View Tips, Advice, & Pricing in our Wedding Stationery Guide
We put together a complete stationery guide that outlines every little detail you’ll need to know about invitations. From printing options, wording examples, pricing, etiquette and more, we’ve got you covered!
Some of what we can provide you for your big day are: save the date announcements, all types of invitations (wedding, birthday, anniversary, children’s parties, bar and bat mitzvahs, baptisms, showers, engagement parties), stationery, thank you cards, menus, escort and place cards, signage, programs, favors….. the list goes on!
Whether you are in the Saint Augustine/Jacksonville area or not, we’d love to help make your big day special! We do letterpress and digitally printed wedding invitations. See our FAQ below for more information!
Please contact us with answers to the following information to get started:
1. What pieces do you need?
Examples include invitations, reply cards, programs, save the dates, menus, maps, itineraries, information cards, announcements, thank you cards, and more – the possibilities are endless!
2. How many of each piece (number of households)?
Keep in mind the invitation count may be less than the total guest count if you are inviting couples or families and you plan to send one invitation suite per household.
3. When is the wedding/event? When do you need each piece by?
Usually save the dates are sent out six months before the wedding (especially for out of town guests) and invitations and reply cards are sent out six weeks before. You may want to add an extra week or two to give time for stuffing and addressing. It may also be a good idea to have programs and other day-of pieces sent a week before the wedding so you have plenty of time to organize everything.
4. Do you have a theme or color palette? Do you have any examples of work that you like?
This won’t affect the price, but it helps to give me a sense of your vision while we are laying the groundwork. A Pinterest board is a great tool for this!
Getting Started: First, you will contact us and with the answers to the questions above and I send you the price and a project timeline. If this works for you, you mail me a 50% deposit and email me text and any design direction.
Design: After receiving payment, text, and direction, I can get started on the design of the first piece. This round takes the longest. I will send you an email PDF of different ideas for the first round and ask for your feedback. It is very important for you to communicate as much as possible what you do like and what you don’t like (you won’t hurt our feelings!). This gives us a good sense of how to move forward. When the first piece of the suite is final, I will apply that style direction to any additional pieces (reply cards, reception cards, etc). Please allow 2-3 weeks for the design phase.
Printing: Once all designs are approved, the remaining balance is due before the printing phase can begin. After receiving payment, I will order all the supplies I need for printing. The time frame from final approval and payment to the delivery of your package to your door usually takes 2-3 weeks.
Usually 3-8 weeks. Keep in mind, client communication is sometimes one of the biggest hold-ups in a project. I will honor all my deadlines and ask that you respond with feedback in a timely manner.
Each job is custom with multiple pricing variables - we have a link to our pricing guide above. If I know how many pieces you need, quantity of each, and general time frame, I am happy to provide a complimentary price quote. This also depends if you want letterpress or digitally printed invitations.
We require a 50% deposit before the design phase and the 50% balance is due before the printing phase.
