READY TO GET STARTED?
Great! First-thing-first: Tell us a little bit about yourself, your partner and the wedding event you have in mind. If you’re really open to sharing, we love engagement stories!
We’ve put together a brief questionnaire to break the ice. The questions are designed to help us get a sense of how far along you are in the wedding planning process and the atmosphere you are trying to create for that special day.
INITIAL DESIGN + REVIEW
Now that we’ve had a chance to get to know each other, we will create 2 designs of the main invitation card for your review. We start with the main card because it’s the center-piece of the suite and often design decisions made on this piece inform the other inserts like the RSVP card, information card, etc.
It’s important you consider both design options carefully, provide feedback, good or bad (we promise you won’t hurt our feelings!), and ask questions. Remember, our goal is to bring your vision to life.
SUITE BUILD + REVIEW
At this point in the process the direction of the main invitation card has been agreed upon and the rest of the suite, with the details you have provided, is delivered for review. Two rounds of revisions are included in the flat-rate price.
FINAL FILES + PRINTING
Hooray! You now have the invitation suite of your dreams. We will now provide you with print ready files in the form of high resolution PDFs and JPGs. These file types will cover your needs whether you print at a brick and mortar print shop or through an online retailer.
If you would like Studio Eighty Seven to facilitate printing we would be happy to help! We have relationships with print shops, letterpress printers, and have experience working with a handful of online vendors.
Below is an outline of all costs associated with the design of a custom wedding invitation suite. We know the cost of planning a wedding can add up, so we’ve done our best to outline all costs and fees that might come up during our process. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

As outlined, the package price for a custom invitation suite includes the delivery of high resolution print files.

This does not include the cost of the printing itself, which is determined by the print vendor. The printing cost will be influenced by a number of factors including, but not limited to: vendor selection, quantity, desired paper-stock, and desired printing processes like letterpress, die-cut and foil emboss.
