INVESTMENT and PROCESS

Transparency is extremely important to us and we strive for our process to be as simple as possible. That’s why we structure our pricing to be straightforward so that you understand what you are investing in for stationery you absolutely love. Here’s a quick breakdown:

Our structure is comprised of two factors, a design fee and the production cost. The design fee is a the cost to create the artwork and design for every element of your suite. The production cost is the per-piece cost for the design to be created into a physical product. Depending on your timeframe and budget, you can choose from custom design or semi-custom design.

Custom design work involves creating something totally authentic to you, so the price will include the design fee and production cost. Semi-custom design means we're working with an existing design you've seen on our website or social media as a base, but personalizing it to make it fit perfectly for you and your vision, so it will include only the production cost since the overall design is already done.

our custom PROCESS for design

Click on each stage for more information about how we work.

 
Proposal Phase

1 | inquiry & complimentary consultation
Once you submit your inquiry form and set up your free consultation to chat over what your vision is and how I can help, I’ll should have everything I need to create your custom proposal.

2 | custom proposal
Your custom proposal will have a personalized quote based on our consultation, as well as a mood board for the design. We can provide as many quote revisions as you need that fits your needs.

3 | contract & retainer
Within your personalized proposal, you can accept your quote and provide any feedback that may affect pricing. Based on your comments, I will then email you your contract to sign and invoice. To book your design service, we require a 50% retainer with the remainder due before your pieces are sent to print.

Design Phase

4 | wording questionnaire & concept sketches
Based on our initial consultation and communication of what you are looking for in your invitation suite, you will receive design sketches that will outline the direction I will be going in when creating your final artwork, illustrations and calligraphy.

5 | first design proof
The first design proof will be your first glimpse of what your invitation suite will look like in real life! Based on the concept sketches we worked out in the first stage, this proof will include refined artwork, illustrations, calligraphy and all the information you provided will be thoughtfully laid out throughout the design. If you are happy with everything this first proof, we can jump right to the final proof & print approval!

6 | design revisions
All project include up to three design revisions so if you would like some changes to the first proof, you have 2 additional revisions where we can continue to refine your invitation suite design to be exactly what you are envisioning. Once we conclude with the proofing process, we can continue onto the final proof & print approval.

7 | final payment & print approval
Your final proof will include each piece of your invitation suite for you to carefully review for any quantity, layout, informational or spelling errors. Once you sign off on the final proof, you authorize us to go ahead and start the production part of the process.

Production Phase

8 | production & assembly
After receiving your Proof Approval for Print, your pieces are sent into production and we get to work putting together your dream suite. Depending on your selected service level, we address, assemble, and stamp your suites for you.

9 | your final product
Once every piece is inspected and given the AMR blessing, we box everything with care and ship them directly to you. If your selected service level includes addressing and postage, all you'll have to do is take your box to the post office to mail your suites (unless we’re mailing for you too, of course!). We'll even give you tips and best practices on what to do at the post office when you're mailing them.
