Wedding FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS —
Our sample packet offers a choice of three print methods, as well as a variety of paper weights, our choices of colored paper, colored envelopes, and a range of our available add-on items (wax seals, envelope liners, and more!) I’m a firm believer that it’s so important to see and touch paper when you’re deciding what to choose!
When deciding how many sets you need to order, ideally you need to count the number of households that you are sending invitations to and not the number of people being invited. It is recommended that you order at least 10 extra sets to keep on hand for last minute additions, and keepsakes.
The standard turnaround time for custom invitations is 6 to 8 weeks. If specialty printing or items are added, additional time is needed. It is recommended that you start the ordering process at least 4 to 6 months prior to the mailing date to make sure there is plenty of time and to keep the process as stress free as possible.
This is when the fun really begins! After you’ve booked with me, you’ll receive a fun wording questionnaire to fill out so I can get started on your designs. For your proofs, you’ll receive a digital layout of what your full suite looks like all together so you can get a real feel for how cohesive the design is.
Absolutely! If you don’t want to handwrite your guest names and addresses on the envelopes, or write the return address over and over again, let me take the stress off of you! You can choose to have them digitally printed or hand-lettered on each envelope. If you choose digital printing, the fonts and colors will coordinate with your invitation suite. If you choose the hand-lettered option, you can choose between, white, black, gold or silver ink.
Yes! I love a pretty colored envelope! They are the perfect pop to add to any suite. I gladly source premium quality envelopes from my trusted wholesale vendors. With this in mind, I can offer you low pricing for these envelopes that you won’t get anywhere else! I also keep many of the most popular colors in stock.
When you receive your invitations, if you purchase an envelope liner, those will be adhered to each envelope as part of our complimentary service. If you would like your cards stacked and stuffed into the envelopes, along with any additional ribbons or wax seals to complete your suite, that service can be added for an additional fee.
Custom artwork is exclusively offered for our save the dates, wedding invitations, and our day-of paper clients. We unfortunately do not create custom artwork for clients that are not ordering these items from us!
Save the Dates should be sent out approximately 6-8 months in advance to give your guests notice for planning and to make accommodations. Formal Invitations should be sent out 2 months before the wedding day, with an RSVP date of 4-5 weeks prior to the wedding. If the wedding is on a holiday weekend, a destination wedding, or if a majority of guests are from out of town, invitations can go out 12 weeks in advance.
When mailing your invitations, you will want to take a completely assembled suite to the local post office that you plan to mail your invitations from and have it weighed for accuracy. Invitation suites will range between 2 and 4 ounces, costing approximately $.71 – $1.13 to mail. Response cards are usually covered by a standard first class/forever stamp ($.50). Keep in mind that certain things will cause the cost to increase, such as ribbons, paper thickness, wax seals, etc. If you choose to use a wax seal on the outer envelope, you will be required to “hand-cancel” your postage. It could require additional postage for that service. But each post office is different.
