My wedding save-the-dates, invitations, menus, programs, placecard settings, and thank-you cards could not have been more beautiful. They were able to capture exactly what I had pictured. They responded to my questions promptly and thoroughly. I would use DBY again for any fancy event!

Wow I just read all the bad reviews and I must say my experience was different. I did have a couple of last minute problems however Kasey solve the problem right away and the result was beautiful. Kasey replied to every e-mail very fast even when she was out of town. The quality of the invitations and designs are wonderful, you can definitely tell the difference between working with her and just printed with an online company. She did everything for the shower and the wedding and I can tell you I'm a happy customer and I will recommend them. I think a good vendors is not the one that do everything the way you want but the one that helps you create something even more beautiful.

We paid a lot of money for all of our stationary. I happen to be a tax accountant and I knew that we would be finalizing everything during tax season, so I was willing to go over budget for the 'piece of mind'.

Kasey sold herself very well in the first meeting. She helped our vision of the invitations and the save the dates come true. I was really excited to find this 'one stop shop'. The end product that we received was nice, but the road to get there was very stressful.

I sent out my invites in two waves, first wave was sent early for international guests and second wave were sent in a regular time-frame. She had told me in December we might get invites in January. First week in February I emailed her and she didn't respond for three weeks. When she responded it was almost like she had forgotten I was sending the first wave of invites because she said 'we are way ahead of schedule'. When we went to proof our invites (on a Saturday in March, which was exactly what I was hoping to avoid by getting them earlier) I didn't like them at all. We made a lot of changes and the end product turned out perfect, but I felt like she threw something together without using much thought. At this point I was starting to get stressed. The morning before we picked up our invites she informs me that the ribbon we picked did not match the invitations. I was given three options, and felt like it was almost my fault the ribbon was off. I pushed to pick them up on time and really wouldn't accept anymore delays. We got them on time. However, we were using postcard RSVP's and over half of them had no return address printed. The only other thing worth mentioning is that we did not receive the proof's for the program, menu and table numbers until I demanded them a week before the wedding. Dealing with Kasey caused me so much stress that my fiancee went to her shop alone for pickups. I was too upset.

Kasey was the most condescending rude woman I have ever met.
We hired her company to print our invitations, personalized menus, wine bottle favors (that also served as place cards) and ceremony programs. We had 150 guests at the wedding. Our total cost for these services was about $4,000.
INVITES: When we went to her shop to proof the invites she had my (now) husband last name spelled wrong. She brought out a new proof and the name was STILL spelled wrong. My mother advised her it was still incorrect and Kasey snapped "OK NAN! GOD!". Printed a new proof with the proper spelling. A week later we went to pick up the 100+ invites and sure enough, my husbands name was spelled wrong and all the other changes we requested were not done. Again, she snapped on us trying to say we approved the wrong proof. Luckily my mother and I are organized and put the signed copy in front of her face. Then she blamed her workers and said it would be corrected and ready for pick up the following Friday. The final (correct product) was very nice.
PERSONALIZED MENUS: Turned out correct and nice with the exception of two guests she forgot to print for.
WINE BOTTLE FAVORS: Were absolutely horrible! They were printed on standard AVERY labels and looked as though her printer was running out of ink. The proof I approved had the guest name in a thin script font. We received them with the names in a runny black bold. On top of that she forgot to make labels for two of our guests so we had to hand write in their names and table number on the blank copies she supplied.
PROGRAMS: Turned out nice but she used a cheaper paper than what we paid for and never credited us back. We received the invites first and it was a complete nightmare leading up to getting the wine labels, programs and menus. When we finally got everything we were all completely done with Kasey and her disgusting attitude so we just dealt with the awful product received

DBY Invitations responded with the following comments:

We are so dismayed that Rachel and Nan were so disappointed in the final items provided. We do admit that we printed the wrong version of their file originally, and that is was devastating to have made a mistake like that. We can certainly understand that our red faces and incredible embarrassment would have given a poor impression of our attitudes. We are so sorry! We did rectify the situation, and tried to be as accommodating as possible. We also printed the personalized items directly from a file provided by the client. But what is most disconcerting is that when the order was signed for, it was as a satisfied client. We wish we had received constructive feedback or a request to fix the order when it was delivered, rather than just a signature. This client experience is something that we have learned from and we have put new procedures in place to ensure that proper files are printed. We regret that our hopes for a perfect event every time was not met with this order.

