how the process works

Thank you for considering me for your stationery needs for this very special event. I’m already looking forward to working with you! Please feel free to submit the form at the bottom of this page, to send an inquiry to me.

  • After hearing from you, I’ll reply back with a bridal questionnaire filled with questions specifically tailored to see your perfect invitations come to life.
  • Once I get the questionnaire back, we can finalize all the details and I will send you a proposal. After you approve and sign the proposal, I will send you an invoice and contract.
  • After all that, I’ll begin on the rough sketch of the design of your suite. This is the area of the process most open to changes, and I will work with you and make as many changes as needed to get it perfect. With the rough sketch, we’ll begin to really see it come together.
  • Once the sketch is approved, I’ll paint the artwork and do up the calligraphy. I’ll put it all together in full color and send you a digital proof of your suite. Only once this proof is approved will I begin the printing process.
  • I will then order the paper and envelopes, along with anything else needed for your suite. (ribbon, sealing wax, etc.)
  • After I’ve received everything to put your suite together, I’ll print a single copy of your suite and assemble it, then I will send it to you for the final approval. The envelope will be stuffed and addressed to you, in the same way it will be addressed to your guests. This way you’ll get to see exactly what your guests will be receiving in the mail. By this stage we’ve gone through so many approvals that everything should be perfect. (This step can be skipped if time needs to be saved.)
  • With a final approval from you, I will finish printing the rest of the suite and address the envelopes. From here, you’ve got two options. I can stuff the envelopes and assemble everything for you, or I can ship you the finished suite for you to assemble yourself. If I am to assemble it, postage for the envelopes will be invoiced. (or you can purchase it yourself and send it to me) I will also send you any extras from your suite. (sealing wax, envelopes, custom stamp, etc.)
  • This process usually takes about eight weeks.
  • Any day-of details will be done closer to the wedding, about four weeks out, since you’ll need the guest list to be finalized. These details include: place cards, menus, programs, signage, etc. These will also be invoiced closer to the day of.

what's in the budget?

Now the question that everyone wonders about. What is this going to cost? Please keep in mind that fully custom invitations suites like these for an average guest list of 100 start around $1000 and can go as high as $5000 for the all inclusive. They usually average around $2000 though. Please note that the minimum order for an invitation run with FaithIntoArt is $500. 

  • In your bridal questionnaire you’ll be asked to provide your ideal budget. Most of the time what you’re wanting doesn’t match up with your budget. That’s okay. I’ll work with it. I want this process to be as easy as possible for you. After all, you’ve got enough on your plate!
  • So if your initial quote is outside your budget, that’s okay. We’ll talk about what the most important elements are for you, and what you’re willing to go without or splurge on. If you keep an open mind about your budget, we’ll make it work.

from start to finish

All of the invitations and pieces are printed in house here at FaithIntoArt. This means that I fully control the quality of your suite, from the concept sketch to the final print, so that it comes out perfect.

  • I use a flat printing process for everything. It’s exactly what it sounds like. Your classic case of ink and paper with a smooth surface.
  • All of the pieces of your suite will be duplexed. This means that you’ll be getting a gorgeous piece that has both a front and back design. Duplexing is automatically included in all pricing.
  • The paper mostly used is an 80lb stock, doubled. With the duplexing that means you get very nice and thick 160lb pieces. The paper is a high quality cardstock. It’s super white, and super smooth. Other papers can be requested. Just mention it in your bridal questionnaire.
