About Essentials

In 2006, essentials incorporated custom wedding invitations into our business. We could not have imagined the way that the DIY movement would influence this decision. With the advent of the handmade, quality, aesthetic really taking root on etsy, Pinterest, and other social networks and design blogs, we realized custom wedding invitations were having a resurgence. With in-store design and printing, we here at essentials are able to take a bride or groom through the beginning stages of wedding planning all the way to day-of preparation. Starting with save the dates, the invitation package, envelope addressing, we can work with you to create everything all the way to your wedding favors, menus, programs, escort cards and more. All of these items can be prepared, printed, and customized to your specifications.

We work with several companies including BT Elements, Crane & Co, Designer's Fine Letterpress, Envelopments, Lucky Onion Seeded Invites, Real Card Design Studio, Tag & Co, William Arthur, Kleinfeld Paper and our own in-house, Myrtle Square Press. We do our own in-house design and printing for more personalized, custom projects.

If you are interested in learning more about our wedding invitations or customized event invitations, we ask that you call the store at 413-584-2327, or email colette@helloessentials.com to schedule an appointment to meet with our owner and designer, Colette Katsikas. Scheduling an appointment assures you that we here at essentials have specified a time just for you, to focus on your needs and interests as a customer. A consultation with Colette is of no cost to you, and will help you further understand what we offer as a custom printing provider. We hope to meet you and help you find the perfect invitations for your needs very soon!

    I went to Essentials to pick out invitations because I wanted to support a local business. Colette (the owner) was able to find the perfect invitation for the vision of my wedding. She is very personable and professional. The invitations came quickly and were beautiful. I had people comment to me on how they perfectly fit my style. I would not hesitate to use Essentials in the future.

    Colette was great to work with, from the very first meeting it felt like we had known her for years. She took the time necessary to make sure everything with our invitations was absolutely perfect!

    Colette Katsikas is the owner of Essentials and she worked with us on all of the details in creating our wedding invitations. She has extensive knowledge of paper, ink, design, color, and she is a great resource. She is also a lot of fun! Colette will definitely make you both feel like members of her big, happy, wedding-planning family. The invitations came out great and were far and above any of the online invitations you can order. Be aware that you are buying custom invitations that are printed, so the price point may be a little higher, but totally worth it for the quality of the product, the service, and the overall experience. Just plan to give yourself a little extra time when you schedule a meeting with Colette, because you may find yourself in a deep conversation over the multitude of shades of gray or making friends with another of Colette's couples, because she treats all her clients like they are the coolest people she knows and that they should all be friends with each other.
