Who am I? I'm the girl who always loved being creative in school; Who revelled in poster and magazine projects, computer design, shoebox dioramas, and drawing. I'm the one in my family that everyone comes to for creative design, (I started with creating fundraiser tickets with Micorsoft Word circa 2005!). In 2012, after loving the process of having my own custom wedding invitations made, took my life long passion for crafting, beautiful paper, typography, and design and turned it into Belle Impressions!
I am a "one woman show" (with a little help from my wonderful supportive husband!), handling each aspect of the project from the initial email or phone call, through assembly and delivery! I am tenacious by nature, with an eye for detail and strive to make each piece as perfect as a hand made item can be.

CONSULTATION (1 hr)
At your consultation we cover everything from how many invitations you’ll need to what types of pieces will go into building your package. We’ll discuss any inspirations and look at card stock swatches. I’ll bring along samples of my previous designs for you to touch and feel. If you find what you’re looking for among my samples, or on my social media, we can discuss how you’d like that design to be customized to suit your wedding and any additional matching pieces you may desire. If you have something different in mind, I can design something brand new! During the consultation we’ll also discuss printing and pricing options.
The next step is creating your layouts. Once you have received your invoice, your 50% deposit is due. Layouts will be created and then sent to you in jpeg format via email. Changes and revisions will be made based on your feedback. If I am creating a new design for you, you will receive 1-3 initial design concepts for review. From there you may have up to three revisions of your chosen design. Once you are satisfied and no more changes need to be made, a final digital proof will be emailed for your approval. Carefully review and sign off on all elements of the design, as any errors are your responsibility to find and report.
PRINTING & ASSEMBLY
Printing begins only after the receipt of your signed final proof and payment of your remaining balance. Once the prints and materials have arrived, assembly takes place.
Personalized invitation orders have a turnaround time of 3-6 weeks. For custom designs please expect a minimum of 8 weeks for completion. Luxury printing methods or unique materials (wood, acrylic, imported specialty papers) add additional time as well. Good communication is key. Long delays in responding to emails or approving designs will add time. Belle Impressions can not guarantee your in hand date if communication is not prompt.
