How does it work?

Hello- I'm Liz, the artist and owner of Chicks n Hens. I will guide you through the design process with advice on wording, traditions, proper etiquette, and my design expertise. I have a BA from Purdue University in Art and Design, and have dedicated that past 9+ years to illustration work and the wedding industry. 

Request a quote for your wedding project here. You will receive a quote via email. After a design fee is purchased (which is the only way to reserve a spot on my schedule), a questionnaire will be emailed to you. You can provide information regarding your event location, flowers, colors, design desires, etc. along with photos of you and your significant other, pets, children, flowers, inspiration, etc. Working from your questionnaire, designs begin as a sketch, and are translated into full color custom illustrations + initial design samples. We'll work together to get your designs just right.


Once perfected- I'll bring your illustrations to life on paper with my knowledge of quality printing processes, thoughtfully curated card stock options, calligraphy services, and more. (Digital files are also an option for most designs if you prefer to print locally.)

Your wedding is an intimately personal event, and I feel passionate about bespoke stationary which translates each of my client's unique personalities and event ideas. Because of this, I do not reuse or resell custom wedding designs.
