Truly Bespoke Finishing Touches
The finishing touches are super important when finalizing your invitation suite. This includes postage stamps, calligraphy and assembling.
Postage stamps are an obsession at Bespoke Designs, the final touch on an amazing outfit! USPS offers a wide selection of postage stamps for your invitation and the best part is that there is no postage mark-up on these! For save the dates, often one stamp will do the trick, but most of our wedding invitations require multiple stamps due to the weight.
US Vintage Postage
For us vintage stamps are like a love story in postage — really. Your home state, the state where you met, birds, surfing... choose your theme and start searching for the perfect mix of vintage stamps that add up to the postage you need. If scrounging for flea market finds is not your thing, no worries — we’re delighted to do it for you. Our vintage sourcing fee is $125 and we will give you several options to choose from. In addition to the cost of postage, a processing fee will be added to your order. Actual saliva is required for vintage postage stamps, or just a barely damp sponge.
Pricing for digital calligraphy is available through the option provided on your estimate. If you select digital calligraphy, you will see an example in your electronic proof.
Your Bespoke Designs project manager will price out hand calligraphy in your estimate. Prices can vary depending on the color of the paper, the color of the ink and the size of the envelope. If you select hand calligraphy, you will receive samples for your approval. In either case, there are many possibilities from whimsical to modern, understated to over the top. We will work with you to make your selection magical.
When we design your wedding suite, we think through every detail, all the way down to how it should be packaged to arrive in your guests' hands. You have the option of stuffing, stamping and mailing it all yourself, or, we are happy to do that for you as well. We’ll discuss this as part of your design agreement and it will be included and priced according to the agreed quantities for both the save the dates and wedding invitations.
