being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
I recommend the consult be 6-8 months before your wedding day. The consult may over the phone, via email or in person if you live locally. We'll talk about your likes and dislikes and everything from papers to colors, fonts to graphics, number of pieces and more. After the consult, I will develop a quote based upon our discussions for your approval. Custom design pricing is as individual as the designs themselves. Typically, custom save the dates average $2-$5, custom invitations average $8-$15, and our programs & reception items average from $4-$8. A quote will be developed once an initial consultation has been done to determine your exact needs. Upon acceptance, I will send a contract which will detail due dates for each of us. I will require a 50% deposit for the order based on the quote.
I will start designing about 4-6 months before your wedding. All of your wording for the invitation and inserts should be finalized before I begin the design process. I am available to help with wording if need be. I'll take everything we discussed from the consultation into consideration and create 2 designs of an invitation only for you to review. After you provide initial feedback on which design you prefer, I will design the remaining pieces discussed at our consultation. During the design process, I'll send you proofs in PDF format. You should review them carefully and with anyone who may be involved in the decision making process. Proofing is your responsibility and once you approve the final proof in writing, the outstanding balance will be due.
The production process takes 4-6 weeks from when you sign the final proof and I receive payment. I'll place the complete order, have them printed and assemble any pieces if needed. You can pick up the finished product at my home studio or I can ship it to you.
It is customary to mail wedding invitations 6-8 weeks before the wedding date. You may want to mail as early as 10-12 weeks ahead
for a destination wedding. Rush orders can possibly be accommodated, so please inquire and I will let you know if I can be of help to you.
