How long before getting married should I order my stationery?
The ordering process from start to finish usually takes between 21-28 days. Therefore we advise you order your invitations 4/6 months before your big day. This will ensure you have enough time to confirm guest numbers if you then wish to order 2nd phase products from us (name tags, table plan etc).
How many invitations should I order?
Remember to add up your invitations per couple/family, rather than per guest. We also always advise ordering at least 5 extra invitations, as this will allow for any mistakes or if you need to invite other guests at the last minute.

For personalised items, unfortunately not. All items are specifically designed and personalised for you. It is your responsibility to check the design proof for the layout, information, wording and spelling.
However rest assured, that we will not go to print until we have had your approval that you are 100% happy, changes can be made at the proofing stage.
For non personalised items such as our ready to write invitations or save the dates, we do offer a refund policy, which is items need to be returned in their original form and within 7 days of receipt. Once we receive the items we will request your details so a refund can be issued. Unfortunately we cannot cover the delivery costs of returns.

Yes, however for our gold foil samples there is a small charge of £5.00 per non personalised invitation.
Can I get a sample of the whole collection?
The sample service is to allow you to check the quality of the print and paper so we are unable to send the whole collection as part of this service. If you have a specific item you wish to see from the collection, mention it in and we will always do our best to get that to you – but it depends on what we have in stock at the time.
My final order is a slightly different shade of colour to my initial sample?
Due to the nature of digital printing, there may sometimes be very slight inconsistencies with colour – especially when batches are printed at different times.
