Ordering Custom Invitations
How long is the custom design process?
The design and production timeline for custom invitations is 10-12 weeks before your desired mailing date. This is 5 weeks longer than the timeline for ordering Prêt invitations. We like to finish 2 weeks in advance of your invitation mailing date to give you ample time to assemble, address (or commission a calligrapher to address) and mail. All our stationery is proudly printed and finished in the U.S.
what's my mailing date?
Your invitation mailing date is typically 4-6 weeks before your event date. If many of your guests are traveling for your event, we suggest sending your invitation 6-8 weeks in advance of your event date.
For Save-the-Dates, your mailing date is typically 6-9 months before your event date.
TIMING for custom invitations
Please contact us to begin the custom design process for your event 5-6 months before your event date if you have already sent out your Save the Dates. If you have not sent them out yet and plan to, please contact us shortly after you set your date. Shorter timelines can be accommodated on a case-by-case basis. Get in touch!
i love a design you've already done. will you recreate a past custom design for less?
We are so happy you love our work! Generally, we will not recreate past work because it takes a considerable amount of time to tailor an already-designed invitation to your unique celebration. We would rather use this time to help you come up with something original and completely perfect for you. If you would like to order a pre-designed invitation, please consider the offerings in our Prêt Collection.
Coordinating details such as ceremony programs, cocktail and reception menus, bar signage, event signage, favor packaging and cocktail napkins can be designed to fit your Custom or Prêt suite. We've done everything from custom welcome tote bags to custom lobster bibs and pint glasses! Let us know what you need!
If you've already sent your invitations out and need event details designed and produced, we would be delighted to help you establish a look that works with your wedding decor and maintain it throughout all items for your day.
Please be in touch with us a minimum of 8 weeks before your event date to receive pricing and a timeline for event items if you aren't already working with us for Custom or Prêt invitations. If you are already working with us, we will provide a schedule for you to follow to get back in touch for day-of items with your estimate.
A list of the items that are the most requested for the wedding day and related events that you may consider are below. Of course, anything is possible. Contact us today for an estimate.
