Your Vision. Your Style. Your Day. We Can Create It.
Your invitation is the first piece of your wedding that your guests will see. Set the tone and make it a memorable day with a Sara E. custom designed invitation! This is not your standard sit down and pick an invitation out of a book. Instead, I sit down with each bride and together we design the theme for your special day. From Save the Dates to Thank You cards, the choices are endless! I will work with you to develop a concept that is not only unique, but stays within your budget. Don’t settle for an invitation everyone can have, create an invitation designed for you and only you! Call or e-mail us today to set-up a free consultation.

Sara E. specializes in custom-designed envelopes and invitations to full wedding stationery packages. We also love to create designs for baby showers, baby announcements, party invites, growth charts, wine bottle labels and candy bar wrappers. Having worked in branding and marketing for clients such as Harley-Davidson and Ford; I apply the same principles to your special day and create a "branding campaign" for each couple. I look forward to working with you! Read less

Sara's work is unbelievable. We were so happy with both the process and the final products. She created a custom gold foil letter press invitation suite for us, along with a tropical band and envelopes (even a stamp) to incorporate in our destination wedding. She also created welcome bag tags, programs, menus, signage, and thank you notes for us all coordinated with the invitation suite. I couldn't have imagined working with anyone else. Looking forward to working with her on many more projects.

Sara was so easy to work with! I gave her a rough idea of my vision and she gave me stunning and unique invitations and programs that my friends and family are still talking about. It is more than worth hiring her for the personalized attention and wow factor.

I would highly recommend Sara E Designs! Sara is so personable, creative, responsive, and genuinely cares about her customers and her work. I ordered my "Save the Dates", Wedding Invites, Programs, Food Station signs, Restroom signs, Rehearsal Dinner invites, Monogrammed napkins, Thank you stationary, as well as my Christmas Cards this year. I also ordered a gift for my husband and she put the decal on the bar mirrors. I will forever use Sara. Sara is so easy to work with! Her work is fabulous!

BRIDES BEWARE! Don't get me wrong Sara's designs are great and so beautiful. But her professionalism is lacking. Sara sent an inner envelope with our wedding invitations which she 1- charged us for and 2- we never proofed and had even agreed to NOT do. I have a signed contract where it specifically states we did not want an inner envelope. To make it all worse, the envelopes went out with incorrect names and misspellings on it. Some if them even said 'wife' for couples that we had yet to verify the wife's name. This was the only disaster in our wedding of 220 people. Sara printed extras for us so I could include one in our scrapbook and these didn't include an inner envelope. I didn't find out about the inner envelope until we got a call from a family member asking why the invitation was addresses to "the Joe Smith family" but the inner envelope had only one name on it. It may not sound like a big issue until you realize we had a contract signed that said we were not interested and that this resulted in multiple phone calls to guests clarifying who he invitations were intended for. No bride deserves to go through this just weeks before her wedding. We thought it was great to support local and work with a great artist but I would not recommend her to anyone else. There are other small, local business who can take better care of heir brides.

Sara listened to my idea of design and worked to create several examples of ideas to look at that fell within my budget. She did a great job of customizing the design down even further to match our theme and look. I received numerous compliments on our invites!

Sara has done invitations for both my daughter and son's weddings. She also did the rehearsal dinner invitations for my son's wedding. I have had Sara design thank you notes for friends and the two brides. Sara is so creative! She has wonderful ideas even when you are stumped. Everything was done when promised or sooner. She worked long distance via email with my daughter-in-law. She was patient with changes. Sara is a delight to work with. Her shop is welcoming and will give you great ideas. You can not go wrong using Sara E. Designs for any of your printing needs. I miss seeing her!!! I am not going to plan another wedding though.
