COMPLIMENTARY VISIT TO ONE OF OUR STUDIOS
The process starts with a complimentary consultation either in person or by phone with Jessica or one of our JLP team members. In which we get to know each other and learn all about your event. In studio appointments, Skype dates, and phone calls are always available for our clients. This is your opportunity to review our collections and pick out what you love … and discuss pricing!
ESTIMATES & CONTRACT
Following your selection you will be provided with an on the spot estimate and if you’d like to book… we’d setup an invoice for your order and subsequently a Contract. Followed by our Template for Guest Addresses, our Wedding Wording Guide and our blank Wording Template. Designs will begin once we receive a signed contract, a 50 % deposit, and your text. Rush printing/production is also available, but a modest fee may apply.
We will present designs for your review once a contract is established a down payment is received. Designs are emailed to the client for review on a scheduled basis once the client has emailed the “JLP Invitation Wording” template/word document. The sooner you submit your wording/content … the sooner your design can be turned around. Ready to Order Designs – three rounds of complimentary design proofs are included. Custom Designs – up to 10 rounds of complimentary design proofs are included. Subsequent proofs for either order are $25 each round.
PRINTING APPROVAL & FINAL SIGN OFF
Before printing begins, you will be e-mailed a FINAL electronic Digital Proof (color Adobe PDF file) to review for grammar, spelling, punctuation and accuracy of information. Upon your approval, the files will be sent to the printer and production will begin. The remaining balance is due at pick up or prior to shipping date.
PRINTING AND PRODUCTION
Depending on the complexity of your order, its pieces, materials and parts, it will be ready in 4-6 weeks. This timeframe is heavily dependent on our current production schedule and we will be very informative and communicative with you as to when things are to be completed and ready for pick up. Either way, we strive to have client orders (for wedding invitations) approx. 90 days prior to your event date. Specific days and times for pick up are scheduled between the client and the JLP team. We offer both digital and hand calligraphy which may increase production time if a final list of addresses is not received prior to printing. Designer and the JLP team will schedule accordingly in that instance.
DELIVERY AND SHIPPING
We offer various options for pickup. You may pick up your order at our NYC or Bay Shore studios or we can ship it to you anywhere in the world via USPS, UPS, FedEx or other. The cost of shipping depends on the weight and we would alert you of the additional fee ahead of time.
PRICES AND POLICIES
Collection Design Set pricing can be obtained by emailing, calling or stopping in to our studio!
Most custom design pricing begins at $1500. Slightly varying in the instances where your desired quantity falls below or above our average of 120 sets. Since all of our custom work is designed and conceptualized just for you and the needs of each client invariably differ, it’s best to setup a consultation with Jessica or one of our team member. In studio appointments, Skype dates, and phone calls are always available for our clients as well!
We accept all major credit cards by way of PayPal, but personal checks are our preferred method of payment.
The Jessica Leigh Paperie LOGO will be printed on the back of pieces at the discretion of the Designer, unless otherwise noted.
PLEASE MAIL RESPONSIBLY
Here are a few mailing Do’s + Don’ts to get your invitations on their way + delivered beautifully!
DO bring a full invitation set to the Post Office to be weighed for proper postage
DON’T forget to stamp your RSVP envelopes/post cards
DO triple-check the envelopes we’ve printed for you. Make sure that all addresses are correct and that we didn’t miss anyone! Let us know if you need new envelopes (for guest(s) you forgot to add!) or reprinted envelopes (if there was a mistake). No need to hand write addresses … we’re happy to help. Free of charge!
DON’T forget to ask the Post Office about .:. HAND CANCELLING .:.
Hand cancelling is when they manually stamp the postage as “paid” to help prevent it from being damaged by the machines! There is no charge for hand-cancelling … just ask for it very nicely!
DO have a envelope stuffing party. The more hands the better. Happy Mailing!
