We thrive on collaboration

Such a unique experience

Working with Ashley and her team at Bay View Printing Co. was such a unique experience! We got all of our paper goods for our wedding from them and couldn’t have asked for more. In their bio, they say, “No one knows your relationship, your love, your vision for your big day, like you do. It’s our job to sit down, listen to your story and bring that story to life on paper.” That is *exactly* what they do...We got so many compliments from the first save the date to the final thank-you card and couldn’t have asked for a vendor to give us a more personalized stationery experience.

So much fun to work with

Danielle and Ashley were so much fun to work with and amazing at their jobs! They listened to what we liked and created beautiful designs based on our comments. In addition, it is truly a collaboration as they take any feedback and keep creating until you are extremely happy! Everything came out amazing and beautiful. We received a ton of compliments on our invitations and all of the paper goods on our wedding day. I am so happy we used Bay View Printing Co and would use them again in a heartbeat!

The design was perfect

Danielle and the Bay View Printing team were an absolute pleasure to work. They created a seamless experience for us and tweaked our design until it was perfect. They really asked good questions early on to get an idea for a design that came out flawlessly. Our guests have commented on how unique and cool our invitations were and we couldn't agree more. We cannot wait to frame ours and recommend them to everyone for their wedding or any paper needs.

Totally exceeded our expectations

OH MY LANTA! There are not enough words to describe how pleased my fiancé and I are with our wedding invitations by Bay View Printing Co. With my fiancé's graphic design background, it was important to find a wedding invitation vendor that met his standards...Bay View didn't just meet those standards, they exceeded them! Working with Danielle was an absolute dream. She listened to what we wanted and turned it into something we never thought was possible. Our guests have been gushing over the details of our invitations, one couple even said it was the most elegant invitation they have ever received.

Our absolute favorite vendor

We had the BEST experience working with Bay View Printing Co...With Bay View you get so much more than custom invitations. They were our absolute favorite vendor; professional, responsive, timely and their ability to create and print one-of-a kind, unique and personal designs is unparalleled. We would wedding plan a second time around just to work with Bay View again!

The highest quality product

Out of 28 vendors for my wedding, BVPC provided the absolute best customer experience and the highest quality product. The process was so much fun, the ladies were amazing to work with and the reviews from guests say it all. They're fantastic!! 10 out of 5 stars, I'd highly highly recommend.

Made our vision a reality

Ashley (owner) & her team at Bay View Printing Company were an absolute pleasure to work with. They met with us multiple times in person, and communicated via e-mail frequently. They took the vision which we could only think up in our minds and made it a reality! The save-the-dates, invites, and programs fit in with our theme perfectly. We cannot recommend Bay View Printing Co. enough!! Thank you!!

Learning is fun Take a class

The only thing that might be more fun than printing is teaching our craft to others. Educational and social? Yes. Beer and 100-year-old wood type? Yep. One-on-one instruction or a print party for everyone in your office?
You bet. Printing is for everyone, and we're here to show you how. Get in here and get your hands on history.
