What to expecT Designing your invitations begins with a 90 minute complimentary design consultation. Here we will discuss all the details (colors, theme, style and yes, budget) for your wedding. Your suite will be built from scratch as we select from a wide variety of invitation styles, over 200 different paper swatches and determine which printing process fits best within your needs. Once your dream invitation suite is complete, a custom quote will be provided for you to review. As you decide that this is the suite you LOVE and want to move forward, we will begin the design process. Virtual samples will be provided for you along the way so you can see how the suite will look once completed. Nothing will ever go to print unless you are 100% happy! The design process + printing and any assembly of your invitation suite takes approximately 3-5 weeks based on the complexity of your order. Specialty printing processes may take longer.
Invitations should be mailed out 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding. If itâ€™s a destination wedding, 10-12 weeks prior is recommended.
Love notE Lindsay took the ideas we had in our head and turned them into something even more beautiful than we had imagined! Her ideas & invitations are stunning and attention to detail/creativity is absolutely wonderful. We highly recommend Take Note! Invitations. - Gabrielle & Jason
QUICK TIP: Before you order, be sure to have an accurate mailing list count. It is a good idea to add 10% on to that count for any last minute extras. This will save you short order fees if you decide you need more invitations later.
InvestmenT Choosing your wedding invitations can be an exciting but overwhelming process. Donâ€™t worry, we are here to help! Our goal is to help you choose a BEAUTIFUL invitation suite that reflects your style as well as fit inside your stationery budget. Couples should set aside 4-6% of their overall wedding budget for stationery items. As all our items are a-la-carte, pricing can range from $7-$30 per suite depending on paper, printing process and embellishments. On average, our couples budget for and spend approximately $1,300 - $1,500 on 100 invitations.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN A SUITE? A standard invitation suite includes: the invitation, one details insert, response card and both mailing and response envelopes with guest address & return address printing. As all our orders are based on style, quantity, papers & print process chosen, please schedule your complimentary design consultation for a custom quote. See you soon! WWW.TAKENOTECREATIONS.COM
QuestionS Q: Do you require a deposit? A: Yes. I require a 75% deposit up front to start your design and send proofs. The remainder of your balance is due when you pick up your invitations.
Q: Will you help us with wording? A: Yes. Wording is very unique to each couple, so I offer resources to view examples. Feel free to mix & match from those examples or provide wording youâ€™ve found elsewhere.
Q: Will we see a proof before you print our invitations? A: Yes, we provide digital mock ups of your invitation suite in the colors you chose so you can see how the entire ensemble will look once it prints. Nothing ever goes to print until we have your final OK.
Q: What printing options do you offer? A: We offer standard digital CMYK and white printing, Foil Stamping, Letterpress, Thermography, Screen Print, UV Printing and Hand Calligraphy.
Q: Do you print our invitations yourself ? A: No, unlike some small business who print at home, we believe in providing only the best. We have chosen a high quality, reliable paper supplier who also serves as our print house. All items will be produced on professional printing press.
