COMPLIMENTARY DESIGN CONSULTATION
Our complimentary design consultation can be done either in our studio that is located in Van Nuys, CA, or by phone. We’ll chat about your wedding in detail and work together to design your perfect invitation. Before your scheduled consultation, please send us any inspiration you have collected for your special day including color swatches, venue, dresses and decor ideas.
ESTIMATE & CONTRACT
We will send you an estimate based on our design meeting and work with you to fine-tune the invoice according to your needs. Once the invoice is finalized, we will need a completed contract + a 50% deposit, which can be paid by check, M/C or Visa (sorry we’re not set up for Amex right now!), in order for us to begin your proofs.
DESIGN + PROOFING PHASE
Once you have submitted your contract you will need to send us the wording for your stationery suite. Kindly type it out exactly how you would like it to appear on your invitation, rsvp & any inserts in an email or a word document. Please do not format (centering, fonts, spacing, etc)…we will take care of this for you. Please double check all spelling before sending. After we have received your wording, deposit & signed contract we will begin the proofs. You will receive a pdf file of your invitation suite. You will have the opportunity to make changes to the design & also correct any spelling errors. We ask you keep major design changes (color, fonts, layout) to one change.
PRINTING APPROVAL & FINAL SIGN OFF
We will not send your order to the printer until you are completely satisfied and give us the written permission that we are approved to print. Any mistakes found after the invitations have been printed cannot be corrected without additional fees. So please be sure to triple check and ask a friend or family member to also look over before giving us the approval to print.
PRINTING AND PRODUCTION
After we have your approval to print, production will begin on your order. Depending on the printing process and materials used, this process typically take 10-15 business days. Hand calligraphy addressing typically takes 15-20 business days. The entire process, from consultation to delivery, typically takes 8-10 weeks.
DELIVERY & SHIPPING
All orders are shipped via UPS ground from Los Angeles, CA unless otherwise instructed. Order pick-up from our studio is also welcomed.
