There is a minimum order of 25 pieces for wedding stationery due to the time involved in creating artwork and printer minimum quantities. It is advisable, when determining quantities, to factor in extras for handwritten errors, or changes to your guest list. Remember you don’t need one invitation per person, only one per household.
Please allow plenty of time for your wedding stationery. It is advised to send out the invitations 3-6 months before the wedding date. Once you have placed your order and finalised the design, the printing and finishing can take up to ten working days to be completed. For Existing Designs, please allow 1-2 weeks for design work. For Bespoke Designs please allow 4-6 weeks for design work.
