No matter what the celebration - birthdays, showers, religious milestones, graduations - our favorite thing to do at gpc is seamlessly tailor the first announcement of that momentous occasion to your every wish. Learn more about the process of the creation of custom invitations below.


Think of your custom invitations as a work of commissioned art...created just for you and curated to your every wish! Due to the beautiful and timely nature of this process, kindly note that my minimum spend on custom invitations and envelopes is $140 + tax, regardless of quantity. This investment includes:

  • A 30 minute initial design consultation to get to know more about your celebration and how we can make it unique
  • A curated lookbook for your event including 3 initial design idea sketches to choose from
  • 2 additional rounds of proofing after initial designs are created
  • An unforgettable invitation sure to wow every guest and make for an incredible keepsake from this momentous occasion!

timeline & process

The custom invitation process is a 6-step journey:

  1. Booking : Once we nail down all the nitty gritties of your custom quote, you will receive a contract and invoice. GPC requires 50% of your total paid upfront before any design work can be done. Once the contract is signed and your 50% retainer fee is paid, your spot will be reserved on our calendar.
  2. Initial Sketches Coffee Date : Once you're all booked in, you'll recieve a questionnaire from me and we will schedule our initial design consultation. I'll start dreaming up your initial sketches based off of your feedback from the form. Then, whether over real coffee or just the Coffeehouse Spotify Sounds playing in the background as we video chat...this is the when we will nail down layout, wording, and any other overall elements of the design. You will have three initial sketches to choose from as a starting point and we will tweak things accordingly to make sure I understand your vision.
  3. Design Time : After we have completely ensured that we're on the same page as to your wants and needs, I start crafting up actual designs based on your feedback. Once this initial design phase is complete, I will send you your first set of design proofs to look over and swoon!
  4. Revisions : You will review the proofs and give me feedback and revisions. Two rounds of proofing are included to tweak your design until it's postively perfect! If you're purchasing day-of details, you will also receive proofs for those pieces in the second round of proofing.
  5. Production : Once designs are finalized, you will be asked to sign a final approval/print release form. Once this is signed and your remaining balance is paid in full, your invitations/day-of details will move into production.
  6. Shipping or Pick Up : Once all pieces are completed and in my hands, I will then ship the pieces to you for assembly and mailing. Alternatively, I offer assembly and mailing services for $1/invitation
I can't wait to work with you - I already know we can create something magical!
