We have been working closely with couples for over a dozen years and understand it can be overwhelming to plan a wedding. We strive to make invitation ordering an enjoyable and stress-free part of the process. We pride ourselves on our friendly, experienced and collaborative approach to creating stationery that conveys the spirit of your wedding. We’re always available to answer questions and provide guidance along the way.
1) SELECT A DESIGN.
Scroll through our invitation collection and note the one or two design(s) that you prefer.
2) CUSTOMIZE THE DETAILS.
Select the fonts and ink colors to personalize your design. If you have a particular color you would like, send us a swatch and we can mix the ink to match. We’re happy to advise on font options if you prefer some guidance in this area. If you are choosing a design with images, please request our image catalog and we can work with you to select the graphic motifs that will complement your design.
3) TALK TO US.
Contact us with your design preferences, components you will need (invitation, response cards, etc…) as well as the overall quantity. We will send you an estimate for the order and answer any initial questions you may have. If you are in the NYC area and would like to schedule an appointment, we can do so. If you are not able to visit, we would be happy to send you our step-by-step guide to ordering invitations. This document will walk you through all of the steps we cover when meeting and answer many questions.
4) PLACE YOUR ORDER.
If you decide to place the order, please send us the final wording for each element in your stationery suite (we can help with this, if you like) as well as the 50% deposit. We’ll then begin the design process by emailing you your first set of designs to review. You will note any changes to make and we will revise accordingly. Designs are emailed to you as pdf files to make the proofing process easy.
After you triple check the details and sign-off on your design, we will order the plates and jump back to the 19th Century to print your invitations on our antique presses. The balance will be due on your order and we will ship you your lovely custom invitations.
