The Design Process

Creating a custom design with Spark is a fun and easy process!  Our stationery designs are fully customizable.  We allow you to change the ink, paper, fonts and wording at no additional charge as long as you are selecting from our standard options.  You may also make design changes such as changing the layout, adding new design elements or even mixing different Spark designs.  Keep in mind that your changes may warrant a design fee.   

The MOLLY invitation design above shows how the 1-color original design changed to a 2-color design with a different layout for the wording.  Changing the layout of the wording would follow a 1/2 hour to 1 hour design fee at $100 per hour.  The same fee would apply to a custom monogram or even the creation of wedding programs, for example, using the Molly design.

Every Spark design can be repurposed as needed.  For example, the Molly design can be used for save the dates, programs and thank you notes.  Don't worry if you don't see a certain item on our website, we simply can't show all that we have created online!

Once you select the design(s) you wish to use for your custom stationery order, the following steps take place.

The Design Process, Step by Step

Place Order.  Complete order form and email text to Spark.  Order details are discussed and priced and down payment is collected.

Design Proofs.  Depending on the level of customization you want, the first Spark proof will be issued within 2-5 business days.  Average timing is 2-3 business days.  Changes can certainly be made at this point as you work one-on-one with a Spark designer.

Review & Approval.  Please carefully review the proofs to ensure everything is spelled correctly and how you want it.  We require your written approval (by email or fax) before we move your order into production.

Production & Shipping.  Orders typically take 15-18 business days to print and finish prior to shipping.
