FAQ


Do you only design wedding invitations?

We can design anything you may need for your wedding day. While the majority of what we design are wedding invitation suites, we love designing menus, programs, even large centerpieces and seating charts for our clients. Have a creative idea? Just ask. We also create design work for other worthy celebrations such as galas, birthdays, bar mitzvahs, anniversary parties and more.

I want to work with Whimsíque, how do I get started?

That’s great news! We want to work with you, too. You can schedule your initial consultation appointment by clicking HERE. For more questions on our process, click HERE.

What print methods do you use?

We are experienced in a variety of print methods, and are dedicated to helping you find the method that works best for your design, timeline and budget. We work with letterpress printing, foil stamping, engraving, embossing, laser cutting, etching, digital printing, 4-color process printing and more. Want to learn more? HERE is a link to our blog that helps explain these different processes.

How much does it cost for custom design work?

We create your custom invitation suites and design work just for you, and therefore pricing varies based on design and production detail. Our custom suites start at $2,000, and our average client spends around $5,000.

What is your process?

We start with a complimentary consultation either in person at our boutique studio or on the phone if you are out of town. During this meeting we will discuss wedding details ( the look at feel), chat about timelines and look at samples and swatches so we can start building your vision into your perfect invitation suite.  We will then send you an itemized estimate to review. Once that is approved we will send along our contract and documents with info we will need from you to start creating your digital proof to review.

Do you offer envelope addressing?

Yes! We offer both digital addressing (printed with a font) and hand-calligraphy for an additional fee. This service includes complimentary assembly and stuffing.

Can you mail my invitations for me?

Of course we can! This service is offered for an additional fee and includes:

  • Sealing main envelope for the addressed invites
  • Determining the mailing size and weight of your parcel
  • Postage & stamp sourcing
  • Mailing (please note: we only mail boxed invites/packages within the U.S.A at this time)

* Whimsíque is not responsible for invitations or stationery that is lost in the mail or destroyed through the mailing process

Do you work with clients outside of San Diego?

We work with clients all over the world, and would love to work with you.

Can I add my own personal art or design?

Your wedding is all about making your own statement. If you have your own design or piece of art in mind, we’d love to add that personal touch to your designs for you.

Am I able to expedite my order?

We know timing is of the essence, and we are happy to help you coordinate your specific rush design & production needs. Rush production typically means cutting the production time in half, and is available for a 20% fee. Rush shipping options are also available for varying rates.

Once you finish the invitation can I use that art for my day of stationery or other items?

We are happy to work with you to create your day of stationery or other gifting items for your event. If you would like to use the art apart from working with Whimsíque there is a $500 fee for the use of files and art.
