The biggest compliment I receive as a small shop and designer is a return customer. That being said, many of Munga Vision's original clients who have returned over the years were originally seeking a custom wedding invitation design. Over time those newlyweds came back for first home decor, baby shower invitations, nursery wall art and more. Thus, this month I want to honor and grow those type of life long relationships by offering a RIDICULOUS custom invitation design offer.
For all of March you can use the code CUSTOMIDO to purchase a custom wedding invitation design at 50% off. That means you can get a completely unique wedding invitation design starting at $62.50. It's kind of a no brainer for anyone with a specific vision of their wedding stationery design. The custom wedding stationery sale is a great one because really I am sacrificing my time, but in doing so I will hopefully build new customer relationships, inventory and plus I just very much just love to design wedding invitations!
In this post I will break down the process of a custom wedding invitation design to first make sure it's right for you and second to walk you through what exactly the process will entail. This will hopefully make it less scary if you are in any way overwhelmed with the wedding process or aren't sure if you should go the custom route.
PART 1: IS A CUSTOM WEDDING INVITATION DESIGN RIGHT FOR US?
I truly believe a custom invitation design is almost always a perfect idea for any engaged couple. It's fun and an easy way to make your event more interesting and unique. There are two exclusions I have bulleted below, if you answer yes to either of these two bullet points then this promotion may not be a good fit.
- You already have an invitation design you love and want an IDENTICAL match. Maybe you didn't like the price tag of the original listing or are having trouble finding it in stock, but I will not copycat artists. The goal with the customized wedding invitation listing is to come up with a unique design. If you want to send a Pinterest board of likes and dislikes to give ideas that is a huge help, but a custom listing is not the right fit if you say "do exactly this" with an image. Purchasing from that artist and shop is best!
- The second issue is if you are already completely overwhelmed and stressed with wedding planning. In that case I always persuade couples to choose an already designed wedding invitation and then customize the colors and wording. Tweak a design to be more original. I am a big believer in wedding planning should be FUN. It is a once in a lifetime experience (hopefully!) and if you're not enjoying the process then simplify the un-fun part and move on to the next part you will hopefully enjoy. Customizing an existing template is free of additional charges too so just go ahead and order what you need. This route is the simplest way to get something unique for your big day, but a lot less stressful with less parts to it.
PART 2: HOW DOES IT WORK AND WHERE DO I BEGIN?
You're officially sold on the fun idea of doing custom wedding invitations with this great offer so now how does it work? The great part of working with Munga Vision, aside from the total care and attention you'll receive, is that you can still be a budget DIY bride and groom. The option to print on your own if you are trying to save a few bucks is available. The custom wedding invite design listing here is for the digital files to create and review. After you design your wedding invitation suite we can set up print services with a custom invoice based on your guest count. Prices are broken down on our wedding invites page, but as a bonus clients who create a custom suite through Munga Vision also get a 15% discount on print services. (Just to throw a quick number out there so you don't have to leave this article, 100 invites & RSVPs of a standard package would cost you only $225 printed with the discount. That includes white envelopes. So essentially you've received completely customized wedding invitations for under $300!)
Ready, Set, Order
First decide how many design pieces you will need. (Wedding invite, rsvp, enclosure, table sign template, name card template, program book design, kids card table, the sky's the limit.) Count each of those as one piece. When choosing the custom wedding invitation design listing just tally the number of designed cards you will need and then order the corresponding number. When you check out be sure to type in your code CUSTOMIDO at checkout and 50% of the price will be taken off!
Send Ideas and Info
After you purchase I will follow up with you or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org your initial ideas. Send color scheme, swatches if want to be exact, a link to your Pinterest board or any images you found and saved of ideas... incorporate any notes on what is brewing in your head to get me started. No need to have wording finalized at this stage, place holder text will suffice, but please do include the names of the bride and groom.
Allow up to 10 days for a first proof of the base invitation file to review. If you hate it, no worries! Be constructive with your criticism and I will rework anything you don't immediately fall in love with until we get your vision of wedding stationery perfect.
After the Initial Design
Once the base design is approved Munga Vision will begin working on the additional pieces to your wedding invitation suite if applicable. This is around the time where you will need to start working on the wording. If you need more time though, no worries! Munga Vision works on your time schedule. There is no rush to finalize when working with our small custom shop. We are always here for you.
All Approved, What Next
I'm on a budget and want to print myself.
Munga Vision gives you the freedom of achieving a custom wedding invite while still on a budget. If you want to print at home to save money or even send digitally you can do that. All high resolution files created will be sent to you upon request to do as please.
I want to use Munga Vision to print.
Great. We will chat to make sure you don't want any additional upgrades like double thick card stock, rounded corners, designer envelopes, envelope liners, etc. Once we get all the extra details squared away Munga Vision will review your order and send an invoice to you. All custom invitation packages receive 15% off their print orders too! Your order will be added to the print queue upon payment.
That's it. The beauty of the custom wedding invitation order to hopefully answer all your engagement questions and encourage you to take advantage of this month's special offer. I truly LOVE designing wedding invitations and would love to help you make your big day perfect and on the right budget!
