Working With Us
Our Custom Design Process
All our custom projects generally start with a complimentary design consultation to establish what you’re looking for and the scope of your project. This can be done either in person at our studio or over the phone.
Chatting with you about your project helps us pinpoint your needs and aesthetic so we can put together a proposal and quote. If you’re happy with everything we’ve discussed a payment of 50% is required to begin work and secure a place in our production calendar.
It’s time to start designing and bring your project to life! Depending on your project we may start with some rough sketches of a couple of different options for the design. Once we’ve found the direction that you love, we will provide you with digital mockups of the design for you to review.
The next step in the design phase is making sure everything is exactly what you want. Double and triple checking all the info on your pieces so that they are absolutely perfect. Custom designs generally include 2 complimentary rounds of revisions. Additional design revisions can of course be made at an additional cost.
Once everything is just perfect and you’ve signed off on your print ready artwork, it’s time to start production! Printing and production generally takes about 10 days depending on the complexity of the project and if any supplies need to be custom ordered.
When your project is complete we’ll confirm the delivery or shipping method with you and get your order all packed up and ready to head out the door to you. Before your projects starts its journey to you, the final payment on your invoice is due.
Enjoy your new lovingly printed goods. We’d love if you tagged us in any of your social media posts (@hubbubpaperco).

We custom mix all our colours so you can specify your colour from the Pantone Solid Uncoated guide. We also have gold and silver inks. Unlike foil, these inks will have a muted lustre rather than the shine of foil. They do provide good coverage on dark or coloured papers. We also do foil printing if your looking for a truly shiny metallic look.
