STEP 1: GET IN TOUCH
Call, text, email, send a carrier pigeon... whatever you gotta do to my attention. Just let me know that you're interested in my invitation services.
STEP 2: THE DETAILS
Next I will send you a questionnaire form where I will determine a creative direction for your invitations based on your ideas, style and budget. Fabric swatches, pictures from magazines/pinterest are great sources of inspiration.
Be prepared to discuss the quantity of stationery pieces needed as well as the information you would like to convey to your guests. We do not have to meet in person if you do not wish to do so. Meeting in person will allow you to see samples of my custom work and allow you to get to know me, however I work with couples from across the world. A price quote is then prepared based on your specific project requirements.
It is my goal to design the invitation and coordinating elements of your dreams while staying within your budget. If you are happy with the consultation and quote, I will then ask you to sign a contract and to pay a non-refundable $100 deposit.
STEP 3: DESIGN TIME
After you have paid the deposit and signed the contract, the design process will proceed. I will send you a timeline of the design process so we can stay on track with deadlines. You will then receive multiple electronic full color proofs. I will be able make any necessary changes to the wording, graphics or overall design of your invitation suite. We prefer changes via email as it reduces revision errors. Once your changes have been made, you will receive another round of electronic proofs via email.
STEP 4: PROOFING
It will be your responsibility to review and confirm that every design detail is to your satisfaction, including the spelling, grammar and punctuation. Please carefully check your design files during every step of this process.
After signing off on the final approval, if you choose to reprint for any reason, you are responsible for all of the reproduction costs. Once the signed approval document has been received, Andi's Invites is not responsible for any errors or omissions on the final printed documents, however we promise that no design will go to print unless you are completely satisfied.
STEP 5: PRINTING + DELIVERY
When you have given final approval, the printing and production process begins. This step takes about two weeks. All of the printing and all of the finishing services such as cutting, scoring and folding are completed in-house.
Assembly and stuffing services are also available for an additional fee. I oversee every detail of the production to ensure that your project will exceed your expectations. I can’t wait to work with you!
