I am so happy with choosing A & P designs for all of my stationary! From our first meeting with Alicia to our final products, we enjoyed every bit of the process helping our vision come to life. From our invitations to our menus and programs and escort cards, everything came together so beautifully. She even drew and water painted a lovely rose for us that was used throughout the stationary. All of our details were so lovely and we are grateful to A & P designs for being such a great part of our wedding day!

I had been wanting an affordable letterpress option and spent months searching for the perfect invitations and found them here! I was not expecting the amount of back and forth communication it would take to create the invitations but Alicia always answered promptly. She was so accommodating and was able to produce exactly what we were looking for! If you are in need, A&P Designs can also reprint your invitations fairly quickly. The quality is excellent and I hope to have an occasion when I can order more things from them in the future.

Alicia and her husband did a beautiful job on our wedding invitations. She was extremely patient and easy to work with. They have so many options and are willing to customize as well. They had no problem getting me extra invites last minute when I had run out. Great to work with. I would highly recommend them.

A&P is absolutely fabulous!! Alicia and her husband own and run the business themselves and hand-print each invitation themselves. They also custom design EVERY single piece and put plenty of thought, care and attention into every detail. The prices are also very competitive. I fell in love with letterpress when I first started looking at wedding invitations, but could not afford the steep prices of most places. Alicia custom designed letterpress invitations for me at a price point lower that the quotes I was getting for some thermography designs elsewhere. I LOVED how gorgeous my invitations turned out, and I actually ordered matching Thank Yous and ceremony programs from Alicia as well! Alicia was also very quick to respond by e-mail at all times, and was always very flexible about meeting me to pick out papers, approve the design, and pick everything up. I cannot say enough good things about A&P, and I would recommend them to anyone in the country!

We had toyed around with the idea of creating and printing our own invitations to save money, but after looking for a local invitation company, we came across A+P Designs (9 weeks before our wedding...).

After speaking with Alecia, I was excited again about invitations! She is brilliant and our invitations came out beautifully! I didn't think letterpress would ever be in our budget.

And the envelopes! The way they addressed them with a wrap-around band on a black envelope was awesome! I didn't know you could be wowed by an envelope!

Alecia was quick to respond and wonderful to work with. The turnaround time was astounding!

Don't buy an online pre-fab invitation when you can support a local business and get a better quality, better designed, and better looking invitation with A+P Designs! I am sending all of my friends to them!

Alicia is amazing!! I came in with an idea of what I wanted our invitation to look like and A&P made it exactly what I had envisioned and was also able to carry the theme with the menu cards and the drink coasters. I got so many compliments on the invitations that they were so unique and true to our style. It captured us as a couple perfectly.

Working with A&P Designs to create our save the dates and wedding invitation suite was such a fun experience. Alicia was so wonderful and patient tying in all of my requests and developing such a gorgeous and unique invitation that was exactly what we were looking for! I was even able to afford Letterpress - since they press the invitations in house, they are able to keep the cost really reasonable for Letterpress! We were thrilled with the quality of our paper goods and are so happy with our custom wedding invitations!

I searched everywhere online for quality and affordable letterpress invitations. Every place I looked, seemed way overpriced or every change of a format had a high cost to it. I came across A&P designs through ETSY and fell in love with one of their designs - her pricing was competitve or even a little less than other shops similar and she was able to provide full pricing up front - so I knew how much everything would cost. We wrote back and forth daily regarding my vision and she was happy to provide numerous versions of the design so I could really figure out which I liked best (different fonts, formats, colors, etc..). Everything was done so timely and when I got the box in the mail, I was ecstatic - the proofs were great, but in person, the invites were beautiful! Letterpress is a high-end way to deliver invitations and I didn't have to spend 2k to get exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend A&P and will certainly use them again!

Alicia made us amazing invitations for our wedding. We literally exchanged close to 100 emails back and forth tweaking my invitations and she was always so understanding about the different changes I wanted to make, etc. The invitations turned out perfect and they were really personalized to our wedding. I loved them so much and the paper quality and letterpress was amazing. Guests to the wedding commented that our invitations were so unique and special. After receiving the invitations, I asked Alicia to make us menu cards to match and she was able to create them to match - it was perfect. I also then asked for our table card numbers and I had a vision in my head of using antique maps of places we have traveled. Alicia helped me create this idea and it looked wonderful! Don't be afraid to ask for what you are envisioning and this company will help you create it!

I don't even know where to begin....Alicia, owner of A + P Designs, is AMAZING!! She is one of the most talented people I have ever worked with in terms of taking my idea and perfecting it. I must say, I probably gave her at least 10 different ideas and design elements for our wedding invitations and she somehow managed to put it all together in what is one of the most beautiful, fashionable, & glamorous wedding invitations that I have ever seen! All of our friends keep calling us to rave about the designs!! It was so much fun working with Alicia and she really helped me by speeding up production time as our engagement was very short, not giving us too much flexibility with time! Right now, we're in the midst of working on escort cards and thank you cards (which I highly recommend brides to order ahead of time)! I can't wait to see what they turn out looking like too!! Thank you Alicia & Pat for creating such an amazing invitation for my wedding day and for being so easy and enjoyable to work with!

Alicia is amazing and truly a helpful vendor. I found her shop on etsy.com. She introduced me to the world of letterpress and I was in heaven. I had no idea that such elegant invitations did not have to come with the same price tag as my wedding gown. Our invitations are absolutely gorgeous. Every little detail from the envelope liner to the belly band were perfect.

Alicia responded to over a 100 emails about color changes, font size RSVP wording from myself and my mother within hours. I felt as if I was her only client. She even took the time out to pick up the phone for clarification of an email.

