Invitation Emergency

I'm sure this has been posted before, but I'm having trouble searching for it.

Where's a good place to get customized invitations (ie a brick-and-mortar store)?

I've been searching for designs on several online sites for months, finally settled on the one design me and my parents agreed on, but the company can't change it to the color we want! I just want to be able to specify a design style and color, and have someone take care of the rest! (It's difficult finding simple invitations which have deep red as a main color).

    I saw a big book of invites to pick from at Swoozie's - not sure if they have red, but they seemed to have a big selection.

    Good luck

    Try Mi-Te Printing in Chicago. They have many books to look through, plus they have designers who can custom design your invitations.

    Papyrus on Diversey & Clark has many invitation books and does custom invitations.  Also consider Pulp & Ink on Wells and Jane Weber ink at the 900 N. Michigan Ave shops.

    Yellow Bird in Wilmette has a ton of books to look through and the people there are really helpful- in particular the owner Bern and his daughter Cynthia.
