After you have filled out our initial questionnaire, we meet for a virtual or in-person coffee date (or connect via email if that is preferred). Our meeting will focus on getting to know you, honing in on your personal style, and discussing your vision for your invitations. By capturing your personal aesthetic, we will be able to craft a unique layout for your invitations that is representative of your personality and cohesive with your theme.
Estimate & Timeline
After our meeting, we will put together an estimate based on the printing methods and materials we feel best align with your vision for your invitations.
Upon approval of the estimate, we will move to a contract to detail all of the ephemera we will design within an agreed upon timeline. A non-refundable retainer of 50% of your estimated design cost will be due at this time to reserve your slot.
The design process begins with a curated mood board and inked sketch highlighting the overall aesthetic, color palette, layout, calligraphy samples, and details for your project. After this initial round of design concepts, we will fine tune the plan for your invitations and get started on your artwork.
Throughout each round of revisions, we will incorporate your feedback and adjust colors, layouts, calligraphy, fonts, paper types, printing methods, and details accordingly. We will supply you with wording examples and questionnaires to ensure the details of your event are correct. Upon final design approval and payment, we will prepare the file for print production.
After receiving your invitations from our trusted printers, we will inspect each and every card and make sure each piece carefully packaged to be delivered to you securely and flawlessly. If you have selected white-glove service, we will assemble and address your invitations with our expert touch, weigh them with USPS for an exact postage calculation, and mail them to your guests. You will be invoiced separately for postage.
