What is the semi-custom wedding invitation process?

Once you have submitted your wedding invitation suite order on our online shop. We will create a proof for you in your desired ink color. You will receive an emailed proof within 5 business days. You will have one round of complimentary revisions if needed. Each additional revision will incur a revision fee that will be invoiced separately. After everything has been made perfect you will then approve your designs and at this point, your order will be sent into production and no further changes can be made. For this reason, it is very important to review your proofs so we can make sure everything is as it should be.

Now for the exciting part! Once your order is ready, we will contact you to schedule local pick up or notify you that your order has shipped.

Since every order is made custom, production times vary depending on your order details. Most semi-custom wedding invitation suites are ready within 2-4 weeks.

How soon should I place my order if I am ordering custom invitations?

It’s never too early to start! We prefer a longer timeline for
custom invitations so that we can graciously help you along the way without the stress of a tight timeline. We prefer at least 4-6 months prior to the wedding. Depending on your printing method, we prefer longer! Most of our custom brides begin working with us one year in advance.

If you are worried about your timeline, please reach out to us and we can discuss in detail!

What is the difference between single envelopes and double (inner/outer) envelopes?

If you choose to go with a single envelope, this envelope will have your return address on the back flap. Your invitation would go directly inside this envelope. You will place the postage stamp on the front of this envelope, along with the guest’s name and address.  

If you choose to have double envelopes. This would consist of an inner and an outer envelope.

The inner envelope would hold the invitation suite and be ungummed. On this envelope you would specify who is invited to the wedding. The inner envelope is a great place to specify children’s names if invited! If you will be having an adult only affair, you will leave off children's names on the inner envelope.

The outer envelope would have your return address on the back flap. You would place the stamp on the front of this envelope, along with the guest's name and address.

Do you rush orders?

We currently do not offer rush orders. If you are worried about your timeline, don’t hesitate to inquire to see if we are able to create them in time for when you plan to mail out. Fill out our custom form and we will be happy to reply back with a timeframe of production.

How many invitations should I order? 

You will want to base your quantity from the number of households vs. amount of people you are inviting. We suggest organizing an excel spreadsheet with your guest names and addresses. You will then see how many households need an invitation and base your quantity off that. Our invitations come in increments of 25. (Ex: You have 111 on your guest list, you would want to order 125.)
