Clove and Cedar FAQ’s
Commonly asked questions and important information about my processes and services.
Why do I need a stationery designer when I can order online?
As a designer, I am here to make sure every piece is created to perfection. There are many details that go beyond just plugging in your content and checking out. I am here to look out for my couples from beginning to end, make suggestions, customizations, and options to create a personalized experience.
Can I work with you if I am not local to Arizona?
Yes! I work with couples all over the nation, and our communication is by phone and email throughout the entire process.
What Is a Semi-Custom Invitation?
A semi-custom invitation package means I have designed creative template-based collections that can be customized and are unique to Clove and Cedar so you receive a personalized experience and design tailored to you.
The designs are paired with things like specialty ribbon, wax seals, deckled paper, vellum wraps, and more creating a custom and specialty “semi-custom” wedding invitation collection. I wanted to create designs that are elegant and luxurious by focusing on the design and the elements used giving me the flexibility to create beautiful paper products for my clients and customers.
A Semi-Custom Collection: Visit our Etsy shop to see our featured invitation designs and collections. If you would like to see a catalog of all of our designs and build a wedding invitation collection please contact me directly at Jess@cloveandcedardesign.com
What kind of paper do you use?
I love using paper with texture! I use a bright white linen card stock, meaning it has a subtle elegant texture and provides a more dimensional feel. For my specialty items, I use things like deckled edge cotton rag paper and thicker vellum stock for the vellum wraps.
What is common in an Invitation Suite?
A common collection for an invitation suite consists of the following:
- 5” by 7” Invitation
- 5” by 5” RSVP Card
- 25” by 5.5” Detail Card (this piece can be provided in many sizes)
- Envelopes and Envelope Printing for Invitation and RSVP envelopes
- Envelope Liners
There are many pieces and/or options that can be added to the list above, but this is a common starting point.
How much should I expect to pay for Invitations and Stationery services?
Prices vary based on the products and the needs of each project, but here is an average range of price points.
