Our Process

Our passion is creating inspired invitations and announcements that give a sense of time and place unique to your particular occasion. During our initial consultation we try to get a sense of your unique design style and inspiration. You will be involved in the design process as much or as little as you like. If you have a clear idea of what you want but just need help transforming those ideas into tangible pieces, we will work with you to ensure your vision becomes a reality. If you’re not sure about what you want, we will use your inspirations to create a custom piece that is sure to satisfy.

Based on our initial consultation and follow-ups, we proceed to the pre-production stage. Once we receive your initial deposit and signed contract, samples will be fabricated based on the design concept discussed. Depending on the design and your particular needs, the proofing process may include digital mock-ups, physical mock-ups, or both. Elements of this concept design can be modified to ensure the final design will be the perfect invitation or announcement for your unique occasion. Once all alterations or modifications to the prototype are made and you have approved the final concept, final payment is due and we proceed to production and printing.

Production times vary depending on design complexity, materials used, and our current schedule. The design process from start to finish usually takes between four and six weeks and production usually takes between four and eight weeks. Although rush orders can be accommodated, in an effort to ensure you receive all the attention you deserve, and to be sure we create a design you are completely satisfied with, we recommend you begin the process four to six months before you plan to mail your invitations.
