When should I order my invitations?

Announcement or shower invitations should be ordered two or more weeks before you wish to send them to guests. You should allow eight to ten weeks for wedding invitations.


When should I mail my invitations?

Typically 6-8 weeks before your wedding date. For showers and parties you should allow 4-6 weeks. Save the dates should be mailed 4 months to a year before the wedding.


How many should I order?

It's always safe count up the number of invitations you will need to send out and add 10-15% in order to account for some people you may have forgotten and keepsakes for albums or scrapbooks.


Do I need to order extra envelopes?

You can but it is often not necessary since we include 10% extra envelopes in every order to account for mistakes.


Are you able to able to match the specific colors I have chosen?

Of course! We'd love to! Send us a swatch and we will find a corresponding color to use in your design.


How much does a custom invitation or announcement cost?

Since each design is completely unique we don't have a set price but we'd love to work with you to come up with something that is beautiful and won't blow your budget. Cost all depends on what type of printing we use, the paper, the quantity, and the complexity of your design.


Will you address the envelopes for us?

Sure! If you send us an Excel document with all of the addresses we can print on the envelopes or hand address them. This fee will be figured into the final cost. We can also get you in touch with a calligrapher if you'd like to go that route.
