Wonderful! Review by Stephanie
I was very happy with the process, product, and pricing. I used the blank template and created our own save-the-dates which is just what we wanted! All we have heard are nothing by great things about our save-the-dates. Posted on 12/26/2018

Great quality, make sure you go lighter than you thinkReview by Allison
I ordered a sample in the color Verbena, which wound up being too dark. I switched to Purple and it looked much better — make sure you order a sample first and you’re sure about color! I love that the envelopes can be printed with the addresses. Great quality and huge time-saver. Posted on 7/6/2018

Very impressed with the short amount of time it took to receive my order. I placed it on Monday and had them by that Saturday! Overall great quality. I got the matte finish and they look great and the paper is a nice card stock. They also look exactly like they did in the online proof..all colors match exactly. Posted on 6/21/2018
