The Early Word (formerly Made With Love Paperie & Design Studio) is a boutique design studio located in Chicago, Illinois specializing in social stationery and brand solutions. Founded by graphic designer Amanda Yu Dieterich in 2008 under the name Made With Love Paperie, the business grew and evolved. When the demand for our branding service increased, we realized our little stationery studio have outgrown its name Made With Love, originally named with the intention of designing social stationery exclusively.
We love listening to your story and look forward to working with you for your wedding stationery!

Wedding invitations start to tell your guests a story -- they are the first glimpse into your wedding and set the tone for what they should expect. Amanda understands this so well, and created for us the most amazing wedding invitations that fit our day perfectly. It was such an easy process -- she really listened to us and researched our venue to create a stunning invitation that wowed us and our guests (I got text messages from our guests when they received our invitations telling us how gorgeous they were!).Sent on 12/01/2016
Having Amanda do the rest of our day-of goods (escort cards and place cards) was an easy decision. They, too, turned out perfectly and kept the theme from the invitations running into the rest of our day.
We were beyond happy with Amanda from start to finish -- she's truly amazing and I encourage you to hire her for your day. You'll be in fantastic hands!

Made With Love and Amanda are AMAZING!! Amanda worked with us on every element of our design suite - building around the concept and elements of our wedding. She effortlessly found inspiration in the history and essence of our venue and incorporated these ideas into our suite. The design insights she provided helped inform nearly all other aspects of the wedding - from decor to favors to cake. She gave voice to our ideas and articulated amazing touches she felt would tie everything together. We could not be happier with our suite - and nearly all of our guests have commented on how tremendous they are.Sent on 04/17/2013
Amanda was extremely responsive, professional, fun and enthusiastic about communicating the "mood" of our day. Even though our wedding is taking place in Philadelphia (our home), her studio is in Chicago and our printer is in Cincinnati - this potential challenge never impeded any part of the process, or the results. Her dedication to her clients and her work is unmatched. She took the same pride with our suite as she would for her own wedding.
I would recommend Amanda to anyone who wants to make the first impression of their wedding as lasting and vibrant as their love.

There is so much for me to say about Made with Love, but most specifically Amanda. I came to work with Amanda in sort of an odd way. The invitation person we had originally gone with had a family medical emergency and was not able to continue working. Our wedding was in October of 2009 and this happened in May of 2009. At that time we had all of our printed material picked out and ready to go. My wedding planner said not to worry she had just the person in mind. Amanda. Right from the get go she told me she would figure out a way to recreate the same exact invitation (since it was custom) for the same price. And she did. She also worked with us in creating our menus, programs, CD labels, tags for the gift bags, which she came up with on her own and did not charge us for. She could not have been more helpful or understanding and near the end I don't think I was the most pleasant bride to work with. She always gave me multiple options for each design and they all were wonderful. Her specialty is letter press but we did thermography and it turned out beautifully. You will not be sorry if you use Amanda and Made with Love!Sent on 04/28/2010
