Can I print my invitation with multiple sets of wording?
If you require multiple sets of wording (for example, you may wish to include your ceremony information on some invitations and not on the others), we charge £10.00 per artwork to cover all set-up costs.
Both sets of wording will need to be supplied to our designers, along with each quantity required per artwork.
Do you print in languages other than English?
We can print your invitations in any language that you desire! This option of foreign language will be available in the ‘Personalise Wording & Information’ step when placing your order.
We do however charge a £10.00 foreign language fee, and will require your entire foreign language wording to be supplied to our designers in a PDF file. This ensures that all foreign language and characters are 100% correct, as our designs may not have any prior knowledge or understanding of your content.
If you wish to have some of your invitations printed in English, and some in a foreign language, we will also have to charge a £9.00 split artwork fee as our designers will then have to create two separate artworks and our printing team will have to create two different plates. Again, we will need both sets of wording and the quantity for each artwork.
When will my invitation be printed?
Only after you have made your 100% final approval will any of your items be printed!
Once you make your final approval, our production team will put your order into printing and production; our printing and production timeframe is between 4-6 business days.
Before your final approval has been made, you can make any design or quantity changes that you may require. After you make your final approval, and your order has been put into printing and production, we unfortunately CANNOT make any further changes to your order.
This also means that if you realise that you need to order some extra invitations after you’ve made your final approval, or after you’ve received your order, that unfortunately your additional invitations will need to be counted as a new order; and therefore will need to be placed through our website with a minimum order quantity of 20, or 50 for any custom foil invitation designs.
Can I print photos and images on my invites?
We can print photos or images on any premium invitations that DO NOT have any pre-embossed or foiled elements.
The images that you supply us with will need to be at least 300pi, and may result in us having to print your wording and information with our digital or offset printing technique (rather than our raised thermographic printing process).
Can I have a map printed?
Maps can be printed on most of our invitations that DON’T have any pre-embossed or foiled elements. You may either send us a high quality (at least 300pi) image of your required map OR our designers can re-draw your map for you; however, this will incur a £20.00 design fee for their time and effort.
Can I have my guests’ names printed onto my invitations?
We can print your guests’ names on selected invitations (all of our invitations note whether guest name printing is available or not) for £0.40 per invitation.
We will need you to supply us with your guest list in the form of an Excel spreadsheet (our template is available to download from our website), and unfortunately to print any guest names we have to change our printing technique from thermographic (raised ink) to digital printing (flat ink). This is due to the printing process required for individual guest names.
If you opt for guest name printing, Adorn will supply you with an extra 5% of your item quantity WITHOUT guest names, to use as spares. These invites will have all of your wording and information printed, with a blank space for you to handwrite guest names if so desired.
If you do not wish to pay to have your guests’ names printed, or do not want your wording to be printed with flat ink, you may request for our designers to leave you a space (or include a line) for you to then handwrite your guests’ names onto your invitations. This request is to be included in the ‘comments & instructions to designer’ section during our personalization steps.
Alternatively, you could proceed with a more economical option by having your guests’ names and addresses printed on the front of your envelopes for just £0.25 per envelope.
Can I have addresses printed onto my envelopes?
Absolutely! We can print any of your guests’ names or addresses on our white envelopes for just £0.25 per envelope.
We will need all of your guests’ names and addresses to be supplied to us in an Excel spreadsheet, in the exact same format as our downloadable template that is available on our website.
If you would also like us to print your senders’ address on the back of your invitation envelopes (incase anything gets lost in the mail), or on the front of your RSVP envelopes (to make it easier for your guests to send their replies back), we charge just £0.15 per envelope. You will be prompted to select this option, and to supply your senders’ address, whilst proceeding through our personalization steps.
What printing processes do you use?
Adorn Wedding Invitations utilise a wide variety of printing techniques, dependent on which invitation design you choose. Our most common printing processes used are thermographic, digital, and offset printing. We also now offer gold foil printing, for an additional cost, on particular invitation designs.
Thermographic printing is a technique that requires us to create metal plates of your wording and information; those plates are then coated in hot ink and used as a stamp to then melt the ink onto your invitations. This process leaves your invitations with an exquisite raised ink effect, which is available in black, dark grey, dark brown, wine red and Persian blue.
In contrast, digital printing does not require the use of metal plates and instead creates a flat and sharp finish. This technique allows for a wider range of colour choices compared to our thermographic ink.
If you are ever unsure of what printing techniques are used on your favorite invitation designs, simply select the ‘product info’ button under your chosen invite. There you will see the product size, type, paper and printing process.
Can you print on the back of the invitations?
Reverse printing in available on all accessory cards and particular invitations - depending on the paper used and any pre-applied elements.
An additional fee of £0.25 is charged per invitation for double sided printing; and all invites will have to be printed through our digital printers (flat ink), as the heat used for thermography printing (raised ink) will potentially damage the reverse side of the card.
If you are unsure as to whether reverse printing is available on your chosen invitation, please don’t hesitate to contact our team with any enquiries!
Can you match colours?
As colours can easily vary from digital media in comparison to printed colours, Adorn Wedding Invitations does not take responsibility for 100% colour matching. Colours can vary up to 20% due to the different printing processes used, therefore making exact colour matching close to impossible.
Because of this, we highly recommend ordering samples of any invitations that you’re interested in; that way you can compare colours in person compared to on a computer screen. We also send our custom colour chart with all of our sample orders, allowing you to further appreciate your colour options in person (especially if you’re opting for a metallic paper stock).
