Bespoke Wedding Stationery Design Schedule

Nicola and Mark

One of the most common questions I receive is how long you should allow for a bespoke wedding stationery design.

Below is the structure I use to schedule your design work. I ordinarily provide a week for each feedback opportunity for my clients, to allow some thinking time, but also to allow time for work, other wedding planing, and even other life activities! If necessary, and you are able to provide this feedback promptly, we can speed up the process. Additionally, if you’re going to pop off on holiday for a few weeks (well, we can dream can’t we?!), then that will slow the process down.

However, this is the structure I start with, so it gives a good idea of what to expect. If you do have any questions about it, do please contact me – I do love a nice email amid all the Pinterest notifications.

 

 Start Date

The date you can expect your first design (normally a Wednesday). Once I receive your payment, I will email you and set this date, and complete this form with your dates. You will be provided with the initial design and a feedback form. This initial design may be incomplete. For example, if you have ordered RSVP cards, Save the Date Cards or On the Day stationery, they may not be included at this stage. Generally I wait to see if you like the concept and the colours of your invitation design before continuing with the rest of the stationery.

Final Design Sign Off

 

Based on your third and final feedback form, I will complete your design. If you are choosing to organise printing yourselves, you will sign off the designs and receive your final JPEG. If I am organising the printing, I will format the image for print, and you can check your design for all the practical details, colours and design, and sign it off for print.

I endeavour to use your three feedback opportunities to get your design exactly right, and this has not yet been a problem. However, if you would like further design changes or you would like to add information you previously haven’t mentioned, then I will charge £25 per hour for the extra design time. I will always keep in constant contact so you are aware of the time included and the costs incurred as I am working.
