1. How long before my wedding should I order my Wedding Stationery?
Our process takes about 2-5 working days from receiving your order to delivery of your Stationery. FYI: If you send your invitations out 6-8 weeks before your wedding, as is customary, you would need to order your stationery at least 3 months before your wedding.
2. How many Invitations should I order?
If you work out per household how many invitations you actually need it will give you a good idea of your invitation numbers. You may find that you have mostly couples and families that will only require one invitation per household. It is always a good idea to add approximately 10 to 15 extras invitations for last minute changes.
3. Can I change the wording on the invitations?
Yes of course you can have any wording you would like. We provide a variety of wording and font choices as inspiration for you.
4. Can I get a custom made design?
Yes, please choose our Create your own Blank template design for the product you wish and get creative, you can add images and text in various formats and colours.
5. I want to change the colours of the design I’ve found?
It’s not possible to change the background colour of a specific design. If you’ve found a design you like but want a different colour we recommend that you browse through our design selection and try to find a different design with more suiting colours or contact us on email or alternately call us on 071-9133409.
6. What kind of file format is required?
Our website accepts photos uploaded in the following format: JPEG, GIF, BMP or PNG. You will be able to view if your file is in the correct format by viewing the file properties to see the name for example: wed.jpeg, wed.png, wed.gif etc
7. What kind of picture resolution is required?
A resolution of 200-300 dpi for the photo will result in a high quality card being produced. The average digital picture is approximately 500KB or above and this will result in a high quality printed card. To check the type and size of your file copy your picture to your PC desktop and right click on your image and click on “Properties” at the end of the list. Under the “General” tab you are able to view the type and size of your file.
8. Checking Picture Quality
If you have uploaded a high resolution picture you will be able to zoom into the uploaded picture and position it correctly within your artwork design.
NB: The higher the resolution of the image the greater the flexibility of the zoom feature.
9. Do I have to use a digital camera?
Ideally digital cameras produce the best quality pictures. Photographs taken with a mobile phone are often of too low dpi and size and therefore will not be of good enough quality to print. For best results please upload a photo taken using a digital camera which is set to a medium or high resolution.
10. What kind of picture works best?
For great photos it is important to have the right light. If you are taking photos outside the best time of day is to do this early in the morning in partial shade or early in the evening. If you are taking pictures inside try to use natural light. Window light is great and diffused lighting provides for a softer feel. Try to avoid taking pictures with the flash as this can often wash out colours. Also, try to avoid distracting backgrounds and colour. Neutral backgrounds or a neutral rug often provide great pictures.
11. How do I insert fadas or other language letters?
For Fadas please type directly in the Edit Element Text box in the personalise stage, please hold down CTRL & ALT button together and then press your desired Letter ( á,é,í,ó,ú). For other language please refer to your windows/ computer help or alternately google your desired word and copy and paste the text into the Edit Element Text box directly. Any problem contact us at email@example.com.
