custom stationery

designed for your unique love story

We believe the invitation suite should serve as a reflection of you and your partner. After all, paper goods set the tone for the entire wedding! Through our full-service design process, we artfully and intentionally craft refined stationery suites that capture the unique details that make guests say, “Oh, that is so you!”

PAPER GOODS THAT ARE TRUE TO YOU

HOW WE DO IT

Discovery

The custom process begins by exploring which solutions best express your style and vision, while also meeting your budgetary and practical needs. After your initial inquiry, we’ll put together a mood board and quote out some of the options available. We can adjust the options as needed, and then we’ll make it official with a signed contract and 50% retainer.

design

We will perfect your dream invitation design through two different phases: sketching and proofing. Initial sketches explore how your style and vision can be represented through layout and overall feel. When we land on a direction, we will then create final artwork and present you with your first proof. Through rounds of feedback and revision, we will finalize all the details and prepare for print.

production

The next steps are all about craftsmanship and attention to detail, when the magic really happens. With all your stunning materials in hand, it’s time to bring your suite to life! When cards are printed, envelope addressing is complete, and embellishments are prepared, we assemble your suites. With everything stuffed, sealed, and ready to go, we package them up with care and send them off to you!

material and craft

We believe the tactile experience of a suite is just as important as its visual elements. Because of this, material selection plays a large role in our custom designs. We work with top-quality papers, including handmade, and offer a variety of premium printing methods like digital, white-ink, letterpress, foil, and embossing.

We choose all materials, processes, and embellishments carefully, based on your aesthetic and budget. Every suite is artfully designed, crafted, and assembled with years of experience and education in our back pocket.

 
 
 

investment

Our process is designed to find solutions that work best for your style and needs. So even if some dream elements are out of reach, we’ll come up with alternatives that make your heart and pocketbook sing.

All custom stationery projects require a minimum investment of $2500, regardless of quantity or suite size. The average couple spends between $4000–$6000, including save the dates, invitation suites, and day-of details. Payment plans are standard for all orders.

frequently asked questions

how does payment work?

We handle payment on a project-by-project basis, meaning you won’t have to pay for invitation suites while working on save the dates. 50% of the project total is due upon booking (or start of the project), with the rest due upon completion, prior to shipping.

With day-of stationery, 100% payment is due upon print approval.

what is the turnaround time?

Making a suite that’s perfectly tailored to you takes some time! Our typical timeline for custom stationery is 12–15 weeks, but will vary a little depending on your printing methods and embellishments.

When you officially book with us, we will send over a calendar for your project with deadlines and important dates marked!

do you help with etiquette/wording?

Absolutely! Honestly, wedding etiquette can get confusing if you aren’t familiar with it, so we are able to provide wording for you based on your circumstances and level of formality. If you want to dig into etiquette yourself though, take a look at our free envelope etiquette and invitation wording guides!

do you offer assembly?

Because we want to make your experience as stress-free as possible, we take care of your paper goods from start to finish. Assembly is automatically included in our custom process, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

can you also design day-of stationery?

We are also able to tackle menus, place and escort cards, signage, programs, welcome booklets, and other day-of pieces for couples who have also ordered invitations through us. Let us know you’re interested while working on invites and we’ll talk options!

can you send me samples of past work?

If you need that tactile touch, we can definitely send you some of our past work! Sample packs are $40, and include multiple suites in the style and paper choices you’re looking for. Even better? That $40 goes towards your first payment when you decide to book!
