Invitations

Most weddings follow the same formula for mailing invites, which you can see below!
If you're under a time crunch, rush fees may apply to design and production times.

Because I create everything from scratch in my studio, I don't print any designs that aren't mine. I'd be happy to recommend a few print shops that would be able to assist you in printing your pre-designed invitations!

I have a design already, can you print it for me?

Absolutely! The alternative that I offer is to calligraph your guest's names above their printed address. This is a great cost-effective option that keeps your design aesthetic the same throughout your suite!

I can't afford calligraphy addressing. Do you have other options?

I don't recommend handwriting your own guest's addresses or printing labels, because your invitations are created with a special aesthetic in mind that those two methods may not match well with.

As soon as possible! The best time to order your day-of paper goods is while we're discussing your invitations. All you have to do is secure your spot — we can chat about more details down the road — but it's always better to be on my schedule in advance!

When should I order my day-of paper goods?

All guest names and table information will be required two weeks before your wedding day. If you submit your guest information with less than 14 days until your wedding day, your order may be subject to a rush fee and automatically upgraded to rush shipping.

Simply put, custom invitations are built from the ground up. This option is great if you have a lot of unique details to incorporate into your invitation suite, such as unique letterpress details, a venue illustration woven into a crest, or extra pieces not included in a traditional 4-piece suite.

Partial customs have a pre-built structure that we work from, but are tailored to your wedding details. For example, if you chose a partial custom suite with a venue illustration, I would hand draw and insert your venue illustration into the design (or you could choose from a few pre-designed images!)

What is the difference between custom invitations and partial custom invitations?

click here to order your vow books!

Yes, definitely! One of my specialties are line drawings of venues or pets – if you haven't thought of incorporating your fur-babies into your wedding day somehow, I have so many ideas for you! – and we can absolutely add color to those illustrations as well.

Do you offer custom
illustration services?

The best part about illustrations is that we can use them for so many pieces! I've created elaborate maps for past clients using special places their guests will visit during their wedding, or crests with the couple's pets or favorite activities represented.

The pandemic has changed so much in our lives, and seeing what you as couples have to navigate is tough. I'm completely dedicated to my couples and am willing to work with you if your plans change for whatever reason at any time.

What happens if I need to postpone or decrease my quantity?

Minimum investments will still be required in the event of these changes, as these help to keep my business open and serving couples like yourself. Your invoice will be adjusted to meet the minimum investment regardless of quantity changes.
