Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q  – What types of projects do you work on? 

We're able to design wedding and event papers for many purposes, but typically the nature of our work focuses on wedding announcements. Traditionally, this includes Save the Dates, and Invitation Suites comprised of an invitation card, reply card, and corresponding return and recipient addressed envelopes. If you're searching for non-wedding-related design services, please take a look at our sister studio, Ensemble, focused primarily on branding and a broader scope of creative work.

 

Q  – Are you available to take on new clients? 

Each month we collaborate with a limited number of clients on their wedding papers. We accept new clients by reservation, allowing all parties to plan in advance. 

 

Q  – How long does the process take? 

Timelines depend on your selected approach and printing method, but Save the Dates typically span a three to six week window and require Invitations four to eight weeks. Our workflow requires that our clients provide timely feedback and design selections, and prepare content in advance of their booked start date.  

 

Q  – How much do your invitations cost? 

Sample Quotes are provided on each Approach page, but please get in touch via our Inquiries form for a custom price estimate. 

 

Q  – When should I mail my invitations?

Wedding etiquette advises six weeks prior to the wedding date, but we suggest at least six to eight weeks in advance, and preferably eight to twelve is possible. You may determine this date by working backwards from the date in which you would like to finalize your headcount and secure seating charts, escort cards, etc. Set your "RSVP by" by date (roughly a month before the wedding ) and then allow several weeks for your guests to reply and several weeks for the mail to be delivered. Allow additional time for a destination wedding or weddings with many traveling from afar.

 

Q  – Do you handle mailing the invitations?

We do not handle the mailing or assembly of our invitation suites, which are shipped to the client safely packed and separated by piece.

 

Q  – What kind of stamps should I use?

For our flat printed invitation suites we recommend a single Forever stamp; for suites that include a number of extra items or increased paper weight, we are happy to provide information about additional mailing costs, which are calculated based on the total weight of the suite.

 

Q  – How do you ship? Do you ship internationally? What is the cost?

UPS is our preferred and only carrier for shipping all of our packaged goods. International shipping can cost between $100-$200, and we also encourage you to keep taxes and duties in mind when reviewing costs. 

 

Q  – Can I purchase your designs as a template to print myself?

We do not release or license digital versions of our artwork for copyright reasons.

 

Q  – Do you offer wedding websites or digital save the dates?

We do not offer digital save the dates or invitations. Our availability to collaborate on website designs varies greatly depending on our availability, but please contact us with the details of what you are looking for.

 

Q  – What is your order minimum, and what quantities may I order at?

Our price quotes typically start at 20 pieces, and you may order in factors of five. (20, 25, 30, etc.)
