HOW IT WORKS
Ready to order? OK, here’s how it works:
Let us know about your wedding event via the contact form, so we can provide pricing for items of interest.
Here are some things we need to know:
- items of interest (i.e. save-the-dates, invites, programs and menus)
- approximate quantities of each item of interest (Don’t worry, there is an opportunity to revise quantities during the design process.)
- budget (Range or Maximum)
- event date (When are you tying the knot?)
- color palette (We love a good Pinterest board! Feel free to share yours with us.)
- print method (Digital, Thermography, Foil-Stamping, Letterpress available on some items)
Based on the information provided above, we will put together a custom quote for you. At this time, we will let you know if there is anything we feel we cannot work into your budget or provide ideas on how to save to make it work.
We have broken down the nuts and bolts, now it's time to get started. Once our quote is approved, we require a non-refundable 50% deposit and a signed contract (we will provide upon inquiry) to get started.
Below, we have listed basic required timeframes for completion of Opus items:
- save-the-dates = 3-5 weeks
- invitations = 5-7 weeks
- day of stationery = 4-6 weeks
With this in mind, we will provide a specific timeline for your stationery order, so we can all stay on task. This schedule will have key dates for when you can expect proofs from us, as well as when your feedback must be submitted, our production schedule once designs are approved, and when you will receive your pretty package of Opus stationery!
Pricing includes up to 2 rounds of revisions beyond initial proofs of your stationery. Additional revisions or changes to your order will affect your final balance due, and we will make you aware of those costs at that time. Throughout the design process, you will receive digital proofs from us with instructions on how to give feedback and approve designs. All feedback must be submitted via email in writing. In some cases, physical proofs can be provided (inquire for pricing), but we do have sample kits available for purchase, so you have a clear understanding of the quality of work to expect with your Opus package.
Final payments are due once final design approval is received from the client to go to press. The design process is broken into three phases: save-the-dates, invitations and day of. The items you order from each phase will determine when final payments are received. For example, if you decide to purchase invitations and programs from us, your final payment for invites is due when we go to press for those, but the final payment for programs will not be due until we are approved to print for day of stationery. Why? Your needs change. You will not know how many programs you really need to have made until you receive back RSVPs, so this allows you to adjust your final quantities at that time.
Shipping costs are the responsibility of the client and are billed in your final invoice. The costs will vary depending on weight, size, shipping speed and requested carrier. Your shipping options will be provided to you once your order is approved to print, but most often packages will ship USPS Priority Mail Insured or UPS Ground.
