I have been shopping here for over ten years and have always had a positive experience. The staff is happy and helpful and the products are unique and priced well. They have a ton of great ideas for invitations and announcements. They have helped me design and create my own custom invites for baby and bridal showers. This is a great place to shop and a treasure in downtown Royal Oak!

I thought I found a new store in downtown Royal Oak but quickly realized one of my favorite haunts moved around the corner. The new and improved Write Impressions is even better and cooler than the Washington Square store. They still have an unbeatable selection of invitations for the do-it-yourself to print at home as well as those BIG binders filled with custom invitations for larger occasions. I love the staff at Write Impressions. I surprised when I read negative reviews because every time I come in they greet me and chat like I'm their neighbor ... always friendly, helpful and personal. Their greeting card selection is the best in Oakland County. They carry these quirky little card lines that I seldom find in other stores and my friends always ask me, "Where do you find these gems?". It's not just a paper store. They have the funniest stuff to give to friends and co-workers. Definitely worth a visit and best of all, unlike other stores in the area, they are open seven days a week ... including Sundays!!

Very rude and unprofessional service by both the manager and employees. I purchased very nice Christmas cards from Write Impressions and when I opened the package to address my cards I found that the cards were faulty. The paper insert fell out of all the cards making it impossible for any recipients to hang the entire card. When I attempted to return the cards, the cashier didn't seem to believe that the cards were faulty asked her superior whether or not they should allow me to return the cards as though I were invisible. They finally came to the conclusion that they would allow me to return the faulty merchandise. I suspect that the cashier didn't like the fact that one of her superiors wanted to accept my return as the cashier chose to ask another superior if I should be allowed to return it to which (in front of me) she told the cashier that she wouldn't have allowed me to return it. They finally came to the conclusion that they would return the money after I had to once again tell them that the merchadise was faulty. At that point I was so enrage at their very rude and unprofessional demeanor I promptly discarded the other merchandise I had planned to purchase that day. I have recommended Write Impressions for years. My friends have purchased pretty pricey wedding invitations per my recommendation. I am no longer recommending the shop. If they can't handle a $15.00 faulty piece of merchandise professionally, I would hate to think of what would happen if there were problems with my wedding invitations. Stay away.

Write Impressions has a great selection of different papers, and also a bunch of greeting cards, and different gift ideas. It's a fun store, I could spend hours just browsing. We purchased our paper for our DIY wedding invitations there. The staff could have been more helpful, but we did get beautiful paper.

I went with my sister and her fiance when they bought their wedding invitations from WI. There are many books of invitations to look through from extremely fancy to classic and simple. One of the staff members stayed with us until my sister and her fiance had chosen the perfect invitation for them. They arrived really quickly and they were very pleased with the quality of the invitations. When their son was born, they went back to pick out birth announcements from WI as well and were again very pleased with the service and products.

Write Impressions is a great little gem in Royal Oak. They have the most beautiful stationary and gifts. It is fun to just look around in their store. They also have more invitations for different occasions that I have ever seen!

I went to WI to look at wedding invitations for my recent wedding.

They had an OK selection of invitations, but I couldn't for the life of me get anyone to help me! When I had questions, NO ONE was there to answer them. The staff seemed much more focused on assisting the people in the store that they assumed would be spending the most money (they worked like they were on commission!).

They do have a cute selection of greeting cards and other neat little gifty things, but I will not be going back there because of the way I was treated.

Stopped in Write Impressions to check out wedding invitations. Even though I was going through books and asking questions, I could not get a staff member's attention long enough to get any service. There were a lot of customers in that day, and the staff seemed to focus only on the ones who were going to spend a lot of money.

I did end up spending a lot of money on wedding invitations, but not at Write Impressions.

In addition to the customer service problems, the store is not very "user friendly." By this, I mean that the layout is not conducive to a good shopping experience.

We ordered our wedding invitations from them and were highly impressed. They were very patient and helpful with all of the changes we made. The invites were a little pricey, but worth every penny.

I went to Write Impressions to find birth annoucements for my son that was just recently born. I was really impressed when I walked in the door because the place was stocked with stationary, invitaions and all kinds of great gift ideas. The lady working approached me very politely and asked if I needed some help. I told her what I was looking for and she showed me all that they had to offer. I was happy because I finally found a place with more than a couple annoucements. I picked what I wanted and she helped me choose what kind of font, color, and saying I wanted. Not only do they have annoucements, they have wedding invitations, birthday invitations, etc. The store also carries all kinds of gifts, for all kinds of occasions. The only thing that is a downfall for this store is there location! They are in Royal Oak so they don't have their own personal parking lot, you have to park somewhere else and then walk there. To me it was worth walking to because this place really has beautiful and unique things in it.

I used Write Impressions for my wedding invitations and was very pleased with this company... I first went to this store alone (minus the husband-to-be) to just browse and see if it was worth it to bring him back to pick out our invites.. well they had about 20 books full of bridal invitations so I started looking and a woman came over and sat with me to guide me through the books.. I ended up finding the perfect invitation that day.. we went back a week or so later and finalized everything and put our order in, the staff gave recommendations on wording, color, font and were just extremely helpful, I truly would have been lost without their help.. our invitations arrived so quickly, I was amazed and they were right and perfect..

Write Impressions not only does wedding invitations, they do all invitations, birth announcements, photo invitations, wedding programs, place cards, they have a huge selection of stationary and gifts.. you name it and they do it..

The one downfall I can think of is that you have to park and walk to the store.. it's located in Royal Oak and if your familiar with that city some businesses are a pain to get in and out of.. this one isn't too bad though..

The hours are very convenient and you do not need an appointment, which is a plus!

I could spend all day looking at the invitations in this store. They are cute, clever, and very special. You can do the printing yourself if you have the know-how, or pay them to do a custom order. I had my son's 1st birthday invitations printed here and they turned out perfectly. The service was super and it only took a couple of days to receive my order.
