  • 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...

  • Our wedding was a few weeks ago. We went to Lion in the Sun for our invitations, reception signs, and wedding programs and could not have been happier with the experience and final results. Melinda was a true pleasure to work with and over the course of several meetings and discussions helped us create printed materials that truly realized our vision. She listens carefully and without judgment and at no point did I feel pressured into purchasing something more expensive than we were comfortable with. The end results were classic, elegant, and matched the tone of our wedding perfectly. Highly recommend her and Lion in the Sun -- it's also a very sweet shop and one that you will enjoy browsing and spending time in.

  • We used Lion in the Sun for custom wedding invite suite for our wedding in October 2016. Melinda is absolutely the most knowlegable and passionate stationer we came across in the process! This was such a fun process thanks to this A+ team with incredible professionalism, knowledge, experience, and awesome product. Our consultation and consecutive meetings to pick out font, review custom artwork, etc were such delights. I had lofty dreams and specific interests when it came to our wedding invites. Melinda helped us to design exactly what I wanted, and with incredible value! Prior to stumbling upon LITS, we had consulted with high end stationary chains that offered us much less flexibility (essentially 0 flexibility) at high ticket prices. PLEASE realize that you need not be confined by the restraints of typical invitation shops! 'Custom invites' are not stock invites with your individual event information plugged in. Custom invites are what Lion in the Sun can help you bring to life. I... Read more

  • We ordered our Save the Dates and wedding invitations through Lion in the Sun and are SO happy we did. Mel worked with us to create a unique and beautiful save the date, which perfectly nailed what our vision was and suited our wedding venue (Gurney's in Montauk, NY). Mel also helped us create elegant wedding invitations that absolutely blew us and our invited guests away. Mel was patient, professional and responsive, and gave us so many good ideas and excellent guidance throughout the whole process. I would love to work with Mel again! Thank you for everything!

  • The quality and elegance of our wedding invitations fit the regal quality of our wedding venue and ambiance for the night. Nora was so helpful for us and was very patient when we went back and forth on a lot of ideas. We couldn't quite put what we wanted in an easy to decipher way but through the proofs and visits, the final product was perfect! In the end we received many compliments when people started receiving them.

  • Mel and her team were amazing to work with! After a very thorough initial consultation, Mel immediately got our concept and her designer, Ella, translated our vision into a gorgeous custom Save the Date, which set the tone for our entire wedding suite. Our guests were blown away when they got our invites in the mail. Mel was very accommodating and went out of her way to explain all options to meet our budget, help us with etiquette questions, and find the right balance between traditional and whimsical. We will be Lion in the Sun clients for life!

  • We worked with the lovely folks at Lion in the Sun in Huntington before it closed on our wedding invitations and we know that the Brooklyn shop carries the same beautiful products. We were able to customize our simple and elegant letterpress invitations - something we weren't able to find anywhere else. We would definitely recommend Lion in the Sun!

  • Lion in the Sun was amazing-the invitations were gorgeous and of the highest quality. The order was delivered in a timely fashion (I ordered my shower invitations as well as my wedding invitations from them) Mary was the greatest to work with-I LOVE her and Cathy was the calligrapher-her work is awesome. I can't say enough good things about this store, their selection and the service. I felt very comfortable being in the store-it was warm and friendly, just like the people who work there!

  • If you really care about the quality and design of your invites, and want to be able to customize them, we highly recommend Lion in the Sun. It's great to be able to sit in a store, speak with an expert, and look at and touch hundreds of stationery options. We enjoyed working with Marjorie, who acted as a project manager and design helper. Our one complaint is that it's much more expensive than ordering from a Minted, Paper Source, Wedding Paper Divas, etc., though we were happy we went this route since my fiance and I are both in creative industries and cared about the invites. They give you 10% off day-of stationery (menus, programs, place cards, etc.) if you order invites through them, but we opted to do those through one of the online services because even with the 10% discount, we would have paid hundreds more than the online service we are going to use. And unlike the invite, I don't think we'll be framing the menus or place cards.

  • Very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly staff, but we had to go through many iterations of our proof because of misspelling and miscommunication between Lion and the Sun and the company the invites were ordered from. (including misspelling our names, address, key information about the event). The invites are expensive as well, even for very basic versions. We went through our process of ordering very far in advance so the many iterations were not a problem but could have been if you were on a tight timeline.

  • We ordered our save the dates and invitations from Lion in the Sun. I went to them specifically for their POSTSCRIPT Brooklyn themes invitations. I am not super design-inclined and was hoping for the staff to help me select fonts, colors etc. that would look good together. They were nice but didn't really make suggestions or offer guidance. I ended up not really liking our Save the Dates, not enough to not use them but they weren't special or beautiful. Our invitations ended up slightly better but only because I copied one of the designs exactly from their sample book. I wish they provided more guidance on design throughout the process.

  • I asked Lion in the Sun for calligraphy on our invitation envelopes. It turned out to be beautiful and everybody loved them!! Other calligrapher passed last half of invitation out of blue and I had to find someone urgently. They have three calligrapher in house so they found one of them who was available to work very quickly. They locate in brooklyn which is not hard for most of the people to come over and meeting with the sales person to tell exactly what you want was really helpful. The price is pretty average and there was no mistake in the name which was the most important.

  • Very knowledgeable and high quality designs/products. They were very helpful in rushing our order and ensuring we got a lot of extra envelopes. We did have one hiccup and they weren't as responsive to feedback as many other vendors we worked with. About 80% of our reply card envelopes came back ripped (some across the address) while I know is from the post office, but there was a design flaw and our contact was not very receptive to our feedback.
