STEP ONE: PERUSE
Take a wander through our semi-custom collection page and find the one that makes your heart sing. View our extensive customisation and embellishment options – colours, paper stocks, print methods, envelope addressing, wax seals – to suit your own wedding theme, style and budget. None of our designs take your fancy? Not to worry, you are welcome to bring your own design or we can create something extra special, just for you.
Have a think about how many cards you are needing. A three piece suite – main invitation, RSVP and gift cards – are the most popular package – but additional cards for venue details, maps or day after cards may be required.
STEP TWO: CONTACT
Send us an email or contact us through our enquire page and we can start working up a quote for you. Rather than a systematic online ordering process, we believe in a personal approach and will work with you and your budget to produce something beautiful. This offers much more flexibility for you and allows us to make some considered recommendations along the way.
STEP THREE: CONFIRMATION
Once you are happy with your quote, we just need a 50% deposit and all your wedding details to get started.
STEP FOUR: DESIGN
Now the fun begins with bringing your vision to life. Depending on complexity of design or degree of personalisation, you will generally see a design proof from us 2-4 days after confirmation. You will receive proofs and a full visual mock up via email. Here is your chance to make changes, see different options or colour combinations. We don’t put a cap on the amount of changes you can make either – it takes as many as it takes to get juuuuuuusst right.
STEP FIVE: PRODUCTION
It’s our favourite time! If letterpress printing, we get busy with polymer plates, ink and a ker’klunking vintage press.
If not, we send it out to our trusted network of talented local printers and foilers (no offshore companies here).
Digital print takes around 5-8 days (plus shipping), letterpress and foil is generally 12-15 (plus shipping) as it does take extra time to produce the printing plates. If you are needing your order super urgently, we can discuss your options at the start of the design process.
STEP SIX: DELIVERY
We carefully check each piece and lovingly wrap and package your invitations ready for the journey to you. We use recycled cardboard boxes to package your goods and FSC tissue paper. For the sake of the environment, we don’t buy bubble wrap. But if we happen to have some lying around from a past Amazon or other online delivery, I will pad your box with some extra re-used bubbly protection, depending on how far it has to travel and how treacherous the adventure it has ahead.
Depending on where you are located, we use a combination of Sendle, Star Track, Couriers Please and Australia Post to send our goods out. Delivery times vary – but generally 1-3 days depending on metro/regional networks. You are also welcome to pick up from us.
