I liked that you could personalize the matchbox with your desired color, and the font in the desired color and type. They look very cute. I was disappointed with the quality of the font print on the matchboxes. Some looked great, some had the font overdone and letters were not clearly defined, and others had missing "ink" so the letters were not complete. I've found that with the overdone ones, I can use my nail to scratch off the extra "ink" to make the font look better. Overall, they are okay for what I paid and their purpose. I plan to pair them with some candles we will give out as favors. No way would I buy these matchboxes at full price. And the sale price I paid was a great deal as compared to other places I found online.

Turned out great!

Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop personalized matchboxes:
I was hesitant after reading some of the reviews but mine turned out great! I stayed away from the foil based on other reviews and I'm really glad I did. Only reason they didn't get five stars is the quality/sturdiness of the actual box itself. Its just ok, but for the price I paid, I'm happy!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Don't waste your money
from Boston, Ma
I bought this with caution (only purchasing half of what i needed) because the reviews were so mixed...When the package came I was so disappointed, they look awful!!! The writing is not center or off to one side, the boxes are all worn, and they look very cheap....Please note I ordered black boxes with white writing after reading the reviews about the foil...Don't waste you money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
We loved them!

We ordered chocolate colored matchboxes with kiwi foil. We received them (all 100) in good condition. They look great! We are excited to give them out as favors along with homemade star shaped tea lights.

We love how these matches turned out!
By beach bridezilla
I ordered 200 of these for our beach wedding. For both orders I used the black matchbox and the foil fonts, one with kiwi and one with magenta which turned out stunning. The personalization on all 200 of them turned out great! (and we are very picky people)

Our matches turned out perfect! I was expecting them to be cheap matches, but they light right away and actually burst into a big flame! They are better quality matches than the typical strike on box matches you buy from a store. I loved that they could be personalized too. We had purple birds and text with green boxes to match our wedding colors. Everything really loved them. We used sparklers during our send-off too, so they were functional during the wedding as well as a great keepsake for our guests. I definitely recommend these to anyone wanting to use matches for their wedding. Absolutely superb!

cheaply made and disappointing
I loved these right out of the box. However, two days after the wedding, the ones I had kept for myself looked "worn out" as the printing/finish was rubbing off of the box. Look elsewhere.
Great product and nicely designed!

About Me Groom
Love the product but didn't arrve until weeks after the wedding and I ordered far in advance so never got to give to my guests. Now I have a lot of matchbooks! So my advice order atleast three months before wedding instead of 2. I would have given 5 stars if they were available for the wedding
from Chicago, il
Everything was just like I viewed online.Items rec'd when I thought and looked the way I thought it would.
from Atlanta, GA
Great favor for my wedding. Colors matched my theme perfectly. Matchboxes are not the most expensive but will do the job. Wedding guest really just like the gesture and these will work for that! I recommend them for sure.
from Chandler, AZ
The matches were the perfect color to go with the wedding colors. Everyone loved them! High quality and vey professional looking and great price. The turn around time was fantastic. Thank you for such a great addition to the wedding decorations. Will use you company again.
I loved them. Some were scratched a little from rubbing during shipping, but really they were nice quality and a great price. Our wedding was a rustic, outdoor wedding so we did not care one bit if some were scratched up. To be fair there were only a few scratched and we ordered 200. So overall it is a great product, and it's fun to have them personalized. We did the black with grey font, and had matching cocktail napkins and loved it!
Good product at a good value
from Philadelphia, PA
Really cute matchbooks at a great price. I liked all the color options so you can really make it fit your event.
By Mother of the bride
from Chicago, IL
Our matchboxes turned out beautifully - we used the purple ink on white boxes; match boxes were in clear glass canister by the door of the reception spot and every last one was taken. A nice little keepsake that is useful, and great price.

Do Judge a book by its cover.
By Sam the Planner
from Powhatan, VA USA
I was initially excited about ordering this product.The designs they offered were a good match for my daughter's wedding theme. The price was competitive, and I had the option to personalize.When the product arrived -- I was very disappointed! The printing was inconsistent & there were bubbles that I could not rub out that were a visual distraction as it was prominent on the printed side. I was embarrassed to have these on display at my daughter's wedding.I put them at the back of the venue where the cigar bar was.At least the actual "matches" were functional.

