  • Based on other reviews, I very disappointed with the experience we had with Fingers in Ink. We hired Fingers in Ink for our save the dates and wedding invitations. Our first meeting with Nicole went well, and we developed a game plan for our save the dates. Afer that, our experiences started quickly going south. There was a real lack of urgency on Nicole's end to respond to simple requests and tweaks to our save the dates. Turn around times for small changes such as a different font took over a week, and when the product was returned, it was a completely different layout. She let us know that she didn't understand the instructions from our planner so instead of reaching out to me (she had my direct info) or my planner, she did what she thought, and it wasn't what we had requested. Due to this, we lost another week on our save the dates and were behind in production schedule once again. Once we received the product, they looked fine, and we sent them out to our guests. She also let us k... Read more

    I apologize, Solianna and Toshiro, that your experience was not pleasant. FINGERS IN INK prides itself on providing outstanding customer service. I think it is very important to have platforms where client(s) can express themselves, something I welcome, because it keeps me accountable and it allows the client(s) to share their experience. However, it is essential that the client(s) be truthful about the experience. You have not given an accurate account of this experience. I was instructed by your planner to only communicate through her. She felt it important to filter all communication. So, the delays and communication breakdown began with the translating of your corrections and changes to the Save the Dates. Because, I have a proofing process which requires the client(s) to see every change made before the order is placed into production, You and Toshiro were required to proof the order and sign off on it before the order could go to print. This is standard practice, no exceptions! Everything met with your approval and expectation. I always do quality control before passing along an order to client(s). I noticed that one (1) out of one-hundred and forty (140) announcements were not printed properly. It was not printed the way it was sent to the printer. (The last letter of the guest's last name was not printed). It was not sent to the printer this way. You saw the final proof, which you approved and knew it was not this way. To correct the situation, I had my preferred calligrapher address the Save the Date Postcard that day! AND just in case you wanted this one (1) Save the Date Postcard to look like the others, I had the printer do a rush reprint of that Postcard. After speaking with your planner, she informed me that you wanted me to send out the one(1) Postcard that my calligrapher addressed. I am so glad that you provided images of your Save the Date Postcards for people to see. I believe that your complaint with regards to the damaged Postcards lies squarely with the U.S. Postal Service. On three (3) occasions during your consultation (when discussing going with the postcard option), in writing before you picked up the order and in-person when picking up the order, I stressed the importance of having the Save the Date Postcards hand cancelled, so they would not be machine metered. (In the images you can see the cards have been machine metered because the damage on the edges is from the metering machine.) I cannot be held accountable for damage to cards that I stressed could not handle the metering machine. Also, during the consultation, I suggested that you might want to place the announcements in envelopes because postcards get bumped around in the process of mailing. You voted for no envelope just the postcard! Your planner called me very frantic and almost in tears, I wanted to help her to help you, so I offered to reprint the Save the Date Postcards that were received poorly in the mail. She said that you were so dissatisfied and wanted a full refund or you would trash me on all review platforms (which you have done; Yelp, TheKnot and Wedding Wire.) I told your planner, that I was not concerned with you posting a poor review. I was not going to be blackmailed into providing a full refund for a client’s dissatisfaction because they clearly did not follow the advice as provided. The Save the Date Postcards would have arrived intact if you had adhered to the written and verbal instructions as provided. This situation was very unfortunate and I would have preferred a much better outcome and experience . I wish you and Toshiro all the best on your upcoming wedding celebration!
