I ordered my 'whale' save the dates w/Gray Star Design 9/16. I was very indecisive with colors and Melissa was extremely accommodating and made me a ton of proofs before I settled on the perfect one. She was also quick to respond to any question I had, never taking longer than a few hours to get back to me. I had my S.T.D.s within 3 days of ordering which was amazing. She takes such care in her packaging & the quality of the paper/envelopes was much better than I was anticipating for the affordable price. I would def recommend this shop to anyone!!  ~ Patti, Massachusetts

Melissa was amazing to work with us on this custom baby shower design which included invitations, registry inserts and thank you cards. She was always quick to respond. Very happy with the final product!

I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate you! You are a gifted artist and designer, and a consummate professional. Your work on the memorial postcard for my Dad was beautiful and the turn around time was outstanding. you took my vague and disjointed ideas and quickly developed a gorgeous product. More beautiful than I could've imagined. Thank you!

Melissa, I don't say this enough, but you are seriously a lifesaver with all this stuff right now. I can't imagine how differently this would have turned out had I ended up working with someone else or ordering from a big company! I appreciate it so much, especially now that the wedding date is so close!
~ Piyali, California

These cards were beautiful and sweet; I know my bridesmaids will love them. Melissa is a breeze to communicate with and she set up a custom listing in no time! I highly recommend Melissa and Gray Star Design!

album design + accessories

Melissa did an amazing job on our wedding album! It is exactly what I wanted. Not only am I happy with the book, I am also very pleased with the excellent service I received from her. She is very organized, detailed and great with responding promptly. Highly recommended!  ~ Jade, Connecticut

Melissa designed a stunning wedding album for us! We provided her with our photos, in the order we'd like to see them, and she laid them out beautifully. The matte finish looks fantastic, along with the font she chose for readings and song lyrics we provided her. We love the yellow ochre cover and pearl lining. She also included a charming keepsake--a print on nice paper with lyrics to our processional song beside it. So lovely! She brought our pictures to life and we are so thankful!  ~ Carolyn, New York

Stunning wedding album. We added photos and pages, the box with ribbon made it a special keepsake. The overall quality was beyond what I expected.
~ Kelly, California

As a surprise for my 1st anniversary, I worked with Melissa to put together our wedding album - the finished product was so beautiful and it was a pleasure to work with her. She also made the process incredibly easy and a lot of fun. To start, I picked out the photos I absolutely wanted included, and then turned the project over to her. She chose the remaining photos, and then began iterating the layout. She got my input at every step of the way and was able to deliver mockups with the changes I suggested very quickly. The finished product was truly a work of art that I know we'll treasure for the rest of our lives. I would definitely recommend working with Melissa and can't wait until I have another album for her to work on.  ~ Hannah, New Hampshire

Melissa picked the perfect photo from our wedding and designed a beautiful box for the even more beautiful album she worked with me to create for our 8th anniversary. She was so communicative every step of the way, respecting all my revisions, even under a time crunch. A great experience and a fabulous, high-quality keepsake. I highly recommend Melissa's work and Melissa herself!
