Ordering Your Leighwood Collection Suite
STEP ONE: CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE SUITE
Choose from any of the Leighwood Collection suites. While each suite is customizable, choose a suite that best aligns with your wedding style. If you aren't sure about which suite you like the best, or want to get a feel for what your favorite suite looks like, feel free to order a sample suite. All samples will be shipped for free and will arrive as a full suite so that you can see it in it's entirety. Once you've chosen your favorite suite, the hard part is out of the way!
STEP TWO: DETERMINE THE NUMBER OF PIECES IN YOUR SUITE AND NUMBER OF INVITATIONS NEEDED
Decide how many pieces you'd like to see included in your invitation suite. If you're laid back or having a more casual wedding, a simple two-piece suite may be right for you. If you'd like to inform guests of weekend plans, hotel accommodations, or other information not included on the invitation, you may need the three-piece suite. Round out either the two or three-piece suites with a Save the Date to set the tone of your wedding from the very beginning. Next determine the number of invitations you'll need to order. Take a look at your guest look and figure one invitation suite per family or couple, plus add on a few extras for last minute additions to the guest list and to have as keepsakes.
STEP THREE: ADD YOUR EVENT DETAILS AND CUSTOMIZATION OPTIONS
Once you've chosen to purchase, you'll be directed to a pop-up window where you can include all of your event information. This will also give you the opportunity to request any customizations to your suite: color choices, wording, requested envelope colors, and more. You will also be able to express your interest in any additional add ons to your suite such as guest addressing, envelope liners, and day of details like menus and place cards. Please note that any additional items will be billed separately from your invitation suite.
STEP FOUR: MAKE YOUR PAYMENT TO SECURE YOUR EVENT ON MY DESIGN CALENDAR
I ask that 100% of the payment be made at the time of purchase. Any additional add ons will be billed separately and payment will be due at a later date. The purchase of your Leighwood Collection suite secures your date on my design calendar and ensures a great client experience.
In the event of a cancellation, refund requests will be handled two ways:
- Prior to work starting on your suite: 50% of your payment will be refunded; 50% of your payment is non-refundable
- After work has begun on your suite: 25% of your payment will be refunded if files have not been sent to print; 0% of your payment will be refunded after files have been sent to print
If you are not able to make 100% of your payment at the time of purchase, please email me at email@example.com to make alternate arrangements. In this case, 50% of your total payment will be required as a non-refundable deposit to secure your date on my design calendar.
STEP FIVE: SIT BACK AND CHECK WEDDING INVITATIONS OFF YOUR TO-DO LIST!
Know that by investing in Leighwood Design Studio for your wedding stationery, you're in caring hands. Each client is more than just a client, they're a friend. I aim to make your wedding planning process as stress-free as possible because I know that being engaged is a special season in everyone's lives that should be enjoyed fully. From communication to my digital proofing process, I strive to make this piece of your planning easy, relaxing, and enjoyable.
The Design Process
Leighwood Collection invitation suites generally take 6–8 weeks from design start date to your suggested date to mail your invitations to complete. This allows for revisions to be made, printing, packaging, and shipping. It also allows two weeks for you to assemble and address your invitation suites to get them ready for the mail. Please consider this timeline prior to ordering your suite.
If a shortened timeline is necessary (ie, less than 4 months til your wedding date), please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask about rush delivery.
Work on your collection will begin between 12 and 16 weeks prior to your wedding date, if no save the date is ordered. You will receive a timeline upon booking your date with specific dates for your unique suite, based on when you'd like to have them in the mail and need responses to the venue. I will customize your suite based on the customizations requested and you will receive your first digital proof in your client portal and inbox.
Each digital proof will include:
- A full mockup of your invitation suite with a choice of 2–3 envelope color options
- Detail mockups of your invitation, response card, and details card (if applicable)
- Return address styles for your invitation and response envelope (as well as guest addressing style, if included in your collection)
- Envelope postage styles (if applicable)
You will be able to provide feedback on any changes that are needed to be made, within the scope of your suite, as well as choose an envelope color. During the proofing process you'll be allowed three (3) rounds of changes. If additional changes are necessary after the third round, each additional proof will be billed at $15/each.
Following final approval on your invitation suite, all files will be readied and sent for print. Once finished, all pieces will be packaged together and shipped for free via USPS Priority Mail two weeks prior to your suggested mailing date. Your suite will arrive unassembled (unless otherwise requested), with one sample assembled suite.
Please note that unless added on to your collection, no postage will be included on your envelopes. Envelope postage is to be provided by you. (Unless of course, you ask me to take care of it for you!)
For suites with day of details included, work will begin on these 6 weeks prior to your wedding date and follow the same proofing guidelines as your invitation suite. Day of details will also ship for free via USPS Priority Mail and will arrive 7–10 days prior to your wedding date.
