Process and pricing
First up let’s talk about the elephant in the room:
How much does it cost?
As my service is totally tailored to you, your ideas and your requirements, I don’t have a set price list. If I did, it would be taking away from the truly bespoke nature of what I can design for you. This really puts you in control as every single piece of stationery is created to your exact specifications from numbers to paper choice, EVERYTHING is unique to you, including the cost.
That said, I know how important it is to factor cost into your wedding planning, and I want to give you as much information as I can, as early as I can. Therefore, I complete a detailed quotation at the start of your stationery journey so you can factor that into your budget and make final choices with that in mind.
When you choose TLW for your wedding stationery you are investing in my expertise and are putting your faith in me to advise and create a totally unique, quality product to perfectly suit the style of your day.
I will take you through a tried and tested process to make sure you know what is happening and when. From step one you will have guided input into your design, and I will keep you informed throughout until your invitations arrive beautifully packaged and ready to send to your guests.
Ok, let’s look at how your gorgeous wedding stationery comes to life, shall we?
You’ve made your mind up and you’re ready to get started! Depending on your preference there are a couple of options for arranging a consultation:
You can book your consultation here, to talk through your plans in a little more detail via telephone or zoom. Perfect if you are busy or too far away to travel for a face-to-face consultation but you still like to chat!
If telephone isn’t your thing then you can request a consultation in person or via email using our online booking form.
ready to book!
After our initial consultation you will receive a guideline quotation for all of your stationery needs.
Once you have accepted your quote I will forward your invoice and payment details for your deposit.
Now we get onto the best bit, designing your amazing wedding stationery.
You will receive a link to your personal ,online design board where we will gather together everything we need to complete your stationery order.
This is a great tool to help keep track of the design, information and progress throughout the process. (no more getting lost between emails and social media messaging) EVERYTHING you need will be right there on your board.
All design proofs will be uploaded to your board via PDF where you can view and request changes* to the design to make sure the finished product is just right.
*3 free refinements to the design are allowed and after that may incur additional fees
approval and printing
Once you have signed off on your design you will receive an invoice for the remaining balance of your stationery. Once this is received your order will go to print… EXCITIING!
When the printers have finished doing their thing then I can work my magic. I will start assembling your invitations with all the special little touches, making each one picture perfect ready to send to your guests.
At this stage we will agree a specific date for collection or delivery, whichever suits best. Please note that delivery will incur an additional fee.
Time to sit back and have a little cheers to celebrate this stage of your wedding planning! This is the first big thing you will do and the first glimpse into your big day for your guests, so it is definitely worth a little celebration!
*bubbles optional, a warm cuppa and chocolate is also acceptable.
The timeline for completion will be different for everyone, depending on how far in advance you are booking your stationery. So, when you book we will discuss key dates for completion and posting. As a general guide I will start the design of your stationery 6 weeks prior to when you want to post your items. This is typically 12months for Save the Dates and 12 weeks for invitations unless otherwise requested.
