Client Inspiration & Praise
My fiancé and I could not of asked for a more fun, artistic, kind, caring, energetic, positive person to design our invitations. Molly is amazing! She went above and beyond to spend time with us, get to know us and make our invites just THAT special. I think the quote used on the finished product was “they are so us.” These invites aren’t just what you order from a book they are designed to resemble your special day as she hand draws every detail. We were truly blown away. Molly is organized and quickly responds to all questions and her positive energy makes You even more excited about your big day! Beyond impressed she’s simply the best!!!

Molly was an absolute joy to work with all the way down to her emails with so much enthusiasm and passion - my fiance and I joked about how her emails made even the worst days brighter. One of the biggest things I learned in the wedding planning process is that there are some vendors that do their job solely for the money and there are some that it is clear as day they have such a deep passion for what they do and care for their clients. It is evident in Molly's work that she is the latter - the time and effort that she puts into making your invitations so perfectly unique to you is amazing. I appreciated her patience as we made decisions & the stress she took out of wedding planning. She truly makes it fun! Thank you Molly for rolling out the red carpet for our wedding guests via invitation!!

At first we weren’t sure if we were going to do a stock design wedding invitation or a custom invitation and we are so happy we picked Molly to help us make everything so special. She was professional, very responsive and reliable, creative and fun to work with. She took a lot of time to customize the artwork and sketches to help make our invite personal. We are so happy with the final product. We would not hesitate to use her again and we give our full endorsement to use her for your designing needs!!
- Ben & Maria, 10-3-19
Molly is masterfully skilled not just in her art but in the art of mixing personable and professional. She is the ultimate support with whatever you need and guides you with helpful suggestions and flexibility to make sure your invitations, decorations, or place cards are exactly what you picture. She nails any personal details you want to customize your dream day, and she would be the first person I recommend for any of your wedding needs.

Molly from Maxes Designs was amazing to work with! I sent her a generic invitation I found on a website and she really made it our own! We received so many compliments from guests :) Molly also made the programs for our wedding ceremony, gift tags and out of towner gift tags for our hotel gifts. She was always very punctual, sending back new design ideas and changes within a day. I loved that she offered us advice on what she thought would look best - she is the professional after all! Not to mention she did all of this for us in crunch time and was so willing to help us crank everything out! She's amazing and HIGHLY recommended!

You MUST order your printed materials from MAXE DESIGNS! This is the second time we used MAXE for invitations, programs and more and we could not be more pleased with their beautiful one-of-a-kind artwork, incredible service and reasonable prices. Our two daughters, married 8 months apart, have different tastes and MAXE nailed it for both. The invitations do not resemble each other, yet they are both beautiful and suit each bride perfectly. MAXE service is not to be believed and I am NOT exaggerating. It is customer service at its finest. They make this part of wedding planning easy. Last, and no less important, is the value for the money. You will spend less and get much more with MAXE. Choose MAXE and expect to be delighted!
- Jan, Mother of the Bride (Carie)
Molly is such a great woman to work with. So far she has done our wedding invites and our rehearsal invites and we plan on doing a few more items with her prior to the wedding day! Our wedding invites were absolutely gorgeous. She made my vision even better than I thought was possible. Everyone said that our invite was the best wedding invite they have ever seen. She is reasonably priced even for the more intense invite requests (we did an invite with a pocket, main invite, and three inserts). She was very responsive and helped mix and match ideas to make it exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend using Maxe Designs for any needs you may have.
- Zoe & Anthony, 7-13-19
Let us start off with saying Molly is the best! You will come across a lot of wedding vendors throughout your planning process that treat you as just another couple getting married – not Molly. Molly genuinely wants to know and understand who she is working with and takes extreme great pride in her work and making the experience perfect. We got in contact with Molly for custom wedding invitations. When we saw other invitations, nothing was unique to our special wedding in Chicago and we felt on several occasions forced to settle with a certain type of wedding invite. Molly worked through every detail with us from sharing inspirational photos, to sharing SEVERAL different custom art pieces, font types, working through our final designs and picking out the perfect paper, envelope, cover wrap, and final touches. We had a tight deadline to ensure guests has enough time to send back RSVPs and Molly absolutely delivered. The number of compliments received after our invitations went out have been beyond what we could have envisioned. With all the stress that wedding planning creates, I can tell you Molly made this process effortless and we feel extremely grateful for coming across her and trusting her with the perfect wedding invitations. This was by far the best of our wedding planning activities. If you want someone that will have the same level of passion and care you have for making your special day a priority, Molly is hands down the best. While we don’t plan on getting married again :) , we plan on connecting with Molly again on custom designs for future events.
- Meghan & Stephen, 7-20-19
Molly did our wedding invitations, guest book, and escort cards. She made the very complicated process of invitations easy and handled all of my concerns and questions. Molly has an artistic touch that is a gift. People are still talking about how beautiful our invitations are after our wedding! I would recommend molly to anyone!!
- Julie & Mike, 5-4-19
Molly has been an absolute pleasure to work with! She knew exactly what we wanted even though I felt like my inspiration was very vague, she took that and made it into something perfect. And we’ve gotten tons of compliments from our guests on our invitation and save the dates!!
- Abby & Dalton, 5-25-19
Molly was amazing!!!! I was initially really overwhelmed with wedding planning, and Molly not only helped turn that around, but she made it fun! Her prices were very reasonable and the designs for our invitations came out absolutely perfect and personal. She made the process easy and stress free. She even gave us a beautiful keepsake box to keep wedding memorabilia with our designs on the cover and wrote us lovely well wishes. I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Molly!!!
- Candice & John, 6-29-18
Molly was amazing to work with! She creates custom, unique designs that contain such special elements about the couple. She took our ideas and ran with them! The day our invites were delivered, we received so many messages about how amazing they were. Even beyond the creation of the invites, Molly handles addressing, stamping and sending them out. It was PAIN FREE (Much needed at this point in wedding planning). She was very patient with my all over the place ideas! Molly also is working on so much more than just invites! She is completing a unique art-piece that we will use for our guestbook. I could not recommend her more! If you are looking for custom, affordable and easy paper products for your event, Molly is the go-to!
- Amy & Mark, 6-29-18
Molly is AMAZING! She took our vision and created the most beautiful invitations, that were better than what we could've dreamed! Working with her was so fun and she made everything so seamless, from start to finish. She is super talented and I am so happy with how everything turned out!
- Molly & Steve, 5-18-19
Highly recommended. High quality paper with no frays/tears on the edges. Highly personalized experience, Molly will walk you through the whole process to ensure the best. I will continue to use Maxe Designs LLC for the remaining stationery.
- Erin & Phillip, 3-1-19
Molly has been AMAZING to work with. She is on point with your wants and desires. She gives you plenty of fonts, colors, thought and ideas to choose from. She provides suggestions when needed. Her prompt response to all my emails, and I mean some where like 15 a day were answered in a timely manner. I look forward to working with Molly again soon.
- Paula & Jon, 12-28-18
Molly (Maxe Designs) is the absolute best!! She is not only creative and helpful, but the nicest person to work with. We had to do a lot of back and forth via email since I live in LA. Molly had done the designs and invitations for my sister's wedding and I loved the results. After speaking with her on the phone and hearing the care and effort she puts into everything she does, it was clear we needed to hire her. After learning more about our story, hearing about our vision for the wedding, and understanding the thematic elements we wanted included, she took it and ran. The results were a set of designs we absolutely loved, each one better than the next. Then she went on to handle all of the printing, envelope stuffing, addressing, stamping, and mailing, making our part about as easy as it gets. We would highly recommend Molly for any of your wedding design or invitation needs. She is so original and works hard to make sure everything is perfect, no matter the time or effort involved. If you're looking for the perfect person to design your ideal invitation set and make the process seamless, look no further than Maxe Designs. Thanks Molly for everything!
- Melissa & Evan, 12-15-18
We had a great experience with Maxe Designs. We worked with Molly who is prompt, courteous and has great follow through skills. She listened to our ideas and turned them into a beautiful design. We ended up with a one of a kind invitation suite - and we love it. Invitations are out and we are receiving lots of compliments on them. We highly recommend Maxe!
- Jan, Mother of the Bride (Liza)
Loved working with Molly and will definitely have her design future invitations! “Thank you Molly for all your hard work and creativity! Loved working with you!”
- Michelle, Mother of the Bride (Alyssa), 10-20-18
IDK where to start, Molly has made this whole experience an amazing one, she's taken all the stress out of finding invitations and designing them. She is a very professional person, prompt, informative and all over outstanding person, she comes highly recommended!!! My fiance and I are so luck to have found her, thank you, Molly for all of your hard work and dedication, your work is impeccable, I will be back!
