TELL ME ABOUT YOUR WEDDING

This is our first chat where I get to know you and hear about your love story. This is your chance to give me all the details about your wedding colors, florals, venue and more. We can also chat about paper options, printing techniques and the little details that make these invitations uniquely yours. I will take all of that information and put together a custom proposal for your wedding stationery.

the process: step one

INSPIRATION & DESIGN

Once you have chosen all the pretty options, I will put together an inspiration packet with font choices, graphic design options and color schemes. From there I will create your wedding invitation suite. Your involvement in the design process is totally up to you. Want to give your input every step of the way, go for it! Want to be surprised at the final designs, that works too! Feedback is encouraged throughout the process to ensure you get exactly what you are envisioning!

the process: step two

PROOFS & FINAL APPROVALS

When I have a thumbs up from you, I will send over the final proofs. This is a great time to show these to a friend or family member to help with the last round of proofreading and double checking details.

the process: step three

print order is placed

Next, your custom wedding invitations are sent to the printer! This process can take anywhere from 2-3 weeks for flat printing or up to 4 weeks for letterpress.

the process: step four

packaged and delivered

Your invitations will then be carefully boxed and packaged up for a safe trip to your destination. Ask about pick up in the Cincinnati area if you are local!

All the details:

You will likely send save the dates (I do these too!) around 6 months - 1 year before your wedding. Then wedding invitations, rsvp and other details are typically sent 2-3 months prior to the wedding.

when should I send my wedding invitations?

This is where I come in! I will walk you through and make suggestions for wedding invitation wording. I know all the dos and don'ts when it comes to invitation etiquette.

how do i know what to say on my invitations?

It is an industry standard recommendation to order invitations in an amount that is 70% of your guest list. This accounts for households and couples, as well as gives you a few extra for keepsakes.

how many invitations do i need to order?

I am not able to do physical proofs of your invitations, but you will get realistic digital mock-ups along the way!

Will I get a physical proof of my invites?

Yep! I can mail you a sample pack with a few different printing methods and paper types so you can feel and see the quality of my invitations.

are you able to mail me a sample?

Nope, I am happy to say that I am able to ship worldwide so I can work with you regardless of the country you are in. 

do I have to be in the u.s. to order from you?

I am located in a town north of Cincinnati, Ohio called Hamilton. I am happy to provide local pickups to anyone in this area.

where are you located?

Yes, absolutely! And I actually recommend this depending on your budget, sometimes it makes sense to splurge on the letterpress for the invitation, but save on the rsvp card and go with digital printing for that.

can i mix and match printing methods?
