"Wow! My first reaction to my invitations is one of speechlessness. You know, long before I was engaged I thought about what my wedding invitations would look like, and even after all of my thoughts and ideas and putting things together, the final product exceeds all of my dreams and expectations.

As a fellow artist I can see and appreciate your attention to detail artistically and professionally. Being able to incorporate my father's handwriting into my invitations means so much to me and seeing my design so elegantly letterpressed pretty much has put me at a loss for words, except to say, "Wow! My invitations are so beautiful!" Joanna, I really could not be happier and you really made this so easy for me. I truly look forward to working with you again in the future."

Thank you so much for everything,

"When I was looking at wedding invitations I realized how beautiful letterpress looked and I wanted that same formality for my wedding. I interviewed different vendors but I came across Joie Designs Ltd. via the Internet. What distinguished Joie Designs from the others is her willingness to be flexible. She worked around my schedule and that is essential when planning a wedding. I could illustrate my ideas to Joanna in person, via email, and by phone; and, she was able to capture my vision immediately, this was critical to someone like me who waited until 5 months before the wedding to look for a designer. Joanna is so incredibly down to earth. 

She always listened attentively to what I was looking for and offered wonderful suggestions about other aspects of my wedding. It's great to work with someone who makes you feel relaxed when you are stressed about all the little details that will make your wedding unique. As a result of Joanna's diligence and attention to the same details that I tried to incorporate throughout my wedding, I have received countless compliments on the invitations. Thank you so much!!"

"Joanna is a pleasure to work with and made the invitation selection process a breeze.  She is extremely creative and flexible enough to work with any budget.  I wish all of the vendors I worked with were as great as Joie Designs!"

"As soon as plans for opening my wedding planning firm became concrete and I began designing my business cards and stationery, I knew that I wanted them letterpressed. Joanna immediately worked with me to find the best paper and ink colors for my very particular look. I love my stationary sets and get compliments every time I give out a business card or send someone a letter.  I’m also asked all the time for Joanna’s name and number… which I am always happy to pass on.

When Joanna letterpressed my business stationery I was able to view her custom wedding portfolio. It was my pleasure to start referring brides to her.  In every case, the wedding sets Joanna designed and produced were exquisitely beautiful.  In addition, each couple felt their invitations truly represented their distinctive wedding style."

"I worked with Joie Designs to create a holiday card for my newly expanded, inter-faith family.  We had just had our son and wanted to share our joy with our friends and family.

Throughout the design process, I felt like I was able to share my ideas, which were then creatively translated into a beautiful holiday card.  We received so many compliments on it -- especially since it was the first most people had seen featuring both a menorah and a Christmas tree.  Joie Designs did a fabulous job representing
our family and our sentiments for the season!!"
