Invitation Design Process

CUSTOM INVITATION DESIGN PROCESS

STEP ONE:

This is the step where I get a feel of the look you have in mind for your wedding or event. You’ll gather images that capture your vision and compile a collection for me to see {Pinterest works really well for this}. The inspiration can be anything from other invitations, paper, patterns, textures, materials, etc. If you have specific requests such as font style, size, paper selections, etc. this should be communicated at this time. We can set up a phone call or Skype session if you wish to discuss your project ideas in further detail.

STEP TWO:

After you’ve shared your inspiration and ideas and I have a gathered the generally look and feel of your project I will compile a proposal.

STEP THREE:

When the proposal has been reviewed and approved, a signed proposal along with a 50% non-refundable deposit will be required and then the design process can begin! I will send initial digital proofs for you to review. If you have changes or edits you let me know and the revisions will be made at this time.

STEP FOUR:

After any changes or revisions have been made and approved and the design is approved the remaining balance will be due. Upon receiving your payment, the project will be sent to print where the printers create your beautiful pieces!

STEP FIVE:

When the printer has worked their magic and your pieces are ready, they will be shipped to you. If you have requested envelope calligraphy the pieces will remain with me until the envelope calligraphy is completed and then they will be provided to you.

NON INVITATION DESIGN PROCESS:

Depending on the project you are requesting, the process will either be almost identical to invitation design, or it can be a little less technical. Projects like address stamps and return addresses that are to be digitally printed will work the same way. Custom pieces like poems, vows, quotes, etc. will not have a design proof. We will work with you to understand the design aspects, layouts, fonts, etc. and create the piece. Hand lettered, one of a kind pieces do not have the proof or printing steps.
