The design process begins with a phone call, meeting, or email conversation. If you are in the metro Detroit area, call 734-417-4477 or email me to set an appointment to come by my studio.
2 ~ QUESTIONNAIRES
Let's kick this off with two short questionnaires - the first one is all about how you want the invitation to LOOK. It's the fun stuff! Do you want a custom duogram with your initials over a sketch of the coffee shop where you met? The second questionnaire is the down-and-dirty details. How many do you need? The wording. Etc.
3 ~ SIGN
Once I have your questionnaires I will send a proposal for you to review. After your approval, we nail it all down with a contract and collect a 50% non-refundable retainer to begin designing.
4 ~ DESIGN
Within three weeks of receiving your signed contract and payment, I will send a PDF including 2-3 initial design directions created just for you. (At this stage, only the invitation and response cards are included. Once you decide on your final preferences, then the chosen design will be incorporated into any remaining stationery pieces.)
5 ~ REVIEW
After receiving your feedback I will finalize your design and send you PDF proofs. There are 3 rounds of revisions included. Additional revisions can be completed at a $100 per revision/PDF proof fee.
6 ~ APPROVE
Sign off on your final proof. At the time of your design approval, your balance is due.
7 ~ PRINT
After everything is approved it is time to get the printing started! Generally, printing takes three weeks.
