If the words ‘custom stationery’ bring to mind $$$ (and lots of them) you’re not alone! It’s a common misconception that the moment you see ‘custom’ describing any product or service you can automatically plan on spending double what you would at a big box retailer. We’re finally hitting ‘publish’ on this blog post today to help show you how attainable personalized and one-of-a-kind stationery can be!
Let’s take a moment to recognize that high end stationery maybe isn’t at the top of your priority list and that’s ok! We will be the first to admit that our services are an investment, but one that will reap stunning rewards for both you and most importantly your guests.
If you place importance on telling your love story through thoughtful design details and see the beauty in a cohesive set of a stationery, you should explore the investment into custom paper goods!
The couples we have the joy of working with also understand that there is so much more to our design process than simply coming up with something ‘pretty’ to look at. One of the most important parts in our process is our Creative Consultation. This is where we meet and talk about #allthethings. You bring any images that inspire you and we fully understand the look and feel you want to achieve.
Guess what? You’re not an expert at getting married (nor should you be) and that’s why we’re here to help you through this process.
We organize your entire timeline so you know when you need to have wording and guest lists back to us by. We offer help with wording (because you shouldn’t have to know how to properly word an invite!) And most importantly, we keep in mind the look and feel you want to achieve throughout every single piece we create for you. Your wedding guests should look at every single piece of stationery at your wedding and exclaim ‘that’s SO THEM!’
So how do you think our pricing stacks up to a big online retailer? Ready to find out? We’ve done all the work for you and went ahead and created some beautiful invitations on Minted as detailed below. A standard three piece suite which consists of a main invitation, an accommodations card and an rsvp card. We also included an addressed envelope and gold foil liner (because we all need a little gold in our lives!) then compared that cost to our cost. How much more expensive do you think our pricing was? Double? Triple?
Keep scrolling to see how our stationery prices compare to Minted, you might be surprised!
We’ll spare you the time of pulling up your calculator on your phone to tell you that the difference in pricing is less than $350!
What do you think? Are you surprised? If you were expecting our pricing to be double or even more than Minted don’t worry, you’re not alone! We’ve heard this sentiment from brides time and again and we simply want to make sure you understand the truth behind wedding invitation pricing before making your decision.
Have you thought about if your invitation suite will have enough postage on it (or how to even find out how much you need)? Have you wondered how you actually put together a suite? Remember these things as you compare pricing! What is your peace of mind worth?
In the end, our goal with every single bride we have the joy of working with is getting to know them on a personal level and designing wedding invitations and stationery that tell their unique love story.
What will your love story look like on paper? Contact us here and find out today!
