While your timeline will vary depending on your project, once your proof is approved, we send everything into production. Average timeline for our collections is 3-5 weeks. When your invitations arrive to our studio, we quality check everything and either get started assembling your suite for you if you have chosen that upgrade or we package things up to be sent out to you to assemble.
Once you receive your proof from us, you will look things over and approve spellings, layouts, colors and everything pertaining to your order. You get 3 complimentary revisions from us. After you approve everything, your suite will be sent into production!
Once you place your order with all the embellishments (Wax seals, vellum, add ons) that you are wanting, I will send over a detailed timeline with starting design dates for your projects as well as due dates for things. We will start designing around 5 weeks out from your mailing date to your guests. We can give you a timeline BEFORE you submit an order if you need to beforehand. We will send you a form to fill out with all your details!
The first step is to choose the suite that fits your wedding best. You then will add the quantity as well as the printing type that you would like. If you are lost or need some guidance on which suite to pick for your wedding, this is when we can jump on a consultation call.
Letterpress printing is done by using a plate on a press, rolling that plate with ink and creating an impression into the paper. This is Alex’s personal favorite printing method. It creates such a beautiful pillowy texture throughout.
Foil Printing is very similar to letterpress where a plate is made for each piece of your stationery, however, instead of ink, we use a foil sheet impressed into the paper. This method gives shine and elegance
to each piece.
Digital printing can be done on various paper types and creates a flat smooth printing finish.
Below you will see a sample of the colors that we offer for our collection suites. When you fill out your details questionnaire, you will be asked to choose a color for your ink.
Please note, Colors can vary between computer screens and printed products. Colors can also print different based on your paper selections. We highly recommend ordering a sample set to see everything in person. We do our best to match colors perfectly but just
know that color can vary batch to batch.
When ordering your stationery, the sooner the better. Our custom design process can take up to 6 months depending on the project. I always recommend starting earlier if you have people traveling out of town and to allow for time for mailing as well as RSVP replies to get back to you.
We always suggest ordering a few extra sets (10 extra sets is usually great) You will want a set for your photographer, a keepsake for yourself/family and any additional people you might need to invite down the road. Please note, that printing in small batches after proof approval and production is very costly. So we always suggest ordering a few extra JUST in case!
Yes! I understand weddings are very expensive and I am always willing to create a payment plan for you on either a custom or semi-custom wedding invitation. We do require at least a 50% non-refundable retainer to save your spot on our design calendar. Please reach out to us if you would like more information!
Day of Paper contains things like Menus, Programs, Table Numbers, Welcome Bag Tags, Escort Cards, Etc. You will want to order these a month before you need them so reach out 2 months before the big day to ensure design time for those pieces! We always suggest letting us know you are interested in day of goods while designing your invitations!
