WHAT IS THE PRICE RANGE FOR EAST SIX INVITATIONS?
We offer both Ready to Order and Custom Designed invitations. Ready to Order pricing starts at $1850 for letterpress and $2200 for engraving. Custom Design pricing starts at $3050 for letterpress, $3300 for foil stamping, $3400 for engraving. An average EAST SIX invitation set which includes one of these additional embellishments starts at $2800 (qty. 100) depending on printing process. If you would like to provide us with your budget, we would be more than happy to figure out the best possible package and printing process for you. On average for a Ready to Order package, our couples spend between $3000 and $6000, often adding options such as bellybands, folders, sleeves, envelope lining, edging, and/or additional ink colors.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FROM DESIGN TO DELIVERY?
Once we have received your signed contract, text and non-refundable deposit, we can begin the most exciting part- the design phase. READY TO ORDER clients receive their first proof within a week and can be delivered within 4-8 weeks of proof approval. CUSTOM DESIGNS typically take between 2 and 5 months from start to when you receive your printed invitations. These are just typical timelines. We can work with you on a more aggressive schedule if you wish. Just let us know the date you want your invitations in hand and we can work backwards from there. Rush orders can also be processed if the need arrives.
HOW MANY INVITATIONS SHOULD I ORDER?
Usually, each couple and family will receive one invitation each. Individuals, and guests who are invited with a date receive one each as well. So think about your guest list in terms of couples, families and individuals and there is your number. Then add 10-15. These extras will be crucial as you may get some returned in the mail due to a move or a wrong address and last minute guests always pop up! It is always better to have a few extra in the end than too few. It is very expensive to order reprints at a later date - almost as much as printing the first time!
DO YOU OFFER ENVELOPE ADDRESSING?
Definitely! East Six offers digital calligraphy (matched to the exact fonts on your invitation) and hand calligraphy. Digital calligraphy takes 2 weeks and hand calligraphy can vary but usually takes about 2-3 weeks. If you are considering either of these processes please let us know at the onset so that we can work them into your schedule. We will require that you provide us with your final address list in a Microsoft Word document with absolutely no formatting whatsoever. Any additional addresses provided after the final list is given to us will result in a $25 set up fee. So please be sure that what you give us is the final final final!
