On average, Cassie Creative couples spend $1,105 for a quantity of 100 save the dates, and $2,340 on a quantity of 100 invitation suites with three pieces printed on our gorgeous house stock. This includes their save the dates with envelopes and return address printing, as well as a suite with invitations, response cards, information cards, return address printing, and two coordinating envelopes in the color of their choice. Pricing varies depending on quantity, paper selection, printing methods, and any other fun extras you have your heart set on, such as maps, envelope liners, wax seals, silk ribbon, and more.
The awesome part? All of our prices include unlimited watercolor and calligraphy. We want you to have your dream suite without being limited by an upcharge for larger watercolor graphics or extra calligraphy. That means the price you pay per piece is going to be the same whether you want a small watercolor crest in the center or edge to edge watercolor graphics. We also include unlimited revisions, to make sure your suite is perfect.
Our design process for custom invitation suites takes approximately eight to twelve weeks. We take on a limited number of projects per year and recommend booking six to eight months before the big day to reserve your slot.
After you have filled out our initial questionnaire, we meet for a virtual or in-person coffee date. Our meeting will focus on getting to know you and your sweetie, honing in on your personal style, and your vision for your invitation suite. The more details you provide, the better!
Estimate and Contract
After we have a good sense of your vision, we will put together a quote based on the printing methods and materials we feel will best suit your needs.
Once you talk it over with your sweetie, we will move to a contract to detail all of the paper goods we will design with you within an agreed upon timeline. A deposit of 50% of your estimated design cost from the proposed quote will be due at this time to reserve your slot.
After we receive your first payment, we will get you set up in our client portal and send you a fun welcome packet in the mail!
We create an inked sketch of the pieces we have planned for you to map out our vision for your suite and ensure it aligns with yours. Your inked proof will also contain a color palette, custom curated mood board, and samples of calligraphy styles.
Once we've received your feedback and you've approved the sketch, we will send you our wording questionnaire and move forward with the initial colored proof of your entire suite.
Your colored proof contains all of your custom artwork, calligraphy, and the details of your event. You will have two rounds of revisions built into your timeline to make sure the design and wording are just right.
Final Proof & Invoice
Your final proof will be sent to you electronically with your production agreement and final invoice. You will need to sign off on the production agreement, making sure the spelling, quantities, ink colors, materials, and printing methods are all correct. At this point, your materials will be ordered and your final payment will be due.
Once your materials and final payment have been received, we will begin production of each piece. Flat in-house printing may take up to two weeks, depending on the size of the order, while specialty print methods will take longer. If you have selected addressing or assembly services, we will begin these immediately following printing.
If you have elected to mail your invitations yourself, your pieces will be shipped to you once production and assembly are complete.
Assembly & Mailing
It is time to prepare your invitations for mailing! If you have chosen to let us do the heavy lifting, we will take your suites to the post office and have them weighed for an exact postage calculation. You will be invoiced for postage.
Once payment has been received, we will stamp your envelopes and drop them at the post office for mailing. It is finally time for your beautiful suites to be shown to your guests!
If you need any perfectly coordinated day-of-details, such as table numbers, menus, programs, or escort cards, now would be the time to order those.
A comprehensive guide on paper, printing, and extra details to fit your unique taste and budget.
