The Process

Stationery is no small investment. That’s why we offer a free consultation and provide you with a proposal that’s tailored to you and your wedding. Our Semi-Custom Process eliminates overwhelm and uncertainty by providing you with a stationery expert to walk you through all your stationery details from start to finish.

 
 

01.
Select your design

 

Browse our available designs here and select a collection design that fits your wedding aesthetic. Our designs can be customized with paper choices, ink colors, envelope options, and even custom artwork, depending on the suite.

 
 
 

02.
Request a quote

 

Request a quote by completing our Inquiry Form. We will gather some of the big details such as your wedding date, estimated guest count, and estimated budget for invitations. After we receive your questionnaire, we will reach out to set a time for your free consultation.

 
 
 

03.
Talk to an expert

 

We believe that before you hand over your hard-earned money, you should talk to a real person. We know you will have questions and we are here to walk you through the process. We will help you make the most of your budget and ensure the highest quality of paper goods for your wedding.

 
 
 

04.
book our services

 

After our consultation, we will send custom proposals and contracts for you to sign. Rather than paying one lump sum, as on ready-to-purchase sites, we break your quote into three payments. We can also include additional stationery such as Save the Dates, Menus, Place Cards, Table Numbers, etc. Then we will add your project to our production calendar. We are a small studio and only take on a limited number of clients at a time. It is best to inquire early to be sure we can accommodate your ideal mailing date for your wedding.

 

Print Methods

As a small design studio, we pride ourselves on offering the best luxury print methods available. We print with letterpress in-house on our nearly 100-year-old press. We love the look and feel of tactile print methods. While letterpress and foil printing are our favorites, we may be able to accommodate custom requests as well.

 
 
Letterpress printing

Letterpress

Letterpress is created the old fashioned way with plates that are inked and then pressed into paper. This creates a beautiful textural impression and feels luxurious to the touch. Ink colors are matte and soft.

Foil printing

Foil

Foil printing is created the same way as letterpress, but rather than ink, a metallic foil sheet is used. This creates some impression on the paper and a beautiful metallic finish to the design. It feels luxurious and creates a beautiful visual.

Crane lettra Cotton paper

Cotton paper is a classic and we use Crane Lettra as our letterpress paper of choice. It creates a deep impression with letterpress and comes in different weights (110# and 220#) and colors (Bright White, Pearl White, and Natural White).

Handmade Paper

Handmade paper is a true beauty with its imperfect texture and organic edges. Handmade paper can be difficult to come by, and may require additional production time. Ask us how we can incorporate handmade paper into your suite.
