Made With Love Paperie & Design Studio
Made With Love and Amanda are AMAZING!! Amanda worked with us on every element of our design suite - building around the concept and elements of our wedding. She effortlessly found inspiration in the history and essence of our venue and incorporated these ideas into our suite. The design insights she provided helped inform nearly all other aspects of the wedding - from decor to favors to cake. She gave voice to our ideas and articulated amazing touches she felt would tie everything together. We could not be happier with our suite - and nearly all of our guests have commented on how tremendous they are.
Amanda was extremely responsive, professional, fun and enthusiastic about communicating the "mood" of our day. Even though our wedding is taking place in Philadelphia (our home), her studio is in Chicago and our printer is in Cincinnati - this potential challenge never impeded any part of the process, or the results. Her dedication to her clients and her work is unmatched. She took the same pride with our suite as she would for her own wedding.
I would recommend Amanda to anyone who wants to make the first impression of their wedding as lasting and vibrant as their love.
There is so much for me to say about Made with Love, but most specifically Amanda. I came to work with Amanda in sort of an odd way. The invitation person we had originally gone with had a family medical emergency and was not able to continue working. Our wedding was in October of 2009 and this happened in May of 2009. At that time we had all of our printed material picked out and ready to go. My wedding planner said not to worry she had just the person in mind. Amanda. Right from the get go she told me she would figure out a way to recreate the same exact invitation (since it was custom) for the same price. And she did. She also worked with us in creating our menus, programs, CD labels, tags for the gift bags, which she came up with on her own and did not charge us for. She could not have been more helpful or understanding and near the end I don't think I was the most pleasant bride to work with. She always gave me multiple options for each design and they all were wonderful. Her specialty is letter press but we did thermography and it turned out beautifully. You will not be sorry if you use Amanda and Made with Love!
Amanda was amazing to work with! She even went to the Post Office and bought adorable wedding cake stamps for me! I couldn't have pulled off such amazing wedding invitations without her!!
Amanda from Made With Love Paperie did a fantastic job on the design of our wedding invitations, rehearsal dinner invitations, programs, menu cards, and thank you cards! She was very responsive to any questions or emails that we had and always got back to us in a timely manner. Not only was she professional with her business, but she was also very personable. She put every thought and effort into the design of everything, like it was for her own wedding! To this day, we still get compliments on our invitations and we were so lucky to have found her.
I was referred to Amanda from a fellow bride who wanted quality invites but can save by assembling it ourselves. She provided an array of designs for us to choose from and then personalized it to our preferences. She's very intuitive, flexible, and budget friendly. By being able to assemble our invites, we were able to stretch our budget to get the letterpress invites we really wanted. She gave great advice and options that definitely saved us money (like letterpress the invite but not the thank you cards or talk to this person at this post office so we can save 50 cents an envelope). Her overall estimate was way more affordable than other vendors (I shopped around to about 10 vendors), so I had my invitations, place cards, thank you cards, programs, menu, sticker labels, address labels, and a belly band for my favors. As a result, we were able to carry the theme throughout the wedding much better. We received A LOT of compliments on our invitations and all the other pieces. We'd would definitely work with her again!
After ordering samples from quite a few companies and spending hours looking through the large invite books, my husband and I couldn't find anything that we like and we knew we would have to go the custom route. Our wedding planner gave us a few recommendations and after contacting and speaking with a few of them, we felt that Amanda understood our needs the best. We worked with Amanda on creating custom invites, menus, table numbers, drink cards and signs for our wedding. Amanda really understood what my husband and I wanted for our invites and wedding stationary - we wanted something that went well with our reception venue and mimicked the decorations throughout the site. We went through a couple of proofing phases with her and after each one, all our our requests and changes were executed perfectly. While it was still on the slightly expensive side because it was all custom work and we chose letterpress, Amanda was still less expensive than other custom companies we contacted and recieved quotes from. Plus, she is located in Chicago, so we could meet face-to-face for our meetings and she delievered all of our finished goods to our house so we didn't have to worry about mailing everything. We love Amanda!
