Designing your invitation and matching paperie is going to be so fun! I’ve set in place a process to follow to ensure everything goes smoothly and is enjoyable.

Here’s how it works!



Let’s become friends…

Over a cup of coffee here in Palm Beach or via email, phone or FaceTime, getting to know my clients is so important to me! During our initial conversations we will talk about all the good stuff; your fiancé, your wedding plans (all the details please!) we will discuss budget and touch on different printing and design methods to see if anything catches your interest. Feel free to bring pictures of inspiration, colors from the wedding palette or send me an invite to your wedding Pinterest board to further help the creative juices flow.


I’ll send you the numbers…

Once I have a good idea of what you’re looking for I will send over a quote and contract. The quote will include all the costs I can foresee. Remember, the initial quote is just a starting point to help you budget accordingly. As we add items or change printing methods, the numbers may change. I will always do my best to stay within your budget but the quote is also flexible. I believe communication is key! So I will always make sure you are aware of rising costs before anything is final.


A 50% deposit of the design quote is due before we begin and the remaining 50% will be due before going to print.


Let the fun begin!

As soon as I have your contract and deposit the work begins! I will draft up three designs based on our discussions and send the sketches your way via email. Creativity takes time so please be patient and allow 3-5 days for your designs to arrive.

You will get to pick your favorite and from there we can begin revising and fine-tuning. Unlike other companies, I will perfect your invitation with as many revisions as necessary!


If you decide to add other items to the job such as menus, programs, place cards, etc. the same design concept will be used throughout. If you desire a different concept for these items, then a separate design fee and quote will be generated.


Print and Send!

Once everything is perfect, I will send out a physical sample for you to approve of (with the exception of letterpress jobs.) This sample is complimentary to get you excited about what’s to come. If you need or want additional samples, it is $10/sample.


Once you have it in your hands, it is imperative that you proofread, over and over again! Give it to your mom, sister, brother and distant cousins to make sure all wording is perfect. Once we go to print there is no going back!


Please allow 2-3 weeks from the date we go to print to receive your invitations. Final invitations will be sent mounted but not assembled. I am happy to assemble items for a small additional fee of $1.00/per invitation.


For all clients living in the US, your big box of happiness will be shipped USPS 2-3 day Priority mail for a cost of $30 (paper is heavy!) If you are in the Palm Beach area and would rather meet somewhere to have them hand delivered, it would be my pleasure!


For International clients, the shipping charges will depend on location.
