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.

After I ordered I found out these were on backorder for a while, and it turned out to be longer than I was originally told, but luckily I had ordered in plenty of time for my wedding. We haven't tested out the actual matches yet so I can't speak to how well they actually work, but as far as appearance goes they look great! We got the gold background with teal foil & they're perfect! No complaints on the printing quality & the design we chose is very pretty & fits our theme & colors. And for the price, definitely can't complain. We'll put these out on the bar & hand out during our sparkler exit.
Just as good as Etsy for a fraction $

High quality matchbooks with beautiful printing
from Oklahoma City, OK
I ordered black & white matchbooks for my daughter's reception. I was satisfied with how they came out, however, I wish I had the options to upgrade the quality. They only had matte black but if they had shiny black, it would be more refined.

Excellent, fast delivery
Very happy :)
Very happy with product....delivered as promised and packaged well.
Very well made and cute!

I was nervous to order the match books after reading some of the reviews. However, mine looked great and were very cute. The lettering was done well. A few reviews said that the lettering came off, mine wouldn't come off if you tried. The match itself is of good quality as well.

I really like the way the colors came out and the foil lettering adds a nice touch.

Arrived fast, great price
You get what you pay for!
from Cincinnati, OH
I read some not-so-good reviews before ordering this product, but decided to go ahead and order anyways consider how cheap it would be. The matches are very cute and simple, but I am glad that I paid a sale price and not full price. Worth it if you are on a wedding budget or didn't plan to spend a ton of money on favors. The printing on the matches can be scratched off, but they match my theme and will look great on the reception tables!
I was a bit wary after reading some reviews, but I'm glad I ignored them. Luckily, too, my fiance and I know a bit about printing and know how fickle metalic and foil stamping/printing can be, so we just made sure to avoid those things (sounds like most people's problems revolve around these). And they turned out perfect! Excellent value.The script font turned out better than some people mentioned. They're adorable and will make great little keepsakes at our wedding (with the double bonus of using them to light sparklers for the exit). They also strike on the first try--gotta love that. :)

I was nervous about ordering these because of a few bad reviews I read, but I am very glad I did! They turned out beautiful. The colors are vibrant and the words weren't smeared. We ordered 400 for our October wedding.
Fun Addition To The Wedding
By Mama Sandy
Our guests got a big kick out of matches. So many people use just lighters now and everyone kept saying how good it would be to have a book of matches in "the drawer" at home! They are decent quality and nicely made. I would recommend them at your wedding or party!
from Santa Fe, NM
I really enjoyed having these for my wedding! They were a great addition to our cigar bar. The colors were a little but different than what I thought they would be, but they still fit our theme. Delivery was great.. They arrived in no time at all. Overall, I would recommend getting these.. Can't beat the price!
from Kansas City
Matchbooks made a fun addition to wedding- nice keepsake for guests.
We bought these match books for our sparkler send-off. They matched our theme and were a fun addition to the wedding.
Great quality and excellent print!
By Mrs. W
I loved the matchbooks that I order, they have good quality printing and they would look great as a wedding detail. Also the delivery was really fast. :)
Very happy with these matches!
from Chicago, IL
I liked the idea of matches for a favor because I love everything old school. I bought them while on sale. When I received them, I was very pleased overall. Sure, there's an imperfection here and there, but nothing major at all. They're great for the price! I definitely recommend these!

I ordered these matches for my wedding. We are doing a Luau theme. I am going to place a matchbook on each table of the reception hall so our guests can light the candles on the tables. I picked the palm trees and kissing fish to go with our theme. They are absolutely beautiful. I am so happy right now. My wedding is scheduled for Aug. 9th 2014. I looked at each matchbox and all of them are perfect. I even pulled one out for my own use and lit a match. It lit on the first strike. The quality is exceptional!! My fiance and I have been doing all of the planning and purchasing items for our grand day. The knot made life easier by providing a great product. We received it in the mail in a timely fashion as well. I highly recommend this product. Thank you!!!
Just What I wanted!
By Codman Estate Bride
from Bedford, MA
I was very hesitant when I ordered these matches. I read and re-read everyone's reviews and they scared me. But I'm so excited that I decided to just GO FOR IT! I just got them in the mail today and they are just as they looked in the picture! Absolutely perfect! I'm going to be attaching one match book to each sparkler for my exit ceremony from the rehearsal dinner. I can't wait!

Okay for the sale price
By Bride to be
from Wausau, WI
We ordered 200 of these for favors at our wedding. I'm glad they were on sale and we got free shipping because they aren't worth any more than the sale price. One half of our matches turned out good but the ink easily wipes off. The second half is so poorly done that we can't even read our personalizatoin. Overall, we are dissapointed with the outcome of these.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We are so sorry that you received some of your matches in poor condition. We don't see that you have contacted us, please contact us and we will love to speak to you in regards to some options.
Great for what we wanted
We were looking for matches that were inexpensive just to have as a bonus wedding thank you to set out on tables. These went way on sale and so we ordered 200 white with blue writing. They are perfect for what we were looking for. I would say I probably wouldn't pay full price for these as they are screen printed on and not embossed like some more expensive sites would be. But they are exactly what we expected and wanted! Also, the communiction and timeliness of the shipping through this site is great!

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.
Very disappointed in this product
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.
Merchant response: We really hope you can give us a call and let's get another set out to you so they arrive in great condition. We are very sorry to hear this is how yours were received indeed. 1.800.390.9784

I was so excited to get these but after looking through them I was disappointed to find that most are smudged making them hard to read.
Metalic print wasn't really metalic
from Homewood, IL
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'.

Poor Printing Quality
from New Jersey
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.

from Cleveland, OH
I ordered 200 matchbooks with two different designs for my daughter's wedding. We left them out at the bar and fortunately, I saved a few for the bride and groom, because they were all picked up by guests!
Perfect for the price
By Ms Badger 16
from Nashwauk, MN
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.
