The ladies at Paper Source were helpful from our Save the Dates to our invitations to our table and place cards. They were super friendly and genuinely excited about paper and paper products! Now I am just looking for excuses to send invitations. :)
I purchased the paper for my invitations (which I designed and had printed myself) from Paper Source, both in-store (at the Oak Park location) and online. Bargain shopper that I am, I designed my invites using paper that was on clearance for 50% off...only hitch was that clearance merch is non-returnable, and sometimes hard to find what you need, so there's some risk involved with that approach. But if you can make it work, you get beautiful paper for a great price! Plus, they offer a volume discount (even on clearance merch) when you order 10 pkgs or more of the same item.
A little pricey, but totally worth it. Very unique designs. Also easy to "do it yourself", but also purchase the parts you don't want to do yourself.
I used the do it yourself invitations from papersource. It was beautiful and not expensive, a little time consuming though.
We actually made our own invitations, favors, and programs and but bought all of our materials from paper source. They have great quality stuff and shipping was real fast. They have a huge assortment of goods and tons of advice for DIY projects. They also have their own line of finished invitations.
