How early should I book?

Time is of the essence when it comes to stationery. Our design process is immersive and requires ample time for collaboration and revisions. We typically book up to 7 months in advance, and crafting a kit alone takes over 3 months. So, the sooner you reach out, the better.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much are invitations?

We are a high end, fully custom, small design studio based in NYC. Everything we create is highly personalized for each couple, and we treat each project like we’re doing the “branding” for your wedding. Starting in 2024, we have revamped to target a more luxury audience, since our process is extensive and we only take a few clients a year.
Our average packages (including calligraphy, vintage stamps, Save the Dates, Custom Invitations, a welcome gift, and a matching Wedding Website), would be around $10-12k for 100 count.

What printing methods do you offer?

We can do it all! Our base package includes digital printing, but you can add letterpress or foil for an additional fee.

Do you offer day-of paper goods and signage?

Absolutely! We love when our clients want their invitations to match the paper on the day.

What is the payment process like?

We require a deposit of one third of your Invitation and Saves package total to secure your spot on our calendar, with the balance due before the final printing stage. We accept various forms of payment for your convenience.

What is the design process like?

The process kicks off with an intimate Zoom consultation where I get to know you and your unique love story. From there, I create a detailed design plan complete with a mockup, mood board, and a specific list of design elements we'll focus on. Once we align on this plan, I move on to crafting the actual designs. You'll have three rounds of edits included in your package to ensure everything is perfect—though, to be honest, we usually nail it the first time. Major changes outside these rounds are considered a redesign and will incur an additional fee.

Do you offer international shipping?

Yes, we do offer international shipping.

How do we get started?

If you are the couple, please fill out this inquiry form. If you are a wedding planner, please use this one. 

If we have room for you in our calendar and align with you budget and timeline-wise, Isabel will get on a call with you to get to know you. From there, she will create a proposal with specific pricing and design ideas, and if you love it, you can be an official GPC client!
