Finding the Perfect Invitation
Weddings | Celebrations | Stationery
Welcome! We hope you'll enjoy your time with us!.
To start the creative process, we ask that you contact us via phone or e-mail to schedule an appointment. Once we've confirmed your appointment, we'll send you a link to an online
Wedding Questionnaire. This allows us to learn more about you and your celebration so that we can be as efficient as possible with your time.
For your first appointment, we'll reserve two hours for you to consult with us and view our albums. While this may sound like a lot of time, it can take a while to get familiar with the options, browse albums and begin creating your invitation.
When you arrive, you'll get comfortable in our studio, where we'll review what we've learned from the Wedding Questionnaire. Based on your needs, we'll share information and answer questions, and discuss the various types of printing (engraving, letterpress, thermography, digital, foil stamping, etc.).
Then, you can browse to your heart's content! We represent dozens of designers and have many albums and samples for you to consider. We can also discuss ways to create a look that is completely custom for your celebration.
There are many decisions that may seem overwhelming at first. Just take them one step at a time. Decide on those factors that you can before your appointment (see our blog post called, "10 Things to Know Before Ordering Your Wedding Invitations"). Then, you can work with us to make the right decision for you and your budget.
Sometimes, our clients fall in love with a particular line, design the invitation and place the order at their first appointment. Others want to consider the options and come back another time (or two) to get things finalized. Either way is perfectly fine. During these meetings, we'll discuss your budget, choose the various pieces and designs, and decide on your wording.
After your appointment, we can accomplish many of the follow-up tasks via phone and e-mail. We do have clients who live in other places, so working remotely and shipping to your destination is never a problem. This part of the process involves reviewing proofs and tweaking every aspect of your design until it's perfectly to your liking.
There are many variables that impact the amount of time that it takes from your first appointment until the final invitations are in your hands. However, the average amount of time it takes from when you approve your final proof until we receive the final product is generally about two weeks.
In addition to Save the Dates and invitations, there are many other paper accessories and "day of" pieces that we can help you with. These include:
Place cards/escort cards
Custom napkins/guest towels
Printed treat bags
Thank you notes/stationery
Other party invitations (showers, bachelorette, luncheons, brunches, rehearsal dinners, etc.)
(For more details on these items, check out our blog post, "The Other Wedding Stationery!")
We look forward to meeting you and helping you create your dream invitation for your celebration!
