Frequently Asked Questions
Please view the answers to some of our commonly asked questions below. Then if you still need help, feel free to contact us.
Can I order bridal shower or baby shower invitations?
Can you print custom designed invitations?
We do not print completely customized invitations at this time. However, our designs do allow for limited customizations, which you can learn about here. Please contact us if you have questions about how to customize one of our designs.
Will I be able to receive a proof for my invitation set?
Yes. We will email you a PDF proof for your invitation set. Once you have received your proof, you will need to contact us with your approval and complete your deposit before printing begins.
When should I order my invitations?
Invitations should be ordered at least three months prior to your event. This should allow enough time for printing, shipping and addressing. When sending your invitations, good wedding invitation etiquette says they should be mailed at least six weeks in advance to allow enough time for guests to respond.
How many invitations should I order?
We recommend ordering as many invitations as you think you will need plus some extras. When deciding how many to order, keep in mind that invitations are sold in quantities of 25 and not every guest will need an individual invitation. Whether you are addressing them yourself or are hiring a calligrapher, extra envelopes are included for any addressing mistakes there may be. We also recommend ordering extra invitations for last minute guest additions you may have.
Can I order less than the minimum quantity?
Yes, however pricing for less than the minimum will be the same. You may still consider ordering the minimum though in case you have any last-minute guest additions.
Can I order additional invitations?
Yes, though ordering extras initially is recommended. If your order has already been completed and you still need additional invitations, another separate order will need to be placed.
Can I still make changes to my order once you've received it?
Yes. After your order has been received, we will email you a proof, at which time you can make any necessary changes. Changes to your order can only be made at this time. You will then need to contact us with your approval and complete your deposit before we begin printing.
Can I get extra envelopes if I make a mistake addressing them?
Yes. We include 10% extra envelopes with every order just in case there are address mistakes.
How is sales tax determined?
Sales tax is charged on all orders shipped within Washington state. Tax is also charged on any applicable shipping costs.
What methods of payment do you accept and when do you require it?
When purchasing samples in our Etsy shop, you may pay with any form of payment that Etsy accepts (PayPal, credit/debit cards, etc). For larger invitation orders, we accept PayPal (no account is necessary), personal checks or money orders. Also, a deposit of 50% of your order total is required to begin printing with the remaining balance due upon completion.
What is your refund policy?
Due to the custom nature of printed materials, we are not able to give refunds for completed orders. However, you may request a refund of your initial deposit any time before giving final approval of your proof. Refunds are not given once we have received your deposit and approval.
When can I expect to receive my order?
Please allow at least 3 weeks from the time you complete your deposit and approve your proof to receive your completed order. If you need your invitations sooner, expedited service is also available for an additional 25% charge. See express shipping details below.
