When should I begin the process?

What is the average investment?

What is your payment policy?

Most couples book their stationery services around ten months to one year out from the big day. Due to design and production time, I recommend ordering at least six months in advance (any later and there may be rush fees).

Pricing will vary based on the quantity, printing method, and embellishments.  Beach City Creative couples typically spend $1800 - $3750 on their stationery suite, and an additional $300-$1800 on their day-of details.

I require an initial retainer payment equal to 50% of the proposal to secure your date. Once your design is finalized, the remaining balance is due before printing and production begins. Day-of stationery items are invoiced separately and do not require an additional deposit.

Do you offer packages?

Do you have a quantity minimum? Do you have an order minimum?

How long does the process take?

Every couple is unique, and so is their stationery! You don’t have to fit into a pre-selected package, I’ll tailor your suite to suit you. After the initial consultation, you'll receive a proposal with custom package options based on your wants and needs!

There is no quantity minimum - I love intimate elopement stationery as much as giant guest list extravaganzas. There is a $1200 minimum investment for custom stationery suites. Request a custom quote for your quantity and preferred print methods! 

Timing will vary depending on the project and print methods, but a good rule of thumb is 1-2 months for the design process and 1-2 months for production and assembly. 

I need my invitations faster! Can my order be rushed?

Is assembly included? Do you offer mailing services?

Time got away from ya? Last minute decision? Totally get it. I’m happy to accommodate rush orders whenever possible, just know that there are some limitations. Rush orders are subject to a rush fee and clients are responsible for any additional expedited shipping or production charges from my vendor partners. 

One of my favorite parts of the process is putting all the pieces together and seeing your suite come to life! Assembly is included for all custom stationery suites. Your invitations will be assembled and stuffed into your envelopes, you just have to seal them, stamp them, and send them! I do not offer mailing services.

What types of printing do you offer?

Do you offer acrylic invitations?

Do you offer digital files?

The most popular print method is digital. I also offer foil stamping, letterpress, embossing, thermography, and engraving. You can learn more about each method here.

Acrylic invitations are trendy, but they can be difficult and expensive to mail (and honestly, they are not great for the environment). If your heart is set on it, I’m happy to connect you with other stationers who offer acrylic designs.

Digital invitation designs are not a service offered at this time.

Can I get physical samples?

Do you offer more than wedding invitations?

How do I get my invitations?

Yes! If you are a Beach City Creative couple, you’ll receive a sample package during the design process, which includes printed proofs, paper options, and embellishment samples. 

Absolutely! I love creating designs for graduations, birthdays and quinceañeras, bat and bar mitzvahs, baby showers, anniversaries, personal stationery, and more!

If you’re local to Southern California, local drop-off or pick up is available. Don’t have time to meet up? No worries - I will carefully package your order and can ship nationwide!
