Your story in one sentence.

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved to cut and glue pieces of paper together. Growing up, I discovered that God had given me a talent for crafting different things out of paper, but I never really used this gift.

The first card I ever made was a far cry from the cards that I make today, but even back then my friends loved the individuality and care that my cards reflected.

When I had my first son, I started scrapbooking, which made me rediscover my passion for working with paper. I loved it! Some years later, a friend asked me if I would make the invites for her daughter's birthday.

And that is how URinvited was born in 2001.

After that initial sale, and with my husband's insistence, I started making cards for friends and acquaintances. Then a friend of my husband's asked me to supply his store with cards for various occasions a few months later. The business began to grow, slowly but steadily.
Today URinvited is a design company that creates a breadth of beautiful and unique handmade stationary products to suit any personal or corporate event: Retirements, Weddings, Save the Dates, Bridal Showers, Invitations, Programs, Menus, Table Numbers, Favor Tags, Place Cards, Birth Announcements, Baby Showers, Party Invitations, Graduation Announcements, and even Custom Holiday Cards.

1. Select your invitation design
Browse through our website and choose from any of our collections. Decide which design best suits your taste and style. You may also want to order a sample to view our collections in person!
Customization requests are welcome. We do our best to alter the designs to your likings.

2. Contract
Once your project details are determined, we will prepare a price quote based on your project requirements and you will be provided with an estimate that identifies the total cost and estimated time schedule for the project. Please note that the design will only begin after we have received a NON refundable payment of 50% of the total estimated cost.

3. Your proof
URinvited will present an initial design for your review. We will discuss the design and any changes you may wish to make. Once the changes are integrated, the design will be submitted for your final approval. If no other changes are required and the design is perfect, a copy of the Final proof must be emailed back reviewed. This verifies that every detail is perfect: the layout, typestyle, spelling, grammar and punctuation. Once approved, URinvited is not responsible for any future changes or mistakes.

4. Production
Production will begin upon receipt of the Final Proof. All of URinvited creations are professionally printed and each invitation is meticulously assembled.
5. Shipping
Upon completion we’ll notify you via e-mail and collect the balance of your invoice plus shipping fee. At this time, please notify if you would like extra insurance or any other specifications.
We ship all orders (except Invitation samples) via UPS Ground. Once your box is weighed you will be invoiced for any applicable shipping charges. Shipping charges must be paid before your order can be shipped.
URinvited assumes NO responsibility for items lost in the mail, delays or damages caused by shipping carriers, weather or any damages resulting from the failure to receive your invitations or other stationary on time once your package has left our facility. Proof of shipment will be provided in the form of a tracking number once your order is shipped.
Samples are shipped via USPS mail with no tracking number.
Refunds and Exchanges
If for any reason you need to cancel your order, the 50% deposit is non refundable.

Returns based on color are not accepted. Computer monitors display colors differently from monitor to monitor. The actual color of our products and inks may be slightly different from that which is displayed on your monitor. If color is critical, please order a sample packet before placing your order. Each sample packet comes with our Color Chart; however, due to the custom nature of printing, these colors can vary slightly over time and may not match perfectly. We check each order prior to shipping to ensure everything looks beautiful and that the colors are as true as possible to our chart.
Due to the nature of our custom work, we do not accept any returns. We want to ensure your custom invitations are correct and you are happy with your purchase. We send digital proofs of all designs we make in order to get your approval. You get unlimited revisions and we can make any changes necessary to accommodate your order. However, once you approve the final proof and your order is printed, no changes can be made. If there is an error on our part, we rectify the situation at no additional cost to you. However, if the error is on your part, a reprint fee of $50 will be accessed IF your order has not been completed and shipped to you when the error or change was noticed. Please proofread your invitations before approving them.
