THE INVITATION PROCESS
Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding! What an exciting time this must be —planning your dream wedding and marrying the love of your life! We love LOVE and love creating pretty stationery for couples. If you love our style and would love for us to design something pretty for your wedding, please read below.
phase I (CONSULTATION)
The invitation process begins with a conversation – whether we meet face to face or chat via phone or FaceTime, we want to learn more about your dream wedding and the vision you have for your wedding invitations. We will discuss your invitation style, absolute must haves and everything you will need to make your wedding invitation suite complete.
PHASE II (PROPOSAL)
After your consultation, we will email you a proposal based on everything we discussed. If you would like to move forward, we will email you a contract and invoice to pay your deposit. Once we receive your signed contract and deposit, you will receive a welcome email with next steps and instructions on how to submit your verbiage. For general pricing information, please click here.
phase III (DESIGN)
Let the fun begin and the creative sparks fly! As we begin the design phase, we will take everything we discussed during your consultation and incorporate it into your invitation suite. We will expertly guide you through wording options and ensure etiquette is followed.
phase IV (PROOFING + APPROVAL)
Once the design of your invitation suite is complete, you will receive your first set of digital proofs within 5 — 7 business days. Together, we will carefully review your proofs to ensure everything is accurate. If you would like to make any changes, we will provide a second round of proofs based on your feedback. Once you are 100% happy with your design, we will email you a final proof for you to sign and approve.
phase V (PRODUCTION)
. After you approve your proofs and pay your final balance, your order will be scheduled for production. The printing and production of your invitation suite may take anywhere from three to eight weeks depending on the quantity and scope of your order.
PHASE VI (DELIVERY)
Every order is carefully packaged and inspected before it leaves our studio. Your order will arrive completely assembled and ready for mailing. All orders ship via FedEx with tracking. You are also welcome to pickup your order if you are in the Chicagoland area.
PHASE VII (FOLLOW UP)
Your feedback is invaluable to us and the foundation of our success. After your order has been delivered, we will follow-up with you to ensure you are pleased with the quality of service you received from us.
