We offer A7 5"x7" size invitations and several other standard sizes of save the dates, insert cards, thank you cards, etc. Please see the stationery sizes page for details on sizes of invitations and other stationery pieces.
All flat printed items are available separately. Several letterpress packages are available that come with envelopes included. Envelopes are available printed with return address or blank.
We offer commercial-grade digital offset printing and letterpress printing. Our products are printed on top of the line, commercial grade presses + equipment.
Please note that letterpress and digital printing are VERY different printing methods and often use different materials, inks, etc.; colors will appear somewhat different when flat printed or letterpressed. Due to the differences in the printing processes, materials, appearance, etc., we recommend that invitation suites or items that will be mailed/viewed together be printed using the same printing method.
Please note that colors can vary slightly between different items (cards, stickers, envelopes, etc) and different press runs (even within the same print method), we recommend ordering all of your customized pieces together (invitations, menu, thank you, etc.) whenever possible.
Because of the technical requirements of our pre-press and production process, printing of user-submitted files or designs is not available.
No; that's illegal copyright infringement.
We will not copy or recreate another designer's copyrighted design.
We will not create a derivative work using another designer's copyrighted design.
We will not incorporate other designer's copyrighted designs or patterns into our products.
Inquiries about copying, recreating another designer's work or creating derivative works using another designer's copyrighted design will generally not receive a response.Return to top
We don't carry pocketfolds. Our invitations are standard A7 5"x7" size which will fit inside many commercially available pocketfolds or similar enclosures. Please note that different manufacturers quote the sizes of their folders differently: some quote internal dimensions and some quote external dimensions. When sourcing your pocketfolds, please be sure to verify all dimensions to ensure a proper fit for your invitations, folders + envelopes.
We offer program cards and folded program covers (blank inside).
We do not print inside text pages of programs. Text pages can be printed yourself onto a sheet (or sheets) of text-weight paper which can be folded and inserted into the program cover. The text pages can be attached to the cover any number of ways depending on individual preference and the number of pages: with a few dots of glue at the crease for a single page, it can be stapled saddle-stitch style, hole punched and tied through with a ribbon, or simply tied around the spine of both the cover and inside pages.
Essentially any text-weight stock that you like can be used with the program covers. The covers fold to 5x7" and unfold to 10x7"so the text inserts can be laid out on standard 8.5x11' text (or any other size sheet) to be trimmed to a bit less than the unfolded dimensions (approximately 4.75 x 9.75"). If more internal pages are used then the page width should be trimmed more to accommodate the additional pages when folded.
Our program covers, as all of our products, are commercially printed on various high-quality paper stocks; we do not recommend running items through desktop home printers, copy machines or similar.Return to top

Because it takes a significant amount of time and work for our professional designers to typeset and personalize each of our products, we can only change the text and colors, etc. after you submit your order. As our designers prepare your proofs, they layout your submitted text making any necessary adjustments in spacing or sizing. None of your items go to press until you have reviewed and approve your pdf proofs. Your initial set of proofs and one round of revisions are free of charge.
All proofs are sent as PDFs.Return to top
Absolutely. You can enter all of your own text for each piece on the website as you prepare your order. Once you place your order, our professional designers will typeset everything with your supplied text and selected colors + fonts. Adjustments to the fonts, sizing, spacing, etc. are made as a matter of course by our designers as they typeset your proofs.
Please feel free to make any notes about how you would like the test to read/show in the special design instructions and our designers will be able to see them when they prepare your proofs.
No problem. You have the option to add two extra lines of text as you customize your items and we have flexibility to work with a bit more. As they prepare your proofs, our designers will adjust text and spacing as appropriate for the amount of text supplied. Please note that designs vary so some designs may not be able to accommodate as much text as others. It may not be possible to fit all desired text on a design.Return to top

A proof is a file image showing exactly how your items will be printed.
Proofs are extremely important because an approved proof/file is used directly to print the cards, envelopes and products you order.
Once you submit your order, proofs are emailed usually within 3 business days after you place your order. During peak times proofs may take up to 5 business days. Your initial set of proofs and one round of revisions are free of charge. PLEASE PROOFREAD SLOWLY AND VERY CAREFULLY: WE PRINT DIRECTLY FROM THE APPROVED PROOFS.
Careful client review of proofs is critical to ensure that all items are correct before being printed. Suggestions for reviewing your proofs include having multiple people review each proof separately and to read each proof backwards. Please remember to check stock choices, quantities and sizes. Required adjustments can easily be made by your designer before final proof approval. Client-requested changes including ink color and text changes altering the item/order as submitted will incur a $25 Fee PER PROOF. (Additional proof is no charge if Delphine is in err).
All changes require additional proof.
ONCE YOU APPROVE THE PROOFS, THERE WILL BE NO FURTHER REVIEW OF YOUR ORDER FOR SPELLING, PUNCTUATION OR CONTENT.
By approving your proofs you agree that you have reviewed all text for errors and omissions and that all text and design will appear exactly as shown and that the quantity indicated on the proof will be printed. Please note that proofs are used to ensure the accuracy of your order; any errors or omissions (e.g. typos) on the approved proofs are the responsibility of the client. Please note that we cannot accept returns of items printed according to approved proofs. Charges apply to any reprints of approved items.
Please note: Since devices, computers and displays can vary greatly and be calibrated differently, all colors viewed online and digitally should be considered approximate. Samples are available so that you can see colors and materials.Return to top
Once you submit your order, proofs are emailed usually within 3 business days after you place your order. During peak times proofs may take up to 5 business days.

All of our items are printed to order and our digital printing process is very efficient with very little waste. The letterpress process consumes very little energy. Our products are printed with great care on an antique letterpress by a talented craftsman in the USA.
Much of our stationery is printed on 100% cotton.
Cotton fibers are naturally brighter and more durable than wood fibers.
Cotton papers press better, cut better and last far longer than wood-based papers.
Cotton papers look and feel luxurious.
No cotton is grown to make our papers; virgin cotton is not used. The cotton that goes into our papers is reclaimed/recovered/recycled from the U.S. garment industry and would otherwise end up in a landfill.
Making paper from cotton is efficient:
• cotton is naturally brighter than wood, so the cotton paper making process requires less bleach, chlorine and other chemicals than to make wood-based papers
• cotton fibers are different than wood, so the cotton paper making process requires less water and less energy than making wood-based papers
Our other papers and envelopes contain a significant amount of post-consumer content (30%-100%).Return to top
