"Black Ink… Simply the best…

…The best people—Patti and her team are creative, engaged, knowledgeable and detail oriented.

The best product—every project I have had the pleasure of working on with Black Ink, whether it is a complete wedding, a creative party invitation or a Christmas Card, they have always been of the highest quality and perfect for the occasion. Whatever your budget, Black Ink will help you to create something that you will be proud to share with your family and friends.

The best experience—spending time at Black Ink is always a highlight in my day. The store is a wonderful place to stop in and pick up a gift or sit down at the famous black table and plan for your upcoming event.  If you are looking for the best, look no further."

5 stars all the way! Patti is incredibly knowledgable, warm, and understanding - she is a true master at her craft. My fiancé and I thought we had some idea of what we wanted our wedding invitations to look like, and Patti's keen eye, creative spirit, and very helpful suggestions completely turned our idea into reality. Now we have exceptionally made invitations that are beautiful, memorable, and so unique to my fiancé and me. We loved the entire experience with Patti at her shop!

From holiday cards, to baby shower invitations, and ( best of all) our daughter's destination wedding,  Patti and her incredible team have been superstars. Their eye for design, creativity, and thinking outside of the box create an unbeatable combination. Everything was done on time, with attention to every detail, and personalized for our family. I wouldn't go anywhere else!


I love this shop! They always have amazing gifts and beautiful stationery. If you are particular about your paper, it is the place to go!


"I can't say enough wonderful things about Patti Black and the team at Black Ink.  As an event planner, I am constantly looking for vendors with fresh ideas that can turn vision into reality.  Black Ink is definitely one of those vendors!  I have had the pleasure of working with them for several years on various projects ranging in size and scope.  They bring the same energy and enthusiasm to each of my events, giving me the confidence that the end product will exceed expectation.  Brainstorming sessions with Black Ink feel more like sitting around a friend's kitchen table, verses a simple phone order with a vendor, I always leave feeling they are just as excited about my projects as I am.  From invitations, gifts and gift wrap, to seating cards, I know I can trust the quality and product that Black Ink delivers."

Black ink is NO typical fine stationer. Patti, Lindsay and Sue are the most creative talented and innovative people you will ever work with when planning a party. The minute you step through Black Ink’s door… you know you will be sending a one of kind never replicated invite that sets the mood, tone and excitement for the party. Black ink is always my first stop when I start to plan a party. The minute you tell them what kind of party you are throwing Patti, Lindsay and Sue become incredibly excited and their endless creative fabulous ideas start flowing.

Black Ink designs and constructs unique ingenious invitations, gift tags, place cards, party favors, menu cards etc. for everything from an intimate dinner party to a large festive themed event. I recently threw a large 4 day event that was out of town for approximately 70 adults, and 90 kids. This party would have never been as successful, fun or memorable without Patti, Lindsay and Sue’s magical touch. They created a phenomenal invitation, an over the top travel packet, amazing graphic art for gift bags and gifts and endless creative place cards for all my guests. I could have never thrown a party of this magnitude without Black Ink’s help. Even when I had last minute details that needed to be executed… Patti, Lindsay and Sue burned the midnight oil to get it done for the party. There is truly no stationer in the world like Black Ink.

"Where do I begin?  Patti and her team are so helpful with all of our stationery, design and gift needs.  They have created logos, announcements, stationery and business cards for our business.  They are so friendly and their attention to customer service is so refreshing in the current market place.

When I am in need of the appropriate idea or gift they are a fabulous resource and they gift wrap too!!

I know that the Palisades business community is greatly enhanced by Black Ink and what they provide to the consumers here."

"Patti Black and the girls at Black Ink created some of the most beautiful paper products I have ever seen. They worked with me through out the entire year of planning the wedding and designed beautiful save-the-dates, invitations, programs, escort cards, menus--literally if it was made of paper, they did it. Patti is an expert on proper stationery etiquette and they designed some beautiful programs to help us save some money, too. They are great at getting everything ready in time (even last minute) and it is even just a breath of fresh air to walk into their store during all of the craziness of planning a wedding."

Every year I look forward to working with the creative team at Black Ink to create original and memorable holiday cards. There is no one like the Black Ink creative Team! They walk you through every step of the process and help you create masterpieces!

Black Ink is also my first stop for all my gift needs: teachers, friends, and of course, my personal favorite is their personalized stationery!

We are so fortunate to have Black Ink in our Community!

"I think your card this year is even more stupendous than usual.  I have never seen one like it.  Fabulous!"

Thank you so much for the well wishes.  I have loved every second of working with you and feel so fortunate to have made friends along the way.

I will be in with pictures as soon as I get them and hopefully we will have baby announcements soon to order, then First Birthday announcements, then Second Birthdays, etc, then engagement party invites, then wedding invitations for my first granddaughter, then more baby announcements.  Isn’t life just so wonderful?
