FAQ

Do you have Tiffany Blue Wedding Invitations?

The closest match to Tiffany Blue is the color Lagoon from the Stardream Metallics Color Line. Any of our invitations can be made in this color.

Do pocket invitations require additional postage?

 Only if you exceed the 1 ounce post office limit for a letter stamp. Pocket invitations can become heavy if you have a lot of inserts so ask your stationer to weigh them for you for an estimate of whether you will go over 1 ounce or not. Remember to always have your invitations weighed at the post office before you buy your postage and stamp your invitations. If you incorrectly stamp them they will either come back to you or be held at the recipient’s post office until they come and pay the unpaid postage.

Why do you charge a fee for re-printing invitations?

The reason we have to charge a fee for re-printing invitations is because of the time and effort it takes to process your order. There is a lot of overhead that goes into creating your invitations such as cutting your card stock and envelope liners, setting up print jobs, test printing, assembling the invitations, packaging the invitations and getting them shipped out to you. Most of the overhead involved in making your invitations is the same whether we make one invitation or a few hundred. The best way to minimize your costs is to order the correct amount of invitations and envelopes the 1st time around. We recommend you order 5% more invitations than you need and 10% more envelopes than you need. The extra envelopes will come in handy when you are addressing your envelopes and make mistakes.

Note: We do not require that you order your invitations in multiples of 25 so 10% is actually 10%.

 

Do I have to address my own envelopes?

We offer guest list printing service if you would prefer not to hand address your envelopes. We will provide you with a Microsoft excel spread sheet to enter your guest list information into and we will print your envelopes from that.

Traditional etiquette says that you should hand address your envelopes or have a calligrapher address them for you but many modern brides are opting to have their guests addresses printed on their envelopes. You can use one or more colors and fonts that match your invitations for a perfectly coordinated ensemble.

When should I send out my invitations?

You should send out your invitations 6 – 8 weeks before the wedding. If you have a lot of out of town guests opt closer to 8 weeks to give your guests enough time to plan their trip and to get the best travel rates.

Do I need order from every category on the DIY Kit page?

Other extras are also offered on the order page such as supplies to line your envelopes, reception cards, map cards, belly bands, etc.

We don’t include adhesive in our packages because lots of our customers already have their favorite paper crafting adhesives at home and we don’t want you to have to pay for something you already have. If you don’t already have a favorite, we recommend using the Xyron Tape runner to assemble our invitations. We’ve found this tape runner to be the easiest to use.

Can I use my own adhesive to assemble my kit?
Certainly! You can use your own adhesive to assemble our kits. We do however recommend that you try assembling one invitation as a test to make sure that your adhesive will work. We don't recommend using any spray adhesives or liquid adhesives with our products since they tend to warp cover stock papers. We prefer double sided tape products for assembling our invitations.

Do your kits come with print templates?
All of our kits come with print templates and instructions however we cannot guarantee that all printers will print the best quality invitations. We recommend that you order a sample kit if you are unsure about printing on your printer. If you find that your printer doesn't print to your standards, we can print your invitations for you for an additional fee. You will still assemble your invitations but the printing will be taken care of for you. We can print your invitations using flat print, thermography (raised print) or letterpress printing processes. For more information on this option please contact us via email or phone since you currently cannot order printing online.
