  • We ordered our invitations from Paper Presence, which included a Ceremony/Reception invitation, Rehearsal Dinner invitiation, Travel Accommodations insert and Response Card. The quality of the invitations was fantastic and just what I envisioned. Andrea did a great job creating the layout and the artwork for all of the items! There was one small mix-up w/ some invitations getting lost in the mail, but the situation was immediately resolved. It was a good experience overall, and I would use Andrea again.

  • Andrea is an awesome designer! We received so many compliments on our invitations and everything else. The quality of the materials she uses is extremely high. I had no idea all the types of questions and work that goes into make beautiful invitations and stationary. The colors were absolutely gorgeous. She also coordinated thank you cards, place cards, and menus for our wedding. Everything was so beautiful. We highly recommend Andrea and Paper Presence! Jason and Dede Green, 3/27/11 (she even saw the bridezilla in me two days before our wedding and was nothing but professional and understanding)

  • She is an excellent designer... nothing but good things to say... She will answer requests at all times and will not let you down on getting EXACTLY what you want! She makes custom invitations to meet your needs and I can not be happier! She went above and beyond for sure...

  • I have to admit that during our process of planning, the invitations and printed item costs felt heavy to me. But this was ONLy due to my ignorance on the stationary end. Andrea printed all of our stuff from the SAve the dates, to the table names and menus, and i can not tell you how perfectly every item flowed throughout our wedding. From the designs to the final product everything was A+. I can not convey how many compliments we have received on the invitations alone. And they were trully a work of art. It is because of the quality of service, the creative expression and the value we got that we will continue to use Paper Presence for all our future stationary needs.

  • I really have nothing but great things to say about Andrea and Paper Presence!! I was so happy with how everything came and very impressed with Andrea's work. She is truly amazing at what she does and has a very unique style. If you are a bride like me who dosen't want the same old thing everyone else sends out, then you have to use Andrea!! She really went above and beyond and even dropped off my invitations to me because I had no time to pick them up!! I really don't know who else would do that!! I highly recommend her!!

  • We absolutely LOVED the way that our save the dates, invitations, escort cards, table numbers, and extras turned out. Andrea really listened to what our ideas were. She was able to take the vision that we had in our head and actually create it. We have received countless compliments on each of the pieces and how they all tied together. We will definitely hire Andrea for any future stationary needs. We highly recommend Paper Presence!!!

  • I had absolutely the worst experience with Andrea. I drove from two hours away for a consultation with her, which went very well. I loved all her work and designs, we came up with sketch and ideas for all my wedding stationary and I left feeling great, especially since I was running short on time, but she assured me everything would be ready in time and she would have the contract for me within 48 hours. After emailing and calling, leaving numerous voicemails and becoming genuinely concerned that she was ill or in trouble, I never heard back from her, not even I'm sorry or an explanation for her actions. It appears she is the only employee for her business, with no back up to return calls - completely unprofessional. I wished I would have listened to some of the other reviewers. It appears she does good work, but is just utterly unreliable, which is NOT what I want when I am planning a wedding! I let my coordinator and all my other vendors know how awful my experience was to make sure ... Read more

  • ABSOLUTELY DO NOT USE!!! Working with Andrea from Paper Presence was the worst experience of the entire wedding planning process. I first met with Andrea in August of 2010. It was difficult to continue e-mailing ideas back and forth so we decided to meet again in November (I live out of state). She assured me that that would be plenty of time to finalize a design concept and be ready for mailing in early January. It was after this meeting that everything seemed to go bad. I tried e-mailing Andrea several times and never received a response back. Between December 1 and December 27 I sent numerous e-mails and left several phone messages but none were answered or returned. My mother finally was able to make contact with a business associate of Andrea’s and left word that we desperately needed to talk to her as the mailing date was quickly approaching. Andrea called my mother back that day and mentioned that she had had some family crisis. She never once apologized for not answering e-m... Read more

    I’m sorry to hear this bride was not satisfied with my services as I always striving to provide the best service for all of my brides. You can see from all of my other rave reviews that I am almost always able to achieve the highest level of satisfaction for my clients. However, I am human and did in fact suffer a family loss and personal sickness during this time, which unfortunately caused delays outside of my control. I can only apologize that I was not able to meet this particular brides expectations even though I did everything in my power to do so. Sadly, it seems exaggeration and dishonesty are the chosen method to get a point across, and that is an unfortunate disservice to others using this site.

