Charlene at Empress paper crafts made sure that our invitations were perfect and exactly as we wanted them. She patiently went through all the changes we wanted made. She was genuinely excited to be a part of our wedding and in designing our invitations.

I would highly recommend her services to any couple looking for someone who truly loves what they do. Charlene has tons of colors and paper options, and will work with you to make new and unique designs.

Thanks to the whole team from Marylou and Jorge

I went to Empress Paper Crafts after having met with two other wedding invitation printers.

At the other printers/designers I was shown book after book of preset designs which were nice but not exactly what I was looking for. When I inquired about custom work the other shops quoted me prices that were way out of my budget.

When I went to Empress it was a completely different experience. All of her work is custom and designed specifically for the bride sitting in front of her, so every invitation is one of a kind. She listened to the colors and styles we were looking for, what our budget was, and our timeline. She broke down the design process and helped us see what each element cost making sure we not only stayed within our budget, but also got a beautiful invitation. She was patient with us when sending the proofs of our invitation and always quick in making any changes we asked.

It was an absolute pleasure working with everyone at Empress Paper Craft and the invitations turned out better than we ever could have imagined! But the best part is that our costs were lower for custom work through Empress, with more design elements, than what they would have been for preset designs with the other invitation studios. Saving money on anything for our wedding is cause for celebration!

I will be going back to Empress to get our seating chart, menu and place cards, favor boxes, and ceremony programs printed because I know they will turn out beautifully. :-)

I highly recommend Charlene and her team. They were responsive, professional and flexible to work with. My fiance and I had contacted many invitation vendors prior to meeting with Charlene and many of the vendors were overpriced or unresponsive. Charlene spent over an hour with us at our first appointment to discuss design. She was very honest and offered us advice as to how we could cut costs. The great thing about this vendor is that you can custom design every aspect of your invitation and do not have to work off of an invitation template.

Our final invitations turned out amazing! We love them. Charlene really made us feel as though she cared about our invitations and wedding, which I have found to be very uncommon in the wedding industry. We can't thank Charlene and her team enough for their great work!

Empress Paper Crafts is a prime example of how you want excellence through service. Nothing short of a miracle worker, Charlene (owner) simply was nothing short of absolutely amazing.

Even though I am probably the harshest critic for most things (i.e. food, sports, restaurants), it is rare that I would post anything positive - only because people tend to complain and advertise negative things. So, I took this rare moment to provide my thoughts/feedback on my experience.

As all wedding couple have budget, I was very specific what I wanted, when I wanted it, how I wanted it, and how much I was willing to spend. Not only were all these expectations met, it was exceeded. We were actually given a better price than all of the professional larger name competition out there...not to mention the fact that her quality of work was much more impressive. Her quality of design, creativity, attention to detail was exactly what we needed. She was humble about her work but, also very dedicated to it. Charlene provided constant communication and was always accommodating - even when we were difficult.

If she were in a regular service industry (i.e. clothing store), I would be a returning client! Charlene was an absolute treat to work with, and I can definitely say that I will be referring her to friends. Thank you Charlene for all your terrific work and I appreciate that extra effort you put in to making our invitations special. All the best!

I was lucky enough to win $500 worth of free invitations from Empress Paper Crafts through a contest on Style My Pretty. I do not have a single bad thing to say about dealing with Charlene. Since the office is located in Markham and I am in London Ont, I did not have the time to make the trip to the office. I emailed Charlene with a general idea of what I was looking for in my wedding. She immediately emailed me back with inspiration pictures to ensure we were on the same page. I didn't give her much direction. Charlene offered to Skype with me so I could see some options, but I am not that picky. I let her take the creative reigns. I was not disappointed! I had such a hard time deciding between the two designs she provided me with. She came up with the idea of using the second invitation design as table numbers. Genius! I received email replies at all times of day, even late at night. The quality of the product and service will not disappoint you. I have received a lot of positive feedback about how amazing my invitations are.

