Custom Design

Order a custom design for any special event, occasion or announcement.

  1. Contact me with the quantity, printing method (letterpress, digital, foil), deadline, and design ideas you have for your order.
  2. I’ll contact you to discuss your ideas and overall vision. Please provide any additional materials to help illustrate your ideas.
  3. Before we begin, I charge a design fee (usually between $250-$450, based on your project). This covers a first round of drafts with three initial design concepts, then three rounds of edits to finalize your design.
  4. Once your design is finalized, you’ll receive a final quote. Total payment is due before production can begin.
  5. Custom design times vary.



Design times vary based on the complexity of the design and client communication. Printing times are as follows:

  • Letterpress printing: 2 to 4 weeks from final payment.
  • Digital Printing: 2 to 3 weeks from final payment.
  • Foil stamping 3-5 weeks from final payment
  • Edge painting: add an additional 2 weeks.
  • Custom calligraphy: add an additional 2 weeks
