PROCESS & FAQs

Your event is unique, why shouldn’t your invitations be? People always remember a great invitation and it helps set the tone for your special celebration!

I would love to work with you to develop the perfect invitation and other paper goods for your unique event! You can contact me to place an order or request a custom quote at { hello@chelseyemery.com }

Also, just because you don’t see what you are looking for doesn’t mean it can’t be done! Custom design requests are just a quick email away!


HOW TO ORDER

STEP ONE \\ Choose a wedding suite from our existing collection, or opt for a custom design created just for you. Keep in mind that font, pattern, and color adjustments are all included to acheive your individual suite.  

STEP TWO \\ Send an email to hello@chelseyemery.com letting me know you can’t wait to work together to create the perfect invitations for your wedding!  I will send you my order form, where you can select which items you are interested in, and let me know all the little details about your event.

STEP THREE \\ Once I receive your completed order form I will email you an estimate, a design agreement and an invoice for a deposit. Invoices can be paid with Paypal or any major credit card.

STEP FOUR \\ When your agreement has been signed, and deposit paid, we get to work!  Electronic proofs are typically turned around in 2-4 business days, and often sooner depending on the amount & extent of revisions required.  
I will wait for your feedback before working on revisions.

STEP FIVE \\ Once you are entirely happy with your suite, we get ready to print!  A final invoice will be sent for any remaining payment, and once paid, your files will be released for printing.  Flat printing generally takes 7-10 business days and specialty print methods can take 3-4 weeks. 

STEP SIX \\ Once your pieces are printed, I will double-check everything, safely package them up, and ship them out.  You will receive an email with a tracking number so you can monitor their progress, and it will be just 2-3 days before your beautiful invites are in your hands!

What is the typical design process like?

Once you have determined what wedding invitation pieces you are interested in, complete our wedding inquiry form below and email it to us at hello@chelseyemery.com.  If new clients are not being accepted immediately, I will inform you of available openings and you will be placed on the calendar to reserve an upcoming date.  Based on the information provided, an estimate, design contract and retainer invoice will be emailed to you to reserve my services.  Once your contract has been signed and the payment for your retainer has clearedI will start working on your first round of proofs.  A signed contract and paid retainer are required to secure future dates of service.

Rounds of proofs will be delivered via email in PDF format.  There are three (3) rounds of proofs included, additional proofs are $10 each.  With each round of proofs you can suggest changes to revise and refine the designs, which will be incorporated into the next round of proofs.


How long will my project take?

Each design is tailored to your specific project and unique tastes, therefore as the client, you must provide requested information and feedback in a timely manner.  Estimated dates of completion will vary based on the number of changes requested and your response time for critiques and approvals of the designs.  Designs will be delivered in rounds until final approval is given.  Typically proofs are turned around 3-4 days after receiving your feedback; please allow for additional time on completely custom designs.


What kind of information should I include on my invitations?

Generally, as a rule of etiquette, registry information is not included anywhere on the invitations.  One way to alert your guests to your registry information is to include an Information Card with a link to your wedding website (if you have one).  See more wording suggestions and etiquette advice by clicking the button below .


How are invitations typically assembled?

Typically the pieces are organized in order of size, the smallest being on top.  If all enclosure cards are the same size, the RSVP card should be at the front of the stack, tucked into the RSVP envelope directly behind.  The stack of pieces should be placed into the envelope with the left edge first.  If you are using an inner envelope, it should be placed inside the outer envelope so that the guest names are visible when the flap is lifted, the inner envelope should not be sealed.
