prices from: Copper Willow designers have the privilege of working with a wide variety of papers, printing processes, and finishing elements, all housed within our studio. With those variations in mind, we are typically able to tailor a design to fit budgetary needs. However, the average expense for wedding invitations in our studio is in the $1500-$2500 range with some weddings running higher and lower.
about us The beauty of working with our custom stationery studio is being able to deeply personalize your wedding stationery. We can safely say we have never created the same invitation twice and that's our goal! Once the individualized accents are created for the invitation, those elements can play out in the wedding day papers and thank you notes. A monogram on the invitation can be used on a menu or a stir stick, a thank you note or a napkin.
our approach / working with us Copper Willow designers boast a very diverse set of design styles. Our main goal is to truly express each couple's taste and personality in their paper, so being able to design anything that comes to mind is so important! The design process is very much collaborative. We help guide the selections, make recommendations and provide all of the resources, but our clients enjoy being closely involved in the design process. We really want our creative ideas to have the couple's voice so that when their guests receive the invite, it feels like the couple. To provide such a wide range of design offerings, we have collected extensive font and art libraries, have the ability to draw and paint any request, and can sketch out ideas in our meetings. We welcome the chance to really explore something classically elegant or edgy and unique. Anything we create is with the client in mind.
why we love weddings Besides wedding planners, the longest relationship a couple with have with a vendor is probably the Invitation designer. We work with some of our clients from save the dates to the thank you note after the wedding, which means knowing each other for sometimes a year or more! It's really a honor, to spend some much time with a couple during this monumental time in their relationship. It's so much fun to work on a project that really personalizes their wedding and of course, plays the important role of bringing all of their guests to the wedding itself. There's been so many clients that we truly miss after they've left the studio for the last time, and we really wish there was a reason for a stationer to come help at the wedding because we would love to see each couple on their wedding day! The whole process is so creative, so intimate, so satisfying.
our travel policy Visitors to our Los Alamitos studio in Orange County are always welcome! We do have a location closer to Los Angeles, in Inglewood, that we are able to reserve to meet with clients, on demand. That location requires a $100 fee that will be applied to any order placed as a result of that meeting. We typically use email, phone, and mailed samples to work with clients outside of the Southern California area.
