You deserve something you'll cherish forever - Leah E. Moss Designs

 


I’ve had so many clients start their search for wedding invitations elsewhere, only to have a disappointing experience. Everything they saw was just someone else’s template, instead of something special for them. How annoying.

But I set out to be an expert who can time-and-again create paper goods for each of my clients as unique as their individual love story. You didn’t settle on your forever person—so why showcase your classic love story with something generic?

Make sure your wedding invitations are just like your love – something you’d pick a thousand times over! Your story’s beautiful and meaningful. Let’s tell it like it is.

The Experience

I offer two types of wedding invitations: The Collection and custom design. For either type of service you choose, here’s what you can expect working with me.

  • Designs anchored in calligraphy done by hand first, so you can be confident your wedding invitations are truly one-of-a-kind. I don’t use cursive fonts – if there’s something written in script, it was done for you, and just for you. I then take the hand-done version and scan it, incorporate it into your layout, and get it ready for printing.
  • High quality paper and print methods, so you can send invitations your guests will go crazy for—and that your Aunt Barbara (Emily Post 2.0) will approve of and appreciate. 
  • Quick design turnaround time, so you can get your invitations from “ordered” to “print-ready” quickly. No waiting around on back and forth between you and yet another vendor. I like things done – and I know you do, too!
  • Interactive proofing process, so you can review your proofs and provide feedback easily, from wherever you are—ahem, even your office. Your secret’s safe with me.
  • All the printed elements—not just the invitation—under one roof, so you can be sure your invitations, save the dates, menus, ceremony programs, cocktail napkins, decorative signs (and so on, and so on) all coordinate together. 
  • Access to a stationery expert, because paper isn’t your zone of genius (duh). That’s cool – I’m your girl! I’m here to answer all your questions and offer guidance on wording, paper types, print methods, and etiquette, all without having to call some faceless 800 number. I’m a one-woman show and I’m a real person, in your corner.

What’s the difference between The Collection and custom?

Each service has its own advantages, to reflect your needs for your day. Let’s see what works better for you!

The Collection

  • Shop online. Customize your wedding invitations and purchase your perfect combination, straight from the couch. Cross it off your list – you go girl.
  • Price point to suit your needs. Budgets are there for a reason, and I believe they should be respected. With different print methods and customizations available, you can build something that has the look you’re going for – without breaking the bank.
  • Shortened turnaround time. The design process starts immediately after you’ve placed your order. You’ll have your first proof within a week!
  • Lots of customizations and embellishments. Just because you’re ordering online doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice any bells and whistles you want. Luxury print methods, upgrades to paper, envelope addressing, wax seals – let’s get you whatever goodies you have your heart set on.
  • Convenience. You’re busy enough as is – get a high-quality product without the hassle. Self-serve by learning about your options from the handy Collection Guide and pick what works for your day. No annoying back and forth to get pricing or a big investment of your precious time.

Custom Design

  • Complimentary consultation and one-on-one service. We’ll connect personally before building your custom proposal, based on the items you need and your overall goals.
  • Detailed timeline. You’ll know when to expect everything from me, working backward from your wedding date. I used to be an executive assistant – staying on schedule for you is really important to me.
  • Artwork in every package. Let’s include a painting of your dog! Or a custom crest with your venue! The options are endless – and all from scratch. The design process starts with an individual look book, so you’ll get the full vision with color palette, mood board, and layout sketches.
  • Full range of materials. You want a wood-backed invitation? Sure. Leather tags? Great. Acrylic menus for every guest? Been there, done that. Handmade paper, boxed delivery, pressed flowers? All the fixins. Yes – bring.it.on.
  • Curation assistance for every element. Vintage postage coordinated with your aesthetic, telling your story, sourced, ordered, and affixed for you. Escort “cards” written on rocks to pair with your garden chic aesthetic under your sail top tent. Hand-engraved signage for your signature cocktails on marble. It all works as part of your vision – get all of the luxury items you’re craving with one vendor.


So, how can I help create your perfect wedding invitations?

don't just give a gift, give an heirloom - Leah E. Moss Designs

 


 

Artwork that reflects the beauty of who you are – and what really matters to you – is something your loved one will treasure. Bonus – the first wedding anniversary traditional gift is paper. A piece of art created for you on paper, commemorating that day, is a meaningful and heartfelt gift for your spouse.
