I ordered 200. 100 - black with gold lettering and 100 - white with silver lettering.
I added a bling to all the matches, didn't take very long because I add bling to everything these days however...
The black matches: over half of the black match books have scratches on the front where the lettering is. The scratches have rubbed off some of the black and white is showing through. Not a big deal really because they're not party favors - just putting them around the bar area and whom ever sees them can take one or not.
The white matches: very happy with the way they came out although these also had a scratch mark on them but I was able to rub it out.

I'm not one to write bad reviews but I was really, really disappointed in this purchase. I wasn't looking for perfection and I understand that out of 100 matchbooks, you're going to have a few 'not so great' ones. In my case, I ended up with just a handful of 'okay' ones. I would have been embarrassed to offer these to my wedding guests, as the first three letters of my name were barely legible on just about every matchbook. It's as if the foil didn't print or transfer correctly but they just sent them to me anyway. Gee thanks :( It was my first order with the Knot and this was a bit of bummer.

      Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop personalized matchbooks:

      I purchased 200 navy matte matchbooks with white script writing and the champagne flutes image. I was initially hesitant to buy them based on previous reviews, but I was able to get them at a great sale, so I said, What the heck. I was pleasantly surprised. I recommend the script font, as it was done clearly and straight. A little of the ink on the champagne flutes rubbed off a little bit on a few (I think because of how they are packaged on top of each other), but nothing that is too noticeable. I plan to include these with a plain votive as a favor, so I was excited to get a cute personalized touch at a great price. Also - the matches are good quality! The book comes with 32 matches that lit easily. My fiance and I are both happy we bought them.

      Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop personalized matchbooks:

      The price is too good to be true and here's why...I would say 85 out of the 100 books are all scratched up. I think it's from the staples and the way they are packaged but regardless, I wanted these for the outside tables on the terrace at my wedding and now I need to find another company that can provide good quality match books.

      Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop personalized matchbooks:

      The matches were all printed well and looked just as we expected - HOWEVER, we selected the red metallic print on the matte black, and the red was not really metallic AT ALL. it's simply a glossy red print. A little disappointing and did not look nearly as cool as in the preview before ordering. Still, we felt good about the price, and they're still good as a little 'extra touch'.

        I am very disappointed in the quality of the printing on these matchbooks. The printing is smudged, scratched off, and very difficult to read. I am thankful I decided not to use these for my favors, rather at my cigar bar. Just be prepared many will need to be discarded. I am surprised The Knot stands behind such poor quality.

          I'm setting these out next to votive glasses with the same personalization for guests to light during reception and take home afterwards. Are they the best quality matchbooks money can buy? In a word, no. Will they light a candle or a cigarette? You betcha. The printing is good enough for the purpose. Most of mine came out perfect. I wouldn't pay the full price for this but if you catch it on sale its a great deal for the price and its a nice touch.

                Great matchbooks. Only downside is because of the way they are packed together the black (striker) part of the matchbook rubs off on the nice designed front of another book. You have to clean them off individually as you take them out of the box.

                  I was pleasantly surprised when I received this item. Not only did it come very quickly, especially for the amount I order, (300) but they were perfectly printed on, no mistake or smudges. I had read previous reviews so I was hesitant but since there was a sale I figured I would give it a try and I am glad I did. Turned out fantastic!

                  These matchbooks were cheap and were able to be personalized to match our wedding colors, which was nice.

                  The quality isn't great regarding the use of the matches themselves (i.e. lighting the matches can be difficult). However, I wouldn't say the quality of these matchbooks is any different from other matchbooks that can be bought at a local store (and wouldn't be personalized)

                  For the price, I would say these were a good purchase, but not great.

                      These were a great deal and I really like them. However, the image on the matchbook (the love birds) is a little distorted on each one. The beak on one of the birds is a slightly cut off.

                      This is not enough to really bother me, so I am overall happy with the purchase.

My parents still have match books from their wedding that they have hung onto for 40 years. Theses favors are simple but fun. Loved them and I plan on holding on to them for a very long time.

                          I love how our personalized matchbooks came out! I am so so glad I took advantage of the sale and got them for less than a 1/3 of what they normally cost. I got 3 different sets of 100. They are going to be great for our wedding reception, functional and fun! We're going to put them in bowls on the bar, in the welcome gift bags for our out of town guests and also present them to people when we give them cigars. Some are less than perfect with smudged ink (as you can see in pic) but still a great value!

                                    The previous reviews weren't great, but I took a risk and loved what we received! The matches lit, the colors were perfect and the picture of the dice (we are getting married in a casino town) were perfect.

                                      Product quality exceeded our expectations! Price was the best online. We will be using these for a little extra something at our wedding and ordered enough for close family to have a bunch. The printing is done very well. We are completely satisfied with this product.

                                      Service and delivery comments:

                                      Customer service is incredible. Our order actually got lost in the mail. The first thing I was asked is how soon I needed them to make sure they arrived in time for our event. The order was traced and returned to sender. It was promptly rerouted to a new address to ensure delivery. Required little to no effort on my part. I will absolutely continue ordering from the knot!

                                      I love these matchbooks. After reading some of the reviews, I was skeptical of getting them, but when they went on sale, I couldn't pass this deal up. They arrived even sooner than expected and are in great shape! They are unique and fit our wedding perfectly. They also have many more matches than I thought they would!

                                          Of course everyone would like things to be cheaper! I went to several places checking prices for personalized matchbooks and The Knot had the best fit for me. I am thoroughly pleased with the product and the price I paid.

                                                      We used these as favors at the reception. We ordered a bunch extra to keep for ourselves. These were a great value on sale, and they actually do work. I got the print font because I had seen others that said the script was hard to read, and the print looked nice. I was very happy with these matchbooks!
