THE INVITATION PROCESS
* TIME FRAME *
Our custom luxury invitations are works of art and can be time consuming to produce. We source materials from many vendors from all over the world to create each design. We suggest you start as early as possible. It is highly recommended you order your invitations at least four to six months prior to your wedding to give us time to create your invitation in perfect detail, avoid rush fees, and for you to be able to send them out to your guests in a timely manner.
1. COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION
The process starts with a complimentary consultation either in person, by phone or video chat (we work with international clients all the time) in which we get to know you and learn all about your event. This is your opportunity to review our existing designs and for us to go over your design requirements and discuss your own style and ideas in detail.
Following your consultation you will be provided with an Estimate followed by a link to a detailed Invoice/Contract. The design phase will commence once we receive the 50% deposit, and your text.
3. DESIGN PHASE
For clients who choose a design from our online portfolio, this part involves seeing your chosen design come to life with your colors, papers, font selections and embellishments. Clients requiring a brand new custom design will require a more involved collaboration. Along the way we will utilize our design expertise as we guide you to the best materials and elements to achieve the optimal look for your invitation suite. Concepts will be presented for your review via pdf and emailed photos. We will refine your design with unlimited revisions until it is perfect!
Depending on the complexity of your order, its pieces, materials and parts, it will be ready in 4-8 weeks. Rush ordering is also available for an additional fee.
Before printing begins, you will be e-mailed an electronic Final Digital Proof (color Adobe PDF file) to review for typos, grammar, spelling, punctuation and accuracy of your information. Upon your approval, the files will be sent to the printer.
5. PRINTING & PRODUCTION
Once the pieces are received by us from the printer then production/assembly will begin. The final payment is due at this time.
We offer various shipping options including United States Postal Service, Fedex, UPS as well as in store pickup for local clients. All invitations are meticulously hand-checked before they are shipped out to make sure each and every piece is perfectly crafted.
