When I went to my florist, Carl Alan Floral Design, to discuss my centerpieces, I saw a picture of the most amazing seating chart in his office. It was this gorgeous gold antique mirror with all of the guest names and table numbers written perfectly on the glass. I immediately knew that is what I wanted to do for my wedding at the Crystal Tea Room. He gave me the contact information for Christina Carnevale at Paper Rock Scissors and I was so excited to hear the mirror was available to rent for my big day. She did such an amazing job on our mirror seating chart! We received so many compliments from our guests on how different and classy it was. I was so happy with how it came out and Christina was so wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend Paper Rock Scissors to any bride!!!
So helpful with my wedding invitations, very kind and involved.i highly recomed them. you will not be disappointed.
Christina is such a pleasure to work with! She is a true professional who is so talented and creative. She not only did our invitations but also our escort cards, table numbers, and our ceremony programs. We received so many compliments on our invitations. They were very elegant and classy, just what we were looking for. I am so happy with everything!
Christina at Paper Rock Scissors was wonderful to work with! The design process was really enjoyable (and her shop is adorable). She listened to my ideas, showed me examples of her previous work and then created different proof options that I could choose from. The invitations look so beautiful and I'm extremely happy. She worked with me on the design so that it fit in my budget as well. In addition, she shipped my invitations to a different state for me (I recently moved to the Philadelphia area but I'm from LA) and the packaging was amazing! She organized everything so well for me and that made it very easy to stuff envelopes. Because of the great experience, I'm even recommending Paper Rock Scissors to my LA friends. Overall it was a wonderful experience. Thanks to Paper Rock Scissors!
Warning: DO NOT USE PAPER ROCK SCISSORS FOR YOUR INVITATIONS UNLESS YOU WANT TO GET RIPPED OFF!
We went in to get a quote from Christina and before we even met with her we told her our budget of max $2000, preferably less. At our meeting she told us all the invitations she showed us were custom ones they had previously done for weddings (even though some had dates of 2018???) and a lot of them looked like they had been torn off of something on the back, which I found odd. After our hour long meeting she took over FIVE WEEKS to get us a quote, which came in at a whopping $4500-$5000, after we had specifically told her what we could afford and to only show us those invitations that fit our budget! Not only did she not listen, but she pretty much wasted our time and then sent us a completely ridiculous quote.
After searching for another vendor to do our invites, we found Schank Printing down the street from Paper Rock Scissors. As we were looking through their "Carlson Craft" books of invitations, what did we stumble upon but ALL OF THE "CUSTOM" INVITATIONS CHRISTINA HAD SHOWN US! Turns out all they do is order these books and rip them out and take credit for them and up-charge you!! We ended up getting the same invitations she had shown us for $1300!!!
Total ripoff and scam, do NOT use them!! SO disappointed and angry at our wasted time!
Thank you for your review of our services! We are glad that you were able to find another local vendor who could provide invitations for you in the price range you desired.
All items that we quote include our signature services such as etiquette advisory; stuffing, stamping, and mailing of invitations; and handwritten calligraphy. The proposal presented also included a print upgrade to foil stamping and ultra-thick card stock, as well as two different types of save the date cards. These extra services and items require additional cost of supply and time for production, all of which is accounted for and itemized in our proposal.
As far as our invitation samples, all finished invitation suites shown in meetings are past clients' actual selections. Since we offer so many different combinations of paper and printing, we may not always have samples for each and every option we are able to provide. Therefore, some items presented during meetings are used as visual guides to discuss print method and paper choices ONLY. These items are shown with full disclosure that they are only samples of potential print and paper combinations. These items do not represent the end product that our business produces.
Again, we are so happy that you were able to find another local vendor with whom to work, and we appreciate your feedback.
I was really torn on whether I wanted to use a stationary vendor for our invitations or just use a website such as wedding paper divas, due to how much we were already spending. Luckily my MIL offered to pay and that solved that problem. Christina was great to work with. She had a fantastic selection of invitations to choose from, which is one of the things I liked most. We literally customized everything about the invitations. We added our guest addresses to the envelopes to save time and it looks so much more elegant. After we received the envelopes, I noticed two of the names were misspelled on the envelopes (my fault) and Christina reprinted the envelopes with the correct information, for no additional charge! The only small complaint I have is the price of the labor. I felt it was very high considering we still had to stuff everything ourselves. Overall though, they were fantastic and easy to work with, and the end product is GORGEOUS. We have gotten so many compliments on them.
Our invitations turned out beautiful, all of our guests were impressed and complimented us on our invitations!! Christina was very helpful and answered all of our questions and offered many suggestions and different options. I am very pleased with how the invitations turned out, almost obsessed with them lol. Again, Paper Rock Scissors did an awesome job!!
It was such a pleasure to work with you and your mom on your wedding invitations! We are looking forward to working with you on your day-of stationery as well - we are so pleased that your guests loved the invitations, but most importantly, that you had an excellent experience with us at Paper Rock Scissors!

