I really liked how we had the option to sit down with someone in the store to walk us through the process and options but could then go home and do everything online. The website was great and very easy to use, the prices were affordable, and our save the dates came out great!

Unfortunately, there was not a Papersource store in Colorado at the time of my Wedding, so I had to go to Santa Monica to order my invitations, since it was not an option to order the specific letterpress colors that I wanted online. The invitations I had ordered in Santa Monica turned out perfect and were beautiful, but were definitely on the higher side for pricing. It was definitely a challenge working with a non-local vendor for this, but it was possible, since my mother-in-law lived nearby another store in California, so she was able to go order the Menu cards, programs, gift bag tags, etc. I will definitely be shopping at this store for other paper products in the future and do believe there is a store being built in Denver currently. I would probably check at other places for pricing first, but they provided an extremely quality product!

I ordered the paper for my invitations from this company online. I was pleased with their options for colors, but I do wish they gave more information on what the papers feel like. My order was packaged very nicely, and arrived quickly!

SO thankful for Paper Source and their employees! I had wanted to save some money by buying some embossed card stock at Paper Source and printing them myself. Despite the great quality of their products, the raised part of my card stock (from the embossing) would come out with splotches of ink from my printer. After trying many printers, I brought this to the attention of the manager. He willingly returned all of the damaged items, spent hours in the store with me trying to print them out, and finally made a special order to have them printed professionally and gave me a discount. They were so accommodating and so willing to help in any way they could. I was thrilled with the end product! This is also where we bought menu cards, table numbers, etc. because of their high-quality products. I definitely recommend Paper Source, whether you want DIY invitations or professionally printed.

We used the papersource for all of our invitations. They helped us create an invitation from scratch using elements of others that we liked. The invitations turned out amazingly, and were less expensive than some boring ones we found online!

They failed to contact me to finalize my order after my initial consultation, but it was smooth sailing after they. They do a great job and meet their deadlines, but you may have to do all the followup.

Our friend is a designer for Paper Source and created a custom design for our invitations. We absolutely LOVED the design (which we then incorporated into our programs, place cards, etc) and received too many compliments to count!! The staff at Paper Source was extremely helpful, both when we placed our order and prior to that when we were choosing paper. They keep a record of the colors you've used/purchased, so when I sent my hubby back for extra paper there was no question as to whether he'd come back with the right stuff! We received our invites within a week of placing the order (which was great because to save on cost we chose to assemble them ourselves and it gave us plenty of time to do so). Our invites were a little pricey, but the quality of the paper and printing was phenomenal .... and there are so many creative ideas to be found in the store (I could spend hours in there, no joke ... hence having to send the hubby to pick up any needed supplies). I will definitely use them again for any stationary needs!

We used the Southport location to find our invitations. We went with a very elegant William Arthur invitation. There are tons of options at the Paper Source from DIY to traditional companies. We went there a few times to look through their books to make our decisions. We also ended up using their papers to make DIY wedding programs and select place cards. We were happy with everything we purchased, and it was nice to have a local place I could walk right into any time I forgot an item or wanted to look for something else.

I would NEVER recommend using Paper Source for wedding invitations. When we went into the two Chicago stores they didn't help us at all, and the paper we chose caused our ink to smear so by the time the guests got the invitations they were completely ruined. When we went back they told us we shouldn't have used that paper because ink doesn't stick to it, but nobody told us that and it didn't have any printing requirements on the package.

The only positive thing I can say is that they did reimburse us 100% and very quickly.

The best Papersource in Boston is on Mass. Ave in Cambridge. This store has everything and the staff to support your every question. Anthony was the first to help us, but there were many other staff memebers that continued to help us every time we came back to pick up 'just a few things'.

What was great about the Papersource, was that they taught us about our options for DYI and professional printing and the cost differences. It was helpful because as a designer I did want to have a hand in every element...but also was realistic that my only free time was after work and on the weekend...and there is only so much you can do with that time.

SOOO, the papersource was our lifesaver! Because of time we ended up having the Papersouce make our invitations. They worked with us to adjust on of their designs to make it uniquely ours. The team in Chicago that does the printing was super responsive when it came to going over the proofs and getting the wording just right. That process can be difficult and the Papersouce made it easy!

Just to list the other great things we got from the Papersouce are: Seating Cards, table #'s, invitation labels, Thank you cards, stamps and colored paper for things we ended up making our selves (like signs). They are also reasonably priced!
