Frequently Asked Questions
1. How long does it take?
The custom save the date/invitation process takes about 4-6 weeks. The process includes physical samples, one round of revisions, printing, and assembly. It takes 2 weeks to produce the samples and 2 weeks to print/assemble the final order. *Letterpress orders (or special order paper) may take extra time.
2. Can you do simple, traditional invitations? Pocket invitations? Passport invitations? Acrylic signs? Koozies? Signage? Drink stirrers? Napkins?
Yes. Yes. Yes to it all! There are very little limitations in my offerings. If you are choosing to go the custom route, I will design options specifically for your wedding, style and taste. Although the website doesn't show all of the style variations, trust me when I say- I've done it all! Don't hesitate to ask if you have a unique request or just aren't sure of the possibilities. There are endless options in my portfolio. I am always willing to do new things and find ways to make your visions come to life.
3. How much does it cost?
There are so many variables to consider when discussing the price of custom wedding invitations. It all depends on: quantity, printing method, paper choice, style, extra add-ons, number of insert cards, etc. An order of 100 invitations (with base price printing and paper) starts around $700. To see what is included, check out the Custom Stationery page.
4. Where are you located?
I am based out of both Austin, TX and College Station, TX. At the moment, I work out of my home studio and hold consultations at coffee shops. I love working with local brides, but I'm not restricted by location. If you aren't located in Texas, working over email and phone is completely possible with my process.
5. What kind of printing methods do you offer?
Digital, white ink, letterpress, offset, foil stamping, and thermography.
6. Is guest address printing extra?
Yes, guest addressing is an extra cost. The return address printing on the outer envelope is included in the cost. If you would like to add digital calligraphy, it will be an extra expense.
7. When should I send out my save the dates and invitations?
Save the dates should be mailed 4-6 months ahead of your wedding. Invitations should be mailed 6-8 weeks ahead.
8. Do you assemble all invitation orders?
Any orders that require assembly are hand assembled by yours truly. Envelope liners, invitation backings, belly bands, tags, pockets, ribbons- all of it is done by hand.
9. Can I assemble my own invitations to save money?
I do not offer unassembled pieces. Assembly is included in the cost and you will receive the order fully assembled. The only thing that you will have to do is address (if you don't purchase digital calligraphy), stuff the envelopes and add postage.
10. How much postage will my invitation require?
Every invitation order is different. I always strongly recommend having one fully assembled invitation suite weighed at the post office before purchasing postage. It is better to be safe than sorry! Fun facts: Square invitations do require extra postage and just because it's a "postcard" does not mean that it only requires postcard postage. There are limitations on the maximum size for postcard postage. If you order 5x7 save the date postcards, they will require a regular stamp.
