Wedding Invitations

In everything that you do for your wedding, you want to make a splash, we understand that. And the best way to make an impression is to make one from the very beginning. That means that you want your invitations to be attention grabbers. The best way to do that is to find and hire a professional invitation designer. There are many graphic designers out there who do amazing work, but there are also some that do subpar work. With that in mind, you need to seek out a true professional in the Boise area who will give you exactly what you need. You need someone who will be patient with you as you learn all of the jargon that goes along with this profession. Here is a guide that will go a long way in helping you to determine the graphic designer who will create the wedding invitations of your dreams.

So, we realize that this is probably not a search that you have ever had to conduct before. And you are probably wondering the best way in which to begin. May we offer up a few suggestions. First of all, try talking to your family, friends and coworkers about whether they have ever hired a graphic designer to design an invitation. Also, talk to your wedding vendors that you already have a relationship with and hopefully there are some quality candidates that they know about that they will forward to you. And last but certainly not least, make use of the world wide web. Do a Google search for “invitation designers in the Boise area.” This search should give you a number of websites to check out. Look at the online portfolio of each site and determine if you like the work of the designer. If you do, add them to your list. By now you should have a number of designers to check out further.

Setup interviews with every designer on your list. The first thing you need to bring up is how long they have been in business. There is definitely something to say for experience. It takes time to learn the business of design and your invitation needs deserves to be serviced by someone you can trust. Ask each candidate about their design background. If they do not have a graphic design degree, that should not preclude them from being a possible hire. Talent is talent no matter what a person has behind their name. Tell them how much you have budgeted for your invitations. After they know how many invitations you will need, find out what the bottom line cost will be. Do they outsource their printing? If they do, there is a good chance this will save you some money. Do they offer both custom designs and template designs? Custom designs almost always cost more but it will be your preference whether you want a one of kind or whether you mind ordering a template design that someone else might have used as well. If you use them for all of your printing needs, will you receive a discount? We recommend this because you will have a consistent look for everything. As each candidate about how the process will proceed from design phase to order to print. When you have finished with all of your interviews, you should have a good idea of which designer you like the best for your wedding needs.
