Custom wedding invitations?
The great thing about custom wedding invitations is that we can work together to create the perfect invitation for you! You can have as much or as little input as you want to have - I have 1000s of fonts and images to choose from, so the options are endless. We can discuss the options via email or you can make an appointment at my office in Auckland, New Zealand.

rsvp cards, maps, name cards, place cards

How about maps, rsvp cards, thank you cards etc?
That's the great bit about custom invites - we can put together a package to suit! Maps are great if guests are coming from out of town, or you could offer an information card providing details about the gift registry, transport details, or accommodation options in the area.

what do I need to do?

How much involvement do I have?
A lot of care needs to go into the design of wedding invitations to ensure that the invite reflects the bride and groom and the style of your wedding. You will need to send the wording for your invitations through and we will work with you to put something suitable together. You can leave it completely up to us, or we can work closely together to create you wedding invitations.

how long will it take?

How long will it take?
Once you've given us the wording and any ideas you have, we can make a start on your design. We will email a few options in less than a week. You are then welcome to comment, critique and make changes to the wording as required. Once we have created a final wedding invitation design, we send out a proof for you to view (via overnight courier within New Zealand) and printing normally takes a day or two to complete.

wedding invite proof

Do I see a copy of the final invite before they are printed?
Absolutely. Once you have decided on a final wedding invitation design we will courier out a proof of your invite. This will take a day or two to print and to get out to you via an overnight courier service which is available New Zealand wide. If you're overseas we an post it out (takes about 1 week to arrive). We can provide the invitation on different paper stocks, giving you the opportunity to view paper stock quality and finished invitation.

Do you have embellishments to add something extra to my wedding invitations?

letterpress embossing foil

Do you offer special print finishes?
Of course. We can help with good quality digital printing as well as more elaborate print finishes such as letterpress printing (where the text and imagery is indented into the paper), heat embossing (creating a glossy, raised print finish) or foiling (a metallic finish in a range of colours which can be embossed).

overseas orders

Do you take orders from overseas?
Yes. In this case you will need to allow a little more time than usual as we need to allow up to 7 days for the post to get a proof to you once your wedding invitation design has been finalised. To ship the final set of wedding invitations to you we use an international economy courier which varies in price depending on your location and the size of the parcel (usually around $30-60 to give you an idea).
