F . A . Q S
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 2-3 months before you would like you invitations to be sent out.
How long does the printing process take?
If you have ordered the customisable invitations, from ordering to delivery will take around 4 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.
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 in 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.
Can I change aspects of the customisable designs?
You can change the font colour and style for a fee of £40.
If you would like to alter these designs beyond the font, i.e changing the design colour, layout or adding bespoke elements such as a monogram, map or any illustration this would become a semi-customisable design
by choosing a semi-customisable package. This is £125 and I can alter parts of the design, add extras or if you would like a different print finish (for example letterpress or foiling.
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 small quantity please get in touch, as the prices on my customisable designs are based on orders for 35 or more.
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.
