Custom Invitations

How do we get started?
The best way to get the ball rolling is to meet each other - from there, you'll get a better idea of what the invitations look and feel like in person, what paper and envelope selections are available, and get to know the person who's going to make your dream suite come to life (ie. me!). There is no financial obligation to the consultation, just an opportunity to see if it's a good fit for both of us.

What do I need to know about pricing?
Because every project is custom and unique, pricing is determined by the quantity, quality, and embellishments requested (ie. wax seals, ribbon, etc). Prices are non-negotiable, however, if you have a particular budget in mind, please mention what you would like to spend total or per invite and I can try my best to accommodate.

What can I expect once I receive my invitations?
You will receive your custom invitation suite unassembled and without postage - meaning you and your fiancé or MOH will have to grab a bottle of wine and hand pack each envelope for your guests. Invitations come carefully packaged with approximately 10-15 extras of each piece depending on quantity ordered. 

Do you offer letterpress? foil? 
I offer both! 

My printer is able to create custom dies for letterpress and foils (gold, silver, rose gold, etc). This is considered a more luxurious method of printing so plan your budget accordingly (but highly worth it for a quality memento in my opinion). See an example of letterpress here and gold foil here and here.
