If you're a couple looking for refined wedding invitations & ephemera with a boutique one-stop-shop service - You're in the right place.
All custom collaborations require a minimum investment of $2800 regardless of the number of pieces needed.
The average Carta Plena couples invest between $5000 - $8000 in their complete custom stationery, ranging from save-the-date to invitation suites with rsvp, detail cards, to day-of accessories.
We offer payment plans for projects above $3000. Please inquire.
We will work closely with you to elaborate your message and translate the nuances of your story, vision, and wishes into refined designs that are representative of your style and cohesive with your wedding theme.
The design process starts with a design board highlighting the aesthetics, inspiration, and details for your project. We’ll present you a few design concepts and will work through fonts, colors, paper choices and print methods together during the revisions. Once approved, well refine the design & layout and prepare the file for print production.
Once we receive your invitations from our trusted printers, we will inspect each and every card and make sure everything is assembled and carefully packaged to be delivered to you securely and flawlessly.

Start your project
We are passionate about creating designs that reflect the core of your story in a sophisticated and intentional way.
When commissioning your bespoke experience, we use (almost) exclusively specialty printing methods (letterpress, foil stamping, embossing and offset) to bring the designs to life. We will make suggestions based on your aesthetic style, project details, and budget.
Our materials are selected from our library of premium papers and envelopes to present you with a range of options and possibilities. We will discuss finishes, colors, paperweights, and more, to ensure that the paper selections are ideal and cohesive with your project.
The entire process usually takes between 3 to 5+ months from the initial inquiry to the time that your invitations will be ready to mail.
When to Order
We book our projects on the first-come-first-serve basis and only work with a limited number of bespoke clients each year to ensure the exclusivity our clients deserve.
To secure your spot in our calendar, we recommend you to book your invitations at least 8 months before your wedding date.
