Remember, when deciding how many sets you need, you count the number of households that you are sending invitations to, not the number of people being invited.

Turn Around Time


The standard turnaround time for invitations is 6 to 8 weeks. If specialty printing or items are added, additional time is needed. It is recommended that you start the ordering process at least 4 to 6 months prior to the mailing date to make sure there is plenty of time and to keep the process as stress free as possible.

White Glove Services

Addressing


If you don’t want to handwrite your guest names and addresses on the mailing envelopes, or write the return address over and over again, you can choose to have them printed on the envelopes. We can digitally print them to match the fonts and colors of the invitations. Prices are $1.00 each for front addressing and $0.25 each for return addressing. Foil and letterpress printing are also options for return addresses. If you choose this service, an excel sheet with formatting will be provided to you.




Calligraphy


If you would like handwritten calligraphy for your guest addresses, I am happy to provide options for local calligraphers or I can handle the calligraphy for a flat service fee.




Stuffing and Sealing


When you receive your invitations, if there are any backings or enclosures, the backings will be already adhered as part of our service. If you would like your cards stacked and stuffed into the envelopes and/or enclosures and sealed, that service can be added for $1.25/suite. If you choose this add-on service, we will require return postage be added on as well so it can be placed on your response envelopes before they are stuffed into the envelopes.




Postage

We can help you pick out the best postage for you or handle it for you all together.
