Buying handcrafted can become expensive. While it’s tempting to get a deal rather than pay a higher price, it’s important to remember spending less typically means you’re getting less; less integrity of the product, less trust that the product will turn out how you’d hoped, not personalised or customised adequately and a lesser quality of materials. Those who create handmade, understand the value of making that product the highest of quality.
You’re not only purchasing a unique, fully customised, handmade product just for you from the best quality materials you are also purchasing the stress free, personalised service & assistance required to create your dream product.
Buying mass produced products may seem cheap & easy but cold and impersonal, the beauty of handmade is that you’re speaking directly to the person creating your product. Simply Stunning Stationery provides assistance with wording, etiquette, colours & design and you are welcome to make as many changes as you like to your design prior to approval for printing at no extra cost.
No product made in a factory, on a machine, moved down a conveyor belt & packaged with mechanical arms receives the same attention to detail and consideration that a handmade product does. Handmade is not a buzzword, it is a genuine and authentic representation of the product you’re investing in – made by hand !
And don’t underestimate your guests. Quite often comment is made ‘why spend that much on an invitation guests will simply throw in the bin’? I know that there’s a lot of guests out there who will appreciate the unique, handmade symbolization of the announcement of your special day that they had the opportunity to share with you and shall keep the invitation in a safe place for a long time to come. And ultimately too, it’s not all about the guests, it’s about you and what you want for your day !
If you can’t afford the invitation you love, please don’t be afraid to let me know. There quite often are simple ways and means of reducing the price of the invitation, perhaps reducing the size, flat design rather than folded, removing fiddly features such as tags, eliminating the need for insert cards or using alternative materials currently in stock.
Hope this helps on your way to creating your dream invitation. Get in touch, would love to help 💌
