CUSTOM ORDER

The entire start-to-finish process for a custom wedding stationery order takes 10-12 weeks. The below timeline will depend on the complexity of your order and how long the proofing stage takes.

Please fill out our custom wedding stationery contact form here so we can get a clear idea of what you're looking for. Once we receive this we can put together your individual proposal and will be in touch within 2-3 working days.

Once you are happy with everything in your proposal, we will organise a meeting or phone call with you. This will allow us to get to know you and your partner, what you are looking for in terms of your stationery and give you a chance to ask us any questions you might have. After our chat, we will send you an outline of
everything included in your order, a timeline and an invoice for the 50% deposit.

As soon as we receive your deposit, we can start designing! We will get to work on some initial sketches/ moodboards. This will include rough drawings of any custom illustration work (if requested) which is to be included in your design.
We will look at some colour combinations and font styles to suit your wedding theme. Please allow
2 weeks for this stage of the design process to be completed.

Once you are happy with the direction of your stationery, we can start work on the final illustrations and design.
Please note that once we start the illustration process, the artwork cannot be changed without incurring
an additional cost, but we can amend colours and small details. Please allow
3-4 weeks for this stage
of the design process. Once ready, we will send you your first set of proofs.

We allow for two rounds of changes from when you receive your first proof. Any further changes will incur a cost of €15 per round. When you have approved your stationery, we will send your artwork to print and organise envelopes plus any extra add-ons. Printing time usually takes up to 2 weeks, depending on the complexity of your order. At this point we will send you your final invoice requesting the last 50% payment. Once we have received payment we will organise shipping or a collection of your order.
