Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to make an appointment to come in or place an order?

Although we love meeting our clients in person, you do not need to come in to the studio to place an order. Should you want to come in to see our portfolios and displays, learn a little more about how we work, or ask questions about placing an order online - contact us to set up a 30 minute browsing session.

If you would like to go with our custom experience - contact us to set up a complimentary design consultation (minimum $2000 budget for custom invitation suites | minimum $150 design fee for custom save the dates | minimum $1000 budget for custom day of details orders). If you aren't sure if you'll be ordering online or going our custom experience route, then a browing session is your best bet so we can answer your questions. We are also available via ZOOM chat if you are not in the Atlanta area.

What's the difference between the custom experience and the online collection?

Our team at Paper Daisies is here to help you bring your unique vision/brand to life. To fit your workflow style, and your taste and budget, we have designed two options for wedding and event stationery - our pre-designed online collection and our completely custom design experience.

Online Collection vs Custom Experience | Paper Daisies Stationery

Online Collection - For clients who are out of town or for those who prefer working digitally, our online collection has over 50 pre-designed suites to choose from with new collections added monthly. Personalizing wording, colors, and papers is made easy on our website. This not only allows clients to personalize their stationery but also to stay on budget. Further customization is also available through a variety of add-ons from vellum, ribbon, and wax seals to letterpress, foil and venue illustrations. After placing your order, your initial proof will be emailed within 2-3 business days. Digital print production typically takes about 2.5 weeks from the date of approval. We recommend that you place your order at least 3-6 weeks from your desired in-hand date. This allows ample time for the proofing process as well as any extended production time required for certain addons (such as letterpress, foil, hand calligraphy, custom monograms, and custom watercolors). To learn more, visit our Online Collection Info Page. To peruse our collections, visit our Shop Page.

Custom Experience - For clients who are looking to develop a uniquely branded suite or just want something more custom than the options available on our website, we offer a custom experience that begins with a complimentary design consultation. Once we have met and we understand the vision, we will create an initial design concept for save the dates and invitations with a corresponding estimate within about 2.5 weeks of the initial consultation. While production time for custom invitations ranges, it typically takes between 4-5 weeks. We recommend that our clients looking for custom designs schedule their consult at least 8-12 weeks before they wish to send out their invitations (or about 4 months before their wedding date). To learn more about our custom experience, visit our Custom Experience Info Page

In what order should I put my invitation pieces in my envelopes?

How to stuff your envelopes is really up to you. If you have cards to include, we recommend placing them behind the invitation in the outer envelope. If you ordered ribbon or twine, once tied you can slide the cards under it to hold them in place.

If you ordered a response envelope, slide your enclosure cards into the closed flap to help hold them together in the mail. If your response envelope adds a pop of color, place it in front so your guests see the color upon opening their invitation.

Can I change the colors when I order online?

Absolutely! You can select a main color and an optional accent color. We recommend choosing a darker color for your text and using the lighter colors as accents. Some of our watercolor swatches and floral details have pre-determined color offerings, but you can always change the color of the font. You can also order coordinating envelopes, liners, and backing layers! Mix and match or use the same colors throughout your suite! Learn more on our Online Collections Info Page.

Can I customize my online order?

We offer many ways to personalize our designs right on our website including adding your information, changing ink colors, adding vellum and ribbon, changing fonts, and even adding high-end printing like letterpress and foil! If you are looking for an option that you can't find on our site, consider going with our Custom Experience so you can work with a designer to get exactly what you are envisioning. If you have any questions please start a chat with us or set up a time to come in for a 30 minute browsing session. To learn more about our options, visit our Online Collection Info Page.

Can I provide my own monogram or artwork?

If you have permission to use the custom art then we'd be happy to add it to your designs! There will be a custom design/artwork set-up fee of $50.

Will I see my invitation before placing my order?

Once you place your order online you will be contacted by your designer who will be creating and emailing you your first digital proof in around 2 days. Once you've had time to review, you'll have 2 more rounds of proofs to edit and finalize your stationery so that we can move on to print! Please note, we pre-authorize your credit card to get started with the proofing process, but we will not charge it until you have approved your order for print.

Are my proofs going to be printed or digital?

