  • We were very happy with our invitations and save the dates. They offer a great variety of pre-designed options and are very flexible if you want to do something custom (which we did for our save the dates). It took only about a week to get everything and they looked fantastic!

  • I don't remember the womans name I started working with there but she was great. I had a friend reccomend them to me and I really loved them. The invites were so pretty and they took care of all the little printing details i needed. They were a bit more money then others but totally worth it!!!

  • We incorporated the artwork of a friend in to our invitation, and the folks at Lion in the Sun were really accommodating. The end result was a really beautiful original invitation. It was exactly what I wanted!

  • Lion and the Sun were great - all the staff were extremely helpful. We ordered both our invitations (William Arthur letterpress) and our programs with them and they made it so easy to narrow down our choices. They have a great range of options, from traditional to more funky, contemporary styles. We got rave responses from our guests to the invites. Another note, my fiance went in to pick out the programs on his own - the fact that they were able to work with him to create something beautiful is a true testament to this skill. Would not hesitate to work with them again!

  • My invitations were beautiful. They were exactly what I wanted. Letterpress, custom colors, just the right cardstock. The customer service was amazing, Cindy walked me through the whole process. She had so much patience with me, it was so hard getting the colors just right. In the end it ended up costing me a lot (about $25 an invitation) but for getting exactly what I wanted with amazing customer service it was worth it.

  • I have trouble writing this review because I think that Lion in the Sun has great potential and could probably be a wonderful place for many people to get their invitations, but we happen to have had a stressful experience. Therefore, while I don't recommend the store to my friends who are getting married, I wouldn't necessarily recommend against it either. Honestly, if I had to do it all over again I would use a different company. In the end our invitations turned out quite nicely. It just took a long time to get to that point, mainly because our initial consultation was fraught with misinformation given to us. I won't go into all of the details, but suffice it to say that the invitations quickly became the most stressful part of my wedding planning. There was very much back and forth over e-mail -- luckily, the staff member we were working with was very responsive to e-mail. Even during the proof process it seemed that things kept coming back with mysterious mistakes whi... Read more

  • Mel and her crew were amazing from Save the Dates to Thank Yous. They have an amazing selection of everything and you feel like you are sitting with a friend not some stranger trying to make a sale. They are so sweet and very pleasant to work with.

  • They were fabulous - helped us design our own invitation with a sketch done by the groom. We left it until the last minute but they helped us get it figured out within enough time - even with time to spare. Was so great to use somebody from the neighborhood!

  • Lion in the Sun is extremely helpful! We purchase a invitation by Folios of Maria Thomas (exclusively by Checkboard) from them and they assisted in the layout and made useful suggestions! The invitations were beautiful!

  • Mary, Mary, Mary, this woman was INCREDIBLE. She got more excited about my Wedding than I did. We ordered Save The Date cards, invitations (and accompanying directions, accomodation, and registry inserts) menus and ceremony programs from Mary at Lion In The Sun. She gave us so much creative input, so much of her time, and effort. We ordered our menus and ceremony programs way too late, but she still made it happen for us, perfectly, and on time. I never had anyone get so excited about my ideas, like they were the best ideas in the world. She gave me so much confidence, and she had so much good advice. FABULOUS, I urge to go and see Mary at Lion In The Sun for all of your wedding stationary.

  • Melinda at Lion in the Sun in Brooklyn was extremely helpful in assisting us with our invitations, menus and church programs. She also arranged for the calligrapher to address our invitations, and hand paint table numbers on crystals that we used as table markers at the reception.

  • These ladies are very experienced in what they do as most have been working there for many years. Their selection is great but their prices are not competitive. They offer wonderful one-on-one service that you wouldn't get as much anywhere else. They have a huge range of invitation "catalogs" to choose from... from very expensive to cheaper. I would highly suggest this shop.

  • The staff at Lion in the Sun was fantastic about helping me put together our wedding invitation--right down to being patient when I took two weeks to finalize all the text! Melinda can come off as a little bossy when first working with her, but if you verbalize what you want from your invitation, she is all about making sure you get what you want...so don't be put off. The invitations arrived on time and beautifully. Highly Recommended.
