Wedding planning is both joyful and overwhelming; it's something many people haven't experienced before. To help you with some of the questions you may have on your mind, here are some FAQs:
When should I book?
As soon as possible! I would recommend getting in touch as soon as you have booked your wedding date, to avoid disappointment.
How long will the process take?
Typically between 6-8 weeks from start to finish however, I would recommend booking in further in advance.
What are your prices?
My design fee for invitation suites is $700 AUD (£375 GBP/$525 USD), and print is charged additionally. As a rough guide, my clients usually spend $1,400+ AUD on their Wedding Invitations, with a further $800+ AUD on their wedding day items (Signage, Menus, Place-Cards, etc).
As my invitations are bespoke to each client I work with, I don’t sell suite specific samples. However, I am able to send samples of shoot stationery I have at hand, which will show paper quality and print coverage. Samples cost $20 AUD + Postage.
Please note, I cannot send these samples via my typical courier methods, and so they will be sent via a standard postal route.
I understand the print world isn't something you may be familiar with. And so, here are some notes on the different print processes I offer.
This form of printing is super special and very luxurious. It is high end and hand-crafted, and therefore, it is expensive.
With Letterpress, ink is stamped into the surface of the card, leaving a beautiful imprinted or debossed finish.
Hot foil stamping is the process of using heat and pressure to apply metallic or matte foil lettering/ illustrations to your stationery.
It's similar to letterpress, and leaves a shiny and lustrous finish for maximum visual impact.
This is the most cost-effective and common way to print stationery, where artwork is printed directly from the a computer artwork file to card. This is also how stationers achieve white text on dark coloured cardstocks.
This is the least expensive form of printing and can be combined with an element of letterpress, digital foil or white ink to create the same luxury high end finish.
