We have produced this section to explain exactly how we work and other useful info and tips.
Our initial brainstorming meeting is free of charge. The meeting will last around an hour, and can take place during office hours or of an evening. I will show you the quality of our work, we will talk about your function and ideas and then we will talk about specifications for us to provide you with an accurate quote.
If you would like to go ahead, we will require a deposit which will be deducted off of the final balance. The deposit is taken to cover the costs incurred during the initial stages of the process.
Our prices include an allowance for artwork and as appropriate a logo. Artwork supplied by a customer must be in an acceptable electronic format.
It is your responsibility to check all spellings, addresses, postcodes, etc. The final items will be printed exactly as your approved proofs. Proofs are normally sent by email as an attachment in pdf format. Proofs normally print in exact size and typeface specified. We most strongly advise that you print out a copy of the proof to ensure you are 100% happy with the chosen sizes
The following items can be personalised :
Invitations – Names on invitations (dependant on processes involved)
Envelopes – Names and addresses
RSVP – Names on RSVP’s
Thank You – Names and addresses on Envelopes
Escort Cards – Names on Front, Table Numbers inside
Place Cards – Names on front of the cards or menus
We supply a Template for personalisation and all lists must follow our template instructions. We do not alter your inputted information in any way. Any work required to put them into a suitable format may be charged additionally at £25.00 + VAT per hour
Please carefully calculate the number of invites and associated stationery you require. We strongly recommend that you allow at least an additional 10% as spares.
For example, for a wedding take 200 Guests and then ask yourself how many of the guests will be single? or if it is a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, it is usually the school friends and the older guests.
Delivery times are from the date of “Sign Off” of the proofs, NOT the date of placing the Order. Quoted number of days for production is the number of WORKING days, not calendar days.
Where a “special delivery” date is agreed, it is subject to the proofs being “signed off” and any personalisation list is available on the agreed dates. It is immediately invalidated if these conditions are not met.
When do I need to order my Invitations?
We recommend that you send out the invitations as follows:
Overseas guests (Unless a Save the Date has been done) – 12 weeks prior
UK Guests – 8 weeks prior
To make ordering and delivering your Invitations a really great experience, we recommend starting the process 6 Months before the function.
We accept payment by Cash, Cheque, Card or BACS for a Deposit or final payment.
