2014 Update for Potential Clients

Time is flying by!  Baci's second annual Handpicked Bridal Event will be here before we know it (June 26th at Hines Hill!!) and Baby C #2 will arrive just one short month after that - things can slow down any time now ;o)  In order to prepare for all of this goodness and simultaneously work through our busiest time of the year, we will temporarily closing our Production Calendar as of June 1st.  Meaning, we will be not be taking on new clients after the first of the month.

We are also fully booked through the Fall of this year (yay!!).  Here's a detailed view of what we're scheduling for now:

Wedding Clients
Custom Wedding Stationery (Save the Dates and Invitation Suites)
Now booking clients with wedding dates in March/April 2015 and beyond.

Custom Wedding Day-of Stationery
Now booking clients with wedding dates in December 2014/January 2015 and beyond.

Wedding Design
Now booking clients with wedding dates in March/April 2015 and beyond.

Non-wedding Clients
Personal Stationery (Note cards, holiday greetings, etc.)
Now scheduling completion for October 2014 and beyond.

Event Stationery
Now booking clients with events for October 2014 and beyond.

Event Design
Now booking clients with events for October 2014 and beyond

I will be taking Maternity Leave beginning Saturday, July 12th and will not fully return to work until Monday, October 20th.  While I will be working with current clients during my leave, I will not take on new jobs until I return in October.  That just means if you aren't on the calendar before June 1st, you'll unfortunately have to wait until October.  While we hate to turn away amazing potential clients (which we know you all are!!), we want to make sure we have the time and energy to dedicate to all of the fabulous people we already have on our Production Calendar :o)

If your date fall outside of the dates above, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.  It's possible, after knowing more about your request, that we could squeeze you in!

Thanks so much for being with us on this wonderful journey!
