Harmony Invitations approached us with the desire to design and build an industry leading print-on-demand platform allowing brides to quickly and easily customize a wedding invitation suite. Their vision was to allow a bride to feel confident in customizing her suite while selecting from preconfigured designs, colors, and options that enable her to create a beautiful and personalized card. Then, after the order is placed, for print files to automatically generate and download into a print template that would be accessed directly by the manufacturing facility.
The platform offers instant and unparalleled customization features while being supported by a sophisticated back end that allows the solution to be “white labeled”. The Administrative portal will allow each brand to configure their own designs, text, colors, options and pricing. The customer facing portal is easy to navigate, and allows a bride to instantly preview her design. She can easily add and remove options, such as decorative edges, backside photos, ribbons, die-cut motifs, and foiled stamped charms. With every keystroke the price of the suite updates and is clearly visible.
Upon the order being placed the low resolution, customized images generated by the customer are seamlessly translated into high resolution print ready files with bleeds and foil layers. This smart manufacturing technology is then able to select the production template that will maximize production efficiency depending on the mix of suite items that are chosen by the customer. This keeps costs low and productivity high, so that each brand is able to maintain their margins. Ultimately the customer receives beautiful, high quality custom wedding stationary decorated with their choice of ribbons and flair that she is proud to send.
