I worked with Stephanie to design my save the dates and Wedding invitations. She was great to work with and very knowledgeable. She knew exactly what I wanted and was able to guide me to the perfect invitations. I met with a number of custom invitation vendors and I feel like I got the same value for a much better price. Highly recommend getting your invitations here.

I worked with Stephanie at Greetings & Readings for all of my invitation needs from engagement invitations to Save the Dates to Wedding Invitations to Rehearsal Dinner Invitations. I cannot say enough about how helpful Stephanie was throughout the entire process. She paid close attention to detail, she was very thorough, and always polite and cheerful. G&R is a great option for invitations because they can print both in-house and they also have the option of ordering from outside companies (I used both options). G&R is great because they have a wide selection (some very affordable, but they also have the option of more expensive paper such as Crane if that is something you may be interested in). In a nutshell, I would highly recommend G&R. They have a great selection, great value (sometimes coupons can be used), and great customer service. Stephanie was a true pleasure to work with. Selecting invitations was one of the easiest parts of the whole process due, in large part, to G&R and Stephanie.

Stephanie from the Custom Printing Department at Greetings and Readings was great. She was very friendly, professional, and very responsive. I'm sure I could have gotten my invitations somewhere else cheaper, but with the quality and service at Greetings and Readings, it's well worth the extra cost.

No problems getting the invitations from Greetings and Readings in Hunt Valley. You should follow their advice and get 25 extra invitations with the initial order. You will be surprised that you actually use them. And, as they explain, it is a lot less expensive to order the extra ones in the beginning. Lots of compliments on the invitation, black folder, script and duo font color, i.e. black and gold. MOB

Looking for invitations was one of the most difficult parts of the planning for me. I wish I had found Greetings & Readings first! Stephanie was so helpful and called to make a personal connection even when I ordered online. She was available for all of my questions. The invitations turned out perfectly and were just what I wanted. They shipped quickly and the price was very reasonable!

Overall, I was satisfied with my wedding invitations. They were a little more then I wanted to spend but they turned out great. My only other complaint-it was very overwhelming. There are tons and tons of invitations to look at and it's exhausting. Hopefully you go there with an open mind or and idea of what your looking for and a few free hours.

No complaints. They were very helpful and the process was easy. They had a ton of different albums to choose from, including some that were inexpensive but still very nice and fashionable. We recommend making an appointment, but they are still helpful if you walk in.

Greetings & Readings of Hunt Valley responded with the following comments:

Thank you for the high marks on our customer service, but we're sorry to see you were disappointed with the final costs.

Regarding this project, pocket invitations are a little pricier than most standard invitations. With all of our jobs, we also tell customers to order a bit more than they need just in case they add more people to their list or if anything comes up. Karen decided against this, but later had to come back in to order 25 more and found out it was a lot more for just those 25 extra she needed. We also did the addressing here in the store and stayed open later to take the initial order. So, to get this kind of review makes us a little upset because of all the work done.

We offer selections from many different albums with totally different price points. If a bride finds something in our higher end books and it is out of her price range, we are usually able to find something similar in a lower end book.

For most orders, we are with the customer for about an hour or more. When you order online, you are looking at a computer screen and have no one to help you, and there are some people out there who have no idea about etiquette rules. When brides make the appointment, that is typically the first question they ask, "Will you be able to help with our wording?" There have been plenty of wedding and party orders where customers had ordered online and they didn't like the way it turned out, so they came to us. They have been returning customers since then and refuse to go back online. We've even have had people get invitations printed at another store and they come to us because a friend of theirs came here and said what wonderful customer service we have.

We're sorry to be so wordy here, but hopefully this clears up a bit about what goes into the cost of each order. We want others to realize that we always work with our customers to try to fit something into their budget, and Karen, you should know that we'll be here to help you with that, too, the next time you might need anything for a party or other event.

Not impressed with them at all, which was surprising to me. I expected much more. Their selection is quite large, but they are somewhat limited in what they can do as far as in-store printing. The girls that was helping me wasn't very helpful and didn't give me correct information...(I learned later from talking to another worker). The invitations turned out OK, but it was a big ordeal and considering the high price I paid, I would have expected to be less work on my part. I will go with a different place in the future for any stationary needs.

Our experience with G&R was not the best. We had to go back and forth with the team there many times to get our invitation correct because G&R sent a number of proofs with typos and spacing problems. To make matters worse, the final proof we received had a typo in it that was not even in the previous copy we received from them; meaning in the process of sending the copy to the printer, someone in their office inadvertently changed the invitation. Needless to say, I did not like having to scrutinize and copy edit our wedding invitations so heavily. In the end, however, our invitations turned out beautifully.

Greetings & Readings in Hunt Valley, MD is where we purchased our invitations & response cards from. We did have a few small issues with them that they did successfully resolve. We sat down and viewed their invitations from a large selection of books available. We fell in love with a tropical themed invitation. When our response cards were ordered we were not asked which font we wanted to use and assumed it would be the one shown in the book. The response cards arrived and it was a different font which was very difficult to read. They did resolve the issue for us however we did have to pay for part of the response cards to be reprinted which I didn't feel we should have had to do. Greetings & Readings prices I feel are a little high but was willing to pay a little more to get the invitations we wanted.
