process

SAY HI | You said yes – congrats!  Head over to the contact page and reach out to see if your date is available.

LET'S CHAT | If your wedding date is available, we’ll schedule in person consultation if you’re in the KC area or a phone/skype chat if not. This is a great time to learn more about the special details of your day, design aesthetic and what it is you’re looking for in your wedding stationery.  Consultations are typically scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  Saturday appointments can be requested for those traveling in.

PROPOSAL + CONTRACT | After your consultation you’ll receive a proposal based on the stationery pieces and suite type(s) we talked about.  Included in this document is the contract for review as well as an estimated proofing and billing schedule. Each phase of the wedding stationery process is billed separately.

BOOK IT | The proposal is approved and you’re ready to move forward. You’ll receive a questionnaire that will house all necessary details for your wedding stationery.  Please submit this and your initial deposit and I'll get to work on your proofs.  These are typically sent within 5 business days of receipt.

PROOFING | This is when it gets real! That first time you see you and your fiance’s name in the proof designs is so exciting.  We’ll go through a design proofing process for each piece of your phase of your stationery. More details on this process and timeline are provided at booking.

FINAL APPROVAL | Done, final, perfect – send them off to print!  Once your pieces are complete you’ll receive a final approval document to review, initial and sign. An estimated completion date is provided once your pieces are in the production queue.

SPECIAL DELIVERY | Your stationery is complete and it’s time to mail them out to your guests.  Orders are shipped via USPS priority.  Local pick up can also be arranged for clients in Kansas City.
