Autumn Studio’s invitations are custom designed and handmade for each client. We also proudly sells the following: Monique Lhullier, Paper Duvet, Silver Beginnings and Milestones Stationery (click here for more details on these "Other Products").
We pride ourselves in utilizing cardstocks and papers that are FSC and SFI certified, minimum of 30% post consumer fiber and carbon neutral. Many the papers we purchase come from a company that utilizes 100% wind power for electricity. We feel good about providing our clients beautiful invitations while being mindful of protecting our environment.
As all of the invitations are custom, I strongly recommend that the process begins 4 –6 months prior to your event. This will allow for design, approval and production. Keep in mind that your invitations should be sent out 6 to 8 weeks prior to your event. Production can vary due to number of orders on my calendar prior to your booking date as well as the complexity of your design. It is truly never too early to begin the design process.
The first step is a complimentary consultation. This can be done either in person (depending on location), phone or e-mail. Prior to your consultation begin to think about what you want your invitation to look like. Every detail is important and no detail is too small! Think about your theme, colors, flowers, venue, dress, etc. Use the portfolio section of this website to help. Pictures, swatches and inspiration boards are very helpful as well.Fill
out the Autumn Studio Design Elements Worksheet and e-mail it back to me.. This worksheet covers all the details of your wedding and also helps me get to know you and understand your vision. Don’t’ have a vision…no worries…I would love to help you come up with one!!
After the consultation, I will have a starting point as to what you are looking for and I will create a sample, which I will send you as digital photos. This sample will be available for you to purchase. You will receive your sample exactly as your guests will receive their invitations. I truly believe that holding the sample, seeing and feeling the papers is the best way to fully appreciate the quality and beauty of all the products used in the creation. The purchase price of the sample will be deducted from the balance of your stationery order.
Once you have approved the sample, I will begin production. You just sit back and relax!! I will be in contact with you throughout the entire process. I welcome contact from you at any time as well. I will let you know just prior to the completion of your invitations so you will know when to expect them to arrive.
Not only do I want you to love your invitations, I want you to enjoy the process of creating your perfect vision. I will work closely with you throughout the whole process and together we can create the invitation of your dreams. My wish is that you enjoy the invitation design process as much as I do!
