Our Design Process
We’re so glad you’re here, and we’d love to play a part in designing your dream wedding invitations! To start the process, please complete the questionnaire on our “Contact” page. This will provide us with details about your wedding day and stationery needs.
We’ll start off by sending you a custom quote & timeline, based on the details you’ve provided. This will break down the total investment for your custom paperie. (No stress – this is simply for quoting purposes! This proposal can change, based on any design decisions you choose to make during the proofing process.)
If the proposal is inline with your projected budget, we’re happy to offer you a complimentary consultation to discuss papers, printing, and other options available. This can be conducted in-person or via phone.
To begin the custom design process, a signed contract and $150 retainer fee will reserve your spot on our design/production calendar. We’ll also have you complete our invitation questionnaire, to obtain the necessary information to customize your pieces.
We’ll begin by providing you a small batch of custom designs, based on all of the details you’ve provided (delivered in PDF format). Once you’ve received and reviewed your first round of designs, we’ll simply work with you via email until we have a perfect & print-ready invitation suite! Based on your feedback and response times, the proofing process can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks.
Once you’ve finalized your proofs, you’ll submit a signed production contract and payment of full balance due for invitations only (wedding day items will be designed & invoiced at a later date). You are responsible for ensuring all spelling, colors and event details are accurate on your digital proofs. Once we have both the contract & payment on file, production officially begins on your custom invites.
Production can take approximately 4-8 weeks, depending on the intricacy of your order.
When your order is finished printing, we’ll do a brief quality check of all invitation pieces. Then, we’ll package everything and prep the order to ship to you! All shipments are fully insured - though clients are responsible for tracking and delivery acceptance, once the items are in transit.
Once you’ve sealed and mailed out your invitations, we’ll check back in with you 3 months before wedding day to begin designing your day-of elements. However, if you’d like to start this process sooner, we’re happy to do so!
