Bespoke invitations & stationery design.
Custom Crafted is about much more than just your invitation, it’s about crafting cohesive and inspired stationery to encompass your personal style and vision. Be it a single announcement or a full event suite through to your day-of detailing, I’m excited and honoured to work with you on such a hugely memorable event.
THE CUSTOM CRAFTED EXPERIENCE
Custom design begins with your mood-boards and inspiration, the thoughts and ideas that you hope to bring to life for your event. I’ll ask you to be thorough, make a night of it, and share as much detail as you wish about your story, your loves, and your inspirations. This is an opportunity for you to start the process running - tell me about your values, your personalities, and your event details, and we’ll gather those ideas together into a holistic, tailored, event package. Following this initial brainstorming session I will provide you with an initial estimate outlining your suite (or chosen items) and a timeline outlining key points in the process and when you should expect to see your stationery take shape. At this point you'll be invoiced for your initial deposit to book your place on the production calendar.
Utilising my background in design and typography is a major part of the creative process, defining and recommending layout and type choices, colour combinations, and finishing touches to coordinate with your overall wedding plan. Can't visualise what your pieces might look like together? Visual proofs and comprehensive suite layouts are supplied throughout the design and revisions process, and each iteration of your design will be showcased to you clearly outlining your choices and options.
Additionally - and perhaps most importantly - you will have access to me as your stationer for as long as your design and production is underway. As a one-woman show I take on a limited number of custom stationery clients per year in order to allow as much time and attention as needed on each project, and I will personally respond to your inquiries and questions along the way.
Timing & process
Custom Suites and stationery design typically spans 2-6 months depending on the scope of your project, design needs, and of course the current production schedule. You will be provided with an estimated timeline with your initial inquiry, and a detailed production calendar once a proposal has been accepted.
The timing and delivery of your design will be unique to your individual project timeline as custom design is an involved process often with a longer turnaround time than the Collection suites. You’ll receive regular updates throughout on the progress of your pieces as they come together, with up to three rounds of revisions to your design included prior to final approval and production. Finally, your stationery will be assembled and packaged with absolute attention to detail and handled with care, ready for you to share (and celebrate!) with family and friends.
