CLIENT QUESTIONNAIRE

The questions below will help us to focus together on creating an invitation that will suit your style and your budget. It’s my goal to ensure that our collaboration results in a high quality design that not only meets your needs, but which also reflects the spirit of the event.

Potential items to be designed *
An invitation can be as simple as a printed card with a matching envelope, usually with a matching notecard and envelope, or there can be multiple enclosures or other matching items. Which of these items would you like me to design?
Envelope addressing *
Most envelopes have, at minimum, a preprinted return address. There are various options for addressing
It’s very helpful if you can provide pictures, samples of actual invitations that you’ve received or links to pictures of invitations that illustrate your preferences. Looking at other examples of invitations, what do you like, and what is it that you like about them? I suggest that you enter the type of event you’re having (e.g. “bat mitzvah invitations”) in Google images and take note of the styles that you like - you can send me links or print out the pages.
Are there styles that you particularly dislike? What causes that reaction?
What colors do you prefer? what colors would you like to avoid?
What sorts of fonts do you prefer? Simple? Formal? Trendy? Friendly?
Budget
Do you have a budget in mind for this project?
How many invitations will you be sending?
How many weeks in advance of your event would you like to send out the invitations?
