We needed rapidly made, custom-made coupon book that we designed and it was done in a jiffy and in exactly the style we wanted! She hit it out of the park under a huge time crunch and understood what we wanted right away!

Carina was one of the sweetest and most professional people to work with. She sat down with us and went through everything we needed to know about invitations. She talked about the different types of paper as well as the different types of printing, and she gave her opinion on what she thought worked best for us. She made the task of designing and printing our invitations seem like a piece of cake. She was very clear in her explanations about each aspect of the printing process and her prices were pretty reasonable. Her turnaround time is great as well. We met with her and one week later she had our first proof. Her eye for design is amazing and she works with you in order to incorporate any ideas and personal touches you might want to add. We are so happy to have been able to use Little Bird Creative for all of our invitations and wedding stationary. We highly recommend Little Bird Creative!

Working with Carina was an absolute pleasure. My fiancee and I went to her without any really specific designs in mind, we just had a bunch of photographs of different types of invitations we liked. Carina was able to help us figure out a design that would make us happy, mix together both of what we wanted. My fiancee wanted a design that looked elegant and formal, and I wanted something that was a little vintage, and not too stuffy or fancy (so obviously mixing these two together was not an easy task). Throughout the design process, she was sending us e-mails about different ideas she had that she thought we might like, and when I had ideas, she would send me links to different websites to help me make my decision. She was always available to discuss any questions I had, regarding the language on the invitation, the timing of different things, etc.

Carina was really helpful by walking us through all the different options for printing, designs, paper, etc., and when she performed her work for us, she was upfront about the pricing of everything, and willing to talk to us about different ways to stay within our budget and still be happy with the invitations. It was great not to have someone constantly trying to push you above and beyond your price point!

Even after the designs were completed, Carina remained accessible to us, and responded quickly regarding any questions we had about preparing and mailing the invitations. We would definitely use her again!

Carina was the best vendor I've worked with for my wedding throughout the whole process so far, from the minute I contacted her. Of all the vendors I emailed, she was the only to call me back, and our conversation showed she was genuinely interested in working with me. I immediately chose her before she even sent me the quote. She worked so well on my tight budget and gave me EXACTLY what I asked for - my invitations are so perfect, the colors are perfect (and they're hard to match, believe me!), the envelopes, the font, everything... perfect.

The turnaround was great, she communicated promptly every single time we'd email about the proofs, and I even needed some extra labels printed after all was said and done, and she's getting them to me next-day. I will be returning for my thank you cards and ANY other stationary needs I ever have. I highly, highly recommend!

I work in high-end fine art publishing, so it's fair to say that I was a total bridezilla when it came to my wedding invitations. Carina represents the best of both worlds -- a flexible, one-woman studio who will craft something individual and unique for your wedding, but also a reliable, responsible professional. She put time and thought into our invitations, and is a real perfectionist. You'd be hard-pressed to find more reasonable prices for the amount and quality of work she offers, and I personally appreciated the warmth and patience she exhibited throughout.

The design process was very straightforward since I had a good idea of exactly what I wanted, but Carina also suggested some extra touches that really made my invitation fabulous. Once all the elements were designed, the editing process became a little tedious since it was just spacing issues. When everything went to print, it didn't take very long, but we were not satisfied with the final product. There was a problem with the printing and there were black dots on our pink and green ink. Once we informed Carina how unhappy we were, she had them reprinted at her own cost, which was a huge relief. Our invitation had several pieces and required assembly, so I'm sure it was an expensive process. Overall, we were very pleased with Carina's professionalism and response to the printing issue. The final product was better than we had expected.

We loved Carina's work! She designed beautiful paper goods that our guests absolutely raved about! Carina designed them very thoughtfully (and cost-consciously), and they really reflected our personalities and our wedding. Some things did get behind, but everything worked out beautifully in the end!

Little Bird Creative created a unique and personalized invitation for my wedding - which is exactly what every bride wants! I provided Carina with different elements of my wedding and as per my guests the invitations perfectly suited my personality.

I live out of state, but there was constant communication via phone and email so I never felt ignored or left out of the process. I would highly recommend Little Bird Creative for your customized invitation and stationary needs
