I am typically contacted via phone or email from new clients. We set up a date and time to get together and discuss the event and your vision. Here we decide on colors, the overall look (envelopes vs. boxed), the quantities you need and your deadlines. I will give you a stationery "shopping list" of essential items and other ideas that add a nice touch but aren't crucial.
When we nail down the colors and papers, I will go ahead and order the items. I collect 50% of the total at this time. While the paper is in route, I will work on the design. We will likely go back and forth refining the concept and design. Once I have completed the custom design work, I will put together a proof for you to sign off on. Once you have given your John Hancock, I will go ahead with printing and then assembly. Upon completion and delivery you will be charged the remaining 50%. I deliver a nice bottle of vino along with the invitations so you can have a glass of wine while enjoying your invitations.