We are very satisfied with the product and service. Charlene is very patient and professional.

Of all the vendors I have used for my wedding, Empress Paper Crafts is the one I would recommend most. Charlene was amazing to work with. She spent time with me in person, over the phone and by email to ensure that my vision came through. I am so pleased with the final results, my invitations look incredible! Reasonable prices, too, for something so personalized!

Charlene of Empress Paper Crafts made the difficult and stressful task of selecting the wedding invitation an easy event.
She took the time to get ask questions in order to get a good idea of the type of wedding (e.g. traditional or contemporary), the wedding theme, and my vision for the invitations. She then worked with me to select the right colour scheme and pattern for the invitations. Having invitation samples on display also helped in making the choice easier.
I was also pleased that Charlene offered to help with other items relating to the wedding preparations,such as table setting cards and other wedding reception accessories.

Thank You for the excellent customer service!

I will most certainly recommend Empress Paper Cards to my friends, family and coworkers.

I'm so glad I found Empress Paper Crafts for our wedding invitations! After an unsuccessful attempt to DIY my own wedding invitations, I was happy and relieved to have some guidance over this process and I could not be happier with how my invitations turned out. I definitely could not have done this on my own!
They were patient and attentive with understanding what I wanted and the prices were resonable compared to a lot of invitation vendors out there who are charging an arm and a leg for their products!

Charlene and Empress Paper Crafts were a pleasure to work with! They were very professional and met with us initially to help us figure out the look and feel of our ideal wedding invitation. From design to paper selection, we were happy with our choice and the feedback we got in the process. We were able to make a few revisions to our proofs with no fuss from Empress Paper Crafts, and the invitations were completed on time and to perfection! The invitations are reasonably priced for the level of quality, so if you're looking for custom-designed, fancy invitations, then I would recommend Empress Paper Crafts!

Charlene was fantastic. She was really able to accommodate our needs with a very customized order and a design that needed to reflect traditional and contemporary aspects. Furthermore the final product was elegant and she pays a lot of attention to detail. The prices are also very reasonable when compared to other vendors that we looked into. We highly recommend her!

Having stumbled across Empress Paper Crafts through searching endlessly online, I was able to meet with an extraordinary wedding invitation designer. Having met with various vendors, and given my meticulous character, I was relieved to finally move forward with someone who was able to instantly take my intricate design concept and vision and bring it to life. My wedding invitations are incredibly stunning!

Empress is definitely the most pleasant, responsive and approachable vendor that I have had the pleasure of working with. I will also be having all of my day of stationary created by Empress along with any future stationary needs. Charlene is not only a talented woman, her patience, kindness and genuine concern for achieving a final product that is nothing short of her hardest efforts and highest quality, makes her truly remarkable.

Charlene has nothing but my highest recommendations!

My finance & I recently had the opportunity to work with Empress Paper Crafts. Charlene was amazing and a pleasure to work with. She took the time to get to get to know us, our likes, our vision for our wedding etc. etc. As a result of our conversation, she was able to propose and create a wedding invitation that was perfect for our special day and reflective of who we are. I’m extremely happy with the customer services she provided us, making us feel special along the way. She even created a separate invitation to be sent overseas in Italian.

I invite anyone who is looking for an excellent experience and a custom invitation to contact Empress Paper Craft. If you don’t want to end up with a “standard” or “cookie-cutter” look and feel, then Charlene’s your person!

I was extremely impressed with our finished product which came in on budget and ahead of schedule. I now look forward to working with Empress Paper Craft on my other wedding stationary needs.

