Below is a list of our most commonly asked questions. Don’t see your question here? Contact us and we’ll be happy to answer it!
I come through town often, is it OK if I just stop in sometime to look at Invitations?
While we would never want to turn anyone away, if you are interested in working with us, we do require an appointment. Our studio is tiny and is where we meet with clients, work on production and so much more so for everyone’s comfort, we ask that you schedule a time with us before just stopping in. Feel free to contact us with any questions regarding wedding consultations.
I see your hours are limited to work days but I work. Do you take appointments on the weekends or evenings?
YES, when our schedule allows. If you require an evening or weekend, please call or email the shop to work out a time that suits everyone. We do limit weekend appointments to Saturday AM only beginning at 9AM. No Sunday appointments.
How Much Does it Cost?
This is the first and most common question we get when talking with couples at wedding shows or at first-time meetings. Because we specialize in custom stationery this is not a simple question to answer. We don’t order out of a catalog, we build each project specifically for our clients even when they are selecting an existing design. So many variables play into the final price for any project but on average, for 100 complete wedding invitations our pricing starts around $400.
The word “Custom” sounds expensive. I like the idea but I know I can’t afford it.
Yes, custom can be expensive but our process of putting together a package specific to each and every client enables them to pick and choose the things they want to spend their money on and where they want to save. So you want a custom design but you have a limited budget. That’s fine. Maybe you are a DIYer and wouldn’t mind printing them yourself. Lots of people are doing that now. We also can show you a varitey of papers and even envelopes that come in a variety of price ranges. If you can’t afford the “top shelf” envelope you can also go with a base envelope and add a custom liner to dress it up or include printing on your envelopes to give it a more custom look. The options are ENDLESS so custom is never out of reach if you really want it. We just have to work a little harder.
What are your shop hours?
2017 is going to be a year of change so to make room for those changes we have modified our shop hours. We are no longer open for walk-in. All appointments must be scheduled in advance. Our regular business hours for 2017 are Monday through Thursday 9AM till 4:30PM and Friday 9AM till 2PM. Evening and Saturday AM appointments are available when possible.
Raspberry Creative does wedding invitations but what other wedding related items do you do?
Raspberry Creative designs everything from wedding invitations, save the dates, thank you cards, signs, banners, favors and favor tags, escort cards, place cards, menus, ceremony programs, and so much more. We can make most of it here too! It may not be listed but be sure to ask. We are always willing to try something new or make suggestions.
Is there a deposit?
Yes and we call it a retainer because it is non-refundable. Because in most cases, supplies have to be special ordered and often not returnable, this non-refundable retainer covers those up-front costs as well as initial design time for proofs.
How do I order?
Many of our designs are available for purchase in our shop but if you have questions, want to make minor or more detailed changes to a design or if you are looking for something custom, it is best to either email us directly, schedule a consultation or submit an information request form. This puts you in touch with one of our design professionals so that we can answer your questions and help you begin the process to creating your perfect stationery.
