You are free to choose whatever wording you would like on your wedding stationery (so long as it’s not a mini essay that would mean the font would be too small to read if everything were to fit on one page!). We’ve put together a helpful guide on our Wording Guidance page.
Mixing and Matching Designs
If you like the fonts and layout of two different designs, just let us know as we can usually mix and match any of our existing designs for no additional charge.
We can change the colour of fonts to fit in with your wedding theme for no additional charge. If you want the colours in the drawings changed, please get in touch with us. Sometimes this is simple for us to do so there would be no extra charge but other more complex drawings will be very timely to recolour so an additional design fee would apply. We've tried to make clear on our designs which ones we can change design colours for no additional fee, but do get in touch if anything isn't clear.
Location / VENUE Not FEATURED
If you like the style of our designs but your venue isn’t listed, we can illustrate your venue or location for you for an additional charge for the design time. Pricing for creating new locations & venues can be found in our pricing table further down this page.
We usually print all of our paper designs on Tintoretto Gesso paper stock as it has a real premium feel and the texture is absolutely beautiful. However, if you would like something different, it’s no issue at all as we have access to lots of different kinds of paper. A change in paper type might mean an additional charge to cover the cost of different paper but there isn’t usually a huge difference among similarly weighted paper so just drop us a message and we can pull a quote together for you. Note that thicker papers like Lux are generally a lot more expensive.
OTHER WEDDING STATIONERY
If you want to see what your favourite of our designs might look like on other wedding stationery (like place cards, info cards or wedding signs), please drop us an email: email@example.com or submit our contact form here and let us know which products you are looking for so we can send you some examples.
Welcome, order of the day and table plan signs are all matte laminated and mounted on 5mm Foamex boards. We find that Foamex boards are much more hard wearing than Foamcore signs and will easily stand up sturdy all day and night for your special day and make a lovely momento to keep afterwards. If you would rather have your design printed onto a poster for you to frame yourself at home, let us know and we can issue you with a quote for it.
When should we order?
Custom wedding stationery take a bit longer than 'off the shelf' and online templates because we spend time making sure that the colours, spacing, layout and fonts are all perfect for your requirements, so we always recommend ordering as early as possible, even if you don't have all of your details finalised yet.
The time it takes to get your designs ready for print also depend on how quickly you are able to approve or provide feedback on proofs we send to you.
Please let us know when you need your wedding stationery in your order form, so that we can advise if this will be possible or not. If you think you might be slow getting back to us with feedback or approval, please let us know when you complete the order form so that we can build in extra time.
MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITIES
Our minimum order quantities for most printed paper products is 40 units. If you need a lesser quantity, let us know but do note that the price per unit will be higher than those prices listed below to reflect the amount of time that it takes for design and print set up.
How Does it Work?
- Click on the design you like from our designs and fill in the order form OR if we haven't already illustrated your venue, fill in the order form here.
- We send you back a personalised quotation.
- You confirm that you would like to proceed and transfer the 50% deposit payment so that we can crack on with your designs!
- We send back a proof for each design within three weeks (usually sooner) to review.
- If you approve the proof, we'll need you to transfer the balance 50% payment so that we can get your design off to the printers! Your printed wedding stationery should then be with you within 3 weeks from the point of approval.
- If you have any revisions (in line with our Revision terms & conditions), let us know so that we can get to work getting the designs perfect for your needs. We'll then send you a revised proof once we've made the amendments after receiving your feedback. Once you approve the revised proof, see the point above for what happens next!
Terms & Conditions
Once your order is confirmed, we'll need to take a non-refundable 50% deposit before we can begin any work on your order. Once the designs are finalised and approved by you, we will require the balance 50% before we send your order off to print. Our preferred mode of payment is via bank transfer. We will provide the bank transfer details on the invoice and send you through a receipt once we receive payment.
Included in the price is up to 3 revisions for each type of design your have ordered (e.g. full day invitation = one design, evening invitation = one design, RSVP card = one design). To clarify, a revision is where upon receiving a design proof from the Inky Acorn Designs, you, the customer, request an alteration. For our existing designs, the revisions included within the price are: additional wording to be added, font colour changes, switching to a layout we use in another of our existing designs, changing the case of the font (e.g. to sentence case or all capitals).
If revisions are required, you are advised to collate them and send them to Inky Acorn Designs together in one email where possible as each request received from you to make amendments to the design will count as one revision. (e.g. If you request that we amend the font colour and then later send a request for additional wording to be added to the design, this will count as two revisions. However, if you request both these changes at the same time, in the same email; it will only be classified as one revision. The reasoning for this is that each minor change can significantly impact different elements of the design, so if we have all the information of changes required at the same time, it will take much less time to resolve revisions than if multiple separate amendment requests are received at differing times.)
If you would like us to use different fonts in the design that we don't use in any of our other designs, there will be a £20 charge so that we can spend time finding the perfect combination. If you want different colours used in the drawing, please get in touch. It might be that the colour change is quite simple or it could be much more complex and time consuming for us to change. We need to understand what you would like before we can quote for colour changes or drawing changes.
If in the unlikely event that the you are unhappy with the final design and the 3 revisions have been utilised, you have the option to request additional revisions for an additional charge of £20 per revision or to terminate the agreement. If the agreement is terminated by you, the deposit will be kept by Inky Acorn Designs and no other charges will be due and no further work will be completed by Inky Acorn Designs.
All designs will be sent by PDF to you to approve before they are sent off to print. Once you have approved the files, we unfortunately cannot take any responsibility for any spelling errors that you did not notice on the proof so we do ask that you thoroughly check each proof carefully before you let us know that it is approved. If you do spot an error after the designs have been sent to print, we will have to receive payment for re-printing before we can send corrected versions to print.
