We schedule your complimentary consultation. This session will allow us to learn about you, your taste, your budget, and any inspiration that you have. You will be able to see, feel and touch samples of papers, printing methods, finishing treatments, etc. This will give us the information that we need to create your custom quote. We will discuss ballpark pricing before you leave, so that you have an idea of what to expect.
We provide you with a quote for the items that we discussed in your consultation. All proposals are line-itemed so that you know what items represent what portion of the cost. This quote can be revised as needed until it is perfect for you.
You approve the proposal by signing and returning the paperwork with a 50% deposit.
We will provide you with forms to complete with your custom content for your invitation suite. Our experienced consultants will provide you with guidelines and assist you with wording or any unique situations.
Once we receive your completed content, we will generate custom digital proofs for your review. You will note any needed changes and return via scan or fax, and we will then make the revisions and send new proofs. We will repeat this process until all proofs are approved, signed, and returned. At this point your final balance is due and your order will move to production. You will be given an estimated completion date once your approved proofs are returned.
Your order is produced and then quality checked before we notify you that they are ready to be handed off. Orders can be picked up in person at our Design District Studio Monday- Friday from 9:00am to 4:00pm. We also offer an option to have your items couriered to your door, and your project manager will be happy to give you an estimate for this service.
