Michelle's Memos {Vendor Love}

Today we're letting you in on one of our little secrets. We've been working with Michelle Alberg at Michelle's Memos for over 15 years and she is absolutely one of our "ace-in-the-hole" vendors.

Michelle has been in the invitation business for over 25 years and she really knows her stuff. Because she's been working with paper products for so long, she truly knows them inside and out. She knows which companies to use for certain requests, which companies have the fastest turn-around, and which are easiest to customize.  She also knows how to cut costs where no one would ever notice so she can maintain the "look" but keep the price low. On top of all this, she discounts her prices off retail (on lines she legally can)!

But the reason we truly love Michelle is that she is so detail-oriented and thorough. Nothing falls through the cracks and she is an amazing proofer. She has caught so many tiny glitches for our clients over the years!

Michelle carries over 50 stationery lines including William Arthur, Smock, Bella Figura, Designers Fine Press and C'est Papier.  You can reach her at or 301-983-4987. She is by appointment only and books up fast but don't even think of trying to steal our time slots!
