Perfectly VintageReview by Carissa
Our wedding is going to have a 1940s feel to it. The way this invite subtly takes the background from clear photo then gradually changes to clear writing is perfect. We decided on a cream colored gradient to give it that vintage feel, and it came out perfect. 5 stars for quality. And I give 5 stars for service too. I did not expect a call from customer service because I chose not to have my order reviewed, but they were still kind enough to make sure my order was the way I wanted it. Thank you basic invite, you are one wonderful company. Posted on 9/2/2014
The product is amazing and also at time Review by Ernan
Good and quality product we really like it Posted on 9/2/2014
Invitations are great! Additional add-ons are expensive!Review by Michelle
The invitations turned out great! I really liked that I could input whatever wording I wanted, and didn't have to follow the already-input wording design. I do really wish that it wasn't so much extra money to order RSVPs that match the invitation design, I ended up ordering those from another site. Overall though, this is an excellent product and I will recommend this site to my friends. Posted on 9/2/2014
What a wonderful product.Review by Maria
Thank You for having such a user friendly site. I had looked around a few sites, trying to find the invitation that suited our style. The st. Paul - Portrait was exactly what we had both been looking for. The prices are appropriate, they arrived in the mail at the right time, and the quality of the prints were exceptional. I am confident as I send them out, that they will be loved by my guests just as much as I love them.
Thanks Posted on 9/2/2014
Love the Invitations! Review by Jennifer
I looked at several sites and choose your site. I love this design and it turned out exactly the way I wanted. I love the fact I could choose the pictures I wanted and also wording I wanted. I love the shimmer option! They turned out perfect! They also arrived much quicker than I expected! I'm very happy with them! I'm excited to get them sent out! I feel the envelope printing is a little too expensive, but feel the invitations were reasonable. Posted on 9/2/2014