Kasey and DBY did all of our paper goods for our wedding this month. We couldn't have been happier with the way our invitations, programs, menus, and escort cards turned out. All of them were absolutely spectacular!
Kasey is a busy lady, and she does have a big personality. However, she is EXTREMELY nice, well-meaning, and engaged with her clients. I felt she spent far more time getting to know us and and the wedding we were planning than most of our other vendors. The company has gone through several staffing changes since we booked them, and although this did lead to some minor miscommunications, I felt that Kasey handled them extremely professionally. I never waited more than 12 hours for a return phone call from her, and I never felt like I had to remind her who I was. Kasey does have her own ideas, but that's part of what you're paying for. She is happy to change anything about her designs to meet her clients' needs.
I can't tell you how many compliments we received on the design and craftsmanship. The colors were perfect, and Kasey was happy to help incorporate the logo a friend of ours designed for us as a wedding gift. I felt like she really had a great understanding of what we were looking for, and she did her best to make our half-formed ideas come to life. When I was disappointed with how a sample invitation looked after it went through the mail, Kasey came up with a cost-effective solution that solved the problem, and I think actually added to the overall look and feel of the invitations.
When I went to pick everything up the Wednesday before our wedding, I discovered that we had told her two different colors for one of the escort card categories. Kasey had actually printed this category of cards TWICE, at her expense, once on the color we had picked out previously, and once on the color I had given her. I was astounded that a vendor would go to such lengths to keep her bride happy!

Follow your instincts...walk away.

This is what I should have done. After much research of staionary vendors, I chose Kasey because of convenience and the display products in her showroom were lovely. The Kasey you deal with prior to signing the contract and paying the first installment is far different that the Kasey you deal with after. While “abrasive” is a good term to describe her pre-signing personality, I thought I could deal with her personality just fine if the product output was as good as it seemed she was capable of. However, upon paying the deposit, she proceeded the get into an argument with my fiancé about something completely non-wedding related and I knew then we had made a terrible mistake.

Keep in mind, Kasey's “contract” only protects her. You will likely not receive what you think you are ordering contractually from her—and there is nothing you can do. When I picked up my final items as we were headed out of town for our wedding I was shocked to discover she had not followed the color scheme indicated in the contract--and it was far too late to do anything about it now. She chose to use colors which we not in my scheme and then proceed to make the situation worse by saying "that was as close" as they could get. A bold face lie.

The programs were also printed off center and looked completely unprofessional. She missed deadlines and when confronted, gave numerous lame excuses.

Following the disappointing pick up of our items, rather then spend precious quality time with our families, my fiancé and I scrambled to find another vendor who re-made everything in ONE day, in quality work which far exceeded what we paid for from DBY.

DBY Invitations responded with the following comments:

We are deeply saddened that we did not have the opportunity to assist Stephanie directly with her items or make her '5-star happy.' While we do not have any memory of any non-stationery related interactions, we are surprised to hear that she was not happy with any of her order. We do have a record of a satisfied signoff for the invitations, and we did try to go above & beyond on the programs. While they did have a brighter green ribbon than the card stock color - they were pre-tied (which was not paid for) with cut ribbon which was ordered as a single roll with her programs. We truly wish we had an opportunity to fix the problem, but she left so quickly we were unable to even offer to re-do them at our expense immediately. We do try to learn from every client, and our many outstanding reviews should indicate that this was an unusual situation, but we will endeavor to reflect specific colors in the future. We would still very much like to make it right, if there is anything that Stephanie can consider - we hope she will contact us.

I have to admit that this review has been a long time coming...

I first met Kasey three years ago, the week before one of my gal pal's weddings-- I found out the week before Megz's wedding that she planned to do Kinko's copied programs. I couldn't bear to have this happen! I contacted Kasey and (the week BEFORE my friend's wedding!) we designed the inserts for Megz's programs. Kasey rush special-ordered ivory shimmer paper to match Megz's gown and coordinated the ink to match her bridesmaids' dresses. We did a monogram at the top (and positioned it to display in the pocket notch for the pockets I was putting together). Megz was thrilled with her programs!

Because of the service I was given by Kasey and her mom, I knew exactly who I wanted to use for my papergoods when it came time for MY wedding!

I had a quirky idea for save-the-dates, and Kasey executed it flawlessly. Since I'm picky, it took a couple of drafts, which Kasey was happy to do until she knew I felt completely satisfied. In the end, I wound up with s-t-d’s that required the use of a red-lens decoder (think old-school cereal box decoders!) to decipher the hidden message-- which was that our wedding was on the horizon! Exactly what I wanted!!

THEN it was time for invites... Kasey designed complex insert cards with a repeating motif that continued when each of three insert cards overlaid one another. Her patience as I picked out colors was awesome-- and her expertise on how much is too much was invaluable. I was excited to receive tons of tiny lime green envelopes in the mail as guests replied to our invitations. My wedding is now 1.5 years in the past, and to this day, I still receive compliments.

