Where are you located?
I am based between South Orange, New Jersey
and Chester Springs, Pennsylvania. I am available to work with clients nationwide; between all the phone calls and constant communication online
the experience is not much different than if you were local to me.
What the typical turnaround time?
If you are looking to begin your stationery with a save the date, we generally recommend we get in touch approximately 8-9 months prior to your wedding day. This gives us plenty of time to get to know each other, talk about the scope of your needs, and begin designing your save the dates well within the recommended 6-10 month mailing window. We will start your invitation design roughly 5-6 months out from your wedding, and you can expect to have your addressed, stuffed, and stamped suites in hand 8-10 weeks before the big day. We are happy to accommodate to earlier mail outs due to destination weddings and other needs.
What kind of stationery services do you have?
We can accommodate many different items that are not just paper. We can order custom cups, signage, and favors just to name a few. Check out our list of items we can design here:

What does custom stationery design entail?
We start with your save the date and weave the same feeling through to your day of stationery pieces like programs, signage, and place cards. Custom stationery design also means we handle all aspects of the design, and printing process’ to ensure premium results.
Can I make edits to semi custom items such as
holiday cards and invitations?
You are able to make up to 3 edits to the design. (color, etc.) Edits after that will deem the design custom which will entail a 250$ design fee.
I have a tight deadline, will I have a rush fee?
If your timeline is on the shorter side, don’t stress! Expedited timelines are totally doable depending on how full my current calendar is, so feel free to reach out and we can chat about your specific needs. Rush fees may apply during the design process and the printing process depending on how tight of deadline.
Do you offer assembly, stuff,
stamp and mailing services?
Contact us for a comprehensive estimate on servicing your invitation needs. It requires detailed information regarding your suite to develop your estimate. ( if you have wax seals, envelope liners, all the details) This is not included in any of our pricing for custom or semi-custom services but can be added.
When should I mail my invites?
8-10 weeks before your big day is ideal. If your planning a destination wedding especially overseas, 12-14 weeks or even earlier would be of courtesy to your guests and their travel planning.
Do you have minimums?
We do, to ensure the most attention delivered to our clients we cannot complete singular item requests or minimal print runs. Minimums vary depending on the item/service.
What kind of printing services do you offer?
I specialize in fine printing techniques like letterpress, embossing, foil stamping, screen-printing, engraving and thermography. Digital printing is also available and is very common to achieve vibrant colors and is certainly cost effective, we offer this exclusively for our semi-custom suites. Each printing method has its own benefits and limitations, and we will work together to determine what makes the most sense for your style, needs, and budget. High quality printing also begins with high quality paper, and the majority of our projects are printed on luxe heavyweight cotton papers and fine card stocks. The possibilities are truly endless, and if you have an idea in mind we’re happy to chat with you to see if we can make it happen!
Do you offer a'la carte calligraphy services?
We are happy to accommodate your event even if you got your invitations elsewhere or are only needing calligraphy for your event. Day of details such as escort cards are available to all clients. We require a 100$ minimum.
