3 months in advance of when you wish to start any project at least is advised as design slots get booked in advance.
Anything from 12 months to 18 months before your wedding, everyone is different.
Traditionally invitations are sent 3-6 months before your wedding to guests. So allow at least 3 months before that for design time.
It varies from 3-8 weeks depending on detail and work involved – see HERE for more information.
I send all orders signed for and also tracked if requested.
Hot foiling is when a metal plate is created with a bespoke design, pressed onto card with heat and foil leaving an indented shiny metalic effect.
Price is dependent on detail – Ink starts from £120 then ink and colour start from £200.
Again this varies depending on budgets. On average an Aimee Willow Designs bride spends 7% of their wedding budget on all stationery & design.
I would recommend a gatefold or z fold invite – it’s one item that can still fit a fair amount of information on and with colour print only this also keeps costs down.
I ask for a 50% deposit to book your design time, then the remainder is due before final artwork is sent to print.
