THE INVITATION PROCESS

let's create something beautiful together

Browse through the Collection Designs on either the BABY or WEDDING pages and see if one suits your style - or we can custom design something that is exactly YOU! Confirm the number of suites you'll be needing and the types of pieces you might be interested in. To make things easier, we bundled the most commonly ordered pieces in tiered packages below. Letterpress and foil printed invitations have a minimum order of 50 total invitations. As you consider your invitation needs, please scroll below and review the various services that we offer.

All invitation stationery requires planning and time to get it just perfect! Between the design phase where we'll go back and forth designing and reviewing proofs, to the printing phase, and all the steps in between, we have lots to do! Letterpress and foil are labor-intensive printing processes and will require more time. Please keep that in mind when inquiring. 

Step 1

CHOOSE YOUR DESIGN OPTION

Custom

Design

For clients who want the most unique invitation, I offer custom designs. Choosing to work with me on a custom design allows me to create your design and artwork from scratch, specifically tailored to your style. Here is where we can literally create your heart's desires!

Collection Design

For clients who already love one of our existing designs, this is for you! They are carefully designed to evoke a sweet emotion and set the tone for your special day. Pricing for Collection Design orders includes changing the wording, colors, fonts, and placement (to some degree).

LETTERPRESS

Ink is applied to a raised image

or text area, and then pressed against paper transferring the

ink and design, and leaving

a slight kiss impression.

FOIL

A shiny foil film is imprinted

into the paper using heat, pressure, and metal dies.

The typical print method you're probably thinking of where ink

is placed onto the paper by a digital press. No color limitations.
