How does the custom design process work?
1 | Consultation.
We begin all custom stationery with a personal consultation — be it in person in Houston or a chat over the phone or Skype. We’ll go over all the pertinent details and exchange ideas on how to best visually communicate your story.
You’ll want to bring, or email us, anything that will help us get started on creating the feel of your event. If a perfect color match is critical to you, bring or mail us a swatch so we can help select that perfect ink to coordinate. If all you have is a handful of magazine tear-outs or a slew of Pinterest pins and aren’t sure where to start, we can help you discover your common visual and style preferences from a fresh perspective.
We simply want to get a feel for who you are so that your stationery is as personal as possible.
2 | Estimate. After the consultation, an estimate will be presented and design will begin after a non-refundable 50% deposit is made. A first proof is typically emailed within 10 business days and up to three rounds of revisions (four proofs total) are included in your estimate to make sure everything is to your exact specifications.
3 | Print. We will only print with your final approval and delivery is usually within 3-4 weeks of going to print (rush services are available). From deposit to a printed and delivered invitation suite, most clients average 10-14 weeks. Once the invitation is completed, we’ll begin working through the design and printing of the day-of stationery.