- Alexandria & Eric, 9-30-18
Working with Molly is a dream! She makes you feel so special and works with you every step of the way to create your perfect masterpiece for your big day! She is so talented and professional. I would recommend her services to anyone needing something custom and spectacular for any event. I look forward to working with her in the future for all my events and creations!!!
- Ashley & Brian, 9-22-18
We are so grateful and continue to receive compliments on how thoughtful and beautiful our wedding invitations look. Molly made the process of design, decision making and delivery joyful and effortless. I know that moving forward she is our exclusive designer for any happy occasions and celebrations. Thank you Molly!
- Kate & Marcelo, 9-20-18
Molly and Maxe Designs was one of the best wedding planning experiences my husband and I had during our wedding planning process! Right from the start, we were impressed with Molly's positive energy, professionalism and creativity. Molly was always responsive, and included us in every part of the design process. Each design she makes is one-of-a-kind, and our final product was absolutely beautiful and special to my husband and I. We received many compliments from our wedding gifts on the invitation, and designing it with Molly is something we will always remember. I highly recommend Molly and Maxe designs for your wedding!!
- Anna & Adam, 6-23-18
Molly is so great to work with- my wedding invitations came out absolutely beautiful and I received many compliments on them. Molly designs everything from scratch so whatever you envision, she’ll create. I had an invitation set that required lots of information and she did a great job adding artwork so the text was balanced and not overwhelming and also created a perfect matching insert with more details guests needed. The absolute best part about Molly is that she takes care of all of the stuffing and mailing inserts herself so it’s one less thing for a bride to do!
- Ellen , 8-10-18
Molly from Maxe Designs is absolutely AMAZING. She made this process extremely easy and painless for us. Molly took ALL the stress of invitations, programs, escorts, and so much more away from us. She went so far above and beyond. I would recommend her to everyone!!! THANK YOU MOLLY!!
- Jordan & Justin, 7-14-18
Molly was amazing! She created beautiful designs for us when we had no idea what we wanted. She is so kind and easy to work with - she even took our invitations to the post office for us. I can't recommend Molly enough!!!
- Anna & Andrew, 6-16-18
I can't rave enough about working with Molly on my wedding invitations. She custom designed our invitations and they were perfect. Romantic, Soft, Elegant was what I wanted and it's what I got! From the very first intake session to the back and forth on design and font favorites-everything was easy and pleasant. It was also really helpful to come into Molly's studio and make the final selection of paper and see how differently paper styles looked in the light. I would highly recommend Molly to anyone looking for custom wedding invites and more!
- Allison & Mark, 9-2-18
We are currently working with Molly at Maxe Designs and she is INCREDIBLE!! From the start, she has been so warm and friendly and such a pleasure to work with. She got to know us on a personal level and learned what our style was so that our invitations could be tailored to us as a couple. As a result, our invitations came out so beautiful. She is so talented and an amazing artist. We have received a TON of compliments on our invitations and we can't wait to continue working with her on our day-of-designs! I HIGHLY recommend Molly for your wedding!
- Roxy & Chris, 7-14-18
I STRONGLY recommend Molly to any and all brides!! If you are looking for a unique invitation that is beautifully designed by a true artist- then Molly is who you must hire!! She draws all of her artwork by hand. If there is a design you know you want to incorporate into your invitations- look no further than Molly! If you want a basic run of the mill invitation- this is not it! Her designs are unique and so beautiful. Aside from her designs, she is one the kindest people I’ve ever met. She is AMAZING at communication and responds to your emails or texts or calls immediately. She also sticks to your timelines very closely which is so important! The bottom line is this: if you want a talented artist who will draw, design, put together, and even mail your invitations for you- and want someone who is an excellent value- then hire Molly RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!
- Anna & Barry. 7-21-18
Where do I begin…Molly is wonderful! Not only is she fantastic to work with, her artwork is so authentic, beautiful and personalized to each customer. I am an extremely particular person when it comes down to details and she brought all my ideas to life, if not better than I imagined! She took the time to supply me with multiple options to choose from between formatting, colors, paper, you name it! She is extremely flexible and so responsive. Molly really gets to know you as a couple and what your ultimate vision/design is for your entire wedding in order to create stationary that will initially introduce all your guests to the overall feel of your day! Our guests cannot stop raving about our invitations. We loved everything so much we are continuing the design process with her for programs, place cards and menus. I cannot recommend her enough. Why have conventional stationary when you can have something so personal and customized – choose Maxe Designs, you won’t regret it!
- Heather & Jon, 5-19-18
Molly was our absolute favorite vendor to work with! She had this enthusiasm that you can hear from the beginning of the phone consultation, and carried it throughout the entire process! You can tell she loves what she does. Everything is made just for you, based on your specifications, and will never be used again for another couple. When we first met with her to come up with designs, she showed us her previous work. She had a story to tell about every single one, which was amazing to see!
- Cesar & Beverly, 5-19-18
I would highly recommend Molly! At first, we had no idea what kind of invitations or save the dates we wanted. Molly had books of designs and a lot of ideas. She helped us create the perfect invitations for us. Since she creates her own designs, we were really able to personalize our invitations. She made the design process fun and easy! Our guests were also very impressed with her work. Molly is a true professional. She is organized, responds quickly and creates a great product every time. She was truly wonderful to work with!
- Kimberly, 4-20-18
My fiance and I were looking for designs that were a bit out of the ordinary. We found Molly and I think we were destined to work together!
Our wedding plans were complicated as we were looking for several variations of invitations for each grouping of guest. From the start Molly was open, knowledgeable, encouraging, calm and mot importantly FUN!!
The level of service Molly provided was EXCEPTIONAL and was a full service from design to posting !! Guests have been receiving the invitations and are so so so surprised with the end product - guests have been messaging me saying that they are the funnest and most remember-able invites they have ever received.
Molly was coming up with awesome ideas throughout the process and really too time to think abut our style and what would work. I cant wait to continue on working on other items for the wedding!!! Thank you Molly !!!!

Molly is amazing at what she does!! She sets aside time to specifically make the invites tailored to you! She keeps you updated along the whole process. Molly also lets you change whatever you would like, and completes it fast! Molly is so good at what she does it's so hard to chose what you like more! There is not a bad design or idea she has AT ALL!! I absolutely love my ONE OF A KIND invites!!! I would HIGHLY recommend!!!!
- Stephanie & Joel, 11-25-17
Molly is great! She is professional, energetic, sweet, and hard working. She made our wedding designs come alive! We are happy with her work! She went above and beyond our expectations. She works around your schedule. I would highly recommend her to design your wedding invitations! Our guests have all been impressed by the wedding invitations! :)
- Christina & Luis, 10-17-17
We had the best experience working with Molly with our bridal shower, wedding invitations and day of wedding designs! If you are in search of one-of-a-kind, totally you, gorgeous designs look no forward! Molly truly listens to your visions and helps bring your wedding dreams to life. We received endless compliments on our invitations. People were going out of their way to comment on how romantic, beautiful, and special our invitations were. Molly removed the stress out of sending out the most important mail of your life. After meeting with her we took a huge breath of relief! They will do everything for you even stamp, and mail the invites out! It was such a relief that we could count on Molly to take care of this very special and tedious task for us. We recommend her to anyone and can't wait to work with her in the future!
- Melissa & Denis, 10-7-17
I truly cannot recommend Molly and Maxe Designs LLC enough. Molly is an absolute joy to work with, from the start of the design process to the end - she was SO responsive (like, 24 hour response time to my millions of emails), she is SO kind and SO thoughtful, she is very detailed in making sure everything was EXACTLY what we wanted. I had a dream of exactly how I wanted our designs to look - I wanted them to be Chicago themed, with burgundy and silver touches and blush pink, and OH MY did she make my dreams come true!!!! Molly went above and beyond and even sketched the skyline for our invites and other stationary. We wanted to add some cocktail signs last minute because we forgot about them and she was able to produce them in 48 hours and they were AMAZING!!! Not only were the designs better than I could have ever dreamed of - she brought ALL OF THE STATIONARY TO MY WORK!!!! She knew I was busy with the planning and she actually hand delivered the items to me. She was so helpful, she even mailed the invitations for us. Molly is truly amazing at what she does, and a true gem in this world, and we feel beyond fortunate to have had her as one of our vendors. CHOOSE MOLLY AS YOUR STATIONARY DESIGNER!!!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!
