How long will it take to receive my order?

Manufacturing times vary by product. When selecting a product please look at the manufacturing time list on the product page. The shipping method you select will also have an impact on when you receive your order. If you would like to receive your order quickly you can select a different shipping method. Remember that if you select two day shipping it will be two days after your product has been manufactured. You will receive an email confirming that your order has been shipped, this will provide you with a FedEx tracking number so you can track your delivery.


When should I order my invitations?

Most invitation experts suggest ordering your invitation three to six months in advance. You should be prepared to mail them at least six weeks in advance. If you are inviting a large number of out-of-town guests, or if your event is to be held during a popular vacation time, we suggest sending an advance save the date card.


When should I order birth announcements?

You should select and customize your announcements well ahead of time so that you can order online as soon as your little one is born. If you don't know the baby's gender, set up two orders—one for a boy and one for a girl. Be sure to give each order a separate name so you'll know which one to submit when the time comes.


It is best to pre-order the envelopes – and be sure to order extra for addressing mistakes. You and your family can address the envelopes in advance and have them ready to go!


Oops! I need to make changes to my order.

I just emailed my order and I found a mistake. What should I do?

CheckMate™ enables us to send your order to the printer's presses immediately. If the press room is busy, you may have a little time to stop the order. If you find a mistake, email us immediately at We will attempt to notify the printer before their work is completed. You will be responsible, however, if it cannot be stopped in time. So, please check your order carefully before you submit it. We will notify you as to the outcome.


I need more than I ordered.

Email us immediately if you discover that you need to increase the quantity. We will try to catch the order before it has been printed. The price for an additional 25 is always a better value than a new order for 25. If you are close to your guest count, you may consider ordering an extra twenty-five in case of mistakes or last minute additions. If the order cannot be stopped before it is printed, you will be charged at the new order price. We will notify you to let you know whether the order was stopped in time or not.


I want to add another accessory to my order.

Adding an accessory can always be treated as a separate order. You will not be charged an additional fee for this.
