Our Custom Design Process
Your invitation should be as unique as you are so I think every project should begin with a conversation. Come sit with me or have a phone/video conversation so that we can discuss how to translate your love story into an inspirational piece.
The process starts with a complimentary consultation either in person or by phone in which we get to know you and learn all about your event! This is your opportunity to review our existing designs and discuss your own style and ideas.
Following your consultation you will be provided with an Estimate followed by a link to a detailed Invoice/Contract. The design phase will then start once we receive the 50% deposit, and your text.
For clients who choose a design from our online portfolio, this part involves seeing your chosen design come to life with your colors, papers, font selections and embellishments. Clients requiring a new custom design will require a more involved collaboration. Along the way we will utilize our design expertise as we guide you to the best materials and elements to achieve the optimal look for your invitation suite. Concepts will be presented for your review via pdf and emailed photos before revising the design into the final version. Depending on the complexity of your order, its pieces, materials and parts, it will be ready in 4-8 weeks. Rush ordering is also available for an additional fee.
Before printing begins, you will be e-mailed an electronic Final Digital Proof (color Adobe PDF file) to review for typos, grammar, spelling, punctuation and accuracy of your information. Upon your approval, the files will be sent to the printer.
PRINTING & PRODUCTION
Once the pieces are received by us from the printer then production/assembly will begin. The final payment is due at this time.
We offer various shipping options including United States Postal Service, Fedex, UPS as well as local pickup for local clients. All invitations are meticulously hand-checked before they are shipped out to make sure each and every piece is perfectly crafted.
