How long before my wedding should I order my invitations?
We require a minimum of 16 weeks to design, assemble and ship your invitations, so count back 16 weeks from the date you would like to mail your invitations. Once a design is finalized we can send your envelopes ahead of time so that they can be calligraphied. Unfortunately we can not accept rush orders. It is never too early to get started, so contact us today!

What type of printing do you offer? Do you require a minimum order?
We offer engraving, letterpress, thermography, and flat printing. There is a minimum order requirement of 100 invitations for engraving, letterpress and thermography printing. If you need fewer than 100 invitations, we offer the option of flat printing, which allows you to order the exact number that you need, or you can pay a printing surcharge for an order of 50 or 75 thermography, engraving or letterpress invitations.

How much do custom invitation designs cost?
Basic packages start at $4.25 per invitation. Full assembly thermography holder packages start at $9.75 per invitation. Please complete our custom inquiry form and we will create a customized pricing estimate for your specific project.

What if I just want to commission a design and have it printed on my own?
We do offer a commission arrangement that includes our design services only. We provide your final designs in the appropriate print-ready format on a CD-ROM. Please complete our custom inquiry form for pricing.

What if I want to assemble the invitations myself?
Self assembly is a very popular option among our clients. If you choose to assemble the invitations into the holders yourself (with all of the pre-cut materials sent to you with your printed invitations and enclosures), the pricing will be lower than for full assembly. Self assembly holder packages start at $5.75. Please complete our custom inquiry form for specific pricing.