I went with a different company to print my invitations in the Chestnut Hill Area, BIG mistake! The invitations from a place other than Paper Rock Scissors took more than one month to print despite assurances otherwise. A wedding planner and my friend recommended Paper Rock Scissors for printing, calligraphy, mailing, etc. When I called, the services was AMAZING! Christina from Paper Rock Scissors handled EVERYTHING from organizing our names, stuffing, postage, calligraphy and mailing. Despite the worry about timeliness, Paper Rock Scissors SAVED the day! My invitations were mailed within a respectable time! I will only use PAPER ROCK SCISSORS for all printing needs. I have 3 more daughters and I KNOW that PAPER ROCK SCISSORS will be with us for each of their weddings!
Mary, we were happy to help you with your envelope addressing, and look forward to working on your family's programs and place cards!

I can't thank Christina enough for creating such stunning one-of-a-kind invitations. She worked with me on my budget and truly listened to what I wanted and needed. Her ideas in terms of paper, layout, etc. were on point. I felt confident approving the invites via email since the composite she sent was so detailed. My nautical inspired invites blew everyone away. My only issue was that they were so heavy- they were $2.48 each to mail! I wish there had been a chart showing which sizes will cost how much. I'm glad I had a professional do them since some of my favorite pictures from our wedding day are the ones the photographer used the invites in. I can't think of anyone in the Philadelphia area who is as talented, knowledgeable and professional as Christina is. Not only is she a true artist in her field- she's also sweet and funny!
Christina was an absolute pleasure to work with. The quality of the invitations was amazing! Her calligraphy looks like it is printed... nobody could believe that she did it by hand. If you are looking for great quality and the flexibility to not have to pick a stock designed invitation out of a book, then you should definitely use Paper Rock Scissors for your invitations.
As soon as Christina and Kristen sent my invitations out, I got numerous emails and texts from people saying how beautiful they were. Christina and Kristen listened to my wants and needs and the end result was an invitation that was exactly my style. I cannot say enough good things about this vendor. Thank you again, ladies, I love them!
Thanks so much for your review. It was a pleasure to work with you as well! Congratulations to you and Joe!

The best decision I made during my wedding planning! My invitations, programs, and seating chart were absolutely beautiful and I received tons of compliments on all of them!! Christina was amazing to work with. Very professional, helpful, and knowledgable. I told her what I wanted and her recommendations were perfect!
Christina was absolutely amazing to work with when creating the look for my wedding invitations. She really listened to all of the characteristics that I used to describe my wedding and provided amazing samples for me to choose from. One of the most helpful things I think she did for me was that she had invitations that other brides who had gotten married at my venue had used in the past. She was extremely helpful in getting me to narrow down what I was truly looking for and I ended up with something more beautiful than I could have imagined. The quality of the invitations is absolutely incredible. They are classy, sophisticated, and everything I was looking for! Plus the turnaround time for printing was so quick - I do not have to send them until October and I received them in the first week of September. I would recommend Christina to any bride in a heart beat.
Thank you for your kind words about our service and your experience here at Paper Rock Scissors. Congratulations to you and Greg!

