stationery FAQs

  • Save the dates: We recommend Save the Date’s if you are a super-planner a year or more in advance or if you have a lot of guests overseas. This is a nice way to help your guest with their planning arrangements, as well as give them a taste of what’s to come.
  • Invitations: Invitations are normally sent out to your guests at least 3-6 months before the day. This will help you to plan a stress-free wedding. We suggest making your RSVP date 1-2 months before, so you can start putting together your final numbers for all your service providers.
  • On the day: We like to start with designs at least 1-2 months before the wedding. However, you can secure your date way sooner, so you know we have scheduled you in our calendar.

Once you are happy with your quote, we require a 50% deposit and your stationery wording typed up all in 1 word doc. This helps us to easily copy and paste to get started with the designs.

If you already have your own designs and only require printing or production from us, then a small set-up fee is charged for our time to set up the printing/production files.

A design fee is more expensive, as it includes 3 drafts of custom designed mock-ups to which you can make changes. Additional fees apply if you require more than 3 design drafts.

A design draft consists of a presentation file with all your stationery designs digitally mocked up to give you a good idea of how the stationery will look once it’s been printed.

Yes sure! We can do samples at an additional cost of R150 per sample. This cost is absorbed if there are no changes to be made to the samples.

Once we have received your deposit and wording, please allow 3-4 working days before you receive your 1st draft from us. We try to get your designs to you as soon as possible, but we do have a busy schedule. If you have a tight deadline, please inform our designer and she will try to accommodate you.

Once your designs are approved, please allow 7-14 working days for production. This gives us enough time to order the right papers & supplies. Keep in mind, we are usually working on 3 or more jobs a week. We appreciate your patience.

Unfortunately, we can’t always accommodate last minute jobs. We recommend getting in contact with us at least 1 month before the date. However, in some cases, we can add a rush order fee to ensure your job is pushed to the front of our production schedule.
