“The best image”

Went to Cardwell & Ink with an idea and a few images that I liked bits and pieces from and she illustrated the best image of my friend for her baby shower invite. Could not have been more impressed with the result and the efficient delivery. Thanks Cardwell & Ink

“Outstanding Work”

I have ordered products from Cardwell& Ink on a number of occasions from their stellar photography services and custom illustrations to prints on tote bags and card sets. Cardwell & Ink have always produced work in a professional and timely manner with a product that has exceeded my expectations. I cannot recommend them more highly. From a very satisfied customer.

“It looked fantastic”

I ordered custom Save the Dates for an upcoming graduation party and requested a specific date for their completion. Priscilla was WONDERFUL to work with. Not only did she complete the Save the Dates days prior to the requested date, but she made sure to incorporate everything that I envisioned into the illustration. It looked fantastic, and all of the recipients complimented her work. She is very professional and a pleasure to work with, so much so that I also placed a custom order for my actual invitations from her as well. I 100% would recommend them again.

“AMAZING sums it up.”

There are so many great things to say about the purchase; The return time, the actual product and the seller but AMAZING sums it up! My daughter literally loved this seating chart at her bridal shower. It looked beautiful on the easel and was complimented by all the guests. I had to make changes and the seller accommodated me with the little amount of time I gave her. I would definitely purchase again from this shop. Thank you so much. You made my daughter’s day even more special.
