We begin with a complimentary design consultation. In person is preferred (I'm in Fishers, IN) but telephone and skype are always options for out of town and busy brides! We’ll discuss colors, themes, paper and anything you’ve collected for inspiration. I hope to get a thorough grasp of your personal style and what you've envisioned for your big day. We also discuss the basic stationery packages, printing options and go over the details you'll need including items and quantities.
After getting to know each other and delivery of the initial quote, you'll decide if I'm the designer for you and (hopefully!) we'll move onto the design phase. Within three weeks you will receive 2 design options to choose from. A mock-up fee of $100 is collected to begin this process, and credited towards your full package once you select a design and we move onto production.
The design process takes up to three weeks. Then refining of the design begins and we'll make any text & content changes you need up until you're ready for production. Production typically takes 2-3 weeks (3-4 weeks for letterpress stationery). And don't forget to build in delivery or shipping time!
For the average bride that means starting the design phase around 8 months prior to the event if we're designing save the dates. If no save the dates are required, it's still about a two month process from conception to when final production is complete. If you require an accelerated schedule, please inquire directly! Rush options may be available.
