When should I order my wedding stationery!
The custom design process takes roughly 4 weeks for design and 3-6 weeks for printing (depending on the printing method chosen). I recommend ordering your Invitations 6-8 months before the event, with save the dates being ordered 9-12 moths before the wedding. If you are as excited as I am you won’t want to wait another moment to get started! ADD IN TIM
How much should I expect to budget?
There are so many variables with custom design, such as printing techniques (letterpress vs flat printing) paper choices (double thick or perhaps a colored stock) and even the colors chosen (gold foil or 2 color letterpress). My Packages begin at $1,200 (which includes 100 flat printed invitations and reply cards with envelopes). The best way to get started is to tell me a little about your wedding style and budget.
What print methods do you use.
I love stationery that mixes and matched pricing techniques to create a truly custom style! I love letterpress (who doesn’t) but I also work within a variety of printing techniques like Screen printing, foil printing, laser cutting, digital and offset printing. If there is a specific type of printing your heart is set on, I can design your suite specifically with that process in mind.
I live across the county, can we still work together?
Of course! I love working with clients all over the world! We can have a virtual coffee date (or tea, or beer, really whatever you like to drink is fine with me!) to chat about your stationery over Skype or FaceTime! Proofs of stationery designs are sent via email, and I can always mail a paper sample, color swatch or anything else you may need to hold in your hands.
Will you mail my invites for me?
Yes! I offer assembling and mailing services for an additional fee. Just let me know you are interested in this service and I can add it to your estimate!
Do you offer envelope addressing
Well of course! I wouldn’t want you to have to slap a label on your newly designed invitations! I work with some amazing calligraphers who provide envelope addressing in a variety of styles, so I can find the right artist to compliment your finished invitation design. I also offer digital envelope addressing where your guest’s address is printed onto each envelope.
