We offer both custom stationery as well as our studio’s Off the Shelf wedding collection: a series of stationery suites designed by award-winning designer Robin Wilms that are ready for you to put your finishing touches on. Whether you choose to tailor an existing design, or go fully custom with something brand new, we work with you to create a suite that you are proud to send out. We happily answer any questions you may have, and are able to assist with wording or etiquette inquiries.

about  C U S T O M

Invitations carry a big punch. They are the first touch point your guests will have with your wedding, and they work to not only set the tone for the day, but serve as a reflection of the two of you. If you choose to go custom, we look at every detail to create the perfect suite that is a true reflection of your vision and style. We take pride in getting to know our wedding couples, and relish in hearing how we can capture their vision and vibe on paper.

What you have envisioned for the day is incredibly important to us and we begin by chatting style; colours, florals, dress selection, flow of the day, and the vibe you wish to set. We take to heart the personalities of each couple: how you met, what you do for fun, and the styles you gravitate towards.

the  P R O C E S S

  1. We chat about your needs and determine the pieces that best fit for you (ie. do you require a save-the-date, details card, illustrated map, mail-back reply card, etc.) as well as the quantities needed based upon your guest list.
  2. We discuss paper stock options, printing methods, and other materials and/or finishing touches such as envelope addressing. We offer a wide range of printing techniques including digital, thermography, letterpress, and foil. We use a range of stocks and materials (depending on the design and printing method); including, cotton, linen, felt, double-thick, wood, and fabric (to name a few).
  3. We put together a quote (a la carte style) including the options and potential upgrades that we discuss.
  4. Following your quote approval, and prior to beginning design work, we send you an Inspiration Board to narrow in on a design vision. This is a compilation of sketches, lettering, colours, and found imagery to help illustrate what we have in mind.
  5. Once we are on the same page visually, we begin the design process. We typically send between 2-3 invitation options for you to choose between.
  6. Once you are in love with one option we revise and fine-tune the design and wording. Two rounds of edits and changes are included within our initial pricing.
  7. We carry your chosen design across to your enclosures, if applicable.
  8. Once you are fully in love with the design, we send you a PDF final proof. (Note: you will have touched and seen materials and printed samples of your chosen printing method in step 2 and 3.).
  9. We *print and address the envelopes, if applicable.
  10. We ship directly to you. We typically ship with Canada Post Expedited, yielding an average of two-business days for shipping, and includes a tracking number (and a signature request should you prefer).

about  O F F  T H E  S H E L F

Shop our Collection, find your top fav, and send us a note to get started. Once you have chosen the design you want to run with, you can either take the suite as-is (with your wording, of course), or customize certain design elements. Just as in the Custom process, our Off the Shelf stationery allows for you to select your preferred paper stocks, envelopes, and finishings. If you choose to alter more than the complimentary fonts and font colours, additional alterations are available for a revision fee (note: all of our work is hand-painted; therefore, if you choose to alter the colours of something illustrated, a re-illustration fee will apply starting at $45 + tax).

a note about  P R O O F S

*Our team is committed to providing stellar paper products on quality materials with impeccable results. We take the time to do a press proof for each piece to ensure colour and saturation is up to snuff on all of our pieces. Digital printing can vary from day to day depending on the humidity in the air, thus rendering slightly different results from one print run to the next. For this reason, we do not mail printed proofs of your piece. However, we do have sample sets of our previous work so you can assess the look and feel of our work and materials in the flesh.
