How does this work?
Our Wedding Collection features a carefully curated set of premade designs, ready for your customization. Ink colors, wording, print method, envelope and paper colors are all customizable. If your wording is longer or shorter than what is seen online, or if you wish to delete a graphic we are happy to adjust it to fit your needs.
The design templates from our Collection come with the fonts, general layout, graphics, etc. as pictured. Customization can be accommodated for an additional fee; please inquire prior to purchase. If you do not see your perfect invitation suite and are looking for a custom design, visit our Custom Weddings page for further details.
01. Place Your Order
Once you have chosen your perfect design, purchase your initial design fee and during checkout you will provide all of your wording and details. It is important to have your wording proofread and spellchecked when you submit your order; we are also happy to provide wording assistance if requested.
Your initial proof will be sent within 3-4 business days, and you will either approve your proof as is or make changes (one round of changes is included; additional proofs are available for a fee). Once you approve your design, your final invoice will be sent, and your initial design fee will be credited.
03. Printing & Shipping
Once we have received your final payment, printing will begin. For digital printing, most orders ship in 2 weeks; however, for non-standard paper & color envelopes, it may take 3 weeks. Letterpress & foil average around 5 weeks. Rush printing options are available - please visit the FAQs at the bottom of the page for more information.
Transit time is 3-4 days for domestic (averages $25 - $45) and 5-7 for international (averages $75 - $95). Overnight shipping is available for domestic orders.
We offer three print methods to choose from, as well as various paper sizes for invitations (5x7, 6x9, and 4x9). You may choose any size for any of our designs.
Digital (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.
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.
While similar to letterpress, foil printing uses a shiny metallic foil instead of ink, and works best with one color or mixed with letterpress.
118 lb. Cotton
Our standard paper is a luxurious 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.
110 lb. Stone Paper
This 100% cotton eco-friendly paper is made in Italy, and has a little bit of texture with a gorgeous brown-gray hue. This paper is available for an additional .35 per card.
140 lb. Gray Paper
This archival paper is acid and chlorine-free, extra thick with a beautiful texture and the perfect gray hue. This paper is available for an additional .35 per card.
We offer 3 different edging options: traditional square corners, hand-torn edging, and rounded corners. Please note that for 236 lb. paper, hand torn edging is not available.
To coordinate with our timeless design style, you can choose from the envelope colors below. White or Ivory are standard with your order, or you may choose a color option for .45 each.
Below you will find our standard digital & letterpress ink colors. Please note that these colors will vary from monitor to print. Custom colors can also be accommodated.
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.
HOW MANY SHOULD I ORDER?
You will count the number of addresses, and then add 10-20% extra for lost invites in the mail, damaged invites and keepsakes. For example: you have 87 addresses, so you would order a quantity of 100.
DO YOU OFFER RUSH SERVICES?
Yes, I can rush your printing for you on a case-by-case basis. Digital is approximately 1 week (+20% of the order total) and letterpress/foil is approximately 3 weeks (+40% of the order total). It is recommend that you get in touch prior to purchase to ensure availability.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO CHANGE THE LAYOUT OR FONTS OF A DESIGN?
The designs have been carefully created with the typography, graphics and layouts that you see. If you want to change fonts or the layout (moving items around or changing orientation), please inquire prior to purchase.
WILL MY CARDS COME ASSEMBLED?
In order to keep costs down as well as ensure your cards arrive safely, all designs will ship flat and unassembled.
DO YOU OFFER PRINTABLE FILES?
In order to preserve the integrity of the designs, I do not offer printable files except for large signage or other specialty items for your day-of stationery.
DO YOU CHARGE TAX?
If you are in the great state of Texas, 8.25% sales tax will be applied to your order.
