At Twin Sisters Designs, the design process is uncomplicated, fun, and personal. Bespoke invitations and announcements are tailored to coordinate with your specific vision, making the experience completely custom from start to finish. Here’s what to expect along the way:
Initial Contact: Introduce yourself; tell me about your special occasion! If a wedding is in your future, I look forward to hearing about your engagement and getting to know you and your fiancé as a couple. Perhaps you’re celebrating an upcoming arrival of a new baby or preparing a 50th wedding anniversary for your parents; congratulations! Send me an e-mail or pick up the phone to call; I’d love to hear from you!
Consultation: Let’s discuss your stationery needs and detailed vision. Pinterest boards or photos of inspiration are welcome and pair nicely with my simple client questionnaire, which is available to assist you in putting your details, thoughts, and vision into written form for submission. Tell me all about your personal style and what type of design elements you’d like to incorporate in your custom design. Having an understanding of your style and paperie needs will allow me to begin the design process and provide you with pricing, paper options, and of course, a fabulous bespoke invitation design!
Design Process: A decision to work with me requires a non-refundable deposit and is used to initiate the actual design process for your custom paperie. Open discussion, feedback, and digital proofs are used to ensure that your vision is coming to life. Digital proofs are sent to you electronically and physical samples can be sent via US Mail upon request. Because I begin every custom design from scratch, turn-around times vary but run an average of 2-3 weeks.
Proposal: Because special occasions and styles are unique to each client, so are individual prices for custom designs. Invitations for Social occasions begin at $1.50 each with add-ons priced individually. Wedding invitation suites have a broader range but are most commonly $3.00-$5.00+ per suite.
Virtual Handshake: Once you have had a chance to review your tailored proposal, say “I Do!” to your custom design with a 50% deposit and a signed contract. You will have an opportunity to make final edits and revisions as necessary, even change quantities if needed. Once all final edits and revisions have been made, the remaining balance due is required in full to initiate the production of your order.
Production: Production times vary based on the complexity of your order and seasonality. I will confirm production dates with you once final proofs have been approved.
Delivery: Once production is complete, your order will be carefully packaged and mailed to you via USPS Priority Mail. Upon receipt, toss some confetti in the air and get excited because you’re ready to send out some style for your special occasion!
That’s Not All: Twin Sisters Designs is here to help with your Day-of Event needs as well! Ask about coordinating paperie and supplies that will ensure your personal style is visible throughout all details of your special occasion.
