YOUR PERSONAL
WEDDING INVITATION SPECIALIST
IN SYRACUSE, NY!



Invitations and Assistance for ALL of Life's Major Events, specializing in Weddings, Showers, Graduations, Anniversaries, New Baby and more! Formal invitations aren't something you do everyday... but "I" do. I've got over 35 years experience in the printing industry, with a specialty in invitation design, wording, fonts, etiquette and addressing services.

I truly love what I do, and offer free, personal assistance. Let me save you some headaches and help you decide which items you'll need (and don't need). My clients are so thankful to have this help because... trying to order online or without professional help is just too darn confusing. Just read some of my reviews on Wedding Wire.

My studio is located on Taft Rd. in North Syracuse, NY. Hours are 7 days a week, but “by appointment”, so that I can provide each individual customer as much (or as little) assistance as they need. You can view, touch and feel 1000's of invitations from budget (starting at $50) to Contemporary, Traditional, Pockets, Letterpress and more. Or I can help you create your own unique, one-of-a-kind, custom invitation.

You can start by visiting www.Creative-Assistant.com. Just click on my online stores (Carlson Craft and Birchcraft) to browse the varieties. Then call (315) 243-1122, or email: kathy@creative-assistant.com, to set up an appointment.

Looking forward to meeting and working with you! Read less

Kathy is a blessing! She did an amazing job making the invitations, place cards, and programs for our wedding. She was easy to get ahold of, flexible, affordable, and worked well with us to make sure all of the aforementioned items were just the way we envisioned them. I plan to use her in the future for other invitation needs and highly recommend her services!

We used this vendor for our Save the Dates -- soooo many options. And they are very flexible in that if there is something that was some how left out of the the giant books that they will work with you in creating your own (which is what we did). Even when we thought there was a problem, Kathy was immediately there solving the problem, which was unneccessary because they were perfect from the beginning. She was easy to reach by email and by phone. Looking forward to having her do our invitations as well!

I had my wedding invitations designed and printed by Kathy, she was wonderful from start to finish! I didn't have a huge budget, but she was able to work with it and create a beautiful and fun invitation. I would highly recommend using Celebrations In Ink!

Kathy was great to work with. My fiance and I wanted to design our own invitations and she was the only person we could find who would allow us to do so, and stay within budget. Her experience in the invitation and design market really helped to make our simple invitation into something beautiful - exactly what we wanted. She was very prompt in replying to emails throughout the whole process and I would gladly work with her again in the future.

Corri, thank you so much. There's no reason you can't make the artwork for your very own invitation. It means so much more when you put a little bit of yourselves into your special event. So glad I could help. It was such a pleasure to work with you both. Looking forward to working with you again in the future sometime.

A teacher friend of mine recommended Kathy when I was looking for someone to help me with wedding invitations. I have to say, I am so glad I went with the recommendation. My experience working with Kathy was wonderful. She helped me choose the perfect invitations, and patiently answered all my questions along the way. In addition, she did the programs for my ceremony and did a beautiful job with them, incorporating my wedding colors and designs. I was impressed with how quickly she got them done, and yet they looked awesome. Kathy was also was my go to person for wedding favor tags for my guests, and created some artwork that mirrored the design on my invitation. It was so nice working with her, and she made what could have been a super stressful part of the wedding, easy and enjoyable!

We ordered wedding invitations from Kathy for our upcoming wedding in June. She's extremely nice and very professional. We told her our budget of spending and she helped us to find the invitations within our budget. She has all kinds of samples of different prices. I'm pretty sure that there is one that suit you. We are very happy with our order and we will definitely order other products from her for other occasions.

WOW!!!! I cannot say enough positive things about this woman. Kathy is so easy to work with; she is flexible, professional, accommodating, pleasant....I could go on and on! She made suggestions without being too pushy and worked so hard to get me what I wanted. She is also very responsive, which I think is important when you are planning a wedding.

Now, on to the invitation. I consider myself a difficult bride, because I walked in to meet Kathy knowing exactly what I wanted. I (unlike Kathy) was not flexible, and I had a vision that I was not willing to change. However, Kathy EXCEEDED my vision and produced the most beautiful invitation! Even I was blown away at how gorgeous they turned out. So many of my guests texted me after they received them commenting on how beautiful and unique the invitations were. They really were PERFECT! Even though it was my vision, Kathy made it happen.

I feel so fortunate to have found Kathy and worked with her on producing my dream wedding invitation. In addition to her demeanor and skill, her prices were reasonable, and I appreciated that she gave me options to bring down the cost wherever possible. She understands everyone has a budget. I met with several people in the Syracuse area before choosing Kathy and thank god I didn't settle. She is amazing and I would HIGHLY recommend her to all brides! This woman can do it all!!

I can not thank Kathy enough for all the hard work she did with both our wedding invitations! I went to Kathy with an idea for our wedding invitation that was much different then your typical invite, and she blew it out of the water. Everyone said how great they were and creative. She took my description and put it into an invitation perfectly.

Thank you Kathy for dealing with my difficult self! The crab was perfect!
I will definitely be contacting her again for any party invitation I have to do. Invitations turn around was very good, and even with higher quantities needed.

Wow! Such a nice surprise, Jenn. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my services. Your visions were so fun to work with... even if I "did" have to perfect that ol' crab. Your ideas were amazing and so fun to bring them to life. Thanks so much for letting me be a part of your destination wedding and upcoming reception. So glad I got to see pictures of your big day. Congrats!
