When in my planning process should I contact you?

Great question! Save the Dates are traditionally mailed out 6-10 months before the wedding, and formal Invitation Suites are usually mailed out 6-9 weeks before the wedding date. The guest reply date (RSVP) is typically 4 weeks before the wedding date.  Our process for Save the Dates is typically 6 weeks while a full wedding suite is around 8 weeks, so we recommend scheduling your design consultation at least three months before your desired mailing date!

How do we get started?

You can fill out our contact form HERE to tell us a bit more about your event, or give us a call at 760.401.7592 Monday – Friday from 9:30am – 5pm PST to speak to Chelsea about your design needs! If we seem like a good fit we’ll send you a more in-depth questionnaire to get all the details!

How many invitation suites should I order?

We recommend ordering about 10-15% more invitations then your guest list head count. Last minute guests inevitably come up and you may want to have a few extra invites for keepsakes!

IS THERE AN ORDER MINIMUM?

Nope, not for invitation suites! Only on certain add-ons like printed menus, ceremony programs or thank you cards, where the minimum is 25.

CAN I PURCHASE DIGITAL FILES?

Yes! We offer digital files for the brides or planners that like to DIY. Our one-time design fee covers the time it takes to design and then you can either have us print your designs for you or take them to a print shop of your choice!

WHAT PAPERS DO YOU USE?

Our print studio offers over 250+ papers to choose from for everything from invitations and envelopes to envelope liners and any other designed good! We bring our paper samples to consultations when a client is local and shipping arrangements can be made to order samples for brides who live out of our area.

CAN I SEE A PROOF FIRST?

We offer realistic digital proofs that show the detail of your designs before going to print. Flat printed proofs are available for an extra cost and an additional 1-2 week turnaround time. Just ask us how to set this up with you!

ARE THERE OTHER PIECES TO MATCH MY DESIGN?

Absolutely! We offer tons of designed add-ons to match your invitations so your special day will be customized from top to bottom with everything from calligraphy and dinner menus to escort cards and signage. We offer day-of and on-site designs and signage and can also send your paper goods via USPS. Email chelsea@saltandstagweddings.com to request a list of add-ons we offer!

WHAT TYPES OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?

We use a payment platform called HoneyBook which accepts any card type or mailed personal check. Your payments can also be automated for easy processing! For all invitation projects, we bill a 50% non-refundable deposit up front and the second 50% before shipping (which is billed separately).

Why do you price everything separately?

Our one-time design fee covers our time spent on the design and offers you the option of having just the digital files. We then offer printing services piece-by-piece so each bride can customize her look to be exactly what she wants! We offer 3 tiers of paper and printing (Basic, Premium and Deluxe) for the ultimate mix and match.