Thanks Charlene for a great job!! :)

Charlene at Empress Paper Crafts is definitely by far the most delightful and responsive vendor we have had to deal with during our wedding planning! The unique thing about Empress Paper Crafts is that Charlene will take the time to fully tailor the invitations to your taste/requirement/liking. You will have a personalized consultation where you get so see first hand how involved and interested she is to help you create a one of a kind invite. No cookie cutter templates or looking through 100 of the same invitations at her quaint shop. All of her samples were fresh, unique, and personalized to each couple. We had a basic idea of the colours of our invite, but Char was able to put together a few ideas and create stunning drafts that we could not picture initially. The other great thing about Empress is you'll get a few drafts to change up some details and also get to see the actual card before finalizing printing. Don't get me wrong, if you want cookie cutter, go somewhere else.. and pay more! Go to Empress if you really want unique and customization. Char was able to produce stunning invitations in a reasonable time frame. We will recommend her to any of our friends or family that are looking for invitations. A++, great communication, would do business again! :)

Charlene really took the time to understand my vision and incorporate the intricate details of my decor into the wedding invitation design. In the end, we got an exquisite pocket style invitation where the front of the pocket was constructed with beautiful black lace. It was so unique and I'm still getting compliments on our wedding invitation to this day! Prices are very reasonable for such a customized product and excellent service. Would definitely recommend to everyone!

We found Charlene from Empress Paper Crafts by chance on Style Me Pretty Canada and we are so thrilled that she created our wedding invitations! Charlene is by far one of the BEST vendors we've worked with to date and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to future couples and anyone else who needs beautiful custom stationary. She is creative, dedicated, responsive, and professional, and we are so happy to support her growing business.

Our wedding invitations turned out beautifully. Admittedly we are not that creative...Charlene listened to a vague description of our vision for the wedding and she took that and created a gorgeous and elegant invitation that we can't wait to send to our family and friends. Charlene was incredibly accommodating throughout the design process and worked with our tight timeline. From the initial design to the invitations themselves, she delivered everything sooner than promised and the quality of the final product greatly exceeded our expectations.

Overall, Charlene was fantastic to work with. Not only is she creative and has a great eye for design, she was also very fair and did not try to oversell us on anything we didn't need. We believe she offers a beautiful product at a great value if you're looking for custom design work. Thanks again Charlene!

The whole experience of planning a wedding is extremely difficult in regards to all the decisions that have to be made. Finding Empress Paper Crafts was one of the easiest and best decisions we made. As soon as we met Charlene, and sat down with her to discuss options, we knew we were in the right place! Her work is absoloutely beautiful and custom. She is so professional, talented, accomodating, extremely reasonably priced for the quality of invitation we received, and provides top notch service. My mom even got my bridal shower invitations through her, which were custom designed to match the wedding invites. The amount of compliments we've received on the wedding invitations is amazing. It sealed the deal even more that we made the right decision. I would recommend anyone, anytime to Charlene. We even ordered table numbers and seating cards! She is amazing and I can't say enough great things about her work and the quality of service we received. I would also be sure to go back to her for any other big events that need invites! THANKS EMPRESS PAPER CRAFTS! YOU ARE AMAZING!!!!

It's been an absolute pleasure working with Charlene at Empress Paper Crafts! She has been, by far, the most flexible and accommodating vendor I have worked with throughout my planning process. I gave her a fairly short timeline to work with and she pulled it off so effortlessly and professionally! She's always quick to respond to my calls and e-mails and her pricing is very reasonable.

I wanted to create very classic and elegant custom designed invitations and Charlene worked closely with me to ensure that I got the precise look that I wanted. She listened to my ideas and offered many suggestions (from paper and font colour selections, to invitation wording) that were exactly to my tastes. Her attention to all the little details is what sets her apart in producing high quality and beautiful invitations. I have received nothing but high appraise from my guests!

