Types of printing: Digital (flat), letterpress, and foil
components of the wedding invitation
Invite: This is the main piece, and the largest card. This is where you will put who's hosting (parents, or "together with our families"), the date, time, and location. Also putting if there is a reception often helps your guests (such as "reception to follow"). No website addresses, rsvp or reception details should be on your invitation, just the basics.
Reply Cards with envelopes: This is the most common way for your guests to reply, and the most formal. You will have a small reply card with a self-addressed envelope with postage that you will include for your guests.
Inserts: These cards are multi-taskers, and you can have a few different inserts with your invitation suite. Primarily, inserts are used for adding other helpful information (website addresses, accommodations, transportation, brunch information, etc.). Another way inserts can work for you is for rehearsal dinner invites - you can include these cards to only the guests invited to the rehearsal dinner, and a great way to also save a little by enclosing them with the invitation.
If you are having an informal ceremony, or want to save money on postage using a reply insert is another great way to obtain replies from your guests. It will have your website information and reply deadline date where they can submit it electronically vs. mailing it back to you.
Maps: Insert cards can also be used for custom map drawings, particularly if you are having a destination wedding or having a lot of out of town guests. It's a great way to visually show them where all the events are located, and we can custom draw maps to match any of our designs.
Invite Envelope: All of our invitation suites come with standard soft white envelopes., and your invitation suite will go in this main envelope. If you are worried about damage to the outer envelope or having a formal ceremony, then we recommend using an outer envelope. Also called "double envelopes", this is the outer envelope that can have the guest and return addressing, as well as your postage, and then your invitation envelope will go inside. Since it is common for the outer envelope to become damaged in shipment, this is a great way to preserve your invitation suite during mailing.
RSVP Envelope: Standard with our reply cards, the rsvp envelope will be included and will be self-addressed to you, and you will also apply postage to this prior to mailing your invites.
pricing + customization
The pricing guide below offers an easy way for you to price your stationery and receive an instant quote. Included are complimentary ink color + wording changes, blank soft white envelopes, and three proofs to make your design perfect.

how to place your order
We have a very easy process for you to order your stationery! With wedding stationery, you will order in 3 steps - save the dates (about 6-8 months in advance), then invites (4-5 months in advance), and then day of stationery (about 4-6 weeks in advance).
1. Choose a design from the collection, and read the pricing guide for a quote on your stationery. We offer samples for all of our designs; please use the link below if you would like to see a nonpersonalized sample prior to placing your order.
2. Decide which options you would like from The Design Guide, such as ink colors, paper color, edging, envelope liners, etc.
3. Prepare your wording for each card, as well as how many invitation suites you will need. You will count the number of addresses, and then add 20%. Should you need assistance with your wording, just put a rough draft and let us know during checkout that you would like assistance!
3. Purchase your nonrefundable deposit in our shop, and you will receive a link to the design agreement.
4. I will begin designing, and once it's perfect I will send a link for you to provide final payment. If you would like to order guest addressing, use the template to the right under "resources" and you will submit that prior to making final payment.
5. Let's print! I will ship your order based on the timelines noted below.
Design time is based on the client's responsiveness to changes and final payment. Rush services are available for 20% of the order total (minimum $100). Please contact me prior to placing your order for availability.
Printing time (after final design approval and payment):
Invitations & save the dates: 2 weeks
Day-of Stationery: 1 week
rush printing: 1 week
Letterpress and Foil Printing
US shipping is an additional 2-4 business days; average shipping cost is $20-$40 (overnight also available). International shipping is approximately 7 business days via USPS Express; average cost is $60-90. Clients are responsible for their country's customs fees (if applicable).
how many invitations do I need?
The easiest way to determine the number will be to create your guest address list, and count the number of addresses you are sending to. Once you have this number, add approximately 10-20% onto this for extras, as well as damaged or lost invites from the mail. Should you need more at a later date, the minimum quantity is 30.
Custom Design Services
If you do not see a design in the collection that is perfect, then I also offer custom designs on a limited basis. Please visit the custom designs page for more information.
