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.

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!

Arlene Cronk made the entire invitation process seamless and stress free. The office is a lovely, tranquil spot filled with beautiful samples. Arlene responded quickly to any questions and timelines were always met. Additionally she was a great resource throughout the process on rules of etiquette. The finished product was everything I hoped it would be.

Words can not explain how pleased I am with my invitations. Invitations & Company has exceeded my expectations. I am beyond happy with the way the invitations turned out. It's really hard to find people that genuinely care about your invitations and making sure they stay within your proposed budget. There are so many things that go into factor when it comes to an invite and both Callen and Arlene guide you in finding your budget and making every little decision needed on the invitations. Trust me there are a ton of options that can be extremely overwhelming but Callen and Arlene both help you get there. They are both professional, friendly, and caring. I just want to give a special thanks to Callen for being so patient with me. In the beginning I certainly struggled a lot with what I wanted but she really guided me and helped me through it all. We looked through a bunch of books and she did the work to find me quotes on 5 invitations in less than a week. Which is a lot of work to write up but she did it so effortlessly and quickly. She was so patient, friendly, and sweet! Never once did she try and push me to increase my budget. If I liked something and it was not with in my budget she would propose other options that were similar that would fit within budget. I am so happy with the invitations...i honestly can not stop looking at them. Callen thank you so much! I highly recommend this place. And I highly recommend Callen...she is very creative. She understands and envisions what you want, even if you cant find the words to describe what exactly it is you want! If you know what I mean....

Arlene is absolutely amazing. She made me feel so comfortable and walked me through every step of the process. She is easy to talk to and makes you feel like a friend not just a customer. I was especially touched when she sent a card the week before our wedding to wish us congratulations. She really has a gift for her work and I will always remember what a pleasure it was to work with her. Thank you again for all your help!
