"Sara was a joy to work with. She came highly
recommended by my wedding planner, and for good reason. Within
of contacting her, we had a phone meeting set up for that same
afternoon. I worked with her to custom design wedding
invitations and she was responsive, organized and knowledgeable.
I was very happy with the beautiful design, and she was
a delightful part of my wedding planning process!"
"Sara's work is phenomenal-professional,
beautiful, and she's highly creative and flexible with her
clients. She gets very little
feedback from me, but really leverages the information she gets
to provide great proofs for review. Once I land on my logo,
I'll be using Sara for follow-up business graphic design
including post cards, business cards, etc. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."

Heilwagen Paper + Photography was the best decision we made in
planning our wedding (except the "I Do" part)! Sara is
experienced, incredibly timely and so understanding of the
stresses and emotions of everything surrounding the big day.
worked to guarantee that all of our print materials were perfect
and exactly what we had in mind. We were able to give her
vague ideas of what we wanted and she turned those ideas into
reality. We received more comments from guests about
Sara's work than any other facet of the wedding. We have since
recommended her to many friends and they are spreading
the word to their friends. Take some of the stress away and
choose Sara, you won't regret it!"
Save the Dates & Wedding Invitations
loved both our save-the-date postcards and wedding invitations!
Sara was very helpful and flexible, and answered all of my
questions completely every time. For both items, she skillfully
adjusted a previous design to fit a slightly different style
took into account our colors and theme beautifully! Our friends
and family are also raving. I am thankful to have found Sara,
her wonderful skill, creativity, and being so great to work

was fantastic, creative, responsive and fun to work with.
She designed our save the dates, wedding invitations, brunch

It was great to have a common theme in everything that went into
our wedding weekend. She did a great job of finding a
common theme, but making everything unique. Her prices are

"Absolutely love the address stamp I
ordered. Very unique design and easy to use. I
have gotten so many compliments on it
that I ordered one for my parents. Sara sent a sample for me to
preview extremely quickly and I received the stamps in record
time. Absolutely no complaints and I would recommend Sara

"As a bride it can be very difficult to make sure things
are done well and done to your standards. I have to say,
Sara has done a
fabulous job! Both my mother and I were impressed once
we saw the program fans and cookie tags in person she

As a bride you typically know exactly what you are
wanting before you begin searching for something. Since
our wedding is
outdoors I wanted our programs to be transformed into fans.
I looked everywhere and couldn't find anything with the design,
format, or my color scheme I had in mind. To be honest I
was probably a "difficult bride", I bet I emailed her over half
times and she never complained about changing, adding or giving
me suggestions to create the final product.
She even suggested
I mail her a color swatch to try and match the "blue" I wanted
to use as close as possible! She was so wonderful to work
talented, and extremely friendly!! I can not wait to show
off my program fans and cookie tags for our favors at our

highly recommend her to my friends and family!!"

with Sara was unbelievably easy. She allowed us the flexibility
to customize one
of her designs to go with the theme of
our wedding, and worked with us to make sure that the paper type
and quality was exactly as we wanted it. She was incredibly
fast and immediately responsive to questions and concerns. We
can't recommend her enough!"
Wedding Invitations & Thank You Notes
like to let other brides and grooms know how amazing our invites
turned out. We absolutely loved them. And even though
we are all
way over in the UK, Sara was brilliant in responding and got
them sorted in such a quick time. She made the slight

in no time at all and we would definitely recommend her to
anybody wanting not only beautiful
invites, but someone who

always grab people's attention. I will be employing Sara's

with Sara was so easy. We didn't have the advantage of meeting
her face to face to work out the details of what we
wanted. I was nervous that getting her to understand what we
wanted would be difficult via email, but she got it almost
right with the first draft. I still can't figure out how she
made sense out of the picture I had in my head and managed to
more incredible than I even imagined it. In fact, she did so
well on the invitations for our wedding, we decided to have her
programs too. I will definitely recommend her to friends and use
her design expertise again in the future. "
