Where are you located?
Lovely in Ink is currently a one woman show local to the greater Raleigh area in North Carolina. I meet personally with all of my local brides/clients to get to know you over a yummy latte! If you live within thirty minutes I would love to meet you. If not, then I would be just as happy to get to know you via e-mail or over a phone call.
What kind of products does Lovely in Ink offer?
Wedding, baby, or graduation announcements, save the dates, invitations, response cards, programs, reception cards, information cards, the list goes on and on. If you have a clear idea in mind I will do my best to make it happen!
How does your pricing work?
Printing and design are two separate costs.
I work exclusively with a printing company in Knightdale, NC. The quality of the finished printed product and the competitive prices that they offer are incredible. However, printing costs vary greatly as no two projects are the same . Such variables include: paper type, quantity, size, folded or flat, single sided or double sided, number of colors, etc. The greater the number of prints the better the price per print.
The cost of design is a flat $20/hour of actual design time with a minimum design fee of $75.00. This is for the most special day of your life, and I will make as many revisions as needed to make you absolutely happy! However, keep in mind that revisions take time and multiple revisions will increase the price of the design fee.
What is the turn around time?
Generally, the entire design and printing process takes about 2-3 weeks. However, every project is different. The more complicated the design the more time it will take to make. If you have a clear idea of what you are looking for I can usually get a proof to you within 48 hours. Turn around time is also affected by how quickly we communicate. I always do my best to answer e-mails within 24 hours. The faster you respond the faster the process will go.
How do I receive my finished product?
For all of my local brides/clients, I usually hand deliver the finished product. However, if you are not local or would prefer to have your products shipped the cost of shipping will be added to the cost of printing and design on your invoice. Tracking will be provided.
What form of payment is accepted?
For brides/clients that I meet personally, I can accept cash and all credit cards using the square card reader. For brides/clients that are not local I can accept all credit card payments through Paypal or the square card reader. Sorry! No personal checks accepted.
