Our story.

Hi! I'm Elisa and I am the Owner and Design admin at Designed with Amore.
I was born in Chioggia, a small town south of Venice, in Italy. I spent most of my early teen years wandering around with a sketch book and a pen, drawing anything inspiring I was seeing, daydreaming on a piece of paper.
In 2007 I graduated Summa Cum Laude at the University of Architecture and Design in Venice. In late 2009 destiny led me to meet the most incredible man on earth (quite the long story really!) and in 2011 I officially moved to the United States to marry him (Veni, Vidi, Vici)

Planning our wedding we realized how stressing and frustrating the process can be. We took every choice together and, of course, always trying to save a penny.
When it came to wedding invitations we knew we wanted something custom and designed around "us" as a couple, and it was getting clear how it was going to be very difficult to find something unique in what is often a cookie-cutter-oversaturated market.
And so we simply decided to do it ourself! Creating our wedding invitations and wedding stationery was so fun as inspiring that I thought it would have been so great to do it as a full time job.
Today I could not be happier about my job, I get the chance to be surrounded by one of the most exciting and inspiring market which is the wedding market, I have the opportunity to travel and meet so many gorgeous couples and be a little part of their wedding day.


Why choosing us?

We are well aware that the wedding invitations market is a huge one, and that there are thousands of websites out there, a lot of them being big, but we do firmly believe in our product. We hand-make each one of our wedding invitation cards here in our studio in Michigan, using only the highest quality supplies, the best printing process and of course a lot of love and care.
Communication is without doubt one of the most important aspects of our job, that is why we always make sure to keep a constant line of communication with every client from the very moment an inquiry is made to the moment the customer receives their goodies.
We have worked with over 4500 brides in less than 3 years, our designs cover a large variety of wedding themes, from rustic wedding invitations, to vintage wedding invitations, all the way to modern watercolor wedding invites. Because most of our work is done custom specifically for the customer, we can match any card to any design in our store, from wedding programs, to save the date cards, all the way to thank you notes and placecards.

Even though the studio is officially operating Monday through Friday, we work around the clock to make sure we are constantly offering a fresh and original work.
Make sure to stop on our website www.designedwithamore.com and leave a quick message on our always present chat or send us an email at designedwithamore [!at] gmail.com , we are always happy to chat!!

Samples in our store are generic pre printed samples with stock wording and featured colors (specified on each listing). We do not accept requests for custom samples at this moment.
One fully custom sample is included free of charge on any bulk orders of 50 min, before production.
SAMPLES PRODUCTION AND DELIVERY TIMES:
Samples are shipped via first class mail within 5 business days from purchase. First class mail reaches most US places within 7 to 10 business days. International orders may take up to 4 weeks for delivery. A sample will be shipped free of charge if the sample is not delivered within these timelines.

▶ BULK ORDERS
It is considered a bulk order, an order of 50 cards minimum. A bulk order is customized in wording and color.

HOW IT WORKS:
• Initial inquiry (through online form bit.ly/orderinvitations
• Quote, proposal, and suggested timeline are sent. Contract and retainer are due
• Initial proofs are sent
• Proofing
• Hard copy request (recommended)
• Official proof sign off
• Printing and production

The retainer (deposit) will be deducted from the total amount due for the wedding invitations/other products. Deposits are not refundable. The remaining balance must be paid in full before bulk production.

▶ PROOFING
It is the client's responsibility to carefully review their proofs for any error. That includes: spelling, layout, website URLS, phone numbers, directions, etc. Once the final proofing contract is signed by the client, the items will be printed and produced as per contract sign off. The client takes full responsibility on any editable error at that point.

▶ QUANTITIES
Most styles of invitations must be ordered in quantities over 50. We recommend to order an approximate 10% extra for keepsake and last minute added guests.

▶ DESIGN PROPERTY
All designs and concepts are property of Designed with Amore LLC, which retains all rights to use the preliminary and completed designs for the purpose of display or for other clients, upon request.

▶ RUSH ORDERS
Orders may be considered RUSH if they are needed within a 5 week turnaround. Rush orders are accepted depending on availability and the requirements of the project. Rush orders will add a charge of 15% to your order total. Final payment is due prior to printing

▶ PAYMENT METHODS
Designed with Amore LLC currently accepts cash, check, paypal and credit cards. There is a $25 fee for returned checks. All payments, including checks must be cashed before printing begins.

