custom invitations

Welcome to one of the first steps in your wedding planning process!! Wedding invitations give your guests a glimpse of how special your love story is and how wonderful the celebration of it will be. They are a perfect way to set the stage for your wedding and marriage. XO Art & Design can create a fully custom stationery suite unique to you and your relationship. Let's get this wedding started!




Everything goes to print! You get to relax, pour yourself a glass of wine, and know that I will take care of making sure the suite comes out perfectly.

I stuff, stamp, and seal the invites (if you selected that option)! Then I either ship them to you or hand them off to you if you are local to Chicagoland. You will be able to mail your beautiful invitations - a once in a lifetime moment. Congratulations!!!!!

I gather any more information/inspiration I can squeeze out of you and use that to begin desiging a fully custom, unique-to-you suite.

I go to work on the design - usually right into my design program. Sometimes, some preliminary sketches are involved as well.

With up to 5 rounds of revisions, together we will make sure it is everything you've always dreamed of (and more)!

The process begins when you fill out the questionnaire below.

I will send you a proposal and timeline estimate. Then we can jump on a phone call to discuss the proposal and your vision.

If you want to work with me, I require a signed contract and 50% retainer fee to lock you into my design calendar.
