you can even mix components from different invitations.
When perusing our website please take note of the design number to refer to us.
Don’t have time to visit us – that is also perfectly fine. We service NZ Wide (also worldwide).
We can work with you via email. We can freight to you where ever you are.
Invitation Ordering Information
Please provide as much information as possible when enquiring for a quote or ordering.
MINIMUM OF 30 INVITATIONS
We have a minimum of 30 Invitations required at time of ordering. (ordering less they will be 50% more each – $15 minimum)
Please remember that 30 Invitations usually cover approximately 50 people (taking into account couples)
It is wise to also get a few extra invitations printed to cover last minute people you wish to invite,
or if you make a mistake while writing names on the invitations.
TIMING OF DESIGN TO PRINT – usually TWO weeks (usually) to THREE weeks (if delays in proofing)
Once we have your deposit and your words/design ideas/photos (everything required) we will begin your artwork.
The TWO to THREE weeks start from when we get everything – $ / your wording / photos (approx. 500kb per photo or image) / design ideas (from the internet) etc…
Delays can happen if you make many changes, or take days to proof the artwork, also allow extra time if printed proofs are being freighted to you either via courier or nz post.
Please do not be offended if you need them sooner than TWO weeks, and we say it is not possible.
As it would not be fair to bump our current clients to fit you in – please come in or email your fully prepared information, wording, photos, ideas.
Wording MUST be TYPED, this eliminates spelling or typing errors. (also we do not have time to sit and retype your wording, or to try to decipher your writing)
If you change your whole design concept after we have designed your first concept you will be charged for a whole new design.
Once we have your $ and your words / photos / we will begin your artwork.

Please check this thoroughly Spelling, Names, Dates, Contact Details. etc…
We cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions detected after approval for print.
Once you are happy with the proof, we like you to see a Printed Proof, you can pick this up, or we can freight this to you for $5 (usually ready within 3 business days).
If you require changes AFTER the sample has been made, and/or a new sample is required to be viewed, you will be required to pay an additional charge of $15.
Once this has your final approval, please email to confirm, and we will then go to print.
If you would like the proof on multiple stocks, the first is FREE, then $6 per different stock. (* more complex – more $ each)
