My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Arlene at Invitations and Company for our wedding invitations. She was very patient with us as we contemplated the many options available over several visits. Together, we found a letter-press design that was modern and classy. We had the invitations mounted on thick colored paper (that were carefully assembled by Arlene) to give a nice border. My aunt came with us on our last visit to Arlene and was equally impressed by the work she did...so much so that she had a number of written correspondences with Arlene afterwards thanking her. Many of our guests called to tell us or our families how great the invitations looked. We would highly recommend Arlene for any professional paper product needs you may have. She is very trustworthy and willing to help!

We used Arlene at Invitations & Company to do our wedding invitation set. She was extremely friendly and a pleasure to work with throughout our several visits in the process. The wedding invites turned out absolutely great, just exactly how we wanted them, and we got tons of compliments from our guests on how wonderful they looked. We also used her envelope address printing services and everything turned out perfectly without any issues.

Arlene was extremely helpful for the following reasons:
1) She knew all the social norms that go along with invites, what's appropriate, what's not, what's normal, where there's flexibility, etc, saving us a ton of time researching "invite protocol".
2) She had a great eye for spacing and how to lay out text on the invite/info/rsvp card in a manner that looked good. This is very hard to do well on your own, so it was great having a professional do it for us!
3) She had great ideas for how to word things succinctly but clearly while still maintaining our voice in the invites.
4) When we would ask her, she offered her professional opinion on what looked good and what wording might sound nice, but did not force it upon us and was happy to do whatever we wanted. It was really great having her huge knowledge base and experience at our disposal while still getting to make the invites our own.
5) She had a million invite examples in her office on display as well as books and books of samples, so if you have no idea where to start you will be able to hone in on your style in just minutes in her office, as we did.

Overall, we loved how our invites turned out and she made it a fun and easy process for us. As far as price, we felt that the invites turned out to be a great value for how fantastic they looked. We would definitely recommend Invitations & Company to anyone else in Boston!

Arlene is wonderful! I came to her with no idea of what I wanted and she was so patient with me throughout the process. She took the time to educate me and was able to quickly narrow down the options based on what I said I liked/didn't like. We created a suite of save the dates and matching invitations. We couldn't be happier with the experience of working with Arlene and with the final product!

Arlene did our wedding invitations in 1994.
Arlene did our kids' birth announcements in the early 2000s.
Arlene just did our oldest's bat mitzvah invitations.
I would not go to anyone else. She is the consummate professional, has a discerning eye, loads of options, and great advice all-around from having been in the business for decades. I am very picky, detail-oriented, and have a strong sense of style. She handled all of this personally, promptly, and with great aplomb. She is simply the best.

Arlene is incredible – she made the invitation process an absolute joy! She attentively listened to what I had in mind and showed me numerous examples to help me further figure out my stylistic preferences. When I decided I wanted to do our invitation suite in hand calligraphy, she supported me as we worked to find the calligrapher and get the style just right. Of all the wedding vendors we worked with, Arlene was by far the most impressive. When our “Save the Dates” arrived with a tiny error due to a printing issue, she immediately got a new batch for us from the printer. When we needed some creative signage around our venues, Arlene created signs that were so beautiful our guests asked to take them home! My husband and I will treasure our invitation for years to come – the final result was absolutely stunning. Multiple guests went out of their way to tell us our invitation was the most beautiful they had ever seen! However, more than anything else, what sets Arlene apart is her years of experience and attention to even the tinniest detail. I feel so lucky that we found her and I’m already trying to think of future opportunities when we might be able to work with her again!

This is the place to go if you want quality service and products. Arlene was wonderful to work with. She's very knowledgeable about the design process, timelines, and the wedding industry as a whole. We worked on creating a custom design that included a family crest and it turned out beautifully. We incorporated design details within the crest to the other cards and it really brought everything together. My fiance and I, along with our families, are very happy with the invitations. Planning a wedding is not always easy, however I always felt like things were under control and taken care of with Arlene, and that is worth a lot.

Of all the choices that we had to make in planning our wedding, the invitation process seemed the most daunting. Too many options! Then we met Arlene. She helped us sort through the process, gave us clear (but flexible) deadlines, offered guidance in Emily Post best-in-class etiquette, and led us to an elegant solution to this important part of the wedding plan. The selections that we made with Arlene's guidance reflected our special tastes and considerations for this second-time-around event. We highly recommend Arlene Cronk and Invitations and Company to anyone planning a special occasion.

We were thrilled with our custom wedding invitations created by Invitations & Company. Our wedding ceremony was held at the historic Old North Church, and we wanted some of that Boston history to be reflected in our invitations. We initially came across Invitations & Company at a wedding industry event at The Hampshire House, and were immediately drawn to the beautiful letterpress invitations incorporating Boston landmarks that they had on display. We thought they may be too expensive given the high quality of the stationary, but Callen was able to give us some suggestions to cut costs without sacrificing quality or design, and we were able to make it work with our budget. While we were a little late in starting the design of our custom invitations, Callen assured us they could be done on time, and walked us through the process of selecting everything from the paper, fonts, color, wording, etc. and provided helpful recommendations along the way. They hadn't created an invitation depicting the Old North Church before, but they were extremely flexible and worked with us to bring our vision to life - and they turned out beautifully! They arrived in a timely manner, and were packaged nicely for easy assembly. We received SO many compliments on our wedding stationary suite, and it was a great way to set the stage for our historic Boston wedding. Thank you to Callen, Arlene and team for everything - we highly recommend Invitations & Company for anyone looking to create special, custom stationary for their big day!
