How far in advance should I order my wedding invitations?

Invitations should be sent out six to eight weeks prior to your big day. Please allow for 10-12 weeks for design and production time.


HOW MUCH SHOULD I BUDGET FOR MY WEDDING STATIONERY?

You should plan on budgeting about $2,500 - $4,500+ for your Invitation Suite Stationery. Pricing depends on printing method and quantities.

Calligraphy is more expensive because of the individual handwritten nature of the art. All calligraphy design is done by hand before being combined with typed and illustrated elements for a full design. Each piece of stationery is unique to each client, and I do not place a cap on design revisions throughout the creative process. Custom calligraphy stationery is not for everyone, but if you are looking for a truly bespoke keepsake for your big day, it is a decision you won't regret!


i'm having my invitations printed through shutterfly, but still want calligraphy addressES. can you do that?

Yes! If you already have your invitations for your event designed and printed elsewhere, and are just looking for that extra personal touch, Brown Fox is available to do calligraphy envelope addressing. Please visit ENVELOPES for envelope addressing pricing.


DO YOU OFFER JUST PRINTING SERVICES?

Yes, if you have design files ready to be printed, and are interested in digital, letterpress, or foil, contact me for pricing!

To retain cohesiveness of design and execution, I do not provide digital design files for personal printing.
