What it's actually like to work with a custom stationery designer

My favourite way to work with clients is to design wedding invitations from scratch. That means I get to know you, your style, and your vision for your wedding day. I love gathering inspiration from the decor or the venue or even something that you two like doing together.

In a nutshell it works like this:

  • You email me with an inquiry. (hi!) hello@silverplatepress.com OR click here

  • You get any initial questions answered + we set up a time to have your free consultation

  • You get a proposal with quote options, and you get free invitation samples mailed to you. You can feel the quality of work so that you're totally comfortable with your decision.

  • Everything else is basically done online – design proofs and sign-offs. You get 3 initial designs and 3 rounds of changes. Sometimes we get back on the phone if you want to talk things out about the design or what you need.

  • Once you are 100% happy with the design, then I make them for you using an incredibly old and beautiful letterpress. One sheet at a time, one impression at a time. It usually takes me at least a full day.

  • I carefully package up your invitation suite and ship it to you (Canadian shipping is free)

  • usually, there is a very excited email that follows with something like ...

"Everything is so much more beautiful in person. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this work! We are so pleased that we decided to go with you and now have a beautiful keepsake to keep forever" from Ariel, a recent client

This work is what fills me up to the brim and I honestly can’t be more honoured that I get to be part of your wedding story.
