Carla Corrado Designs is based in Werrington Village, Peterborough and has been creating unique and tailor-made stationery since 2015. Over the past year we have created an un-imaginable amount of quirky, traditional, unusual and personal Wedding Stationery suited to each individual couple.
So how does it work?
If you’re a local couple, we can set up a free consultation based around a day and time that suits you. We can either meet at your home, at a local cafe, or you are welcome to come to the Carla Corrado Designs HQ.
I will firstly want to have an informal chat, to get to know you as a couple and a little bit about the wedding to date; colours, venue, style / theme and so on. I’ll also need to appreciate how much ‘information’ you’re going to need, so for example, do you have menu choices? Would you like to give your guests directions? Do you need to offer accommodation options?
From there, once I have scribbled down enough notes, we can take a look at some styles you like. Whether you’ve pinned and saved them, or we have a look and blank template styles from my portfolio, we can narrow down what it is you’re looking for.
If you’re not local or we are not able to meet, it’s no problem! Simply send me some inspiration, let me know what you’re looking for and we can work in exactly the same way. Just via email or phone rather than meeting personally.
Once we have met, I will provide you with a quote for the style of invitation you have chosen against how many you will need. Once an initial quote has been approved we can begin to look at some digital proofs, which means you will be able to see the layout, font, and colour scheme via a PDF on your screen before we go any further. Amends and changes are welcome!
How long does it all take?
From approving a quote to approving the digital proofs can take as little as a week, sometimes as long as four weeks. It all varies on how fast we communicate between each other in order to get the designs correct. From ordering your wedding invitations, I’ll need another 4 – 6 weeks to complete the full order.
How does the pricing work?
Pricing is tricky due to the fact there are so many options! The studio collections will have pricing set within our portfolio page. Our Commissioned Design service is set at a slightly higher rate per invitation. If you have a set budget in mind, let me know and I’ll work with that in mind!
I’ll need a £25 deposit fee before you receive any digital proofs. If you’re happy with the end result, this £25 fee will come off your final bill. I then require 50% of the bill before I order in materials and the remaining 50% before I send your invitations out.
If you have any further questions, please get in touch!
Carla Corrado Designs have also partnered up with some top local suppliers which you will find a directory here. We only recommend the best.
