our process

We truly believe that your invitations are only the beginning and that the cohesiveness of your event branding should continue on to your extra stationery. We like to be a part of your wedding or event decor so informing us of all of the details will ensure that your stationery compliments every portion of your event in the best way possible!

Day of Stationery Details

step five

Upon completion of your proofs and final payment of your invoice the physical magic happens! We quality check everything during and after the printing and assembly process to make sure each invitation that goes out to your guests is in pristine condition. Next step is for you to assemble and mail to your guests or we can provide this service if you need a few extra helping hands. 

PRODUCTION

step four

We will provide you with a design and production schedule that will ensure your project will be designed and produced on time.After collecting all of your wording details, which we can assist you with, it’s time to focus on the main invitation design. We work with you one-on-one through several rounds of proofs to ensure you love the design. We work together through the design process by building out your concept one piece at a time, which results in a fully cohesive invitation suite. 

DESIGN TIME

step three

Shortly after the consultation you will be presented with a formal quote. The required retainer to formally book our services will be detailed in your quote. 

THE PROPOSAL

step two

Leave the creativity up to us as we use this time together to find out your needs along with design elements that you love the most. We will use our years of experience to talk through every detail and make recommendations based on the best options for you and your event. Before the consultation we will have you complete a questionnaire in order for us to get to know your personal style, your story and an overall sense of how we can best represent your event through paper!

Your Timeline

The end result of your custom stationery designs will be something that you never knew you could be a part of creating.

We work closely with you to understand your personality, style of your event, likes/dislikes and most importantly the experience that you would like your guests to have as soon as they grab the envelope from the mailbox. We understand that your event is not like anyone else’s so we work with you to ensure that your stationery is the perfect representation of you. We create a detailed plan for your stationery design based on your personal style and wedding vision. 

our approach

Busy schedule? Don’t worry, we are here to also assist you with stuffing and stamping your invitations so that all you need to do is place them in the mail and wait for all of the excited calls, texts and emails that you will receive. 

White Glove Service

Planning your event leaves you with enough tasks to do and items to check off your list, so we’ve created an organized system to seamlessly guide you through the design and production process. You shouldn’t have to worry or wonder about what’s going on with your project so we’ll have a schedule ready for you upon booking and a private client portal where we will discuss all things related to your design along with reviewing and finalizing proofs. 

Stress Free Process

We understand that design is not just about doing what’s trending or popular, but that it is about the careful selection and combination of papers, printing techniques, graphics, fonts and special enhancements. We believe in timeless designs that still have plenty of jaw dropping features. 

Intentional Design

We talk through all of the important information you need to relay to your guests and assist you with how to word it and where to place it in your invitation suite. We’ve pretty much seen it all when it comes to the proper etiquette and we are here to ensure you don’t break any “rules”, unless you want too!
