We pride ourselves on an intimate, personalized experience as we create your custom invitations for your special day.
Here’s how we work:
Send Me a note
Whether you’re dreaming of custom wedding stationery or a semi-custom piece, every stationery process starts in the same way – with a note. Feeling your excitement in each of your emails fuels me, and there’s something so special about a new beginning. If you would like to get in touch, my Contact page is the best place to start.
Whether we chat in person of over the phone, a consultation allows me to learn all of the details about your wedding! During your session, which ideally occurs 6-8 months before your event’s date, I’ll be eager to hear about your ideal day from your style and venue, to your favorite pieces of inspiration and palettes you can’t stop thinking about. Your consult is also the ideal time to chat through stationery details. I’ll happily explain paper types and printing styles as well as invitation styles, stationery shapes, patterns, color, wording, costs, timelines, and more. If you’re able to meet at my studio in Langhorne, I’ll be able to show you previous invitations that I designed, which helps to offer insight into the potential look and feel of your final pieces.
The key to a great consultation is for me to learn as much as possible about you and your love, in order to create a proposal to match your unique wedding day vision beautifully. While working on your proposal, I’ll make suggestions for the best printing styles, paper types, and customized details to match your ideal budget. Plus, your guest count and timeline will be at the forefront of my mind, and your proposal will also reflect whether we feel semi-custom or custom stationery will work best for your event. Once it’s prepped and ready to go a few days after your consultation, I’ll send your proposal over to you via email with a note to explain every detail.
Signed, Sealed, Delivered
Once you receive your proposal, I encourage you to pour over every detail and suggestion carefully. I’m happy to make adjustments and edits where we mutually see fit. Once we’re all on the same page, I kindly ask you to sign your contract and submit your 50% deposit.
The design process usually occurs over a 3 to 4 week time period during which I will be in regular contact with you to share updates, answer (and sometimes ask!) questions, and ensure my vision is closely tied with what you have in mind for your semi-custom or custom invitation pieces. Once your designs are complete, I’ll send over the options for you to review. The colors, paper, and printing processes will also be detailed so you have a complete view of how your pieces will come to life!
Whether I’m designing save the dates or day of stationery, the most important part of your process is proofing. I consult all of the information you have provided regarding names, dates, and locations, but I’ll also rely on you to offer your final approval. That’s why I strongly encourage you to review wording for accuracy regarding spelling, times, and everything in between. I’m happy to include up to three rounds of revisions to make sure your wedding stationery is just right! Once proofed, I will ask you to submit the remainder of your balance in order to move onto step 7 – printing!
It's time to print
Depending on the type of printing and assembly options you may have chosen, your invitation can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks until it is completed. Digital printing normally takes less time, while the specialty printing processes take longer. I will give you the appropriate timing on your timeline. Additionally, let’s talk about your post-printing plans! Would you like to host an assembly party with your closest friends, or would you prefer I assemble your suite for you*? Either option works well, but you will need to make a decision regarding your assembly before your suite goes to print.
If you’re local and wish to pick up your stationery at my Langhorne studio, you’re welcome to make an appointment. However, I’m also happy to ship your suite to you*. Whichever method you chose, the day your stationery is delivered to you is always thrilling!
