What is the difference between Paper & DIY invitations?
Paper invitations are designed and printed by us!  We work with you to create your invite, then we print it and mail everything to you.
DIY (Do It Yourself) are digital files you either print yourself or take to a printing service.  They’re customized for you and sent directly via email.

 

Could you draw or design something original if I don’t find a perfect design on here?
Of course!  Custom artwork begins at $50 – Contact with specifics.  Just be sure to allow sufficient time for me to draw or design something up for you.  Typical artwork time adds an additional week to 10 days of production.
Please note all artwork commissioned remains property of it’s respective artists and is for personal use only. It may not be reproduced for any other reasons without written consent from the Artist(s).

 

How does this work?

Custom invites printed by us:  You choose your design and send us your wording!  We send you a proof* so you are sure it’s perfect before it goes to print.  In about a week your invitations are printed and shipped to you.  Turn-around time may vary by order.

Custom invites printed by you!  You choose your design and send us your wording!  We send you a proof* so you are sure it’s perfect.  Once you OK it, we send you a final file that’s ready to print as soon as you are.  We typically design PDF files so that several items print on one page.  We can put together different file types as well, just let us know before ordering!

*proofs = see below

 

What is a proof?
A proof is a digital version of your final printed product sent via email.
I include proofs with every custom order to ensure that all spelling and information are 100% correct before we go to print.  It’s an awful thing to see a beautiful invite gone to waste because of a missing number or the misspelling of the groom’s name – trust me, I’ve seen it.

 

How long does it take?
Once you’ve placed an order, you’ll usually receive your first set of proofs within 24 hours (weekdays) or 48 hours (weekends).

Items printed by Us: Typically, it takes about 2 weeks from the day you order until the day you hold your invite in hand.

DIY printing items:  Typical time starts at 3 business days.  Rush jobs available for additional fee.
