OUR CUSTOM CLIENT DESIGN PROCESS

Each year we can only take on a limited number of clients for exclusive, custom wedding invitations. As a custom client, you are taken through our design process.

  1. You will have the opportunity to meet with your designer, Christa, at which time you will view samples personally selected for you and have the opportunity to take advantage of her creative eye and experience.
  2. You will have unlimited access to design and etiquette counseling guaranteeing that the design and wording of your wedding suite of invitations will be absolutely error-free.
  3. You will receive perfectly assembled, beautifully detailed invitations that will save you time.
  4. You will receive “grande” sized invitations made with deluxe materials; the substantial weight and rich surface of these works of elegance and craftsmanship will definitely make an impact on your invited guests.
  5. You will also receive a personalized guest list to enable easy tracking of your guests’ replies.

OUR INVITATION SUITE PRICING

When you hold one of Christa’s beautifully produced masterpieces in your hands and run your fingers over the surface, you are taken back to a time when printing was a craft that professionals took time to perfect.

Pricing will be affected by the paper and envelopes you select and the elements of your preferred design. You will also have your choice of a variety of embellishments including envelope liners, insert cards, ribbons, enclosures, calligraphy and extra colors.

This means that the final price is very much within your control. Our custom clients can choose to spend from $5,000 to $15,000 on their custom-designed Wedding Invitation Suite.

  2. We send you an estimate.
  3. Upon your approval of the estimate, a signed contract and a 50% deposit is needed to begin the design process.
  4. A personalized timeline is sent to you outlining what to expect over the coming months.
  5. Design samples are emailed to you and paper samples are sent by mail. We then collaboratively modify the design until you are satisfied, with no limit on revisions.
  6. All materials are ordered and the invitation suite is printed. Each individual item is reviewing after printing to ensure there are no imperfections.

INVITATION INQUIRY

 

I looked through books and books of invitations and met with different invitation designers in NYC. No one could help me find something that seemed to fit the wedding weekend we were planning. Christa knew all the right questions to ask and very quickly after that conversation she presented me with these stunning invitations. Working with Christa has really been a dream and she is so easy to communicate with.

We went to Boston, Chicago, San Francisco & Washington D.C., thinking only big cities would have what we were looking for. Our Daughter and son-in-law met with her after our phone conversation, they were so impressed with the work of her creative mind, talented hands and extraordinary vision. She helped choose the perfect calligraphy font, ink color and stamps and YES, our guests noticed each and every detail.

Christa is absolutely wonderful to work with and she is very talented. I had looked at local shops and online for my wedding invitations and had a really hard time finding something that pulled my ideas together. After a phone conversation with Christa, I had a number of mock-ups for invitations. I got so many comments on Christa’s work – even my calligrapher who said “it was the most beautiful invitation suite” she had seen!
