I love weddings - attending them and designing for them! When I got married, I wanted my wedding and everything about it to be as individual and stylish as I was. As a professional graphic designer, I was excited to be able to design my own invitations, enclosure cards, and programs to reflect my vision for my special day. I’m just as enthusiastic about helping you design stationery items for your special day. I will work hard to capture your style and vision for your special day and translate that into the engagement announcements, invitations, save-the-dates, table number cards, programs, and any other items you may need for that day. I have included some samples of my work in this little booklet. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them.

The Process

The initial consultation is an information gathering session. I will ask questions in order to discern what type of event you will have and what you are looking for in terms of engagement announcements, save-the-date cards, invitations, etc. This meeting will need to take place a minimum of 5 to 6 months ahead of your special event. Wedding and special event invitations are sent out 6 to 8 weeks before your special day. The printing process takes about two additional weeks and you will want to have enough time to get your invitations ready to mail. So, we will need to finalize your design(s) before that time. We may go through a couple of proofs before you are happy with the final design(s). Save-the-dates are sent a minimum of 4-6 months prior to your wedding, but if you are holding a destination wedding, it may be best to send them 12 months or more in advance of your special day. If you’ve booked your venue and date, book your stationer. Avoid rush charges and stress by starting the process early

Pricing

My pricing is a little different than other wedding stationers. I charge a design fee for the items I design and get quotes from a press* for the printing costs. In the end, my pricing added to the printing costs is comparable to most higher end wedding stationery companies. However, by choosing me to design your items, you have complete freedom to customize your designs rather than just changing colors or fonts on a pre-designed invitation or stationery item. If you would rather not work with the press I have chosen, I am able to give you the option to have the items I have designed printed at a press/printer of your choice. Or I will allow you to print the items I have designed on paper and envelopes you have purchased yourself. I always provide a detailed estimate of my services for approval before starting a project. I adhere to my estimates unless project specifications change. For more details or to request an estimate, contact me today! Phone: (269) 471-2545 Email: info @ spicykumquatdesigns.com
