the process

Useful things like the Studio shipping and delivery, T&C's and privacy policy can all be found by clicking on the links at the bottom of each page on the website.

01

GET IN TOUCH

You've found a design within the Studio Collection which is just right for your big day OR you want to go for the bespoke option.

02

ORDER

I'll direct you to a form to complete to let me know of any specific requirements and details for your items.

Price of a sample pack is £5.00 (plus postage) 

03

WORDING

All your wording for your items must be sent as a Word document. If you've ordered place cards or a table plan, an Excel spreadsheet of names is really helpful!

04

DEPOSIT

Once I have your completed order form and wording, I will then send you an invoice for the total cost of your items. A 50% non-refundable design fee must be paid before work can begin.

05

DESIGN

The design and personalisation begins! I will provide you with digital proofs via email which you'll need to check and approve.

06

FINAL PROOF

Proofs are intended to be a final check to make sure you’re completely happy prior to your items going to print.

07

FINAL BALANCE

Once your proofs have been approved, I will send you your final invoice detailing the balance remaining. This needs to be paid in full prior to your items going to print.

08

DELIVERY

I LOVE to hear about your wedding/event and how everything went! I also really appreciate any feedback, or comments on anything from service to design.

WHEN TO ORDER

 Not sure when you need to get in touch to order your save the date cards, invitations or on-the-day stationery? Below is a really, helpful table that shows you the latest you need to get in touch based on your wedding or event month and approximately when your stationery should be dispatched.

I recommend that you send out invitations 3-4 months ahead of your big day to allow time for chasing RSVPs and so that you have enough time to get final numbers to other suppliers that you're working with.

View the save the date cardsinvitation suites and the on-the-day stationery; check out the table below and then hit the button below to get the ball rolling.

TIME GUIDELINES

 From design fee payment received to delivery, general time guidelines are as follows
 

4-6 weeks for semi-custom Save the date cards
8 weeks for semi-custom invitations*
6-8 weeks for on-the-day wedding/event stationery*

4-6 weeks for thank you cards

*Bespoke design service has a longer time usually 12-16 weeks depending on the complexity

These timings are in place to maintain high standards and allow adequate time for you to review and approve digital proofs. In order to operate the Studio in an eco-friendly manner I have designated print slots where several sets of stationery are printed at the same time.
