We used Paula and her company for our wedding invitations for our wedding on June 22, 2014. She is very knowledgable about invitations and how to send them our properly. She even thought of specific dates, like tax season and vacations, and knew the best time to send our invitations out in order to make the best impression. She was able to customize our invitations to the exact colors and designs we wanted. She offers a beautiful office in her own home which makes for a very intimate setting when picking out something as special as wedding invitations. She makes sure to set aside enough time for her clients so that no one has to wait. I would definitely use Paula and her company again for future invitations for either baby showers or bridal showers in the future.

We originally had met with other vendors to have an idea on what to expect and there was a few that we even considered. We continued to look around and even considered piecing each part of the invitation online when we finally came across Paula's website. Since she was local we decided to check her out. We both loved her little shop that she had as opposed to being stuck in a corner office or dealing with vendors who had no time for you. She guided us in the right direction with her experience and by no means felt obligated to do anything she suggested. After the first meeting we both walked out feeling like she was the one we were going to book with. We continued to look around as we worked on booking other pieces in the process first. When it came time to make a decision for the invitations we had really noticed that trust and service take precedent over price. With that said, Paula was the same price as everyone else and we felt she would deliver on service and trust. We just got our invitations and she absolutely came through.

Working with Paula was a great. She was recommended to me by a coworker. After sorting through various invitations she picked up on my "simple" style and even suggested ribbons to be added to give my invites a finishing touch - without going overboard (for me). Loved them! She was very flexible with her time as I did need to reschedule an appt I had with her. Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for any type of invitations.

I first was introduced to the Favor-It Shop when at my first Bridal Show in the Fall of 2010. I met Courtney, Paul's daughter in law, who was so sweet and helpful that I knew the next step should be meeting with Paula for engagement party invitations. Paula worked with me (as indecisive as I am) to help me pick the perfect engagement party invitation. She was wonderful and never made me feel like I was annoying or too indecisive(which I know I am). Paula has also done my Save The Date's which came out more amazing than I could have imagined and last night I received my final proof for my wedding invitations. They looked incredible and I am anxiously awaiting to see the final product. Paula really gets a feel for her clients and their tastes and works hard to make sure that all their invitations come out perfectly. I am so glad to have worked with her during this exciting time in mine and my fiance's life. She has made the inviation process from beginning to end, enjoyable and I can't say enough wonderful things about her and The Favor It Shop. I recommend her to anyone and everyone I know who gets engaged and lives in Central Jersey!

I searched on every website and every store known to man for my wedding invitations and has so much difficulty finding the perfect ones. My wedding color was maroon, and whenever I would order samples of invitations off of websites they'd always be a different color than they were online. I was becoming increasingly frustrated, until someone referred me to Paula at the Favor-It Shop! I sat down with Paula and within a half hour she knew exactly what I wanted and knew that no book or website was going to have what I wanted. Paula was able to custom make my invitations with every detail I wanted. I matched paint chips from Home Depot to my bridesmaid's dresses and sent it to Paula and she made my invitation the exact same color as the paint sample! I'd say there probably isn't much Paula can't do! I had a lot of fun, yes fun, with Paula and she made my invitation purchasing process a great experience! She also printed my envelopes and made my rehearsal dinner invitations as well. In the end I spent more money than I had anticipated on my invitations, but they came out so perfectly and they were exactly what I wanted, they were well worth every penny spent! If you're struggling to find the perfect invitations online, it's worth the trip to the Favor-It Shop!

Oh, I love her. She rememebered that the wedding is about what I like, not what my parents like. She was frank and blunt, but not rude. I had to deal with the invitation wording, which was difficult because my mom refused to come or let anyone from her side of the family come (because I invited my dad - she likes my husband just fine). Paula was practically my therapist in addition to my invitation & favor provider.

THe invitations were the most beautiful I've ever seen. They were expensive, but that's what I picked. She has a range of prices. Hundreds, if not thousands. I know she gave us competitive prices because I looked them up on the internet. She gave me the best prices, and I didn't have to pay the high shipping costs. More importantly, I didn't have to search the entire web for favors. I told her what I wanted and she came up with several options that were just right.

I was told she would go by any budget my budget was $400 well $800 later it wasn't in my budget!
She took out books and she these were in my price range but they obviously weren't.
I love my invitations but I felt it was a piece of paper I wanted cheap. Not worth it.

Favor-It Shop responded with the following comments:

It saddens me to hear that Amy and Daniel were dissatisfied by their purchase.

Let's clarify some of the statements she made which are not true: For one thing, the total cost of their stationery was $668.41 which included the following items: 100 of each: invitations $177.90, lined inner envelopes ($21.60 which she didn't have to order), return address ($41.00 which she could have used stickers), rsvp card and printed envelope $117.90, reception card $105.90 and thank you's $105.90 (because they weren't getting them with the photographer), emailed proofs $38, shipping $16.48 and sales tax $43.73 which came to $668.41 not the inflated $800 mentioned. We also added Swarovski crystals to their invitations at no charge. The invitations she picked were from Carlson Craft which were not expensive and the cardstock qualtiy was very good.

If she wanted CHEAP, then she could've ordered CHEAP. No one forced her to purchase these or any invitations with us. There were others available, that cost less, but she didn't like them. She wanted the ones she picked. And so she ordered them. We are not high pressure sales here.

When you break it down, Amy chose to order professionally printed invitations. The cost was not unreasonable for all the pieces she got.

Our consultation is FREE with no strings attached. If Amy's budget was $400 then she should have stuck to it. If Amy felt the cost of the stationery that she selected was out of her budget, she didn't have to order it. She could have gone elsewhere, ordered them over the internet or even printed them herself with a DIY kit.

My wedding invitations came out beautifully, and Paula has a large selection and really knows her business. She patiently helped us pick out and customize invitations and that was great. However, be warned that once you place your order, the level of customer service goes way down. She will nickel and dime you, and she won't answer phone calls, leading to obnoxiously long email chains to make really simple changes.

I totally agree with the other review that stated that she speaks to you like you are a child. She was so incredibly rude and sarcastic. She had an attitude from the beginning and after 20 minutes my mom and I walked out of the appointment. She was trash talking other customers as well. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS NASTY WOMAN!! I never write reviews, but I felt passionately about this because every customer should be treated with a certain level of respect, especially for such an important event like your wedding.

Favor-It Shop responded with the following comments:

Kathleen’s mom and I were sitting at my desk viewing an invitation book while Kathleen was at the other side of the showroom looking for more books. She came with a picture of an invite from a discontinued book that her friend showed her and only wanted THAT invitation. I showed her 8 books from the same vendor, but her heart was set on that invite which was no longer available.

Several minutes went by, when she approached us and shouted “I DON’T LIKE BEING BOSSED AROUND.” We looked up in astonishment not knowing where this came from. I don’t know why she had this outburst but she continued to rant. It was at that time that it was agreed that she should leave.

We pride ourselves in working very hard for ALL of our clients.

Deanna Stawnychy called requesting Ukranian translated invitations. We made a phone call on her behalf to see if they could be printed and returned her call promptly. We never hung up on her and certainly didn't talk to her like a child.
