Let's talk about about how Cut Above Stationery's invitation process works. First, if you have decided to get a bespoke invitation from Cut Above Stationery, book a spot in the calendar! The calendar has been booking up quickly and these invitations can take time. In fact, 2-3 months is a typical time frame for design and production of an invitation. Putting a deposit down will hold a spot in the calendar.
To begin enter a few questions in our Let's Chat page. This will then begin a consultation for your invitation. Kristen will get a feel for the type of invitation you would like based on the questions you answered and put together a proposal for you. Once a proposal has been accepted and a deposit is paid. We will begin the design process.
You would put together all content (wording and guest lists) and send it over to Cut Above Stationery. Based on our previous conversations Kristen will put together pencil sketches of three different designs for you to choose from. After a sketch is chosen Kristen will then create the calligraphy and illustrations for your stationery; a digital proof of all pieces will be designed and sent to you to approve. If you need any changes made, they will be made, and a new proof will be sent to you.
After the final proof has been approved by you, the remaining balance can be paid, and production of your invitation will begin!
