Can I print extra invitations later?
Yes, but printing a smaller amount is more costly per piece than your initial order will be. We recommend ordering at least 10 to 15 extra sets with your initial order to cover any last-minute additions and to have a few keepsakes.
How are my invitations printed?
Our watercolor invitations are printed with a professional, high-quality digital printer. For custom orders, we can also offer letterpress printing or foil stamping.
Can I print on the backs?
Yes, we can print on the back of your invitation or insert cards. This adds 15% to the cost for each piece.
How long does printing take?
Please allow 7 business days for printing & finishing. For specialty printing, such as letterpress or foil-stamping, please allow 3 weeks.
Will I see a printed proof of my invitation?
Invitations are printed exactly as they appear on your digital PDF proof. We can offer a printed proof for a $25.00 fee. You can also order a sample of any design first to see it in person.
What kind of paper do you use?
Our invitations are printed on a luxe cotton tree-free paper stock. Cotton stock has a matte finish and enhances the watercolor texture.
COLORS & TYPOGRAPHY
Can colors be customized?
Yes. See swatches provided in each invitation listing for available type colors. Watercolor hues can also be customized; for some designs, this requires an additional cost. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Will my printed invitations match the colors I see on screen?
We try to match the colors shown on our site as closely as possible. However, monitor color is variable and we cannot guarantee an exact match. You can order a sample of the invitation you like to see the colors in person.
Can I change the type style on the invitation I’ve selected?
Sure! You can use any of the type styles shown on our other invitations. We’re happy to mix and match to give you the result you desire.
Can the invitation wording be in a foreign language?
Yes! We’ve done invitations in Japanese, French, Greek and more. Contact us prior to ordering for assistance.

Your invitations will arrive ready for assembly. We may be able to assemble your invitations for an additional fee; please ask for details.
Envelope liners may be ordered assembled into envelopes, or for a lower cost, unassembled. If you order liners unassembled, we will provide assembly instructions.
How much postage do I need?
We recommend taking one complete invitation suite with envelopes to the post office for weighing. They will tell you exactly how much postage is needed. Be sure to ask for the international postage cost as well if needed.
Can I cancel my order after it’s approved?
