Place Your Order
Once you have your guest list prepared as well as your wording, you are now ready to place your order! If you are ordering guest addressing, you will complete our Guest Addressing template prior to order submission, which will ensure that you are ordering enough cards.
Printing + Timing
General timing from order placement until you receive your cards is about 3-4 weeks (5-6 for letterpress/foil). This time depends on the responsiveness to the client for design changes and approval.
Once you have approved your design and paid your shipping invoice, your order will be printed. Standard production is about 1-2 weeks for digital, and 4-5 weeks for letterpress. Rush options are available; digital is typically 3-5 business days (+20% of the order total) and letterpress/foil is approximately 3 weeks (+50% of the order total). Timing does not include US Holidays when the shop is closed.
Transit time is 3-4 days for domestic (averages $25 - $45; overnight available) and 5-7 for international (averages $75 - $95). All orders are shipped with tracking & insurance, and require a signature upon delivery.
Customizing Your Stationery
Digital (or flat) Printing: A perfect choice for the economical couple, this method allows you to print in multiple colors. It also has the fastest turnaround time.
Letterpress Printing: One of the oldest forms of printing, letterpress uses a plate of your design and then “pressed” into the paper using an antique press. If you have the budget and only need 1-2 colors, this is the best method of printing.
Foil Printing (or foil stamping): While similar to letterpress, foil printing uses a shiny metallic foil instead of ink, and works best with one color or mixed with letterpress. Please note that you are not able to place a foil order online at this time - for pricing and how to order, please contact us.
Please note that it is strongly discouraged to mix digital printing with either letterpress or foil printing, due to the dramatic differences in the methods as well as the differences in colors.
Our paper is a luxurious 118 lb. 100% tree-free cotton, available in White or Ivory, and is soft to the touch. For letterpress, it is also available in a double-thick 236 lb. option for a 20% surcharge. We offer square corners and hand-torn edging for our cotton paper. Please note that for 236 lb. paper, hand torn edging is not available.
Save the dates come with your choice of white or ivory envelopes. For invitation suites, to coordinate with our timeless design style, you can choose from any of the envelope colors below.
Below you will find our standard digital & letterpress ink colors (custom colors can also be accommodated). Please note that these colors will vary from monitor to print.
We offer additional options to make your stationery unique. All of these items are available in our Embellishments shop and can be purchased at the same time as your stationery.
Twine: Our natural hemp twine is thin, so it is perfect to keep your cards together and add a rustic touch.
Belly Bands: A perfect way to hold your cards together! These can be blank or customized with your names & wedding date. Paper colors available are the same as the envelope colors above.
Vellum: Our sheer vellum paper can either be large belly band style (known as a jacket), or a vellum overlay that goes over top of the invitation. Note that vellum is delicate, so you will be able to see through the paper.
Custom Maps: To coordinate with your design, I also offer simple custom map drawings, which are perfect for a destination wedding! Pricing begins at $100 for 3 streets & locations, and each street/location is $25.
Frequently Asked Questions
