Michele Clark
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I contacted Michele Clark after reading many rave reviews about her on the Knot. We booked her early (over a year in advance!) to ensure we were able to work with her. She addressed our outer envelopes to our guests, wrote the return address on the flaps, and addressed our RSVP envelopes. She did a beautiful job. I rarely see calligraphy on envelopes anymore and with how elegant our envelopes look, I can't imagine why. She was incredibly fast and her prices are so reasonable. She offered several styles of calligraphy for us to choose form and was able to match the ink to our wedding colors. She was a pleasure to deal with and kept us updated on her progress. After seeing our invitations, we plan to also have her do our place cards.

Creative Montage
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My fiance and I had a difficult time finding invitations we liked. We didn't want to spend too much, since we understood they were paper products that eventually get thrown out, but we wanted something that was elegant and matched the tone of our wedding. Locally, we were being quoted prices of $1500 for 100 flat printed invitations! We looked into a lot of online invitation vendors, but a lot of the samples we received were cheap and flimsy. I contacted Creative Montage after seeing a positive review of them on the Knot. We decided to have our invitations custom designed by Creative Montage. Aimee was a pleasure to work with; detailed in her communications with us and so talented. We sent over our "inspiration" pictures (pictures of our flower and decoration ideas, my gown, my ring, our venues, our limos, and anything else we could think of). She created a few designs from scratch and we went from there, choosing the ones we liked and tweaking them. She designed a reception card and response card to match. We had them flat printed on ivory metallic cardstock. We received the invitations less than four weeks after okaying the designs for print. They are simply gorgeous. They are the most beautiful invitations I've ever seen (and I'm not just saying that because they're ours!) The prices were very reasonable, even for custom designing, and we couldn't be happier with them. We loved them so much that we asked Aimee to design a matching monogram and we love that too! I can't praise Creative Montage enough!
