You will find that my basic pricing is more in line with traditional invitations.* 
(Most companies offering original design charge $4-$10 per invitation.)

Pricing for invitation ensembles is as follows, due when you send back the proof you like:
(Wisconsin residents add sales tax):

Consultation fee: first variation free, then $20 for 3-4 original designs
You're welcome to ask to see any one of the invitations in the Inspiration Gallery edited to feature your color scheme (a free service), or schedule a consultation where we'll get a better idea of what direction to take your invitations to fit the character of your special day. $20 pays for this initial consultation, followed by a free demonstration (about a week later) of 3-4 test designs (with price quotes) based on your wishes. At that point if you like what you see, you can commit to a design, or any of the designs can be edited or combined until you're satisfied; your $20 consultation fee will be applied as a credit toward your order. Because of the amount of work put into the free demonstration and subsequent free sessions, the $20 initial consultation is non-refundable, even if you choose not to pursue a design by your personal artist.

*I have researched the cost involved in adding texture (thermography, embossing, pearlescence, foil stamping) and unique shapes (such as seal-and-send) to my creations.  Here is where being a small business puts me at a disadvantage, but I can still offer these possibilities for an increased price. The cost varies based on how many pieces you order and how intricate the detail of the designs you're considering.  For example, for a classic triple-border design embossed around the edges of 325 invitations, the cost per invitation is $2.50.  Work with me and I can get you a more exact quote. 

Pricing for calligraphy - due when you want me to send the completed envelopes:

$1.60 each for outer envelopes (add $1 for return addresses)
85 cents each for inner envelopes
Add $10 to total if colored or metallic ink is desired
Add 50 cents per envelope if it's too thick to see through when held up to the light
Please allow 1 week's preparation time for each 50 invitations you want me to address.  For example, if you are mailing out 200 invitations, I need the envelopes 3 months before the wedding so that you can have them sent out the standard 6-8 weeks in advance.
