THE
Custom Invitation Process

Initial Consultation

Whether it’s over the phone, email or an in-person meeting, if you are local to Boston I want to hear about your vision, style preferences and paper needs. From our initial conversation, I'll be able to present an estimate of costs, ideas, and timeline.  I offer a variety of print methods suited for a range of budgets. Clients requesting custom invitations typically have a budget between $700 - $4,000.

 

 

Design Process

After I have a solid understanding of what you’re looking for, I’ll present design options typically within 1-2 weeks.  We'll refine the design together to get it perfect.

 

 

Design Approval

 

Once the design is final and approved, I require a 50% deposit to start production.

 

 

 

Production

Printing generally takes anywhere from 10 days (for digital print) to  3 - 4 weeks (for letterpress and foil stamping). Finishing such as lining envelopes, collating and wrapping the suites in bellybands/ribbon/twine adds additional time.

Finishing Touches

 

I offer digital or machine calligraphy, or will happily collaborate with a calligrapher on your envelopes. I also offer mail fulfillment services for couples who prefer I mail on their behalf.

 

Day-of Paper Goods

I love to help carry your invitation style through to the day-of materials. I’m happy to help with menus, programs, table numbers etc. If you are a DIYer I can send you any of the custom graphics used within your suite.
