PROCESS . HOW DOES THIS ALL WORK?

made with love
whether you know exactly what you are looking for or have a slew of half-baked ideas, i am happy to collaborate with you. we’ll work together from start to finish, + i’ll serve as your one-stop-shop director of design, production, + all things customer service. all designs are created soup-to-nuts for the client: color, paper stock, wording, font choice, theme, you name it. each piece is digitally printed + put together by hand + always made with love. here’s an outline of what you can expect:

CONSULTATION . DREAM IT UP

bring your inspiration – photos of your dress, details of your venue, color scheme, a collection of things-you-like related to the big day or honoree. feel free to send screenshots or web links in advance. we’ll meet at my studio, where I can share samples of my past work with you, do some brainstorming, + discuss budget, size of your order, timeline + any other intangibles.

SAMPLE TIME . LET’S GET TACTILE

based on our conversation, i’ll put together a free sample for you that you will come to review. with this as a starting point, we’ll discuss what you like +/or dislike about, refining choices about color, texture, paper choice, + design.

REVISIONS . TWEAKING BY TELECOMMUTING

by email, I’ll send you proofs of the revised invitation. this is when the text and wording gets finalized. If you decide to do a full stationery suite – seating cards, menus, favors, etc. – we’ll typically begin this process by email, using your invitation as a jumping off point.

FINAL PROOF . THE OFFICIAL THUMBS UP

time to see the product of your vision, creative collaboration, + feedback. we’ll meet in-person + you’ll review the physical proof in all its glory, examining the layout and text one last time. we’ll also finalize the number of items you’ll need printed, + calculate the deposit due. with your approval on the contract + the final proof, it’s onward ho to production.

PRODUCTION . SIGN, SEALED, DELIVERED—THEY’RE YOURS

each piece is digitally printed + put together by hand. the icing on the cake? i’ll even uniformly stuff each envelope, seal + stamp them. all that’s left for you to do is to drop them off at the post office!

PRICING . THE WHOLE CABOODLE

invitations are priced according to the number of sets. pricing depends on how complex your invitation will be. working from a budget helps + i can generally stick to any budget given to me. each set includes the following: invitation envelope complete with printed mailing + return addresses, invitation, insert card with additional event details, response card, + response card envelope with address printed on it. by your request + at no extra charge, envelopes can be adorned with custom designed stamps, if you choose. final payment is due upon receipt of your one-of-a-kind paper goods.
