THE DESIGN PROCESS


 Congratulations to you on your upcoming wedding celebration! Now that you've had a chance to browse the AJCreative website, it's time to connect with Amy to start the process of creating your perfect custom wedding invitations. 

CONSULTATION (4-5 months before wedding) Let's get together! One consultation is complimentary to discuss requested designs, event details, view samples and paper swatches. Amy can meet you in her home office, a local coffee shop or discuss your needs over the phone or email. In order to prepare for your consultation, please check out the 'forms & info' tab. Following the consultation, Amy will work to create a customized estimate based on the designs as discussed in the consultation. Your estimate will be emailed directly to you for review.

CONTRACT & DEPOSIT After the estimate is approved and signed, Amy will provide you with a design contract. The contract and 50% non-refundable deposit (which gets applied to your final payment) is required before any design work is completed.

DESIGN & PROOF Once the design contract and deposit are received, Amy will create a proof of the design(s) and send via email.

DESIGN APPROVAL (3.5-4 months before wedding) When initial design is approved, Amy will email the final proof in which the client will confirm the style, layout, spelling, punctuation, etc. Client must review this carefully as AJCreative is not responsible for errors once the final proof is approved.

PRINT & PRODUCTION After final proof approval is received, AJCreative will send the order to print and production. Each order's print time may vary based on the design and quantity. A final invoice will be emailed to the client and remaining payment is due upon project completion. Once the project is completed, it will be available for pick up or carefully packaged and shipped. 

ADDITIONAL INFO AJCreative accepts cash or check. Checks are to be addressed to AJCreative or Amy Jungmann. Final invoice may vary due to design time, materials and shipping. Assembly is not included unless otherwise stated in quote. 6% Iowa sales tax applies to orders placed in Iowa. Client is responsible for any additional mailing costs associated with mailing completed design due to additional weight.

AJCreative retains ownership of all original artwork, whether preliminary or final unless release is given in writing.
