How to Order

 

The following information is really important stuff that we need to know in order to get you an accurate price quote and a design that you LOVE. If you read nothing else on this website, READ THIS. Please. 

To place an order, you can use the Contact form, email us directly at sarahmac@prettyflypaper.com, or, if cold emails aren’t your thing, there’s a button on the Contact form for us to email you, instead! Provide the requested details, and we'll get back to you with a price quote (or potentially more questions). We will create a draft, and then update that draft until it is JUST RIGHT, at which point we will send it to print. All orders will ship approximately two weeks from the date the final version is approved by you, our new favorite client! If you need it sooner, please let us know. Depending on how fast you need it, rush charges may apply, and that is not a fun curve ball for anyone.

Before you get a draft, you will receive a contract. Nothing too crazy, just something to protect us both. The standard protocol for this service, once a price has been decided, is to pay half of the total up front, and half upon receipt of the product. When deliberating about whether or not to pay us once you've received your product, keep in mind that we don't have a lawyer on retainer, but we DO have a puppy with some fear-aggression issues, and she doesn't like people. :)


QUANTITY

We need to know how many people you are inviting to your shindig. Without this, it is impossible to give you any sort of price! 


BUDGET

Look, we know money is a touchy topic for a lot of people, but we don't want to subject you to some sort of Property Brothers about face, where we show you an insane invitation that costs $500 for ten pieces of paper, and then have to retract that because we don't know what an ideal ballpark figure for you is, by which point you're so enamored with the first option that we have to pry it from your cold, dead hands like they do on HGTV. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

We would be thrilled to give you something you love that fits your budget. We don't need the entire breakdown of your wedding, we just need to know what you'd ideally like to spend (and don't say "nothing"), and what your absolute max is. And then we will stay well within that. Pinky promise!

FYI, The Bridal Association of America quoted that the average cost of wedding invitations is $659. Wedding Stats has quoted the average being $441, or a range somewhere between $381 and $441 during 2015. This all depends on what exactly you want, but these figures give you a pretty good idea of what you can typically expect to spend.


PIECES

Some people just want an invitation, others want a separate piece of paper for every hour of that day. We need to know which person you are. A suite that simply contains an invitation and an RSVP is going to be less expensive than a suite with an invitation, an RSVP, a map, a direction card, and a registry insert. 


AESTHETIC

This helps with two things:

  1. Pricing - If you are going for a sleek, no-frills, matte look, this will affect the price of the paper. If you want a bunch of colors, that will call for a different printing technique.

  2. Design - We do not want to send you something that you hate that totally doesn't match the theme you're going for.

If you are on Pinterest, and not against the idea of sharing your boards, send them our way! We’re happy to look through them to get an idea of what you love, what look you're going for, and what colors you're drawn to, and create a design based on those elements that is tailored for you.
