Gather + Nest Studio is owned by Carrie Moscho, who has been filling notebooks with lettering and cursive names since elementary school. After years of doing projects for friends and family, Carrie decided to open Gather + Nest Studio as a way to put more energy into providing thoughtfully made, hand-produced work.

Gather + Nest seeks to marry my passion for event details (gathering) and interior styling and design (nesting), and is based in Rochester, Minnesota. I collaborate with event planners and creatives to bring beautiful stationery and design to their personal or business projects, events or weddings. I work on paper products with ink or watercolor; on fabric with paint; on chalkboards with chalk or paint, and digitize lettering to design your logo or invitation elements.

When I'm not covered in ink or paint, I'm chasing and playing with my pup, Penny, or lounging with my husband, Andy.

Curious About Our Process?

Don’t worry - we’ve got our systems down so you can be involved with the fun stuff, and let us handle all the nitty gritty details.

Consultation

It all begins with a meeting. I will collaborate about design style, colors, wording etiquette, and budget considerations. This will give us the opportunity to truly learn as much as I can about you and what you are looking for in your wedding and stationery—the feel of your event. During our conversation, I will ask you questions that will help us draw inspiration for your suite; favorite colors, your venue, your vibe, etc.

Proposal

Once I have our initial consultation, you will be sent a proposal detailing the pieces discussed. After review, your signed agreement and deposit will indicate the beginning of our working relationship.

Once the Proposal has been signed and our working relationship begins, you will receive a timeline highlighting the next steps in creating your custom stationery, including proofs, printing, and final mail dates.


Design

Once the timeline is established, I will start designing the first stages of your custom stationery. I will share these first stage concept drawing with you digitally via email. During this phase of the process, you will let me know if I am on the right track with the design, or if I should make changes to the general design direction.

I will provide fully mocked-up design proofs based on your feedback. This process will be repeated two additional times (for a total of 3 revisions). If any additional revisions are needed beyond the 3 revisions, I will check in before continuing and discuss if a secondary discussion is needed to generate and communicate new ideas. At this time, an updated pricing structure and timeline may be needed. When you sign off on your final design and wording, the remainder of your invoice is due.


After receiving your payment, I will order your invitation suites and any other supplies necessary. I will produce your invitations to the specifications agreed upon. When you have provided your final mailing list (don’t worry - I provide an etiquette guide with formal and more modern options, as well as a template), I will address your invitations.

Production


When production of your suite is completed, I will determine the necessary postage and invoice you for the exact postage and purchase your approved postage selections. This is done at the end to ensure availability of postage and exact weight of your suite. I will put your invitations in the mail, and you can happy dance as your guests receive them!
