MORE THAN PAPER

You've clicked on this page because you are about to get married and are interested in truly unique wedding invitations, calligraphy, day-of-items, or all of the above. I'm so glad that I can walk with you on this journey. Unlike places with semi-custom or premade templates, working with me is a fun and personal experience. I'll be there with you through the whole process because I think communication is key in order to create something that will make your heart flutter and your guests' eyes go wide with wonder and amazement at gorgeous invitations they've never seen anywhere before. Each piece is completely custom and made specifically for you and your special event. I create the design, calligraphy, and illustrations from scratch according to the venue, love story, or favorite items. I offer design and full-service printing for each suite and only provide the best for YOU. Because I use the best materials and printing processes, you are able to keep these pieces for generations to come! I started this business because of my grandparents' undying love and my heart for paper and letters. I have letters that have been passed down to me that were my great grandparents. What a precious memory to share with your kids and grandkids! My invitations are more than paper. They help tell your love story with meticulous calligraphy and whimsical illustrations. 


PROCESS

To begin the process, please fill out the questionnaire. If you have any questions, we can set up a time to Facetime, Skype, or talk over the phone. I will send you a quote coordinating with your questionnaire answers the same day. Design does not begin—and you are not a client—until the retainer has been paid and a contract has been signed. The process lasts between 5-10 weeks and suites start around $1,500. All of this depends on what methods and items you want. My design pricing includes unlimited sketches and artwork and up to 5 proofs. You will receive beautifully branded files, a contract, and proofs. After you approve the designs, printing and addressing will begin. All 3 piece suites include envelopes and assembly: stacking, stuffing, sealing, and stamping! This process is to relieve the stress for you. As someone who is getting married, you have more important things to deal with other than addressing your own envelopes, such as dress shopping and cake tasting! I should also remind you that thinking outside of the box is totally allowed. I love experimenting with different processes and materials. If you want a special item, let's talk about it and find a way to execute it to enhance your wedding!


I start with a loose sketch for placement to get an idea of what artwork and calligraphy we are going to be working with.

From the sketch to the mockups, you tell me what you like and don't like. I create the pieces that you'd prefer and design them in a way that ties everything together.

As you can see the physical pieces are exactly what the mockup looks. From design to print, I make sure what you see on the screen will look the same, if not better, in person.

Example: This suite consisted of a duplex cotton paper invitation, cotton paper RSVP card, cotton paper details card, charcoal return address rubber stamp, gray envelope with white liner, and white RSVP envelope. Not pictured is the hand addressed calligraphy on the front of the envelope, which was done in gold ink.

*You may notice the term "duplex" in the questionnaire. This simply means that the paper is thicker and allows for the back of the invitation to have a design or colored backer if preferred.
