Below are some FAQs and answers to make your design decisions easier.
How do I get started?
Set up a complimentary consultation with me to discuss your vision and inquire pricing. Feel free to email me with any questions.
How much do save-the-dates/invitations cost?
Each project varies. Once we determine what you are looking for, I will be able to offer you a specific quote. The price depends on the size of the request, paper quality (thickness), style of paper (matte, glossy, etc.), any added accessories (ribbons, lace, etc.), type of envelope, quantity of your request, shipping and any extra additions. Please contact me with any questions or set up your complimentary consultation.
When do we send out our save-the-dates/invitations?
Save-the-dates are typically sent out around 4-6 months before the wedding. Mailing them early is acceptable, especially for destination weddings or if you have guests traveling from out-of-town. Invitations are typically sent out 6-8 weeks before the wedding.
What happens during the consultation?
The first consultation is complimentary. During this meeting we will discuss what you envision for your wedding day or event. This would include discussing the theme, colors, style, fonts, print quality, how many guests you will be expecting, timeline and budget. It is important to get as much information from you to make your dream look come true!
Do I need to live in the Milwaukee area to work with you?
Not at all. I work with clients from all over. Thank you, technology!
How long does the design/printing process take?
Once you place your order and deposit, the process will be approximately 3 weeks or more. It all depends on how quickly we communicate back and fourth and how many rounds of revisions are needed.
Can you help with etiquette language?
Absolutely! I am happy to give suggestions or help with any questions you might have.
Will I see the invitation before they go to print?
Of course! You are involved in every step of the way. I will not print anything that isn’t approved by you.
Booking & Payment
After your quote is sent, I will also include a contract for you to look over and sign. Once the contract is signed and returned, 50% of the deposit is due to begin designing. Your remaining balance is due at the time you approve your order for print. If the date is less than 30 days from ordering, payment will be due in full at the start of your request.
