Custom Design Stationery Orders

Below are the steps to begin the custom process with us.

Step 1: Let’s Talk!
The first step in our invitation journey is to set up a time to chat or meet in person. We will talk about what you are looking for in a suite, colors you plan to use, styles you love and what the overall look is that you want for your Big Day.

Step 2: Estimate
Once we have an idea of what you are looking for, we will create an estimate for you to review. We require a 50% deposit to begin the design process (we have to pay for a lot of the services and products for your suite up front). Once we have a deposit and signed contract, we will mail you a copy for your records and also send you a timeline to review. The timeline will keep us on track throughout the process. I will also send you some sample documents to help with your choice of wording for your pieces.

Step 3: What We Need
We will ask you to send us all your wording for your invitation and other pieces so we can get started on your designs.

Step 4: The Design
Once we have all the information from you we will design your invitation. Papertree will send you a PDF proof of 2-3 design options to review. If you don’t love anything, please let us know. We will be happy to send some more options...we want our couples to fall in love with their invitation suite and will not settle for less. Once the invitation is designed we will design the accompanying pieces for you to review.

Step 5: Final Approval
Once you are madly in love with your invitation suite we are ready for printing! We will ask you to approve your proof by signing it and returning it to us (you can take a photo and email it, works for us!). It is VERY IMPORTANT to proofread all the pieces in your suite. We are not responsible for any errors after the suite is approved and in production. We will also send you a final invoice at this time. Once we are all set we will ask for the remaining balance that is due and send your invitation off for final printing. Standard flat printing takes 2 weeks plus an additional 2 weeks for assembly. Specialty printing takes 4 weeks plus an additional 2 weeks for assembly. All packages are shipped via FedEx and you will receive a tracking number. Please refer to your timeline provided to know when to expect your finished invitation suite. *Rush orders are available, contact us for pricing.
