The design process begins with a conversation either via telephone, Skype, FaceTime or in person. This is the time for us to get to know you and for you to get to know us! We’ll want to hear all about your plans for your upcoming event and learn about your style and what makes you unique. We’ll also use this time to chat over some possibilities for your invitations and paper products. After our meeting we’ll provide you with detailed estimates based on what we have chatted about.
Once a pricing structure is agreed upon we’ll move forward with creating a detailed schedule for your entire process with due dates and when you will need to provide feedback during the process. This will be delivered along with your service contract. Once the signed contract is returned with the $500 initial deposit we move onto the design phase.
The fun begins! At this time we’ll start to develop the concepts for your invitations. We’ll also start getting together a sample package of materials to send your way, which you’ll be able to view with your initial digital designs once they’re delivered. You will be provided with several different designs, and from there, it’s a collaborative creative process fine tuning and revising your designs until we achieve the optimum look for you. Our studio allows unlimited revisions as long as time permits.
Once the designs are delivered and we’ve revised and combined design elements to create your perfect suite the proofing process starts. We’ll begin with a digital proof, which will need to be approved with the material choices before we move onto a hard copy proof which will need to be signed off before printing and production begin. The remaining balance of your invoice will also be due at this time.
Each invitation is meticulously made by hand in house, allowing us to oversee production and ultimately provide you with a perfectly crafted work of art. Depending on the complexity of your design and the processes involved, the production process can take anywhere from 4 – 8 weeks to complete.
Once your invitations are completed, they will be shipped off to you, or by your request, mailed to each guest. Stuff, stamp and mailing services are included in our $2000 minimum.
During the Zenadia Design couture invitation experience, we work closely with you to make sure you are getting an invitation you love.
