Papery. They are very creative and responsive. For our wedding celebration, they did the invites, menus, guestbook, table names and table assignments. Our guests were impressed with the interesting pieces that The Papery created.

My mother and I were so happy with the invitations and all of the “day of” items that Carolyn at The Papery helped us come up with. Everything was simply beautiful! Carolyn was wonderful to work with! She was quick to respond to emails and answer questions about anything from etiquette to stylistic opinions. She was very helpful with guiding us through the invitation process and choosing what fit the best with the style of wedding I was having but also made sure to offer options that would help to keep us on budget. She was able to tweak things quickly when minor changes needed to be made and made sure that we got exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend working with the Papery to create invitations and any “day of” items you need – they can help you find exactly what you want – whether it’s an already created invitation suite or something entirely customized for you! We couldn’t be happier with choosing to work with Carolyn! Thank you!

I had a wonderful experience designing my Save-The-Dates and wedding invitations here. We worked with Jessica, who was so kind and patient. She was easy to work with through both in person and through email. She never seemed frustrated despite my (many) changes and requests throughout the process. We just picked up our invitations yesterday and they are wonderful!! I’m so excited to send them out. I highly recommend working with Jessica. They’re not the cheapest place, but I was proud to support a local business and I tend to agree that you get what you pay this case it was worth it!