- Brooke & Jake, 7-29-17
Designing, printing, shipping, and organizing my day of paper products seemed like a daunting task to me prior to finding Molly. My husband and I wanted to find a design that helped tell everyone about "us." Molly is truly a gem. Immediately upon meeting her, she was professional and a genuine friendly person. My husband and I had a few ideas for our wedding invitations. She was able to immediately understand our ideas and was able to explain the process of designing. She is a true artist; however, you are part of the process every step of the way! We designed our wedding invitation suites, place cards, menus, table numbers, and programs with Molly. Your design process is not complete until you are 100% satisfied with the final outcome. We were able to design a cohesive look to our invitations suites, place cards, and table numbers at a very reasonable cost. Our programs displayed a one of a kind sketch of our church by Molly! Everything was absolutely beautiful. I even created with short notice a small gift for my husband as a surprise at the head table. Molly's passion comes forward in every step of the process, and it is apparent she views every couple's day as important and unique. Like everyone says, your wedding day goes by in a blink of an eye. I feel fortunate to have had such an amazing design experience with Molly as well as beautiful paper products to look at that truly reflect "us" as a couple.
- Megan & Tom, 7-8-17
Molly was absolutely PHENOMENAL!! I went to Molly with an idea of a wedding program made look like a concert program, and she made all my jumbled ideas an amazing reality. From making layout suggestions, to suggesting types of paper that would look good, and tie in with my wedding colors, she helped every step of the way. Molly was super responsive via email, and any time I requested a change, she had the updated proof over to me in no time at all. Not to mention, she is one of the nicest women I have had the pleasure of working with. I would recommend Molly to anyone in a heartbeat.
- Maddie & David, 7-27-17
Molly from Max Designs was wonderful to work with during preparation for my wedding. She did the art work for my guestbook, cake signs, table numbers, table seating chart, and ceremony programs. When I had several guests RSVP the day before the wedding, she overnighted me a seating arrangement change for my seating chart. I am so impressed by her professionalism and positive attitude, especially during such a stressful time approaching the wedding. I will recommend her to all of my friends and family who get married. I will even use her for other events in the future (ex: baby shower invitations). In addition, Molly is a great artist. My theme for the wedding was cranes and my two dogs, she hand drew pictures and painted them. The artwork looked outstanding and made my wedding very personal that resembled me and my husband. Thanks Molly!
- Sara & Leo, 7-1-17
Beautiful, custom, one of a kind wedding invitations!!!! Molly was great to work with. Very responsive and brought my vision for my wedding invitations to life. I will use Molly to design all future invitations.
I initially wanted to make my own invitation through minted but quickly realize there's more to it than just picking a design and entering our wedding information. I tried calling and chatting online with a customer service but didn't get confident of what I was doing. I started looking for another option. I emailed Molly early in the morning and before noon, I was already talking to her about my visions, ideas, options, you name it! By the end of the call I was confident I came to right place and I am in good hands. The exceptional services continued on throughout the process. . The invites arrived on time, assembled and ready for mailing. Best of all, the invitation is simply fabulous. Hire Molly! You will love working with her. She is so positive and fun to work with. Her options and ideas seems endless. She will be the best decision you will make throughout the wedding process.
- Sara, 7-1-17
I love Molly!! She was the first person I hired in my wedding planning process. I knew from the very first conversation she was it for me. We clicked so well and she understood my vision for my designs. I didn't once have to ask her to change or edit a drawing. Her drawings were one of a kind and amazing. We created a wonderful friendship and will be working with her in the future! Highly highly recommend!!!
- Taylor & Carlos, 5-21-17
I cannot say enough great things about Molly of Maxe Designs. I have had a phenomenal experience working with her. She is incredibly professional, dedicated, talented, and just fun to design with! She takes every detail seriously and helped me get things exactly how I wanted them. Further, she is extremely talented and has a great eye. She gave me so many beautiful options to chose from and then made all the little tweaks I desired as we went along. Everything came out GORGEOUS! She even went above and beyond to mail out everything for me per my request. Designing with Molly has been one of my favorite parts of wedding planning! She's a special person, artist, and now friend. You will love working with her.
- Amanda & Alex, 5-27-17
When you start the search of wedding invitations, you have two options - to do something generic from a stationary store or online, or to hire a designer and spend more on your invitations than on your entire wedding. Molly is neither of those things - she is an artist! After reading Molly's reviews, I had to contact her, and when I did I got the sweetest, friendliest email back. We met with her in person to start going over some ideas, I did not know what I wanted but I knew what I didn't want and she was very receptive to that. She showed us a book of past invitations and it really seemed like her talent was endless! The best thing about Molly is she will work with you until it's exactly what you want, she doesn't put any restrictions on things, or tell you something can't be done. She will send you mock-ups and examples until it's perfect. We ended up with a 100% unique invitation that no one will ever have, and we feel that what we paid was incredibly reasonable. You can tells he does this because she loves it, in her office there is a chalk board of all the names of her current couples. Molly also understands that weddings are a living thing, and sometimes you have months or sometimes you have weeks to get these out the door and she is very easy to work with in terms of when your invites go to print or when you will receive them. Most of her services are a la carte, and she gives you many options so you never feel like you are choosing a package that may not fit your needs. She is a wonderful person, very easy to talk to, to be around and was simply a joy to work with! My only regret is that my wedding is over and I don't get to continue designing with Molly!
- Sofia & Andrew, 9-30-16
Molly did a wonderful job creating a completely custom wedding invitation for us!!! She absolutely brought our vision to life! I 100% recommend her. Our guests gave us so many complements on how original our invitations looked, and that's because they were original. Molly is very enthusiastic and wants you to be happy. When I first went to Molly's studio, she showed us designs she had created for other couples, I was a little concerned because I didn't particularly like any of them, but the reason for that as it turns out, is because Molly's sole focus is on making an invite that the bride and groom like, not what she likes. So what she was showing us were other couples' visions and styles. There's no possible way that I could have come up with these invites on my own. And for a completely custom design, she was actually very reasonably priced. I did my research before signing a contract with her and I was getting quotes that were double and triple of what she charged us. She also had all of the addresses printed onto the envelopes for us, put on the stamps, and mailed them out. The entire process from initial phone call to invites in the mail took awhile, but let me tell you it was so worth it. Molly is awesome and worth the money, you won't be disappointed!!!
- Paige & Garrick, 11-26-16
I am so thankful to have crossed paths with Molly at a bridal show and that she agreed to design out wedding invites! Working with Molly was an absolute dream and out finished product was more perfect than we ever could have imagined. I looked forward to each meeting with Molly as her fun, positive energy is contagious! she seemed to instantly know 'our style' (after our brief general description of what we kind of had in mind) and gave us so many perfect, original options to choose from. Her creativity and talent shines through each piece she designs. We felt so special knowing our wedding invites would be a completely original design! We had several guests compliment the design and originality of our invites. Whenever I learn of an engagement among my family or friends, I always suggest Molly as I'd love for all of my loved ones to experience what a joy it is to work with her and have extraordinary invites! Thanks, Molly, for being you and for sharing your talent with the wedding world!
I absolutely loved working with Molly!!! She is such a joy! She provides so much more than invitations! I was worried with her being an artist I would t take full advantage of her talents as I wanted a more simplistic design, but she completely captured my style and essence and I couldn't be happier!!!!! She went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed and wanted and was so fun and easy to work with. She took all of the stress out of the process. She is amazing! If you need invitations, she is your gal! I am so impressed and I am in love with my invitations!!!
- Anne & Hank, 10-22-16
Molly is such an amazing artist full of talent. She is so friendly and easy going to work with. She always kept us updated on everything with regards to our save the dates and wedding invitations. She also went that extra mile to ensure we had all our details correct, she created a variety of designs and styles so we had a number of artworks, colors, wraps, and even font styles and paper to choose for our save the dates and designs. We highly recommend her to any couple looking for amazing invitations and more who want something unique, creative, artsy, and different.
- Chastity & Alex, 10-29-16
MOLLY IS AMAZING!!!!!! She truly loves what she does! She is such a talented artist and made this part of our wedding planning the least stressful. Molly worked with us to design the most unique and beautiful invitations, incorporating every request we asked from her and even offering us ideas of her own. She is so genuine and truly made us feel so special throughout the entire process. If I had to do it all over again I would continue to choose Molly Maxe Designs again and again!
Maxe Designs was one of the best choices that I made during my wedding planning! Molly was so helpful, kind, and accommodating. Her personalization of our invitations made our wedding so much more "us". I got so many wonderful comments when my guests received their invites about how beautiful they were and how much they reflected my fiance and I's personality. The quality of her work is incredible and I value her input and work so much. The end product was even more than I ever could have hoped for. Thank you!!!
