1Complimentary Consultation

The stationery and event design process starts with a complimentary consultation in which we get to know you and learn all about your event! This consultation can be held in person, over the phone or through email.  We will discuss your event details, review our samples and existing designs, as well as discuss your own style, ideas and budget.

2Estimates and Contracts

Following the consultation you will receive a detailed estimate on the products and/or event services you are interested in ordering.  In order to reserve your date on our production calendar and begin working on your design, a 50% deposit is required and will be applied to your final balance. Designs will begin once we receive the signed contract, 50% deposit and your final text. Design work will not begin until the design fee is paid.

3Design Fees

All our work is custom. Pricing varies greatly depending on materials used and labor involved. To ensure that you receive that perfect invitation for your event, much time is spent discovering your needs, perfecting designs, showing samples, followed by many days of printing and assembling your final order with strict quality and workmanship guidelines. Clients can request a custom sample, which requires a sample fee, to be determined based on the complexity of the invitation. Complex, boxed invitations, or heavily embellished samples may require a greater sample fee, which will be discussed at the time of your design consultation. The sample fee is non-refundable but will be credited to your final order in most cases.

4Design Concepts

You are invited to the fun part now! All of our designs are customized and created just for you, based on your tastes, style and event details with your choice of colors, fonts and motifs for a truly distinctive invitation ensemble that represents your big day. We will present designs for your review based on the input you provided us during the consultation. Please be aware that this is a collaborative process. It requires your input regarding design, samples, revisions, and wording/information in order to create invitations that best match your vision. We'll be in touch quite a bit during this phase as we finalize your design, so please keep this in mind. Our standard packages always include two to three design layout options and up to three rounds of revisions. Unlimited options and revisions are available for an additional fee.     

5Final Approvals

Before printing begins, you will be e-mailed an electronic Final Digital Proof (Adobe PDF file) for final review for accuracy of all information, including but not limited to spelling of names, venues, punctuation, dates and time. We encourage our clients to take their time to thoroughly review their digital proof at this stage. Upon your written approval, the files will be sent to the printer and production will begin.     

6Printing and Production

Depending on the complexity of your order, its pieces, materials and parts, it will be ready in 3-8 weeks. Rush printing is also available. 

7Delivery and Shipping

Upon completion of printing and production, your final balance is due. We offer various options for the delivery of your invitations.  If you are in the Philadelphia metropolitan area, we can arrange for pick up or delivery. Or we can ship it to you through the US Postal Service, UPS or FedEx.
