Pricing & Process
So you’re considering working with And Here We Are on your project, that’s awesome! Below is an outline of our pricing and process, in very general terms. Because our designs are custom and usually include at least some hand-work, our pricing needs to be handled on an individual basis. We generate our pricing based on your turnaround time, the amount of design work involved and your chosen printing process, and then work up a personalized timeline to suit your needs.

Custom Invitations or Paper Goods
A basic Invitation suite generally includes the wedding invitation, RSVP card with envelope, and outer envelope. You can also opt for add-ons such as RSVP postcard, address labels or calligraphy for outer envelopes, events guide for guests, custom maps, programs, menus, escort cards & place cards, table numbers, favor tags, rehearsal dinner invitations, and thank you notes.
Our custom invitations start at $1500 for flat printing, and at $2000 for letterpress printing (based on an order of 100 invitation sets). Save the dates start at $650 flat and $800 letterpressed (per 100).
We also offer wedding “WED” sites, which can range from the very simple, starting at $500, to the very complex, starting at $1600.
Again, due to the custom nature of branding projects, pricing is handled on an individual basis.
We offer packages that include logos, printed collateral (business cards, letterhead and envelopes) and websites/blogs.
For invitations, we recommend getting the design process started at least 3 to 4 months prior to your mailing date.
- We recommend that you mail your Save-the-Dates 5-10 months prior to your wedding date. 5-7 months is suggested for weddings with few out-of-town guests, and 7-10 months for lots of out-of-town guests or destination weddings.
- We recommend that you mail Wedding Invitations 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding date.
Business identities can take anywhere from 1-6 months (or more), depending on several factors.
Estimate & Contract
If you choose to work with And Here We Are, The first thing we’ll need you to do is download, fill out and return our Wedding questionnaire or Branding questionnaire to get the conversation started! We’ll then chat with you about you about your specific needs and email you an estimate along with our contract and proposed timeline. Once the contract has been reviewed and approved, please sign and return it along with a 50% deposit, payable online or by personal check.
At this time you should also provide a rough draft of the content you would like to include in the design of your project (i.e. wording of your invitation or announcement, RSVP text, business card information, etc.).
Once we have received your signed contract and deposit, the design process will begin!
We will present two to three design options via email for your review with colors, materials and printing process outlined. You will then have the opportunity to provide feedback and identify any changes you want to make or new ideas you may wish to incorporate. You may send your comments via email or we can discuss them over the phone.
The changes are integrated into a revised version that is submitted to you for approval.
Once you have approved a version, it will be processed into a “final digital proof” for sign off.
Before we can begin production and assembly of your invitations, you will be sent the “final proof” by email. At this time you’ll need to review and confirm that every detail is perfect: the layout, colors, spelling, grammar and punctuation. We ask that you confirm via email for our records. Once the digital proof is approved for production, And Here We Are is not responsible for any future changes or mistakes.
