No. 1 - Your Wedding Style Your own personal stationer can help you put together the wedding invitation you've been dreaming of down to the smallest details. Whether you're having a destination wedding, a wedding weekend, different cultures, languages, ceremonies? A very distinct theme? A spectacular location? A designer can keep your wedding stationery unique, uber personal and tasteful.
No. 2 - Service The level of attention and service you'll receive is something that those big invitation manufacturing companies cannot offer. Your personal designer is there to get to know you and care about what matters. An expert will help guide you in the right direction as well as help relieve stress.
No. 3 - Expertise They will help take the stress out of the process, educating you on what works and what doesn't when it comes to design as well as guiding you through printing processes. This includes the right tips on wedding stationery etiquette, mailing times, who to send what, where, when, how and why.
No. 4 - Details, details! Since this is a major life event much thought should go into your wedding invitations and day of stationery. Your wedding stationer can recreate a family crest or something inspired by your grandmother's wedding invites. Colours can be matched exactly to your desired colour palette. From a personal monogram, custom graphics or pattern - the sky's the limit!
No. 5 - Keep it Local Hiring a local designer gives you the benefit of being involved in the process from A-Z. For starters you will meet with the designer for a no cost consultation where you can ask any questions you may have. You will also be able to view paper, printed proofs and even attend the final press approval if you'd like. That way you will not have to worry about what the end product will be, as you will view everything before all gets printed.
