Creatively Engaged began as all great adventures do, quite accidentally. Designing websites and the occasional invitation, graphic designer Alisa Donohue was the go-to for her many engaged friends for unique and inspired designs. Stationery design started out as a hobby but as more and more friends and friends of friends began contacting her a light bulb went off. “The feedback was overwhelming…I knew I was on to something," says Donohue.

Today Creatively Engaged is a one-stop-shop for unique stationery and wedding essentials.

Whether it’s the perfect invitation, wedding day printable or favor, Creatively Engaged designs are a true representation of their clients’ vision, style & personality. We look forward to the opportunity to create original stationery that brings life to each brides' special day. Read less

Alisa was such a pleasure to work with. She allowed me to express my ideas which were often complicated and helped me sort through my visions so to speak, so that my dream invitation could truly corm to life. After a few months, she really did just that... From texture, to fabric, font, color scheme and wording... My invitation was vintage inspired and completely unique. She really created my vision of the perfect invitation. Everyone kept asking me if they were custom made because they'd never seen anything like them. I couldn't brag enough about the heart and soul put into them. Thanks Alisa!

Alisa at Creatively Engaged was so great at interpreting our style and image for our wedding day and translating it onto an invitation that we just loved! She made something for us I had not seen in any paper stores/websites- it was current and paper-friendly, yet classy/elegant. She truly is creative and great to work with- so flexible and quick to respond to our emails. Most of all, she was able to provide us with something unique that we loved within our budget. We got digital calligraphy and noticed a slight mess up on one RSVPs,and Alisa immediately reached and offered to have things reprinted, etc.. She had provided us with a few extras so it was no biggie, but she clearly is passionate about the quality of the work and has been a great help! I have already and would DEFINITELY recommend Creatively Engaged to future brides! :-)

Alisa and her team are amazing. She understood exactly what we were trying to convey and executed it with perfection. We live in California and CE is based in New Jersey and the distance was not an issue for them at all!! Alisa and I met for coffee once while I was visiting my parents and she just knew from then on what we were looking for. We will be using Creatively Engaged again in the future and highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for beautiful and unique invites. I couldn't be any happier with ours. Thank you so so much!!

Creatively Engaged helped to set the perfect tone for my sister's bridal shower, with the lovely invitations and matching thank-you notes. I gave her just a few basic ideas about the event and my sister's personality and she delivered a timeless, classy and elegant design that was right on the mark! Working with CE was an absolute pleasure and I definitely plan to do future business when I need any kind of stationery.

Creatively Engaged provided all of the invitations, menu cards, favor tags, and food and drink tags for my daughter's first birthday party. To say I was pleased with the service, quality, guidance, and responsiveness would be a drastic understatement. I was ecstatic! The quality of the paper was fabulous and the design was exactly what I wanted. They were very patient with me as it took me a few different tries to know exactly what I wanted. I really appreciated how quickly proofs would come back. I was working on a tight deadline and never had to wait to see the designs. They were also very helpful in making sure I chose the right paper for each item. My guests were very, very impressed. I will use Creatively Engaged for all of my future party needs. Hats off to a company that can make a very picky party planner this happy!

I had the pleasure of meeting Alisa of Creatively Engaged (CE) through a friend who had used her for her wedding stationary. Her stationary was beautiful and so unique, unlike any I'd ever seen. There was no doubt that I, too, would use CE for my big day. Alisa is nothing short of fabulous, a true visionary. She listens to your ideas and really takes it to the next level. She knows what you want before you do! She is very personable, and respects all budgets. I cant tell you how many compliments I received on all of my stationary. She is so passionate about her work, and it shows! There is nothing cookie cutter about CE, everything is unique, ornate and amazing. Dont hesitate to call or contract with CE- they are fabulous! Thanks again Alisa for everything! Love, Jessica

This was the way to go for me when it came to invitations. I'm a graphic designer myself, so I'm particular on what i wanted for my wedding. I became very frustrated after not being able to make my invitations my own when we were looking at card shops. Its an AS-IS business. Then there's Alisa! She's the owner/designer and came to my home for a consultation right after giving her a call. Your experience with Alisa will be very personal and with that, she gives a personal touch to the invitations. Her paper quality is exceptional. I wanted a ribbon tied on the invite and she worked through a few places in order to get a ribbon that matched my purple for the wedding. Overall great experience and would recommend Alisa for all discerning brides!

We LOVED our invitations from Creatively Engaged! We got so many comments on how beautiful and different the invitations were. We loved that Creatively Engaged allows for total customization with different paper colors, ink colors, and font choices. I was able to make the invitations exactly how I pictured them without figuring out all the measurements and folds myself. My wedding colors were chocolate brown and a coffee color, so finding a pre-printed invitation would have been really difficult, but with Creatively Engaged I was able to include a personalized monogram created just for us and the exact colors I wanted. Creatively Engaged also created our table numbers, rehearsal dinner invitations and thank you cards. Everything came out wonderful. Alisa the owner is very professional and personable. She made the process fun and easy.
