Where do you get your inspiration from? I get my inspiration from everything and anything around me. Whether it be a rusty door, my cats, a song, a flower and most importantly my brides and grooms.
Do you have a favorite style of invitation (formal, whimsy, contemporary, etc)? My favourite style of invite is our new collection called Love Stories. We have designed invitations for every style of bride and we designed our invitations to tell a story. So we have designed an invite for the food lover bride and groom, the summer couple, the fall couple, the rustic couple, the urban couple etc.
Do you specialize in a type of stationary (letterpress, print, engraved, etc)? We specialize in letterpress, engraving foil stamping
Average cost of your invitations: If you were to choose a design from an existing collection, the price starts at $1200 for 100. For a completely custom design the cost starts at $2600. And what is great about our designs is that even if you choose a design from an existing collection, you can still customize it in the paper, envelope, ink colors, type, wording and we even change the hair and facial features of the characters to look like that specific bride and groom!
Tip or advice to brides/grooms designing custom invitations or stationary suite: Remember that your invites represent your personalities and your wedding. Tell your guests your story, show them your quirks and don’t be afraid to be different and step out of the typical traditional invitation suite. Your invitations give your guests a glimpse of your wedding day, you want them to feel exited! Your invites are something you will cherish for years to come, so we have the mission of making each and every invitation a piece of artwork that all your guests will keep and cherish forever.
