THE INVESTMENT

When you order wedding invitations from Banter & Charm, you're getting more than paper and ink. You're receiving one-on-one service from a professional with years of experience (me!) From the initial inquiry to the moment you receive your invitations, I will personally attend to your order and offer guidance every step of the way.

I am infatuated with pretty stationery (I hope you are too!), and that is reflected in the materials I offer: classic cotton paper and envelopes- soft and thick, with a subtle texture that begs to be touched; handmade Italian papers in blush pink and soft gray; locally manufactured card stock in the perfect shade of sky blue. Looking for more of a "wow" factor? How about double thick paper with edge painting for a pop of color. Envelopes are available in a rainbow of colors, along with liners to match. Wrap everything up with a belly band or silk ribbon topped with a wax seal. Every piece in your order is professionally printed with meticulous attention to quality. Finish it all off with envelope calligraphy and a custom postage stamp, and you have a stunning invitation suite your guests will be talking about for years.

PRICING

My couples are typically paper lovers like myself, which means they allocate a larger portion of their budget to wedding stationery (about 6% of their total budget). I provide options in a variety of price ranges, however if you are looking for an exceptional invitation suite with all the luxury finishing options, packages start at $2000.

If you have an idea of what you'd like, simply request a quote and I'll put together your custom pricing proposal. Need help deciding which options are right for you? Send me a message with your questions or to set up time for a phone consultation to chat about all the options.

For a set of 100, pricing starts at $485 for flat printing, $570 for screen printing, $825 for letterpress, or $1040 for foil stamping. This includes the invitation, rsvp, and blank envelopes with the standard customization options (changing the wording, colors, and fonts). For exact pricing for your project, please fill out the wedding inquiry form and I'll prepare a custom quote just for you.

HOW IT WORKS

Everything is available a la carte, so you can have all the options you desire (and none of the ones you don't need).

Pricing for each piece is dependent on the print method and quantity ordered. The higher the quantity, the lower the cost is per piece.

The printing method you choose will have a big impact on your total cost. Flat printing is the most affordable printing option. Screen printing is a great midrange option that works best with metallic or white ink on colored paper. Letterpress and foil stamping are more costly, since each piece is hand fed through a printing press one at a time. Screen print, letterpress, and foil orders are priced per ink or foil color (a separate screen or printing plate and additional run through the press is required for each color). To maximize your budget, I suggest saving the costlier printing for your invitation and opting for fewer ink colors or flat printing for your response card and inserts.

I would love to talk with you about the options available. Please contact me to set up time for a complimentary phone consultation.

Shipping is an additional cost, and is determined based on the size and destination of your order.
6% sales tax will be added to all orders shipped within Michigan.
