The Reviews Are In!
I've used an online consultation both times I’ve ordered from Paper Source. Very pleased both times. Today, Fern was able to make suggestions that greatly improved the appearance of the photo card and return address on the envelope.
My husband and I are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary, and we used your service to send out save the dates and future invitations for our party. I think they'll be spectacular!
I was dreading having to go into a store and being overwhelmed by too many options. The website and our options had us under-budget which was a huge relief. Thank you so much, we will be using Paper Source for ALL of our future invite needs!

During the appointment you and your specialist will work together to create what you need - Whether that's luxe wedding invitations, modern business stationery, or the most fun holiday photo card.

Once edits are completed, your order will be placed! Sit back, relax, and wait for your beautiful product to arrive.
1. Who will I be meeting with?
You will be meeting with one of our experienced specialists featured above. Check out their favorite styles and read a little about them ahead of your appointment!
2. Do I need to be on video for my appointment?
You do not need to be on video for your appointment.
3. What happens during the appointment?
During the appointment, our experts will work with you to establish which items you need, walk you through available designs, print methods, and extra special touches and ensure that all of the choices you make will work within your given timeline. Whether you're looking for luxe wedding invitations, new business stationery, or birthday party invitations, we will make sure that you leave your appointment with something amazing in the works. Have your own design already put together or have an extra unique vision? We’d love to see it and help you bring it to life!
4. What can't the specialists help with?
Our specialists are here to help you complete the personalized order of your dreams. However, if you’re having trouble navigating the website, placing a non-personalized order, or with the personalization process itself, please check out our FAQs page or reach out to Customer Service by phone or email instead of making a specialist appointment.
5. How long of an appointment should I book?
We offer four different types of appointments with our specialists: Wedding Consultation, Stationery Consultation, Party and Event Consultation, and Holiday Consultation. At one hour long, a Wedding Consultation is the lengthiest appointment you can book. Most wedding invitation planning requires the full hour but if you’re just on the hunt for some beautiful stationery or are planning this year’s holiday card, a thirty-minute appointment should be plenty of time.
6. What should I prepare for the appointment?
Ahead of the appointment we encourage you to both gather practical information and start exploring aesthetic inspiration. When you come to your appointment you should know basic information such as quantity needed, budget, and your timeline for receiving your personalized items. You should also have a general idea of what design or style you're looking for. Inspiration is always helpful to us - whether that's from our existing designs, Pinterest, or something you draw up yourself.
7. What happens after I place my order? Can I make changes?
After you’ve placed your order your specialist will pass on your order to our skilled design team. When your designer has created your items, you will receive a proof from them directly and will have the opportunity to work with them to make sure everything in your order is perfect. If you need to make any changes to your order before it goes to production, you’ll be able to do so during this time with the help of your designer and specialist. Once everything is finalized, your order will enter production and be shipped to you once complete.
