"We hired Pink Custom Design to do all our wedding paper items and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for something unique and coordinated! We worked with Kelly and she helped bring our vision to life. From our save the dates to our invites to our stickers on our welcome bags, everything was beautiful and went together without being "matchy-matchy." She used the same colors but made everything item look just a little different and special. Everything was on time and within budget with her. We were so happy with how everything turned out that our family hired to her to do other personalized cards for us! She was patient with us as we made numerous tiny changes to the program and invitations. Kelly and Pink Design will provide you with incredible print materials for your wedding and bring your personality and vision to life on paper. Thank you!!" - August 2013 bride

"My Pink Custom Design save-the-dates and wedding invitations were so elegant and beautifully made. They take the time to discuss exactly what your vision is and take all the steps needed to assure they design exactly what that is. I'm so grateful to have had them be a part of my wedding planning process. The invitations set the stage for your event. All of my guests were so impressed. I highly recommend using Pink Custom Design for your special event." - July 2013 bride

"Not only were the ideas creative and unique they would take our ideas and help turn them into reality. They were flexible to work with and the quality of what you get far surpasses the expense. I searched idea boards, magazines, and websites for months looking for ideas and I am confident Pink is the only one that made all of my print materials perfect." - September 2012 bride

"I have ordered my invitations from PINK. I received many compliments on how elegant my invitations are! I loved hearing that people can actually see the value in what I have ordered. I loved working with Kelly; she has been my main contact and has helped me so much even during her pregnancy/delivery days! Thanks again for everything!!"   - October 2012 bride

"The invitations were beautiful and I received so many compliments on them! My invitations were the first impression I gave for my wedding and they were perfect! Kelly was so easy to work with and provided all the invitations in more than enough time!" - August 2010 bride

"I worked with Holly from Hand Made By Pink and she exceeded my expectations!! My wedding was this past June and I wanted to theme everything around my favorite flowers, daises. I told Holly my vision and she brought it to life through my invitations, church programs, place cards and menus. She also made the numbers for my tables and framed them. Everything tied together exactly how I wanted!!! As soon as our guests got the invitations in the mail, I received soooooooo many compliments on them! I am also having Holly design my Christmas cards using one of our wedding pictures. I will definitely continue to give Hand Made by Pink my business in the future and I would highly recommend them to everyone!! Thanks Holly : )" - June 2010 bride

"I worked with Kelly at handmadebypink. They were chosen for us by our wedding planner, Big City Bride. We looked at her samples, chose the cardstock, and let Kelly work from there! She gave us beautiful, creative invitations, thank you cards, and tented table menus that fit in with our theme of pink and orange polka dots. Everything even had hand-placed rhinestones...everyone is still raving about our invites to this day! She did a unique program, which also served as a fan for our hot July wedding. I thought Kelly was easy to communicate with and readily available to make changes that I requested. I felt it was also reasonably priced given all of the materials and hard work that went into making our invites special and unique! I definitely recommend handmadebypink!"  - July 2010 bride

"Kelly was great and able to create an invitation with the exact image and colors I wanted. She was easy to meet with and let me have creative control of what I wanted but made helpful suggestions as well. She was good about getting back to me in a timely fashion and contacting me in the weeks before the wedding to determine if I needed any wedding extras (like programs and menu cards). I will consider Handmade by Pink in the future for invitation needs and would highly recommend them to other brides." - October 2010 bride

"I had the best experiences with Handmadebypink! I worked with Kelly for my July wedding. I didn't have anything that specific in mind and was able to choose the perfect design, paper and colors from looking through all the awesome stuff they have already done. There are so many options to choose from and Kelly made it that much easier for me to make my decisions by listening to all of the details of my wedding. She was also able to make good suggestions on the wording as my husband's parents are separated (wanted to make sure to get that one right:) One of the coolest things they created for me was my reception seating chart!! They printed it on canvas and its hanging in our guest bedroom today. I just love it and received so many compliments from our guests -they had never seen anything like it:) Because of my positive experience with handmadebypink, I have used them for my works needs as well. They have created custom thank you cards for our employees to give customers, our summer picnic, Holiday party, service awards dinner invitations, place cards, and programs. Everyone at work is always so impressed with them! Thank you Kelly and Holly!" - Kim

"Handmade by Pink is fabulous and I'd recommend their services to anyone! They created unique and beautiful wedding programs for us and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. The selection and ordering process was so easy and stress free! Kelly and Holly are wonderful to work with and I feel they really listened to my needs and exceeded my expectations."    - Jackie

"Handmade by Pink was great to work with. They did amazing work and met all my wedding deadlines. They are extremely responsive and have creative ideas for invitations and wedding programs. The pricing is very reasonable and will leave a lasting impression with your guests."  - Jill

"I just wanted to say a quick thank you for creating my save-the-dates.  I really appreciate all your work and effort to make exactly what I was hoping for come true.  I've gotten so many compliments on them from so many people. They are one of a kind! Thanks again!"  -Tiffany
