CUSTOM ORDER PROCESS

START A CUSTOM PROJECT WITH US

GET STARTED!
First we want to get to know you! This meeting can be through my email, over the phone, or in person. We will go over our questionnaire and discuss your wants, style and budget. We encourage you to provide color swatches, Pinterest boards, and any other inspirations you have. Once we have a clear direction of your project, a quote will be emailed to you within 2 business days. Ready to get started…fill out this form , give us a ring at 704-251-7700, or send a note to hello@witandwhimsypaperie.com.
Once you approve the estimate, we ask for a $300 non-refundable deposit to begin designing. We accept PayPal and all major credit cards. You can pay through our online invoice or call in your card information.
Depending on the scope of your project, we can start with a mood board or go straight to the designing. Since each custom project is unique, the timeline may vary from 4 to 7 business days for your initial design. 2 to 3 initial design variations will be sent to you for review (for wedding orders the invitation will be designed first). This is when we want you to give us all your feedback and opinions (don’t worry we love collaboration)!
You will receive 3 complimentary rounds of edits for the initial invitation/main piece design, then (if applicable) another 2 rounds for the remaining group of items in your package. Additional edits are $30 per round. Keep in mind additional edits may delay the completion date of your project.
Once all edits/design have been completed, we ask you to review all your pieces for final approval! Things like typos, correct information, quantities, etc. are double checked by you. Once everything is good to go, we ask for the remaining balance before going to production.
This is the exciting part! We finally get to see your design come to life! From final payment to completion, production can take 7 to 15 business days (depending on your print method). Our Wit and Whimsy team will be hard at work printing, cutting, gluing, counting, and making any final finishing adjustments that are needed. We offer delivery for clients local to Charlotte and for our out of town clients we offer USPS Priority shipping.
