DO I HAVE TO LIVE IN NEW JERSEY IN ORDER TO WORK WITH YOU?
Absolutely not! I love working with couples and clients in New Jersey, New York, and beyond.
WHAT IS THE PRICE RANGE FOR CUSTOM WEDDING INVITATIONS?
Pricing varies from client to client, however custom wedding invitation suites designed by Lace and Belle start at a price point of $12 / invite. Printing style, quantity, the number of enclosure cards and pieces, and embellishments (ribbon, wax seals, and envelope liners) are just a few of the variables that will adjust the price. Lace and Belle couples invest an average of $2,000 for a set of 100 invitations.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN A CUSTOM WEDDING PACKAGE?
Three (3) custom design concepts are included in your package, as well as ten (10) proofing revisions, etiquette guidance, and any necessary invitation assembly. The number of pieces included in the suite is dependent on how many insert cards you want/need, and any additional add-on's you choose from the a la carte menu.
HOW DOES THE CUSTOM INVITATION DESIGN PROCESS WORK?
Following an initial consult (whether through email, phone call, video chat, or in-person), I'll send over a formal proposal. If the proposal is a good fit for your budget, a 50% retainer deposit is due and I'll create three (3) custom design mockups. You'll tell me what you love, don't love and we'll continue to build your invitation suite from the ground up, proofing, and making revisions until they are print ready. Once you sign off giving your final approval(s), files are submitted to print. Yay!
HOW LONG DOES THE CUSTOM DESIGN AND PRINTING PROCESS TAKE?
Lace and Belle clients can expect the design process to take approximately three weeks or more, depending on how many revisions are needed. I highly recommend booking with Lace and Belle at least six months or more prior to your wedding for custom designed wedding suites, so you don't feel rushed at any time during the design and proofing process. Print production takes approximately 10-14 business days for digital flat printing, 14-20 business days for speciality printing (letterpress and foil stamping), and 20-30 business days for invitations that have letterpress and foil stamping combination. Lace and Belle does assemble your invitation suite in-house, which can take 1-2 weeks depending on the intricacy of your suite, as well as the quantity.
DO YOU LIMIT THE NUMBER OF CLIENTS YOU WORK WITH?
Yes, but only for custom invitation suite clients. I only take on a limited number of clients for custom design work in a calendar year. This will guarantee you get the very best wedding experience with Lace and Belle during your wedding design process with me.
CUSTOM WEDDING INVITATIONS AREN'T IN MY BUDGET. DO YOU OFFER A SEMI-CUSTOM COLLECTION AT A LOWER PRICE POINT?
Yes! Lace and Belle has a semi-custom collection for the timeless couple who needs budget-friendly invitations. Digitally printed invitation suites start at a price point of $10/invite for a set of 100 and includes your invitation, RSVP card, details card, mailing envelopes, and RSVP envelopes with digital/flat printing. Wax seals, digital guest addressing, belly bands, and envelope liners, are just a few options available on an a la carte basis.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN SEMI-CUSTOM WEDDING INVITATION PACKAGES?
Wedding collection invitation packages include your chosen suite from the collection that best fits your wedding aesthetic, as well as three (3) proofing revisions, etiquette guidance, and assembly. Specialty printing and embellishments from the a la carte menu can be added on for an up-charge.
