Rachel Wedding Date: January 6, 2016-Cincinnati OH

Working with Joni has been an incredible experience! She created original invitations, thank you cards, escort cards and programs for our wedding! I was very happy with the products she produced and her unique sense of design. A family friend who is a wedding planner recommended her and I’m so happy she did; I knew Joni was the one I wanted to work with the second I met her, and she was the only designer I met with. Overall Joni and I probably exchanged thirty plus emails and she always responded within a day, but most of the time within a few hours. Joni was willing to make as many edits as needed to get to a product that I was 100% happy with! Meeting with Joni was always fun! She was always on time and it was just a fun process to get together, throw around ideas and see what her creative mind would come up with. I was by no means into a traditional design so she created something modern and fun for us! I thought the price for the product was completely worth it. Her quotes were presented within 48 hours of meeting with her and I believe they were responsible for what was given. She was very respectful of budget because I was upfront with her about what we were willing to spend. She’s able to work with you and come up with solutions if you’re trying to watch what you spend. Overall I highly recommend working with Joni! Not only is she professional and respectful but she’s fun and easy going and really strives to please her brides. The first time I met with her, you could just tell how much she loves what she does and enjoys getting to celebrate with brides. She’s a joy to work with and she’s an incredibly hard worker.

Joni was an absolute joy to work with; our wedding invitations were artful and stunning! She had lots of great designs and fonts to choose from, and they were printed on quality, thick card stock. Not only that, but we needed them quickly, and she was able to have them ready for us in TWO DAYS — she even met us in person to deliver them! She was incredibly supportive of our same-sex wedding, so rest assured that she is happy to work with ALL couples. 5 stars all around!

Joan with Cincinnati by Design was the ABSOLUTE best. At our initial meeting she showed samples and then took note of my own ideas and vision, and then brought that vision to life. No matter what design style you hope to achieve Joan can design the invites you have always hoped for. In addition to invitations, Joan put a creative spin on our menu and seating chart and brought all my wants to life. Cincinnati by Design treats each client with great professionalism and genuinely cares about their happiness and making every want come to life. Joan puts forth the time into cultivating a personal relationship and getting to know her clients so she can add those personal touches! We couldn’t have been more satisfied with our invitations and menu designs. The BEST!

Megan Wedding Date: July 26, 2015-Columbus OH

Joni was amazing to work with! Everything she designs is beautiful and she is very flexible about any changes you may want. She is also highly responsive. She would sent me a prompt of the invitation via email and we’d message back and forth for any changes and by the next day (or sooner) we had the final product. She responded promptly and listened to whatever questions or concerns I had. But most importantly, the design was all her! In other words, we told her what we were looking for and she created something far more beautiful than anything we could think up ourselves. I would recommend her business to everyone! Cincinnati By Design is a wonderful company that was very flexible with price (especially considering we had a very tight budget to work with). So impressed by her work, professionalism, and friendliness.


Emily Wedding Date: November 11, 2015-Cincinnati OH


Working with Joni was great! She really listens to what you are interested and comes up with all sorts of amazing ideas. If you wanted a small tweak or a complete redo she’ll make it happen and then some. She made our save the dates, invitations, escort cards, and some thank you notes for my husband and I. They all tied together nicely. I’m extremely happy that we used her services, everything turned out perfectly!

Joni Bishop was a delight to work with. She listened attentively to all my ideas and added some of her own. Her personality is bubbly, her demeanor professional, and her work excellent. She was responsive and timely always. I felt she really cared about our invitations and our wedding.




Lara Wedding Date: October 2015-Washington DC

What can i say?? We were beyond pleased with the outcome of the invitations that we even laminated a few to save in our wedding album. Joan was and still very amazing. When you talk with her, instead of talking with someone you dont know, you talk to a friend. Weddings can be stressful but she calmed our nerves about not only the invitations but the whole thing. She was amazing and so was the service we received from her. You will not be disappointed!!!!

Lauren Wedding Date: October 2015-Cincinnati OH

Cincinnati By Design designed my wedding invitations for me. I could not say enough great things about Joan and her work. Joan really took her time to go over designs, colors, and styles that I liked.

I had custom designed invitations that couldn’t have turned out more perfect. Anytime I had a question or wanted to alter something Joan responded back very fast and changed it without hesitation. She designed them and printed my invitations very quickly. They very packaged very nicely when I received them.I received so many compliments about how beautiful the invitations were.

I could not say enough wonderful things about Cincinnati By Design. Joan was so nice and delightful to work with. She really cares about creating something memorable and special for you. I would recommend Cincinnati By Design to anyone. Thank you so much!

Beth Wedding Date: December 2014-Cincinnati OH

Working with Joni was absolutely wonderful and pain free. She has unbelievable customer service and she always responded to me right away. I met up with Joni for an initial meeting at panera and from there we were able to design the invitations right away. I told her my budget and she stuck right with it! My invitations turned out better than expected and everyone raved about how great they looked!

Joni made it an extremely simple process. We had our initial meeting, she sent me some designs. I chose the design I liked then she sent me a proof. After that she had them printed and I met up with her to get them. She also designed my wedding programs which turned out just as great as the invitations! Joni made everything some simple and easy that I did not have to worry about anything along the way! I will recommend her to everyone I know getting married in the future!


Rachel Wedding Date: December 2014-Cincinnati OH

Cincinnati By Design was a delight to work with! Joni was very patient with me as I changed my mind about what I wanted for my invitations, and she was very helpful throughout the process. The invitations she designed were a semi-custom design, a twist on one of her previous designs, and they turned out beautifully!

I received so many compliments on them, most telling me they were the most beautiful invitations they had ever seen!

The invitations were reasonably priced for the quality, and Joni threw in some extras too! We loved the invitations so much we had her design our Menu Cards for the reception too! The winter theme was gorgeous!



Gloria Wedding Date: September 2014-Cincinnati OH


Everything about Joni is AMAZING!!!!!!!!

We clicked on our first consultation. I told her my vision and she delivered BIG. People did not want to send in their RSVP card because it was so pretty!

Joni is very professional and responsive. Best of all, no other place beats her service at her price. I would definitely recommend her to any bride who wants perfection in their wedding stationery. Thanks Joni!

Thanks Joni!

Kirsten Wedding Date: May 2014-Cincinnati OH


Cincinnati By Design is great. I can’t say enough about how wonderful Joni was to work with for our wedding. She not only designed our custom wedding invitations where she completely captured the story of our engagement and our lives, but she helping us by designing other specialities that kept the color and graphic theme the same throughout the wedding. She designed our thank you notes, our programs, a ‘He Said, She Said’ poster display for the reception, and RSVP display for the reception. We had a destination wedding in New Orleans and then a hometown reception in Cincinnati. She designed the invitations and RSVPs for both events.

She was so flexible. I made changes last minute to things or needed help the day before our hometown reception she was on it. She was always there with the biggest smile and positive attitude – exactly what you need in the throws of wedding planning!

We got so many compliments on the invitation packages she designed because they were FUN and clear and captured our story. All the information people needed, including maps were on there. We framed all of Joni’s work because it IS art!

Most of all, she’s just a joy to work with. She became like a second mom to me during the wedding planning process and gave me advice so many things beyond just designing invitations. You get services beyond what you pay for with Joni. For how stressful wedding planning can get, you need to have a vendor you can depend on and loves working with brides. Joni has a love for weddings and capturing what the bride and groom want that is so contagious.

Hire Her!
