When did you start making wedding invitations?
My interest in invitations began when I was planning my own wedding. I wanted something both beautiful and whimsical. Unable to find anything I liked, I opted to make my own. I found the process so fulfilling, I decided to open Pip's Paperie.
I have made artworks with paper for years, and have transferred that skill to my invitations. These are not just printouts or digital templates; my invitations are multilayered and textural. They are completely handmade, with each element designed, drawn, cut, and glued by me.
I hope to bring high quality, joyous, and artistic designs to other quirky people like me.
What is your turnaround time?
These invitations are completely handcrafted, with a focus on detail and workmanship. For this reason, once an order is placed, and proofs are approved, an order of approximately 100 invitations will take 4-6 weeks to ship. Larger orders (150 invitations or more) may take longer.
If you need invitations in a rush, please contact me! I will do my best to accommodate you.
Both an order form and a $150.00 deposit are necessary to start work on an order.
When an order is placed, I will send you a form requesting the details of your event. Within 5-7 days of receiving both this form and the deposit, a digital proof will be sent to your e-mail. Please look over this proof CAREFULLY to make sure that all information and spelling is correct. You will receive up to two rounds of proofs; beyond this, proofs must be paid for ($5.00 per extra proof).
Please note that the digital proof will include TEXT ONLY as all other elements of my designs are tactile.
Once the proof is approved, I will send you an invoice that includes a link to a page reflecting the balance of your order, with all additions, modifications, etc. The balance must be paid in order for work to begin on your physical invitations.
What is the ordering process like?
How do deposits
A deposit is necessary for me to start work on your order. The price of the deposit will be deducted from the overall order total.
In the case of cancellations, deposits will not be refunded if digital proofs have already been e-mailed. If work has commenced on the physical invitations, the full amount must be paid.
Yes! I would love to work with you on something custom.
Custom orders start at $15.00 per invitation set and increase depending on the price of supplies and the complexity of design.
For more information, you can click the "custom orders" tab at the top of the page
Do you take custom orders?
Of course! Wording on the invitation can be anything you'd like.
Can wording be customized?
Each invitation has been meticulously designed. Each element, from paper pattern to font, has been chosen with care. For this reason, invitations themselves cannot be altered.
Response cards and envelopes, however, are available in different colors. If you would like to change the color of your response cards, envelopes, or both, please send me a message with your name, order number, and desired alterations.
Envelope liners can also be changed. Any of the pictured patterns are available. If you would like to change your envelope liner, follow the same process as above.
Can I change the color/pattern of invitations/ response cards/ envelopes/ envelope liners?
Feel free to contact me with any questions you have!
I will get back to you as soon as I can!
