About:

Hi, I'm Sarah and I'm the owner of Sproullie Designs. Prior to starting my business, I had a background in art, design, and entrepreneurship but was not actively using those skills- I was working as a registered nurse. While planning my destination wedding in 2007, I discovered a need for quality, custom stationery and wedding invitations and set out to create my own. From the save-the-dates to the invitations, the menus, favors, programs and welcome letters, I created a look that reflected my unique and elegant personal style with a nod toward our tropical Mexican destination. People were astounded to learn that I hadn't hired a personal designer or wedding planner - I'd designed and created my wedding paper accessories myself. Within just a few short months after my wedding, word travelled fast, and dozens of people literally from around the globe had heard about my work from family, friends and a wedding forum I belonged to, and had commissioned me to create a custom stationery suite that would set their wedding apart as anything but average. In less than a year, my "side job" had turned into a full-time business for my husband and I. Now, nearly three years out, Sproullie Designs is busier than ever! I'm so thankful every day to have a creative outlet where I get to interact with brides from all over the world, helping them bring their wedding dreams to reality. My business began with a focus on destination weddings, but I also create traditional wedding invitations, logos, shower and party invitations, corporate announcements and cards, baby announcements, christmas cards and personal stationery, as well as custom photobook design. My previous customers are my best advertisement and greatest asset. I appreciate all the referrals over the years and the success my tireless customer service has brought me. It is my greatest joy to be able to discover your personal wedding style and transfer that to a tangible product. With something for every budget, each invitation is lovingly handcrafted in my studio by myself and my talented assistants with the utmost of care and pride. Whether you've seen a design on my website that has inspired you or you'd like to work with me to begin an original concept, I look forward to creating something fresh, modern and exciting for the most important day of your life! All the best,Sarah

    We were extremely happy with our boarding pass invitations. The communication was very prompts and we received our invitations much sooner than we originally expected.   Sarah was even nice enough to let me know where to buy the fonts that they used on our invitations, so that we could match the rest of the printed materials related to our wedding to them. Than was very nice.   Everyone that has received the invitations has taken time to comment on how beautiful they are.   We highly recommend using Sproullie Designs!” (read more)

    Pros: Super creative, unique invitations, good pricing, fast turnaround

    Cons: NONE!

    First of all, thanks to Sarah for introducing me to this forum! What a great resource! I found Sarah on Etsy and from our first communication, I knew she was the perfect match for my wedding invitations. I've worked in the wedding planning industry for 10 years and have dealt with many different vendors so I'd set the bar pretty high. Sarah and Christina were so helpful and professional. My invitations exceeded my wildest expectations and my guests are so impressed. My sister got married last year and wishes she'd found Sarah first   Thank you Sproullie Designs!” (read more)

    Pros: Everything! Beautiful quality, quick turnaround, professional communication and service.

    Cons: She's really busy - but I don't think that's a really a con, it just means she's really good! But plan ahead!

    Sarah and her Sproullie Designs team were so helpful during my ordering process. I'd had a bad experience with another Etsy vendor and everything they did completely set my mind at ease. Christina, the customer service rep was great at helping me choose a design and guided me through the process. Once we started into the design, Sarah was wonderful at communicating all changes needed and helped me stay within my budget. My guests RAVED about my saved the dates and I will be back for invitations soon! Go with Sproullie Designs, you won't be disappointed!” (read more)

    AI just want to the time out to say how I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE my postcard Save the dates from Sproullie Designs. Sarah's work is remarkable and her team is awesome. There was a high level of professionalism while working with Sarah and she was understanding and very helpful in the designing process. She returned emails promptly and was very patient in the process. When she noticed a slight issue in timing of submitting the first draft she acted quickly and responded in the appropriate manner. I highly recommend her services and I'm thankful that I decided to go with Sproullie's designs after all. I plan to to use her services for all my wedding stationary and any other future events. I was a little skeptical in going with online invitations but it was the best decision I made. Go with her she's the BEST and you won't be disappointed !!!Thanks Sarah ! ” (read more)

