COMMISSION A BESPOKE DESIGN
Bespoke designs take a considerable amount of time to develop and as such we only accept a limited number of commissions each year. Our selection process takes into account how original your concept is, whether it will fit in with the Dottie style and if we have enough time!

Average bespoke design costs
An average cost is about £600 for an original one off design which can then be printed onto items such as wedding invitations, save the dates, order of service, menus, table numbers, place setting cards, table seating plans, signs, and other stationery and paper goods. We ask for a 50% deposit at the beginning of the design process, with the balance due when your order is dispatched.

Bespoke design turnaround times
In terms of turnaround time please allow between two to three months which includes any printing of wedding invitations ('on the day' stationery requires additional time). Please be advised that these timescales can vary depending on the complexity of the design and printing process.

The bespoke design process includes:
  • An initial consultation in which we will discuss your ideas and brainstorm and concepts.
  • Initial design proofs: We will submit initial digital proofs for your feedback
  • Design Revisions: Following your feedback we will revise your design until we have your final approval.
  • Production: Printing and assembly.

Who holds the bespoke design licence?
All bespoke design licenses are held exclusively by the client prior and up to a period of 6 months after their wedding or event. Following that, Dottie Creations reserves the right to publish or licence the artwork.
