Frequently Asked Questions
We pull from past work to create sample packs. So, they cannot be customized.
The Wedding Collection is fully customizable with artful elements such as fonts, colors, and even illustration add-ons. It’s an extremely easy and streamlined process that allows it to be offered at a lower price point. The collection is a good fit for 99% of my couples. If you’re looking for something more out of the box, we can start from scratch with a completely custom design. I take on a very limited number of custom projects each year. So, inquire early to book your spot.
I recommend having a pretty accurate count before placing your invitation order. Formulas are only an estimation. Make sure to count each household instead of each individual guest. Don’t forget to include extras for keepsakes, for your photographer to capture on your wedding day, and in case you add anyone to your list. It can be more expensive to order more invitations later if you don’t have enough.
Double envelopes are used for more traditional weddings. The outer envelope is used to protect the suite and is addressed to your guests. The inner envelope is unsealed and includes only your guests’ names.
Absolutely! We can create anything to coordinate the other pieces in your suite. Think favor tags, cocktail napkins, koozies, etc. Send us a message, and we’ll put together a quote.
Nope! Just pay for a venue illustration or hand drawn monogram one time, and then we can use it throughout any or all of your pieces.
Wedding Collection: Because of the quick turnaround time, payment is due in full up front.
Custom Invitations: A 50% non-refundable retainer is due to book your spot. The remaining balance is due before your pieces go to print.
You will receive digital proofs of your design to be able to provide revisions. Your digital signature will be due before sending your pieces to print. There are no surprises!

Custom: 3 rounds of proofs are included in your order.
Additional revisions are billed at $50 each.
We do not offer hard copy proofs. You will receive digital proofs, and you can purchase a sample pack if you want to see paper and printing examples in person.

Digital Printing: The most common printing method. High quality printers are used to leave a smooth finish on the paper.
Letterpress Printing: A luxurious type of relief printing where a plate is used to make an ink impression into the paper.
Foil Stamping: Creates the same impression in the paper as letterpress printing. However, foil printing uses metallic foil instead of ink.
We use the most appropriate paper choice for your selected printing method. All paper choices are offered in either white or ivory and single-thick or double-thick.
We strive to represent the colors shown on our website as accurately as possible, but we cannot guarantee that the printed color will look exactly like the screen color.

Postage depends on the size and weight of your finished invitation suite. I can provide estimates once your invitations are printed, but I recommend taking a complete suite to your local post office to get an accurate cost.
