When it comes to wedding stationery, it is best to contact me about two months prior to when you want to send out your invitations. I charge R250 for a face-to-face meeting in the Cape Town area, or you can opt to meet me on Skype, free of charge. After our initial consultation, you can expect a quote from me within 3 working days, depending on the complexity of our project.
After I sent you your first quote, you can change and add to that quote until you are completely happy with it. Once the quote is approved, I will make up an invoice for the deposit, which is always the full design fee. I then kindly ask you to complete the deposit payment to hold your spot in my queue. You can sign and send the invoice and T&Cs back to me, and keep a copy for yourself.
Once the deposit payment has been paid and the terms signed, I will send over a detailed schedule for our project together. It will include the entire process from start to finish and when you can expect your designs, mock-ups, final files, etc. In this schedule I will also give you specific times for your ‘due homework’ (questionnaires, pin boards and required content information). Creating a detailed schedule will allow us both to stay focused and make sure that everything is ready on time.
Before we can start, I will give you some homework to prepare. I will send you the necessary questionnaire for you to answer to ensure we are on the same page before I start the design process. The questionnaire will provide valuable information for me as I start the design process. I also ask you to create a detailed secret Pinterest board, full of inspiration from colours, patterns, outfits, decor etc.
This is where the party starts! Once I study your questionnaire and Pinterest board I will put together the first presentation for you. This presentation will include a style board, colour palettes and inspiration for type, layout and design. This will be your opportunity to make sure that you agree with where I want to take the design.
Once the first presentation is approved and within a maximum of 10 business days you will receive your first of three drafts to review and give feedback. A maximum of three drafts are included with the initial price. If any additional drafts are required, a R350 per hour charge will be added to your next invoice. Please note that this is rarely necessary and I will guide and help you along the way to make sure we get exactly what you are looking for.
Once the final draft of the design is approved, I will continue to make up pre-print approval files for you. I need you to read through everything carefully one last time to make sure that there are no mistakes.
When you approve the pre-print files, I will send it on to my printers and send you an invoice for the production part of things. I need two full weeks for production to take place.
Once I’ve received your printed goodies, I will wrap them up nicely and send them to you via a reliable overnight courier service.
