  • This is the dream team! The entire process from start to finish was a joy—we were sad when it was over! We worked with Jaye who navigated the fine line of guiding us to something that would look incredible but was also our vision. My father drew artwork for our invitation suite and she made him feel comfortable and gave us the confidence to move forward with our idea. Everyone on the team is wonderful to work with and you can always reach them. It was truly a pleasure and trust me when I say, you will not regret working with this group of talented professionals.

  • After speaking with numerous vendors for our wedding invitations, we could tell from the first consultation that the team at Lion in the Sun had a good grasp on our style and had the resources and professionalism to produce outstanding work. They made the the entire process a breeze and were very responsive at all times. The entire team is passionate, friendly and will work with you to bring your ideas and style to the paper. After a great experience with our invites, we went back to Lion in the Sun to create our escort cards, menu cards and wedding program. We'd definitely go back to them for more projects - so happy their storefront is close to us too.

  • We LOVED our invitations! They helped us make the invitations personal, and they came out beautiful. We told them a design and some colors, and they took care of the wording and we got so many compliments about how elegant and nice they looked. We are so glad we found this gem!

  • Lion in the Sun is the best!!! They did all of the paper for my wedding (Save the Date, invitation, escort and thank you cards) and rocked it all. Everything was beautiful and classy, but somehow not cookie cutter. I received countless compliments on it all. Picking your Save the Dates and invitations can be particularly overwhelming (or at least it was for me) and the wonderful team at Lion guided me through it seamlessly. I worked with several of the staff there and each and every person was warm, understanding, and incredibly knowledgeable about all of the options out there. Cannot recommend them highly enough!

  • My husband I worked with Laurel at Lion in the Sun for our invitation suite, wedding day paper [menus, programs etc] and calligraphy. The entire process was seamless and the end product was absolutely stunning. Laurel was incredibly patient as we walked through every detail and gave great insight and advice. She also did the calligraphy for our invitations, place cards and table numbers. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. She is soooo talented. Lion in the Sun also has the BEST selection of invitations as well. Something for everyone. I would highly recommend if you want great consulting, service and beautiful paper goods for your day.

  • Lion in the Sun was a pleasure to work with. Laurel helped us translate our stationery vision into reality, with a very positive and artful hand, and kept in close touch throughout the process. She and the whole team were also refreshingly honest, not trying to upsell us — which makes a big difference, when planning a wedding. Highly recommended this charming Brooklyn business.

  • Lion in the Sun designed our save the dates, invitations, and day-of paper (programs, menus, escort/place/table cards), and we had the BEST experience throughout. They have dozens of books of different invitation suites and designers to choose from, from Vera Wang to small, independent companies. We worked with Laurel, who was just a dream: knowledgeable about all things paper- and wedding-related (so, the merits of engraving vs. letterpress but also invitation-related etiquette and convention), not at all pushy, great sense of style. We visited the shop several times for design meetings, but also did a lot of editing and proofing over email, which was seamless, easy, and fast. We were happy to support this local business, but even happier with the stellar final product. (For comparison, we did our rehearsal dinner invitations on the Knot -- they were fine, but the difference in quality between that and the Lion in the Sun items was wild.) We can't wait to visit again for all things pa... Read more

  • We already had our invitations but I would certainly recommend them for invitations and all paper goods. We did our day of printing with them and the programs, escort cards and signage was beautiful. They were wonderful to work with, very personal and they have an excellent selection but I recommend giving them plenty of lead time.

  • Lion in the Sun did a fantastic job on our wedding invitations. We came into the store with a vision for the suite that was quirky, unique, and ... vague. Mel, Nora, and the graphic designer did not bat an eyelid; on the contrary, they got to work and helped us clarify the package and bring it to life, with a consistent aesthetic. This involved general creativity, graphic design, and ... patience. Lots of patience. Because when you are putting together wedding invitations, there is a lot of back and forth ("should we use this font? what about this color? wait, should we put this icon here or there??!! are you sure it's okay not to spell out the date?! help!!!"). Yet Lion never made us feel that we were obsessing over the details (even though we were). We feel that the result is outstanding. Granted, we're not unbiased, but many of our guests have described the invitation in superlative terms ("favorite one I've received", etc.), and a very large fraction of our response cards comme...

  • Lion in the Sun is the best, the best, the best. They worked with us on design and customization options and were very responsive to our comments on each round of proofs. We ended up with a Save the Date and wedding suite that we just LOVED. We even had a few different types of custom stationery made using elements of our wedding invitation design. When there was a slight issue with the printing on our wedding program, they had it redone in short order, no questions asked — they’re just as professional and top notch as you can imagine, and it was a big relief to know we were in such good hands on the paper front. And it’s so fun to go to the store and see all the other designs that they’ve come up with for their couples!

  • Lion in the Sun was fabulous. I found them because when I was stalking pictures of our chosen wedding venue, the Prospect Park Boathouse, I found a picture of an invite with a picture of the Boathouse, and it's iconic street lamps. I knew I wanted those for my own wedding and tracked down the invite to Lion in the Sun. Nora worked with us to customize the design to suit our own needs and I couldn't have been happier with out they turned out. They were STUNNING. Is it weird to love your wedding invites? The letterpress was just so gorgeous, and they allowed us just the right amount of customization. For example, we love penguins, so not only did we add penguins to our response card (because, hey, why not?) but the designers also incorporated them into the image of the Boathouse, with little tiny guard penguins on either side. Not getting married at the Boathouse? No problem. They have so many fabulous designs, with a number designed around different unique Brooklyn venues.

  • I can't say enough wonderful things about Lion in the Sun. We worked with several members of their staff and every single one of them was amazing. They are completely flexible and open to executing whatever your vision is - they don't find customizations annoying, in fact they welcome it. Every time I told them of an idea the response was "Sure, we can probably do that!" What I also love about them is they don't act like money is no object. They will be honest and upfront about the cost implications of any decision you want to make. You can save $x if you eliminate this. If you add this it will add $x. This is sooo refreshing because nearly every other wedding vendor I've worked with acts like money grows on trees and guilts you into making a decision with cost in mind! This place has a lot of options and vendors so really you can do anything you want, the sky is the limit with options. I can't say enough great things about this place and would highly recommend them. The owner is very ... Read more

  • We got our wedding invitations from Lion in the Sun and, even three months after, I still love them. Melinda was great to work with and ended up finding us a design that we loved. It was pricey, but worth it for the invitations. I found it easiest to communicate in person, which was a little tough since I don't live in New York and had to plan my visits, but I would highly recommend Lion in the Sun if you do.

  • Absolutely beautiful invitations! I wanted them custom printed based on a watercolour painting I had made, and they did so in record time. I was completely included in every step of the process, as they sent me emailed proofs of my invitations, and made changes when I requested them. Personal customer service was astounding! Rather expensive, but definitely beautiful quality.
