design process

[column_half] anika loewen design - the design process

i know that when it comes to wedding stationery many couples have no idea where to start.
i love helping couples express themselves using paper, typography and colour.


feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to request a client consultation.

i provide my clients with a free 30 minute consultation to discover who you are as a couple, and what your design needs are. prior to the consultation i ask that my potential couple fill out the pre-consultation questionnaire found on my website. this gives me a bird’s eye view of style, colours, and time frame.


within four business days of our meeting, you will receive an estimate that breaks down the costs for: design time, printing, shipping and handeling (if required), and GST. once the estimate is approved, you will receive a contract to be returned with a 40% down payment before any design work is started.


within 10 business days of receiving the approved estimate, contract and deposit, you will receive a digital proof with up to 3 concepts for your design.
please provide me with feedback and any minor text/design changes. i will revise the artwork and provide you with an updated proof within 3 business days.
if necessary, a second updated proof for minor edits will be provided at no additional at cost. any major design revisions or additional proofs will incur additional design costs.


once you have received your final proof and signed off, verifying that all information (names, dates, times and spelling etc.) are correct, you have the option of requesting a sample print for an additional cost. once you have given your written approval of the proofs, the balance of the invoice is due before the order is sent to print.


depending on printing process, size and assembly time, most orders will take between 3-5 weeks to complete. need it sooner? rush printing and assembly options are available for an additional fee.
