We specialize in custom wedding invitations. What does this mean exactly? It means we love paper, particularly wedding paper.
From save the dates to one-of-a-kind monograms, we help you create a suite that embodies not only your wedding but the love you have for one another.
We don’t believe that one design fits every client, so when we say “custom” we really mean it. Our designs are tailored to you – because your invitations should be as unique as your wedding day.
Feeling overwhelmed and not sure where you need to start? Don’t worry – we’ll be your spirit guide through the wondrous world of paper, starting with this client guide. Grab a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine) and take a look at everything we have to offer for your wedding paper needs.
Every custom experience begins with a conversation - in person, over the phone or Google Hangout / Skype / FaceTime. Fill out our contact form and we’ll schedule a time to chat.
After the initial consultation, we’ll follow these easy steps until we’re finished!
CUSTOM PRICING GUIDE
A detailed pricing guide arrives to your inbox with information on our process, print methods, and detailed pricing for everything we discussed during your initial consultation. You’ll be prompted to make your selections from within this pricing guide so we know what to include in your final project proposal.
PROPOSAL + CONTRACT
Once you have chosen the items from the pricing guide to include in your order, we’ll send a New Client Package, which includes your final proposal, our contract with the option to sign electronically, and a payment link for the non-refundable 50% retainer. Then, we’re ready to get designing!
We use HoneyBook to manage your project from start to finish - but don't worry, everything arrives to you via your email inbox! We also have a Client Portal, which allows you to view past emails and send us new messages, view proofs and important documents, as well as make payments.
Your initial design proof arrives via email 7-10 business days after we recieve your PROJECT Copy Request Form. All proofs are sent electronically in .pdf format. For wedding invitations, we’ll finalize your invitation design before moving on to create the full suite.
Before going to print, we’ll send a request for final approval to get the “all clear” from you that all names, locations, dates, times, etc. are correct. Once the final proof is approved and invoice is paid in full, your designs move into production.
Changes requested after your designs move into production cannot be guaranteed and may result in a re-printing costs.
Production turnaround depends on the print method. Digital printing takes 1 - 2 weeks and letterpress + foil take 3-4 weeks.
Don’t forget to allow time to address your invitations once they are printed. If we're handling the addressing for you, we'll be sure to take this into consideration for due dates during the proofing stage. Calligraphy takes time - about 3-5 business days per 50 envelopes!
Once complete, we’ll quality check everything from printing to calligraphy before shipment. All projects are shipped via UPS (or USPS for PO / FPO / APO Boxes).
Once you receive your invitations, take a complete suite to your local post office to have them weighed and measured to obtain the correct postage. Most wedding invitations suites require more than just one Forever stamp, so it’s important to confirm the amount of postage required to get these to your guests. Don’t forget a stamp for your RSVP envelopes as well!
While each project is different, we recommend the following timeline for our custom clients.
When selecting your suite pieces, consider what information you need to share with guests. Do you need a custom map? What about a welcome party invitation? The following pages demonstrate the most popular combinations, but feel free to mix and match to fit your specific needs.
Our design team will walk you through the available options during your initial consultation.
The Classic Suite
You want just what you need - no extra frills required!
The Signature Suite
When you want all the pretties - don’t worry we do too!
We are uncompromising when it comes to quality. We can’t help it. Because of this our printing partners are the best in the nation and we proudly print everything right here in the USA.
Full disclosure: we are paper nerds, which is why we offer the following options for printing
A flat printing method allowing for unlimited color choices and large washes of color on white or light colored paper.
Letterpress printing is a 550 year old process of printmaking that yields remarkable type and image results. A labor intensive process that involves a cast iron machine that literally presses your design into paper. It’s pretty rad!
Foil printing is done on a letterpress with a heating element, which transfers the foil to your paper. Foil is great for covering dark papers with light foil colors. It also adds some amazing shines and shimmers. We’re huge fans!
Since our work is all custom and each client project is dierent, our pricing is based on your specific paper needs. I know, I know, you just want to find out something rather than nothing at all, so we’ve put together some starting prices below based on the different print methods we offer.
