Welcome to August + White
August + White is an online boutique design studio featuring the finest materials for your wedding stationery. I offer a full online experience, which allows my clients the flexibility and the ease of designing. With different high quality papers and three printing methods (digital, letterpress, and foil), let's create something beautiful!
All designs are available as Save the Dates, Invitation Suites and matching day-of paper.
Digital Printing: Digital (or flat) printing is sent directly from the computer to a commercial printer. All of my digitally printed invitations are completed in house, to give you the best quality. If you have a tighter budget, or want to print with multiple colors, digital printing is the best choice. It also has the fastest turnaround time.
Letterpress Printing: Letterpress is one of the oldest forms of printing, where a plate is made of your design and then “pressed” into the paper using an antique press. If you have the budget, this is the best method of printing. Letterpress works well with only 1-2 colors chosen for the entire design.
Foil Printing: Foil printing (or foil stamping) also uses a plate of your design, but a special machine to press the design into the paper. This will not leave a deep impression, but instead of ink it uses a metallic film. This works best with one color chosen for the whole design.
You can also mix letterpress and foil together to create your suite; if you are interested in this, please contact me with your chosen design and ideas for a custom quote.
pricing + customization
You can receive an instant, full quote for your order by using the pricing guide below! Included with every order:

PLACING YOUR ORDER + TURNAROUND TIMES
My goal as a stationer is to provide you with affordable stationery, without the custom price tag, in an easy-to-use online system. In one step, you will provide your initial payment (design fee) and complete a form with wording, ink color(s), envelope options and any other additional elements you would like. I will email you a standard design agreement, and provide you with your first proof within 3 business days.
Once you love your design, your final invoice will be sent, and then will go to print! Printing time is 2-3 weeks for digital & 6 weeks for letterpress/foil.
Rush options available; please read the faqs below for more details.
Transit time is in addition to the printing timelines above. Standard FedEx is 3-5 days; average cost is $25 - $45.
USPS International shipping is 5 business days; average cost is $75 - $95 (not including customs fees).
How many should I order?
You will count the number of addresses, and then add 10-20% extra for lost invites in the mail, damaged invites and keepsakes. For example: you have 87 addresses, so you would order a quantity of 100.
DO YOU OFFER RUSH SERVICES?
Yes, I can rush your printing for you on a case-by-case basis. Digital printing is one week (20% of the order total), and letterpress or foil is 2 weeks (40% of the order total). It is recommend that you get in touch prior to completing your initial payment for rush services to ensure that I have availability.
Is it possible to change the layout or fonts of a design?
The designs have been carefully created with the typography, graphics and layouts that you see. If you want to change fonts or the layout (moving items around or changing orientation), please contact me prior to placing your deposit.
Will my cards come assembled?
In order to keep costs down as well as ensure your cards arrive safely, all designs will ship flat and unassembled.
DO YOU OFFER PRINTABLE FILES?
In order to preserve the integrity of the designs, I do not offer printable files except for large signage or other specialty items for your day-of stationery.
DO YOU CHARGE TAX?
If you will be shipping within the state of Texas, 8.25% sales tax will be applied to your order.
