So, you're excited right? Ready to begin? Not sure what to expect? Or where to start? Here’s how it works:
If you’re in the Albuquerque area, go ahead and book a consultation. If you’re not local to me, that’s OK too – we can work via email (or you can shop online through my store, or my Etsy shop). At your consultation we will discuss the basics including how many invitations you’ll need, what types of pieces will go into building your package and we’ll look at inspiration and color swatches. You’ll have the opportunity to browse through previous designs and we’ll discuss your likes and dislikes. If you fall in love with a design in my current collection, I’m happy to customize it to suit your wedding, or I can design something fresh and new! During the consult we’ll also discuss printing and pricing options.
Once you’ve placed your order and initial deposit I will get to work on your design. If you are selecting a design from my current collection you’ll receive an email sample proof of your invitation package, and revisions are made as needed before you give any print approval. If I am creating a new design for you, you will receive 1-3 initial design concepts for review, and then additional rounds of revisions are available on your chosen design. Nothing will be sent to print without your final approvals.
Timeline: If you are selecting a design from my current collection, the turnaround time is typically 3 business weeks. If your package requires assembly, an additional business week may apply.
If I am creating a custom design for you, please allow for 6-8 weeks, which includes assembly. Luxury printing options like foil and letterpress may require additional time for printing.
I am a small shop, and therefore I don't keep a large supply of cardstock and envelopes on hand at all times. Most components for your order will be ordered for your package. Rush orders are available based my schedule, and may require a rush fee, so please check with me if you are worried about your timeline. Fully custom designs are not available for rush.
Payment Terms: I currently accept cash, all major credit cards, debit and PayPal. A retainer fee of half your total will be collected before work will begin. The remaining balance will be due upon pickup or delivery. If you require shipping your balance will be due before shipping will occur. Shipping rates are determined based on your order.
You may also choose to purchase your invitations online through my shop, or via my shop on Etsy.
