I'm over the moon, for real.

Woman. I'm OBSESSED with the invitations. They are remarkable! The letterpress, the foil, the postage, the calligraphy. I practically want to cuddle them! They are truly works of art. You are so talented. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I felt like I was collaborating with a friend.

Working with Paper & Honey was a joy from start to finish! I had never worked with a letterpress printer before, but seeing the caliber of their work, I trusted 100%. Laura was so helpful in walking me through the process, sending paper samples, providing clear instructions for setting up files, and more. The cherry on top is her sunny personality —

Wedding planning felt stressful and frustrating,

I feel so lucky to have worked with Laura! I was indecisive about my invitation design, and she helped make the picture in my mind come true. The process was organized and clear, and I received so many compliments from friends. Even opening the UPS packages was satisfying!

It makes my job easier, every time.

I know my client will receive a product made properly, from start to finish. They once alerted me that the letterpress plate was missing the dot over an "i," and they reprinted to ensure it was done correctly, without question. The team literally made sure to cross their "t"s and dot their "i"s and continue to do so with every order I place. Thank you for your precision and care shown for every client piece!

Printing with P&H gives me confidence as a business owner.
