Have you thought about hiring a graphic designer for your big day? As soon as the word, “designer” is uttered, some couples automatically assume, “Yikes! This isn’t in our budget.” As a former bride (and designer), I’m here to say, “IT IS POSSIBLE.” There are so many ways to save money while enjoying the perks that a custom design can offer. This process is just as important as hiring any other vendor for your special event. You want someone with great communication, style, and a person that understands your wedding day vision. Whether you want something whimsical, modern, vintage, traditional or out-of-the-box, the goal is to provide the perfect style and brand for each bride and groom. An invitation is the first glimpse into your big event. Make an impression.
Take the first step and contact the designer for a quote. Inquiries are free and you’ll never know if it’s within your budget until you ask!
Most custom pricing will vary according to your suite and is based on the amount of total pieces, the quantity of the press run and the type of print and paper options. Quotes are contingent on the needs of the client. I personally do not offer a price list because every suite is unique and I feel it’s unfair to charge the same price to all clients when their needs may be different.
Step Two. It’s all about the details. So, you have a design idea for your invitation but not sure how to execute it. A graphic designer will be able to guide you according to your budget as to what design options, paper, printing and additional paper goods will work best for you and your event. I love the concept and design process behind the branding of a wedding invitation suite. Tabibi Design offers a consultation with the wedding couple to discuss their likes, dislikes, vision, color palette and theme before I develop concepts. The brainstorming process involves sketches and layouts in scope with the couple’s vision to generate their special stationery.
It’s the designer’s job to produce something fabulous! It shouldn’t matter how large or small the suite is, we want you to be proud to show off your one-of-a-kind invitations! Each design is truly made with love. Most designer’s are willing to create other paper goods such as matching place cards, menu cards, programs, seating charts, table numbers and additional materials to coincide with the set-up of your wedding day. Be sure to include these extra items in your budget.
After you have secured a designer for your wedding, it’s time to relax! It’s our job to provide you with quality work and save you the headache of DIYing your stationery or settling for a design that doesn’t reflect your style.