WOW! Christina is a genius. I had the best time working with Christina to design all of our wedding stationary. She came up with the most beautiful, unique design for our romantic winter wedding at the Franklin Institute. We had initially wanted to do just the invitations but when we saw the amazing work she did for us on our invitations, we expanded to doing everything- from napkins, towels, menus, escort cards, table signs, even tote bags for our guests! She went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect, and she even delivered my invitations to me by hand in NYC!!!! I can't recommend Christina enough.
Thank you for your kind words and your review. It was equally a pleasure working with you on your stationery. Congratulations again to you and Alex!

Loved my invites....thanks so much
Christina is the most talented person ever! From my invitations to my cocktail napkins she is truly gifted! Her work is one of a kind! She was vey quick with her responses. She made sure that everything was perfect. She was awesome to work with and she really helped me through every step of the my planning process. She knows so many people in the business that if you need anything she can definitely guide you in the right direction!
The staff at Paper Rick Scissors were great. They spent lots of time helping me select a design and were great to correspond with over email. I had a short timeline and they were able to work with a letter press vendor to produce really unique and beautiful invitations and thank you cards at a reasonable price. They also worked well with the person I had doing my custom illustrations on file transfer etc. The invitations were one of my favorite aesthetic parts of my wedding.
Absolutely gorgeous invitations!! Worth every penny.
Thanks so much for posting a review! We loved working with you on the invites! We know your wedding is coming up so let us know if we can help in any other way!

Christina and her work is great! She definitely delivered a product that I was very happy with and is so easy-going. One of my favorite vendors to work with!
Our wedding invitations were gorgeous. The ribbon was my favorite part! The place cards were absolutely perfect. The starfish went so well with our theme. Christina, thank you so much for your attention to detail. You're wonderful!
Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review! We would love to see pictures if you have a moment to send some over!

Christina and her team at Paper Rock Scissors did an amazing job creating and printing our wedding programs, menus and place cards. We met at a bridal show, I gave her a call the following week (she even remembered who I was, despite there being hundreds of people there) and she was SO great and easy to work with. I needed them done quickly, as I was running out of time and she responded to my questions and requests right away and made me feel at ease through the entire process. My programs, menus and place cards were beautifully done, exactly on time. We had so many compliments during our wedding on how beautiful everything was. It was a pleasure working with Christina and they are very reasonable for the wonderful job they do!! I would recommend any bride to work with Paper Rock Scissors.
Thanks for taking the time to post such a thorough review! We were so happy to feature your wedding on our blog when you sent pictures...keep in touch!

Most gorgeous invitations ever ...
Christina was great to work with! Highly recommend!
Christina did a fabulous job with our save the dates, invitations, programs and seating chart. Beautiful and quality work. Can't say enough and recommend her highly!!
Leah and Alex,
It was my pleasure to work with you and provide you such stylish items for your wedding. From meeting you the first time, to seeing you just a few days ago to pick up your programs, working with you over the past few months has been great. I am certain you enjoyed your day at Normandy and I can't wait to see a few pictures of you together as a new Mr. and Mrs.!
We loved our end product but the overall experience working with Christina was tough. She was hard to get in touch with but once you finally did it was fine. She is really nice and does a good job, but her communication was non existent and things were always down the last second. (I am not a late person, so this drove me nuts). At times it made me wonder about us actually recieving our stuff in time, but we did and again the end product was good.
Thank you for your honest review! Please know that we are adding staff to help with customer communication and customer service.
I knew I was going to use Christina for my invitations from our very first meeting. She was extremely easy to talk to and had many great ideas. I felt like I was working with a friend who's enthusiasm showed me that she wanted our wedding invitations to be just spectacular! She was able to take my vision (of a Winter Wonderland wedding with a blue and white damask theme) and bring it to life by creating a cohesive look and theme that included: invitations, table cards, place cards, bar signs, trolley signs, welcome gift bags and wedding programs-all of which just were beyond stunning!
Most of my wedding replies came back with notes on them saying "beautiful invitations!" The guests loved the overall look that was carried throughout the wedding. The wedding programs included a Who's Who of the 12 bridal party members and it looked amazing and people loved it...I am still getting requests for extra copies of these.
Christina also did custom napkins in three colors that included trivia questions about me and my husband and they were also a huge hit at the cocktail hour.
I would highly, highly recommend Christina for invitaitons and everything else she can offer because you willl not be disappointed. She is very creative and does beautiful work...and she is also a fun person to work with!