    Pros: Quality product, beautiful designs

    Cons: horrible communication, does not respond to emails, does not give contact phone number, does not stick to start dates, very stressful to deal with

    We initially began working with them to make our save the dates, ceremony invitations, receptions invitation, and place cards. We later added program fans and bridal shower invitations. Everything was to be custom designed except for the bridal shower invitations. Our save the dates and ceremony invitations turned out beautiful. Sarah and her team responded promptly to my emails and stuck to their start dates. We also had a great experience with our bridal shower invitations. However, after that the problems started. Our next big project was the reception invitations. Our start date came and went without any emails from Sarah or her team. I emailed them several times asking the status of our order since I had not even received a first draft and our final deadline was fast approaching. Finally, almost 3 weeks after the start date, we received a draft. Ultimately, our reception invites turned out great regardless of the added stress.   Because of that, we decided to continue to work with sproullie designs for our program fans and place cards (even though I was nervous at this point, but I wanted all of my paper items to match). Our wedding was on August 5th, 2012. Once again...” (read more)

    AWe found Sarah on Etsy and it was truly a godsend as we were slightly behind schedule with getting our Save the Dates out for our wedding in Playa Del Carmen. Although she does custom designs we were able to find what we needed from her gallery of work. Now that we are back on schedule we are looking forward to creating our invitations with her. ” (read more)

Everyone was very impressed with the quality and design and the colors match perfectly. Sarah was very quick to respond to my questions and knew exactly what I wanted!

    Pros: Sarah, quality, color, professionalism, unique

    Cons: Not a single thing.

    I found Sproullie on ETSY, and it was the best discovery of my entire wedding planning thus far!!!! I had the passport invitations made for my destination wedding in May to the Bahamas. Sproullie were VERY thorough about what I was looking for, wanted, and imagined my invitations to be. Once I began working with Sarah, the process was seamless. Sarah worked with me through my indecisiveness, pickiness, grammar checks - and rechecks. Sarah was more than accommodating of any and all changes that I wanted to make, and helped me out with wording that I was stuck on. She even did an amazing job photo shopping the picture that I wanted to use (my fiance had a big 'ol thumbs up in the picture - she was able to take it out, cant even tell!!!!!). As the RSVP's have been trickling in we have received many, many, compliments on the invitations, and their uniqueness. We are beyond happy - it set the tone that we wanted for the wedding : unique, fun, elegant, yet not overly so. Perfect for any destination wedding. The delivery was quick. The whole process was quite painless. I cant say it in any other way - I'M IN LOVE WITH MY INVITATIONS!!!! I would HIGHLY recommend Sarah, and Sproull...” (read more)

    Pros: Creative, Friendly, Lots of Communication, Exactly what I wanted!!

    Cons: None

    I cannot say enough good things about Sproullie Designs. I found Sarah on Etsy and Sarah along with her team created my Save the Date postcards that were exactly what I wanted for my destination wedding. They turned out amazing and I've received so many compliments on them. So, I turned to Sproullie Designs again when it came time to design our wedding invitations. They got exactly what I was looking for and created the perfect design. I fell in love with them instantly. Sproullie Designs is incredibly easy to work with, responds quickly, and will work with you to create exactly what you are looking for. I'm extremely pleased and I would highly recommend Sproullie Designs. Sarah and her team are AMAZING!!!” (read more)

    Pros: Creative, Excellent Craftsmanship

    We did our Save the Dates (postcards) and wedding invitations (Passports) with Sproullie Designs and both turned out better than we ever could have expected. The response from friends and family has just been overwhelmingly positive, with messages like "CUTEST invitations ever!" and "The most creative and unique invitations I have ever seen!" Sarah, the owner was a joy to work with and was the perfect blend of patience (had numerous updates throughout the project) and creativity. I highly highly recommend Sproullie Designs for any special events, but especially for the perfect invitation to get your guests excited for a destination wedding.” (read more)

