Work with me, Amanda from Silverplate Press on you custom wedding invitations
 

Let me guess, you're picky when it comes to your wedding invitations. You know what you don't want, and would love your invitations to stand out and be memorable. I've got you covered, friend. 


Our Process

Step 1 — Questionnaire for your customize quote

This gives me a very good idea of what you're dream invitations are an how I can best help make them real. It will let me know if you want just design, something from our collection or you'd like to have your dream invitations professional designed & printed for your unique wedding day. Within 2-3 business days you will get a details proposal with all the price breakdowns in your email. 

Step 2 — Consultation & Booking

Once you're happy with the quote, we'll book your consultation, just so that we are all on the same page with your order. We'll chat over Facetime / Skype or phone. I will do up the contract for you at which point a 50% deposit is due. The remaining is due when your invitations are ready and before I ship them.

Step 3 – Designing & Making

I will start designing your invitations, using your wording (I can help you with this part) and your design inspiration that we had talked about in your questionnaire and consultation. Bespoke and Design Only orders come with 3 initial design concepts and 3 rounds of changes. If you're choosing a design that is perfect just the way it is from our collection, you get one initial design and up to 3 rounds of changes. Once you are 100% happy with the PDF proof, it's go time.

For Design Only couples, I will send you the final print-ready high resolution file that you can print anywhere you'd like. For all others, I carefully make each invitation, using an obsessive eye for detail and quality. Whatever printing process you choose , you and your guests will be in awe with them! You will love them!

If you choose, I can even assemble your invitations for you, which would mean stuffing each envelope, applying postage and wax seals, ribbons and every little piece that make your invitations special. 

Step 4 – Shipping your invitations

Once your invitations are complete, I will express post them to you! Shipping is free on all domestic order over $500. Before I ship them I will invoice you the remaining amount. A couple days later you will be holding your invitations in your hands for the first time! Making your wedding day officially official and setting the stage of what will be the most amazing day! 

 



Investment

what do letterpress invitations cost? And other questions around pricing.

Most weddings have a budget to work within and I'm here to help you have stunning invitations that celebrate your wedding, no matter your budget, I have an option for you. 

Design Only — My design services are $80/hour, with a minimum of one hour design time. If I were to guess, the average invitation design takes me about 3–5 hours, ($250 – $400) but that totally depends on the design inspiration, and the number of different cards to design – such as insert cards, menus, etc. I'll be able to give you a better idea of pricing once you fill out the questionnaire. 

From our collection — Prices are highly dependent on the printing process you choose, the paper thickness, and number of colours, what pieces you want (like rsvp, inserts, etc.). So many options! To give you a general idea, the average price $1500, but it can also go much higher than that. Best to fill out the questionnaire and I'll let you know a price breakdown within 2-3 business days.

Bespoke Invitations – If you want the highest quality and tailored design for your wedding day, this is the way to go. I will custom design your invitations and print them using my letterpress or using hot foil or digital printing. All are done with the highest quality paper and ink. Again the prices are highly dependent on the printing process you choose, the paper thickness, the number of colours and the items you want. For bespoke invitations the average price is $2000 for custom designed and letterpress invitations.
