Custom Wedding Invitations

Julia Kay Calligraphy specializes in bold & colorful custom wedding invitation design. Custom invitations are perfect for those looking for an all-around cohesive wedding, personable experience & invitations you won't see anywhere else!

How It Works

The Investment

The minimum price for custom invitations is $600.00. The average Julia Kay Calligraphy couple spends $1,300.00 for an invitation card, details card, rsvp card, outer guest envelope, rsvp return envelope, and all envelope address printing.

Step 1: Booking

To start the process, complete the form below to receive a custom pricing proposal. Once you review the pricing proposal, in order to officially reserve your slot on my design calendar, I require a signed contract and a 50% retainer of the invoice. Once you are booked, I will reach out approximately 6-8 months before your wedding date to get started! 

Step 2: Gathering Details

When it is time to get the process started, I will reach out to you to collect your wedding details that I'll need for the invitations. You'll be required to fill out a questionnaire that will ask you several questions about you and your partner, your wedding day, and your inspiration

Step 3: Mood Board & Sketches

Based on your information and invitation inspiration, I will create a mood board and sketch of your invitation suite for your review. The mood board will include a color palette, design elements, inspiration photos, and your initial sketch.
You will leave all of your feedback on the mood board of things you like/love/hate. I will make necessary edits and begin designing the digital proof!

Step 4: Design Process

The design process is composed of several digital proofs of your invitation suite. The digital proofs are realistic and really give you an accurate look at what your invitations will look like once printed. You will have UNLIMITED proofs to ensure that your invitations look the exact way you want them to! Every proof gives you the opportunity to leave your feedback and request changes. We will go back and forth with this process until everything looks perfect to you!

Step 5: Printing & Production

Once you approve your design for printing, I will send them to my printing company. Printing takes approximately 3-5 days to be complete. During this time I will be printing your envelopes and assembling any add-ons that you ordered.

Step 6: Shipping & Assembly

I ship your invitations to you unassembled, meaning you will need to stuff the envelopes and apply postage. I will provide you with instructions and a sample suite to see how everything should look before sending out. If you would prefer I do this step for you, this can be added on in the initial proposal or anytime throughout the process.

"Julia was an absolute pleasure to work with! She exceeded our expectations with our custom wedding invitations. She brought my vision to life from the very beginning. She was very responsive and understanding throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend using Julia for custom invites!"

Jessica, Custom Invitation Client

"I can’t even begin to express how much I love our invitation suite and the process of working with Julia. She made the experience incredibly enjoyable and a breeze. Julia is so kind and offers wonderful customer service. When it comes to her work, I couldn’t be more impressed. Our suite is even more beautiful in person and the reaction from our guests has been awesome. They arrived quickly and beautifully packaged. Thank you, Julia!!!"

Angelina, Invitation Shop Client

Julia is a DREAM to work with!! She is very responsive, organized, and flexible! Julia was able to work with my budget to offer me the stationery items that I wanted without breaking the bank. She created my custom invitation suite, save-the-dates, monogram, seating chart, signature drink sign, and remembrance sign for my grandma who passed before my wedding. There isn’t anything Julia could not do!

Jenny, Custom Invitation Client

"You will not go wrong by hiring Julia to create your wedding invitations (or anything else offered on her site)! She is extremely accommodating, personable, and her work is absolutely beautiful! I have had friends reach out to me just to compliment my wedding invitations. Julia devoted so much time to making sure our invites were perfect. I never felt like a bother when I had a question and Julia's response time is impeccable! Julia truly cares about her clients and it shows in her work. :)"

Hannah, Invitation Shop Client

"I've gotten so many compliments on these invitations since we have sent them out, they are beautiful and exactly what we wanted! There is an option to customize every part of the invitations, even spacing and wording, to just how you want it. We even got matching COVID notifications for those who had to be cut due to downsizing the wedding. Julia was such a big help and was there every step of the way, answering every question we had. These invitation suites are so affordable compared to other big companies that I have seen and I felt more comfortable knowing Julia was there to help with any concerns as well. Highly recommend!"
