Some Happy Bespoke Clients…
“Quite simply the best stationer! Millie was creative yet understanding of our vision, took initiative yet patient with our indecisiveness and beyond all extremely talented – everything a bride needs in the weeks leading up to their wedding!
We worked with Millie to create our wedding invitations, on the day stationary as well as a lot of personalisation to make our day bespoke – she even designed a monogram for us which was embossed on our all our stationery. Thank you Millie, we wouldn’t have been able to make our day so bespoke without you!”
“Millie Stone designed our wedding invites and we were over the moon with them! We also commissioned her to design an illustration of our wedding venue to include on the invite and it was the perfect addition. We had various different info cards and RSVPs resulting in numerous combinations of who received what and Amelia couldn’t have been more helpful, making the whole process a lot simpler for us.”
1. The First Meeting
Working closely with our clients is what we love to do. Normally the first step to working together is a phone or Zoom call so you can decide whether we are a good match to work together!
During this call we take your guest quantities, wedding date, colour schemes and general wedding vibes in order to put together a rough quotation after the call. Standard lead time for an event invite job is 6-8 weeks, but we are able to work to most lead times.
2. Quotation & Pricing
After our initial meeting, we email over the rough price for your dream wedding stationery along with a moodboard if it is required.
Once the quotation has been received, we then discuss budget and how to achieve the bespoke design at the desired price for you.
Included within the prices quoted is unlimited design, digital and physical proofs and optional extra samples if these are required.
3. Initial Design
After your quotation has been approved, we request a 50% down payment which means design work can now commence. Initial designs are sent over within one week of payment.
For the initial part of the design stage, we put together 6 very unique designs based on your desired scheme, and email them over within one week of payment. Unlimited development design is included after each stage, as we hone in on the perfect design.
4. Ordering of Proofs
At Millie Stone, one of the things we pride ourselves on is attention to detail. After you have approved the digital design, we then get a physical proof printed and sent to your home so you can see the final printed version of your stationery before ordering all items.
Changes are welcome at this stage; for example, if a thicker card is preferred for your invitation or a slightly different shade of gold is required for the wording, this is all possible to change.
5. Delivery of the Final Product
After the physical proofs have been approved, we then print all of your carefully designed items.
The turnaround time for this is approximately 12-16 working days from date of go ahead depending on the intricacy of the stationery job. All Save the Dates and Invitations are delivered assembled unless requested otherwise.
We would absolutely love to hear from you and start discussing your stationery! Quotations are completely free of charge with no obligation; we always love to talk weddings!
On the Day Stationery
8-12 weeks before your wedding/event date is the best time to start considering your On the Day stationery. Should you wish to continue the same stationery design throughout your day, we work together in a similar way to achieve the perfect design. The rough prices for this feature on our pricelist.
