Featured Tesimonial: Anne!

Anne found me through Etsy, as do many brides. She had already purchased her table numbers for her reception, but still needed something to tell her guests to save the date of January 7. I took the look of her table numbers and married it with the save the dates I created from her. These are her beautifully letterpressed table numbers, purchased from this etsy store.

Here's what I came up with:

Here's what Anne has to say:
We have gotten such wonderful feedback from all our friends and guests about the save-the-date. Everything from "they are so cute" to "those are the most unique save-the-dates I've seen." We love them and knew they would too. Thank you again for your work. I have referred several of my friends who are also brides to you - since you were beyond easy to work with, very friendly, exceptional as a designer and reasonably priced. I can't wait to get started on the wedding invites!

**I can't wait to work on her invitations either– she and Tom are one of the funniest couples I've worked with. Take a look at their wedding website, and you might just pee your pants in laughter. Don't say I never warned you!

Keep the theme going!

I love when the theme of the wedding invitations is carried over to the ceremony and reception. It really looks amazing when it all ties together.

I subscribe to a wonderful shopping blog. If you aren't familiar with Rare Bird Finds, go sign up right now! But, beware--they feature some great things that you will spend all your money on. Don't say I never warned you!

Today I opened up my email from Rare Bird Finds to see some BEAUTIFUL reversible table cloths that would go oh-so-perfectly with my Modern Dot Invitations (and as always, the color scheme of my invitations can be customized for you!)

I get a lot of traffic through Etsy, most of which are people wanting different quantities than I had listed. So, I made what I feel is a smart decision and am only listing samples for sale on my site. If you see something you like, you may either purchase a sample or email me your quantities and I can get a custom quote for you!

I also put some of my newer designs on my Etsy site. Check it out by clicking on the image below, or by the trusty link in my sidebar to your right!

What are the chances?

I was contacted by a bride this week who saw my feature in Junebug, a Seattle based wedding blog that is a wonderful source for wedding ideas. She saw my concert style save the dates and then saw that I was located in Columbus, just a few miles from her! It was meant to be.

I had the pleasure of meeting with her and her fiancé today for coffee. I brought along my portfolio, which is something I rarely have the opportunity to do. While it is possible to design invitations remotely (I'd say about 90% of my clients are out of state), it's refreshing to be able to meet and talk weddings face-to-face. I knew I was going to love working with them, when she said "chartreuse." I'm obsessed with that color and can't wait to work it into her gallery inspired save the dates!

You can read what she has to say on her blog.

Featured Testimonial: Julie!

I have been fortunate to work with Julie on all her wedding materials. She has been really easy to work with, and I really love how these invitations turned out. Julie wanted a bold and modern look to her invites, and wanted lots of green! We went with accents of chartreuse and moss to match her bridesmaids dresses. I am looking forward to creating her programs and table numbers to see how all of it will come together.

Here's what Julie had to say:
"I loved working with Marit on my wedding pieces. I sent her a couple pics of pieces and colors i liked, and she created exactly what I wanted! Anytime I requested changes, etc. made, she was super quick and really seemed to enjoy creating my perfect invites! I would absolutely recommend Marit to anyone who wants custom invites."

Featured Testimonial: Janet!

My friend Sherri, who happens to be a very talented photographer, referred her best friend Janet to me. Janet was a joy to work with; she came prepared with not only examples of style she likes but also fonts and color palettes! She had a good idea of what she wanted and trusted me to put it on paper. After exchanging a few emails, I got a really good sense for her wedding. Janet had save the date cards made with a vintage style photograph of the Brooklyn Bridge, taken by Sherri. She wanted her invitations to be stepping stone from the save the date cards. Janet expressed that she'd love her invites to contain New York City landmarks for her Brooklyn wedding. This is what I came up with:

Here is what Janet had to say:
Thank you SO much - they are gorgeous! They look even better in person. I love them! Thank you thank you thank you! I And really, don't be surprised if you start getting some referrals from my wedding planner because she was really impressed. I'll definitely be handing out your business card to folks.

On Vacation!

For those of you who may have missed the little sidebar to the right, I will be on a much needed vacation from July 2 to July 10. It has been a very busy season for me, and while it has been very gratifying--I am definitely looking forward to a week of relaxation on the coast!

I went full speed ahead this week and finished up invitations for Janet S. and Julie D, as well as save the dates for Beth K. and Carla P. They are all boxed up, labeled and ready to go to the post office in the morning ladies--so be on the lookout!

I will have access to my email and will be checking it as often as I can without getting slapped on the wrist by others telling me to "QUIT WORKING!" I will try to respond promptly, but bear with me. I look forward to working with you when I return.

Have a safe holiday weekend!
