Custom Shower Invitations and Announcements

Christa Alexandra specializes in custom invitations and announcements. Custom invitations differ from other shower invitations or announcement because we spend a few weeks to a few months working together on the design. We will create a unique piece of stationery with your thoughts or theme in mind.

Not sure if custom is what you’re looking for? We offer an array of more budget friendly options to choose from in our Stationery Shop available to customize and purchase.

If you are interested in custom design besides wedding stationery, such as business cards, marketing materials, etc – please email me here or via our contact page to receive a quote.

What’s Included?

Here’s a little about the process and what is included:

  • After initial contact, you will receive a questionnaire; upon evaluation, we will schedule time to discuss your wants and expectations
  • Once you feel comfortable moving forward, we begin the design process which requires a deposit of 50% of the final cost (to be credited towards the final balance)
  • Next, we will send through a general schedule outlining what you should be expecting to review over the coming weeks or couple months
  • Designing begins, a digital proof (mockup of what it will look like) is sent to you and samples of paper are mailed via the post
  • Upon your approval, we modify and then print accordingly
  • Finally, your package arrives in the mail approximately two weeks before you need to send it out, so you have a few days to address and stamp. Generally invitations are sent out 1 month before a shower.

The biggest perk about having invitations or announcements designed is that they are perfectly one-of-a-kind. They are special-made for you big event.

How Much?

Given the differing customization options, prices will range. To help get a better idea, we can give you a starting price point for both typical digital (flat) printing as well as letterpress printing.

For a quantity of 50 custom shower invitations, includes envelopes:

  • Digital (Flat) Printing :: starting at $400
  • Letterpress (1-color) :: starting at $850

Additional materials such as party signage and thank you notes can be designed with the same theme as the invitation for an additional cost but pricing varies depending upon your needs.

For a beautiful design, without going the custom route try looking through our pre-designed Wedding Invitations in our online Stationery Shop where 100 invitations start at $550.

Custom vs. Stock

Keep in mind that custom design is starting from scratch and we typically spend a month to 2 months working together to complete a perfect cohesive look for your shower or announcement. Since your event is completely unique, we create your invitation/announcement and order materials just for you – therefore we’re not able to stock up and gain the economies of scale that other larger businesses take advantage of.
