Hi Brides and Grooms to be!
I recently had my wedding invitations done by Painted Pear. Every single one was handmade with such precision. They did such an amazing job. When I asked for a sample, based on the colors I was looking for and the contemporary type of invitation I wanted, it was like they read my mind. I had them delivered to me in a timely manner and they were beautiful! My friends and family thought I must've paid a fortune for such beautiful, detailed work. But it was actually very economical and fit within our budget we had in mind. No other "handmade" company had as personal a feel when I interviewed them and such a prompt and courteous response.
I HIGHLY recommend them to you.
Carol from Painted Pear designed and made our wedding invitations. She was great to work with. I gave her an idea of what we wanted for design, she showed me several drafts of what she had in mind and we chose from there. They came out beautiful. Simple and elegant at the same time. We were very pleased with our invitation package.
I used Painted Pear twice in the past 6 months for birth announcements and invitations. The quality of the product was exceptional. The selection is large and creative. All my friends wanted to know where we had gotten our invitations. They are elegant with with a personalized touch. I will continue to use them in the future!!!!
Painted Pear is made up of two long time friends who took different paths came back together to start our own business. Carol is a freelance graphic artist raising two kids. Persefone is a production manager for a private label apparel company.
