Designing the right custom wedding invitation, program, save-the-date or even thank you card can be a hard task! Of course, each client is different and desires their personal touch. So how do you know what is best or where to start when it comes to designing the best wedding package for you? There are so many things that come to play when trying to decide from the size, paper, color, style, cost, quantity and so on. It can be overwhelming to some. The wedding planning itself can be stressful and adding the wedding stationery can make it worst, right? Well, I’m here to make the process go smoothly by designing the best customize stationery that fits your ideal wedding. Jpellin Video + Design is more than a videography company I am a Graphic Designer as well who love to design for the perfect client, you!
So here are some tips to take in consideration when making designing the perfect wedding stationery.
Tip #1: Start Early
Starting early is key! Before designing any card I love to find out about my client first and her ideas for her special day. Getting to know you helps me better understand your vision. From there the planning can start. So, if you choose to send out a save-the-date card, just know the cards should go out 8 to 10 months before the wedding date. You have to give your guest time to plan and make the proper arrangements for your special day. Another thing to consider is the print and designing timeframe.
Tip #2: Define Style
Defining the style! There are many styles to select from classic, elegant, casual or modern. Once the style is selected choosing the page size and the color theme will be a breeze. Now it’s time to start the design process. The process will take about 2 to 5 days of turn around time for the first proof. After the proof is ready I will email to you the proof for edits. Once I have the proof back I will make the edits, and email back and move forward to print once I have approval. Printing will take about 2-5 business days to print and ship or longer depending on how fancy you go.
Tip #3: Consider Costs
The price per invite can vary widely anywhere from $1 to more than $100. It all depends on the design, printing process, paper and quantity. Top of the line papers, color ink, formal printing techniques (like letterpress and engraving) and custom design will add to your costs, as will decorative extras like envelope liners and multiple enclosures.
Tip #4: Order More Than You Need
There is always a chance that some will be damaged or lost in the mail, so you want to have enough to cover those. Also, you will want to keep a few as keepsakes. Often, the couple will keep at least one or two, and the parents of the bride and groom may also appreciate an additional copy.
