I found Ephemera Custom Letterpress and Tara, the owner, at the Seattle Bridal Show a few months ago. There were around 15-20 different wedding invitation booths at the show and I was on a mission to find someone to make my invitations so I went around to all of the booths and talked with everyone about what type of invitations they do and signed up for meetings with most of them. At the end of the day, both my friend and I thought that Tara made the best impression on us, so I decided to have my meeting with her first to talk about design and print ideas.
It only took about 5 minutes into the meeting for me to know that Tara was definitely the one that I wanted to do my invitations. Not only was she extremely organized and excited about my wedding, my colors, and to talk about her design ideas she was also extremely sweet! I canceled all my other appointments the next day and began working with Tara shortly after.
She was very helpful throughout the entire process and helped my choose colors and paper, and even helped me word my invitations....she saved me a lot of time!! She designed a unique and beautiful motif for my invitations, that included the invitations, the reply cards, the rehearsal dinner invites, and beautiful silk ribbon to tie all the pieces together - she is a very talented and creative artist/designer.
One of my favorite things about working with Tara was probably the fact that she was so willing to work with me and my budget! She designed a special package of paper goods to work with my budget and was great about making suggestions and where I was able to save money!
I would highly recommend Tara, and Ephemera Custom Letterpress if you are looking for any paper products or wedding invitations. I just received mine in the mail last week and they are absolutely gorgeous!!
