    Amazing experience and beautiful designs!

    At a month out from our wedding when our Plan A for wedding signage, escort cards, and day of stationary fell through, our planner recommended we reach out to Cardsmith Design Studio. Lourdes did not only come to our rescue, but her designs nailed the vibe of our wedding and turned out even better than we imagined. Her promptness in communication and production were such a relief, and her client portal, contract, and payment systems were among the most professional, clear, and user friendly we've seen from a wedding vendor. And when I say she was fast, I mean it was about 3.5 weeks between contract signing and having our order arrive at our house! Her prices were also extremely reasonable for the quality she provides. I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for event stationary!

    Custom Invitation Success!

    We worked with Lourdes at Cardsmith for our September 2021 wedding and can not recommend her services enough!

    My fiancé and I were hoping for something a little bit more personalized than Zola etc. but I was very overwhelmed by the options and costs I found elsewhere. I even tried my hand at creating them myself and the results were…not pretty.

    I was connected to Lourdes at Cardsmith Design Studio and it was probably my best decision in the whole wedding planning process!
    I’m certainly not a creative person and sent Lourdes 3 pictures from Google images of our venue and she put together the most amazing invitation suite perfectly capturing the vibes we were hoping for. She is so talented and was a dream to work with - fielding too many of my address etiquette questions and catching my grammar mistakes 😉 not to mention the price was very affordable.
    We received so many compliments from friends and family talking about how beautiful and unique our invitations were.
    So for anyone feeling lost and overwhelmed in the process, I definitely recommend setting up time to work with Lourdes!
