THE SEMI CUSTOM GUIDE

*please note this page is best viewed on a desktop format

Our wedding invitation guide has been set up to help you understand our semi-custom collections and the process of building your suite. We recommend referring back to this guide when purchasing your suite and filling out your information.


THE PROCESS

1.SELECT YOUR SUITES PIECES

Our semi-custom collections were designed to allow you the freedom to pick and choose a suite that is perfect for your wedding. You can mix and match suites as well as add on embellishments to really enhance your suite. The semi-custom collections also allow you to pick your printing method, paper and ink colors.

2.PLACE YOUR ORDER

Add each piece you have chosen to your cart and purchase all together. You do not need to worry about your suite customizations at this point. After we receive your order we will send you an email within one business day that will provide you with a link and password to send over all of your personal wedding information. This link will also be used to send over all of your proofing later in the process.

3.PROOFING

Once we receive your complete form back the proofing process will begin. We require all of your wedding information including guest addresses (if applicable) in order to start the process. First proofs will be sent to you within five business days. Once we send your initial proofs you will get three complimentary editing rounds to your order. Additional edits can be made for a fee.

4.PRODUCTION AND ASSEMEBLY

After we receive proof approval we will send your pieces to production! Production times can vary based on printing method and embellishments, If you are purchasing an assembly package we will begin assembly once all pieces are finished in production. Once ready to ship you will receive confirmation with tracking.

There will be a form where you can fill in all of your information as well as view your proofs.

Production Approval

Please be aware that once we receive proof approval no changes can be made to your suite. This includes wording, envelope colors etc. We highly recommend sharing your proofs with friends & family to have a fresh pair of eyes check for any errors.

Design Aspects

When purchasing a semi-custom suite all design aspects must remain intact. The design you see will simply be changed to your information. For example no borders, monograms or wreaths can be added to a design that does not already have it. If you are interested in combining suites please reach out before your purchase is made. (the only exception is response cards which can have meal selections etc added.)

Return & Cancellation Policy

Because of the customization of our products we do not offer returns, cancellations or exchanges on any products.

Refunds Due to Error

If there is an error on the invitation due to customer fault there is nothing we can do. Regardless of how the error occurred it is the clients responsibility to check all proofs for errors. Once we receive approval there is nothing we can do however we do offer discounted reprints for these mistakes.

If there is an error to your invitation that has been caused by us we offer complimentary reprints free of charge!



tips

  1. When placing your order make sure to order a few extra sets. You will want extras to be framed as well as to have your photographer take photos. Additionally it is very costly to have to come back and print a small batch.

(Please note the minimum order for letterpress is 50 even for small batches)

2. When filling out your excel form for guest addressing make sure to type it out exactly as you would like it to appear.

Ex. Typing out North Carolina vs using the abbreviation NC

3. If you are extending a guest seat to someone that you are intending for a specific significant other make sure to address it as such.

Ex. Using Mr. Grant Parker & Guest

vs.

Mr. Grant Parker and Ms. Lily Black
