How much do invitations & stationery cost?
Pricing depends on several factors; the level of customization (if you choose form my COLLECTION, or want something SEMI-CUSTOM or CUSTOM designed), quantity, number of insert cards, size of cards, paper type, envelope printing, etc. For example, if you choose a design from my Collection (personalization of words is always included) 100 invitations would be - $215 (5x7” flat) and RSVP Cards would be $175 (3.5x5” flat). Blank, white envelopes are included where needed, and envelope printing can be added.
Textured paper (linen or cotton), coloured, kraft, or textured envelopes can be substituted for additional cost, at request. P.S. All of my invitations are double sided to show off the artwork and leave room for the important information!
Can you change the colours of your artwork or fonts of an existing design?
In most cases, yes, I can change the colours and fonts of an existing design to match the look and feel of your event! Depending on the scope of the change, there will be a design fee which we will mutually agree upon first!
How much time does it take in total?
The timeline for stationery depends on the complexity of the order (number of items, amount of customization, luxe paper options, etc.) Generally speaking, if you’re interested in one of my COLLECTION designs, it’s ideal to begin the process at least 4-6 weeks before you’d like the prints in your hands. That will allow for personalization, revisions, proofs and shipping. If you’d like a new, CUSTOM design, 8-12 weeks is ideal.
Do you address and/or assemble the invitations?
Envelope printing is a great option! I can have all of your guests’ addresses (along with your return address and an illustration from the design to make it pretty!) printed on the invitation and RSVP envelope, so all you need to do is stamp them! Assembly is not included in my pricing, but can be completed for an additional fee (determined by the amount of pieces). Hand-written addressing and calligraphy is also an added luxury option :)
Can you design items other than wedding invitations?
Absolutely! I can design anything that can be printed, including custom maps, insert cards, belly bands, printed envelopes using the chosen artwork, menus, programs, placecards, table numbers, signage, and thank you cards! I can also design invitations for any event, such as engagement parties, bridal or baby showers, bachelorette parties, birthday parties. etc!
I also specialize in watercolour brush-lettering and would love to letter your favorite quote, song lyric or recipe for a one-of-a-kind piece of art.
How many invitations should I order?
After you count up the households you’ll be mailing to, I recommend ordering 5-10 extra sets, for any additional guests and keepsakes
Do you proofread?
Nope I’d prefer to leave that up to you and your loved ones, and I’ll stick to the design and artwork! I’ll do my best to catch anything out of place text-wise, but I focus more on the overall look and aesthetics!
What date should I use on my RSVP cards?
1 month is most common, but you’ll want to check with your reception location or caterer to see when they need a final count. I’d suggest adding a week or 2 to follow up with the ones you haven’t heard from.
Will I get to see a printed sample of my design to approve?
Once you’ve approved the digital proof, you can absolutely have a printed proof mailed to you for approval before ordering the final batch! They take about 7-10 business days to arrive, within North America (International depends on location).
Are rush orders available?
If my schedule permits, I can work with a rush order – you’ll just have to ask!
Yes, absolutely! I can work all over the globe thanks to the internet I work with Canadian and US printers, but for countries outside of North America, I’d recommend 3-4 weeks extra to account for shipping and possible customs delays (duties and customs fees are the sole responsibility of the client). We could also discuss the possibility of working with a printer in your area.
