The custom process
Get to know each other
After you have completed the application form, I will contact you by telephone to discuss the application. I would love to hear what your ideas and wishes are and tell you more about the customization process. Please note I accept a limited number of custom clients per uear, and most custom clients have a budget between €1750 and €3000. If custom is not right for you, I do offer om Semi-Custom Collection as option.
Important note: An application for wedding invitations must be made at least 2 months before sending & delivering.
After I have a clear picture of what you are looking for, I will make a custom design and I can give a rough estimate of the costs. I will make a schedule for the delivery of wording and other design-specific material.
Digital design proof
You will receive a digital design proof and contains realistic representation of the wedding invitation with any extras such as wedding logos and location drawings.
Letterpress printing is a centuries-old artisan printing method that requires precision and dedication. Traditionally, letterpress was limited to wooden or metal type, but modern letterpress has evolved to allow the use of polymer plates allowing greater freedom in letterpress capabilities.
Printing wedding invitations takes an average of 3-4 weeks. All cards are hand printed on a vintage letterpress. For this technique special metal printing plates are made and ink will be mixed by hand.
Due to the traditional printing process, it is not possible to receive a physical proof of your design in advance, but I can send you samples so that you get a good idea of the printing techniques and possibilities.
Luxury printing techniques
The paper I use most for my designs is a thick soft cotton paper.
This paper gives a nice impression and feels soft, the structure of the paper is also visible, which gives the cards an authentic character.
