When should I start designing my stationery?
Now! We encourage you to start as soon as possible on your wedding or event stationery. Generally our custom
wedding invitation designs take 2-4 weeks to design and a minimum of 2 weeks for printing and assembly depending on complexity of your chosen design. Simpler party invitations take approximately 2 weeks to design and print. When thinking about timing, consider your mail date and RSVP date in relation to your event date.


How much does it cost?
Because all of our work is custom, our pricing is also custom and is handled on an individual basis.
Our custom wedding invitation packages (invitation, envelope, reply card, reply envelope/postcard, and information insert) start at $7.00 each invite suite for flat printing and (based on an order of 100 invitation packages).
Party invitations, Save-the-date cards, birth announcements, and other event stationery start at $4.00 each invite suite for a quantity of 50.

Yes, of course. We Specialize in custom design but are also happy to coordinate templated designs with options available from Carlsoncraft, Envelopments, and Do It More with Options.



If I choose a custom invitation, what are my options for color, paper type, ink and fonts? What is the word limit for the text?
