HOW DOES THE MELODIE COLLECTION WORK?
The Melodie Collection allows couples to mix or match their letterpressed wedding invitation suites. The option is completely up to them. This allows couples to not only come up with their own unique collection, but also pick a collection that will fit within their budget. The collection prices are not fixed, which allows couples to be creative with not only the look of their wedding invitation suite but also the price. The Melodie Collection can work with all budgets! For example, you may opt to pick a two color letterpressed invitation and a one color letterpressed rsvp to help with cost, the freedom to choose is what the Melodie Collection is all about. All four of the themes work mixed together or completely matched. The choice is yours! There are three shown colorways, but custom colors are available as well.
DO YOU WORK WITH PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF NYC?
Yes, of course! We can speak on the phone, email, webchat, video chat, etc. If you can't meet in person, I prefer to touch base on the phone initially to get a feel for your ideas and overall general wedding theme. It is okay if you don't know what you want, I am here to help you visualize and set the tone for your wedding day!
HOW LONG DOES THE MELODIE INVITATION PROCESS TAKE?
4-6 weeks (rush jobs are available for an additional fee)
After Thoughtful Day receives your online order and a 50% non-refundable deposit, you will receive an email proof within 5-7 business days of your order receipt. All of your wording can be filled out on the online information page. If you are having difficulty wording your invitations, I would be happy to help you reach a desired solution. We can email or speak over the phone, whichever you feel most comfortable with. If you prefer to speak over the phone, please email me here so we can arrange a time to go over your invitations.
WHAT IS THE MELODIE ELECTRONIC PROOF PROCESS?
Once Thoughtful Day has received your deposit the design process will begin. We will then begin discussing your wording requests, and go over any further specific details you may want to include in your invitation suite. After Thoughtful Day receives all necessary information you will receive the first round electronic design proof to review. At this point you will review the items in your suite and identify any design details or wording you wish to change. Any revisions requested will be integrated into your wedding suite and you will be sent the final electronic proof. There are a total of two electronic design proofs. Any changes beyond these two proofs will be billed at $75 per hour.
I'M WORKING WITH A TIGHT BUDGET FOR MY WEDDING, IS THERE ANY WAY TO MINIMIZE THE COST ON THE MELODIE INVITATIONS?
Yes! Thoughtful Day offers any of the Melodie paper items to be Offset (flat) printed. Please email me here for an Offset printing cost sheet.
CAN I USE CUSTOM COLORS FOR MY MELODIE INVITATIONS?
Yes, custom inks are available for an additional $50 charge. Pantone Solid Uncoated colors are used for invitation printing. If you would rather send your own swatch (fabric, paint chip, etc.) or a computer print out of the colors you want. I will do my best to match it to the closest Pantone color.* Once you send the color swatches, I will send you a color printout for your approval.
*Allow an additional 1-2 weeks to custom colors for the approval process, this applies to welcome totes too.
HOW MANY INVITES SHOULD WE ORDER IF WE DO NOT HAVE OUR GUEST LIST FINALIZED?
It is always better to have and not need than to need and not have. I strongly recommend ordering 25 extra as it can be very costly to print additional invitations after your initial print run.
CAN I ORDER A SAMPLE?
Yes, you can order a Melodie sample here. Tote bag samples are limited.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
Thoughtful Day accepts PayPal, checks, and money orders. You must have a PayPal account to make payments through PayPal. It is really easy to set one up. Personal checks and money orders can be made payable to Thoughtful Day, Inc. Sales tax will be charged on all items shipped to NY State residents.
HOW MUCH DOES SHIPPING AND HANDLING COST?
Thoughtful Day uses UPS Ground Shipping for all items except for the Melodie samples which are sent USPS free. UPS 2nd Day shipping is also available for an additional charge. Please email me here if you would like UPS 2nd Day Air.
