1. Initial Consultation

During our initial meeting we want to get to know you. This is where we brainstorm ideas to create your invitation.

We'll chat about colour palettes, themes, illustration, fonts, style etc. We have you flip through books to get a feel for what is out there and what you might be interested in. 

We LOVE Visuals! Always feel free to bring in magazine cutouts, ribbons, photos of your venue, stickers, paint swatches, anything that inspires you.


2. The Estimate

Once all the elements are in place we will send you a quote for your project depending on your quantity and design. Once you approve of the pricing proposal a 25% deposit is required. Once that’s out of the way that’s when the FUN begins.


3. Design Concepts

At our studio we will start designing your invitation based upon our meeting and discussions. These will be emailed to you in an electronic proof (PDF) format. From there we will wait for your feedback before working on revisions.

The more feedback, the BETTER!


4. Refinement

Once you have narrowed down your invitation style, we tighten up the loose ends. We make sure all wording, language, colour, font etc. is PERFECT.

We will have you sign off on all files before we go to print. Here you will get a very clear idea of how your invitation will look. You will see everything laid out exactly as it will go to print.


5. Printing

We work with the finest vendors in the stationery world to get your invitation just right. We at SMUDGE are overseeing your invitation come to life. Typically printing will take 3-6 weeks so please be patient during this process. 

We hand assemble all your custom layers, envelopes etc. and affix the finest finishing’s. 

Once your job is complete we will contact you for pick up or delivery.
