I have received the most amazing feedback! So many people have told me it is the nicest invitation they have ever seen!
Not only have I gotten so many calls and emails about how beautiful they are, but the best thing is that my son has been getting emails and text messages from his friends - they are saying the invitation is awesome - and that was from the boys!! ... I also can't tell you how many people noticed both stamps and commented on how nice those were too and how perfectly they matched the invitation.
Thanks so much for handling the escort cards for our event this past weekend. They were perfect!
I cannot get over how phenomenal the invitations are. Thank you for all your hard work and patience. I am beaming and owe it all to your perseverance and creativity. Thanks again.