The quality of DBY's work and Kasey's expertise and suggestions are outstanding. She is my go-to paper-guru. I cannot recommend her work enough if you are anywhere near as pick a bride as I was!

Kasey had great ideas but was never forceful with them. She let you use your imagination and fun with the entire process. The outcome was so worth it. We received so many compliments on our invitations as they were unique and it was obvious that they were custom made and not just "store bought". Would go there again in a heart beat. Everything was more than I could have imagined. I especially loved the outside mailing envelopes as they said "please deliver to" Kasey laughed because when I saw that it actually made me cry. I guess because it was something I had never seen on any invitation I have ever received. How special!!! Go there you will not be sorry

First of all Kasey was so awesome to work with. She took our ideas for our wedding invitations and made them reality. Our invitations were absolutley beautiful. We got so many compliments on our invations. She also helped us with favor boxes that look like chivari chairs and doubled as placecard holders. They were done in the same paper as our wedding invites so everything color coordinates. Plus you can't beat the price. I paid the same amount for custom designed invitations where I got to choose every detail that other brides paid for cheap looking cardboard invites out of a book. I highly recommend them!.

Kasey did a beautiful job with our invitations! I was adamant that I wanted a plum colored pocket invitation and envelope to coincide with my wedding colors. Several other vendors told me that it just wasn't available. I found DBY online and went to the store to be pleasantly surprised that they could get it for me. I had worked on ideas with another vendor prior to visiting Kasey that just couldn't hit the mark for me. The plum could have helped, but Kasey nailed the design first try out of the gate. It was beauiful! We received many facebook comments, texts, emails and phone calls on how stunning our invites were. Yes, they were pricey but we picked one of the most expensive papers for the invite border - a silver sparkle glitter and we added rhinestones to our invite too. They also did our menu cards and ceremony booklets which I was slow at getting the information in. My only negative experience with this vendor was some attitude received throughout the process. Kasey is a very confident and strong woman and sometimes it just comes across as plain rudeness. Other sites said similar when I first found out about DBY before going there. So, if you can get past not being treated like the customer at times, the work itself is beautiful. The store has plenty of samples and fonts to review which along with Kasey takes away the guess work of what to pick! Extremely helpful in itself. Walk in appointments are tough since she is busy, so be sure to make an appointment!

Amy was such a pleasure to work with, and yes - we get so busy sometimes that we forget to treat our wonderful clients with the highest level of service. We are so grateful for the wonderful feedback, and we thank her for the honest feedback. It is so nice to be reminded of what we are doing well and what we can always continue to work at. We are so pleased that she and her new husband were happy and big congratulations again!

If you want completely custom and unique invitations, Kasey can do it for you! Just give her some inspiration and the options are seemingly endless!

We had so many compliments on our invitations because they were unique, and truly a reflection of our style and interest. Our invitations, place cards, table numbers, menus and programs all tied our theme together, and we were quite pleased with the results. If you are wanting to do something very unique, please make sure you can invest the time and energy into helping Kasey create the design that you want. The more information you can give her to help her create your design - the better!

The cost of everything was more than we had budgeted for, but we got a wonderful design that was exactly what we wanted - something we could not get from catalog ordering (although you can do that with Kasey too!) She is a wonderful creative and you are paying for the expertise she can provide. If you want something unique and different to set your wedding and reception apart from all of the rest - this is the place to go!

There is one word that comes to mind - EXCEPTIONAL!!! I was overwhelmed by looking at so many types of invitation and colors that I didn't even know where to begin.

Kasey's patience and vision brought together a beautiful piece of work. We received many compliments on our invitatioins from the color to - "I've never seen anything like this" both from family and friends, as well as recent brides. I highly recommend Kasey for all invites. We'll be coming back for other invitation events.

We loved the work Kasey did for our daughter's wedding. She coordinated the invitations with the menus, place cards and table numbers so that all was seamless. Her design complimented the theme of the wedding venue. Her advice was instrumental in pulling everything together.

We came here for our wedding invitations, ceremony programs, reception menu cards, and reception placecards. We worked with Kasey who was very easy to work with and created some beautiful work for us. Everyone remarked how beautiful, unique, and dramatic our wedding invitations were (ours were printed on a beautiful cream colored paper and had a small crystal). We did our research and ended up spending the same amount of money than if we had ordered through a wedding invitation book or online. At designed by you, you truly get to design your own invitations from the design to the paper type to the colors etc. I reccommend thinking about what unique look you would want for your wedding invitations and then checking this place out. My only caveat is that Kasey seemed kinda rushed at times when we met with her and I did have to carefully review all the drafts of things she sent me for errors. Nevertheless, these issues were minor and I do not hesitate in reccommending this place. They do quality work here and really work hard to create the customized look you envision.
