Each individual and each event has its own personality. We understand the process can change from one project to another. With that in mind, we have structured the following process with great flexibility.
1 Defining Your Needs. The first thing we do is meet with you in person or over the phone to define your design and tactical requirements. Complete the Cardgirl Wants to Know form and email it back to us prior to your consultation if possible. This is not required, but will help us to be more useful to you during the initial meeting.
2 Moving Forward. Once you have decided to move forward with the Cardgirl design process, there is a $150 deposit towards the cost of your invitations which will be applied to your final order. Complete the invitation contract along with your deposit, and we’ll be all set to begin generating ideas!
3 Generating Ideas. Now that we know what you are looking for, we can begin designing your invitations. Typically a one week turnaround. A few proofs will be delivered to you via email.
4 Selecting a Design. Time to choose! What do & don’t you like about the proof? Give us a call or email to let us know your thoughts. This step is typically repeated a few times until we come up with the perfect invitation suite.
5 Final Approval. So, do you love it? Now we need your thumbs up to get started (if not, back to step 4…). We will send you an order agreement to sign, and the final payment is due.
6 Production and Delivery. This is the easy part. You just sit back and wait for the delivery of your final product! When the product is ordered we will discuss timelines for delivery. Typical delivery time is 5 weeks. If you need this rushed, we may be able to accommodate you.
Pricing is a little different for each project since the work is all custom. If you are looking for a rough price range for your project, please email or call (503.953.4056). If you have a budget in mind that you would like to meet, let us know and we may be able to meet your needs. You may also download our pricing sheet for some general pricing.
