CONSULTATION: Once the contract is approved we’ll enter into a “getting to know you” phase in which we will learn more about your wedding details and the stationery pieces you would like. The more details you can provide us about yourselves and your event the better. We will also need some basic information to start with including:
A theme or color palette, if one exists, that you’ll be using for your event. Any ideas you have in mind for your custom Invitations including paper, ink colors, fonts and embellishments. Pinterest is a great starting point to share your vision.
Wording for each component of your invitations/announcements. (If you need help with this we are happy to do so.)
• Invitation text (wording, location, time, address).
• Reply text (wording, reply by date and the address the reply cards will be going to).
• Reception card text, if applicable (wording, time &amp; location).
• Return address for outer envelope.
• Any other wording you would like included for these or other components.
Checklist of components preferred and quantities for each.
ESTIMATE AND DEPOSIT: After our consultation, we’ll need one week to draw up the estimate based on your design, materials and what printing process we feel would best compliment your invitation style. Review the estimate carefully and let us know of any changes you would like to make. Before we start the design we’ll need your signed contract and a 50% deposit to begin designing options for your event.
DESIGN: Within three to five weeks, we’ll present you with design options. Here we’ll outline colors, materials and which printing process we suggest to best compliment your invitation suite. We’ll work closely with you and incorporate any changes you may have to ensure your invitations are perfect. Please be sure to gather all of your changes and ideas as completely as possible at each phase of the project. Two revisions are included in your order; additional revisions are $30/proof. We’ll notify you if any additional costs will be added before the work is done. You’ll be provided with a new estimate and asked to sign off on the estimate.
FINAL APPROVAL AND PROOFREADING: Before giving final approval, we want to make sure you are happy with your design proof, please be sure to proofread everything closely. Centennial Press + Design will not be held responsible for any errors in text, dates, spelling, etc. We’ll need your signature for approval on the final proof and your remaining balance paid in full … then we are onto the printing and production phase.
PRESS DATE AND SHIPPING: When we receive your final approval signature and the remaining balance paid in full, we’ll schedule your press date. Please allow three-four weeks for delivery from this date. Please let us know if you have a quick deadline or special needs. If you are unable to pick up your invitations shipping terms can be arranged. Shipping costs are not included in your estimate and will be invoiced to you.
