I never write these things unless my experience was REALLY good or REALLY bad! Jeri, the owner, is the consummate professional and has an eye that is second to none! Our corporation gave Jeri a nearly impossible deadline for some event invitations, and she handled them like a champ. They were more gorgeous than we could have imagined. I relocated my office to Davis, and I still use Jeri whenever I need classy, elegant invitations, announcements, business cards, letterhead--basically anything printed. I couldn't believe anyone had a complaint, and then I saw they were brides who did the complaining...I was once a bride, and I remember being so stressed out, nothing could please me. Jeri is wonderful. I have NEVER felt like she thought she was "doing me a favor." She always has great ideas and thanks us for our business. The name really does say it all!

This is a store that sells not only a dazzling display of scrapbooking and rubber stamp items, but has a beautiful array of gift items and ready-made cards. It's a beautiful shop to explore and treasures will be found for sure. They hold classes as well. It's definitely worth the trip and you'll find yourself going back again and again. Parking is no problem.

If you are looking for inspiration, Only The Best is the place to go. I am always in need of a "craft fix" and I find that if I go into Only the Best and spend some time taking in all of the products and ideas, I come away with a new project that will satisfy my creative thirst. I love going in with an idea like "I'm looking to create an invitation for a party, I'm thinking Gatsby Theme, maybe spending about $4.00 per invite, and I want a classy design..." The owner, Jeri, always points me in the right direction. She is very, very knowledgeable. Only the Best is a one stop shop for me. My favorite sections include the drawers and drawers of die cuts, the whimsical ribbon selection, and the stock envelope (evelopes by the pack) section. I always pick my envelopes first and then build my invite around that size. I am not a stamp enthusiast, but this store has something for everyone. If you are looking to personalize a gift with special details, like a charm or custom card, Only the Best is a great place to shop.

Pros: Only the Best has unique items you can't get anywhere else.

Cons: With so much merchandise, I tend to go in often to browse. (I can't stay away)

Whether I'm looking for a beautiful card, unusual stationary, or the rubber stamps and supplies to make a one-of-a-kind gift, Only The Best is a sure fire winner. I've been a customer since the days they were located in Cupertino and I always find something wonderful when I shop there.

I am only writting this review after our second experience with OTB. Initially, I ordered my wedding invite through them. While trying to work out the best invite for my wedding I got the distinct impression that "they felt" they were doing me a favor. They seemed very "Put Off" throughout the entire process.

I decided to to let that experience go and try ordering a custom stamp through them for Christmas Cards. Today is Dec 20th. My Christmas Stamp to date has not arrive. Let's hope it gets here before Christmas.

In any case, while trying to order my stamp I overheard the owner saying that her business was not doing well and she needed more customers. I wonder....maybe better service would be the key.

Pros: Variety and location for local residents

Cons: Poor Customer Care

One of the few private rubber stamp stores in the area, but more. Beautiful inivitations and custom stationary, fun gifts, large Asian art paper, classes, other supplies and papers. Visit when I am in the area.

We ordered wedding invitations from Only the Best (OTB) this spring. Lets just start out by saying I believe their name is highly debateable.
We selected our invitations in part because of the short timeframe we had to work with. After submitting our order, we heard nothing from OTB and when we checked with them after the date we should have rec'd them, OTB called the makers and found out that they were on hold for over a week because we'd ordered a lined envelope - not possible with our invitations it turns out. OTB it seems would never have learned this if it weren't for our query. They sent in the order and didn't follow up. And they told us wrongly that we could get lined envelopes. Their attitude was it wasn't their fault. We saw it differently. We could have ordered the same inviations over the internet for less but decided to use OTB because they had a storefront. Allot of good that did us.

Try another shop.

Pros: it's a nice store with allot of samples

Cons: seems they care only about your money - not your experience

Really wide variety of stamps and really well stocked. They have a lot of scarpbooking supplies, they also offer quite a variety of classes to use the material they sell. especially - the deco clay. I recommend this class highly..the flowers you learn to make in this class are amazing, and will suprise ppl. Look so real, and are so light and easy to make! Call them for their class schedules.

One of the only rubber stamp stores left, this specialty shop combines rubber stamps, greeting cards, invitation services as well as tempting gifts and trinkets. I can?t stay away too long. The unique selection of handmade paper and high quality craft supplies are always tempting to buy.
