Andersen's was absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding invitations! They had HUNDREDS of invitations to choose from, and they were very helpful with suggestions when it came to working within my budget. They stayed open late for us to go through many of the invitations and styles in their store. The invitation we selected I found on their online website and they helped me set the order easily! This worked out well because we wanted unique "Mad Lib" RSVPs for our guests! Both Dawn and David were great with making adjustments on the RSVP cards based on the proofs we received. The invitations were ready in 6 days (which was less than the 7-10 days we we're anticipating)! The invitations were perfectly packaged when I picked them up the next day. I would definitely recommend Andersen's for anyone looking for place that is friendly, flexible, and easy to work with!

My friend got her invitations from Andersen's so when it came time to getting my invitations she highly recommended them. I am glad I went with Andersen's. They helped me out in selecting the perfect invitations. The detailed work put into the invitations beats any online invitation. Yes of course it is pricier but when your having a wedding you should prefer quality over quantity.

My daughter and I chose Anderson's because we wanted a traditional store..we wanted to sit and physically look at all the choices..we were offered many suggestions,and ideas that kept within our budget and plans..the day my daughter and I sat together and looked through the books choosing the invites was the start of it all! This store has great experience and great kindness..loved it

Dawn and David are wonderful people. We found them on wedding-wire when we had a hard time figuring out invitations online. They were very welcoming and helpful when we went to them. They had a wide variety of options and helped add other notes we needed to have in our invitations. David gave us wonderful advice on what to do and not to do and Dawn was amazing with hep for the design. Dawn was very patient with me through our proof process as I went back and forth on wording. She would sent proofs after each change and wouldn't do anything until our verbal confirmation. We received our invitations in 2 weeks and loved them. Dawn even took the time to add a sample stuffed invitation so we knew how to stuff them to make them perfect. Since mailing them out, we have had wonderful feedback from our family and friends on how beautiful they were. I highly recommend them, they put my mind at ease. It is very hard to picture your invitation as a whole let alone picking what type of paper to use, envelopes, and how to organize your RSVP & accommodation cards when you try to design them online. Thank you David and Dawn for making our invitations perfect for our special occasion, we couldn't have done it without you! Emily and Kelly

I was absolutely thrilled with Andersen's!!! Where else can you go and have an expert guide you thru tons of choices of wedding invitations?!? They were so great, and had so much to choose from! I was able to look thru styles, and papers, and colors, and specialized stamps, etc! So much better than "guessing" online! Dawn and Dave were so patient and friendly, and helped us thru every detail of the process! Truly amazing and I highly highly recommend! And we had our gorgeous invites in hand in less than a week!!! Could not have asked for more!! Thank you!!!

Andersen's came to the rescue and did a beautiful job! After a mishap with our first high-quality printer we had little time to get a printer who would do a great job and fast. Our invitation included an item that had to be designed and engraved. The die was made quickly from the design while the invitations were printing, and the taking of the order, proofs, printing, engraving took less than a week. Dawn and Dave were both very helpful, and very professional and worked with us through the process. Their experience and knowledge was invaluable. Despite the rush nature of the job the price was very reasonable. The invitations are beautiful, elegant, and the engraved is item perfect (delicate). We are very happy and will refer Andersen's to others, and use them again ourselves.

Dawn was very knowledgeable and professional. They have a wonderful selection, and the invitations were beautiful and came in a timely manner. I would recommend them anytime!

Andersen's in Elgin was fantastic! I considered an online printing service but am glad I supported this small, family-owned business. Dawn, the owner's wife, is the wedding expert. She spent hours with me looking through the (many) vendor books, explaining pricing, and making recommendations for how to arrange the information. She was very responsive when sending the mock-ups and making small changes that I requested (same day responses during the week). The invitations were printed so quickly, and every detail was accurate as I requested. I had a great experience with Andersen's. It's a charming little shop that doesn't have the "pomp" of today's wedding industry but they carry classy products, and the owners are very dedicated to making customers happy. The price was a great value for the quality and number of invitations I needed, and Dawn provided an additional 25 invitations for free.

We had a lovely experience and found the perfect invitations for our style! We were interested in extras for the reception such as personalized coasters. They found exactly what we wanted. We even got our cake serving set engraved with them.

Anderson's provided trophies for my son's cub scout pack pinewood derby. They were fast and provided exactly what we needed.
Katie · Married on 03/12/2016
Working with Andersen's was the best decision we could have made! My last minute change of bumping our date up by a few months meant that we needed invitations ASAP, and Andersen's delivered! Walking into the store, Dave was incredibly kind, helped us sort through hundreds of different invitations to find not only the perfect ones for our budget, but also for us! They were quick and responsive when we called and asked questions, as well as incredibly accommodating and I felt as though they truly had our best interests at heart. If you're in the Chicago area, seriously go support this wonderful family business and enjoy the most beautiful invitations out there!
Thanks so much!

I would recommend Andersen's to anyone! Dawn was very helpful in my search for wedding invitations. She went above and beyond to find me invitations in my "not so common" color. The service was exceptional and my invitations were perfect! My entire invitation suite was also very affordable. Ordering invitations was so easy, I'm so glad I found Andersen's. Dawn and David were such a pleasure to work with, I'm so thankful for their help in making that part of wedding planning so easy.

I originally thought I'd make my invitations myself. Andersen's is right in my neighborhood, so I stopped by one day just to look. So glad I did! Dawn ended up designing some beautiful invitations for me and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out. Dawn and her husband were so nice and friendly and offered great service and great prices. Would recommend them to any bride in the area.

Andersen's did a wonderful job on our save the dates and our wedding invitations! Dave took the time to sit down with us and go over the different options. I didn't feel rushed at all. I would highly recommend Dave! He was also very competitive in prices too. Thanks again, Dave!

Andersen's helped me in my selection of invitations and the overall process was great. Our invitations arrived earlier than expected and they were just what we were hoping for. I will definately use Andersen's again when I need invitations for other events!

They were very easy to work with. I had no idea what needed to go into a wedding invitation and they were extremely helpful. We ended up spending a little more than we wanted to but they came out beautiful.
