1. What is my design process?
Send me an email via Etsy or this site outlining what you're looking for, including this info (if you are still unsure about the scope, just shoot me an e-mail and we'll work it out!):
1. The custom item you are looking for (Invitation, map, save the date, etc.)
2. The number of locations (if ordering a map). Each map include 3 locations ($10 additional location or 5 for $40)
3. Would you like a welcome note, Itinerary and/or directions on reverse side (please add $60)
4. Standard or rush order (2 days) (please add $145 for rush)
5. The number of prints (see prices are below).
After you send me an email I will get back to you with a quote or listing for your order as well as answer any questions you may have ASAP.
Once you purchase your custom listing (via my Etsy online shop) you will receive a link to a questionnaire from my shop with your email receipt. This questionnaire will have all the info I need to get started on your map including a Google maps link of your featured locations. If using Etsy please use the convo feature and use our original thread. Once I get the information I need I'll get back to you on a time for first proof! The entire standard process usually takes about 3 weeks.
2. What sizes do I like to use for each item?
My favorite sizes for each item I design:
Save the date:
- 4 x 6 - magnet
- 4 x 6 - postcard
- 5 x 7 - card with envelope
- 6 x 9 - over-sized postcard or card
- 5 x 7
Invitation enclosure (RSVP; Hotel Information, etc...):
- 3.5 x 5, 4 x 4, 4 x 6 - Just a tad smaller than your map & invitation.
Utilize the most your space for all of your information.
Map for Hotel Guest totes:
Map on one side with a welcome note and itinerary and/or directions on the back
- 8.5 x 11 - flier size (flat print or 3 fold)
- 6 x 9
- 5 x 7 (smallest I like to go for hotel guests)
Slightly smaller or the same size as your invitation.
3. What is our turnaround time?
For your first proof, expect 3-5 business days from the time I get your questionnaire back. Please inquire about proof turnaround times.
4. What is our print turnaround time?
Please allow 7-10 business days.
5. Do I rush jobs?
Yes, for a fee of $145 I can have your first proof of your map to you within a few days to a week of your order. Purchase this listing with your map to have it rushed. Overnight rush jobs are $300 additional.
