IF YOU’RE ANYTHING LIKE US, CROSSING THINGS OFF YOUR TO-DO LIST SOOTHES YOUR SOUL
With plans still uncertain as we head into 2021, alleviate some of the wedding pressure and start planning your save the dates & invitations. At dot & bow paperie we want to help you every step of the way with your wedding stationery during this challenging time!
What can we accomplish now?
We can accomplish a lot now! We can start planning by zeroing in on design, budget, concept, cardstock, colors, envelopes, timeframe, and a firm price quote for you.
Let us help you get as much of your design firmed up as possible now. Then once the specific details like date, time, venue, etc. are finalized, we can add them into your layout.
HOW TO GET STARTED:
We pride ourselves on our ability to collaborate with clients whether interacting remotely or meeting with them in person.
dot & bow paperie CONTACTLESS CONSULTATIONS
Even before the pandemic, we excelled at creating custom invitations with couples while communicating purely via email, phone, or video chat.
So if you love the idea of chatting remotely from the comfort of your own home, you’re in luck! We’ love to discuss your ideas via email, phone or video chat with you. Based on our conversation, we will mail you a custom sample pack built around your wishlist of design elements.
SOCIALLY DISTANCED IN-SHOP CONSULTATIONS
Or let us know if you’d prefer to set up a time to meet with us in our brick & mortar shop. We will reserve our consultation room for you and a guest so you can see all your options.
Consultations are available by appointment during our regular business hours (Monday-Friday between 9am and 6pm). If you’re unable to meet during those hours, please let us know when you’re available and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
If you have a design concept in mind…
That’s great! Share your ideas with us via email, mail or in person.
Share your vision: color samples, Pins, examples that speak to you, and we will share what we think you’ll love from our vast collection of original designs and artwork.
Email any ideas and inspiration to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have no idea what you want…
That’s great too because we love to share our ideas! We have more than 20 years of experience in helping couples zero in on just the right concept and design for their budget. We will share an array of ideas we think you’ll love from our vast collection of original designs and artwork.
You might find a dot & bow paperie original design you love just as it is. Or we are happy to mix & match elements from any of our original designs to create just what you’re looking for. Or we can create something completely unique just for you.
PRO TIP from OUR DESIGNERS about INSPIRATION:
“Visit Pinterest, Etsy, or even just do a google image search for keywords that describe the feel you’d like for your wedding. The more inspiration you can gather and pass along to your wedding vendors, the greater your creative collaboration will be with them!”
Once we zero in on your budget, your design ideas & your cardstock and envelope preferences, we will give you a firm price quote.
Once you’re happy with your price quote, we can get started right away if you’d like!
PRO TIP from OUR DESIGNERS about BUDGET:
“Be up front about your budget… designers love to come up with creative solutions to help customers achieve the feel they want no matter what the budget is!”
Start planning by making a Preliminary Design Deposit
We’re sensitive to the fact that you have to make wise choices with your wedding budget right now. We’re happy to work with you so you can make incremental deposits throughout the design process as your certainty about your plans grows.
Your deposit will be based on the complexity of your design and the number of pieces you’d like us to design. A typical digital design deposit ranges anywhere from $75-$150. Once we zero in on a firm price quote for you, we can determine what your minimum digital design deposit would be.
What do you get when you make a Preliminary Design Deposit?
First and foremost, getting started with a Preliminary Design Deposit will give you peace of mind… you’ll be crossing crucial tasks off your to-do list without overextending your budget. Our goal is to allow you to be ready to hit the ground running once your plans are set in stone!
1.) We will create a preliminary digital proof of your save the date or your invitations based on all your ideas we’ve discussed… we’ll include your tentative details or we’ll include placeholder information if your details aren’t firm yet.
2.) We will go back and forth with you via email to make any tweaks you’d like to the design.
3.) If your plans are still tentative, then we will keep your design safe & sound until you’re ready to add in the specific details.
PRO TIP from OUR DESIGNERS about PLANNING AHEAD:
“The more you can accomplish early on with your planning, the better. Wedding Stationery is one of the most precise & detail-oriented categories you will have to deal with when planning your wedding so you want to give yourself as much wiggle room as you can to keep your stress levels as low as possible.”
The garden floral theme invitation (pictured right) and plenty of other design styles are available on our Etsy.com Shop.
