Budgetary considerations and rigid timelines that come along with planning a party especially when it is one's own shower, fiesta or simple get-together can be an important time that everyone wants to go smoothly. The last thing anyone wants to have happen is to spend hours researching the perfect invitations only to have the delivered product be sub-par quality, not what was expected, the colors to be wrong or for the order to be short with only days to be addressed and mailed. That would be a nightmare scenario.
Luckily, I had similar questions about the quality of the invitations I designed using Zazzle's online service so, I ordered three styles. What I found was that I received the order within the time frame promised. Great news for anyone with a timeline to adhere to! Next, the quality of the "recycled" paper option was texturally pleasing and had a nice eggshell quality that is accommodating to many inks. Plus, there were one extra invitation & one extra envelope each in the order to account for handwritten mistakes. Best of all, I was very surprised to find the print colors to be nearly identical to what is represented online. I was in awe of the technology allowing this to be possible. What a relief for me as the designer of this custom stationery to know the product my customers will receive is excellent!
Unfortunately for me, I do not get to meet and speak to people who have shopped my designs on-line. I miss out on assisting with details of a design unless someone requests one directly from me. But luckily, I contract with an outstanding print company whom I can trust to deliver exactly the quality & customer service party planners deserve.
