What our clients are saying…

Ethan and I both agreed that setting the tone of our wedding was important but we were still unsure about our final “look.” Samantha sat down with me for a consultation and when she presented me with their ideas I was blown away. In fact, I had a very hard time deciding!! Design des Troy worked within our budget to create the most unique and beautiful invitation…EVER! Samantha went above and beyond to give me printing options and in the end we were even able to get letterpress! I couldn’t believe how great our invitations looked when they arrived. The design was timeless and everyone commented on how pretty they were. We were so happy with the level of service that we received and all of the support that we got along the way. I couldn’t imagine using another design team. Next up…baby announcements!

We loved working with Sam and Owen and were absolutely thrilled with the Save-the-Dates they created for us. From our very first conversation they took the time to understand our vision and objectives—and offered additional suggestions along the way on how to further our goals. We were hoping to create a classic postcard … Sam and Owen took that creative to a whole new level, mixing traditional, modern, and fun elements to reflect the mood of our event. They also had amazing attention to detail—in their designs, but also in thinking about things like the envelopes, stamps and return address labels—making the whole project cohesive.Aside from their design expertise, we were also extremely pleased with their professionalism and ability to set and meet timelines. They were always prompt and worked to deadline—this was especially impressive given much of our design timeline fell over the last part of December through early January.Ultimately, the final product is exactly what we wanted and really wowed our friends and family. We highly recommend Sam and Owen and look forward to having them do other important design projects for us in the future.

We sent out the invites on Monday and people are flipping out over how cool they are. Thanks again. We love them and are so glad we spent the extra cash for the letterpress. You guys did a fantastic job. My stepdad is a graphic designer and couldn’t say enough about how much he likes your work.

At long last, I’m writing you to officially thank you for all your hard work on the invitations, coasters and bowling shirts! We loved that you used the architecture of the de Young to inspire the design of the invitation. Several friends came up to me at the de Young party and said “We always thought the invitations were pretty and now we get it!” And everything for the bowling party was a huge hit. Everyone complimented the bride/groom bowling pin designs on our coasters and shirts. They were adorable :) And, you guys were great to work with! Thanks for all your patience with our endless comments during the design process.

Design des Troy created the perfect wedding invitation/announcement for our small wedding in San Francisco. I was an offset printer for over 20 years and Hal is an antique postcard and ephemera dealer/show promoter. We loved the aged background, vintage art elements on both sides of the postcard and custom lettering on the front. The cards were distributed as collectibles to postcard collectors at our shows and the responses ranged from “beautiful” to “I’m framing this.” I couldn’t have imagined a more appropriate piece to reflect the both of us. Thanks again Owen and Samantha!

From your first design meeting to the receipt of your finished invitation, it is an absolutely wonderful experience to work with Design des Troy. Our experience proved that Samantha and Owen are extremely professional, talented, and enthusiastic. They listened very carefully to our ideas about what we wanted, and showed a great deal of excitement for working on our project. Moreover, they included us in the design process, running proofs by us to make sure we were happy with how things were going. The best part, of course, was the end product. Who knew friends would actually call to comment that our invitations were so beautiful and unique? One friend, on his RSVP card, wrote, “PS—Best wedding invite ever.”
Bottom line is that Samantha and Owen designed an invitation that set the tone for our party. We think they’re awesome!

Samantha has worked on numerous design projects for my company Eden Cubed, Inc. She first designed a beautiful logo by hand for Mama Art Cafe, and later completed the design for over a hundred labels for my distribution business. My requests were particular and she gracefully worked within my parameters, while still bringing her own style to the designs. She made our image and branding contemporary yet timeless and was able to create a very dynamic label design using only one color to keep our printing budget low. Samantha and Owen are professional, thorough, and efficient and I look forward to working on more projects with Design des Troy.

I wanted to thank you for the invitations. They are flat-out awesome. Everyone has raved about them. I was telling my mom about a guy in my department who said he wished he were getting married again so he could have invitations as cool as ours. Thank you for your patience and diligence; we’re very grateful to work with people of your professionalism and creativity.

We recently had our wedding invitations designed by the extraordinary duo of Design des Troy. We were looking for something a bit on the non-traditional side, being that our party was going to be a bit different from what most of our guests had ever seen at a wedding before. We also wanted something that would suit our personalities. After meeting with Owen and Samantha and giving them a little window into who we were and what we were looking for, they created for us the most perfect reflection of exactly what we wanted in a wedding invitation. They were so easy to work with. Even when we didn’t know what we wanted, they did. They even found socks for the groomsmen to match the invitation! We will definitely be using their services again for all future design needs.

We have not gotten anything but positive comments on our birth announcements. I wanted something unique, special, and one of a kind, yet within my budget. You more than came through with a gorgeous design. I highly recommend you to everyone. I absolutely love the announcements and complimenting note cards and I was so impressed with how quickly you got everything done.

Even though we live on different coasts, we communicated well—often sending drafts back and forth and talking by phone. Samantha and Owen really listened to our ideas but at the same time contributed their creativity and expertise. We knew we were in good hands and in the end our invitations were exactly what we didn’t know we were envisioning.
