FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
You will probably only do this once - no one expects you to be the expert! Here are some frequently asked questions.
IS NOTEABLE INVITATIONS ONLY FOR WEDDINGS?
Nope! I am happy to customize any design with any text you choose - or to design something special for your event!
I WANT TO WORK WITH NOTEABLE INVITATIONS! HOW DO I GET STARTED?
I would LOVE to work with you too! Just fill out the BOOK ME form and I will be in touch within 24 hours to confirm your appointment (either in the studio, phone or via Skype).
IS THERE AN ORDER MINIMUM?
I have a $400 starting price for the Collection (Semi-Custom) and a $1,000 starting price for Custom work.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
You can find the process for The Collection and Custom work here.
WHEN SHOULD WE GET STARTED?
Save the Dates - Once you have your wedding date and venue secured, we can get started right away! The ideal time to meet with me to discuss your Save the Dates is 7-13 months before your wedding, so they can be mailed out 6-12 months in advance.
Wedding Invitations - I recommend starting the process for wedding invitations 4-8 months before your wedding. This allows time for design, printing, envelope addressing, assembling and mailing, so they can be mailed 10-12 weeks out from your wedding day.
Day of Stationery - The process for day of stationery (such as Menus, Ceremony Programs, or Seating Cards) should begin about 2 months before the wedding.
HOW MANY DO WE NEED?
Invitations – It’s always better to have too many than too few. Also it is always nice to keep a couple for your photographer and keepsakes. Remember most of your guests will be couples, so as a general rule divide the total number of the guest list by 2, and then add on an additional 10-15% for spares and last minute changes to the guest list.
Wedding Programs – Although it is nice to have a program for each individual, your guests will be happy to share. Plan at least the same number of invitations as programs.
WHAT ARE THE DELIVERY COSTS?
All orders are individual so the delivery costs will vary, however the delivery cost will be included in your final payment. If you are a local bride, I am happy to set an appointment for you to pick up at my studio.
Delivery (US only)
US Orders – As soon as I am certain your stationery meets my high standards, I will package it up and mail it out to you.
I always use USPS Priority Mail Express (overnight) or USPS Priority Mail (1-3 business days). I will confirm your mailing address before I mail them out and then provide the tracking information.
CAN YOU HELP WITH WORDING AND INVITATION ETIQUETTE?
I am happy to help! Feel free to ask me questions, and to check your wording.
I'M IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, CAN I SWING BY TO LOOK AT YOUR WORK IN PERSON?
In order to ensure you receive the attention you deserve, I am by appointment only. I reserve 1 hour for your initial appointment to review your design, paper options, print methods, and wording for your invitations. To book an appointment, click here.
DO YOU OFFER ENVELOPE ADDRESSING?
Yes! I offer both digital addressing (printed with a font) and hand written.
CAN YOU DESIGN AN INVITATION LIKE ONE I FOUND ON ETSY/PINTEREST?
I welcome inspiration photos or items that give me a sense of your style but I can not replicate another artist's work. Thank you for understanding.
