Kraft and Gold Wedding Invitation Suite

Sharing a full custom paper suite designed for Madison and Ryan.  I love May 5th weddings because that’s when I got married.  So I guess you could say this one was meant to be right?  The bride knew for sure she wanted elements of gold dots and kraft paper, this was the end result.  This set comes complete with invitation, sealing cards, luncheon cards.  Day of items were designed to match such as I spy cards, ceremony program, guest book and welcome sign.  Because I design everything from scratch with custom orders there really is not limit to what can be done.  Contact me for your custom order today!

A Complete Wedding Paper Suite for Fall

I love the endless possibilities with wedding paper and design.  I’m so happy that Matt and Chelsie chose me to design their wedding invitations – which also led to menus and programs.  I haven’t done many square tri-folds in the past simply because not many people ask for them (it does cost a little extra for postage to mail square envelopes.)  I adore how this set turned out.  I just needed a little inspiration from the client, colors, overall look and feel and then I added a little bit of my own touch.  So many fun personal details were included, like the fall leaves, perfect for an October wedding.  They also requested that I somehow include an image of the wedding venue, they really liked the old vintage door at the winery.  I wasn’t sure how I was going to make their request a reality, I don’t have photos on hand of venues from states hundreds of miles away from me.  But I spent some time looking and looking for not only a nice image but one that had a high enough resolution that would print well, that was not easy.  But as I searched through the photos on the facebook page of winery I was able to find a few that worked perfectly, I was so happy I found those, I wanted to make sure their vision of the perfect invite came to life.  Then it was time for me to draw out the map.  I drew every detail in illustrator and then highlighted the main points of interest, such as the church, the venue and the accommodation locations.    I also designed a matching rehearsal dinner card to go with the set.  I love the end result.

When you order custom with me, I know you may be thinking it might not be worth it, but rest assured, I put in the time and effort to make sure you get exactly what you want, down to every last detail.  Simply share your ideas, and leave it up to me to put it all down on paper 🙂

Congratulations Matt and Chelsie, I wish you all the best!!!

Romantic Photo Invitations

Purple has definitely been a big favorite this summer for weddings.  This couple wanted their photo invitations to have that classic formal look with the text but wanted to include some design elements that gave it a more modern look and feel.  Navy and purple with cream and white lace.  Beautiful engagement photos compliment all the fine details.  Congratulations Liz and Brandon, I hope your wedding day was perfect!CA270

When Should I Order My Wedding Invitations?

I thought I would ask the question, when should you order invitations.  Ordering invitations is not the same timeline as mailing your invitations.  Mailing invitations:  you should send them at least 4-6 weeks prior to the wedding.  You want to give guests plenty of time to plan on being there.  If you need an RSVP, be sure to mail invitations at least 8 weeks prior to the event because you likely need those responses back 4 weeks before the wedding.  Which brings me back to when you should order.  I wanted to address the question because I’ve been getting a lot of rush orders lately.  Thankfully I do offer the option, however it simply costs more money, which isn’t something that most brides should have to worry about, weddings are expensive enough as it is, so having to pay rush fees isn’t ideal.  Most of our invitations print, ship and arrive in about a week but there are a few things that can extend the process, such as custom design.  So it’s probably best to plan for at least 2-3 weeks of turn around time just to be safe.  So if your wedding is in a month, you probably should have ordered invitations several weeks ago.  Just plan ahead.  As soon as you plan that wedding date, order invitations, it’s probably the first thing to do.  However this means you likely have to book a venue, schedule a church, make sure your photographer is available etc.  It’s a lot to figure out, so you better get on it as soon as possible.  I feel so bad for brides that wait too long and send wedding guests invitations with 2-3 weeks prior and then they have no idea how many guests to plan for, how much food to have etc.  Planning ahead equals happy day and happy bride & groom.

A few things to know when ordering with Jeneze Designs.  The fastest standard option you can order is our bronze design package.  This means you want to order something you’ve seen in our gallery.  The design time for these orders does not take long, normally 1-2 days and then orders can be placed for print fairly quick as well.  If you order from our silver or gold design package, these designs may take an extra day or two simply because we need to put a lot more creative time and effort into your order.  Once the design process is finished we can order the prints, but plan on this taking a just a few more days.   Orders that include pocket cards, custom printed details such as envelope liners and belly bands, as well as rounded corners or spot gloss can all take a few extra days as well.  Timeline simply depends on what you order but we always provide that information upon ordering so you can determine if a rush is needed or not.

Every once in a while small mistakes are made, this does not happen often, maybe just 3-4 times a year, but sometimes it does.  These things can be anything from ink smudges from print jobs,  small edits that were missed in the text or maybe UPS simply damaged the package during delivery.  It’s so awful when these things happen because sometimes a re-do is needed and sometimes there simply is not enough time to get the re-prints or the extra envelopes etc.  At Jeneze Designs we work super hard to make sure problems don’t occur, like I said, doesn’t happen often but be prepared for the possibility.

RUSH options.  We do offer rush options because we know that it’s simply just needed.  Sometimes customers are waiting to hear back from that venue, the photographer or family member and it makes planning ahead a little difficult.  But not worry, we can rush your order, depending on what is needed, some rush options can arrive in just 2 days.  Of course additional fees apply, but we can for sure make it happen if needed.  Just be sure to ask, we are always happy to answer any questions and are willing to accommodate any need with tight timelines.

We hope this information was helpful.  All information provided only applies to Jeneze Designs invitations.  Turn around times for other invitation companies may vary, be sure to check those timelines so you can be sure to get what you want within your budget.  Have questions?  We are happy to help, simply email me at jenny@jeneze.com.

Goodbye May – Hello June Weddings!

You know it’s wedding season when there is a serious lack of blog posts going on.  But tons of designs I want to share this month of all my wonderful customers, it has been a busy busy season so far this year, so fun to see all the new trends etc.  I’m loving it!

I’ve also been working some new products, so I thought I would share one of those today.  This is our new “Spot Gloss” coating.  This is so fun because if you want a little shine and shimmer but don’t want a high gloss invitation, you can order spot gloss to go on anything you want.  For example I used a spot gloss on the names in this save the date.  It kind of give the gold an extra “pop”, almost giving that foil look some shine and shimmer even though it’s not real foil.  And the great thing about it, it doesn’t cost anywhere near what real foil costs.  As low as $.06 cents per piece.  Aside from adding it to text we could put it on any design elements you want, so many fun possibilities.  I’ll be sharing some more later this week.  We will be adding the spot gloss option to our order form very soon.  Samples are going out in our sample packs now, so if you want to see what it looks like in hand, order a set today!
