Step 1: Take a peek

Take a look at our semi-custom and custom paper goods and decide which direction is best for you. Then, consider what paper, add-ons and printing style your heart is set on. Don't worry if you're not sure right away, we can help guide you through the process!


Step 2: Reach out

Fill out this form and someone from the DPC team will reach out to discuss your options further. After an initial conversation, we will send over a custom proposal. If you like what you see, an official agreement can be drawn up so we can get started right away!


Step 3: Sign agreement & submit deposit

Once an agreement has been reviewed and signed, we ask for a non-refundable deposit. This is typically a percentage of the agreed amount and covers the initial proof.


Step 4: Writing copy

We will send over a draft to confirm proper word placement and phrasing as well as spelling and grammar verification. We will also send over a spreadsheet for your guest list. If dpc will be handling your addressing, names, honorifics, addresses, etc, these should appear exactly as they are to be addressed on the envelopes. Remember you do not need an invitation for every person, just every couple/household—this can save you $$$!


Step 5: Design time

If you select a semi-custom design, a proof will be sent via email within 1 week. The semi-custom designs include 1 initial proof and 1 round of revisions. These revisions should be for small text or design changes only.

For custom designs, we will create a timeline, and proofs will be sent according to those deadlines. Custom designs include an initial proof and 3 rounds of design. Each additional round of revisions will be billed at an hourly rate, as outlined in your proposal.


Step 6: Approval & final payment

At this point we hope you love what we have created together and will await an official approval before printing begins. Your final payment will be due before files are printed. Orders cannot be canceled at this point.  


Step 7: Printing & assembly

You don't need to worry about the printing, we handle everything! We also offer full-service assembly which includes stuffing, addressing, embellishments, and postage. If you would like us to stuff your invitations, this will incur an additional cost which will be outlined on your proposal.

Typically printing and assembly can take 3-4 weeks depending on the complexity of the design.


Step 8: Shipping or pick-up

Once your items are ready to ship, we will provide pricing based on your desire for ground or expedited shipping service. And of course, local pick-up is always welcome!
