I worked specifically with Michelle but all of the staff at Lee's are friendly and helpful. With Lee's I was able to find what I was looking for and then some! The invitations and save the dates are phenomenal! I have been thinking of more reasons to go back to Lee's (Like cocktail napkins and gifts for friends and family). They went above and beyond my expectations and we will use them for all future even invites.Thank you so much!

We were VERY pleased with the service from Michelle and Nicola at Lee's. They went above and beyond to make sure our order was correct and on time.
Crains, on the other hand, was a nightmare. EVERYTHING was double the estimated time to complete and we almost didn't get the stock we had chosen, even though they told Lee's in advance that it was available? I would definitely order from another company next time.

The staff is professional, kind, caring and creative. Their knowledge, expertise and attention to detail is first rate. They made the experience a joy. They even were able to help me via long distance with my stationary needs. I would recommend Lee's Speciality for any type of invitation or stationary .

Lee's was amazing! Our custom-made wedding invitations were by far the most special touch of our wedding and, six months later, we are still getting compliments. Michelle worked with us for months to get the perfect final product and we couldn't have imagined how beautiful they would turn out. The entire experience was so wonderful and that my brother and future sister-in-law are having their invitations done with Lee's too. I can't say enough great things about this place!

I was so pleased with my service at Lee's Specialty, Ltd. Not only did they help me with planning my daughters wedding but also my sons. The quality of service and expertise was more than I could have expected. The staff at Lee's made both of my experiences very easy and enjoyable, mostly due to their flexibilty and willingness to do whatever my needs were. I highly recommend Lee's Specialty to anyone looking for quality in invitations and customer service.

Both the save the date and the invitation were a huge hit with everyone! The ladies at the shop are so nice and willing to work with you to create exactly what you envision. The quality is outstanding!

WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER and WATCH OUT FOR HIDDEN CHARGES OR BAD ESTIMATES!!! I strongly recommend finding another invitation shop - as dealing with them was one of my worst experiences. First - we went in there with a very specific budget and spent a lot of time picking out an invitation that we were told fit that budget - and we were initially very pleased with the selection. I was directed to come back (without the groom) to place the order, as the process can be quite timely, but good news was that I could spend the interim time getting addresses in the appropriate format so that we could have the envelopes addressed via machine calligraphy. After I returned and spent several hours selecting the wording, font, etc. for the invitations - I was told they THEY had made a mistake in the invites and I would be charged an additional couple of hundred dollars. The clerk helping me had the nerve to tell me that I should have known - and I had bought them when we initially went in THEIR mistake would have been discovered. They refused to honor their estimate, give us any discount, or even give us a break on the machine calligraphy. The latter was most upsetting, considering I just recently discovered that they have a free coupon for machine calligraphy if you buy your invitations there. Anyways, due to the all of the time we spent there and approaching deadlines we decided to place the order. We got the proof and were told to carefully check the language but thankfully I read all of the fine print (Lesson - READ YOUR PROOFS CAREFULLY) because they had totally mixed up the colors that we had selected. Finally, I received the invitations and we decided to go ahead and get the machine calligraphy (because you're supposed to get it free when you buy your invitations there due to the Weddingwire coupon- even though they don't tell you). So when I called to schedule the machine calligraphy I was told that "Good News the coupon is still good" but the bad news was that my envelopes were too thick for the machine calligraphy and I would have to pay almost $400 EXTRA to have hand calligraphy. So, I'm not sure why she said she had good news exactly!!! When I suggested that they should have told me this when I selected the invitation (since I told them we were going to have machine calligraphy) - she actually said we're not mind readers how would we know you were getting the machine calligraphy. My reply was you should have known because we told you we were going to have machine calligraphy and you gave us the instructions that we were to follow for our addresses. Honestly - I question whether they are telling me the truth after all of this. Long story short - the invitations are nice (but that's due to the vendor not the store) but we've already shelled out an extra $200 and still don't have them addressed. I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND GOING ELSEWHERE.

Lee's Specialty responded with the following comments:

Customer service is our main goal, however, after 25 years, we are use to both working and cooperating with our clients. This relationship is very much like a marriage. It takes two to make it work. There is a great deal of detail involved in ordering invitations. Discrepencies happen and they were resolved with this customer. In fact, the price was changed for less when the invoice arrived. As far as addressing, people take many paths with calligraphy and we are not privy to all information. Often times it is undecided at the time of the order. As far as the Wedding Wire coupon, it is put there as an incentive to see how brides find out about us. No one was hiding anything. It is a way to track business. In trying to reason with someone, it is difficult to resolve anything when the customer just screams. This happen not only at the store, but the customer called the vendor screaming into the phone as well. Obviously, in this case, emotions are high during what should be a happy occasion. We do our best to resolve problems, as they happen in life. In some cases, nothing is good enough.