    Pros: Responsiveness

    My fiance and I were torn on what to do for the "perfect" wedding invites for our destination wedding in Saint Lucia.  We thought we wanted gorgeous letterpressing but we also wanted something that was specfic to a happy, lively, beachy destination and not as formal as letterpressed invites can be.  Most of all, we wanted something that our guests would really love and possibly hold onto as a keepsake.   We discovered Sproullie on etsy.com and never looked back.   Sarah & her team were not only extremely responsive, as we were on a very tight timeline, but had a cheery personality throughout the whole design process (which lasted only about 3 days!), and made us feel like their number one customer.  To check all of these boxes for any busines is an accomplishment.  We hope to work with Sproullie again well into the future for our event needs.    Bravo to Sproullie for being such a good example of how to run a customer-centric business with a high level of personal touch.” (read more)

    Sarah was a pleasure to work with. I am so happy that I chose her to make my STD postcards. I contacted Sarah because I could not find the listing for the postcards I wanted when I was finally ready to purchase. She got back to my so quickly by e-mail within I believe twenty minutes. Once I purchased the actually $20.00 design fee she was great about getting me a rough draft. The first draft was perfect, everything I could of ever imagined for my STD's for our wedding. Once I made my purchase for 100 postcards I received them within 4 days!!! The colors of my save the dates are so beautiful I can not even put it into words. The shimmer of the paper is gorgeous. If you are looking for somebody to do your stationary suite for your wedding Sarah is a GREAT choice!!   ” (read more)

    Pros: creative, unique, prefessional, prompt, understanding

    Cons: NONE

    Pure perfection!!!! The invitations Sarah created for my upcoming June wedding are absolutely amazing! She was able to design a look that complimented our wedding ideas in every way! I was searching for about 8 months to find someone that would be able to capture the vision in my head and put it on paper with no luck...that was until I stumbled on Sarah's etsy web page! Sarah is very professional, understanding, prompt, and creative. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for unique invitations with a personal touch!!! Words can really not express how happy I am with the work Sarah has done on our boarding pass wedding weekend invitations; they really are perfect!!! Thank you so much Sarah for everything!!!” (read more)

    Pros: dynamic, patient, artistic, reasonable

    Cons: none

    Let me start off by saying that prior to contacting anyone for prices etc. I did as much research as I could and read any reviews that I could find.  I find that this helps me to know what to expect albeit it good or bad.  So I already knew that response wasn't going to be super speed, however; it wasn't slow either.  Sarah had at least a 3-5 day turnaround time.  And for me this was fine as I plan ahead.   So after reading, viewing and contacting Sarah from Sproullie Designs, my heart was settled.  FI trust me as he know I research until I can't find anything else ;-)  With that said, I contacted Sarah back in Sept or Oct 10' to begin our project in Jan.  Sarah sent 3 different designs and of the 3 we liked 2 and choose from there. I couldn't believe that she nailed our vision off of filling out a form but she is AMAZING to say the least.  FI rarely gets excited about much but these brought a tear to his eyes.  Let's say this is so surreal for the both of us.    Today we received 150 Boarding Pass STDs with addressed envelopes and our return address on them.  Receiving this well packaged item today was the best t...” (read more)

    I absolutely love my boarding pass invites.  I just sent them out & have already received a lot of compliments on them.  The whole process took a little longer than I expected though.  I know the holidays are a busy time of year, but it would take on average 5 days to get a reply email.  I would definitely use Sproullie Designs again but next time I would start the process sooner. ” (read more)

    I fell in love with Sarah's work instantly when I saw it on Etsy.  Her aesthetic matched my visions for stationary perfectly!  I ordered Save the Date postcards from Sarah and they turned out not only beautifully, but were reasonably priced as well!  I also ordered boarding pass invites from Sarah.  She was very attentive to all of my requests and was SO easy to work with.  My invites just arrived and are even more beautiful than they were on the computer screen.  I would recommend Sarah to any bride! ” (read more)
