Wedding Stationery has never been so easy!

The Wedding Boutique is a simple, step-by-step guide to help you find exactly what you need for your wedding day.  Whether you want to shop existing designs or desire something totally custom, we are here to help you every step of the way.

Where are you in the planning process?

The first step is figuring out where you are in the wedding planning process and what you need to order first.

If you know what you are looking for, you can hop right over to that specific area inside of the Wedding Boutique.  If you want to get in touch with our creative team, scroll down to link to our questionnaire, the perfect place to provide some of your details to get the conversation started.

The process is simple.  All you need to do is look through the design packages and resources below.  This will give you a good idea of what we offer, our capabilities, how we work and pricing options.  We also invite you to browse through the custom gallery to see past projects from happy clients.

Fill out and send your Design Boutique request using the submission form provided below.  Do your best to provide as much detail as you can as well as inspiration.  We want to be able to give you the most accurate price estimate and timeline for your project so the more information you provide the better we will do.

Once we have received your design boutique request, we’ll assign you to one of our friendly and professional designers.  After she has reviewed your request, she will get in touch with you with comments, questions, design ideas and pricing information.  This process usually takes about a week.

Your designer will then be there to walk you through the entire process.  You will work directly with your designer for all aspects of the project.  We love email but we are here to make this process as easy for your as we can.  

How Do I order?

If you are looking for a fully custom design or want to customize one of our studio designs, start by submitting a Design Boutique Request.  Your personal designer will provide you with pricing, timeline and all the information and details based on the information you have provided usually within one week.  To move forward from there, you will need to approve the initial project price estimate and submit your non-refundable retainer.  Once the details are settled, your designer will provide you with a project form for you to fill out with all your wedding details such as wording, times, dates, etc. 

Once your retainer and information are received, you will then be sent a pdf proof of your order.  With you proof in hand, you will then work directly with your designer to make as many changes as you need until you are 100% happy with your proof.

What is the Price Range?

Our Invitation suites range in price from $5 to $25 and above based on  a quantity of 100.  This includes invitations with envelopes, rsvp with envelope and one enclosure card.  If you need more or fewer pieces or a smaller quantity prices may vary.  Adding pockets, belly bands, envelope liners and/or envelope printing as well as upgrading to Letterpress of Foil printing will also impact the price.  That is what makes the range so wide.

Pricing depends on the printing method, amount of design customization as well as finishing options.  You may order all items a la carte so that you can pick and choose the exact pieces you need for your wedding invitation suite.

Your designer will provide you with a detailed estimate so you know how much each option adds to your suite.  We are a team of experienced stationery designers and we are here to help you pick the pieces and options that work with your budget regardless of how big or small. 

We are here to create stunning, personal invitations, no matter what!

Do you have a minimum Quantity?

For wedding invitations, our minimum quantity is 25 and quantities increase from there in increments of 5.

Is there a cancellation fee?

No, we do not have a specific cancellation fee.  Your initial retainer is non-refundable should you decide to cancel.  This retainer locks in your wedding date since we only take on a limited number of custom projects each year.  It also covers any upfront costs like initial designing, etc.

If a cancellation is made after initial proof pdfs have been sent, there may be additional fees billed to cover any custom paper or supply orders which often cannot be returned.

Is a Deposit Required?

Yes.  Once you have talked with your designer and agree both you and your designer have a plan you love, you must approve your initial price estimate and be prepared to pay your non-refundable retainer.  This covers any initial design time for proofs, or special order paper or materials.

Are you able to custom design matching pieces for the wedding day like escort / name cards, programs, or other items?

Absolutely!  We can design anything you need for your big day so your entire stationery package is cohesive.

What Kind of Paper Do You Use?

Our House Digital paper is white or cream 110lb cover.  It’s perfect for digital or flat printed card items.  It’s a great, sturdy stock that prints beautifully.

Light Kraft 100lb cover.  Great for printing with dark colors.  Adds a rustic touch to many designs.  Our light kraft paper is slightly lighter than the traditional brown paper bag kraft paper and has a smoother finish which makes it nicer for formal stationery.  It still has the beautiful speckles of color that you’ll love.

Savoy Cotton 118lb.  This is 100% cotton used for lettepress cards.  

Savoy Cotton 236lb cover.  This is 100% cotton that is so think we can only use it for letterpress.

We also carry a variety of metallic shimmer papers (105lb) as well as two envelope styles.  We have over 130 colors and styles to make your stationery completely your own.

Do You Ship Outside the US?

Yes.  We can ship internationally via USPS or UPS on request only.  Please contact us prior to placing any orders for cost estimates.  Raspberry Creative is not responsible for any customs, VAT or import fees once the package arrives in your country.  We do our best to provide accurate pricing and shipping times.

Design Package Options

It’s easy way for you to create a custom invitation suite as one-of-a-kind as you are.  Maybe you have a specific vision or have found a couple designs that are close, but you need a designer’s help to bring your vision to life.  That’s where the design boutique comes in.  

We’ve worked with so many couples that have assembled design inspiration from Pinterest, Instagram, and magazines.  We take all that inspiration as a visual representation of the look and feel of your wedding to create a personal and unique invitation suite that is all your own.  

Custom design is one of our favorite things to do; we consider it our specialty.  We take such pride and joy in working with a couple to create original designs with our own RC signature flair.  We cannot and will not recreate or copy something you have saved from somewhere else, but why would you want that when we can work one-on-one with you to create something that is special and amazing just for you?

RC Studio Designs

You’ve found just the right design in the shop or on our blog, it will just take a few minor tweaks to make it all your own.
