We did our wedding invitations and we wanted a special seed paper not only was Carmela flexible but she also helped us find the paper. She made sure the printing was perfect and did a few proofs to be sure we liked the ink and the font. She was always available to answer our questions. The invitations were beautiful. We will always cherish the details of that special day!
Fiore Press did an absolutely amazing job on our wedding invitations. I had found an invitation I really liked on at sea but I didn't like the quality and the price so I went to Fiori press. What they were able to produce was something at much better quality with a reasonable price. I have had so many of my wedding guests tell me that my invitations were the most original and beautiful invitations they had ever seen. They were able to customize every last detail to my liking skillfully and professionally. Every other wedding paper vendor I considered could not come close to their ability to customize our invitations to make them special. Thank you Fiore Press.
My wife and I did not want the headache of having to deal with the details of our wedding invitations. We sat down with the folks at Fiore Press and were quickly impressed with the personal attention, the previous work that Carmela had done and the ease of getting what we wanted. My wife was really excited with the design ideas that Carmela presented to us along with the color schemes to match a fall wedding. we left feeling confortable with Carmela and her work. A number of weeks later, the inviations came and we were elated! The letterpress "stamping" was very cool....better than I thought it would be. My wife loved the colors and the design. We received so many positive comments about the invites and many asked who we worked with because they were elegant yet simple. If you want great service, honesty, creativity and a good value...then come to Fiore Press. Thanks Carmela!
When I started planning a preppy themed birthday party for my son's first birthday, I knew the invitations had to set the tone and so I set out looking for letterpress. I found one of Carmela's invitations floating around on Pintrest and fell in love with her style and attention to detail. She worked closely with me to make my vision come to life and helped me add other elements to my invitation like her suggestion of hand lining the envelopes the a fine paper. I'm very particular and the number one thing I am looking for in a custom project is an artist who has excellent communication skills. I was never in doubt about where we were in the process and what was going on. By phone or email or looking at Pinterest boards, Carmela was always easy to reach and kept me informed throughout the process so that we could collaborate until the final product was perfectly preppy! She also took the extra time to hand cut every one of my invitations. And of course the final product was so nicely packaged and a joy to open, which just shows you how paper is a passion for Carmela. You are in good hands with Fiore Press.
I cannot say enough about Carmela and Fiore Press. It is clear that she does impeccable work, but not only that, she is so wonderful and easy to work with. She takes any idea that you might have to the next level by adding her own creativity, insight, and expertise to it. She has done wedding shower invitations for me along with my actual wedding invitation (including a gorgeous map!), and I was beyond happy with both projects. The wedding invites were more complicated because there were so many components to them (invite, envelope, reply card, escort card, thank you note, etc.), but that didn’t seem to faze Carmela. They were produced within our timeframe and all of the pieces were cohesive and looked wonderful together. They really set the tone for our wedding. She understands what you want and gives you flawless work in return because she’s an absolute perfectionist. I love Carmela’s letterpress work and I highly recommend her for your next invitation or personalized stationery. You will not be disappointed.
Carmela's letterpress work is gorgeous! She's a pleasure to work with, too. I had a tight budget, but she was very flexible and accommodating, she did the beautiful letterpress work, and I did all of the rest of the work cutting and assembling the invites we worked together to design. I couldn't imagine better invites, I was really pleased how they turned out.
I am honored to be able to speak about Fiore Press. A friend of mine told me about this press and it was a godsend. Carmela created several beautiful pieces for me--an engagement/wedding announcement, a wedding invitation and the wedding program. Each of these unique pieces were treasures and stood on their own. Each piece had an originality that I had not seen before, nor have I seen since. Carmela was meticulous in her work. In addition, she was fun to work with and totally dedicated to the process from the beginning to the end. I would highly recommend her work to anyone who values high quality design.