- Rose & Corey, 9-17-16
Working with Molly of Maxe Designs has been by far one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. For us, a wedding invitation wasn’t just a piece of paper – it was a tool to introduce the style of our wedding and our relationship to our guests, and to ignite excitement of those we were inviting to participate in our special day. Molly met with us to learn more about our individual personalities, our wedding, and our visions for our invitation. She then provided us with a wide selection of artwork that she created based on our initial meeting, and worked closely with us to make any revisions we asked for. Throughout the entire process she was responsive, worked closely with us to ensure we were comfortable with all decisions and brought great ideas to the table. Molly is energetic, welcoming, and most importantly, an incredibly talented artist! It has been a pleasure working with her, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a unique and artistic invitation. We LOVE how our invitations turned out, and are confident that our guests will love them also!
- Emily & Joe, 10-9-16
Molly was amazing and very patient! She helped us create the invitations of our dreams! we assumed getting invites would be stressful, but she makes it so much fun! I truly recommend her!
The quality, the price, the response time were all A++ Will do business with her again!
- Tiffany & Stephen, 9-23-16
I remember a couple months ago I was looking for beautiful invitations and reading reviews as well & was impressed with the artwork she does. I met personally with Molly at her studio and she is such an inviting and full of energy individual - never a dull moment! First meeting included just getting to know the client/couple and what we would love to incorporate into the wedding invitations, the style, the artwork etc. Molly is one of a kind and she paints/draws an artwork that will be incorporated so nothing is ever the same. Its definitely YOUR OWN design which I loved. Soon after the first meeting she started working on designs, wordings, formats where you can choose from and if you were stuck on 2 or 3 designs - she will play with those designs until they are to your liking :) The next meeting with her she had printed out the designs on different papers and had everything ready for me to choose from where I was able to feel and see how everything will come together once it is mailed out. Once that was done Molly was so nice to address everything with stamps and was ready to mail. The final product was beautiful! I would definitely go to Molly again if I needed any invitations or even artwork done :) Thank You Molly SOOO Much! <3

A long, long time ago (almost 15 years), my husband Fred and I decided to get married. Rather quickly. You see, my father was terminally ill, and didn’t have much time left, so we made the decision to get married quickly, so that he could still be a part of the celebration. I was trying to figure out how I could put a wedding together within 7 weeks, going into the winter holidays, and actually be able to make it happen.
Enter Molly. Molly not only helped me plan the wedding, she designed my invitations and thank-you cards, crafted my bridal bouquet (along with all the other flowers), and made all the decorations for the church (which I still have and use at Christmas). I had wanted to use some type of a rose on my invitations, and couldn’t find anything I liked. Molly painted a beautiful rose, and used it as the background for my invitations. As a wedding gift, Molly gave me the framed painting, which I have hanging on my wall, and underneath it sits my bridal bouquet in a vase. I also have a framed invitation on the wall, and the flowers for my mother and father (both deceased now) are tucked behind the corner of each frame. Such memories of a happy time!
Zoom to today. My son is getting married in a couple of months. He is from Ohio, his fiancé is from Texas. We were trying to find a way to carry on the theme of “Ohio meets Texas”, but again, couldn’t find anything we liked. I finally had a “moment” and realized I needed to call Molly! I explained our vision, and she came through for us as I knew she would! She painted my future daughter-in-law’s bouquet and incorporated the bouquet along with the states into beautiful invitations and thank-you cards. We are currently working on itineraries and programs, and I can’t wait to see what is coming!
I love that Molly was a huge part of my wedding so, so many years ago, and now she is once again playing a part in my son’s upcoming wedding. I love that Molly can take what we “imagine”, and creatively turn it into something stunning!
If you are looking for someone to take your “imagines” and turn them into something extraordinary, Molly (Maxe Designs) is your gal!
- Kim, Mother of the Groom (Sean & Alex) 9-19-16
Molly was great to work with designing or wedding invitations. She is a full service designer! We wanted book marks for our guests of a poem I had written and she incorporated our one-of-a-kind design on that as well. Molly really listened to me and the vision I had. I can hardly wait for the world to see what she designed! I am beyond excited! She is very competitively priced and the product she comes up with will blow you away. Her designs and creative energy are beautiful. She was easy to work with and always available for her brides. She is encouraging and supportive to her brides and will put your mind at ease, knowing everything will be done to your satisfaction, even if you decide to change your mind at the last minute. She will work with you so your perfect day will be beautiful from Save- the-date cards or magnets, to invitations and on through to the Thank You notes. I highly recommend Molly and Maxe Designs to every bride who wants a One-of-a-Kind creative wedding.
- Sheryl & Kevin, 8-10-16
I worked with Molly on my wedding invitations and she was amazing! She did a great job of listening to what I wanted and changes that needed to be made. I received so many complements from my guests on how beautiful my invitations were. Molly truly cares about her clients and making sure each invite is unique. In addition, her customer service was exceptional. She was responsive and set expectations that she always met. There are not enough good things I can say about Molly or my experience!
Maxe Designs has been the most pleasant wedding vendor to work with thus far! Molly is just a joy and is extremely helpful and responsive. She printed the addressing on my invitation envelopes and everything turned out perfectly. She was so easy to work with and so accommodating. Two people I know have also worked with her in the past and highly recommended her. I have already recommended her to a few people I know and will always keep her in mind for any future printing needs!
- Traci & Steve, 6-11-16
Molly is THE BEST and I can't say enough good things about her! We met with her and two other designers for wedding invitations, but really, we were sold the minute we met her in her studio. Molly is such a great artist and she truly cares about making a design that is representative of the couple, and also working with demands of parents while maintaining the couple's identity through the invitations. We were especially appreciative of her artistry because we had no idea what we wanted for invitations, but the final product could not be more perfect!
She was so easy to work with and very responsive. Pretty much everything is done over email, which is great because we live in Maryland but the wedding is in Chicago. She makes sure to send final proofs before printing, and is so attentive to every detail. Also, these invitations are so unique and personalized, yet the cost is the same as other invitations that are definitely more generic.
Our wedding has not yet happened, but we just sent out invitations out and I have gotten so many compliments from friends and family about how beautiful the invitations are - and they are! We absolutely adore them. We are also working with Molly to make table numbers, the program, and escort cards - so we are really looking forward to getting those done too! We are relatively close to the wedding, and through all the planning and other vendors, Molly has been by far our favorite vendor and the invitations are definitely one of our favorite parts of the wedding. There's no reason to go with anyone else!
- Becca & Tom, 7-2-16
Molly is AMAZING. She is responsive, very professional, friendly and absolutely great at what she does! I contacted her for a last minute project and not only did she rearrange her schedule to fit mine, but she finished the work in 3 days! I gave her 7 days! My envelopes were not only beautifully done, but she gave them back to me in alphabetical order, which will be so helpful!
I can't recommend Molly enough and wish I had found her sooner! Will definitely use her again if I have the opportunity!
- Kari, 5-7-16
Molly is a genius!!! I worked with her to design my wedding invitations and I could not be happier with them! She worked magic turning my initial thoughts and random ideas into the perfect invitation to represent me and my groom. They are gorgeous and true representation of who we are! I cannot recommend Maxe Designs strongly enough!!! She is professional, friendly, responds promptly to emails and just generally does a great job putting you at ease and making you feel like you’ve known her forever. You can tell that she loves what she does and is as passionate about her designs as the brides are!
- Sharon & David, 3-20-16
Molly is a saint. I met with her at a bridal show and thankfully I had her information. I was a bit behind in getting my invitations out and Molly came to the rescue to not only get me the most perfect invitation but quickly. She was professional and easy to talk to. She is a gem!!!!
- Katarina & Jonathan, 4-2-16
Molly was great to work with! I do a lot of "stamping" and homemade cards and it's always the design part that takes the longest to develop. So we had Molly design the invitations, programs and thank you cards and she gave me the ability to print and assembly. She truly is an artist and responses quickly to all inquires.
- Julie, Mother of the Bride (Rachel)
Molly was such a pleasure to work with! Our invitations turned out so unique and beautiful. I'm so glad we went with Maxe Designs! - Rachel & Trey 4-10-16
It took me a whole day to reach out to Molly after I received and opened my box that exploded with grace, elegance and class I was just speechless ! The inviations are just amazing beyond belief. It doesn’t help that she packaged them so nice and neat in another crafty creative beautiful box that was delightful as well. Those who I decided to share some of my scrumptious joy with also had jaw dropping reactions when I showed them sneak peak pictures from my IPhone of what was delivered to my door step early Tuesday morning. I just want to thank her for sharing her creative spirit with me and my soon to be hubby. It was truly a blessing to work with someone so kind and patient for an event that is so precious and dear to me.
