Your Love Story, Beautifully Printed

Welcome! I’m Ashley, and I’d love to be the artist and designer of your wedding stationery. Let’s create something customized specifically for YOU! This is my favorite part of being a designer—creating one-of-a-kind print pieces that are personal, meaningful, and visually capture a specific moment in time that can then be cherished forever as a tangible keepsake. Let’s tell your love story creatively through custom invitations that illustrate who you are as a couple, set the tone for your wedding, and get everyone excited for your big day!

While many aspects of your wedding will live on through memories and photos (you can’t save the food, and the flowers won’t be the same), your printed stationery will be a truly personal keepsake of your engagement and wedding. It can be stored easily or even framed in your home. Having a custom work of art that symbolizes this time in your life and relationship will be a one-of-a-kind memento that your loved ones will want to keep as well, and even the experience of the creative process will bring the two of you together to reflect on your love story in surprising new ways!

When you work with me, I keep the process very personalized to ensure your invitations are everything the two of you envisioned. I thrive on the conceptual phase, creating a unique design solution that achieves your dreamiest #invitationgoals. I’ll work with you to suggest the best way forward in terms of artwork, design, printing method(s), and budget. You can expect polished, professional designs, high-quality prints, and excellent service throughout the entire process.

So what do you think, are you ready to invest in a custom work of art that will symbolize your love story and wedding day? Reach out today and let’s be friends!

Investment

Looking for wedding newspapers? See my Wedding Day Post collection for pricing!

Pricing for custom-designed wedding invitations starts at $1500 for the design and digital printing of 100 basic suites (A7 invitation, RSVP card, and blank envelopes). However, typically my clients are interested in more inventive and unique invitations, including many specialty details, luxury materials and complex printing/production methods, where pricing averages in the $3000–$5000+ range.

Each quote I send is highly personalized and specific to each couple, depending on your overall vision and budget. Pricing will vary based on the scope of artwork involved, custom elements (sizing, folds, shapes, paper types), assembly time, number of additional pieces, or other add-ons such as envelope liners, wax seals, addressing, vintage stamps, and more.

I’m currently booking couples through 2023, and generally recommend inquiring at least 7 months before your wedding date. (But depending on my schedule, rush projects are also possible, so feel free to inquire if your timing is sooner!) I only take on a limited number of custom invitation clients per year to ensure I can devote time exclusively to your project—so if you’ve set your wedding date, it’s never too soon to inquire! Click the link below to begin the process. Once I get all the information and details from your questionnaire, I can provide a detailed quote tailored to your specific needs and budget!

The Process: What to Expect

PHASE 1: QUOTE & CONSULTATION

After you fill out my initial questionnaire, I’ll present you with a custom quote tailored to your needs, vision, and budget. Once we work out all those details and agree to move forward, I’ll ask for a 50% retainer of the estimated cost to complete your booking. That’s when the process really begins! I’ll send over another questionnaire to help me learn more about your love story and you as a couple, which will inspire the design of your wedding stationery and ensure it’s customized especially for you. I’ll also send over a link to your exclusive client portal, which will help keep all the details of your order organized and on track.

PHASE 2: LOOKBOOK & SKETCH

Now that I know more about the two of you, I’ll create a custom lookbook of your stationery suite — including a sketched mockup of all pieces and artwork, color palette, design aesthetic, and inspiration imagery. We’ll go over all these details and confirm that we’re on the same track! Once you’re happy with everything I will proceed in creating the artwork and design of your stationery.

PHASE 3: DESIGN PROOFS

Yay, your sketch and lookbook are approved! I will create your custom design and artwork, and send over digital proofs for your review and approval. At this time you can review final wording and make tweaks until everything is perfect. Two rounds of revisions are included in the pricing of your order. (Additional revision rounds are also available as needed, billed at the flat rate stated in your proposal and contract.)

PHASE 4: PRINTING & PRODUCTION

I’ll send the approved artwork to the printer and ensure the production process goes smoothly. If you’ve requested any assembly as part of your order, I can take care of those wrapping, tying, addressing, gluing, and stamping details as well! Final stationery items can either be carefully boxed and shipped directly to you, or I also offer mailing services and can mail out your final invitations on your behalf.

Many finishing details are decided during the initial quoting stage, but can also be added on at any time during the process!
