There was one shop that I kept coming back to, and that was Down-to-Earth Paperworks out of St. Louis. Once I started scrolling through Down-to-Earth’s designs on Etsy and its own website, I saw that designer Menna Etheridge was a fan of bold colors and clean designs. I didn’t see anything in my desired color scheme, but I saw from her portfolio that custom orders wouldn’t be a problem.
Menna took my initial design ideas and quickly turned around proofs filled with an array of options, including the mixing and matching of several different fonts, paper colors, digital calligraphy, and even custom motifs inspired by photos I had sent her. The entire process, from the first sample order to the full invitation delivery, really could not have gone more smoothly. Menna was even a superstar when I had to email with a major change after our final paperwork and payment had been sent in…and she still beat her delivery deadline! Talk about a professional.
Of course, Down-to-Earth has more paper goods to offer, too. If you’re in the market for table numbers, programs, or anything else wedding or party related, be sure to check out Menna's work.