- Talisa & Andre 4-10-16
I can't say or rave enough about Molly. Molly was excellent!!!!!! I would highly recommend her. She was great to work with. She was hands down our favorite wedding vendor. We knew nothing else about our wedding but as soon as we met Molly about 1 year and 9 months before our actual wedding, we knew we wanted her to do our invitations. She goes above and beyond what you would expect. She came to our apartment on a couple of different occasions to work with us. I can't say that about any of our other wedding vendors. Her designs and creativity were exactly what we were looking for. All of her things are one of a kind designs that she creates. Her designs are personalized to what you want and see for your wedding, they are not just a cookie cutter design. She is there every step of the way making sure you like what you see and makes things go very smoothly. She is prompt, courteous, and professional in every step along the way. She runs things like a well oiled machine. You never have to worry about a thing. Once you give her your deadline she makes sure everything is done well in advance. We had invitations, place cards, menus, and fan programs all done by Molly. We had a compliment from a family member that our wedding invitations was one of the nicest invitations they had ever received. Score!!! We just had the best experience with Molly!!! We would highly recommend working with her.
- Heather & Adam, 8-1-15
Working with Maxe Designs for my wedding was an amazing experience. I loved that Mollly was able to create unique designs that matched my vision. She was incredibly supportive, professional and flexible. Everything turned out so beautifully and I would definitely recommend her and work with her again in the future.
- Cherryl & Cedrick, 8-22-15
If you ever want to get your invites done, I recommended Maxe Designs! She did a FANTASTIC job on our invitations. She designs what my fiancé & I both wanted, including giving us a lot of samples and we choose which one we like. If we wanted to change it, she is flexible with our requests. I like it that we could even contact her through her cell phone and emails. Also, she is quick on responses both in emails and phone. 10 thousand thumbs up and I'm glad we went to Maxe Designs. =]
- Mai & Matt, 8-29-15
Molly is simply "amazing." Her stunning designs are unique to each individual. She took my fiancé and I conceptual design and turned it into a masterpiece. Our family and friends have raved about our unique invitations and are excited about attending our upcoming nuptials.
- Angela & Maurice, 9-5-15
It was a pleasure to work with Molly! Her enthusiasm is what makes you trust her work. Besides that once she showed me her work,I was in shock on what beautiful masterpieces she can create. The whole time we kept in touch, she was always responsive which is important in your wedding timeline. I am so happy with the work she created for us. We went thinking that it was going to be a simple invitation but it made our guest surprised! When they saw our invitations they could not wait for the big day since they said the invitation was so colorful, "So Alive!". Overall, she is a definite person to hire for your wedding invitations. She didn't let me down!! She's the best!!
- Melissa & Richardo, 10-3-15
Molly is a Great designer! Fantastic personality and really made my wedding invitations come alive!! They are so beautiful! Her personal touches really elevates the experience! Thank you molly!!!
- Michelle & David, 10-4-15
MAXE Designs - Rocks!
When it comes to wedding stationary and creative art there is no choice but to choose Molly Axe (MAXE Designs)! Not only is she creative, easy to work with, and passionate about her work, but also has a wonderful personality that makes the process of picking and customizing stationary fun! We looked at over 4 different stationers before finding Molly. Once we met her we knew immediately that she was perfect based on her sample work and bubbly personality.
Molly worked patiently with us from day 1 in creating a one of a kind wedding stationary experience from our invitations, mass programs, and place cards to our thank you cards. She is truly an exceptional artist with creativity and a knack for getting to know the client where she is able to pull things out of you that you sometimes didn't know you wanted yourself. Molly's energy level and positive attitude is absolutely infectious and makes you excited to interact with her every chance you get.
Her work is all original for her clients, she designs based on what you want and balances collecting your ideas and vision with her creativity, it was so fun to be a part of the process and results are incredible.
When we say easy to work classic examples of Molly going beyond our expectations was meeting us close to our home to drop off final prints, turning around corrections from mistakes we made on our guest list in less than 24hrs (fedex things overnight), and even laying out our mass programs with close attention to detail. Molly did everything for us from design, to print, stuff/prep invites, address, stamp and deliver to us! Complete start to finish services, incredible! It took so much stress off of us it allowed us to focus on other big day preparations!
Again, we cannot stress enough how great Molly is and can promise all you worried couples out there looking for the perfect stationer with a creative and personal touch you don't need to look further than Molly Axe (MAXE Designs). She truly goes above and beyond and is an exceptional artist and professional. She was the best vendor we interacted with during our wedding experience!
~ Kirsten & Dan, 8-15-15
Amazing Experience! Gorgeous! Unique! Pretty!
These are just a few of the words that our guests used to describe our invitations upon receiving them. We received calls and messages once our guests received our boarding pass invitations; not just because they received them, but to tell us how much they LOVED them and how much they looked just like real tickets. Words can't describe how excited we were to hear this!
Molly has been an absolute pleasure to work with! Not only did she listen to exactly what we wanted, she was very patient and she made herself very accessible throughout the process. I met Molly at a busy bridal expo. From the first time she contacted us, she included such personal elements about us, our wedding and our vision, that we never felt like just another pair of clients. She had actually listened to what I said when I first met her on that busy day! It felt as if Molly really wanted to help make our day special and wonderful. She was always so energetic, excited and positive that you couldn't help but be the same.
Molly certainly exceeded our expectations and we couldn't be any happier! She saw our vision and helped it become more than we could have ever imagined! Absolutely amazing!
~ Sharvetta & Ralph, 11-21-15
Designing with Molly
It's hard to put into words how amazing Molly is and how wonderful she was to work with!!!! I met Molly at a bridal expo in January (2 weeks after my engagement and 6 months before the wedding). She was SO friendly and took the time to answer my questions. When I walked away from her booth, I told my sister that I would have to find a way to work with Molly, even if it meant rearranging my wedding budget a bit. The designs Molly created for me are breathtaking!!!! Could I have printed basic invitations myself and saved a bit of money? Sure, but I NEVER would have had the peace of mind that I had working with Molly. I have no artistic bones in my body but I would tell Molly what I liked and didn't like about something, she'd tweak it, and send a new design to me either later that night or the following evening. She even hand-painted me a keepsake box that matched my wedding invitations exactly! Work with Molly, there's no way you could be disappointed!!!! I almost forgot--just before Molly shipped my designs to me, she asked if I wanted her to pick up the stamps for the RSVP envelopes and add them to my final bill. I said yes and when my designs arrived in the mail, she had the envelopes stuffed and ready for me to address, stamp, and seal! What a blessing this was!
~ Holly & Brent, 6-27-15
Absolutely incredible experience!! 150% recommend!!!
Words cannot describe how happy I am!!! We did everything from invitations to place cards to programs to thank you cards and everything in between!! Pricing was very competitive to the other vendors I looked at, and the invitations and other products I received were more than worth it!!! Every single item was one of a kind, designed just for us, and absolutely gorgeous! The entire process of design was incredible. All the planning of a wedding, with all the decisions and choices, can be so stressful. With Molly and Maxe Designs, every option was amazing, and she made sure to make the whole experience fun and stress free! I recommend Maxe Designs to everyone I know for any occasion, and especially weddings!!! The whole experience was so fantastic and wonderful I cannot say enough how happy I am!!!
~ Jillian & Gage, 9-12-15
My experience with Molly was fantastic! She has a tremendous amount of energy and creativity which is so refreshing for an overwhelmed bride. Within minutes of meeting her I knew she was the perfect fit for my fiancé and I. I felt confident in knowing that she understood my direction, which has since exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an affordable, unique and fun stationary experience. You won't regret it!
~ Natalie & Jake, 11-14-15
Molly did a fabulous job in designing our wedding invitations. She went above and beyond! When we had to order more invitations, she worked in a timely manner. Not only is she professional, but she takes the time to get to know us as a couple, our likes and dislikes and just us in general. I highly recommend Molly to anyone for their Wedding Invitations and Thank You cards.
~ Cassandra & Tim, 8-8-15
Molly did absolutely wonderful work for my wedding! She created gorgeous watercolor invitations that were exactly what I wanted. Additionally, she made beautiful place cards and signs for my reception. She was enthusiastic, professional, responsive, and above all, extremely committed to listening to what I wanted and going above and beyond to make it happen. I can't recommend her enough! Thank you, Molly!
~ Rachel & Andrew, 8-1-15
Beautiful unique designs
Molly did our invitations and they are simply beautiful. I loved that she was able to customize the invitations to meet our needs. She also designed one of a kind invitations and they could not have been more perfect. I love them. Molly provides excellent customer service, is prompt and is always willing to help and adapt to my vision and what I need. She gave us options which was helpful for my fiance and I to talk through what we wanted. I really enjoyed working with her and would definitely recommend her.
