These arrived really quickly! The card stock is thick and dark so you'll need to right kind of pen for them. But they look great!

I ordered a custom sign for my friend's bachelorette party. Lindsey made a perfect design modeled after the couple's invitation suite. She was responsive, prompt, and reasonably priced. Most importantly, it looked great!

Beautifully screen printed with vibrant pink and a hint a dark electric blue/turquoise and with the gold foil layered on top! Made the perfect birthday card for my old high school chum and a huge David Bowie fan!
