"It was such a treat to work with Katie to create our wedding invitations
and day-of stationery. She is so talented and passionate about her work.
On top of that she is professional, detail oriented and responsive.
Our final product was unique to our story and set the tone for our special day. I cannot recommend her enough!"

"Katie! Girl, if you ever need inspiration just come to me to gush over how IMPORTANT you are to me. If it weren’t for your gorgeous and thoughtful work, I would not have had the wedding I wanted. I got so many requests on who did the work and how gorgeous the invitations were-they could NOT believe someone hand-drew the sketch of the museum and then had it transferred into letterpress. You are simply perfection."

"It was such a great experience working with Katie on our wedding invitations. I reached out to Katie with little to no idea what I wanted my invitations to look like. She took some information from me about my wedding venue and color scheme and from there came up with the perfect design. Katie then made our rehearsal dinner invitations, ceremony programs and escort cards. Each piece tied together perfectly. She made my dream wedding stationary with only a small amount of input from me.Working with Katie from start to finish was very easy and stress free, and I have recommended her to everyone I know that is looking for wedding stationary!"

"My fiance and I used Katie at Bluebird for our letterpress wedding invitations and she was so fabulous, easy and FUN to work with!
I was stressed looking for the perfect invitation suite, but when I came across Katie's Instagram I knew I had found the one.
She created a custom wax seal with beautiful blue ribbon to go around the invite. I've never gotten so many compliments before and they turned out even better than I could have imagined. She also had great tips on how to work with the post office in mailing the invitations out. I will definitely be recommending Katie to my friends who will be getting married in the future!"

"Katie was so great to work with! She was helpful with all my wedding details (and would  even give random advice where needed, outside of invitations!).  Invitations were a priority for me and she made the whole process so fun and customized... I felt like I could do whatever I wanted with them and she worked with me on everything (fonts, layout, images, etc...). We also got all our day of stationary from her and it all came together so well. I would definitely recommend Katie if you're looking for a stylish and upscale invitations and stationary suite. Being in Chicago made it easy for our initial interview to look at paper and colors but everything else we did was over the phone so I'd imagine would be easy to do from afar as well!

"I can't begin to explain how awesome it was working with Katie on our wedding stationery. She was so patient with me through many changes and my overly-specific requests. We were complimented over and over by our guests on the elegance and beauty of our wedding invitations. I was very impressed by Katie's talent, professionalism, and the final product overall. Bluebird Paper Company was a definite pleasure to work with, and I recommend Katie's services to any couple looking for beautiful wedding stationery!

Katie's exemplary detail and professional advice on our invitation suite.
She continually delivered superb quality with ease!
Her artistic style and quick responses made this process seamless!

"Katie is so very talented and a pleasure to work with! She designed my invitation suite and all of the day-of stationary. I had a few ideas of what I wanted, which included a sketch of our venue, and she blew me away with what she created. She hand sketched the design for us and painted the most beautiful envelope liners. Several guests told me they squealed when they opened the invitation because they were so beautiful (No exaggeration...I saw one friend do it myself!). Not only the design element but Katie's paper and ribbons are also nicer than any invitations I've seen. The hand-dyed ribbon she uses is absolutely gorgeous.
My invitations were one of my favorite parts of my wedding because
it's something I can hold on to forever!"

KATIE + WYATT

"I came into the process not knowing exactly what I wanted or what I was looking for and Katie was able to guide me through every step (from design to production to mailing) providing suggestions, ideas and advice along the way. Katie is an absolute pleasure to work with! Not only does she have an incredibly friendly and approachable personality, but she is so creative and has such amazing vision for her designs! The quality of her work is truly unmatched, and I could not be happier with how everything came out. She made sure every little detail was not only perfect but also personalized to my husband and I.
And the quality of her materials is AMAZING!
The hand-dyed silk ribbon she uses to tie the suite together is to die for!"

"We used Katie for our Notre Dame wedding invitations and truly couldn't be happier. When I was initially looking at invitation options, nothing stood out. I wanted something special that wouldn't go in the trash. Then I found Katie's invitations, which are absolutely beautiful. Katie was great to work with and was accommodating with our schedule, requests, and feedback. We sent out the invitations last month and immediately had guests texting us to tell us how much they loved them. I have had multiple people tell me that they are having theirs framed!"

"Katie worked with me and my husband to design the most beautiful Save the Dates and wedding Invitations that fit us perfectly! We went into our first video chat with Katie having no clear idea on what we wanted, but she was great at giving us some ideas but also listening to what was important to us. We wanted our wedding to beeco-friendly, so we were definitely excited by her recycled paper options that still looked elegant. Our friends and family had nothing but wonderful things to say about our Save the Dates and our Invitations..and thank goodness for Katie's beautiful calligraphy skills since our writing is chicken scratch!"

"My fiancé and I worked with Katie on our Save the Dates and Invitations, and the process could not have been more professional, nor more inspired.

As we collaborated long distance across the country, Katie was incredibly responsive, flexible, and continued to deliver above and beyond our expectations. With her expert guidance, extra touches of brilliance, and even some surprises along the way, we could not have asked for a more perfect,
no-stress design and development process."

"I searched for a long time to find someone to create my wedding invites. As soon as I sat down for a meeting with Katie I knew that she would be the one to design them. She is so talented and was just fantastic throughout the entire process. She is truly passionate about her work and I really appreciated that. I showed her my dress, my venue, and described the feel of my wedding and how I wanted my invites so come across to guests, and she did the rest. I wanted her artistic ability to show through and that's exactly what happened."

"Katie is simply a dream to work with. She was prompt, professional
and continuously made me feel confident in my selections.
Her calligraphy and my vintage stamps were the icing on the cake, and
she made my Parisian vision come to life with ease.
 I loved my invitations so much, we asked her to create  custom gold foil stationery for us for our my thank you cards!
And now we're working together again on my Christmas cards.
As you can tell, I am hooked!"

"Katie is amazing at what she does! I used Bluebird Paper Company for my wedding invitations. I was running behind with everything and needed to act quick on something. I went to Katie for help and she was extremely responsive, professional, but also had a fun quirk about her that made me like her even more! I put all my faith into Katie and she came up with beautiful designs that matched the flow of my wedding. Let me tell you... she get its. She got everything created and printed in time for me to send everything out. But she didn't stop there! I was busy with being out of town for a while and she was able to stamp them for me and send them out as well. She saved me big time!"
