We start but setting up a consultation with you where we take the time to get to know you, and get a better understanding about you and your fiance and your wedding. We'll talk with you about your dress, your flowers, your location, and any themes you'd like to incorporate into your invitations. From there we start designing your invitations, and we tweak it along the way until you say it's perfect! It is surprisingly simple, and truly fun....most of our grooms have even said so!

A few months ago my daughter was married at the Washington, DC Four Seasons Hotel. Our event planner Kelley Cannon introduced us to Paperzest a design studio just outside of Washington, DC. We had the pleasure of working with Christina, she listened to our wedding vision and was able to render all of the details from stunning menus that were adorned with feathers, beautiful personalized maps and the incredible printed information and wrapping of individualized gifts for our out of town guests, place cards, table numbers with sophisticated framing, fabulously clever cocktail napkins and the list goes on. All of the tiny details that every guest notices but can not quite figure out how that all happened, Christina creatively helped execute. My son is getting married this summer in New York City, and Christina is the only source I can trust to create an outstanding evening before invitation with assorted paper goods. Do not bother to look any further she is the one!

We have had a wonderful experience with Christina. After one quick talk she had our style down and delivered several great designs. We live close to her so we had the luxury of face-to-face meetings but she was also attentive over email and phone. She was much more competitively priced than any of the chain stores we visited and she did a completely custom invitation suite. As soon as our invitations starting arriving in mail boxes we started getting texts and emails about how impressive they were. We couldn't be happier.

Christina at Paperzest is amazing! She did all the paper products for our wedding including the invitation, program, escort cards and other signage. She was easy and enjoyable to work with. She listened to our ideas and had suggestions of her own. The final product was better then I ever thought possible! We have received so many compliments on the items Christina designed, we would recommend her to anyone!
