Timeline

SAVE THE DATES
It is recommended to send out Save the Dates 6-9 months before your wedding. For destination weddings or out of town/country guests, aim to send out Save the Dates at least 9 months in advance. It takes about 1-2 months to design and print Save the Dates. 

WEDDING INVITATIONS
It is recommended to send out invitations 6-8 weeks before your wedding. For destination weddings or out of town/country guests, aim to send invitations out at least 8 weeks in advance. It takes about 3 months to design and print full wedding invitation suites, but might be able to work with shorter timelines.

DAY OF WEDDING PAPER GOODS AND SIGNAGE
We begin designing day-of items 1-2 months before your wedding. As the RSVP's roll in, usually weeks before your wedding, things are going to feel very real and will get very busy. With designs in place well in advance, you can focus on other things while we implement the design plan for your signage, escort cards, table numbers, etc. Have less than 1-2 months before your wedding?

Process

    First, we'll assess your needs (i.e., quantity, types of cards, etc.), style, and budget. This can be done over the phone or via email. If you have a wedding Pinterest board you can share, even better! After I get a sense of what you're looking for, I'll provide you with a preliminary design pitch and quote, followed by a proposal if you'd like to move forward. Fifty (50) percent of the balance is due upon signing of the contract. Then we'll begin the design process! From sketches to design rounds and revisions, we'll work together to make sure your invitations are perfect. Upon final approval of all the designs, the printing process for the entire suite will begin! We'll then assemble everything before shipping it all back to you. The final balance is due before the pieces are shipped.

    Flat printing allows all the pretty details and variations in watercolor to shine through, and is also very affordable. All flat printing is done in house. Letterpress and/or foil printing is gorgeous - we outsource this to trusted, local printers. Lastly, screenprinting is a great option for printing, especially on unique surfaces (i.e., acrylic) and is a more affordable alternative for metallic printing.
