We strive to provide a simple and care-free process for our clients so we created this guide to help you in your ordering process of our semi-custom and custom invitations. Please read below to find out about our options in customizing your wedding paper.

 

 

Step 1 - quote

We know each invitation needs are different so we encourage you to fill out our quote request form to determine the cost of your invitations. Refer to this guide to help you select options such as paper, printing type, and embellishments.

Step 2 - place an Order

Once you have finalized the details with us, we will begin with a non-refundable deposit and signed contract. When you purchase the deposit, a form will be available to you to write your content.

Step 3 - proofing

You will then receive a digital proof of your invitations in 3 business days for a semi-custom suite and 5 business days for a custom suite. One round of minor revisions is included in your order, additional rounds will incur a fee. Once your proofs are approved, we will move forward to production.

Step 4 - production

You will receive an invoice from us for the remaining balance. Then, we will proceed with printing once payment is received. This stage is when your invitations are being printed, addressed, and assembled. Production takes 2-5 weeks depending on the size of your order.

Step 5 - shipment

Once completed, your order will be packed and weighed. This way we can accurately calculate the shipping cost then you will receive a shipping invoice from us. You will be notified when they have shipped along with the tracking info.
