Our Process

We’re here to help you with the ordering process. Below are the basic steps, but please feel free to contact us with questions. Let’s get this process started!

mailbox

Order a Sample Package

As long as time allows, ordering a sample package is a great first step. Seeing the samples allows you to better understand the printing methods and paper stocks available to you. Aside from the samples you requested, this package will include paper samples and our color and foil charts.

paper-suite

Pick Your Perfect Paper Suite

Browse our collection designs or our custom gallery to see which suits you! If you've fallen in love with a particular collection design, or perhaps, are having trouble choosing one design, contact us and one of our project managers will be in touch to get the conversation started! If you are interesting in going the custom route, fill out the inquiry form at the bottom of the custom gallery page and a project manager will follow up shortly to discuss more!

computer

Customize and Quote

After a call or a meeting to discuss your stationery vision, your project manager will put together a pricing proposal for you. If you say "yes," we will send you a design agreement to get your project underway!

credit-card

Sign Agreement and Pay Deposit

You will need to review and sign a design agreement as well as submit a non-refundable deposit. This amount will be specified in your pricing proposal, but is usually half of your base price. This fee covers our time to generate your electronic proof.

wording

Wording

Along with the agreement, your project manager will send you a wording guide and template in order to gather your invitation wording. If you are using our calligraphy services, she will also send you our Excel template for addressing at that time.

proofing

The Proofing Process

If you select a collection design, a design proof will be sent to you electronically within 4-6 business days of receiving your wording, signed agreement and deposit. If you desire a custom design, your proofs will be sent to you based on a timeline created by your project manager. Our collection designs include one initial proof and one round of revisions (if needed). Each additional round of revisions will be billed at our hourly design rate, outlined in your proposal. Rounds of revisions are for any small text or design edits.

approval

Proof Approval and Final Payment

Once you approve the proof, we’ll charge your remaining balance before printing begins. Orders cannot be canceled after proof approval.

shipping

Shipping or Pick Up

Once your items are ready to ship, we’ll contact you and offer you UPS ground service or an expedited shipping service and let you know costs at this time. If you are local and would like to pick up, we will let you know as soon as your items are ready.

rush

Rush Services

Rush services are available for all designs. Should you need these services, please alert your project manager and she will let you know the applicable rush fees.

envelopes

Extra Envelopes and Early Shipment of Envelopes

CBP can handle envelope addressing for you, but if you choose to handle this on your own, you will receive an extra 10% envelopes at no additional cost to allow for calligraphy errors. Should you need more envelopes in addition to the 10%, please let us know.

If you are handling your own addressing and want your envelopes shipped early, a $100 fee will apply. Please alert your project manager if you are interested!
