Paperzest designs award-winning custom stationery, branding and event materials. We've been fortunate to work with a whole spectrum of customers over the years. Our clients include those celebrating a wedding or other milestone, non-profit fundraisers, and high profile corporate events. We believe that it’s the details that take any event from ordinary to extraordinary.

 ...getting to know you...

Our process starts with a consultation where we learn more about your event and goals. We’ll review samples, colors, styles, paper swatches, and patterns. We’ll warn you – we ask a lot of questions in this stage! This initial consultation helps us start to form some design ideas. We can do this in person if you’re in the DC area, or over the phone (don’t fret – we have clients literally all over the world!).

...initial concepts...

Within roughly two weeks, you will receive the first sketches of your design along with a rough estimate based on what we’ve discussed so far. We do require a 50% deposit with your signed approval to proceed. A preliminary timeline outlining key milestones is also provided.

...the final details...

Once we have your deposit, we will start to finesse the final design. This may include sending you hard copy samples, PDF proofs, etc. until it’s perfect! We send you PDF proofs of everything before we go to print to ensure that everything is accurate and that we’re still on the same page (no pun intended!). Once approved, we go to print!

...the quiet period...

The hard part is over! Now everything is on its way to the printing press. The assembly process begins. You will receive a final invoice and the balance will be due prior to shipping. If you choose for us to mail your invitations, our team will take them to the post office and we will request they be hand cancelled on your behalf.

now for the best part ... getting responses!

If you need items for the day of your event, we will start to work on those as your start to receive your RSVPs.
