Wedding invitations, save the dates, thank you cards, printed, custom, digital…where do you start! What do you need for your big day and what can you do without? The world of wedding invitations can be a tricky one to navagate but luckily for you there are some pretty amazing local businesses right here in Calgary that can take this off your plate for you!
Pink Umbrella Designs is a boutique wedding invitation and graphic design company based in the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Cochrane Alberta.
They love getting creative with your wedding vision so that you don’t have to! Each couple and each business is unique. They love working with you to create something that uniquely fits your style, so that your guests and clients can see your personality the moment they receive your invitation or marketing piece.
Pink Umbrella Designs is headed by graphic designer Shanna Cremers, who chased the dream of Mountain living in 2003 moving here from London, Ontario where she got her Diploma in Web and Graphic Design in 2002. So now you’re asking yourself…cool but what’s this going to cost me?
Here is what owner Shanna had to say about their pricing!
“Every order is different, making every answer different. Printing starts at $2.75/ea for a single wedding invite with envelope, and goes up depending on your needs. Factors such as quantity, paper choices, amount of inserts, layers, embellishments, custom design vs template design all play a role. Your best bet is to fire us off an email or give us a call and we can get you a more accurate quote.
Our customers spend about an average of $400 – $700 per 70 custom designed invitations.
Your Invitations should cost approximately 2-4% of your total budget. Example, if you have a $30,000 budget, your invitations should cost between $600 – $1200. This percentage is for your invitations only, and does not include other paper goods such as Menu’s, Place Cards, Table Numbers, Seating Charts etc. The percentage for total paper goods should be approx. 7-10%”