A&P Designs are a bride's dream for a stress free online transaction. I will be using them for thank-you cards, birth announcements and any of paper goods we may need.

Seaside Invitations was a referral to me from my Wedding Planner. I made so many changes to my wedding plans that I constantly sent them emails about what I was doing and the changes I would need to make. They were so accommodating and reassuring telling me to just let them know when I had all my final details. I ended up not ordering invitations but instead decided to use them for thank you notes. I look forward to ordering them and receiving them as the proof for my invitations was awesome!

Seaside Invitations is absolutely amazing. I had heard of Alicia through the company that I work for. We recommend a lot of our brides to use her because she can make anything possible and so much better than what you can even think of. I was about to graduate from graduate school and I wanted to send out announcements. I could either buy the boring, same old same old school announcements, or I could order custom announcements from Alicia. Naturally when I saw the final product I knew I made the right choice. She made it even better than what I expected. I also had the envelopes decorated on the inside and it was such a classy touch. The response I received back from family and friends who I sent them too was amazing. Not only were they telling me congratulations, but they were telling me how nice my announcements were. I have also ordered personalize stationary from Alicia and it was amazing. Her creativity and outstanding customer service truly ranks her as the best. If you are looking for something that 'wows' your guests, this is the place. I can’t wait to order more products from Alicia and her team!

I've been friends with the Owner and Designer, Alicia, since high school and when she decided to open her own invitation company with her husband, it couldn't have come at a better time because I needed someone for all of my wedding stationary needs. I was a Destination Bride, living in Wisconsin and planning a wedding in Florida. So having a beach theme, I wanted something different that captured the essense of the beach without being too much of a cliche for my Save the Dates and Invitations.

Seaside Invitations provided unique hand painted beach theme designs. For my Save the Dates they designed a postcard where they painted a beautiful blue colored beach scene for the background and added our names and location of the wedding on the front. Then on the back had more information and room where we could handwrite a personal message if we wanted to. They also designed a message in a bottle with a elegant label on the front with sand and shells inside along with a rolled piece of paper with our wedding information. I went with two different save the dates because I couldn't decide on one. I only sent the message in a bottle to my close family, some friends, and bridal party (because of cost) and the postcard to the rest of my guests. I mailed 45 message in a bottles and 80 postcards. My save the dates are featured on her blog...Check out the link http://www.seasideinvitations.com/destination-save-the-dates. I received a lot of compliments on my Save the Dates from my guests and that's what I was going for.

Also my bridesmaids used Seaside Invitations for my Bridal Shower invitations. It was a beach themed shower and they created cute luggage type tag invitations. Here is a picture of that as well: http://tweetphoto.com/29688240
(My invitations were featured twice on their Twitter Photo account!)

For my wedding invitation, I wanted to create a feel of a travel itinerary so I came up with an open pocket envelope where Alicia designed my formal invitation along with a passport that contained additional information about the ceremony, reception, maps, and accomodations. And for the response card I did a postcard. It turned out more that what I expected it to be. Alicia also created my wedding programs which were similar to the design of my formal wedding invitaion.

I highly recommend using Seaside Invitations for all of your wedding stationary needs and more. They are wonderful to work with especially since I live so far away. They were in constant contact through email and were easily available by phone. They work hard in creating customized styles to fit your wedding motif and I know to use them again in the future for Christmas Cards, Baby Announcements, Stationary and Letterhead, or even Logo Designs.

Alicia did a WONDERFUL job on our invitations. She and her husband created original acrylic-paint artwork for our invitations in the style of children's book illustration Eric Carle. They incorporated my love of bright colors, pinwheels, and butterflies into fun, cheerful full-color invitations on beautiful textured paper, and even allowed us to use digital versions of the artwork on our own printed info-sheet inserts. Alicia was fun to work with. We met for coffee, and over the course of 45 minutes, she pulled all sorts of ideas out of me, sketching and designing as we spoke. She was responsive and helpful, with many e-mails going back and forth about wording, spacing, and font over the course of the next few weeks. I was very, very happy with the finished products.

Alicia with Seaside Invitations was amazing in designing my MonoLOVEgram. The designs were great, and she was really supportive (and responsive) throughout the whole process. I thought I needed the files in a particular format, so she sent them to me like that -- when that didn't fit what I needed, she sent me something else! I used these monoLOVEgrams on my invitations and programs -- and got really great feedback! She's great!

Alicia was very punctual and prompt; a great business woman. She is also extremely well priced and the quality of her work is excellent! I priced out a custom boarding pass invitation with a sleeve at another vendor, and they charged more than double of what Alicia charged. The invitations came out perfectly and everyone raved about them. I was very pleased with our adorable invitations and would definitely recommend her!

I met Alicia and her husband at a bridal show, and I am so thankful that I went that day! I had a very specific vision for what I wanted my invitation suite to look like, and Alicia worked painstakingly with me over several drafts and dozens of emails to get them perfect. She is so cute and sweet and uber patient which is very important throughout the invitation process. She knew how antsy I was to get my invitations, and even drove them to Tampa to meet us at work to give them to us since she was in town. I have recommended her to several friends (most of which are using her!) and she has been just as great to them as she was to us. Very, very highly recommended!

Our invitations were gorgeous, but there were a few minor hiccups along the way. I would recommend them, but I would also suggest that you ask if your invitations will cost extra to mail because of their shape (ours were square and, therefore cost almost $1 more each to mail). Also, order them early. I waited a bit and a few things weren't what we originally dicscussed (map wasn't what we'd talked about, etc.), but the quality of work is really good & if I had given myself more time, they would have gladly re-worked them for me.
