If you are hoping to place an order, it can be helpful to bring in your invitation wording, as well as an idea as to the quantity of invitations you are after.
If it isn’t possible for you to visit us in store, we are more than happy to complete the entire order process online!

That depends on how many guests you would like to invite. When working on the number of invitations you need, remember to count invitations rather than actual guests. An event with 120 guests may only require 65 invitations.
As a general guide, include one invitation for each of the following:
- Couples (married or living together)
- A family (including children under 18)
- Single guests
In addition, our advice is to allow between 5 and 10 extra invitations. This helps to avoid the extra charges involved with changing numbers or coming back to order reprints.
This depends on what you want to spend and a number of factors including ;
- Design style
- Quantity of invitations required
- The ‘Add Ons’ if required – for example RSVP, Wishing Well, Map, Information Card etc
We would therefore prefer to chat to you regarding your options and a price.
Our Customised Invitation turnaround time is 14 to 21 working days. This is from the date you place your order with your final quantity, wording and deposit.
We do however offer an Express (ASAP) service which includes 7 working days. A small surcharge is applied to push your order to the top of the production line.
Yes we do! We can customize any of our designs to suit you. Alternatively, you can show us what you have in mind and we can create a completely new design!
A proof of each item will be emailed to you to check carefully. If your invitation is in colour you will be asked to come into the store and see a proof. Alternatively, we will post you a proof. This ensures that you’ll know exactly what to expect when you collect your completed stationery. Printing will only commence once you have viewed and approved your printed proof. If you are ordering invitations from our Quick & Easy range you will receive an email proof only.
Wedding invitations are traditionally posted 2 to 3 months before the wedding. For weddings, we do always recommend that you set your RSVP date at least 6 weeks before the wedding. This will allow time to order your menus, place cards and other reception stationery in plenty of time prior to the big day.
Yes, we can customise your Invitation Stationery by printing individual guest names. If you would like to include this option please contact us at email@example.com, and a spreadsheet will be sent to you to complete. We highly recommend printed guest names for larger events – 80-100 guests. This ensures that the names printed on your invitations are the guests who are actually invited, for example, Jane, Sam and family OR Jane & Sam. Your spare/extra invites can be printed with a line or left blank for you to fill in the guest names at a later stage.
Yes we can! If you decide to go ahead with this service we will email a spreadsheet for you to complete. Simply complete with your names and addresses, ensuring that you have thoroughly checked the details are correct, and leave the rest to us. View our Envelope Inspiration pinterest board for some beautiful ideas!

Not at all. You can order as many or as few invitations as you like. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote or to place your order. Alternatively come in to store, we’d love to meet you!
No you don’t. We recommend that you only order what you require. Therefore, if invitations is all you need, then invitations is all you order! There is a variety of different design and price options for the additional items. They depend on the style you prefer. You are more than welcome to mix and match ideas from different design sets. For example, an RSVP can be designed as a double sided post card with return address or as an RSVP with a envelope.
Absolutely! Our designs are simply ideas to give you a starting point for your stationery. You can mix and match both fonts and colours as you please.
Yes, we do!
If you’re short on time or don’t feel confident to assemble the stationery yourself, we have all the necessary expertise in this field. This applies to any designs, in both the Handmade and Graphic Design range that require assembly.
Our work is of an extremely high standard. Above all, we are always excited and proud to hand over your beautifully completed box of Invitation Stationery! All you’ll have to do is to put your stationery into envelopes, address, stamp and post!
The next step is to request a quote. To do this we need to know how many Invitations, and other items, for example, RSVP, Wishing Well/Gifts card and/or Details/Information card you require. Please remember to include singles, couples and families – therefore 60 invitations equates to approximately 120 guests. When you are happy with the quote, all you need to do is place your order with the quantity required and a deposit.
