The big question has been asked, you said "YES!" and the date has been set!
At Shanti Studios, we understand that wedding and event planning may seem very overwhelming, however, when it comes to designing your invitation suite and day-of goods we are here to help. We offer one-on-one design consultations to walk you through the full process.
We promise to make this experience as personal, fun, and stress-free as possible! Ready to get started?
The first step is reaching out to us! Please fill out our Wedding Invitation Suite Form.
You will answer questions that will help us get to know you and your design vision.
It's important your budget and quantity is answered realistically. When we chat further, I will only be showing you options within your budget.
The form will allow you to insert your Pinterest Board link and upload inspiration photos to showcase the style you are trying to convey!
After we have reviewed your form and determined we are a good fit, we will email you to schedule an in person consultation!
At your consultation we will review ALL the details -
color story, paper options, printing techniques, envelope colors/finishes and general wording etiquette.
Consultations are scheduled for 60 minutes.
*Please be sure to let us know if anyone else will be joining so additional seating can be arranged.
Based on our discussion at your consultation, you will receive a custom estimate via email 1-2 days following.
Pricing is valid for 30 days and subject to change.
Upon approving all quote details and pricing, you will be emailed an electronic invoice for your 50% non-refundable deposit and an electronic contract.
Once the deposit and signed contract are received, we will send you a list of deadline dates that align properly with your timeline!
We've received everything needed to get started and will use all details discussed to design your initial digital design proof!
Your order includes up to five (5) rounds of revisions. Additional revisions require additional payment.
Once you have given us the final approval on your design suite, your order will go into production. At this time, you will not be able to make any changes. Your final balance is due upon the final approval of your suite. Once payment is submitted, your order will be sent to production.
Once production has completed, we will carefully review, and prep your order for pick-up or shipping.
At pick-up we will discuss how you will direct USPS to properly process your invitations (also noted below).
If you're unable to pick-up your order, we will ship it! We will ask you to confirm a day someone will be present a that location. A signature will be required.
IMPORTANT MAILING INSTRUCTIONS
In order to account for the proper amount of postage, your invitation suite will need to be weighed.
Bring one complete invitation to the post office in order to avoid inadequate postage resulting in returned mail.
Be sure to include all inserts within the main envelope including the RSVP card and corresponding response envelope inside the main envelope.
The response envelope MUST be stamped prior to final assembly and mail out!
You will receive your invitations in perfect condition, so it's important they arrive to your guests just as perfect!
Machine cancelling can create damage to delicate invitations. Ask for your envelopes to be “hand cancelled” - instead of being run through a machine, they will be stamped by hand. Hand cancelling takes time, so ensure you go to the post office during a quieter time of the day.
