COLORS
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Chose between our color palette or a color of your own. For a custom color send us a link to the website that displays your color swatch or email it to us. We cannot guarantee an exact match, but will come as close as we can. Colors viewed on screen are not precisely the same color when printed.

90 lb. linen texture (white)
100 lb. metallic pearl (almost ivory)
100 lb. 100% recycled matte (white)

See thumbnails above for close-up images of each paper’s texture and envelope options. Standard white A7 envelopes are included with every order. However, we also offer linen and pearl textures at an additional cost, see pricing above.

Colors may vary slightly depending on which paper you choose. We have a sample pack available to purchase for $5. In this pack you will receive:
• 2 4x5.5 size cards with our color palette printed on the front and back
• 2 5x7 generic invitation design samples

Each size is printed on linen and metallic pearl papers. Sorry, not all invitation designs are available as samples. You may purchase the sample pack through our shop.

OTHER CARDS AVAILABLE

We can customize anything else you may need. Separate reception cards, separate direction cards, thank you cards, bridal shower invites, save the date cards, individualized stationary, etc. are all available upon request. These are all 4x5.5 sized cards and have the same pricing as above. 4x5.5 bi-fold cards are also available starting at $65 per box of 25.

RETURN ADDRESS PRINTING
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
We can print return address on the back flap of the invitation envelope for $5 per 25 envelopes. It’s 75¢ per envelopes for the recipients address to be printed. Please note that printing on metallic pearl envelopes require clear labels instead of printing directly on the paper.

SAMPLES AND CUSTOM DESIGN NOTICE
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Sometimes I have a few extra cards sent to me from my printer from your order. In such case I may use them as samples, but if you'd rather not have me send yours out please let me know and I'll just keep them in my portfolio. I black out any sensitive information. By using extra printed invites it helps keep the cost of my sample pack down. :)

If you have a custom design made I may post it in my shop for other customers to purchase, but I will change all of your information. This keeps the cost down for custom design. If you want a one-of-a-kind design it will cost $125.

Please contact Teresa at ts [!at] designerpi.com or convo me with any questions.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
You may pay by check, PayPal or credit card (through PayPal). For wedding invitations an initial deposit is required for all orders and will be applied to the final total. Once the design is approved your order will be printed as soon as the rest of the payment is received. It will then be shipped to you, it takes approximately one and a half weeks from the time you approve the design until you receive the package.
Shipping
Shipping costs include cost of shipping materials, insurance, postage and handling fees. Your order is packaged with care so it arrives to you safely. I ship via Priority Mail, so once it's sent it should arrive in 2-3 days. The customer is responsible for custom fees for international orders.
Refunds and Exchanges
I include shipping insurance in the cost of shipping to help protect you from anything that can happen to your package while in transit. Because the designs are customized, returns and exchanges are not available. If colors are a concern order a sample pack from our shop or order a custom printed proof of your invite for $25. Colors are not guaranteed to be an exact match, but I will try and come as close as possible.
Additional policies and FAQs
FAQs:
Q: How do I order from you?
A: Go to the top of this page and read "Ordering Process".

Q: What is the turnaround time for invitations?
A: Anywhere from 3-6 weeks, depending on how quickly you approve your design.

Q: Can you change the colors shown on the invitation?
A: Yes, any colors may be used in place of what's shown in my shop.

Q: Do you offer color envelopes?
A: I can order them, but they are not guaranteed to match the color of the invitation exactly. I recommend using a complimentary color envelope instead of trying to match the color.

Q: How much extra are RSVP envelopes?
A: Standard white triangle flap one’s are free. Linen, metallic pearl or any other custom color cost extra.

Q: Do you design programs, escort cards, table numbers, etc.?
A: Yes, I offer programs, table numbers, place cards and menus. If there is something else you’re looking for you may ask and see if I’m able to do it. I’ve started designing table seating charts, but it’s not on my pricing list right now. They’re typically around $75.

Q: Can I get a custom printed sample of what my invitation looks like?
A: Yes, it’s $25 for the invitations or $20 for the rsvp card. You may have your text placed as well, but I must warn you that I write "sample" over the design. If you decide you like the sample and have no changes I will add the $25 into your total balance and order the rest after payment has been made. However if you end up wanting changes made you forfeit the $25 and it will be added to your total order.

Q: Why does it cost so much for a custom sample?
A: The printing company that I use requires a minimum purchase amount for things to be printed.

Q: Do you ship outside the US?
A: Yes. The cost depends on the weight of the package. Typically it’s anywhere between $25-45.

Q: Why does it cost so much for shipping?
A: Paper weighs a lot, average orders are about 5-7 lbs and larger orders can be up around 13 lbs. I also try to take into account the cost of my supplies and my time for packaging.

Q: Is there sales tax?
A: Only to Minnesota residents, 6.5%.
