Allison Arditty Weddings
Customers rated this pro highly for professionalism, responsiveness, and value.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
There are a few pricing tiers: For a standard, totally custom invitation suite that includes save the dates, invitations/detail card, RSVP slip, and thank yous, the design fee is $400. The price will fluctuate if you do not need or want one of the listed items. If you'd like to add day-of print materials (programs, table cards, menus, place cards), an additional cost of $175 will apply. Again, this price will fluctuate if you do not need all of the listed items. Please note that the design fees above do not include printing costs. I work with a trusted printer in the Seattle area, and always strive to keep printing costs low without sacrificing quality.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We will meet, in person or over the phone, and discuss the following: • Types of pieces needed and quantity of each • Wording for all pieces • Contact info for billing, email address, and shipping address for where order should be sent • Ideal deadline you would like to have your order in-hands (don't forget to give yourself enough time for assembly and addressing) • Link to a pinterest board or examples of the style you are envisioning • Any other special requests or notes From there, I will create a "mood board" of invitation styles for you to select from. Once a style has been chosen I will begin designing, starting with the save the dates and invitations. Two revision rounds are included in the design process. For most projects, I will need at least 6 weeks from the start of the project to the estimated ship date, that will give us enough time for design, revisions, proofing, and production. If you'd like day-of-print materials, the timeline will extend by a few weeks.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I attended Iowa State University for Graphic Design, receiving a BFA. I have over seven years of professional design experience, and specialize in print design.
