Artiface specializes in custom invitations and event-day printed items for the bride who wants something that is hers alone. They have a unique selection of gorgeous papers, envelopes, ribbons and findings, plus a creative team to put it all together into a distinctive, sophisticated look. They also carry predesigned invitations you can order from the stationery companies they represent (Encore Studios, Consortium, Mainio, Elite and more.)

I have had my Save the Date, wedding shower invitations, wedding invitations and whole wedding suite of items, stationary... Everything gets done at Artiface.

Let's get something straight right away- you come to Artiface to get the best. You get what you pay for.

If you've got the budget- there is literally no one else that I would recommend.

My Save the Date cards were the first thing I had done by Artiface. I found a really cute template from Martha Stewart, and knew that I wanted to use it. Artiface took the design and then MADE IT EVEN BETTER! The graphic designer didn't like the way that some of the wording was layed out... looked fine to me, but her version was so much better, it was almost funny. The Save the Dates couldn't have turned out more perfect. It was the perfect way to get people excited for our wedding.

My wedding shower invites were really fun. They had one that I liked from a previous client, but I hate pink, so they switched everything to a really light lavender and it was perfect. They even hand glittered the ribbon around the invitation. It was so pretty, it definitely made the event seem super special.

Now. My wedding. I really don't even know where to start. I have seen a lot of very expensive, very elaborate invitations. I wanted elegance and class. Not rhinestones and frilly things. I wanted a very streamlined, classy look. What I got, was the most beautiful invitation that I've ever seen. My friends have said that they don't know what to do with it. They don't know where to keep it, but they don't feel right throwing it out, because it's too beautiful. I chose an Ecru color raw linen "folio" (book) with a gorgeous navy satin ribbon with a monogram of our initials. Everything was in the most exquisite paper, and backed in a navy linen cardstock so that everything felt heavy and sturdy. They had a gazillion fonts for me to choose from, and helped me find something that wasn't too swirly or crazy. Again- I

The invitations alone were lovely but we felt like they were not worth the cost or the struggle. We felt like a transaction or money cow, rather than customers. Kristy was friendly to meet with at first, but after we signed and put down the deposit, things changed. When she couldn't provide the brooch we picked and we set a follow-up meeting (came in from out of town), last minute she didn't show because her pet was "ill." We ended up going with a more expensive alternative we liked less and she offered no discount or effort to accommodate for the inconvenience. Most importantly, they are very quick to UP-CHARGE you for anything. While other invitationists are flexible with you and offer considerable "perks," Artiface is not like that. Their perks are a joke in comparison. Our original budget was $10-15 an invite, we put a deposit down with quote cost of about $16 and after additional fees ended up paying more than $20/each. Ultimately we paid more than $3000, for invitations we could have gotten from other invitationists we met with for under $2000. I would recommend looking at alternatives like Calligraffiti in Irvine or Invitation Design Studio in Tustin for better value and customer service.

ARTIFACE is the BEST place to go if you want the quintessential invitation for your special day. Invitations are "the first impression" - they set the tone - good or bad - for whatever event you are planning...whether it's your wedding, baby shower, anniversary, birthday, or celebration of any kind! At Artiface, you will get a lovely, high-quality, artistic invitation that truly reflects you! They did my wedding invitations last February which turned out absolutely stunning. People STILL make comments to me about them saying how beautiful and unique they were! I even saw one on display in someone's home (a year after my wedding!) just because they liked the decor of it so much! Every step of the way, the staff at Artiface was extremely professional, accommodating, artistic and creative and went above and beyond to make my dream invitation come to life! I highly recommend their services to anyone! They will ensure that you get the outcome you are hoping to achieve!

I had a wonderful experience with them! My wedding was in California and I live in Texas so I was nervous about the designing process with such distance between us but also because I work only overnight shifts. However, they have a website that allows you to directly communicate with them and view your proofs before they ever go to print - this made the process much easier. The people that work there are truly artists and help guide you through the options depending on your vision. They use absolutely beautiful paper goods which places their finished products on a whole different level than others. So many of my guests shared they were the most beautiful wedding invitations they had ever received!

I used Artiface for all of my paper needs for my wedding (i.e.. invitations, menus, place cards, and even my thank you notes) and every piece was designed to perfection. Kristy and her team took my ideas and reflected them beautifully with the design of my elegant invitations and continued this design throughout all of my paper items. The quality of the paper and the uniqueness of design is beyond anything I ever imagined. I am still receiving compliments on my invitations months after my wedding!

Kristy, Cathy and Nancy made our wedding invitation experience very special. Their team helped us create a fabulous design, and they love the challenge of complex invitation. We have received so many compliments on the invitation, people have said things like "I didn't know what to do with it because it was so beautiful, so I kept it." and "It was like we were invited to the Royal Wedding".They were always on top of everything, they made you feel like you were their only customer- very personable and honest. We also had our dinner menu, table numbers and guest names done with Artiface, which all turned out amazing. Everything was done before the deadline they gave us. This group is very talented and can do really do whatever you want. I highly recommend at least making an appointment to see their work before trying anyone else.

Artiface did a wonderful job with our save the date cards and invitations. We had so many people compliment us on our invitations. They were truly gorgeous and met our vision. The online proof system that they use is a little difficult, but it was worth it in the end when we saw the finished product.

If you have the money to spend on having invitations custom made for your event (I'm talking average $15 and upwards per invite), by all means, this is your kind of place. They will provide you with as much or as little help as you need to make pretty little invitations and stationery for you. They've been in the business for a while and know what they are talking about.

I wanted to make my own invites and came here just for the pieces of the puzzle. I always felt like they were dragging, probably because I wasn't a top priority customer spending thousands. They messed up some very important details that made me have to scrap my plans and settle for less than the amazing invites I envisioned. My advice is if you don't have the money to toss around, go somewhere else.
