PHASE 1: CONSULTATION
For those who would like a custom order, we will schedule a personal consultation either in person or by telephone. During your consultation the design
direction, color palette and materials will be chosen. You will then receive a Price Estimate detailing items and options. Budget information is always welcome,
as we can suggest alternatives to your choices if needed.
PHASE 2: ORDER
Studio Collection orders can be placed by contacting us via email or telephone. Once you are ready to proceed, you will receive a contract with deposit amount.
To place your order, simply return your signed contract and the 50% deposit required. The balance will be billed at the time of project completion, and the final invoice will reflect all changes to the order (and 8.75% sales tax for IL residents) and shipping/delivery. We accept all payments in the form of check or credit card via PayPal.
PHASE 3: DESIGN
Once we receive your signed contract and deposit, the design process will begin. Custom orders include 3 invitation card designs to choose from based on the consultation. 3 additional design options can be provided for a $50 fee. Once your invitation has been chosen, all other pieces will be designed to coordinate
and will be shown in the 1st PDF proof.
PHASE 4: PROOFING
Your order includes up to 3 rounds of PDF proofs at no additional charge, or 2 PDF proofs and 1 hard-copy proof by mail for proofing color. Please be aware
that colors on screen may not appear accurate and that digital proofs cannot exactly replicate the color from a printing press. Pantone ink chips are provided
for the closest color proofing available. If further edits are requested, a $15.00 fee will be applied for each additional proofing round.
PHASE 5: PRINTING AND PRODUCTION
Printing takes between 2-3 weeks. After your order has been printed, the finishing touches and assembly will begin. Depending on the level of hand assembly
required, production will take from 1 day – 3 weeks.
PHASE 6: COMPLETION
Your final payment is due upon project completion. Clients within the Chicago-area may opt for personal delivery for $30. All other items will be shipped
via UPS and may require a signature upon delivery (UPS shipping typically costs between $10-$20 based on box size). Please provide an appropriate address
for UPS delivery.
