Pricing

Below you will find our simple pricing guide, which will be your order total (except for shipping + tax for Texas residents). You will find the cards that you need to the left, and scroll over to find the quantity and the price. Average shipping costs for domestic are $25-$45, and $75 - $95 for international.


The Process

.01

Prepare your guest list to determine the quantity needed (it is recommended that you add 20% for extras). If we will be printing your guests' addresses on the envelopes, please visit our guest addressing page prior to purchase to complete your template. This will ensure that you have the proper quantity when placing your order.

 

.02

When you have your wording ready, find your perfect design from the Collection and purchase the design fee in the shop. This fee will be credited on your final invoice, and is not in addition to our pricing. During checkout, you will provide all of your details so we can create your first proof.  Once we have received your order, we will send a design agreement for signature.


.03

You will receive your first proof within 2-3 business days from receipt of the design agreement, as well as an estimate of your total order. An extra proof is included for any wording changes you need to make.
 

 

 

.04

Once you have approved your design and paid your final invoice, your order will go to print!

Customizing Your Stationery

 

Print Methods

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 we never recommend mixing digital with either letterpress or foil printing, due to the dramatic differences in the methods as well as the differences in colors. 

 

Paper

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.

 

Envelopes

All orders come with your choice of blank white or ivory envelopes; or, you may upgrade to one of our color envelopes below for .35 each.

 
 

 

 

Ink Colors

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. Custom ink colors are also available!

 

 

Extras

We offer additional options to make your stationery unique. 

Hand Torn Edging: A great option to give your cards a unique look.

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

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.
