I love Paper Source!

I just wrote a review, but man-o-man I love Paper Source! My mom and I just got back from buying the invitation paper and can't wait to start getting them done!

This wedding thing is really happening! haha

What did you choose from them? I planning to use them as well, just not sure how I want to do my invitations...

I love them too - great selection of stock! I had one small glitch with them, however, in that the gatefold enclosures I ordered for my invitations were about 1/4 inch shorter than advertised. This made my already ordered flat card invitations (that were to be put inside them) too tall and they stuck up above the gatefold. When I contacted them, they were very nice and quick to apologize. They called all their stores and did an inventory check and realized that ALL the gatefolds were measuring short...so they couldn't send me a replacement. I ended up having to cut off 1/4" off of each flat card invitation. Not that big of a deal, but a slight pain. Just a warning...when I talked to a salesperson on the phone, she said they give themselves 3/8" margin of error on their measurements (but don't disclaim that on their web site). So make sure you measure! :)

Oh bummer beatie! I'll definitely double check!

Holy Moly -- We are doing a two-layer paper card and inserting an RSVP card as well as envelopes for both. We got the 5x7 cards with A7 and 4BAR envelopes. Then we got the 8.5x11 white paper to print on and cut for the "body" of the invitation and 8.5x11 to print and cut for the RSVP cards.

I would highly recommend going in to have them help you.

That is where I got all the paper for my invites (PIB)! I had a lot of fun.

One point to beware of... I asked when I was buying my products if I could return them at a later time if I don't use it all. The salesgirl said yes. When I went a little less than 2 months later to return some stuff they said technically they don't take any returns after 30 days and only gave me a credit.

I love the Paper Source too! And they have calligraphy classes and all sorts of other fun classes one could take.

We bought paper there to make our place cards and for table numbers cards, but we also bought this beautiful green ribbon that we'll use for the place cards and ribbon that we'll use to decorate the cake.

When I have my camera fixed I will take and post pictures of the favors that also work as place cards.

I love PS too! I went to their wedding workshop last month and I was exposed to embossing for the first time. I was hooked!!!! All the employees there are so talented and crafty and willing to help out.

I wish their flat cards were different sized. I'm looking for a matting to add a layer to my invites but they're a little short on length. But I'll just buy paper and have it cut to my desired size. But I agree that it's a great resource!!!

Have you been to Kate's Paperie or Paper Mojo? Those are great too but Paper Source is fun, my FSIL is a true addict.

I bought all my invitation stuff from Paper Source's website as the store was out of many of the things we wanted. We ended up with an extra pack of paper so we took it to the store to return, but they wouldn't accept it. Although their items come from Chicago's warehouse, they require you to ship it back to Chicago with a $6 restock fee. That's ridiculous! So we decided to keep the extra pack of paper. So I suggest that you buy the minimum that you need and go to the store if you need extras.
