What’s in a wedding suite?

All the things! Whatever your heart desires. That’s the beauty of custom invitations, designed by an artisan, just for you. 

But, we have to start somewhere! Below are exemplary design packages of core items to include in mailed items, as well as expanded offerings for mailing or day of. How we bring your vision to life with digitized illustration, painting, calligraphy, typography, and graphic art design elements are up to us. During the project I’ll confirm best fit printing and production materials. How does this work?

First, we will select some core motifs to riff off of, and align on the tactical elements for your design. We may include a classic or loose modern take on a heraldic crest. Often our work together influences the feel of and aligns with event design, from the venue to botanicals. We’ll land on digital mockups ready for printing. 

Then, we decide how much we want to play with printing and production. You may want to take your designs to your own printer or use paperless post to send them digitally. Most couples want to enlist my support in print management. We can also play with add-ons like wax, vellum, ribbon and more. I also support couture embellishments, as well as individually painting invitations. We might include explore adding in hand lettering and calligraphy addressing for the invitation suite, or expand into bespoke day of goods.
