FAQS

As with all parts of your big day, you will want to know the details before committing to an order, so in this section we aim cover as many questions we think you may have when it comes to buying your wedding stationery. 

 

You’ll most likely find the answers in the section below of course, if it's not covered here, just drop us a message. 

.

When should we start to think about our Wedding Stationery?


Get in touch with us about a year before your date to ensure there we have availability. Our diary is open 2 years ahead and we only have a limited number of weddings we can take on each month. The most popular months can fill up over a year in advance. When booked into our diary, we require a £50.00 non refundable design fee to secure your date.




When should we send out our Wedding Stationery?


Save The Dates - Are sent out around 9-12 months before your big day.
However, if you are having a destination wedding we recommend sending these out even earlier 12-18 months before your date to give your guests plenty of notice for booking flights etc…
Day Invitations - Should be sent out 6 months prior to your date gives your guests plenty of notice about your day. We recommend asking for your RSVP replies back no later than 2 months before your date. Evening Invitations - We recommend seeing these out 6 months prior to your date after you have sent your day invitations. Sending your evening invitations out a month after your day gives you the opportunity to move an evening guest to a full day guest if you get any cancellations without making the guest feel like they are a second choice! On The Day Stationery - Once you have received all of your replies and have a finalised confirmed guest list we recommend organising your On the Day items of Stationery. Details for table plans and placenames MUST be made available to us no later than 6 weeks prior to the date of your wedding in order for us to guarantee we can design and manufacture in time. Thank you Cards - Once your day is over we recommend organising your thank you cards to go out about a month after your big day to thank you guests!




How many invitations do we need to buy?


We always recommend 1 per household with plus a few extra for any last minute additions or keepsakes, as reprinting small quantities is expensive.




How long will our stationery take to be delivered?


Once approved for printing. Your design takes approx 7 working days to arrive to us from the printer then a further 2 weeks to be cut, assembled and packaged and sent to you this can vary depending on how busy we are. We work on all orders in order of wedding date.




Can we order a sample?


As all of our designs are bespoke, we can’t offer any physical, hard copy samples of your design however we can offer a sample of an existing design to let you see the quality and finish of our products. These are available to purchase on our website, when ordering please not if there is a particular design you would like included and we will do our best to accommodate. In the design stage we will, however, send you a mock-up prior to printing your design so you can get an idea of how your invitations will look.




Do you offer Consultations?


Yes we do! We are available for Zoom Consultations Mon-Fri every evening between 6-8pm or on Saturdays & Sundays between 12-4pm. You can also use the book consultation button on our website homepage to book directly into our diary.




How much will our wedding stationery cost?


We are clear and transparent about our pricing and you can find all costs on our Price List. We offer six different invitation styles which allow us to cater for different budgets. If you have a budget contact us and we will be able to advise the best option for you.




Can you help us with wording our invitations?


Yes definitly! Writing the wording for your invites can be intimidating at first but we have created wording forms which have incredible helpful drop down sections which you fill in before the initial stages. We then use this a guide to create the perfect wording for your design.




Is there a minimum order?


No, we don’t have a minimum order. We aim to cater for all weddings regardless of size!




If revisions need to be made, will there be an extra fee for them?


We include three complimentary amends in the cost of our service. Additional amends will be charged at £50.00 per amend.




Can you add craft adornments such ribbon or jewels?


Our primary focus is the use of creative, modern digital design so unfortunately we don't offer this option.




Do you offer foiling?


Our primary focus is the use of creative, modern graphic digital design so unfortunately we don't offer this option.




Do you need to order all of our stationery in one go?


No! If you know all of your requirements we can provide a quotation for you so you have our expected price. However if you would prefer a separate quoation for each stage this isn't a problem either. It's completely up to yourself!




How do we pay?


When you book in we require £50.00 non-refundable design fee. This cost covers our admin time for creating your design mock ups for each stage of your order and secures your date in our diary. It is an additional cost on top of your order total not a deposit. After the design fee the once your approve the design for a section of your order for printing, payment is then required for that section of your order only.




Do you offer venue illustrations and does it cost more?


Recently we have had more requests for Venue illustrations for Invitations and Save the Dates. This is something we are able to offer, however we don’t do hand drawings they are sketches done via the computer so as long as we have a good picture reference which most of the big venues do then this isn’t a problem to create. Please check with us at the initial enquiry stage and we will advise if we can provide this type of design for your venue. Working this way eliminates the extra costs which other stationers charge for this kind of service.




Can we collect our order?


Yes, collection is available for our studio in Coatbridge if you prefer.




What does Bespoke Design mean?


All the designs we create are unique and personal to each couple, we don’t have standard collections as we aim to offer our skills as a design service rather than be a shop.




What if you we don't know what kind of design we want?


Book a consultation, our job is to listen to your ideas and help bring them to life! We have more than 10 years experience working with clients helping them to create unqiue and special designs.




How much does delivery cost?


All deliveries will be sent via Dpd Local Courier (for which your signature will be required, due to the bulky nature of the parcel and level of insurance required. All orders are sent via dpd local 2 day delivery. (You will receive text updates from the courier to allow you to track the parcel) The cost of this varies on the size of your order and how many deliverys are required. This cost also includes packing and insurance on your order to ensure your stationery arrives in the same condition it left in!
