Wondering what to expect? Below is a breakdown of a typical custom invitation process.
- Design Discussion
This is where we discuss specific design ideas for your invites. Feel free to send along inspiration images, links to your venue, and/or just write out specific ideas or visions. I usually start designing the main invitation first, acting as a centerpiece for the other pieces.
- Contract & Deposit
I'll send over a contract saying I own the rights to the final designs. This contract is not meant to withhold artwork from clients, but to protect my work from being copied and distributed without my knowledge. I am happy to send along any file types the client needs.
Along with the contract I will also send over the invoice with just the design fee. This invoice needs to be paid before I can begin painting and designing.
- Design Process
After I have an idea of what you're looking for, I will put together 1-2 proofs for you to look over and approve. It will take me 2 weeks to put together the preliminary invitation proof
after our initial discussion of ideas. Each revision after that will take 3-4 days. The additional pieces of the suite follow the same time schedule.
- Final Approval
After looking over and approving all the designs/text we'll approve the final designs for print. The remainder of the invoice is due after final approval.
You can expect your printed invitations at your door two weeks post final approval.
