How to Order
1) Visit this form and fill out the Invitation and Announcement questionnaire.
2) After we receive your form, we will reach out with any follow-up questions prior to sketching your design, and establish an estimated timeline for completion. You will then receive a sketch of the design for approval before painting begins. Up to two rounds of edits to your sketch will be included with our base price. Additional edits to your sketch after two rounds will cost $25.
3) Once your custom sketch is approved, you'll receive an emailed invoice that can be paid online, and your birth announcements will be officially underway! Any alterations to the painted portion of your announcements (that involve re-painting) start at $75 per edit. Andrea will work with you to ensure the layout and design are exactly what you envisioned, and you will receive a final proof prior to printing.

Upgrades to paper: Most common upgrade is 240 lb paper (+$0.50). We can also accommodate changes to size, texture, etc., as well as changes to envelope color.
