Be sure to check out The Paper Vault’s Wedding Checklist to help keep everything organized throughout the wedding planning process.
Step 1: Consultation
The process begins with a meeting, at which time we will discuss all of the details for your big day including your colors, flowers, venue, and overall vision. Feel free to bring any ideas or inspiration to the table and we’ll show you different fonts, colors, papers, and invitation styles. Please be prepared to discuss the quantity of stationery pieces needed.
Step 2: Quote
After you have chosen your invitation concept or design, we will provide a detailed quote within 2 – 3 business days of our initial meeting.
Step 3: Deposit
Once the quote is approved and we have received a signed purchase agreement and $100 deposit, we will begin designing/personalizing your invitation package. Payment may be in the form of check or credit card.
Step 4: Design
Approximately 1 – 2 weeks after the deposit is received, we will send the first round of designs for your review.
Step 5: Revisions
We’ll exchange emails and/or phone calls discussing edits and we’ll get to work refining the designs until everything is perfect.
Step 6: Final Proof and Partial Payment
You will receive a final proof to review and approve. At this time, we will collect 50% of the invoice and begin production. Your $100 deposit is credited to your order at this time.
Step 7: Production
Depending on the quantity and complexity of your design, invitations can generally take between 4 – 6 weeks to be completed.
Step 8: Final Payment
Your order is ready! The remaining 50% of the payment is due at this time.
