Lion in the Sun is incredible! If I were able to give a ten start rating, I would. I work in PR and have worked with fine stationery brands such as Bernard Maisner and Dempsey & Carroll. The quality of paper, brands and expertise at Lion in the Sun is exceptional! Melinda, the owner is a true professional who knows her paper and stationery through and through. She is efficient and really understands what her clients want based on needs, event, style, etc. She does not try to oversell you on quantities at all. Prices in general are reasonable and the turn-around time is flexible. I recently ordered the save the dates for my wedding, personalized note cards and my wedding inviations at Lion in the Sun and wouldnt dream of going anywhere else...EVER. My sister who was with me also ordered her baby annoucements there. If you live near by stop in because the store is really charming. If not, I'm sure they would work with you by phone or email. In any case, if you are looking for a place to order stationery, invitations or just really nice paper defnitely go to Lion in the Sun. You will NOT be dissapointed. ...Lastly, Melinda has some really interesting event planning tips as well. She is a wealth of information.
