Samples

I recommend purchasing a sample of the invitation design you are interested in before placing an order. This gives you an opportunity to see the quality of the product in person. Samples are not customized, you will receive the invitation as pictured. Sample swatches of cardstock are also available. Contact me or go to my Online Etsy Shop to purchase.

When to order

From the time you place your order to the time you have your invitations in hand is usually about 4-6 weeks. Since you will want to mail your invitations 6-8 weeks prior to your event, I suggest ordering your invitations approximately 4 months before your wedding date.

Quantity of Invitations

I suggest ordering at least 10% more than you think you'll need. This needs to be done at the initial invitation order. Once an order has been completed, additional invitations will be produced at a minimum of 25 and in increments of 10.

Address printing

Digital address printing is available for your envelopes. I will send you an example of how I need the Guest address list formatted in a Word doc.

Return address printed on Reply envelopes .50 each

Return address printed on Back flap of Outer envelopes .50 each

Guest address printing $1.00 each

Digital Proofs

I will send digital proofs as a PDF for your review. Two complimentary revisions are included, each additional revision will incur a $25.00 fee. Please send changes in one email, in a list format.

I do NOT proof read. This is solely your responsibility. I can't stress enough how important it is for you to carefully review the digital proof for accuracy before approving. Embellished Paperie is not responsible for errors in spelling, grammar, and/or mistakes overlooked by the client during the proofing process. I suggest having friends and family review the proof as well.

Once approval is given, Embellished Paperie waives responsibility for any errors including typesetting, format, grammar, spelling, punctuation or otherwise. If you should choose to reprint after final approval is given, you will be responsible for all costs of production and printing.

Lead time

Each order is unique and different from the next and requires individualized attention. Most Custom Invitation orders are completed 3-4 weeks from the date the digital proof is approved. Large orders require 4-6 weeks. Reception stationery typically takes 3 weeks.

**RUSH Orders are accepted as my schedule permits. The Fee is 25% of the Total Order.

Payment

I only accept PAYPAL as payment. Please note... you don’t need a Paypal account to pay with Paypal. You can use your credit card without signing up for a Paypal account.

Sales Tax Applicable to Arizona residents at 7.95%

Shipping

All orders are shipped United States Postal Service via Priority Mail, which ensures delivery in 2-3 business days. Once items have been accepted by the USPS for delivery, I am not responsible for lost, damaged, delayed, misdirected or undelivered items. It is your responsibility to request insurance for your items. Signature confirmation is available for an additional $2.00 per package.

Mailing your invitations

I suggest taking one completely assembled invitation set to your local post office, where they will weigh the envelope and let you know what postage will cost. Please don't assume, a lot of time and cost goes into your lovely invitations and you want them to arrive on time and as you intend.

While you're at the post office, ask if they will hand cancel your invitations (they will want to know how many you'll be sending). Hand canceling is the process by which the mailing is processed by hand, avoiding potential damage by bypassing the large processing machines the post office uses. Hand canceling minimizes the amount of stamping, bar codes, and other marks the post office automatically puts on mailings. The process also ensures your embellished invitations don't get caught, torn, or misshapen by the machines. Hand canceling may cost an additional fee, just depends on your local post office.

Return Policy

Due to the fact that all orders are customized and personalized, returns will not be allowed. Once your order is approved for print, it is solely your responsibility to ensure that all data contained within the printed materials is correct. In the event of cancellation, the 50% deposit will NOT be refunded, this initial payment is used to purchase supplies for your custom order. Please if you have concerns with your order or are unhappy...contact me. Customer service is important to me.
