GENERAL


WHAT IS CUSTOM STATIONERY?

These are pieces that are specially made for you and your big day. They are one-of-a-kind pieces created using your venues, personalities and your style and vibe. It’s stationery that is unique to you.


HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR MY ORDER TO BE CREATED AND SHIPPED?

Custom pieces take various lengths of time and all depends on the illustration, printing method used and the pieces you'd like to have. Generally custom Save the Dates usually ships between 1 - 2 weeks. Other custom stationery pieces such as; Invitation suite usually ships between 4 - 5 weeks from the start date of your order. If your event is coming up and you’d like sometime quite urgent, don’t hesitate to get in contact we’re usually able to work to tight deadlines.


HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY PIECES?

Orders are either shipped tracked and signed for via DHL // or // hand delivered, if you're in London over some congratulatory cake! Shipping times are between 1-3 day. In some cases they may take longer and are dependent on your country of residence. I always advise before orders are placed, so don’t hesitate to get in touch. Also, if your order is urgent please let me know.


HOW CAN I PAY?

Payments are split into 2/3 sections throughout the process. There are a few different payment methods available; either via BACS, or for our international clients we accept card and PayPal payments via our Etsy store for safe and secure transactions.


WHAT IS YOUR REFUND AND RETURN POLICY?

If you cancel your custom order and work has already commenced, deposit payments are non-refundable.

All custom orders are unique to you and your event. Once you approve the final pieces, these cannot be returned.


CUSTOM STATIONERY / COMMISSIONS


DO YOU WORK WITH INTERNATIONAL CLIENTS?

Yes, we most definitely do! We've worked with many international couples and have had the pleasure of creating pieces for couples in Australia, USA, Canada, France, Italy, Mexico, England, Ireland and Scotland and we love working worldwide! For more details get in contact.


WHAT’S THE PROCESS?

Once you've got in contact for your custom stationery order, we'll arrange to meet over FaceTime / Skype, or in a coffee shop, and discuss your stationery further. I’ll also show you some of the recent pieces I’ve created.

I’ll then require all the information you’d like to go into your stationery. From here I’d create 1 - 3 sketch designs. Once you’re happy with the direction, I’ll create a proof of your stationery that you’d be sent via email.

Once you approve the proof, we will send your custom order to be printed, cut and safely packed. I will then notify you when it's on it's way to you.
