Your save the dates and invitations set the tone for your wedding
The paper you select to send to your guests gives them a preview of what to expect of your wedding. Small nuances in etiquette, paper type, printing method and assembly indicate who is hosting, if your ceremony will be religious or held in a place of worship, the formality of dress, and overall feel.
When working with Design House of Moira, you’re selecting a company with over a decade of experience in the wedding industry. We vow to guide you along the design process, selecting papers, creating art and managing printing to best serve your event.
WORKING WITH US
If you would like to work with us, please fill out our contact page and submit your wedding including any design notes you would like us to know and if you have a preference for printing method. If you are unsure which printing is best for you, we’d be more than happy to help you select based on your overall aesthetic and budget. During business hours, we usually will get back to you with any specific questions regarding your event within a day. Once we know your budget and quantity, we create a proposal for your project and have that over to you within a day.
Once we have your basic information, including quantity and printing type, we will move to a contract to secure our services and design. A deposit of 30-50% (depending on the scope of the project) of your estimated design cost from the proposed quote will be due with the signing of the contract.
Following the signing of the contract, we will create a sketch to map out our ideas for all the pieces we have planned for you. The sketch is a very integral part of our design process, and from this initial sketch is how we plan out your artwork, custom lettering and font development, paper types and assembly details. The beauty of a custom order is the opportunity to create one of a kind designs where every detail is based off something that has meaning specific to you.
In the next step, you'll receive a digital proof with your completed design layouts, complete with your custom calligraphy, artwork, and event details. Our dedication to creating a product that you absolutely love means that you can have as many rounds of proofing as is necessary, with the acknowledgment that we plan for about three rounds of proofs with our initial timeline estimates. Additional proofs can add 1-2 weeks to your timeline, so plan accordingly. Final proofs must be signed off for approval before production, checking the spelling, ink colors, printing descriptions, etc.
Following the printers, we then address all your invitations, assemble, stamp and stuff all your envelopes. Once this is all done, final payment will be due before your pieces are mailed.
Why choose us
All of our designs are custom and include unlimited artwork and calligraphy, as well as full production, including sourcing materials best suited for your design and budget, printing, all assembly, stuffing, applying postage and mailing. We mail from the historic Benjamin Franklin Post Office here in Philadelphia where your invitations will be hand canceled with Benjamin Franklins signature (which means your envelopes aren't processed through the machines that smash the poor things).
Our average wedding invitation suite includes an invitation (of course) and envelope, reply card and envelope, reception card, overlay (we love printing on gorgeous silky smooth vellum), and personalized assembly details like custom wax seals or hand dyed ribbon. All our envelopes are lined with custom envelope liners to match your suite and printed with our signature style of your artwork tumbling down the back with your return address.
