Our Collection Guide will help you navigate our Semi-Custom Collection process and the customization options available. We encourage you to read and refer to this guide while preparing to submitting your invitation order. Please be also sure to read Terms & Conditions.

 

THE PROCESS

Time: 6-8 weekes

 

0 1 | Select you design

Browse the 6 semi-custom designs here and select the design that fits your wedding aesthetic. Semi-custom designs allow customization options for paper type, printing method, envelope color and ink color. Moreover you can decide to add embellishments like wax seals, silk ribbons and envelope addressing.

 
 

 
 

0 2 | Request a quote




Request a quote by completing the Semi-Custom Questionnaire. I will gather some of the big details such as your wedding date and estimated budget for invitations. After I receive your questionnaire, I will send a quote for you to approve.  Once you have approved the quote you will pay a deposit and fill out the wording questionnaire, so that I can start designing your wedding suite.

 
 

 
 

03 | Design and Proofs

I will create the calligraphy artworks and you will receive an initial proof of your invitation suite within 5 business days. Please review all of the information carefully and make sure the spelling is correct. After this first proof, if needed, one revision is included: this covers any changes to information and wording as well as ink color. Please note that once you have approved the second and final proof, no more changes can be made.

 
 

 
 

04| Production

Your design will be sent to print. Printing usually takes about 2-3 weeks depending on the printing methods. Any additional ornaments and/or envelope addressing will be completed after your invitations are printed. Once everything is ready to go the balance is due.

 
 

 
 

0 5 | Shipping

Your finished invitations will be carefully packaged and shipped to you!
