Process

Consultation:

The custom process begins with a complimentary consultation either in person, or by phone or email where I can get to know you, your style, and your likes and dislikes.  Prior to the initial consultation, think about what tone you want to set for your event - is it casual, elegant, modern, themed or whimsical?  During your one-on-one consultation, you get an opportunity to feel, hold, and experience custom invitation samples, as well as discuss your options, budget, style and preferences in detail. If you have it, bring in your inspiration… magazines, fabric, photos, family heirlooms… whatever inspires you.  It is recommended that wedding invitations be mailed 6-8 weeks prior to the event date.  Therefore it is best to schedule your first consultation 12 weeks prior to the event.  Exceptions can be made and sometimes require a nominal rush service fee.

 

Pricing:

Pricing is as individual as your custom order. Because each order is custom made for my clients, pricing depends on design style, quantity, selected materials, and the items within your ensemble. I will provide you with specific pricing information with your designs in mind during your appointment.  But just to give you an idea, custom invitations start around $2.50, but can be as low as $1.30.  The custom invitations generally average between $4-$7 depending upon style, paper and size.

 

Design:

Once I receive your 50% deposit, We will work together to create your perfect invitation design. Before we begin, send your invitation text or ask me for help with your invitation wording. Also check out wedding invitation etiquette. You will need to provide directions and other information that you want included.  An email will be sent with attachments including drafts of each insert.  Printing will begin only after your final "ok" has been given.  I want your invitations to be exactly what you want, therefore, we accept as many revisions as necessary.   Please keep in mind, however, the more revisions, the longer the design process takes.  The design process usually takes 2-4 weeks, although it can be quicker.

 

Final Proof:

After all pieces have been designed, I will send a final proof.  This is the time when you will look the proofs over VERY CAREFULLY for any spelling errors or typos and correct information (times, addresses etc).  Invitations can be printed in either flat print or thermography.  Flat print is by far the most popular due to the quick turnaround and lower cost.  At this point, the invitations will be printed and assembled.  I will email or call you when your invitation ensemble is finished.

 

Due to the personalized nature of these products, all sales are final.

 

Production:

Standard printing production time is 2 – 4 weeks
