Everything you need to know about my wedding stationery design services! I've compiled all the details for you here in one place. If you still have questions after reading this, just email me at alisa@alisabobzien.com and I'm happy to help you out.



ONLINE COLLECTION

This refers to the nine different pre-designed suites that are listed under the Wedding Collection heading above. If you're looking for one of my designs that you saw online or in a magazine, this is most likely where you will find it! Each piece can be customized to your specific wedding vision and you can order samples and place your full order directly through this site. Turnaround time is about a month from start to finish.

CUSTOM DESIGN

Custom design means I create something entirely new from scratch just for you. If you don't see any designs in the online collection that fit your style, or have more complex stationery needs this may be a good option. The custom design process requires more time and involvement (for both the client and myself) and thus has a longer turnaround time. Because of the amount of time custom projects require, I only take on a limited number per year. If you are interested in placing a custom design order, please fill out this inquiry form and I will get back to you with details and availability within 3 business days.

|| Pricing
For custom design, just add the following amounts to the prices listed on the price sheet for the online collection, which accounts for the extra design time required.:
Invitations - $550 design fee
RSVP - $350 design fee
Info card - $350 design fee
Thank you card - $150 design fee
Stamp(s) = +$30 design fee

|| Turnaround time
I will need at least 6 weeks from the start of the project to the estimated ship date, that will give us enough time for design, revisions, proofing, and production. 

|| Payment schedule
50% deposit required to being project, remaining balance due upon approval of final pdf proofs

||  Info I will need from client (when you are ready to get started, just fill out this form):
• Types of pieces needed and quantity of each (invitation, rsvp card, details enclosure w/ map, envelopes, stamp, etc. - you can use the online collection suites as references for what is available)
• Wording for all pieces
• contact info for billing, email address, and shipping address for where order should be sent
• Ideal deadline you would like to have your order in-hands (don't forget to give yourself enough time for assembly and addressing :)
• Link to a pinterest board or examples of the style you are envisioning
• Any other special requests or notes

|| Process
I work directly with either the event designer or the client via email.
Two rounds of revisions are included in the prices. Additional rounds of revisions are billed hourly at $75/hour.


DAY-OF PRINT MATERIAL

This term refers to the paper items you will need on your wedding day - programs, signage, menus, etc. I do not have the pieces added to my website yet (future goal!) but coordinating day-of designs are available for all of the suites in the online collection and also custom design projects. At this time, custom design for day-of print material is only available for clients who have ordered custom invitation suites from me and pricing is available upon request.

Invitation suites and day-of material are usually entered as two separate orders since they have different due dates. To submit an order, you can just email me and I will create and invoice. For pricing, please see the following price sheets:

ENVELOPE PRINTING

Envelope printing, address labels, and calligraphy are questions that come up with pretty much every wedding order. My general approach to wedding stationery is 'anything goes', except when it comes to envelope addressing. Even though it is one of those older, traditional stationery rules, I really do agree that invitation envelopes should be addressed by hand. I could write a whole post on this alone (maybe I will!) but in short, the invitation envelope is the first thing your guests will see when their invitation arrives;  you want it to feel special and personal. Plus, pretty hand-addressed mail is such a rare treat these days. 

There are a few options for hand-addressed envelopes, you can hire a calligrapher, do it yourself or request some help from friends and family with nice handwriting. You don't have to have perfect handwriting, that is part of the charm (check out the links below for some DIY tips!) To help prettify your envelopes, I created a 'Deliver' stamp to coordinate with each suite, which is the perfect way to dress up your hand-lettering  and make it all feel official. The stamps fit all three envelope sizes, so you can use it for everything from your save the dates and invitations all the way through to your thank you notes. There is also a coordinating return address stamp for each suite. Like the deliver stamps, it serves multiple purposes - it is strategically sized to fit on the back flaps of your save the dates, invitations, and thank you notes, and it also the front of your rsvp envelopes!
