We used MJ & Carte Blanche for our wedding invitations/stationary. I had a VERY specific vision in mind for the wedding stationary and I had a lot of difficulty finding a vendor who I was confident could make it happen and that didn't ask for an arm and a leg. The quality of the final product blew me away and far surpassed what I was expecting!Sent on 03/10/2018

We didn't want to spend a lot of money on our invitations, but we still wanted them to look professional and match our theme and colours - a pretty tall order! Enter MJ Fontaine at Carte Blanche Design. Her off-the-rack selection of cards was exactly what we needed, and the design we ended up selecting turned out to be the inspiration for a lot of our decor! We made a few small upgrades to complete the look.Sent on 20/09/2014
The off-the-rack selection is somewhat less quality than if you had custom cards done, but for our needs and budget, it was perfect. MJ was very accommodating and I would highly recommend Carte Blanche Design.

The colour theme for our wedding was orange, white, with accents of grey. We had a great modern venue in downtown Toronto and wanted our invitations and stationary to be simple yet creative and modern. Carte Blanche offered a great off the rack design that we were able to use to customize with our colors and vision in mind. Not only did we get our invitations, we ended up ordering all the signage and stationary needed for our wedding day - seating chart, menus, favor tags, ceremony details (lists the wedding party and parents, and ceremonial activities), table numbers. It all looked so seamless and really tied the theme together. We received a lot of compliments! Josie was a pleasure to work with and really made our vision and specific details come to life! Thanks again!Sent on 15/01/2016
