Printing Process and Cardstocks
All of our products are printed on a commercial printing press using the latest in colour Digital Print Technology. We do not print on a home printer so you can be assured of a great print result.
Foil stamping is done using the old fashioned platens. Much of this process is labour intensive but the wait is worth it.
We print our Invitations on a 280gsm White Vellum, 250gsm White Shimmer, 270gsm Ivory Felt, or 330gsm White Linen cardstocks for digital and 350gsm White Satin for foil stamped.
What is the Minimum Order?
Inviting Weddings has a minimum order of 30 for invitations and accessories. We know that you won’t need 30 for table numbers and menus so we’ve kept those to a minimum of 8 for table numbers and menus.
If further invitations or printed products are required after the first order is printed, a minimum order of 12 will apply. We are unable (due to high print costs) to print quantities of less than 12.
We do understand that sometimes invitations go missing in the mail to your guests, or extra friends turn up unexpectedly, so we recommend ordering a few more invitations than you actually need.
Do you have a retail shop, where I can come and see your full product range?
Yes, our Sunshine Coast office in Queensland is available to visit by appointment. Please contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to come by and see our designs and samples.
Alternatively, we offer free mailed samples of our wedding invitations
Are you able to change your designs to a different colour?
Absolutely! Colour changes are free..Just ask!
We recommend printing a sample to check that the printed result colour is what you had in mind. A printed sample costs $25
Questions regarding PRICING:
Where are the hidden charges, or will I get asked to pay more later?
It’s amazing the amount of times we get asked if there are any extra costs involved. Unlike many other invitation companies you know what you will be charged in full up front.
We do not hide any known costs. The price you see in the order calculator is the price you will pay, before you commit to your order.
We do not charge for envelopes – these are included
Extras at an additional charge are shown at the time of order and are optional:
Premium cardstocks (Shimmer, Felt, Linen)
Guest Name personalisation
Shipping: see below
Delivery of express (standard) post at $18.00 – unless you want express print and post* at $50, which speeds up the printing process to 4 day print turnaround * not available for foil stamped or wood products.
We do not charge for print of your event details (that’s included and all part of the product) – the only extra is for personalisation and optional extras such as magnets and premium cardstocks – but this is all shown upfront.
You can be assured of a quality product with no hidden charges.
GUEST NAMES – I would like to have my Guests’ names printed onto the invitation, is this possible?
Yes, we can print your Guests’ names onto their invitation. Simply select this in the option items during the order process, and the charges will add to your shopping cart.
Make sure you download the XL spreadsheet, complete the required details and email it back to us, prior to your order starting through our process.
Inviting Weddings will not post your invitations directly to your Guests. Postage to your Guests is the responsibility of the customer. However, if you do require a quote for this full-fillment service, cost vary between $80 – $180 plus postage – depending on quantity and applicable postage charges.
Can you print in another language?
Yes. We just need you to supply a document with the wording in the language you require. We will then create the artwork using your supplied text and send you a digital PDF to proof and approve. Once approved, we will start the printing process for your order.
SAMPLES – How many free wedding invitation samples can I order?
A maximum of 2 designs can be chosen for our free wedding invitation sample program. All samples provided will be generic and will not include your personalised text.
Are free wedding invitation samples available for custom designs?
Sorry No. Printed samples for all Custom Designs attract a small fee of $25, to cover our print, postage and admin costs. We do suggest that for Wedding Invitations with a colour change, that you order a print sample so you can be assured of your perfect colour choice.
