To begin the process you will be emailed a link to a short questionnaire which will help us learn more about you, your style and what exactly you are looking for for your stationary needs. If you are local we would be happy to meet with you in person, so you can review our portfolio and we can fill out the questionnaire together. During this initial meeting your personal Flair Necessities designer will work with you one-on-one to discuss your vision of the invitation, discover your style and personality, accumulate information, including verbiage, your budget and requested quantity. During this time, we will review any other inspirational materials brought forth by you, present samples of our work and go over designs that might fit best with your theme.
After the initial consultation and brainstorming session, Flair Necessities will provide you with a price quote. This quote is an estimate of what your invitation package will cost. This precedes the design phase so an exact package price will be provided with the presentation of your invitation concepts. If extensive changes are made or if the invitations parameters/quantities change post the initial designs you will be notified of the additional cost.
If you choose Flair Necessities to be your personal invitation designer, we require a $150 deposit and a signed concept contract to begin the design phase. This deposit is put toward your final order total. Upon receipt of the deposit we will put together 2 invitation mockups based on the themes/ideas we discussed in our initial meeting, phone conversation, or emails.
Two to three weeks later you will be shown two physical mock-ups of the invitation or save the date design. The mockups will include the invitation, response card and envelope. You will then have the opportunity to provide feedback and identify any changes you want to make or new ideas you may wish to incorporate into the final draft. You can make up to three rounds of revisions without incurring additional costs. After the design direction is chosen the remaining pieces (reception card, envelope, map) will be designed and emailed to you.
Once a design has been finalized and approved the invitation will go to print. At this point the second deposit, 50% of the remaining balance, will be made. You will also receive an order contract detailing all items you are ordering, their quantities, and the final total for all items. The order contract is also your confirmation that you have reviewed all invitation pieces for spelling, grammar, punctuation and layout. Flair Necessities does not assume any responsibility for grammatical or spelling errors once the items have been signed off on.
The order is considered final at this point. Changes in design, quantity, or printing options will incur additional costs. The printing and assembly usually takes 5-7 weeks but can be expedited for a nominal fee. The final deposit is due at delivery.
If you are out of state, your invitations will be packaged very carefully will be insured with the dollar amount of your invitations. **You will be notified of the shipping charges and your tracking number once your package is sent.
