Custom Invitations


My goal is to provide you with something beautiful that has been designed for you, and embellished to suit your taste and budget.  Below is an overview of the process involved in getting your event stationery from a simple idea, to a creation that fits the vision of your special day.

Initial Consultation

The first step of the custom process is the initial consultation.  Since my invitations are custom designed to fit your vision, it is a vital first step to meet and discuss your ideas, wishes and look at any samples, papers, ribbons or accessories that may interest you.  Feel free to bring along anything that inspires you.  My mission is to design something unique that will set the tone for your special day and will delight your guest from the moment they open their mailbox!   This is an obligation-free consultation, in the comfort of your own home or wherever is most convenient.  If we are unable to meet in person, we can work via phone, email and post.


Design Process

A sample invitation is then created, and if necessary becomes further refined until you are happy with the overall look and feel.  A full set of stationery will then be created to match, depending on your needs, and sent to you for approval.  You will need to check these samples thoroughly – read,re-read, pass them onto other family members to proof-read too.  Make sure dates, times and overall spelling is correct.  Once your samples are approved (dated & signed), a 50% deposit is required so production can begin immediately, and you can receive your order in a timely and efficient manner.  There are no minimum order quantities – but the more invitations you order, the lower the “per-unit” cost will be.  You will also be supplied with a guest list template to assist with compiling your list more effectively.


Finished Stationery

Depending on the items you require, you may receive your stationery in two parts.  Invitations, reply cards and other related stationery will be ready first.  They are neatly boxed up and hand-delivered, or you have the option of picking them up.  Much closer to the event, your remaining stationery, like placecards, bonbonniere tags and order of service booklets will be ready.  The reason for this allows you to only purchase necessary stationery for guests that are actually attending.  The balance of payment is made once the entire job is completed.

Additional stationery – there is the flexibility to have extra items printed should you forget to invite someone, or need to invite someone at the last minute.
