How to Order
We’re here to guide you through the tedious process of paper selection by simplifying it step by step. We know some of you would prefer to tell us your needs rather than learn the process and all the options you have. If you’d like us to simplify it even more, contact us to schedule a phone call. Our design process is in three phases – Selection & Customization, Design & Production, and Delivery.

Phase 1 / Selection & Customization
Chances are, you’ve already looked through our Collections and have narrowed it down. If you haven’t, head over there now to decide which one is perfect for you! While each individual collection is designed to be used together, you aren’t limited to one collection. If you’d like your Save the Dates from The Garden, your invitation suite from York, and your day of menus or programs from The Terrace, we’ll gladly provide them for you!
The Design Guide will provide you with a price range of your stationery based on paper and printing choices, customizations such as spot calligraphy or monograms, and add-ons like wax seals and vellum wraps. We try to accommodate every budget and timeline which is why items from the Collections are so great! Once you have finalized your design decisions, browse the Price List to determine your rough total investment (starting at $7.50 per 4 piece set for 100 invitations). We strongly encourage you to Book a Phone Consultation with us at this point for 100% confidence in your design decisions!
25% Non-Refundable Retainer Due to Book
Once we have provided you with your final quote, you’re ready to book! We will issue an invoice and contract to you to secure your project in our calendar. We have a three part payment structure (25% non-refundable retainer at time of booking, 50% due at start of design customization phase, 25% due at start of print production phase). The shipping is billed separately as the final release of the project to you.
Phase 2 / Design & Production
Our first step after contract and initial payments are completed is determining your paper timeline and event information which dictates your wording. We will assist you with etiquette and other guidance to help make this as smooth a process as possible. Here, we also go over information for any additional customizations such as event venue sketches, spot calligraphy, monograms, and more.
Design & Proofing
50% Due at Start of This Phase
Now we bring those beautiful dreams to life! If you’ve simply chosen from the Collections with no add-on custom options, then your first proof will arrive in 3-5 business days. Your design process comes with two proof phases (each proof revision adds 1-2 business days). Additional proofs are $75 so we make sure to be as thorough as possible with you in advance! Spot calligraphy, monograms, event venue sketches, custom watercolors, and all other a la carte items add to your timeline.
25% Due at Start of This Phase
Once every proof has been finalized and approved, production can begin. Your print process selection will dictate the timeline for production. It takes an average of 2-4 weeks for your suite production and any a la carte items.
Phase 3 / Assembly & Delivery
Your order will by default be shipped to you without assembly (with the exception of envelope liners which we believe should ALWAYS be left to the experts). Most clients choose to have us assemble everything for them to remove that burden from their planning process. Envelope options include digitally printed guest addressing or hand calligraphy guest addressing (our most popular option).
We will ship your completed order to you via UPS. A tracking number will be provided as soon as the shipping invoice has been paid to release the completed project to you. For full service clients, we do provide stamping and mailing services. This leaves the stress of weighing envelopes to consider postage fees as well as the hassle of bringing them to the post office to us.
a la carte OPTIONS
Choose from single, double, triple, or even quadruple monograms. Reproduced from classic Victorian designs by hand and digitized to maintain the highest quality when printed or applied to any surface.
We can accommodate any amount of calligraphy for your invitation. Hand-lettered then digitized to retain the look and feel of calligraphy without compromising quality in reproduction.
Event venues, maps, beloved pets, and countless other meaningful visuals make for a wonderful story for you and your guests. These are a great way to truly make our semi-custom suites your very own!
Guest addressing options include digital address printing or hand calligraphy addressing (our most popular option).
Wax seals, ribbons, tassels, and more options that add an element of texture and personality.
Let your story shine from the very first glance at the envelope. Choose from custom printed stamps in your theme or vintage postage related to your paper and your event.
