Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS A CUSTOM WEDDING MAP?
Chances are you found us because of our unique wedding maps and wedding map invitations, but a map can be used for any special occasion. We are the ORIGINAL wedding map designers as they are commonly seen now. Custom maps are illustrations of a specific area that include locations for your event or favorite spots. They are meant to be keepsakes and touchable memories of life's greatest moments, especially weddings. Our Maps are designed by Carol, the best in the business. You will have personal contact with her as she walks you on your journey to a create a perfect custom piece. A custom map along with an itinerary will enhance your guests experience and guide them through the days events. Include your favorite spots for food and entertainment to keep out of guest occupied while you focus on your day!
We specialize in maps, so when it comes to incorporating them in save-the dates, invitations, day of material, drop offs, the possibilities are endless.
WHEN SHOULD I ORDER MY CUSTOM MAP OR INVITATION?
It is recommended you mail your wedding invitations out about 2 months before you wedding. For personalized designs of previous work leave about 2 to 3 weeks for the design and printing process. For custom designs please leave 3 to 4 weeks.
DO YOU OFFER RUSH SERVICES?
Rush orders based on our availability and will require additional fees. Please try to leave as much time as possible to complete your order. We also offer expedited printing and/or shipping (fees apply)
CAN I PRINT ON MY OWN?
We DO NOT allow clients to print our designs. The printing process is very important and we trust our printers; they are some of the best in the business!
CAN YOU DO LETTERPRESS OR FOIL PRINTING?
Yes! We offer letterpress and foil printing, as custom orders. We even have a large laser cut portfolio! Please contact us for a quote.
DO YOU OFFER CALLIGRAPHY SERVICES?
Yes, please contact me for a quote.
CAN THE WORDING BE CUSTOMIZED?
Yes, all wording can be customized to fit your needs.
WHAT ABOUT FONTS?
Yes, we have too many fonts to list, so more than likely I have it. Should I not have the font, we can discuss our options about purchasing.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PERSONALIZED AND CUSTOM DESIGNS?
Personal Designs are modified designs of previous work to suite your needs. Custom designs are completely new and unique designs made especially for you. Custom designs can be anything your heart desires.
HOW MANY PROOFS ARE INCLUDED?
I include 6 rounds of proofs during my design process after the first proof is sent. This should be more than enough to review and make changes, but we request that you take some time to review your proofs with your partner and consolidate your change requests to be sure. Pay close attention to grammar and spelling. All requests must be in writing. There will be a fee of $10.00 for each additional round of proofing.
HOW MANY SHOULD I ORDER?
To determine how many invitations you need we recommend that you create your guest list grouping everyone by household. You will need to send one invitation to each household. A rule of thumb is to add 15% onto your final count to reach your total. If you are dropping off maps or handing them out at the event add 20% onto the actual head count. Menu's and Programs should also be the headcount plus 20%.
CAN YOU GUEST ADDRESSES ENVELOPES?
Yes, absolutely. We offer calligraphy and handwriting services or we can digitally print the addresses as well. Please notify me at time of order for calligraphy or handwriting services. We offer a rush service depending on availability.
DO YOU CREATE DAY OF GOODS, LIKE MENUS AND PROGRAMS?
Absolutely! We can create anything you can think of that can be printed on paper! Seating charts, place cards, guest books, door hangers, you name it. We also offer totes and other items. Inquire for details.
CAN YOU ASSEMBLE ALL OF OUR INVITATION SUITE?
We're happy to for an additional fee based on the number of invitations ordered and items included in the suite, and banding. Please contact us for an exact quote.
CAN YOU MAIL ALL OF OUR INVITATIONS?
Yes, we would be happy to provide mailing services for you. This would require adding envelope addressing, assembly and the price of postage. We are happy to get you a quote for adding these services if you are interested.
HOW LONG ARE YOUR QUOTES VALID?
Our prices occasionally change due to supplier and vendor costs. All quotes are valid for 30 days. Prices will NOT change once deposit is received within 30 days.
