I've complied a list of questions that often arise, if you have more, just mail away, I would be charmed to make your acquaintance x
How much do custom wedding invitations cost?
This is a tricky one as costs can vary widely. It all depends on how much you would like me to do. Would you like a single sided illustration? Or the full suite (main card, rsvp, details/second day option).
Would you like a trifold ? A map? There are many things to consider.
Here is a rough guide to pricing but depending on the suite some of these costs can be combined.
For a single sided (100% tailor made) illustration and the prices start at €400
Double sided illustration (100% tailor made) with text €550
Gate fold invitation (three full illustrations with or without map with accommodation, direction and R.S.V.P included) €675
Accordion fold (three full illustrations front and back with accommodation, direction and R.S.V.P included) €750
Rsvp card/ Day 2 invitation /Menu/ Evening invitation/€90
Mass booklet cover €250
Thank you cards €300
Single sided Save the Dates €300
Double sided Save The Dates €350
Seating plan/ Table names €150
Seating plan & Table titles €250
Wedding Gift/ Bespoke Painting €400
Family Crest €400
Pet Portrait €100
I charge for my services only-design and illustration. I do not print "in house" but I can arrange printing and shipping for you. Printing costs can vary but you can expect between 80c-2.00€ per invitation, which once again, depends on paper quality, amount and fold designs.
Can you work to my budget?
Often times, many of you lovelies come to me with a strict budget and while I totally understand (totally understand) where you are coming from, I am not a budget option.
Firstly it takes time to get to know you and to know, what you would like. Secondly I only have one set of paws and to paint your venue, your dogs, your favorite movies or just you guys, it al takes time . I promise to be with you guys every step of the way, making changes at the drop of a hat and adding in distant uncle whatshisname on a whim. All of this, plus more, is what it takes to make your invitation stand out and to give your guests the first glimpse of the magical festivities to come.
That said I would never turn down work, so if its a super small but lovely addition you need to make you swoon, get in touch, I'll do my best.
How long does it take?
The rules for weddings are that you "should" send out, Save The Dates from 9 months in advance and your invites 6 weeks in advance. This is a good system but I wouldn't fret if your timing is off, take it easy, most of your friends and family already know when it is, so if your behind, never fear.
For me to work best and to assure the results you want, please contact me 6/8 weeks before printing. If you need them in a hurry, just let me know, I will do my best to work to your deadline.
Can you arrange the printing for me?
Of course I can, I can do as much or as little as you like. Once we have discussed styles and numbers I will get a quote to you.
Can I arrange my own printing?
Indeed you can, I will send you or your printer the finalized digital files ready for print.
Can you send me my entire suite, wrapped printed and painted?
With pleasure, mail me for a quote.
Do you offer private commissions or design for businesses?
I most certainly do, please see my www.kittymoss.com site for my work or mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Any other questions, drop me a line. I look forward to hearing from you.
Wishes and kisses,
