WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

We do it all, from the Save the Date Cards to the Thank You Notes and everything in between, including menus, programs, place cards, favors, etc. and that takes time! We like to start the process at least six months before your wedding date to accommodate the time required for designing and revising your invitation suite, as well as printing, assembling, addressing and sending your invitations to your guests. Our pricing for a typical order of 100 wedding invitation suites, including the invitation and envelope, reply card and envelope and reception card, begins at $1,300. This price and any quote you receive will always include not only your printed goods but all of the assembly required. You will never tie a knot or line an envelope!  Please note that we do not copy anyone's work so please do not ask to recreate another designer's invitations.

1. THE CONSULTATION

The first step in beginning your custom design is a consultation by email, phone or in person (by appointment only). In this initial meeting we will discuss your ideas for your wedding and find out more about your personal style in order to create a unique, custom design to accurately reflect you and your wedding. Tell us what you love and what you can't live without! Ribbons, pockets, letterpress, the perfect shade of lavender, whatever it is, we want to know. Swatches from bridesmaids’ dresses or pictures of your gown and venue help us to see the story you are trying to tell with your wedding, so please don't be shy.


At this stage, we will also discuss your expectations for invitations and your budget.   Our goal is to give you what you want at a cost you feel comfortable with; all the designs presented to you in the next phase of the process will be within your given budget. At this stage we also ask that you sign a digital contract and fulfill our deposit of $200 which will apply to the balance.  No samples or designs will be created until both of these items are completed. We only work on a limited number of weddings at any given time in order to ensure every client gets the most attention and care possible; a contract reserving our service is a must!

2. DESIGN

Following the receipt of your deposit and signed agreement we will send you a link to submit the wording for your invitation suite. We are here to assist you through the process including any questions you may have regarding etiquette, reply timelines, etc. We have a wealth of knowledge in this arena backed by years of experience, so please do not hesitate to ask! This is not the stage for changing the date and time or wording on your invitation. We ask that you have all of the details sorted before sending us your text.

Upon receipt of your wording we will create a design for your suite based on our consultation that will be emailed to you for review. From here we will make adjustments and changes at your request . We will then email you a proof for final approval with final pricing. You are entitled to three rounds of changes. After the fourth round of changes, a $100 fee will be billed for each additional round of changes.

3. PRICING, APPROVAL, PRINTING

Pricing will be finalized now that the design is complete. Final pricing can not be determined accurately before this point due to variables including material, required elements, shape, accessories, assembly fees and changes in quantity. Rush orders are billed accordingly so please book and begin the design process at least six months before your event. You will be sent formal proofs for your approval, this is not the time to change your text, it is the time for proofing grammar and spelling. Changes to text  during this stage are subject to additional fees to be determined at the time of request. You will be sent final proofs, a final agreement to approve the proofs and pricing as well as your final invoice. The initial deposit of $200 will be deducted from your total. No printing will begin until payment has been received. We accept check and credit card payments.

Printing, assembly and shipping can take four to six weeks, so please plan accordingly. 

4. ASSEMBLY & SHIPPING

All of our designs are professionally printed with the utmost attention to detail. After printing is complete, we will painstakingly assemble your invitations, if required, and package your items to be shipped via USPS unless otherwise requested. Shipping may be billed separately for some orders, we will notify you if that is the case.

TIMING

Please note that due to the handcrafting involved in all of our designs, the entire design process from consultation to finished product can take at least SIX MONTHS for many of our designs. This also means that we can only accept a certain number of orders at a time to ensure each client receives as much attention as possible.

CO-ORDINATINGand Day of ITEMS

To tie it all together we also design seating charts, place cards, favor tags and stickers, ceremony programs, menus, table numbers, thank you cards and return address stickers to coordinate with your invitations. If you need it, we can certainly do it. the only limit is your imagination....and then ours takes over! 

We offer guest addressing services with pricing beginning at $2 per envelope. Please ask us for more details.
