STARTING YOUR ORDER
Contact us by clicking on the “say hello” link and fill out our form.
We will be in touch to set up a phone call or work through email to collect all of the important details so we can have a "dialed in" idea of what you would like from your wedding stationery. We will then set up a time to meet in person to go over all the gorgeous details: the paper, the printing methods, the embellishments and the additional details like timeline, wording and day of stationery. Can't make it in for a meeting? No problem! We will mail you samples and swatches so you can still feel and experience the stationery elements. *Some sample items may require an additional cost.
Once we have collected all of your details we will create a quote for you to review. Once approved, the contract will be prepared for you to sign and then a 50% deposit will be due to start you order.
THE GOOD PART
On to the design!
We create a digital proof of your invitation suite all set up for you to carefully review and then approve. During the proof process we work one on one with you to create your dream invitations! Nothing is sent to production until you give the O.K. to print. We will remind you to take a careful and thorough look at all aspects of your proof. At this time you can request a physical approval sample or paper and print swatches so you can see the final piece in person to be sure it is everything you have dreamed of!
*Three proofs are included with your order, additional proofs can be added for an additional cost.
Once we receive final approval, we will start creating your stationery. Keep in mind when setting up your timeline that production takes approximately three weeks from proof approval. This way we can have ample time to source all of the custom embellishments and get that beautiful letterpress or foil piece printed!
A rush can be applied to your order to cut production time down for an extra fee. Please let us know if you think you will need this option and we can advise on timeline and rates.
When the order is complete we will notify you and the remainder of your balance will be due. Shipping costs will be added if you are not planning to pick up from our office. Once the payment is received we will ship your order.
We ship USPS priority or express mail with tracking and insurance. Please let us know if you prefer another form of shipping.
Save the dates should be sent out 6-8 months before your event and invitations should go in the mail 2-3 months before.
Please plan for the design and production time to take about 2-3 months when you select our fully custom design option. We will take you through an in-depth design process where we guide you from concept to completion to build your custom suite.
Normal production time on our semi-custom line takes about 3 weeks once the proof has been approved for print. Our standard shipping will take 2-4 days after the final payment has been made. Please add in at least two weeks for the design process and another week for you to assemble your invitations before send out. You can estimate total order time to be around 7 weeks.
We do have a 1 and 2 week rush production option should your need your invitations in a pinch! Please reach out to us for current rates.
Cushion your set quantity by 10-15%. More than likely your guest list will grow and you will want to keep a copy for yourself! Reorders are offered but there is an added fee.
Your RSVP return date should be set for about a month before the wedding to make sure you have enough time to round up those last RSVP’s.
It is only necessary to list a dress code if your affair is Black tie. Traditionally, this should be listed in the bottom right corner of the invitation. You can also choose to center it under the reception line.
If you would like your guests to know that your event is adults only; the most traditional way to list it at the bottom of your inivtation. Stating "Adults Only" is all you need. You can list this right next to Black tie if both of these options apply to your event.
In order to follow etiquette; please do not include any registry information in with your invitation suite. You can list it on your wedding website, shower inviattions and also let your guests know by word of mouth.
We print on a variety of different materials and are always open to trying new things! Handmade and cotton papers are our favorite, but if you have a special material in mind such as acrylic, wood or metal, we would be more than happy to create with you!
Our most popular forms of printing are letterpress, foil and digital / flat print. We pride ourselves as being one of the only printing companies that will flat print on handmade paper. It has become one of our most popular requests!
We can also laser cut and etch on many different acrylics and wood.
We try to show a variety of applications throughout our collections to inspire you! Some of our most popular right now are wax seals, vellum, envelope liners, silk ribbon and thread wraps. If there is an application you are dying to use, let us know! We would love to create a new trend with you!
