Gayle was the answer to our wedding invitation prayers! We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into and Gayle met with us in person and sat us down and helped us narrow our vision. With her professional expertise and decades of experience, she held our hand as we crafted the perfect invitation for our rustic themed barn wedding. She even went above and beyond by creating a customized mock up design before we sent them off for production. We searched different invitation vendors and some people do this as a hobby but after meeting with Gayle, it's quick to see wedding invitations is a way of life for her and it shows in the final product. Gayle's communication via email and phone was amazing and the turn time was fast. We couldn't be happier with the final product and can't wait to hear all the positive feedback we most definitely will receive. It was an honor and pleasure to work with Gayle and we're happy she was a part of our wedding process. Thank you!!

I needed invites, and I needed them quickly. Enter Gayle with Paper Passionista. She met me at 7pm just because the time worked best for me. How many people would do that? Her stationary books (yes, you get to see and touch REAL samples) were all displayed, and she came with additional online photos for us to look at.

I’d looked at invite ideas online and been ready to choose one invite suite. Guess what? She still wanted me to look through her books for additional ideas. This woman is a walking encyclopedia of what she has available! An "I like this, this, and this” comment allows her to pull out things that you hadn't considered before, but really like.

As I looked, felt, and examined the invites, I concluded that I wasn’t thrilled with the invite design I’d picked out online. Shocking, right? No, I’m not surprised either. Ok, now back to the drawing board. Gayle thought about what I’d liked and hadn’t liked. She grabbed a different brand of samples. She suggested I start flipping through them. As I looked, guess what?

THERE IT WAS.

I’d found my invite. Actually, Gayle found my invite. I’m sold for life—trust the professionals. Use her experience. Tell her what you like, what you don’t like. Consider her opinion. You will leave your meeting with Gayle of Paper Passionista feeling confident in your decision, I promise!

Are you tired of reading yet? I hope not, because I have even more great things to say about Gayle and Paper Passionista. She can invoice you with Square to pay via credit card. She will handle the ordering process for you. She’ll help you with wording, etiquette, and even suggest options for saving a bit of money. You will never be disappointed you chose Paper Passionista to help with your stationary needs. Gayle is the real deal. I hope you love working with her as much as I do. Thank you Gayle!

Paper Passionista was amazing to work with for our wedding invitations and shower thank you's. Of all the vendors we have worked with for planning our big day, Gayle from Paper Passionista has been by far the best. She is very easy to work with. She responds to your emails right away, offers great suggestions, is patient, not pushy at all, has your best interest in mind and just overall wonderful. I have high expectations for customer service and I can't think of one negative comment I could include in this. In addition to her service, our invitations and shower thank you's were absolutely beautiful. We got so many compliments on them and they really set the tone for our wedding day. I will definitely be ordering our wedding thank you's from paper passionista and any other future personal stationery.

I LOVED my invitations! Mid-century, 'Mad Men'-esque - what was there not to love?? Gayle was awesome with providing samples and even checked with the designer to see if I could swap out a chandelier with a starburst mirror... The answer was 'Yes!' :-)

We were very happy with Paper Passionista. She very patiently walked us through the invitation process, and helped us design out ultimately perfect invitation by directing us to a printer who fit our needs perfectly. She listened to what we were looking for, and was extremely knowledgeable about the entire process. She also respected our wedding invitation budget, never pushing us toward something too extensive and indeed finding us more cost effective solutions for what we wanted. We received a lot of compliments on our invitations, and we could not be happier with how they turned out.

Thank you so much, Michelle, for your kind review, and for taking the time to enter a review for Paper Passionista. It was an honor to get to carry on the family tradition of working with you after having the chance, initially of working on your sister's wedding several years earlier. I'm really glad you found me, and pleased all went well with your wedding too.

I worked with Gayle O'Donnell from Paper Passionista to create/design my wedding invitations, menus, escort carts, and table numbers. She was so kind and helpful! I was overwhelmed by all the options online for wedding invites, so I knew I needed some help. We met in person to review books of invites to select the one for me. These could also be customized. Gayle always arrived early and was well prepared. When my invites were ready, she actually delivered them to me in person! She was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to any of my engaged friends!

Gayle is a true professional! She is so kind and attentive to your needs. I am also in the wedding/event industry but she helped guide me in some of the new aspects for me - paper quality, typography, etc.
She felt out my style and budget and brought books that were perfectly suited for the type of invitations I was looking for - and plenty of options! I would highly recommend Paper Passionista to anyone looking for a comfortable, low-stress and effective step in the wedding planning process!! :)

From the very beginning, Gayle was a pleasure to work with - she was easy to get a hold of and she was very quick to respond to my emails. She was very professional in sending out a pre-appointment questionnaire to make sure she was able to provide the right service and products to us. She made it very convenient to set up a in-person meeting at a location near my home and she offered many different meeting times to accommodate my schedule. Gayle was very easy to work with - she was able to give her opinions when I asked, but wasn't too pushy with something that I wasn't envisioning for my invitations and thank you's. Once we had our order set, everything was delivered (by hand even to our home) in a timely manner. Although, the price of the invitations were a little higher than we had originally decided fit for our budget, the smoothness and timeliness of the whole ordering process with Gayle made it worth it. Thank you so much Gayle!
