client Proposal review form
before sending approval, be sure to check for the following:
Amount Requested: We include a free keepsake suite for you, but it is recommended that you order 5-10 extra invitations for unexpected guests or parent keepsakes. Double check the amounts you have ordered. After your deposit has been purchased, it may be possible to increase your amount, but not decrease it.
Paper Type: Handmade Paper (deckle, rustic edges) versus Cotton Card Stock (straight, clean edges). Please note that handmade paper if more porous than cotton card stock and though lovely, does not flat print as crisply as cotton card stock. We have never had an issue with this feature, but if you are concerned about readability, we recommend you request a sample. Additionally, handmade paper color can varies as each piece is made individually, we believe this is what makes it beautiful but if you are particular about white versus off-white colors, we recommend requesting to switch to cotton card stock. We reserve the right to hand trim handmade paper edges as needed to assist in the flat printing process, to return the edges to their rustic state, we hand detail the altered edges. If you are concerned about this, we recommend switching to letterpress or metallic foiling.
Paper Size: Are all your pieces labeled with the correct paper sizes according to your what you believe you will be receiving? Please note that paper sizes can vary slightly by sheet, especially with handmade paper.

Printing Method: Does your proposal reflect the printing method you believe you will be receiving? (see printing methods below)
- Flat Printing - Standard Digital Printing, design is not raised, embossed, letterpressed, or metallic foiled
- Letterpress - Design is "pressed" into the paper, leaving an inked indent - this is difficult to illustration in design drafts, please check your proposal to verify if this is the method you selected
- Metallic Foil - Similar to letterpress, but with metallic "ink". This should be illustrated in your design drafts
PAPER Color: Does your proposal reflect the paper color(s) you believe you will be receiving? Colors shown in your digital design drafts may not be identical to the final paper colors. Each computer screen is calibrated to show colors differently and we do our best to match the colors discussed during the proposal process. If you are concerned about precise color matching, we recommend you request a paper sampler BEFORE you approve your proposal.
Ink Color: Does your proposal reflect the ink color(s) you believe you will be receiving? Colors shown in your digital design drafts may not be identical to the final printed colors. Each computer screens is calibrated to show colors differently and we do our best to match the colors discussed during the proposal process.
