A Muse offers three levels of assistance: entirely DIY invitations, partial DIY, and completely done by the A Muse staff. I opted for the entirely DIY invitations, so I purchased my paper and some tools from A Muse. What I found very helpful at A Muse is that during your private invitation consultation-should you choose to schedule one-they will work with your ideas to help you come up with a great-looking invitation. They even make a mock-up invitation during this session, which you can take with you. The only downside is that you must pay (I think about $25) for this consultation, so if you have one and chose not to get your invitations from A Muse, then you lose that money. Their assisted DIY option is great for those wanting to do some of the work themselves and same a bit of money--they will do all of the printing and cutting and then you do all of the assembly. I found that it was cheaper for us to have our invitations printed elsewhere and then we cut them ourselves, but A Muse does offer a competitive price and services. Overall I enjoyed my experience with A Muse. My only criticism would be the often lack-luster customer service that I experienced when going in to purchase items for my invitations.
What can I say? I LOVE A Muse. I am a crafty gal who loves to make things and had always planned on making my own invitations. A Muse helped me come up with a beautiful and unique design. We decided to have A Muse do our printing because of the special paper we chose. We signed off on the project on Monday and they were ready the following day! Another bonus: because they make many of their own papers, we were able to make matching wedding favor boxes and cupcake wrappers to coordinate our whole event - all for the cost of the paper!
A Muse did a beautiful job on my invitations, programs, menus, place cards and favors! I was amazed at how quick the turnaround time was on my invitations. My mom and I visited the store on a Thursday to get some ideas and our invitations were ready on Tuesday! We made our own favors using A Muse paper and their die-cut machine which saved us a lot of money. Everyone loved them! If you live in the Seattle area, A Muse is a *must* for your wedding stationery... and other fun crafty things. Oh yes, we also got our paper pom-poms there too!
