DESIGN PROCESS

My process is all about a great customer experience. So whether you choose the bespoke route or go for a

Semi-Custom Collection , I will take very good care of you!

Place cards

Get in Touch

You can tell me all about your upcoming event by requesting a quote or contacting me through the Contact page. I will get back to you within 24 hours and while you are awaiting for my reply, you can dive into the Design & Pricing Guide and the Customisation Guide to get familiar with my process and all the options available to you that will make your paper goods unique.

Consultation

We will then schedule an initial creative consultation to discuss your stationery needs and wedding ideas. This is your opportunity to ask any questions you may have and to get really specific about what you are after. The consultation can be done by phone, zoom, email or over a coffee if you are local.

Quote & Booking

With a better understanding of your vision and your style, I will send you a design proposal as well as an estimate and a contract. A deposit of 50% of your quote is due on booking and for the design work to start.

Design

It is time for you to sit back and relax, you’re in good hands!

You will have access to your custom design timeline so you will know exactly what to expect and when. 

The process includes:

~ Refining the concept and nailing the details

~ Creating the design

~ Digital proof sent to you for revisions (2 rounds)

~ Final proof sent to be approved

With a thorough consultation phase and a collaborative process, 2 sets of revisions have proved to be adequate.

Production & Assembly

Once you have approved and signed off the final proof, it is time to send off your designs to print! The balance on your invoice is due at that time.

I will then take care of assembling by hand your invitations with all embellishments in the studio. Allow 2 to 3 weeks for printing and assembly.

Delivery

Get excited, your stationery is on its way!

I will make sure your paper goods are safely delivered to you.

Time is of the essence

The turnaround time for a custom suite is between 6 and 12 weeks depending on how intricate your project is. This is the time needed to ensure that your stationery is exactly the way you had envisioned it.

Your invitations need to be sent to your guests 8 to 10 weeks before your wedding day. So make sure you secure your spot in my diary early enough so that I can start on your bespoke design at least 5 months before your day.
