What can I expect to pay?

All work is completely custom, therefore no two projects are the same. Pricing depends on the particular materials used, and the complexity of the design. Contact us to discuss your project. We can work together to achieve your design vision within your budget.

What is the production time?
Depending on the size and complexity of your project you can expect completion 2-6 weeks after you have signed off on your final proof. Rush orders are accepted with an additional charge.
Do you offer envelope addressing?
Yes, we offer digitally printed addressing.
Can I see a proof on my stationery before it is printed?
Definitely. We never print an order without your final approval. All proofs are sent to you via e-mail in jpeg or pdf format. We believe in 100% customer satisfaction.
Do I have to come in for an appointment?
Not at all. We work with customers all over the US and abroad. If you are not local to the Montgomery area, a consultation can be done via phone, Skype, or email.
When should I mail my invitations?
You should mail your wedding invitations 6-8 weeks before your wedding. If you are having a destination wedding, 10-12 weeks is necessary to allow your guests time to secure travel arrangements. Less formal events such as a birthday party need just 4-6 weeks.
What if I don't see what I am looking for on your site?

Wedding

When should we contact you for a consultation?
You can schedule a consultation at any point between to 4-10 months before your wedding date, but we suggest that you give yourself enough time to decide on wedding colors, budget, and design style.
How long does it take to make custom invitation?
We should start the process at least 3-5 months before the wedding. The design and production stages take about 1.5-2 months total.
What are your prices for wedding invitations?
Because everything I do is custom, the price is different for every invitation set. The style of invitation, types of papers used, number of inserts, number of layers, size of invitation, types of printing, number of envelopes, use of ribbons and quantity all impact price. The best thing to do is to determine your real budget and we can work together to create a beautiful invitation.
How many invitations should we order?
When you have a solid count of the number of invitations needed, we suggest you add an additional 5-10. It’s very expensive to make and additional 4 or 5 more after your initial order.
When should we mail our Save-the-Dates?
Save-the-Dates are typically sent out anywhere from 6 months to a year before the wedding date. Destination weddings and weddings on holiday weekends should definitely consider an earlier mailing so guests can make their plans early.
What should we use for an RSVP date?
RSVP deadlines are typically 2-3 weeks before the wedding. This leaves time both for the guests to determine their plans but also leaves enough time for you to finalize seating arrangements.
Can you design other pieces for my wedding?
For your reception we can create seating charts, table numbers, menus, bar menus, placecards, signage, favor tags, etc.
When should I mail my invitations?
You should mail your wedding invitations 6-8 weeks before your wedding. If you are having a destination wedding, 10-12 weeks is sufficient.
What if I don't see what I am looking for on your site?
Absolutely! We can create a custom invitation to meet your design and style needs according to your budget. Contact us for more information.
