I ordered 160 Gold Signature Pocketfolds from Cards and Pockets. I swear they shipped almost immediately (okay, the next day- but still, that's fast). They arrived very quickly. They are even more beautiful in person than I could have imagined! They have this lovely shimmer to them and the paper feels very expensive. But actually they are incredibly reasonably priced. They are quick to respond to emails, and even left a nice little note on my receipt inside the package. They offer truly high quality products at such reasonable prices! I would've never been able to afford my dream invitations without them! I would recommend them to everyone.
We ordered invites, with silver backing paper, as well as reply and direction cards from Cards&Pockets. Everything looked great! We got proofs first which I highly recommend, since it allows you to view the finished product and make any edits you need. The colors and quality were great and we're very happy with the print job!
Only comment is that the website isn't as intuitive as it should be. It took a while to figure out how to order specific samples and in order to have anything custom done you need to email a representative instead of being able to do it directly form the website.
I bought my save the dates and all of the material to make my invitations from Cards & Pockets. They were easy to order from and all of my items arrived when expected and in perfect condition. The quality of the paper and envelopes exceeded my expectations and I got tons of compliments on how great my invitations looked. I would recommend Cards & Pockets to anyone looking for invitations. Love this company!
I ordered my envelopes, bellybands, and portfolios from this company. I did order samples first, which was great because I wasn't 100% sure about the quality or colors. The sample arrived within a few days of me ordering with free shipping. I really liked that they provided everything I requested and even included some suggestions and a quote based on my samples.
When I ordered the real things they came quickly and were just what I wanted. note: I did not order anything custom, so my order seemed pretty cut and dry. This is a great deal...
Cards and Pockets has been one of the worst companies that I have ever had to deal with. They have zero flexibility and refused to consider any type of accommodations due to a recent order for their 2x2 monogrammed cards. The "S" on the monogrammed cards appears to be an "F".
After speaking with 2 different people in their office all refused to help me because I did not order a sample.
As a result of this a have lost $100.00, and they would not even provide me with a discount for a reprint.
By far the worst company I have dealt with while planning my wedding.
I requested a sample that was supposed to have free postage. But when they arrived, my mail carrier told me that they hadn't put on any postage.... To get the card, I'd have to pony up $2. No big deal, but it seemed so cheesy, it left me with doubts. So, I called to give them a chance to apologize, credit the difference, etc.
Instead, the guy asked me to send documentation to prove I'd had to pay for the postage. Sadly, that made it clear that this company is incredibly cheesy. Definitely made me look elsewhere. Will try LCI and keep you posted.

Thank you for the candid review. This simply should not have happened as you've explained and does not line up with our policies regarding shipping errors. Our sincere apologies for the mistake with your sample postage and poor experience with us. It is always our highest priority to ensure the best experience for our customers.
Great product, and at a great price. The templates are easy to use. The sent the free samples very quickly, same with the actual order. It was so easy!
I used Cards and Pockets for my wedding invitations and they turned out amazing. I decided to make my own invitations because i had a 18 month engagement and had enough time to do it and figured I could save some money. My invitations really set the tone for my wedding. I wanted an elegant and upscale affair and the invitations set that tone. They looked twice as expensive as they really were and were very high quality. I was able customize the color and design to exactly what i wanted. Printing on the metallic paper was a bit of an issue and we ended up needing to but a laser color printer. This was fine for us since we needed a printer, but not sure how someone without the printer would print to this paper. Overall I would definitely recommend using cards and pockets to create your own invites if its something that interests you and you have the time.
I ordered all my invitations, seating cards, and thank you cards from Cards&Pockets. They look really pretty! Very fast shipping also.
I ordered samples of the different colors I was considering first, which really helped. The cards were beautiful, and I printed them myself. I also ordered custom round menus from their print shop, and they were GORGEOUS. It's difficult to get a picture into the right format, but they were very helpful. It wasn't cheap, but it was worth the money for the results I got.
I wish that I had read some of the other reviews on here before I ordered the envelopes and pockets for my wedding invitations from C&P. I purchased almost 700 envelopes and 200 of their Signature Pocket Invitations. While I will say that the pocket material was sturdy and the color was beautiful, the dimensions are absolutely not what I needed. When you click on the pocket that you want, you can scroll down to select the color and order from there. The only dimensions that were listed said that it was 5" x 7," so I assumed that the pocket was going to be roughly the same size. Boy was I wrong. I called customer service asking for a shipping label so that I did not have to pay for their misguided website issues and they were more than unfriendly to me. I asked to speak to the manager, and he practically told me that if I searched all over his website, I would find the dimensions of the pocket that are tucked away under the scrolling header on the top of the pocket page. He offered no sympathy or customer friendliness and told me that I "should't have a problem returning the pockets." I am returning the items today, and will be livid if they say that I did not package the items correctly. I told him that I will never use their website again or recommended them to anyone, and it was as if he did not care. Here goes nothing...

I would highly recommend checking out Cards & Pockets during your invitation search. Everyone I worked with was incredibly nice and helpful. The prices were extremely affordable and the quality of my invitations were even better than I expected. My invitations are very plain, but I dressed them up with an envelope liner. I've gotten tons of compliments and would use C&P again without a second thought. In fact, they'll be printing my programs, too!
I loved the pocket folder invitation and ordered the sample packet with some sample colors. Erin was extremely helpful and replied to all of my emails almost instantly! The turnaround time for our wording was literally the same day (thank you, John!) and the invitations are beautiful! We had them matte a separate color which matches the ink. They look classy and just gorgeous! It was such a painless process and I couldn't be more grateful and happier.
I used Cards & Pockets for our DIY invitations. It saved us SO much money!
The women I emailed back and forth were really helpful as well and usually emailed me back right away, even after 5 pm. I also used them for printing the parts of the invitations and that worked really well too. Everything shipped really quickly and got here right away (they are based in MA and I'm in NJ so it wasn't that far to go either). I ordered samples of the paper to truly see color and I really suggest that everyone do that. Also, definitely get a sample if you use them to print. Was helpful to really see it before I ordered 100 of everything. Definitely recommend them though!
I created all my stationery using Adobe Illustrator and sent my PDFs to Cards and Pockets for proofing and printing. They were an excellent value for the quality! I will definitely use their printing services for future stationery needs.
I used Cards & Pockets to make my wedding invitations. I ordered samples beforehand as they suggested to make sure the colors were what I wanted. Once I placed my full order it came very quickly and everything was in good shape. The quality of their materials is excellent for the price you are paying. My invitations looked amazing and I received many compliments about them from my guests . To make 125 invitations, it cost me less than $200.
Great product for the price! I did DIY invitations and they came out great!
Best place if you want high quality products but for reasonable prices.
very good prices ...great costumer service
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Cards & Pockets!!! Not only are they a local company, but they were very responsive and helpful in helping me with my custom print order. There are many colors and options to choose from to make your invitation suite as unique and personal as you want. The Print Shop at Cards & Pockets did a beautiful job with our fine-detailed, personally designed invitation. Though we could have gone the route of having Cards & Pockets assemble everything, my then-fiance and I decided to do it ourselves which was easy and not too time-consuming.
If I could give it 10 stars I would!
