The Event Invitations Process
Depending on the occasion and depth of your event theme, the design process of your event invitations and stationery may take a few weeks to a few months. Please consult with Socially Designed for your unique timeline and art expectation.
We start with a complimentary in-person, phone or email consultation to discuss the customer’s vision and style. The customer would be asked to fill out our client information form with the details of their event, so that we may further discuss and understand your event invitations needs.
After the consultation, a 50% design deposit is required to start the custom event invitations design process. The deposit is non-refundable but is credited towards the customer’s order. After a contract is signed and deposit received within 10-14 business days, we create a custom digital mock-up. The digital mock-up is an electronic version of the final printed piece(s) that will give the customer an idea of what the actual piece(s) will look like. These digital mock-ups are emailed to the customer for review. After review of the digital event invitations, the customer has the opportunity to submit feedback on the designs, letting us know what they liked and/or what changes they would like made. We then send the customer a digital mock-up of the design with the changes made. We require a 3 day response time after any emails are sent to the customer. This ensures that the entire project stays on the timeline provided. If we do not get a response within the 3 day requirement period, any extra charges for rushing materials will be addressed and forwarded to the customer.
A physical mock-ups of our event invitations are available upon request but does incur an additional cost, depending on materials and turnaround period requested.
Once we receive final approval in writing, by phone or email, we ask that the customer make a balance payment of the estimated total. If an order is cancelled after production has begun, we will retain a 50% fee.
Once the order is complete, we can either hand deliver* the customer’s event invitations order to them, ship the pieces (shipping rate is billed to the customer) or for an additional fee, we can address, stuff any related event invitations and accompanying stationery to the customer’s guest list. These fees are due prior to “delivery” of the product.
*Hand delivery is limited to a 30 mile radius from the 08050 zip code for no additional charge. Special arrangements for delivery requests beyond the 30 mile radius will incur additional charges based on job size and mileage.
