How It Works
HOW IT WORKS: Welcome to the Collections Shoppe! Some brides want to customize their wedding suites from scratch (see Custom Made) while others want to carefully personalize a ReadyMade design. If you fall into the ReadyMade design category this Shoppe is for you!
The first impressions of your wedding are determined by the printed pieces your guests receive. We believe the save the dates and invitations set the tone for your event, and therefore are a very special part of your planning.
STEP 1. Choose a design. We have many delicious designs to choose from, so take your time and enjoy.
STEP 2. Personalize your information. This includes selecting the quantity, paper color, ink options, and providing any additional details we may need in the info Information and Personalization box.
STEP 3. Order.
Once we receive your order, we will personalize your design with the supplied information and send out a digital PDF proof for your approval within 3 business days of placing your order. Once the digital proof is approved, your print production process will begin. Since Letterpress is an old fashion, beautiful form of printing, it can take anywhere from 3-6 weeks for you to receive your order. Please allow yourself this time in your planning process.
WORDING PERSONALIZATION: The wording of your invitation reflects your personality, style of wedding and family preference. You can personalize any of our designs to say anything you’d like to say, however you’d like to say it. Please let us know what it is by entering it into the Information and Personalization box. Additionally, make sure that you give us the wording you’d like to see in the correct order, from top to bottom. If you are lost and looking for a little guidance, we recommend checking out The Knot’s Wedding Invitation Wording Samples. Please be aware that when adding or deleting copy from the original design that the design will change some to accommodate your needs. You will be shown a proof of the adjustments before any piece is printed.
COLOR PERSONALIZATION: The unique color palette for your wedding can be reflected in your stationery. We offer the option to change the existing colors depicted in the original artwork to a 1 or 2-color option of your choice. We’ve provided a color chart that has a pre-selected wide range of colors for you to choose from. If for some reason you do not see your wedding color on the chart, we are happy to match your custom color for an additional fee of $25. The best way to provide us with your custom colors is by PANTONE® number from a Solid Uncoated Guide. We realize that not everyone has access to these books, so you can visit the Pantone site to review colors online.
Alternately you can provide us with your custom colors via email or from a swatch or inspiration. Then from there we can send you a digital color proof for your final approval. Please note, colors vary between monitors and printers so we cannot guarantee any color viewed on screen will match exactly to a printed version.
Or if you prefer to see the actual color swatch, you can order 5 swatches of your choice for an additional fee of $5.
DESIGN CHANGES: We want the design of your wedding stationery to be perfect. Small edits to the placement of design elements and typography are free. However, some alterations can drastically change the layout of a design therefore requiring a greater deal of work for our designers. These types of changes can still be made, but require an additional fee of $25 service fee per revision.
REVISIONS: With your proof you’re allotted three free rounds of revisions. Any additional revisions will incur a $25 service fee per revision. The first 3 revisions are included in the original timeline. If there are any additional revisions needed, it will affect the final timeline by one week per revision.
PAPER & PRINTING: It all comes together!
Letterpress: We love letterpress! It’s the oldest form of printing where ink is applied to raised plates, which is then pressed into thick beautiful paper leaving an impression. It’s looks and feels beautiful!
Digital: We currently do not offer digital printing, but plan on adding this service in the future.
Paper: We offer a luxurious heavyweight matte cover stock in either white or off-white. Please see our color guide for reference or request a paper sample.
