My fiance & I spent hours scouring the internet for a save the date design that we felt reflected who we are as a couple. We didn't know what we were looking for until we found a stunning design that caught both our eyes. The image led us to DesignLeaf Studios & Susan Malikowski. From our first exchange to the day Susan handed us our finished save the dates, Susan was an absolute joy to work with. She clearly feels passionately about her art & cares deeply about providing her clients with a finished product that accurately portrays their vision. At our first meeting when we talked about concepts, she listened to our thoughts & ideas, offered her suggestions & asked questions about our event & our relationship. She wanted to know about us so that we would be reflected in her work. She immediately made us feel at ease, like we were talking to an old friend. I was concerned about pricing for custom work (including hand-painted watercolor work), but her pricing is very reasonable. There was a lot of back & forth as we rethought ideas & made adjustments. She was very patient & responded to each email promptly & thoroughly. The finished products just arrived & they are stunning. We can't wait to get them in the mail to our guests! We will certainly be ordering more pieces from her for our wedding as we continue the planning process. If you are looking for a dedicated, kind, creative, artist to create your stationary, look no further than Susan. You won't find anyone better.

Working with Susan and DesignLeaf Studio was a fantastic experience! Susan was expertly communicative and knowledgable about everything from fonts and paper quality, to general questions about information to include within the invite. We had a very unique idea of what we envisioned, and Susan went above and beyond to ensure that we used all the right materials to customize the invites for our big day. We would recommend Susan and DesignLeaf Studio to anyone looking for beautiful invitations for a special occasion!
