Frequently asked questions
For event stationery we suggest you take into account the lead time required for your event and work backwards from there, for example a week or two prior to when your caterers/venue require final numbers is a good guide for your RSVP date.
We suggest contacting us 4-6 months prior to your wedding date, as we can book out. To explain the long lead time: wedding invitations are usually sent 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding date. At a minimum it is best to allow 3-6 weeks for the design process (a Collection based design is generally quicker to turn around in under 3 weeks, however a complete custom design may take up to 6 weeks), we then require 4-5 weeks for printing.
But the sooner you contact us the better, good things take time, so the more time allowable the happier you will be with the final product.
Definitely! Just send us a swatch of the fabric (or whatever it may be, we have even colour matched to straws) and we will get back to you with a suggestion for colours.
Of course, invitation wording can be very confusing: traditional, modern, relaxed, formal. There are so many options to consider. Let us make it easy for you.
The letterpress process does not lend itself to individualised invitations, although it can be done it tends to be cost prohibitive for most budgets. However, flat printing guest names can be possible on some stocks if this is an option you have your heart set on. Another option is belly bands or name tags wrapped around your invitation. Talk to us about it during the briefing process.
Each order is unique, so we like to ensure that we quote on only the things you require. Contact us today and we can give you a comprehensive and itemised estimate to suit your requirements.
Unfortunately we do not allow studio visits and deal with 99% of our clients via emails and phone calls. If you feel the need to meet in person please discuss this with us to see if we can arrange a meeting.
Most definitely. You can find detailed specifications here.
Although we realise letterpress can be a more expensive option there are ways to keep costs down, for example printing in a single colour, using coloured envelopes or liners to add interest and colour. There are a number of options, ask us for more ideas when you contact us for a quote.
It can all depend upon your choice of stock and whether you are looking for a traditional ‘kiss’ impression or a ‘deep’ impression. A deep impression will cause show through on the opposite side on thinner stocks. A heavy weight stock is best for this option, however a deep impression on both sides is not recommended.
We understand that sometimes emergencies occur and we can offer a faster turnaround, however it is subject to availability within our studio schedule may incur an additional ‘rush’ fee.