  • I was so excited to find Andrea because I wasn't finding anything I liked. She was hot and cold through most of the design as far as keeping in touch. I'd hear from her very promptly for a week and then nothing. I was ALWAYS the one to initiate contact. Then close to the date we needed to send the invites she went 2 weeks TWICE without a call or email to our numerous attempts to contact her. The second time we stopped hearing from her my mother found her home address and had to go to her house to confront her husband! We finally received them and I was in tears. She had given us way too many rehearsal dinner invites and too few maps. We had to reproduce 30 maps ourselves because we didn't want to deal with her another day. It was THE MOST STRESSFUL part of planning my entire wedding. She told us she was ill but NEVER kept us informed, never had anyone else call us. It was scary. The invites were beautiful, perfect, exactly what I wanted. However it was not worth the stress. ... Read more

    Sara, I am saddened to read this post from you and sincerely apologize that you feel your experience with me was stressful to this extent. As you mention, I did fall extremely ill during our time working together. Being diagnosed with pneumonia was a fairly unique situation and unfortunate set of circumstances that I went through. It was not a headache or a cold. It was pneumonia. I would hope a reasonable person would look at a situation such as this and not take criticism to a level that would publicly disrespect and dishonor a person both personally and professionally. I have been in business many years, and work very hard to provide excellent customer service and build lasting relationships with my clients, as the dozen other positive reviews reflect. I have noticed that you are leaving this same review on numerous sites, and again, I apologize that you felt so unhappy with the process that you are taking your frustration to this extent. In the end, I am happy that you felt your invitations were beautiful, perfect, exactly what you wanted, and I hope your wedding day was filled with joy.

  • WORST EXPERIENCE EVER! Left multiple emails and voicemails and did not hear from her for a month! Never responds to emails timely and never returns phonecalls. Had planned to use her for save the dates, invitations, programs and thank-you letters but after the nightmare I went through with the save the dates I found someone else. Trust me, you do not need the added stress working with her will give you when you are trying to plan your wedding! I would not recommend her to anyone, ever!

    At Paper Presence, we pride ourselves on customer service, as the numerous other reviews posted here attest to, and it saddens us to know that this is how a client feels based on her experience with us. We take great pride in our company and services we provide, and are committed to the satisfaction of our clients.

  • Very nice but some things were missed and had to be redone. When redone found other things missed and did not bother fixing on invitations. Proofing is a must and patience.

  • Wow. I'm surprised to read that others have recently been less than happy. My experience with Andrea was wonderful. Her creativity is leaps beyond the others I met with, and I found she was the only designer who truly wanted me to have something unique for my wedding. She did go through a serious family emergency, but I wasn't in a huge hurry and understood the delays. She was even able to incorporate my desire to have both English and Spanish wording on my ceremony programs, which was very important to me. I feel bad that others have left such negative comments. I thought Andrea was the most personable and comfortable of all of my vendors. I absolutely love my invitations and am looking forward to working with her in the future for other events.

  • Andrea did an amazing job on or invitations. She was able to show me excellent examples that FAR exceeded those you'll see in other bridal shops. We had so many compliments on our design and quality and I truly believe they set the exact tone for our whole event. I would recommend paper presence for all the brides that want a person to person experience rather than a 2 dimensional online option. You won't be disappointed.

  • Andrea does AMAZING work and the end product was awesome. We had some issues with having them done on time, b/c she had a family emergency to tend to. I totally understand, but there was no back up in place to keep us updated with the progress while she was out, & we left tons of messages over a period of two weeks without any response. It all turned out beautifully at the end though~
