Payment for your wedding invitations happens in 3 phases.
Phase 1 - Proofing Deposit
Your first step is a $100 proofing deposit. This payment is due before we begin working on proofs that are customized with your names and wedding specifics. Deposits are non-refundable once design begins.
This is the bulk of the design phase. All rounds of edits are complimentary to all of my clients. During this time you'll see digital proofs of your design as we edit not only the text, but the paper colors and details as welll.
Phase 2 - Paper Deposit
Your next payment is 50% of your order and this is due before I order paper. I typically like to take care of this about a week after we start working on proofs. That gives us time to tweak the colors and play around with them a bit in the context of your actual wording.
That also gives you time to finalize that guest list and get an accurate household count. Once your paper is ordered, additional fees will apply if you need to change either colors or quantity. Paper takes about 2 weeks to arrive, so we’ll keep working on design details while that ships.
If there is time I do like to mail out a printed proof for you to review before we go to print. This is a complimentary service I offer to all of my clients.
Phase 3 - Printing and ship out
Your final payment is the remaining balance of your order and is due before your invitations ship out to you. Most packages ship priority mail and do include insurance just in case there are any accidents during shipment.
