long before my event should I order my invites?
It’s recommended that you send out invitations six to eight weeks before
event. If you’ll be inviting out-of-town guests and would like to send
out “save-the-date cards,” we can design those to match the rest
of your wedding package. Those cards should be sent out 4-6 months prior to
Is there a minimum order? We do require a minimum $300 order.
Can I order the extra items offered without ordering invites? You can order any or all of the items that we offer. Don’t hesitate to ask us for something we may not have listed on the site. We’re open to discussing anything you’d like to order for your special occasion.
Do you ship overseas? We’ll ship your invites wherever you’d like us to ship them.
Do you require a deposit? We require a 50% deposit to reserve your spot on the production schedule. The remaining 50% plus shipping fees is due at the time of shipping. Illinois residents are required to pay 9% tax.
What are my payment options? We accept checks, money orders or credit cards.
Can I order a sample to be mailed to me? Due to the nature of handmade invitations, it is costly to send out samples. We offer samples of each invite at the cost that the invite is listed on the pricing page for that invite or a custom sample will be designed and produced for $20. Sample order form.
Do you have wording options or suggestions? Please feel free to go to wording options section of the web site.
Can you print my invites in another language? We can print in any language you’d like. We prefer the wording exactly how you want it to appear. This includes making sure the punctuation and placement of accent marks are correct.
Do you offer letterpress or thermography? Yes, we do. It does raise the price of the invitation quite a bit and requires more time in production. Please send us an email and we can give you the details and get a quote for you.
How long does it take complete an order? All invitations & cards are handmade. Time frame depends on the complexity of the invitation and quantity. An average order of 100 invitations will normally take around 4 weeks to complete. We do offer rush jobs at 20% over the regular price.
How does the whole process work? After you have selected your invitation and entered your wording using our easy to use online ordering form. We will contact you via email to let you know we have received your order. We will then set up your work and send a pdf proof to you via email for your approval. After you have approved the invitation, we will then send a final sample (see ordering samples above for details) in the mail for you to see and feel. Production will begin after you have given us your approval either by email or fax and we have received your 50% deposit, either by check, money order, or credit card. The remaining owed, including shipping costs, is due at time of shipping.
After I receive the proof can I still make changes? You can make changes to your order until we have received your approval and we begin producing your order. Changes after that will be charged accordingly.
If I like parts of one invitation and pieces of another what can you do? Most of our work is custom so we can change any part of the invitation to fit your needs. We encourage creativity.
How much does shipping cost? Shipping costs are determined by the weight of the order and the final destination. We prefer to ship FedEx, but we will give you options at the completion of your order.
