What is the price for the “standard wedding invitation suite”?
Our standard wedding invitation suite starts at $6.50 each, with a minimum order of $500. Most invitation suites end up costing between $7.50 – $10.00 after embellishments are added. Please contact us for a custom quote because each invitation suite is different.
What about other invitations?
We offer stationery options for any event. Typically stationery that does not require a response card starts at $3.00 per invitation (including envelope). However, please contact me for a custom quote. There are many factors that go into pricing for stationery including, paper selection, size, design complexity, embellishments… these are just a few items we will discuss. There is a minimum quantity of 50 invitations for non- wedding invitation suites.
How long does the order process take?
The typical invitation suite takes from 8-12 weeks from start to finish. This is dependent on how quickly you approve your proofs and we finalize the design. I recommend that we begin the process approximately 8 – 12 weeks prior to the date you want to mail out your invitations. This will ensure adequate time to refine your invitation to perfection.
If your wedding date is July 10th, you’ll want to mail your invitations out at least 6 weeks in advance (May 29th); we recommend that you begin your design process with us by March 15th.
Accompanying stationery needs will have a shorter turnaround time, approximately 2 – 3 depending on complexity.
Other invitations can be typically completed within the 4 – 6 weeks time period. If you need your order quicker, we can accommodate this but rush fees will apply.
Do you make samples?
Unfortunately because we are a custom design boutique we do not make samples. Everything is custom designed and made for our clients. However, if you have questions on paper type and colors we will glad try to accommodate paper and color requests. We want to make sure that you know that your stationery is in great hands with us. If you require a sample, a $50 sample fee will be required.
Do you proofread?
No. We will do our best to catch any mistakes; however, you are responsible for the final approval of your invitation. We can give you guidance about wording and any etiquette questions but we are not responsible for any mistakes that were not addressed in your reviews. We suggest that you have a few other people review your invitations to ensure that they are no typos or errors. If there is an error found after print, the reprint and assembly will be at your cost. We suggest that you read your invitation backwards, this is a great technique for catching typo’s.
How many proofs will I get?
For all invitations you will receive four rounds of revisions where you can make changes to color, format, font, corrections and revisions. These proofs will be provided via a private client proofing area. Additional proofs beyond these five will require a $25 fee and will be added to your final payment. If you require a fully assembled invitation, an additional 7-10 business days will be added on to your production schedule
What type of printing do you offer?
We currently offer digital press and offset printing by professional printers. We find that these options give our clients the most versatility in color options. We hope to provide letterpress printing to our clients in a cost effective way very soon.
What about envelope addressing, what options do you offer?
We offer several options for addressing your envelopes.
- We can work with one of our calligraphers to hand address your envelopes.
- We offer machined calligraphy to match your invitation font(s).
- We offer custom design envelope wraps (which are very popular now) that match the design of your invitation.
What types of payment do you accept?
Our preferred method of payment is PayPal. Once we determine your package, we will send you a link to remit payment. If you choose to pay by check, please note that this will impact your design schedule because design services will not begin until payment has been made in full. 50% of contract price is due upon contract signing and is non-refundable; the remaining balance is due upon final proof approval. Invitations will not be printed until order is paid in full and final approval on design has been confirmed.
What other embellishments for invitations do your offer?
These are just a few of the type of embellishments we offer for your invitations. Please note that these embellishments can impact the weight of your invitation for postage.

What about other matching wedding/event stationery?
We can definitely assist in making additional event stationery. We understand that in most cases these will require a shorter time frame and we’d be more than willing to help with those needs. Having your theme carry from your invitation throughout the rest of your event is a wonderful way to make your event Sparkle.
