Couture Wedding Invitations and Stationery
As well as our bespoke stationery collections Artemis Stationery also creates couture stationery. Our couture stationery are designs which have been developed from our clients ideas and instructions and produced to our clients precise requirements. This is essentially like creating a new collection from scratch, normally invitations and day stationery. Though often Save the Dates and Thank You cards as well.
Shown above is an example of an Order of Service using a sketch of Ely Cathedral as it's cover. Below is a Mad Men inspired silhouette design created for Elizabeth and Daniel.
This could easily be covered by the couture designs but it's worth pointing out that I can do illustrations which could be of you or anything connected with your wedding. Below is an example of an illustration done for a blog article. You may also want to look at Coast one of my illustrated designs for other ideas.
If you like one or more of the collections you see on the website but are after a type of stationery that is not listed or seen here that doesn’t mean it cannot be made. The price list is more of a guide to what can be made and the approximate cost rather than a definitive list. Contact Artemis Stationery with a full description of what you are looking for and I will get back to you with costs or request more specific details. It’s always good to have a challenge and make new types of stationery. Most of our stationery is produced in house but we do use other producers when something is outside of our skill set.
There are separate design and production costs for couture orders. The design costs are based on the complexity of the proposed design and cover the designing of your invitation or stationery. Production costs cover the production of the invitations or stationery. A delivery charge will be applied.
Costs normally range from £75 to £600 depending on complexity of the design. Although very simple concepts may have little or no design charge. Eg using an image supplied by the client or simple all text layouts. Where copyrighted images have to be bought their will be a cost for purchasing them. While £600 would be for a very intensive original design like Coast
For couture orders a non-refundable deposit of £30 is required to begin design work. A design proposal will be created with sketches as well as costings for the design and production, these will be dependent on the quantity and complexity of the designs. At this point you may choose to discontinue if the proposal is not to your liking. If you wish to proceed the design costs will need to be paid in full.
When the design has been completed to your satisfaction a proof will be made for you. If you are happy with this, payment is required before production of your stationery will commence. The time to produce the stationery will vary dependent on quantity and other workload. Completed orders are then dispatched by an agreed delivery method.
