Heirloom stationery for couples who want to tell their story
and make their memories last a lifetime.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Your story deserves to be told in the most beautiful and unique way, so I take on a limited number of full service stationery clients each year to ensure exceptional customer service. These are my favorite projects, and I want to make sure you have excellent communication and access to me as your designer. These spaces do fill up before the year is out so be sure to inquire as soon as you know you'd like to work with me.
All of my stationery packages are fully custom and include unlimited artwork. Whether you'd like organic calligraphy, watercolor, custom monogram, botanical or venue illustration, or perhaps a mixture of elements, no problem! Every artwork element is designed by hand just for you and never reused. Guest addressing is also available and includes assembly and mailing services as well.

Want TO START DESIGNING YOUR CUSTOM WEDDING PAPER?
Please complete the Custom Design Questionnaire, and I will be in touch shortly after reviewing your responses. I'm looking forward to getting to know you both, and create beautiful heirloom wedding stationery that you can cherish for years to come!
Everything I offer is fully custom leaving many factors to take into consideration when putting together an estimate. The cost varies depending on details like the type of paper, printing methods, the number of enclosures, and of course the number of suites needed.
With such a large number of options and design details, it is no wonder that there is a wide range in pricing. We will discus your budget when we begin the design process to ensure that we are creating a suite that is at a comfortable price point for you. The majority of Simply Rooted brides budget $1,800 to $3,000 for a quantity of 100 suites. This may include details like handmade specialty papers, special printing options such as foil or letterpress, calligraphed guest addressing services, wax seals, fine art ribbon, and much more.
A common wedding suite includes the main invitation, mailing envelope with custom liner and printed return address, response card, and response envelope with custom liner and printed address.

Here's what other couples have asked
How long does the process take?
The custom stationery process, in an ideal world, is best to start at least 6 months prior to your wedding, earlier if you are mailing save the dates, so please consider this as you are planning out your timeline. If you're cutting it close, there are some ways I can cut down on time, so please let me know right away.
A full invitation suite typically take 3 months from start to finish, and should be mailed 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding (I do not recommend mailing any earlier). I typically begin working on reception pieces 1-2 months before your wedding.
How do I know what wording to use?
Trying to figure out wording, formality, and etiquette can certainly be a daunting task, but that's why I'm here! I'll send you a list of options for wording and walk you through any questions you may have.
How many invitations should I order?
When calculating your quantity, be sure to count addresses rather than individuals. Invitations are typically mailed to households, so your quantity will likely be lower than your headcount. I do, however, always recommend a few more than you think you need (around 15 to 20 extra). Nothing is worse than realizing some one accidentally got left off the list, so I always work with my brides to make sure we have extra for keepsakes and for those last minute additions. Adding more later can be costly and delay delivery.
When should I mail my invitations?
I recommend mailing your invitations out 6 to 8 weeks prior to your wedding. If it is a destination wedding it is best to send them 8 to 10 weeks prior. Don't forget the design process can take up to 3 months as well, so be sure to account for that. If you are also sending save the dates I recommend those be mailed out 6 to 9 months prior to your wedding date.
Is there a minimum order?
Wedding budgets can vary greatly, but typically 5% to 10% of the budget is allocated towards paper goods. As long as you book $1,000 worth of paper goods, we can do any combination of stationery, calligraphy and custom signage for your wedding.
What paper types and printing styles do you offer?
There are so many printing methods out there, but the ones I currently offer are flat-print, foil, and letterpress on handmade or cotton paper. To determine which method is best for you, we'll talk about your personal and wedding style, your vision and overall look and feel.
