any Questions?


Do i need to send save the dates?

You don't have to send out save the dates, I would only say the are necessary if you need to give your guests plenty of notice. For example if you are having a destination wedding, or getting married in peak summer season as it could be worth considering guests holiday plans and whether they could be invited to other weddings.

If you do send them I suggest 8-10 months before the wedding date, or at least 12 months for a destination wedding.

How far in advance should i order my invitations?

The formal invitations can be sent out around 4-6 months before the wedding, this gives enough time for all the rsvp’s to returned so you can have confirmed numbers for the rest of your planning.

You should consider the design and printing timescales as well so I recommend getting in touch at least 3-4 months before you would like you invitations to be sent out.

With on the day stationery I recommend getting in touch around 3-4 months before your wedding date.

How long does the printing process take?

If you have ordered semi-customisable invitations, the process usually takes around 6-8 weeks. If you have ordered a bespoke invitation design, the whole process from start to finish including print and delivery will be between 8-12 weeks or more depending on the quantity of

illustration work required.

Do you offer other printng methods?

I can offer hot foil and debossing/embossing but only with orders of 50 units or more. I can also provide digital foil and white ink printing. Get in touch via my contact form for an estimate.


Can i see my order before it’s printed?

You will receive up to 3 drafts and a final digital proof of all stationery items before they are printed. It is vital that you check and confirm all of the wording and spelling before they go to print.
I can offer samples of your design for £3 per item + p&p.

what personalised illustrations do you offer?

I am happy to illustrate pretty much anything to personalise your invitations! Common requests are venue illustrations, pets and maps, I can also provide bespoke illustrations for table names, previous examples include champagne bottles and cocktails. All personalised illustrations are quoted on an individual basis depending on the scope.

What is the difference between hot foil and digital foil?

Hot foil is where a plate is created specifically for your invitation and this is used to stamp the foil into the paper so it also leaves a textured impression. You have more paper stock options and the foil is available in a wide range of colours.
Digital foiling is where the foil adheres to ink on a printing press so the foil sits on the paper. The effect is much a shinier, reflective finish. You have to use a much smoother paper stock and the foil is available in fewer metallic colours. Digital foil is much more budget friendly however, due to the simpler process.

Do you have a minimum order?

The minimum order is 35 units, if you want a price for a smaller quantity please get in touch.

Do you ship internationally?

I do accept international orders. The same as mainland UK orders the delivery price will vary depending on weight and size. Remember if you are ordering from outside the UK delivery times can take longer due to customs processes.
