What is the design process like? What is the first step?
Our design experience is highly personal. We love finding inspiration in the smallest details – from engagement stories to a slip of fabric that holds personal meaning. In order for us to create custom designs that fit our clients and their events, we take the time to get to know you, so the first step would be to contact us and set up a consultation. We do consultations in-person, via web chat, email, or by phone. After the initial meeting, The Pink Orange brainstorms design concepts and presents ideas to clients in person or via email. Once a concept has been chosen, and pricing has been agreed upon, the design fun begins! Fully designed stationery is presented, with feedback and refinement occurring before going to print. The final result is personalized stationery that perfectly captures your style. For more information, please contact us.
How much does custom stationery cost?
The Pink Orange strives to provide competitive pricing for our customers, but on average, expect to pay a minimum of $45 per suite for custom wedding stationery. Depending on need and event, this price can vary greatly - we strongly recommend contacting us for a design consultation to fully scope out your ideas and get a more accurate assessment on pricing.
What is the timeframe for custom stationery?
The design process for custom wedding stationery, invites, and announcements can take anywhere from six weeks to two months, plus production time. Printing and delivery can take up to two months, including calligraphy and assembly. Keep in mind that save-the-dates should be sent to guests six to nine months prior to your wedding or event, and invites should be sent six to eight weeks prior to the RSVP date. Consider these elements when exploring options for stationery.
When should I get my custom invitation order started?
The sooner you get started, the better! We recommend contacting us at least 6-8 months before your wedding date. If you find yourself strapped for time, don’t panic! Reach out ASAP, we’re happy to come up with a plan for you.
