I thought I would give a little tutorial about the ABCD Designs Bespoke Stationery process:
I often have brides contacting me saying “I’d like to order the design that has the birds on it, will you give me a quote for 125 of them?” Unfortunately, at this point I do not offer that kind of service for wedding stationery.
I offer something more unique -!- YAY!
With ABCD Designs’ Bespoke Fittings, there are no cookie cutter designs, no catalogue where you just simply pick a design.
After a complete style consultation, a questionnaire is completed by you. It is submitted along with your color choices, wording (of which I will provide several options) and any tare sheets from magazines or jpegs of inspirational photos that you would like me to design from. We work together. I create each design from scratch to reflect your personality and style. These designs are fitted especially for you from your specifications only and will not be duplicated.
It’s your wedding. You should have a say! The more input you give to me, the better I can give your guests a sneak peek into your special event!
Most “custom” stationery designers will give you a choice from templates or patterns. You sometimes can choose your color and they will simply plug in the missing text: Date, Names, Place, etc. This “custom” process is similar to my off-the-peg collection. At this point I only offer supplemental stationery pieces and do not do ready-to-write wedding stationery wardrobes.