We offer 3 rounds of complimentary digital proofs and as many rounds of proofs as you need beyond that for $25 each. If you would like to have a customized printed sample of your invitations, we can accommodate that request for a $50 print fee (please note that printed samples will be flat printed in-house and may not reflect the final look of our outsourced high-end printing techniques). If you're mostly interested in seeing the colors we'd highly recommend ordering a sample pack which includes printed color cards on white and ivory paper.

What is computer calligraphy?

We are proud to offer both computer calligraphy and hand calligraphy guest addressing services for our save the date, wedding invitation, and thank you card envelopes. Computer calligraphy has the look of hand-calligraphy and will be printed to match the color and style of your suite. This is a great and cost effective alternative to addressing them by hand. If you choose to add guest addressing to your order, we request that you use Our Template. To learn more, visit our Online Collection Info Page.

 

Do I need inner envelopes?

Inner and outer envelopes are an old tradition that dates back to when invitations were delivered by horseback. The outer envelope would get so dirty that it was removed once delivered so that the addressed recipient only saw the clean inner envelope. They aren't necessary or even common these days except for very traditional weddings, however we do offer them by request.

How much postage do I need?

We recommend taking your invitations to the Post Office you plan to mail them from and have them weighed. They will recommend the correct postage according to their scale. If it's a single card and envelope it will likely be a standard 1oz stamp, however if you have multiple inserts, a liner, and ribbon you may need a 2oz stamp. You should also note that square envelopes always require additional postage.

When should I send out my invitations?

Typically 8-12 weeks is a good time to send out your wedding invitations. Err on the earlier side if you aren't sending save the dates. We highly recommend avoiding rainy days and holiday card season if possible. Visit our Timelines Page for more information.

How long does it take to receive my order?

Once we've received your final approval, your order will immediately go to print. For online flat printed orders fulfillment typically takes about 2.5 weeks. We recommend that you place your order at least 3-6 weeks from your desired in-hand date. This allows ample time for the proofing process as well as any extended production time required for certain addons (such as letterpress, foil, hand calligraphy, custom monograms, and custom watercolors). If we are using high-end printing techniques or doing any assembly, production can take an additional 1-2 weeks depending on the job. 

To learn more, visit our Online Collection Info Page. To peruse our collections, visit our Shop Page.

While production time for custom invitations ranges, it typically takes between 4-5 weeks. We recommend that our clients looking for custom designs schedule their consult at least 8-12 weeks before they wish to send out their invitations (or about 4 months before their wedding date).

Will my invitations be assembled for me?

That depends. If you order online, your stationery will come ready to be folded, lined, matted or tied unless you indicate to your designer that you'd like for us to handle that part for you. Our custom experience pricing includes all assembly aside from stuffing and sealing the envelopes. We offer stuffing, stamping, and sealing as an additional service as our print schedule allows. Please inquire with your designer if you'd like to add this service.

How should I seal my envelopes?

Envelopes have a gum paste that is activated by moisture (licking or using water). We prefer to use Scotch 3M Transfer tape (general purpose). We do not recommend using a glue stick to seal your invitations. Whatever method you choose, we highly recommend testing a sample to be sure it’s sealed tight before mailing.

I heard you have rental items for local weddings! What do you have available?

We do!! As an additional service to our clients ordering Day of Details items and getting married locally, we have a wide range of rental items that can really add that finishing touch! We rent large and small frames, table numbers, easels, pre-made signs and more! Please inquire with your designer and set up a time to come by the studio to check them out.

Do you offer sustainable or environmentally friendly paper and printing options?

We offer a great earth-friendly option! Our premium cotton paper options are from a paper line called Reich Savoy. This paper is tree free and made from 100% recovered cotton from the textile industry that would otherwise end up in a landfill. And since cotton is naturally brighter white than wood, the cotton paper making process requires less bleach and other chemicals than papers made from wood. It also requires far less water processing and far less energy. Savoy is archival, acid free, recyclable, biodegradable, and elemental chlorine free. And for printing, our favorite letterpress vendor uses all soy inks. Soy ink is a helpful component in paper recycling because the soy ink can be removed more easily than regular ink from paper during the de-inking process. Soy ink also has low levels of VOCs, (volatile organic compounds) which helps to reduce air pollution by minimizing toxic emissions. They also clean all of their equipment with Citra Solv products which are made with plant-based ingredients and contain no dyes, EDTA, phosphates or chlorine and scented with the finest essentials oils.
