Design Process

It's important to me that you're stress-free so I've created a super simple stationery process that will get you the custom wedding invitations you've been dreaming of. My expert knowledge of Iowa wedding stationery will take you through the process without a hitch!

Step One

Details & Design Agreement

First, we chat about You & your wedding! 

  • Vision, Style, Colors, & Theme

  • Stationery Needs 

  • Timeline, Guest Estimate, Date

Second, we put together a design agreement that covers all the details we chatted about to ensure we are both on the same page. It will save you stress and give you piece of mind! (With the signing of the design agreement a deposit is due.)  

“I gave her my colors over an email and the look I was going for. She created an amazing design more than I ever could of hoped for... She responded almost immediately every time. And worked with me on any changes I wanted. She made my invitation process so easy." - Charllotte

Step Two

Wording & Design

Emily will share invitation wording samples and guides along with expert one-on-one support to help you select the perfect wording for your invitation. I'll help you personalize to your situation while following all the appropriate etiquette whether your event is a formal or informal one.

Once I receive the finalized wording from you I'll promptly start working on your invitation proof. I'll take the design style you've shared with me in step one and bring it to life. Refer to your personal stationery timeline to know when to expect your proofs (hint, they usually arrive very quickly!)   

Step Three

Proofs & Approval

When your proofs are ready for viewing you'll receive an email notification. You'll find your proofs on your very own page on EmDesign's website. 

After reviewing your proofs, you can submit edits but once it's looking perfect you'll complete an approval form which will allow me to get your stationery items ordered from the printer!  

“We were so happy how everything turned out from our bridal shower invites, wedding programs to our wedding invitations. I love how flexible and easy she was to work with. I also love how I got to view the proofs before she printed the finished copies out! I would recommend her to everyone!!!" - Karla

Step Four

Shipping or Pick-Up

Orders generally only take up to 7 days at the printer and once I have received them I'll either get them shipped or schedule a time for you to pick them up!