~ Leigh & Joe, 11-7-15
Molly was an absolute joy to work! The wedding planning process can be a bit overwhelming, but Molly made choosing beautiful affordable invitations a breeze. Everyone couldn't stop talking about the one of a kind design she created for us. Not only did she create a one of a kind invitation, but she also did our rsvps, information cards, thank you cards, labeled all the envelopes, and picked up all the stamps for us! Last minute I added 24 table numbers for her and custom name cards (which were beautiful!) I will never use anyone else when we need invitations! Molly you're the best!!!
~ Celia & Bob, 10-3-15
We decided to choose Maxe Designs for our invitations for many reasons. However, the main two reasons would be the customer service we received upon selecting the vendor and the design of the samples we saw. Molly was very professional and responsive during the design process. We highly recommend couples to use Molly for their paper goods for their big day. It was a pleasure working with a super responsive and talented designer. We recommend this stationary company for those that want a complete look and style for their big event. Molly designed my invitations, place cards, programs and bridal thank you cards! I have already recommend her to my colleague and will refer others to her as well.
~ Kara & David, 9-20-15
Invitations were perfect and Molly was wonderful to work with
Our original design invitations are beautiful. They were created to fit our lives and our personality.
Molly was given a short amount of time to create these one of a kind invitations. They were delivered in a timely manor and were high quality. We are so pleased and would recommend Molly to everyone planning a wedding.
Molly was a pleasure to work with. I cannot say enough good things about Molly and Maxe Designs.
~ April & Jayne, 8-22-15
Molly was an absolute gem to work with. She has a true gift for creating beautiful art. I am not a creative person and didn't have any designs or even colors in mind, but Molly made such great suggestions and helped design the perfect invitations. I was excited for my guests to receive them and even more thrilled when I received compliments on the gorgeous invitations. Molly communicated in a very professional manner and made sure that everything was executed in a timely and orderly fashion. I couldn't say enough good things about her! :)
~ Sandra & Zach, 9-12-15
Molly is absolutely amazing. She truly cares about making your invitations the best for you. She puts in a great amount of time and effort focusing on your design and making it what is best for you and your wedding. I loved working with Molly and could not be happier the final result. Thank you so much Molly for making our special day even more special with our beautiful invitations!

Wizard of Oz & Batman Invitations
It was a great experience to have Molly design my wedding invitations. Right from the start she was very excited for new ideas. I wanted something that would reflect what my fiancé and i liked. We wanted our guests to see us when they opened up and saw the invitations. Molly was very welcoming, excited and motivated when designing. She is very understanding and makes the best out of every idea. She is the best, she knows how to accommodate her customers and makes everything workout perfectly. Service is 100% the Quality is great! I'm looking forward to keep designing with her in the future. I recommend her because she is a great professional in her field and gave me what i really wanted for my wedding invitations. pened up and saw the invitations.

“Couldn't be happier!
Molly is absolutely wonderful! On our first meeting she drove an hour to meet us and I can't say enough good things about her bubbly personality and willingness to work with the ideas we had in mind. We told her what we were thinking and she created a one of a kind, hand-painted design that was so much better than I could have ever imagined. She works so hard and will go out of her way to provide for the customer. Every time we needed to discuss invites she would promptly email or ask if she could drive and meet us to work anything out. I couldn't be more happy with her customer service and amazing, amazing, designs. I'm so grateful that Molly designed our invites and programs...we couldn't have asked for anyone better!”
~ Brooke and David, 12-27-14
“Great experience - Molly was fantastic to work with. She listened and really got to know who we were as individuals and a couple. This allowed her to create designs that were reflections of my husband and I. She even found a way to incorporate one of my husband's photos in our invitations. Molly truly helped make our wedding wonderful and unique. Love her!”
~ Monica and Otis, 10-24-14
“Maximum Satisfaction from Maxe Designs LLC!
I met Molly Axe of Maxe Designs LLC at bridal show, when researching "NOT run-of-the-mill" invitation/print goods sources for my daughter's wedding. Her eye-catching display of her unique artwork incorporated into invitation designs made me stop, but it was her outgoing personality and obvious passion for assisting brides towards their goal of "personal touch" invitations that had me telling my daughter "She's the one!".
Molly was incredible to work with, and listened intently and carefully to the bride/groom to design their one of a kind invitations, ceremony programs, escort cards, table signs--everything printed that made our guests say "Wow! This SO captures the personalities the bride and groom!"
The quality of her materials, flexibility to accommodate the couple's wishes, CREATIVITY, and ease of communication were key to the great experience. However, it was Molly's sincere 'joie de vivre' and desire to please the couple that made this part of the planning process truly a wonderful, positive memory! Her personal touch was the best gift of all!”
~ Karyn, Mother of the Bride
“CUSTOMIZED TO THE EXTREME!!!
Molly was incredible from day one! Our situation was quite difficult… My groom and I live on Oahu, my parents live in Michigan, my grooms family lives in Eastern NC, and we are getting married in the mountains of south western NC. So…Destination wedding, understatement of the year!
Molly not only remembered time difference, and kept me and my parents constantly updated with email, but she changed design after design element with very vague directions via email and text, to give us the PERFECT invitations, RSVP cards, Programs, and Thank you cards!
We are now 5 days from our wedding and all I have heard is how much everyone has loved the invitations, I can only imagine the compliments we will get for the programs and thank you cards!
(Our invitation is a pergola with tiger lilies!!)
MOLLY is the BEST!!! Thank you MOLLY!!”
~ Brittany and Christopher, October 25, 2014
“Molly is the best!
We are so grateful we found Molly. She created our save-the-dates, our invitations, menu cards, place settings, and so much more. Everything was beautiful and unique for us and our wedding. She was a joy to work with and she went above and beyond to help us get things done. She took the ideas we had and ran with them. She is very personable, a joy to work with. I highly recommend working with Molly!”
~ Katie and Vance, September 25th, 2014
Molly with Maxe Designs was awesome to work with!! The invitations turned out beautiful and were beyond my expectations! Molly was able to take my ideas and visions and use them to create something beautiful and unique to my wedding. She is so passionate about what she does and goes above and beyond to make the bride feel special and to make the design exactly what the bride wants. I would highly recommend her. I have never seen invitations like hers before. Her invitations are unique and personal. I had so many compliments from other people on my invitations.”
~ Heather and John, 9-14-2014
Molly designed our save-the-dates, invitations, ceremony cards, menu cards, escort cards, bottle labels, and thank you cards. Everything was custom and she made changes to our designs until they were exactly what we wanted. Her communication was outstanding. We worked together for over a year and i enjoyed all the designs she created for us. I would recommend Molly for any part of their stationary needs. She is so positive and it really helped during those stressfull times in the planning process.”
~ Samantha and Nick, 9-6-14
“Molly was so nice. Everything she made up for us was amazing. Everyone that went to my wedding talked about the invitations and programs. That's not something that usually comes up.
She took the time to get to know us, to find out what we like and what kind of people we are. She always had everything done when needed. She went above and beyond. She even reprinted our programs the day before because of trouble with people in our wedding party.
I would suggest her to anyone and everyone!”
~ Ashlee and Aaron, September 6, 2014
“One word AMAZING!
We found Maxe Designs at a Bridal Show earlier this year. We wanted to find just a few things and invitations was one of them. Knowing what our wedding was going to be like, we wanted something unique, upscale and designed for us. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when it came to finding invitations. We came across Molly's booth and after going to booths beyond hers we knew there was no way anyone could compare to what Molly had to offer.
The next week I called and set up a time that my family, husband and I could meet. We are from the complete opposite side of the state from her and she met us half way, just for an initial meeting, if that doesn't speak volumes I don't know what does.
After working with Molly that day, we decided on all the things we wanted to have her do. She just doesn't do invitations, she did so much more. She made our Thank You cards, our table numbers, our menu cards, our programs, our place cards, our wall art guest book for people to sign, signs for candy bars; advice box, not to mention the beautiful hand painted aisle runner that she did for the actual ceremony. 42 foot long painted aisle runner not to mention.
She worked with us every step of the way, she got to know my husband and I's personality's and created a beautiful work of art just for us, that no one else can use, which is what we wanted; Unique. She was in contact with me every day checking in just to see how I was holding up as a bride, which showed so much care and professionalism out of one person.
The work she did on everything was so beautiful. So much time and effort went in to make our day what we dreamed of. When I needed things the next day, she got them to me, whether that was driving 2 hours to my house to meet me.
I honestly couldn't say enough about Molly and her beautiful creation. Not only did we use her for our wedding, but we will be using her for more things. Her art is beautiful, and she can make us invitations if needed!
Stop searching today for your invitations, choose Maxe Designs, and let Maxe help you Relax!
Thank you Molly for all that you did. Your artwork was beautiful and your hard worked made us feel so special, we couldn't have asked for anything more!”
