Own your Time

The looming questions of ‘how long will this take’ and ‘when should I start the process’ are always the topic of conversations with our business and wedding clients. We are 100% honest and straightforward with our schedule, since our studio offers custom Graphic + Wedding Design. In our initial consultations, we encourage you to discuss everything that is needed for a certain project or event. A timeline is prepared for all of our clients once we get a scope of work for the project or event. So, let’s dive into the time and process we own at BPCG.

Weddings

Custom-designed wedding suites and stationery take time. It is tedious and we want to ensure a very cohesive process. And with that, we prepare a timeline of all details needed and when they are due. Here is an example of how long a custom-designed suite takes to produce:

  • 3 – 4 = Number of hours we spend in communication, including consultations, reviewing your proofs, and phone/email correspondence about edits and pricing
  • 2 – 3 = Number of hours we conceptualize, format, and prepare your proofs
  • 1 – 2 = Number of hours we spend preparing your files for print, communicating the details with printers, and ordering your final materials 
  • 2 – 4 = Number of hours we spend assembling your invitation suites, quality control checks, and stuffing/stamping your invitations and taking them to the post office to mail to your guests 
  • 2 – 4 = Number of hours we spend designing day-of items, printing, assembling, and placing (if the couple selects that service)

It is wild to think that we could easily spend 9-17 hours on ONE couple. We truly enjoy having those personalized consultations to capture your style in your paper items.

Business

Business graphic design and branding is the air we breathe. We encourage businesses to update their marketing collateral and freshen their designs. From development to completion, the process may take longer than anticipated. We provide a detailed timeline to ensure an open door policy on the progress of each item. Here is an example of how long a custom-designed logo takes to produce:

  • 3 – 4 = Number of hours we spend in communication, including consultations, reviewing your proofs, and phone/email correspondence about edits and pricing
  • 8 – 9 = Number of hours we conceptualize and design proofs
  • 1 – 2 = Number of hours we spend preparing your files for release, along with your Brand Bible

New business branding is exciting to jump in and see a business take off, representing the energy and strength in their logo. A logo can be developed in 12-15 hours. Of course, hours can easily vary, depending on your vision.

So, when do we recommend starting the process? As soon as you have the confidence to walk in and be asked any question and have an answer. Check this off the list, let us take care of the design, branding, printing and delivery. It’s nice to have a team to lean on for a process that has worked seamless for ten years!!  Cheers!
