Your invitation suite not only sets the tone for your big day, but often is cherished long after the event has come and gone as a keepsake and reminder of a special time.
I would love to work with you and create an invitation that reflects your personality and style.
Once we settle on a design concept that you are love I hand draw each element of your invitation suite using water colors, fine black drawing pens, and calligraphy ink.
Each invitation suite is completely customized - you can choose to use all or some of the services described below.
Save the date cards- I charge an hourly design fee of $40/hour for the time that it takes to design the your save the date card. A typical save the date card could take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours to design, time would depend on the complexity of the design.
Invitation and response card - The base design fee is $350. This includes the design for an invitation and two sided response card. After an initial consultation I create a mock up drawing, we revise it, then I create the final version.
Additional items for the Invitation Suite - I can also design reception cards, maps, information cards and other inserts to go along with your suite for an hourly design fee of $40/hour.
Envelopes and addressing- I can help you find envelopes that beautifully pair with your invitation. The envelope cost is passed directly to you, with no extra charges. I address envelopes in calligraphy for $4.50 each.
Program - I charge an hourly design fee of $40/hour for the time that it takes to design the program. A typical program can take anywhere from 2 to 6 hours to design, time varies according to the complexity of the design requested, and how much information is included on the program.
Thank you cards - Using the unique design from your invitation suite I can design a thank you card. Costs for the cards vary depending on how many cards are ordered.
Printing costs- I can print your invitation suite at my local printer on 80 pound natural linen or cotton paper for a $30 fee in addition to printing costs. Or you can choose to have an electronic file of the final draft of the invitation suite sent to you to print where you choose.
**Turn around time for custom projects is usually 5 months, depending upon availability. Rush orders can sometimes be accommodated for an additional fee.
***After an initial consultation I will create a project proposal for you, 30% of which is due before work on the project begins.
