These invitations are perfect and even better in real life than I had expected! The ordering process wa really easy, and Sylvia was great to deal with. I submitted the design and wording we wanted and we got a proof for approval within 24 hours! There was only one mistake which was fixed quickly and then we had the invitations in less than a week! We have posted them to our guests and they love them. They really are something special! I highly recommend ala carte paperie. The designs are beautiful and the quality and service are excellent.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

To fulfill your order, you must provide us with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering.

The additional price charged will be the true cost for the additional cards.

Cards have a minimum order of 25 and are sold in increments of 25.
For our Standard Collection USA orders can be ordered "a la carte": any number of cards over 25.

Electronic proofing is standard among stationers and is a cost-effective and flexible way to review and make changes to your stationery before printing begins.
