— Process —
We are quite picky about the quality of products we work with and use only high quality paper types to ensure your suite not only looks and feels beautiful, but stands the test of time. All our wedding invitation suites are designed specifically for each client, featuring one of a kind artwork and calligraphy all done by hand and designed specifically for each bride.
Just like your relationship probably did, our creative process begins with getting to know each other. Once you've contacted us, we'd like to get to know more about who you are, what your personal style is like, and how you envision that coming together in your wedding details. The more details you can give us, the better! Once we have a good idea of the direction in which you'd like to go, we'll put together a proposed quote for you based on the printing and materials we think will best fit your needs. If you'd like to read more about some of the printing options we offer, head over here.
Once you have your little magpie heart set on us, we will move to a contract to detail all the goodies we will design with you within an agreed upon timeline. A deposit of 50% of your estimated design cost from the proposed quote will be due with the signing of the contract.
Following the signing of the contract, you'll receive a sketch to map out our ideas for all the pieces we have planned for you and make sure we're on the same page. 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. With the sketch nailed down, we can finally begin creating your personalized artwork and calligraphy!
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 you want, with the acknowledgment that we plan for about two 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 shipped.
