1. To begin the design process a Design Questionnaire is required which allows us to place you on our production calender. Once you have decided on which invitation you would like to order, simply fill out the Design Questionnaire which tells us how many invitations you need and very important details about your wedding Colors, wedding date, etc.). (If you didn't find a design or you would rather have a custom design, we can do that too! All of our designs began as custom designs and we do not charge an extra fee for a custom design. You can even send us a picture of a design you're interested in, and we will work with that, too!) We have over 200 different colors and patterns for you to reference on our Customize Options page. Even though our colors match our Card Stock, we can also match our colors to ink and ribbon as well for a more cohesive look! Once we receive the Design Questionnaire, we will send you a link to a password protected webpage where you can purchase your custom listing for a 50% deposit (unless you need a rush order which 100% of the balance is required) along with a contract. Your contract is digital which means no printer or scanner is needed. You will receive a signed version shortly after. If you would like to order a sample, please contact us directly. Samples are $5 each for invitations and $1 each for paper swatches and ship free of charge. Samples are customized with your colors, but not your wording at this time :) All Sample orders are credit towards your invitation balance should you decide to purchase invites from us.
2. Once the deposit is paid and contract is signed, we will begin to gather your colors and other supplies needed to begin your design and we go to work! We do not begin any designs without the deposit and contract signed. You are very much involved throughout the entire design process. You will receive digital (PDF) proofs along the way to ensure your invitations are coming along as you expected and that all information is correct. It is very important to proofread and approve your proofs at your earliest convenience to ensure there is not a delay in production. Once you approve the final proof and all information is correct, we will email an invoice to you for the remaining 50% balance; which is required before production of your order.
3. Once we receive the remaining balance, we begin production on your order. We will send you one last digital proof for you to get a glimpse of the actual finish product all put together. Once your invitations are complete, they will be sent directly to you. We generally ship orders using USPS Priority 2 Day which you will receive a tracking number as soon as your order ships. The whole design process from start to finish can take anywhere from 3-6 weeks. Rush orders are available for an additional fee.
