Thank you so much for choosing me to be a part of your amazing event! I am so glad I get to be a part of it. :)
It is best to order your Invitations and/or Save the Dates at least 2-3 months before you need to send them out. The estimated turnaround time for the whole process is around 8-11 weeks depending on what you order. Here is a rough timeline of how your order will proceed:
Once you have submitted your order & wording (see below), I’ll follow up with an email to go over everything with you.
Your proof will be sent via email about 10-14 days after you’ve provided me with all the necessary information to start your order. This is your one chance to revise your wording/calligraphy. If more rounds of proofs are needed, a fee of $45 per round is charged.
From there I’ll make the changes and give you the final proof to sign off on before it’s sent to the printers. Your invitations take about 5-8 weeks to complete depending on what customizations and a la carte items were ordered.
After everything has been completed and quality checked, I will ship them to you via UPS and provide you with a tracking number! Once you receive your order, look over it to make sure everything looks great. Contact me within 7 days if there are any problems!
Voila! You're done :)
Eggshell 134# (Digital)
This off-white paper is the our standard option for the digital printing. It has the weight of a heavy cardstock. See example here.
This is our only handmade paper option for digital printing. The paper is white and has a slight "almalfi" texture with torn deckled edges. It has the weight of a heavy cardstock. See example here.
2ply Eggshell & Black (Letterpress, Foil)
This paper is thicker than the Eggshell 134# paper and is offered for letterpress and foil printing. Remember that letterpress ink is semi-translucent so black paper works best with foil printing. See example here.
Handmade Ivory, Gray, & Sage (Letterpress, Foil)
Handmade paper has a semi-rough texture. naturally deckled edges, and inconsistencies that give a more organic feel to invitations. There will be slight variations in size, paper thickness, print quality, color, etc. Both letterpress and foil print beautifully on it. It is thinner than the Eggshell 134# paper, similar to a lightweight cardstock. See example here.
If you are interested in other paper/material options, please inquire here.
If you have any questions about colors, don't hesitate to ask. The colors provided here are hand selected to work best with the collections but custom colors may be available upon request.
Digital printing is the most budget friendly option. Digital prints are limited to our Eggshell 134# and Handmade (Digital) paper.
Letterpress printing results in a unique debossing into the paper. Letterpress inks are not 100% opaque. It is best to letterpress on Eggshell or Ivory paper if you are concerned about the color of the paper showing through. Our Rose Garden Collection shows an example of how the translucency effects the ink color. It was printed with Gray letterpress ink on Sage paper.
Foil printing is 100% opaque and printed on the 2ply or handmade paper. It provides shiny metallics with a slight debossing onto the paper (but not as deep as letterpress). White foil is provided as opposed to ink since letterpress ink is translucent.
Rose Gold Foil
