a worry free approach to finding your invitation
We know how busy you are. Depend on us to do everything we can to make finding the perfect invitation a breeze.
First, we’ll get together to talk about your style, theme, colors, price point and timing. We’ll discuss if you would like your invitation designed from the ground up or if you would like to choose from our semi-custom options. You'll have the opportunity to look at as many samples as you'd like, but we'll help you streamline the search based on your style. This consultation is free of charge.
Second, you will receive a formal estimate for your invitation project via email. If you would like to proceed, a signature copy of the estimate along with a deposit of one half the total fee is required to reserve your design time.
Third, over the phone or in person we’ll discuss etiquette issues, type style preferences and verse composition. Within a couple of weeks, design concepts (camera ready art) will be emailed to you for your approval and you will have the opportunity to make revisions. Once the final design is approved, your design will go to print.
Fourth, when your ensemble is complete, you can take delivery in person (recommended) or have your order shipped to you. Your balance is due upon delivery. Instructions on how to properly assemble (stuff your envelopes) is given along with our exclusive addressing guide (free)!
Without your guests, it's not much of an "event." Allow yourself enough time to find the invitation that will entice your guests to join you. For a wedding, look for your stationer 9 to 11 months prior to the date. Order your invitations 5 months out and mail them 6-8 to eight weeks before the wedding. If yours is a destination or a holiday wedding, send out your invites 10-12 weeks before the wedding. Other invitations (graduations, anniversaries, showers, etc.) can be sent about 4-5 weeks prior to the event, but remember to allow yourself enough time to have something designed for you.
One of my friends said she cried when she saw my invitations because she knew hers didn’t compare. Our guests liked them so much they wrote compliments on their response cards. In every conversation with the guests, someone managed to bring up the invitations, programs, and menus. Nothing but compliments! Thanks so much!–Sandra
