My husband and I had a lot of ideas for our wedding invitations but didn't know how to really gather them into an actual invite. Our wedding was true mix between bohemian and traditional. When we asked Steve at ByHand Invitations to create an invite that would reflect the rustic elements while keeping it slightly traditional, he not only figured out how to make every random idea we had a reality, he made them even better. He is so patient, a brilliant artist, and filled to the brim with ways to make your wedding invite go from just alright to frame-worthy. His invites were really well priced (especially for the DC area!) and he was amazing at working with us while we were temporarily long distance while planning! Steve is perfect for creative and traditional couples alike- gold foil acorns surrounding soft navy letterpress? Genius. I highly recommend ByHand Invitations or Steve for any announcement or invite!

Steve did a marvelous job on our wedding invitations. We received extremely high-end design services for below-market cost. He met with us, really listened to what we wanted, and came up with designs that were so much better than we had hoped for. He was timely, responsive, and treated us like valued customers, even though we were on a tight budget. And he and his wife were just really nice people. We'll be going back to him to do our place cards and wedding programs.

Not only did my invitations turn out better than I could have ever hoped for, but the process was so much fun thanks to Steve. We came to By Hand Invitations not knowing what we wanted. Steve took the time to talk through our vision for the wedding and showed us a ton of options to get us thinking about what we might do. From there we collaborated together, shared ideas and ultimately hit on a one of a kind invitation that I just loved. Throughout the process Steve was patient, insightful and creative. He also pays close attention to the little details that helped make our invitation beautiful. I would recommend By Hand Invitations to anyone.

it was such a pleasure working with Steve! after just one meeting he was able to translate our vague and abstract idea into a beautiful invitation that perfectly matched our style! he was incredibly patient and willing to work through several rounds of edits to ensure that every detail was just right. in addition to invitations, Steve also designed the escort cards, table numbers, menu cards, and thank you cards--we were so pleased with the way it all turned out!

Steve happens to be my uncle and I wouldn't have anyone else create my invitations because I knew without a doubt he would create everything I wanted. My fiancé and I are planning on having a beach wedding and asked uncle Steve to create a beach themed invite. When they arrived in the mail, I cried. They were so perfect and everyone that received an invite called to let me know they were gorgeous as well. I can't wait for Steve to upload a picture of the invite and RSVP to show the world how creative he is. If you want something different, new, something no one else will use, and simply to reflect your relationship, use byhandinvitations! Way to go uncle Steve!

ByHand designed and produced standout special touches that made our wedding memorable. The Save the Dates and the invitations were brilliant but they were just the starting point. Design elements and a series of French engravings were brought into every aspect of the day from programs to table numbers to menu cards to welcome baskets to the candy bar. BUT BEST OF ALL were the dance cards. The front was a die cut French engraving of a dancing couple-- the back was the back of the same couple. In between four die cuts sheets listing 40 dances and song to be played with a line for the partners name. People can;t stop talking about how special it was. we cant either.

ByHand Invitations was fantastic to work with. Steve is extremely creative and has great ideas. He was able to take all of my ideas and put them on the invitation beautifully. He was also organized and professional, unlike most very creative people I have worked with in the past. I received tons of compliments on the invitations!

ByHand Invitations helped solidify our truly unique and incredibly chic wedding day. With a custom suite of save the date cards, wedding invitations, the wedding program, and even an invitation to a party my parents threw for us two months after our wedding day, the invitations set the tone for our 5-star affair. Our guests loved them! They set the mood for the grand event--our guests anticipated our big day for months--and we wouldn't have found anything even half as good anywhere else. ByHand Invitations ran with our thematic ideas, and knocked it out of the park with each design. We even framed our save the date! One of our guests had our invitation etched onto a Tiffany & Co. plate because he loved it so much! If you want chic and unique invitations that catch the eye of your guests and set you apart from the other weddings on the scene, you must use ByHand Invites. We look forward to working with ByHand Invitations every time we throw a party.

Steve was great to work with! He worked with us to make the exact invitation that we wanted for our wedding. He was very flexible and made all the little changes we wanted until our invitation was perfect. We loved that fact that we had a hand-made, personalized invitation instead of one that we just picked out of a catalogue and put our initials on. He also helped us design all the other stationary that we needed for the wedding. I would highly recommend ByHand Invitations!!