Empress Paper Crafts is without a doubt one of our favourite wedding vendors. Charlene is such a pleasure to work with. She is so creative, professional and approachable. From the moment we stepped into her studio for our first consultation, I knew we were going to be hit with a blast of amazing art. Charlene’s work is just so top notch! You can really tell by the craftsmanship of these invitations that they are assembled with care and with high quality materials. During the planning process Charlene sat with us while we chose our colour palette, gave her honest opinion, absorbed our ideas, and was very responsive with emails. We thought we had a good idea of how our invites would turn out. However, Charlene totally exceeded our expectations and we are incredibly happy with how our custom lovebird laser-cut pocket wedding invitations turned out!! Our wedding invitation will now be framed in our new home as a keepsake of our special day. Every time we look at it we will remember not only one of the best days of our lives but also our great experience with Empress Paper Crafts. We can’t thank you enough Charlene, for helping us set the tone of our wedding day! :)

My Fiance and I wanted to get invitations that are unique and caters to our style for an afforadable price. Our friend recommended Charlene and upon the first meeting, we knew that we would work well together. she is very creative, passionate, accomodating, and very flexible with meeting times. She was able to take what we wanted (and we're both not very artsy people) and translate it into something we love. Charlene was very professional, kept her word on delivery dates, and replied to emails quickly. As we were late in getting our invitations in, Charlene was able to turn our invitations around in 2 weeks time! She was a pleasure to work with and would highly recommend her to anyone who's looking for custom wedding invitations.

As we were late in getting our invitations in, Charlene was able to turn our invitations around in 2 weeks time! She was a pleasure to work with and would highly recommend her to anyone who's looking for custom wedding invitations. Read less

For any brides-to-be on the hunt for exquisite invitations check them out. I promise you won't be disappointed!!

Since we were not the most creative people, we had some trouble deciding on our invite design. Empress Paper Crafts asked us for some ideas and created a few beautiful prototypes for us to choose from. They were all spectacular, the hardest one was choosing only one! Empress Paper Crafts listened to our suggestions and input and coordinated our needs to produce a sophisticated design that exceeded our expectations. Thank you Empress Paper Crafts for helping us create the invite of our dreams!

We were extremely happy with Empress Paper Crafts' service. My bride-to-be and I aren't exactly the most creative people in this world and Charlene was very delightful to work with. We presented her with our colours and theme and she provided some great suggestions on what she could do. Proofs of our invite were provided shortly and we made comments on them which she incorporated into our final product. Communication was easy as she would get back to us promptly on any questions we had. We were so happy with our final product that we have begun to recommend Charlene's service to all our friends. She clearly delivered an A+ invite for us.

I can be a pretty picky bride but Empress really exceeded my expectations (unlike many other wedding vendors!). They were very intuitive with my vision, and was able to apply their creativity without following the typical cookie-cutter wedding invitations we've all seen. Empress can take an idea and run with it (while respecting your budget too) - you won't regret working with them & I'd definitely use them again for future stationery needs.

We hired Charlene to take care of invitations, table place cards, table numbers, menus, and the seating chart for our event. I highly recommend Charlene's work over all others for the following reasons:

1. Charlene takes her work very seriously. Her attention to every detail to these handmade pieces makes the end product impressive by any standard. Each piece is treated like art, and you can quickly see the level of care and attention she takes in her work.
2. She has a natural sense of style that extends into her passion for paper and design. Charlene will spend the time to get to know what would really suit your event, and your character, to provide a customized product.
3. The whole experience was very structured, from the first meet to talk about styles, colors and overall atmosphere, to actual design drafting and material selection, we felt reassured that everything paper related would be taken care of.

We had a very specific style in mind, and Charlene spent the time to understand us and get every last detail to come up with a design. After only one round of designs, we were able to go ahead with our entire event paper work - it couldn't have turned out better.

Thanks Charlene!

Charlene was an absolute pleasure to work with. We came to her late in the game, and we gave her a very small time frame to work with, but she went above and beyond to ensure that her designs worked for us. From being extremely responsive, working late hours, asking the right questions, and to providing valuable advice, Charlene was everything that we could ask for in a wedding invitation designer. Highly recommended.

Charlene was so fabulous creating the destination wedding invitations of our dreams! We did a boarding pass style invite with a pocket fold and envelope. She was flexible with all my millions of requests and she designed and created a flawless final product. I would recommend her services to anyone. We will certainly use Empress again for any future paper needs!
