What is the investment for custom stationery?
Investment for invitation suites begins around $13-$15 a suite. Investment for save the dates, day-of stationery, etc. is dependent on scope.
Is design included in the proposal?
Included in the investment of custom designed pieces is the initial design of three iterations based on our discussions, your overall aesthetic and any specific requests made known in the consult part of the process. After the initial design, you'll choose a design and we'll fine tune it to align with your vision.

Yes. We are unable to craft the perfect invitation, program, custom monogram, etc. without a retainer first. The retainer is 50% off your total order. The retainer is non-refundable, and goes toward your total balance.
Will invitations arrive assembled?
Anything that requires glueing, we will handle (like envelope liners, belly bands, backers). We're happy to assemble and mail your invitations, though that does come with additional fee. Otherwise we'll package the suite up by it's components (a stack of invitations, a stack of response cards, etc.) and send them to you or your planner.
Do you provide postage?
It is your responsibility to purchase postage for your invitation suite. If you’ve hired us to handle full assembly, we will add postage to your proposal.

We are unable to determine the weight until in we have all pieces complete and ready for final production steps. Please note that square pieces, duplexed card stock and/or heavy materials such as acrylic will incur additional postage or a parcel rate.