▶ RETURNS AND CANCELLATIONS
If there is a need to cancel your order, please contact Designed with Amore LLC right away. If your final approval has not been received and your project has not gone into production, you are responsible for your deposit and any materials that have been purchased. If your project has gone into the production process you are responsible for the entire amount as stated in your contract.
Because of the personalization of custom stationery, orders are non-refundable, without exception. Every effort is made to assure your satisfaction.
If there is an error on the part of Designed with Amore, we will do our best to correct the problem

▶ DELIVERY
All shipping and postage will be assumed by the client.
Designed with Amore LLC is not responsible for any damages incurred during shipping and/or mailing or invitations that are not delivered. Any shipping charges will be added to your final invoice. You may also pick-up your order to avoid shipping charges.
Unless otherwise requested by the customer, our packages will be shipped via USPS Priority mail, and delivery may require a signature based on the total price of the package.

▶ INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
Designed with Amore LLC does ship internationally. Unless otherwise requested by the customer, our packages will be shipped via USPS Priority mail, and delivery may require a signature based on the total price of the package. International charges will be based on current charges on usps.com. Please note that international packages will go through customs and can be retained for a short to a long time. Designed with Amore LLC will not be responsible for the time the package is retained in customs. Although we mark all our international shipments as “Gifts” to avoid high duty charges, these may still apply to your package. The client is solely responsible for duties and taxes payments at the time of delivery.

▶ MAILING YOUR INVITATIONS
Mailing single Invitations occasionally incur additional postage because of their weight, or due to the shape of the finished piece. Designed with Amore LLC is not responsible for overcharge in postage, or for invitations or stationery that is lost in the mail or is destroyed through the mailing process. It is your responsibility to check pricing with your post office at the time of purchase.

Additional policies and FAQs
▶ VERBIAGE
The client is solely responsible for any mistake on the provided verbiage. We exercise reasonable care to avoid errors, and will advise the client whereas a mistake may be found. We are however not entitled to change any wording without notice and we are not liable for any mistake found on the final proofs.

▶ COLORS
Screens and mobiles display colors according to transmitted light in the RGB gamut (red, green and blue) gamut, whereas paper displays colors according to the absorption and reflection of light of CMYK colors (cyan, magenta, yellow and black). In other words your monitor and mobile are back lit, which will in most cases result in a digital image much brighter and vivid than a printed image.

This is one of the main reasons why we always encourage requesting a hard copy sample where a specific shade of color is needed (restrictions apply)

▶ SIZES
The client is solely responsible for making sure that the cards are the needed sizes. The sizes of all your cards and envelopes were specified on your original invoice.

Our postcards are set up to comply with the United States postal service postcard size requirements; we are not aware of every country's specific requirements, if you are shipping your cards outside the United states, it is your responsibility to check with your postal service about sizes. We will be happy to accommodate size changes where needed BEFORE proofs approval and BEFORE printing. Designed with Amore is not liable for any misplaced/lost/damaged/returned postcards or piece of mail.

Certain invitation sizes will require more postage (such as 6 ½ square envelopes); Designed with Amore LLC is not responsible for overcharge in postage, or for invitations or stationery that is lost in the mail or is destroyed through the mailing process. It is your responsibility to check pricing with your post office at the time of purchase.

▶ CARD STOCK AND ENVELOPES
Unless otherwise specified, your cards will be printed on white card stock, in the nature and texture chosen. If a file is invoiced as “printed front only”, the back side will be white. We can print the back side when requested (fees will apply according to the nature of the printing).
Please also note that different card stocks might also create different effects and may absorb toner differently.

▶ HANDMADE NATURE OF CARDS
Our cards are handmade and created one by one in our studio in Michigan. Minor differences in colors throughout the job and minor differences during assembly can happen. We quality check every card making sure it complies to high quality standards.

▶ DIGITAL REPRESENTATIONS OF NON-PRINTED ITEMS
Laser cut cards, pocket folders, embellishments such as lace and burlap and other non-printed items are represented at the best of our possibilities on your final proofs and as part of your proofs, they are approved along with them. Although we try our best to represent them as close as possible to reality, colors of these items may be slightly misrepresented (see colors section above). If you have any question about these items please let us know.
