HOW LONG BEFORE MY EVENT SHOULD I SEND OUT MY INVITATIONS?
We recommend sending out your event invitations 2 – 3 months before your event date. This gives enough time for notice to your guests, and to receive your rsvp at least 1 month before your event. For destination weddings, we suggest sending out invitations 3 – 4 months before the event date.
WHAT IS YOUR ARTWORK FEE?
Our artwork fee ranges from R850 for bespoke wedding/event invitations, to R1000 for wedding/event day stationery designs. However, all bespoke designs are subject to a design fee.
This fee is for the conceptualizing, research, mood-boards and time it takes to create your unique design.
We offer up to two rounds of edits to perfect/finalize your designs.
Design time is calculated purely on the amount of work on the brief you supply. The more intricate the design work, the more time is required to complete the design. Our ready-to-buy items on our online shop are not subject to an artwork fee, only personalization of bespoke stationery, bespoke stationery and custom orders are subject to artwork fee.
I HAVE ARTWORK ALREADY MADE, CAN YOU PRINT FOR ME?
Unfortunately we are unable to handle requests designed by other artists.
We are well-versed in print techniques and design accordingly for each indivudual order in the order’s specific style.
While we do custom printing, we do not print other designer’s/online editing software works. We design on high DPI, and in certain softwares. We require high quality graphics and artworks to be able to print high quality cards.
Due to the nature of online editing software, we normally receive low quality artworks thus resulting in low quality printing. We prefer not to work with these types of artworks and insist that when ordering through us, that we handle the project from start of design to finish – ensuring you receive the best quality products from us!
DO YOU OFFER RUSH ORDERS?
We totally understand the need to have wedding invitations or custom orders in a jiffy. Our rush orders allow us to accommodate your order in a 5 business day timeline, and is subject to an additional rush fee. This fee covers our team working after hours to produce your order. Please email beforehand to confirm availability of a rush order before placing an order with us. We cannot always guarantee this, but we do try our best!
HOW DO I ADD INFORMATION TO MY INVITATION?
When submitting a request please ensure that you send the correct wording for your invitation.
If you are undecided about wording, let me know and i will be glad to give you options of formal, informal and fun wording for your invites.
You have TWO free edits after the final design is submitted.

We will do our utmost best to accommodate all your wording and information in your chosen design. Keep in mind that adding large amounts of text one one card is not recommended as this will affect the legibility of your text and invitation design.
