When deciding on your wedding stationery you will probably have a few questions you want to ask your stationer about their process, timings and costs. To help answer some of those queries we have pulled together our top ten most frequently asked questions and answered them for you, hopefully helping to clarify a few things.
Of course if your question isn’t answered below, please feel free to get in touch with us so we can try and help!
Our Top Ten Questions
When should I send my invites?
This question is one the majority of people want answering, so we decided to write a full blog post on ‘Your Wedding Stationery timings’ which will hopefully put your mind at ease. Generally we advise you send your invitations out around 6-8 months before your wedding date, this gives your guests enough time to reply and plan to make sure they can attend your big day! It also gives you the time you need to arrange any final details especially the all important on the day stationery
Do I need a save the date?
If you have confirmed your venue and date, but the wedding is more than a year in advance then we recommend sending out save the dates just to make sure everyone you want to be there, can be. If your wedding, however, is less than a year away, you may opt to skip the Save The Dates and send out your invitations straight away. It’s entirely up to you and don’t be afraid to skip them if you don’t feel you need them!
Can I change the colour on a design?
Yes of course! You can take any of our designs as they are, or we are more than happy to help customise the design to you by matching colour schemes at no extra cost.
Can you print foil?
Yes we can- and it’s affordable! We are now able to offer foiling on any of your wedding stationery from an additional £1 per side. You can read more about our foiling here.
What are your minimum quantities?
We have a minimum order of 25 for our items (with the exception of the seating/table plan/table names or numbers). This is so we can cater for both intimate and bigger weddings.
Can I customise the wording?
Yes no problem, everyone’s situation and wedding is different which is why we think it is important you can tailor your wording to suit you. We do have some popular wording options available to help if you need a little guidance on what to write! Why not have a read of our blog post on ‘Your Wedding Stationery Wording’?
Can I see a visual of my invite before it gets printed?
Definitely! We always send a visual pdf on email of your design to you for approval before we send anything to print – we want to make sure you are 100% happy with everything before you full order is printed.
What is your turnaround time?
In general the whole process, from enquiry to receiving your stationery, usually takes 3-4 weeks (working to your time scale). We aim to dispatch your order within 10 working days from receipt of your final approval.
Do I have to order online?
How much do bespoke designs cost?
If you like one of our bespoke designs already created and would only like minor changes, we would only charge £25 for the design of the stationery. If, however, you would like a brand new design, fully bespoke to yourself we would usually charge around £50-£75 for the new design set up fee.
