Custom Design Process

STEP 1: BEFORE YOUR CONSULTATION

Whether you’re looking for a custom wedding invitation suite or a variation of a collection design, there are a few things you can do to help us get started before your consultation.  Fill out the custom design questionnaire, which gives me a better idea of your stationery needs.  Share with me your Pinterest board and let me see ideas for your wedding as a whole.  Order a sample of a collection design, and or our paper guide.  You’ll receive some of our standard papers with a few of our favorite fonts and color chart. Also, view our 2016 pricing guide.

STEP 2: SCHEDULE YOUR CONSULTATION

If you are located in the DFW area, I would love to schedule a time to meet with you!  We can talk about paper, colors, details and the overall design you are looking for in your invitation suite.  In the case that you are not within driving distance, I do offer an over-the-phone consultation or email.

 

STEP 3: CUSTOM INVITATION QUOTE, CONTRACT & DEPOSIT

After our consultation I will set up a custom quote for you.  This will be an itemized list of the pieces we have discussed and their individual pricing.  Once you have determined your investment, the quote can be updated to your specific needs.  Quotes and any added discounts will only be valid up to 30 days, until both your standard deposit has been paid and contract has been signed.  A non-refundable deposit of $100 will be required to begin your design process, and reserve your spot.  Your initial payment of $100 will be applied to your final payment.

STEP 4: CUSTOM DESIGN PROOFS

Once your design deposit has been received, I will begin your design process.  Please allow around 2 weeks for your digital proofs.  Edits and revisions take up to 48 hours, M-F.  Once you have approved your design I will mail you a printed sample of your invitation.  This will insure that you invitations are 100% ready for print.

 

STEP 5:  APRROVAL & FINAL PAYMENT

This is the time to make sure that everything is exact, from wording and color to quantity and add-ons.  You will be sent an electronic form of approval to sign, final quote, and final payment link.  Final payment is required for the print process to begin.  I suggest having a few reviewers check over your final draft to make sure everything is perfect!  Once final payment and approval is received you should have your invitation suite in 2-3 weeks.

 

TIMING

The full process can take up to 12 weeks.  Many factors can affect the link and time of your job.  I will provide you with a timeline specific to your order, please note this is only an estimate.

 

SHIPPING

I ship all orders through USPS priority mail with tracking and insurance.  Your design quote will not include cost to ship unless you have asked for this to be noted.  Please note if shipping cost is included in quote it may vary.  Shipping is not truly calculated until order has been printed and packaged.  Expedited
