Process: How it Works

1. Get Inspired: Begin by browsing through the design galleries for inspiration. Think about what kind of style you want, colors and the pieces you will need to order. You can customize a design from the gallery, or we can create something completely new for you. Remember that the amount of invitations you will need to order is not the same amount as how many guests you are inviting - one invitation will go to each couple or household. (18 or over? Send them their own.)

2. Consultation: Call or email to schedule your consultation. At your personal consultation we will discuss your event, your style and what you envision for that special occasion. You will be able to browse through all the colors of stocks available, the entire line of shapes and sizes from Envelopments®, and a wide range of finished samples. The details that are most important to you will be turned into a design that reflects your personality, and sets the tone for your special event. A custom quote and a mockup of your suite will be emailed to you after our meeting.

3. Begin the Order: When you are ready to place your order a simple online contract will be created for you. A signed contract will be needed along with a 50% deposit to begin your order. We will then begin your custom design.

4. Check it Out: When your design is complete, digital proofs will be emailed to you in PDF format and will include every piece in your set. Five rounds of changes are included at no cost to make it perfect.

5. Creation: Once you have approved your proofs, the balance of your order will be due. Your stationery set will then go into production to be printed and hand-assembled for you.When your order is ready to go, we will discuss pick-up, drop-off or shipment directly to you.

6. Out for Delivery: Your invites should be mailed 6-8 weeks before your wedding. Prepare for tons of compliments and replies checked yes!


Timeline Guide: When to do what...

Wedding Invitation Suites: Send at least 2 months in advance
Order 4-6 months before your wedding. You should plan on mailing your invitations 6-8 weeks in advance, earlier if you have not sent Save the Dates, are having a destination wedding, or if your wedding is during a busy season. Request a reply date 4 weeks prior to your wedding to allow additional time to create escort cards and other wedding day paper.

Save the Dates:
Send 6-8 months in advance
Order 4-6 weeks before you want to mail. For destination weddings or weddings during a busy season they should be sent 8-10 months in advance. This allows your guests to make their travel arrangements.

Wedding Day Paper: Programs, Menus, Escort Cards, Table Numbers, Favor Tags, and More...
Order these items about 6 weeks before your wedding, or as soon as possible once you have all your information finalized. Some pieces may take longer than others depending on amounts of information, quantities and customization.

*Etiquette Tip: Thank you cards should be sent within 6 weeks following your wedding day. You may want to order these along with your wedding day paper so you have them when you need them.

The timelines listed above are approximations only. Orders can take more or less time depending on the season. Please call or email if you need a rush order.


Sales Tax

When pick-up or delivery is not an option, you can have your order shipped via FedEx or USPS. Insuring your shipment for its full value is highly recommended.


Payment Schedule

Once you place your order, a deposit of 50% is due. After reviewing and approving your proofs, the balance of your order will be invoiced so work can begin. You may pay by check, or if you would like to pay with a credit or debit card, you will be emailed an invoice with a link to PayPal where you can securely make your payment. Shipping charges must be paid in full before your order can be sent. Due to timing, most Wedding Day Paper orders require payment in full.


Proofreading: Once is never enough!

Remember to proofread every detail of your order. Print out your proofs and have several pairs of eyes look over them paying attention to wording, spelling, names, dates, etc. Admire Design is not responsible for these types of errors. Your text is printed exactly as shown on your proof. Unfortunately, if you do find an error in your printed order, Admire Design cannot offer a refund and will have to charge the full price for reprinting. When you approve your proof, you are approving it exactly as shown - keeping in mind color varies from screen to print.
