Wedding Stationery FAQ

Timing

We recommend not leaving it any later than 4 months beforehand. On average 6 months before is a good time to start a conversation with us, ask questions and check timings.

Which printing methods do you offer? Foil, letterpress, digital, one or two colour ink, raised print, embossing, laser. We cover various techniques, our website online ordering allows foil and digital printing, if you are after letterpress or other say hello for custom quotes.

Can I change the wording font? You may mix and match any wording font you see on another invitation design or download our font selection.

Foil printing area? Would you like to use more foil, no problem, however check with us first before purchasing online as foil is generally limited to the area of your names. A larger area may cost more.

When should I send out the invitations? Today the modern way is 6 - 8 weeks prior. We find most brides like to stay with tradition and send out 10 - 12 weeks beforehand, especially if a save the date hasn’t gone out it’s a good idea to be earlier than later.

A save the date card is also a good way to prepare your guests that are interstate and overseas so they have time to make plans.

Generally sent between 6 - 12 months ahead of time depending on how many out of town guests there are and location of wedding.

When should I place my order? Between 4 - 6 months prior to your wedding day.

How do I place an order? You're welcome to place orders online, contact us to put quotes together, or visit our Adelaide based showroom.

How long should I allow from placing my order until delivery? Allow around 3 - 5 weeks, sometimes it is quicker. If you’re in a rush chat with us.