~ The Huppertz - July 19th 2014
“Best way to have a perfectly personalized wedding!
I don't know about you, but when my husband and I began planning our wedding last year, I was faced with the decision of invitations. There are so many places/people/companies willing to print you invites and other paper-works for your big day.
Now, my husband and I, in an effort to have a "recreated wedding" sought out an artist that would be willing to design for us. The difference between having an authentic representation of us or just a premade idea to contribute to our big day was our deciding factor.
After finding Molly with Maxe Designs, I knew that we had found someone who would design with us from beginning to end. She is a gem. Scheduling, idea sharing, feedback, she is super flexible and helps you understand what you really want.
I know that sounds strange, but her help and insight really helped me articulate my ideas for our wedding theme. She is easy to get a hold of, timely to respond and even brought my decorations to my wedding site, TWICE!
She is the definition of good customer service and the epitome of a great artist. With a fantastic personality to go with, she goes above and beyond to help create your ideas and make your day perfect. She heavily impacted my wedding, and made its beautifully spectacular. I will keep her in mind for any art I ever need designed.”

“I found Molly at a bridal show that I decided to go to at the last minute. I am so glad I did go because invitations would have been far more stressful without her.
I had no idea what I wanted and she broke everything up step-by-step. The artwork was beautiful and the invites and thank you cards were a million times better than I could have hoped for and ten million times better than any website could have given me.
Her designs are One-of- a-Kind designed specifically for YOU. She never went ahead with decisions without talking to me first.
Many options for the artwork, colors, fonts, and wording were given. I never felt pressured into one design over another. She would even remind me when it was time to think about something else.
She was so full of energy and nice that I could not help but love her as much as I loved the artwork she produced.
The invites, registry cards, response cards, envelopes, stamps (for invites AND response cards), as well as the thank you cards only cost me about $400.
The value was fantastic, the artwork beautiful, and her customer service astounding.
Not only will she hook you up with amazing invites that your guests will love but she knows so many other vendors that she can hook you up with them too!
I highly recommend Molly for any invite needs. You will not regret the decision at all. Even my husband, who had only seen the suggested artwork and the final design, loved it all.
Even if you do not know what you want Molly is the best choice around!”

“Amazing invites!! I would 100% recommend Maxe Designs to anyone. Molly is amazing to work with and really allows a lot of input. Our invitations were absolutely beautiful and I couldn't be happier!! “
~ Jessica and Joe, 7-12-2014
“Maxe Designs, LLC is AMAZING!! I met Molly at a bridal show and from there on we were drawn to her. She was extremely friendly and had amazing designs. I gave her a picture of a design that I loved and she somehow made it even better! She is so creative and definitely has a talent in design. She works hard for you and doesn't quit until things get done. Molly was extremely personable and very flexible. She even provided us with some materials that we needed to create our own name placement cards. She also offered to cut them for us! Molly went above and beyond to make our invitations better than we could ever imagine. I highly recommend Molly and Maxe Designs, LLC for any of your invitations, programs, name cards, thank you cards, etc.”

“Molly created all the papers for my son's wedding in May 2014, working closely with the bride, bride's mom, and me. We were so very pleased with the customized invitation 'packet' that Molly designed, that we then asked her to make the wedding programs, rehearsal dinner invitations, place/escort cards for the reception, and 'thank you' cards for guests. The beautiful, personalized artwork done by Molly was a motif used in all these pieces, creating continuity in all the papers. Molly's prices are very reasonable and most of all, she is an absolute pleasure to work with. Molly's unending creative ideas, ability to convey the bride's vision into customized art, and patience through the process of designing and writing materials with a constant smile and positive, up-beat attitude made working with her a fun but calming process, instead of a stressful process.
Thank you, Molly!!”
~ Kitty Scheffers, Mother of the Groom (Nate and Lindsay) 5-24-14
I first met Molly at a wedding event and not only did her work blow me away but so did you kindness and personality. She is the sweetest person to work with and very easy to work with. I told her that I wanted boxed invitations, something that you really don't see anymore these days, and she became just as excited as me!!! Boy did we have so much fun designing!!! I told her what my now husband and I were thinking and she sketched everything we said out and made tons of notes! :)
She even came up with two canvases (that she hand painted herself), one for the menu/table seating and one for the guests to sign. It was beautiful, different and the perfect idea to go with my black tie theme.
The invitations are still something my friends and family talk about. She also hand painted the boxed invitations too! Molly is just amazing and very talented! I
f you work with her you will NOT be disappointed! She is patient and works with your schedule. Not only does she design but she makes the planning a lot easier on you! :) She checked a lot of "to do's" off my wedding check list, she's so helpful!
Thanks for everything Molly! Everything you made was flawless! I miss designing with you!!!!”
~ Jennifer and Elijah, 5-31-14
“We designed with Molly for our daughter's wedding in May. She designed our invitations, ceremony programs, our favor, and our table numbers and name cards.
In addition to being fun, Molly was great to work with. We started with a very rough idea of what we wanted. Molly took those ideas, developed them into a design that truly represented my daughter's passions. Usually via email we worked together to redesign based on preferences and conversations. After input from many fronts, Molly was professional in offering her expertise and opinions. She was patient with us, as we really chewed on every decision. Molly exceeded our expectations, and the feedback we received from our guests was also positive. Many said the invitations were the most elaborate they had EVER seen! That made planning our special occasion so much fun!”
~ Vickie Asaro, Mother of the Bride (Lindsay and Nate) 5-24-14
“We found Molly and MAXE Designs at the Grand Rapids Bridal Show about 9 months before our event. I was living long-distance in Minnesota, but my mom and my bridesmaids who attended the event immediately felt like she would be able to portray our personalities as a couple accurately.
At first we started with just invitations and thank-you notes but it quickly turned into programs, reception menus, welcome signs, table numbers & titles, wine bottle keepsakes and our very own personalized artwork that is now hanging on our living room wall. Molly was able to take our initial designs and carry them through all of our paper products to create a very cohesive, elegant look through the entire wedding and reception. Granted, the expense of the invitations and paper products did increase a bit, but the quality of the product is well worth the money.
Molly was very easy to work with online and would often respond within 24-36 hours of my emails with new options and edits. There was one small problem with the color of the ink on the programs due to the type of paper it was printed on, but Molly was able to reprint and refold all of the programs the night before our wedding without any added stress to our already busy weekend.
She was always very friendly and calm when we talked on the phone and was available via calls, texts and emails. We have become very good friends over the course of the 9 months planning the wedding and I look forward to using her in the future for other events. I would, without hesitation, recommend her to anyone looking to make their wedding personalized and memorable.”
~ Alaina and Michael, 10-5-13
“Molly, you are so amazing and such a blessing to me. What talent you have, you give freely and with joy. Thank you for helping to make my wedding beautiful!”
~ Loren and Derek, 5-18-13
“I created my own invites, but I used Molly to print names and addresses on my envelopes. Even though this was a small job for her, she was very professional, did a great job in creating a font and color for me, and treated me as though I was placing a big order with her.
She was very friendly and pleasant to interact with.”
~Ashley and Cord
“Molly, Maxe Designs LLC, was a great start to our happily ever after. The cards were specially designed for us. My husband and I enjoyed and had a great experience with this vendor. Thumbs up Molly!!”
~ Mwila and Byron
“Dear Molly ~ Thank you oh so very, very much for all of your help and advice and support during the past year! I don’t know what we would have done without you! JEverything turned out perfectly, you were able to capture “us” exactly how we wanted!
I am so glad you were able to join us for the celebration – I hope you enjoyed yourself! We are looking forward to working with you in the future. I’m sure we can get into some more trouble! J
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
~Alaina and Michael, 10-5-13
“Thank you so much for everything that you did for us with the wedding! You did such a wonderful job and everything turned out beautiful! Thank you also for being our “Mistress of Ceremony.” You were a huge help to us! I don’t know what we would have done without you!! Thank you so much for being part of our special day! We really appreciate it! You are awesome!”
~John and Heather, 9-15-13 .............................................................................................................................................................
“Molly, All of your work was just beautiful. The labels, programs, invitations, etc were so original. It was great to get to know you better. You’ve been such a great friend to Heather. You could make a professional mistress of ceremonies. We couldn’t have had such a beautiful wedding without you! No matter what the request was (even the shoe inserts) you smiled and tried to help. “
Thanks so much,
~Mary and Tim (Parents of the bride, Heather)
“It has been a pleasure to work with Molly and Maxe Designs. She is a wonderful artist who listens to your ideas and makes them come to life. She is a joy to work with and made everything easy for us. She designed the wedding invitations, menus, table numbers, seating chart, art work for the guest signing, and thank you notes for my daughter's and son-in-law's wedding. All the guests commented on how beautiful and unique the wedding and reception stationary was. The seating chart and guest signature pictures are now hanging on the happy bride and groom's walls as art work.
