Invitation Design Process
This helps me to get a sense of your design style & interests. I will email you within 24 business hours of receiving your questionnaire to discuss any questions that either of us might have and to set up your consultation date. I encourage you to share any pictures, ideas and color swatches that you may have collected. You will have the opportunity to view samples of my work, choose colors, paper and embellishments. We will brainstorm ideas and establish a style that best suits your needs. If you are unable to meet in person, we can communicate by phone or email.
I will create a detailed design that pulls inspiration from images that represent the feel and aesthetic of your invitation suite and describes ways incorporate those design details into your printed pieces. Your invitation design samples will be presented to you at your complimentary consultation.
We will either have an in-person or virtual coffee date to discuss what you do and don’t love about your invitation design and sample.
During the consultation you will be presented a price proposal and invitation contract.
Estimate and Deposit
Detailed pricing estimate (including design and materials) presented at the consultation. If you decide to proceed, a contract and timeline will be created. The contract must be signed and returned with a non-refundable 50% deposit. Upon receipt of your contract and deposit, you are booked for the design and execution of your order. Please note that I do not reserve any dates or purchase invitation material before a deposit is received. If order is needed within a 4 – 5 week turnaround it is considered rush and full payment will be due at the time of the order
**project may incur a rush charge and depends on my production schedule**
Other Wedding Items
Design for wedding day items such as programs, place cards, table number, etc. will generally take place in the months and weeks leading up to your wedding after we have established your final invitation design. All other invitations, announcements and stationery are generally designed and created within a month or two of when you would like to receive them. Please contact me in advance to ensure my availability.
Approval and Production
A final proof will be provided for your approval. It is your responsibility to review that every detail is correct, including spelling, grammar and punctuation. After your final approval is received materials are ordered and the project goes into production. At this time no further changes can be made and quantities cannot be decreased.
As the project is finished, I will contact you to schedule a pick up time or make arrangements for shipping your order. I will send you a final invoice that includes tax and shipping at the completion of each project. Final payments are due prior to shipping or at the time of pick-up.
Save the dates should be mailed six to eight months before the wedding.
Invitations should be mailed One to Two months before Your wedding.
Your RSVP return date should be set for about a month before the wedding to
make sure you have enough time to round up last minute RSVP's.
Production time takes about 3 to 4 weeks after proof approval.
Cushion your quantity by 10-15% more than likely your guest list will
grow and you will want to keep a copy for yourself!
There is a rush option available if you are in a bind, Please inquire.
