The Custom experience


How much are custom wedding invitations?

Custom wedding stationery design has a minimum order of $900. The minimum can be met by adding a variety of stationery pieces including day of decor items and embellishments for your invitation suite.

What’s included with custom design?

You’ll receive an invitation suite with custom calligraphy details, high quality print methods on beautiful papers that are sourced from around the world. The attention to detail is in the finishes, and what elevates your custom design to a personal keepsake.

You’ll have access to your own client portal where your designs, approvals, and questionnaires will be saved for easy reference and organisation in your wedding planning. We’ll also include a helpful checklist for your wedding stationery and paper goods so that you can carry on with the rest of your plans knowing you are in good hands with us (our owner used to be a wedding planner!).