I highly recommend Molly to everyone! Working with Molly is like working with a friend!”
~ Annamarie and Mitchell Groenenboom, June 22, 2013
“Amazing Lady! Amazing Art Work!! Truly a personal experience when working with Molly!”
~ Betsy and Brenden Schlott, 6-1-13
“Molly was great to work with and very happy to do revisions to make it perfect for me!”

“Molly of Maxe Designs may be located a thousand or more miles from my location, but she always made me feel I was close enough to share a cup of coffee with her while designing the items I needed for my client's wedding! Molly has such creative ideas and did not hesitate to share them with me. While searching the Etsy sight for ideas and shop owners who could steer me in the right direction for my needs, I could say it was by chance that I came upon Maxe Designs, but I say it was more being attracted to her web site. I saw her style of work she had done and was very excited to contact her. Once I did, I no longer felt lost but suddenly had a vision of a finished product in my mind.
The process of designing with Molly was professional yet warm and personal. Communication was constant and I never was left hanging as to where we were in the planning and completion of our project. Molly designed wedding programs (and even helped me with hard to think of language for "sticky situations."), Table Numbers that had background photos of the bride and groom (each one with an overlay of vellum that contained the table number that could be removed later to reveal the photo only), and escort cards. Each of these items contained original, designed artwork of each flower used in the reception table centerpieces. What amazed me is that Molly never had a piece of fabric with the exact color but managed to match it perfectly with no problem.
I received the package in adequate time for the wedding and everything arrived in perfect condition. All I had to do was remove the wrapping, place the photos in the frames, set the escort cards on the table, and lay the programs in a tray.
I would recommend Molly of Maxe Designs to anyone who is planning a wedding, and wants to feel like a guest at their own wedding or event without experiencing the stress that comes along with planning a wedding or event. Or maybe you would like an original drawing done of a favorite photograph. Molly can do it all! I can't wait to begin designing with her again and again!”
~ Elinor Adler, 5-4-13 – Wedding of Danelle and Greg
“Molly is an exceptionally talented artist with ability to listen to your desires and create masterpieces!
We had a Kentucky Derby style wedding and she developed unique pieces for each part that included the normal invitations, thank you notes, envelopes, etc., but also went above and beyond by creating pieces such as a sign to help guide our guests to the ceremony site, Grandparent Memoirs, a sign explaining a good luck horse shoe tale for our guest favors that were real horse shoes!, a guest book....I could go on and on!
Basically, there is nothing that Molly can't do. If you give her an idea she will present a few of her own and voila! I would highly recommend her for any occasion, especially a wedding. She is timely, efficient, creative, sincere and an absolute pleasure to work with.”
~ Andy & Tracie Wierda, 5-5-12
“Molly - We appreciate how you were able to take our ideas and create the ideal invitation. The colors and art were exactly what we wanted. Everyone commented on our unique invitations and guest book! Thank you again. “
~ Tyler & Hilary Hatfield, 8-4-12
“We cannot say enough great things about Molly and Maxe Designs!!
Her work and her service were unmatched by any other vendor we dealt with while planning for our wedding!
When I first hired Molly, it was to do our invitations. Wow! They were perfect--and we were not the only ones who thought so.
More people called to say how beautiful our invitations were than to congratulate us on our engagement!
When one of the bridesmaids dropped them off at the post office, the woman working actually stopped her and asked who did the invitations because they were 'the most beautiful invitations' she had ever seen!
They were so perfect, in fact, that we hired Molly to do EVERYTHING for our reception (programs, menus, place cards, seating chart, and gift tags).
Her work on all of them was so incredible. We could not have been more pleased with the results.
At least as important to a couple on the verge of getting married, Molly was a breeze to work with!
She always responded in a timely fashion (even when the bride failed to), and she was never anything but understanding.
The few changes we suggested were always handled with such a positive attitude that we looked forward to working with Molly every step of the way.
She repeatedly said that she wanted to do whatever she could to take the stress off of our shoulders, and that is exactly what she did!
We knew that we did not have to worry about anything being done by Molly, and that feeling, as any bride-to-be will tell you, is priceless!
We have suggested Molly to ALL of our friends, and we will continue to do so!!
Thank you for everything, Molly!!”
~Rachel and Jason, 8-11-12
It has been such a pleasure working with you and integrating your talent and beautiful creations into our wedding day!
You were a joy to work with as you captured each of our visions in a creative way.
We loved your "team" approach as we worked together to incorporate our ideas with your exceptional talent into unique layouts.
We were very happy with the end result of both our wedding invitations and ceremony programs...and so were our guests! At my bridal shower, many guests commented on the beautiful wedding invitations they had received.
Thank you for making our wedding day even more special!”

“After spending the last year planning every detail of a wedding with my daughter including hosting our own reception, we had many encounters with many vendors.
We initially did not know anyone in the business of wedding invitations, but met Molly at a bridal show.
Our initial impression was that she was someone that we would enjoy working with.
Well, not only did we enjoy working with Molly, but she proved to be an excellent choice in every regard.
Molly was extremely positive, flexible, creative, professional and prompt.
She met every deadline, and went out of her way to meet with us personally on several occasions.
She created and printed beautiful wedding invitations, programs for the ceremony
and finally made thank you notes that were designed specifically to match our theme.
We were extremely pleased to have had the opportunity to work with Molly, and benefit from all of her outstanding talents and service. “
“Molly - Thank you so much for everything! Our invites & thank you's turned out so awesome!
I will definitely recommend you to any of my friends who get married in the future!
I was so glad you could come to the wedding!”
~Alesha & Steven, 8-4-12
“Molly is awesome!
Molly did a wonderful job with my invitations. Within a month we met a few times to come up with a design and she got them printed and back to me very quickly.
The price was very reasonable and I am so happy that I went with her instead of someone else because I got to help design my wedding invitations and make them personal and unique!”
~Lyndsay & Justin, 4-21-12
“HIGHLY Recommend Maxe Designs -- I found Molly on the knot.com and gave her a call to see about prices.
She was not only amazing to work with but her prices were incredibly reasonable.
Our seating chart had a hand painted picture on it done by Molly that we now have hanging in our living room.
She also did a poem that we put on each table and our programs.
She sent proofs of everything and made sure we were completely happy.
I was really comfortable asking her to adjust small things and she was happy to do it.
We were so pleased with not only the finished product/prices but the customer service.
We used her for our thank yous too because I wanted to give her more business.
I highly recommend Maxe Designs.”
~ Jenn & Kevin
Thank you so much for all your help for our wedding! :-) (July 15)
You did such a nice job on our invitations & programs (we got a lot of compliments)!
We will always remember our special day ~ thank you for being a part of it!
We truly appreciated everything you did! Thanks again!”

Featured Vendor: Maxe Designs
December 4th, 2010 - By Nichole Odijk DeMario - Shore Bride Magazine (http://nwitimes.com)
What do you get when you couple an artist with a graphic designer? Molly Axe.
Ten years ago, Axe created a business she knew she would love, Maxe Designs.
Maxe Designs can fulfill all of your wedding stationery needs—from invitations to reception menus to thank you cards. But Axe steps it up a notch. Not only does she design unique stationery, but she also incorporates one-of-a-kind artwork into orders as well.
Axe begins each project with a blank piece of paper. After she discusses the couples’ ideas for their wedding day, she goes to her drawing board to create an original piece of artwork to incorporate into their stationery.
“You will not find an invitation where it’s ‘insert name,’ ‘insert name’ done at Maxe Designs,” owner Axe says.
Axe’s recent work includes a wedding with a carousel theme for which Axe created a custom admission style ticket response card with a smaller ticket attached to the couple’s favors. Her artwork was a carousel horse she used on their thank you cards.
Axe tries to “give [couples] art they can afford,” and she carries that affordability into her business model. She says she is willing to work with anyone’s budget. “I can give suggestions for ways to cut their costs down, brainstorm and be as flexible possible . . . I will do whatever it takes to get it done,” Axe says.
She has worked with budgets from as little as $150 (minus postage) to upwards of $2,000, and, as an extra thank you for the couples’ business, she provides the thank you cards at cost.
Axe offers a few additional amenities as well. Regardless of her original quote, the couple only pays for the number of invitations they need. She will also matte and frame the couples’ custom artwork, which she says parents often like to purchase as a wedding present.
She has worked with couples across the country and prints in house. She recommends couples allow three to four weeks for their order to be completed, which includes printing time.
“I take a lot of pride in what I do and I want to do all I can for my clients,” Axe says. “I want your stationery to be as unique as you are.”
