You've put a lot of work into deciding what your guests are going to eat, what the table looks like, and whether your brother in law should sit at the same table as his ex. (probably not) Most of our custom clients choose to add their signature design look to all their day of details, from their ceremony program, to menus, place cards and table numbers, to personalized thank you notes to make sure they cover all the bases.
Our Ready Made line of personalized paper products for events is the alternative to our custom designs. The designs are pre set, covering the range from our casual California Collection to our more formal Classic Collection, to our Modern Collection, which Colorblock, shown here, is part of. You get to choose and create, by picking your colors, printing, paper, and fonts, while still getting access to me for help along the way.
Yes, you can customize the designs to showcase your style: change the font and color and upgrade the printing to add foil and letterpress. But maybe even better is the price. Because the main design work is already done, these items start at a much lower price point than our custom designs. 50 flat printed menus start at just $300. But you don't get cheap paper. I use the same cotton stock that many of our custom clients choose. It works great with flat printing, giving a texture that is soft and lovely to the touch. But it's made for foil and letterpress, so if you feel like getting a little fancy, upgrade the printing with our gold foil, copper foil, rose gold foil, or silver foil.. or choose from a whole palette of my favorite colors I've been fine tuning over the years with our letterpress printers. (hint, I love grey, so all of them have a little understated touch to them)
Here's a peek at how it works online:
The same attention to detail is given to every order that comes into our office. It doesn't matter if you are a custom client that I met in person, or a ready made order where we never even spoke, I can't help make sure every client is as happy as possible with our products. So I go on press to ensure the color is right, answer any questions you might have, and make last minute changes or additions. You have access to me, your designer, in all your Ready Made paper purchases. (you can find me here)
I even developed this packaging, just for my Ready Made orders!
So, go over and play. Change the fonts, mess with color combinations. Don't worry about making it perfect, though. I will make layout suggestions if I think the text is too small or close to the edges. I'll even lay it out if you choose that option for no extra charge. You'll get a proof no matter what, so nothing goes to print until you tell us it's ready. I hope you have fun making these designs yours!
