At Gretchen Berry Design Co we believe that each story is unique and that your invitations should reflect that. Our work is specialiezed and personally meaningful to you. We collaborate closely with you to create a beautiful and carefully crafted invitation suite that is one-of-a-kind.

How much do invitations cost?

Every invitation suite we create is one-of-a-kind therefore all invitations are priced differently depending on the printing process, the paper chosen, the items needs, the quantity and the scope of the design. After meeting with you, we put together a detailed quote based on your needs and your design wishes. If there is a budget you would like to work within please let us know and we would be happy to design a suite that works for you.

Types of printing we offer:

flat printing  //  foil stamping  //  letterpress  //  engraving  //  thermography  //  laser cutting  //  screen printing

Types of paper we offer

A variety of paper stock varying in color, weight and texture can be choses depending on the projects. We can also print on other materials such as wood, plastic, metal, acrylic, fabric and more.

Timing

Because every invitation is designed from scratch we prefer to start the design process 6-8 months before your event. Rush jobs are available and rush fees will apply to any design needed within 6 weeks of mail date or 3 months before event.
