Custom Invitation Process
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 $800 - $4,000.
After I have a solid understanding of what you’re looking for, I’ll present design options within 1-2 weeks. We'll refine the design together to get it perfect.
Once the design is approved and ready for print, I require a 50% deposit to start production.
Printing generally takes anywhere from 10 days (for digital print) and 3 - 4 weeks (for letterpress and foil stamping). Finishing such as lining envelopes, assembling and wrapping the suites in bellybands/ribbon/twine adds additional time.
*rush options available
I offer digital or machine calligraphy, or will happily collaborate with a calligrapher on your envelopes. I also offer mail fulfillment services for busy couples who prefer I mail their invitations on their behalf.
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.
