Process

Congratulations! You are having a super fun and memorable event and now have to invite the people you love the most! Dear Love, Invitations would be honored to work with you from the preliminary brainstorming stages to placing the final stamp on your custom stationery order.

Located in the Philadelphia neighborhood of Fishtown, Janelle, owner and creator of Dear Love would be thrilled to meet to review all of the details of your big day. If you live outside the tri-state area, we could set up a Face-time call or correspond by email.

During your consultation, we will be discussing color palette, your overall reception style, any special flowers you will be including in your bouquet and any other fun party details. We highly encourage you to show us lots of inspiration so we can get the best idea of what will make you the happiest person in the world!  Pinterest boards are highly recommended!

Please keep in mind that all of Janelle’s work is hand painted or drawn so each design element is unique to your custom invitation suite only.

After our consultation, we will email you a design quote in 3-5 business days along with a contract to be signed. Once all work is agreed upon, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required by Check or through VENMO (Janelle-Pickard) and we will get started!

Design

 

The design portion takes about 3-4 weeks and we will be in touch every step of the way! Once the layout and artwork is ready to go, we will send you a proof by email so you can see what your suite will look like. Once approved, we will request wording be sent over, which will then be inputted into your design and a hard proof of your invitation suite will be mailed to you. We always want our clients to be able to physically hold their invitation suite before final printing. We believe it makes their event become real and they can truly see our vision take place!

Once you approve your final design, your balance will be due, and printing will begin! Please expect another 2-3 weeks for printing & assembly prior to your invitations being completed. You will have the opportunity to pick them up from our home studio in Fishtown, or they can be mailed to your home.
