the Custom Design Process
Best Wishes! You're engaged!
I can't wait to chat with you about your wedding suite! Over the next several months things are going to be busy with appointments, decision making, and ALL the details! But when it comes to your invitations, you won't have to worry about a thing. I've got you covered!
When you're ready, click the button below to get started. It will take you through an online inquiry form that requests information about you, your significant other, your wedding, and your ideas. From there, I'll put together a package and quote for your specific needs and schedule a call with you to go over the details and any questions you might have.
Step 1: Consultation & Booking
The first step is to submit an inquiry form - which you can do by clicking the above button. Once I receive your form, I will review all of the information provided and create a proposal to suit your needs. I will also schedule a call to review all of the information and answer any questions you might have.
Then you'll need to approve the proposal and submit your deposit to secure your booking. I require a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of booking. I understand that custom wedding invitations are a big investment, so payment plans are also available.
Step 2: Design
The second step is the best part... the design of your wedding stationery! We'll start with a mood board to ensure that I have captured the look, feel and styling that you envision. Next, we'll move on to the initial sketches (typically 3-4 options) that you'll be able to review and provide feedback on before we move to the proofing stage.
Once you've selected a direction, I'll create your first proof that will contain all the details - including any lettering, illustrations, and design elements. We'll also discuss all the printing options. Once again, you'll be able to review and provide feedback. You will be allowed four free rounds of revisions. If additional changes are needed, they will be charged on an hourly basis.
The final step of this process will be an official approval form that you will need to review along with the final design. Once you have reviewed all the details and signed off on the approval form, I will begin the printing process.
Step 3: Printing & Mailing
The third step is the printing process. Upon approval and sign-off of your final design, I will send your pieces to print. The printed pieces will then come to me so that I can review and ensure that they are perfect! Your prints will be sent to you for mailing or I can also handle assembly, addressing, and mailing if you prefer.
If you have elected to have me handle the mailing of your invitations, you will be required to submit a detailed excel document of your guest list by a given date. I will provide an excel template for you to use. Your assembled invitations will then be delivered with care to the USPS post office for mailing.
