Bespoke Invitation Design Process

Follow the steps below to create your perfect invitation!

Step #1: Get Started
Step 1: Get Started

Bespoke invitation design starts here. You will see the term Get Started throughout this website, and the easiest way to do so is to fill out our new client questionnaire. We ask a bunch of questions and you should provide as much information as possible. But don't worry if you don't have all the answers just yet. Once you fill out this form, you will be contacted to set up a consultation with Matthew, our Lead Designer.

At your consultation, we will discuss the specifics of your project, but for now just say hello!

Step #2: Education

Now you've set yourself up as a new potential client! Since you filled out our questionnaire, it's time for you to become more informed about what we offer and about the possibilities of bespoke invitation design. Ideally, review these resources before your Consultation in order to develop a better idea of what you like.

The primary resources you should check out are our Gallery, Our Capabilities, the the About Us section, and The Bespoke Blog.

Step #3: Consultation
Step 3: Consultation

In this step of the bespoke invitation design process, you and Matthew will discuss your design goals and needs. Secondly, we will discuss your budget and style. We will walk you through the process, provide useful information and helpful tips, and generally get to know you. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you have, and present any ideas you have in mind.

We will brainstorm together until we have a concrete idea of the direction we are going to take with your project. An estimate will be prepared for you, and you will choose your final bespoke invitation design direction.

Step #4: Design
Step #4: Design

Our Design Team composes the first proof of your design for you to review. Since the majority of your design is planned out already, there may be little or nothing to change from this first proof. However, there may be some changes you want to make at this point and that is part of the process!

We will work with you to refine your project until you are ecstatic about the final design! Your design and quotation will be adjusted as needed until you are completely satisfied with both the design and the price.

Step #5: Production
Step #5: Production

Now you wait for our team of artisans to do their magic. Production time, provided to you with your estimate, varies depending on the project. Rest assured knowing that we handle every aspect of production and quality control in-house. Your dedicated project manager keeps a watchful eye over every step, making sure the final product is perfect.

Bespoke invitation design and production take time, but since we handle everything in-house, our production time is fast.

Step #6: Delivery
Step #6: Delivery

Once your bespoke invitation design project is completed, it can be shipped to you directly or, if it is a piece that needs to be mailed, we can handle the packaging and bring the finished pieces directly to the post office for you to ensure that your invitations travel safely through the postal system. You have the option to mail the invitations yourself, and we also offer a mailing service, which may be useful for more complicated projects. If we handle the mailing, you will receive a package with finished sample invitations to serve as keepsakes in memory of your event.
