My process is pretty simple: create exactly what you need! I love being efficient and productive, so here are the gritty details. Almost all of my work is custom, so not all of my projects follow this exact path, but generally this is how it works.
I require a signed contract and a 50% deposit to reserve your invitation order and to begin work on the design. Wedding invitation design orders take minimum 4 months to complete, and there are rarely rush options available, so please plan accordingly. A print deposit is made upon ordering of invitations. I’ll work with you to create a project timeline so we can stay on schedule.
Design proofs are sent via email on a proof template. Print proofs are generated within 5-7 business days. Clients are responsible for the written details and all typographical elements of the invitations. If errors are caught after approval, invitations can be reprinted, but the costs of reprinting are the responsibility of the client.
After approval and payment, I will begin print production. Printing takes approximately 6 weeks and your products will be shipped on or before the assigned shipping date specified in the contract. Production time can vary depending on the printing method chosen, with letterpress taking the most time and digital printing taking the least.
Pricing for wedding invitations can vary considerably, considering the range of invitations that can be made. Below is a list of printing methods, listed from least expensive to most expensive. I will update with current pricing once my collections have been completed.
1 Color Letterpress
2 Color Letterpress
Foil Stamp + Letterpress
Everything is priced separately to create the right suite for the right budget. All inserts, calligraphy, envelope printing, liners, etc. are an additional cost, so please contact me for a full estimate. Custom invitations include at least a $250 design fee. Shipping is based on size of order. Cost varies depending on size and weight; expected charges are at least $25. Delivery is only available for US customers – I am not able to offer international shipping at this time.
