01. Complimentary Initial Consultation
We offer a complimentary, one-on-one initial consultation to discuss your style and vision. As is our trademark, Paperwhites offers careful and constant guidance throughout the process of selecting and creating your invitation. Our goal is to ensure that your style and budget are reflected in the invitation and stationery you’ve chosen.
02. Cost Estimate & Deposit
Within two business days or more, depending upon the complexity of your project, you will receive a quote based on the specifics discussed at your consultation. A 50% non-refundable project deposit starts the design process and will be applied to your final invoice.
03. Wording & Design
Once we receive your content in a Word document, the design process begins. You will work directly with one of our experienced designers. They will assist in the preparation of your wording and help with any etiquette questions. You will be asked to review the content and the layout carefully, looking at each and every detail for accuracy! You will have the opportunity to make two rounds of revisions to correctly capture the vision for your invitation. Additional changes, should they be necessary, will be at a cost of $35.00 per revision. Changes must be communicated via email to your designer.
04. Final Approval & Printing
Once we receive your e-mail approval of your design and confirmation of the quantity needed, we will schedule printing, order paper and embellishments (as needed). Printing time ranges from 2-4 weeks, depending on the method of printing you’ve selected, as well as the availability of the papers you’ve chosen. Paperwhites offers rush printing for an additional fee.
05. Assembly & Delivery
We are happy to assemble and mail out your invitations, or you may pick them up from us and DIY. We will discuss options at your consultation and in your quote. Our assembly schedules range from 1-2 weeks, depending on final quantity and complexity of any handwork you have chosen. If you are assembling your invitations, Paperwhites will provide complete DIY instruction. The final balance of your invitation or stationery is due at delivery.
