Wedding FAQs aka “The Fine Print”

What does your process look like?

  • Consultation + Booking: After initial contact via the online form, you will receive an email with a detailed questionnaire all about your BIG day. It’s fun to answer! After I review and see if we are a good fit, you will be able to book a consultation with me, receive a quote and event timeline. We will chat about your dream invitation suite, look at tons of samples, and get a quick tour of the letterpress studio while we’re at it! Note: there’s a nonrefundable booking fee of $50 which will go towards your first appointment
  • 2-day Design + Order: at the appointment, we will decide on a 2-day design period where you will receive your first proof on the beginning of the first day, and be ordering by the end of the 2nd day. All of our design energy will be focused only on your wedding, resulting in beautiful and timely results.
  • Day-of-Ceremony Pieces: after the invitations are ordered, we will apply your custom style to the wedding day. This will be a similar process with the invitation suite, but a little less work because we already have your custom style designed.

How much should I expect to pay for luxury wedding invitations that are custom designed for me?

The average PaperFarmPress couple spends $6-$8 per 4-piece invitation suite.

How soon in advance do I need to book with you?

It is preferred that you inquire 6 months+ prior to your wedding to ensure we can fit you on our design calendar.

Do you work with only central California brides?

Yes, I love to connect with my brides face to face. And brides in the central valley are so thankful they are able to feel and touch the invitations they are going to receive, rather than rely on the screen. I'm located in Kingsburg, CA, which is centrally located to anyone living from Bakersfield to Fresno areas.

Do you require a down-payment or a deposit?

Yes, when you book with Paper Farm Press you are required to pay a $50 non-refundable retainer that locks in your place on our design calendar.

What printing options do you offer for invitations?

Though we specialize in letter press printing, We also offer digital printing (also called flat printing) and foil printing. Please be aware that letterpress and foil printing techniques will often result in a longer turnaround time for your custom wedding invitations, meaning we will have to start designing further in advance. Letterpress & foil invitations will also result in a higher cost for your invitations as well, so plan on spending around 25% more if you plan on these options.

What kind of materials do you use to print invitations and what accessories you offer?

Handmade paper, acrylic, vellum - you name it! We print on pocket folds and layered card stock as well. Popular accessories include wax seals, silk ribbons, lace, and vellum wraps. But really, I can anything to your invitation suite that makes it unique to your story.

Do you offer a package that includes day-of-ceremony printed pieces?

Absolutely! All of our clients love that we can do all their wedding stationery including menus, programs, seating charts, etc. And guests are always impressed with the cohesive stationery.
