CUSTOM WATERCOLOR CREST

full product details

A custom watercolor crest is a beautiful representation of your lives coming together as one. Each icon can represent your individual/shared interests, hobbies, careers, special places, and more! Crests are a fun way to add your personality to wedding details and can even act as a "logo" for your special day! They can be used early on for save-the-dates, bridal showers, and your wedding website and then as a continued aesthetic throughout stationery, signage, wedding welcome gifts, and favors.

Long after your wedding day, use this piece of family heraldry on home decor and personalized family stationery. A flag outside your home, notepads to write messages to your child's teacher, and embroidered crest towels are just a few of the many ways they can be enjoyed for years to come!

WHATEVER DETAILS YOU CHOOSE TO INCLUDE, IT'S SURE TO BE BEAUTIFUL, TIMELESS, AND YOU!

DETAILS

CREST COLOR

One of your first choices to make when creating a custom watercolor crest, is to choose the color for the crest shape. There are 18 lovely colors from which to choose so you'll definitely find one to complement your wedding day palette. 

FLORAL

BANNER

AGREEMENT

DIGITAL FILES

Floral is used in all of my watercolor crests. I suggest tying in the flowers you plan on using in your wedding for a continuous aesthetic.  I'll help you make sure there is the correct mix of focal, linear, and filler flowers for a balanced design.

Use the banner to highlight your wedding date or last name. It's color may be the same as the crest or a different color from the collection of 18 options. If you choose to order an additional monogram, you can also have your banner text changed. 

When your watercolor crest is approved and completed, I'll send you three types of digital files: a transparent PNG, and JPG, and a PDF. This allows you to print your crest for personal use however you like.

Once your crest has been purchased, I'll start a project for you in HoneyBook and send you an agreement to electronically sign. If you want to check on the project availability or ask questions before purchasing, simply start by completing the contact form here

MONOGRAM

Choose the style for your custom monogram. I'll help you select from a cursive or traditional design and which colors to use. You also have the option of upgrading to an additional monogram if you wish to use a new surname initial after marriage.

TURNAROUND TIME

PRINTING

Icons are what really bring your story to life in a custom watercolor crest. Use them to show where you met, what you love to do, your faith, pets, interests...anything that represents what matters most to you two.

While most choose a traditional symmetrical design, an asymmetrical crescent-shaped design is also an option for your crest. These are a pretty option for modern, floral-only crests.

Custom crests take about 5-7 business days to complete. Please keep in mind that this date does not start at your time of purchase. After receiving payment, completing a questionnaire, and signing an agreement, we will schedule a design week based upon my availability. 

You may print your crest on your own or order fun details through The Welcoming District, whichever you prefer.

*Printing rights for unlimited personal use.

Yes, within reason. Larger prints for your home will print beautifully and projecting your crest onto your reception dance floor will look great! As long as you don't need to print it on a billboard, you should be fine as it is a high-resolution image. :)

WILL I BE ABLE TO USE MY CREST FOR LARGER PRINTS?
answer:
WHAT IF I NEED A DIFFERENT SIZE FILE?
answer:

If you choose to work with a stationery company where you can upload your own files, they may have very specific size requests. You can resize them yourself with programs like PicMonkey or I can create them for you for $25 per file resize. 

WHEN SHOULD I ORDER CREST PRODUCTS?
answer:

The sooner the better especially when it's your wedding. You don't want to stress about whether a special item will be ready in time. Each product has its own turnaround, shipping can vary, and occasionally printing companies are backordered on certain items, so its best to order as soon as possible. Rush orders and shipping may be an option for some things, but not all.

DO YOU ACCEPT RUSH ORDERS?
answer:

Sometimes, but it depends on the item/service and your deadline. Please check with me first before making a purchase. Rush fees vary.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I ORDER MY CREST?
answer:

It depends on how you want to use it, but the sooner the better. A custom crest takes about a week to design and your start date depends on my design schedule. If I'm booked for the next month and your wedding is in a month, you would need to go with a predesigned crest.
