We used the online service to order our invitations and RSVP cards. We simply chose the template, which was exactly what we wanted, and customized it. Within 24 hours we received the proofs for the invitation, rsvp, and addressed envelopes, which were promptly submitted for order. We were told that the shipment was 10-14 days. Interestingly enough a week after the order was placed, the company did not have our proof of our addressed return envelopes. This required another few days to correct the issue before it went to print. Sadly, we then ran into another road block. Paper Source utilizes a third party company to print. During the time of our printing, the equipment failed. This further delayed any printing for at least two weeks. Of course, this created some anxiety, which prompted multiple phone calls to the company. My mother handled most of the calls and felt the customer service representatives were excellent; they remained pleasantly patient, understood the time sensitivity of our needs, and tried to keep us informed of when printing would resume. It was a frustrating that they didn't have a contingency plan for these events and were unable to provide an accurate timeline for production and shipment. After another long week of keeping fingers crossed and calling the customer service department daily, the shipment came in Friday. Although we were not looking for compensation, the company did reduce the cost for the inconvenience as well as upgraded shipping to overnight packaging. Despite the hassle, delay, and stress the invitations are absolutely beautiful. They are beyond what I expected in quality and detail. I would recommend using Paper Source, regardless of our fiasco. If you do order with Paper Source, just make sure you have some buffer room to allow for production problems.
We did DIY invitations by selecting paper components from a local vendor and then having the printed materials done by Paper Source. Using their online system and designs, we came up with the invites, RSVP cards, and accomodation/other info cards. They promptly forwarded proofs of these items. For the accomodation/other cards, we wanted them printed on bigger stock and they were eager to comply. The work came out wonderful and they even provided some extra blank stock in the order, just in case. All and all, Paper Source was wonderful to work with.
Our invitations were beautiful - exactly what we wanted! They were more expensive than we expected, but we didn't really have any idea how much invites would cost to begin with. We lucked out that they had a design we loved already, so it was easy to plug in our info. The process was easy and fast and the invites came quickly. Recommend!
The paper source on Armitage is a great place for DIY invitation or any other paper needs. They have a wide variety of paper colors and textures as well as prints. The staff is very nice and knowledgeable. It is easy to ring up a big bill at the Paper source but in the end I loved my invitations, thank you cards and programs!
thank you for the resources! we used all of your products from bridal shower to the wedding to the thank you cards. can't wait to have a baby shower. thank you again
I bought all of my paper here and then had it letterpressed elsewhere. The color of the paper was great and so was the quality. I was very pleased and got many comments on the invitations.
While I did the calligraphy for our wedding invitations, I ordered the paper from Paper Source. We wanted 100% recycled paper for the invitations and the envelopes, and Paper Source had just the thing. They unfortunately sold the envelopes in packs of 8 and the cards in packs of 10, so we had a weird number in our order, but they had a good discount so it ended up just fine.
The paper looked great when everything was printed on it!
We used paper source for our invitations and it was great. Everyone loved them and we couldn't be more pleased with how they turned out. Would defintely use them again.
We made our own invitations, but we bought everything at Paper Source. The people were very helpful in giving ideas and suggestions, and we saved a lot of money making our own instead of paying to have them made!
We recieved so many compliments on our invitations. Fun enough, I think this was one of my favorite things about my wedding. We did run into some problems trying to order them online. It took me hours to try and figure out how to format the invitations, so finally I called and talked with their invitation department. Thirty minutes later I had my proof and the order was placed the next day. I couldn't have been happier with the results. I recommend them to everyone now.
I used them to make our programs, escort cards, and table cards. I loved their stuff, it's just a bit pricey.
Paper Source is a store that has all sorts of stationary, papers, and decoration ideas. I bought all the materials and made everything myself. Great selection, friendly workers. If you're planning on making your own, should pay a visit!
When I ordered my invitation they were supposed to have "some assemly" required; however, when I got them I had to put the entire invitation together myself... The only thing that I did not have to do was print the wording! Out of the 200 invitations that I ordered, 50 of them did not fit into the sleeves that they came woth and when I called to exchange the sleeves they acted like I did something wrong. I was also shorted on sleeves and the decorative paper that wrapped around my invitations. When the extra sleeves were sent out to me, they were the wrong ones.
I bought all the materials for making my programs at Paper Source. It is a go-to place in Chicago for DIY wedding stuff and they have an amazing amount of options. I brought some friends to help me as I didn't quite know what I wanted to do, and they were very helpful. However, the Paper Source staff just let us wander around, didn't really offer any advice. I do appreciate their selection and the quality of their products. However, I am turned off by their return policy.
Our invitations were absolutely beautiful. They arrived promptly and in style. I highly recommend www.paper-source.com!
I made my own invitations and bought the paper and envelopes at paper-source.com. I love the selection of envelopes and eventually chose the petal style for my invitations. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money to buy the swatch book, so you can get a good idea of the colors. And pay attention to the type of paper you're buying to see if it's compatible with your printer. I learned the hard way when I was making programs for my friend's wedding and ended up going to Kinko's.
