FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When do I need to get in touch to book design time?


3 months in advance of when you wish to start any project at least is advised as design slots get booked in advance. I am a one woman band and therefore, do the admin, drawing, designing, ordering, packaging etc. So, it can be hard to meet tight deadlines if you don’t get in touch early enough - 3 months ahead is ideal so that it can give us both enough time to create the perfect invitations.




How early do I need to send out my invitations


Traditionally invitations are sent 3-6 months before your wedding to guests. So allow at least 3 months before that for design time.




How long does the whole wedding invite process take?


It can take anywhere from 6-8 weeks depending on detail and work involved for bespoke invitations and anywhere from 2-4 weeks for the studio collection invitations – click HERE for a break down of the process.




Do you create any other wedding stationery?


Yes, we do! We can create anything you need for your on the day stationery needs. From seating charts to name place cards. You name it! If you have got your invitations ready and are now looking at all the other finer details, please don't leave it to too late. Ideally get in touch 6-8 weeks before your big day and get your other items booked in for design time and ordered.




What is foiling?


Foiling is a technique whereby a thin film of metallic or foil is impressed onto a document using a die (or stamp). It creates an elegant and eye-catching shiny metalic effect that simply cannot be replicated using standard printing.




Which is the most cost effective option if my budget doesn’t allow for specialised finishes?


If you have multiple events and are not inviting every guest to all the events, I would recommend a belly band invitation. The belly band will keep all the inserts together still look elegant and with colour print only this also keeps costs down. Alternatively, I would recommend a 'z folded' invite – it’s one item that can still fit a fair amount of information on and again with colour print this will surely keep your costs to a minimum.




How much deposit do you take?


I usually take a 20% deposit before I begin any design work. A further 30% is taken once the artwork has been approved and is ready to be sent to print. The remainder of the balance is paid on delivery.




Do you offer a postage service?


We are based in North London so if you would like to collect your invitations from us we are happy for you to do so. However, we do offer a postage service. All orders are sent signed for and tracked. Postage fees will vary as each order has different specifications. You will be given an estimation of the cost to start and will be billed accordingly with the final payment.
