Fill out the contact form so I can get to know you better! I will be in touch within 24 hours to set up a complimentary consultation at the studio. We will go over all your questions, talk about the design process, timing, wording, addressing, and so much more! 

What is the first step?

02

I recommend scheduling a consultation any time between seven to nine months prior your wedding and ordering shortly after. Save the dates should be mailed anywhere from six to twelve months before your wedding. Your wedding invitation suite should be mailed eight to ten weeks before and destination weddings should be twelve weeks before.

When should I order and mail my wedding stationery?

01

Yes, of course! Email me to set up a time to chat about your project.

What if I don’t live in the Twin Cities? Can we still work together?

04

This is such a tricky question because so many factors play into pricing a custom suite. Based on quantity, print method, the number of pieces, and embellishments, costs can vary significantly. With the custom design process, pricing is unique to each couple and project. Please know that pricing is competitive and I can work with any budget. 

What do invitations cost?

03

I will put together a detailed proposal for your consideration, reflective of the pieces we discussed in our consultation. Nothing is set in stone, so we can certainly adjust before I begin the design process. Once you are ready to move forward, the next steps are a deposit and signed agreement from you and a timeline for the rest of the process from me.

The Proposal

02

It all begins with a conversation—discuss design elements, pull samples, find what really speaks to you We’ll look at paper and ink swatches, discuss print methods, and collaborate to create a custom experience. This is the perfect opportunity to learn as much as I can about your wedding and personal style. My goal is to create something beautiful and one of a kind. The end product is a wedding suite that tells your story through paper. I can’t wait to see what we come up with!

The Consultation

01

the Process

When everything is perfect and ready to go, I will move into production. Any details, timing, shipments, etc. will be communicated at this time, and the final payment will be due. Printed pieces will be delivered to you once production is complete.

I will then begin the creation of your wedding stationery. When all the pieces have been designed, I’ll share a digital proof with you via email, in PDF format. At this point, we can adjust and make any necessary revisions until we arrive at the perfect design. Three revisions are included in your package.

The Design Stage

03

A couple months prior to your wedding, let’s schedule a time to chat through your coordinating pieces. We’ll talk about items like programs, table numbers, menus, escort cards, and thank-you notes. I want to ensure the entire wedding coordinates, down to the final details!