Super cute (and inexpensive) way to personalize! These were placed at each of our bars as well as on the outdoor patio. Lots of compliments and not many left after the reception.
One week away.. and I'm disappointed
By Felecia the faithful
from Irvington, NJ
I read all the comments from other users and felt it was still a safe choice. However, perhaps the white background with black writing wasn't the best choice. You see all these smudges, water marks or film marks around the inked writing. I'm one week away from my wedding and would advise that you check any orders immediately so that they can rectify any issues you have in a timely manner.

I just received our personalized matched in the mail, and I absolutely adore them! As others had suggested, I did not go for the foil font, and the matte font looks sharp! The shipping was fast, the boxes are sturdy, and the font/image are SO cute! Got these while they were on sale, so I feel like they were a steal! So excited to put these in a cute bowl on each of our bars for the cigars!!

Matchboxes with scuffs
from Doylestown, OH
We just received our matchboxes in the mail today! We ordered two different color boxes- one was ivory (matte) and the other was silver which was a little shinier. The ivory looks really nice and better quality than the silver! I think it's because the silver has a sheen to it, but there are noticeable scuffs over every single one of them! If you order these- do not order any of the metallic colors for the box!!
Just what I wanted!
from Sacramento, ca
My matchboxes arrived 4 days after I ordered them!I was surprised at how fast they came. They look exactly like what they look like online and the orange foil on the white looks sharp. I chose the same icon for the matchbooks as the napkins I ordered and think they will be great for the bar. I have not tested out the matches themselves, but the strike paper on the side looks a little thin...however, I think these are great for what they are!
Not bad at all
By Roman M
from Brooklyn, NY
Items came as described and as expected. I cannot speak for all experiences but my were pleasant. I would recommend these matchboxes to others. Definitely buy with confidence, but WELL in advance.
from Dallas, Tx
We ordered black matchbooks with the violet foil lettering with "the perfect match" design on them. They came out great. No complaints here.
Received the matches this week and they are pretty bad quality. There are few out of a hundred that a not scratched and the image is not messed up. I understand that they are gold and that is easily scratched but common!!!!! Wedding is in 7 days, and now I have to look for another favor.
Very Disappointing Purchase
from Lincoln, NE
I just received my order of personalized match boxes in the mail, and I am very unhappy with them. I knew they wouldn't be fantastic for the price that I was paying, but I didn't expect them to be of such poor quality either. The writing and images on the cover of the match books are crooked, and the colors are incredibly muddled. They look extremely tacky, and I don't know if I can bring myself to put these out at our wedding reception. I'm not usually this picky when it comes to things like this, but these match books are truly terrible, and I feel like I just wasted a lot of money that could have gone towards something else.

Perfect little extra
from Turnersville, NJ
I bought 100 matchbooks as a little extra to have at the reception and to keep a few for us as a memento. We got the navy box with the toasting flutes design and our names and date in the silver foil. Our wedding colors are grey, yellow, and navy so they coordinate with that, and I happened to have the same toasting flutes design on my save the dates so it went perfectly. The matchboxes are good quality, I was prompted to get them when they went on big sale price and I'm so glad I did!

Matches for sparklers
from Raleigh NC
I was very pleased with how my matchbox favors turned out. They came very quick and look perfect. GREAT value and wonderful service.
Turned Out Great
I bought these when they were on a great sale. I just got them in the mail on Friday and they turned out great! I am going to be useing them along with tealight candles for my favors. They are perfect.
Service and delivery comments:
I am a little upset about how long they took to get to me. I had ordered them on 09/09/11 and on 09/21/11 I decided to e-mail them because I had not seen any e-mail saying they had shipped. I got a response on that Saturday saying my order would be shipped on Monday and would upgrade my order to 3 day shipping. I am still not sure why in the first place it took so long but they resolved my problem.
great quality, great price
from Memphis, TN
I couldn't decide between 2 different styles so I ordered them both (perfect match and lovebirds) in reversed colors (one with cream background and metallic green copy and one with green background and silver copy), and I couldn't be more pleased with them. The only way to make these perfect would be to accommodate a custom design (engagement picture or specific font style/PMS colors).

Not Worth the Money
By Frustrated Bride
from North Shore, MA
[...] the personalization almost looked as it was double stamped on MORE THAN half of the matches, therefore not being legible. Don't waste your money on these favors.
