Once you place your order, you may opt to proceed to payment or click "for review". Then, we will contact you within 3-5 business days with the forms you need to fill out for the invitations. Once we receive the content and we approve it, then the design timeline starts.
Step 3: Design + Revision
We will send you your design for proofing within 5 business days of the content completion. There are two minor revision round included, conditions apply. Any additional changes will incur an additional cost, please see details in our Terms and Conditions. After the proof has been approved, we will send the invitations to print. Typically the invitations take 2-4 weeks for printing and additional 1-2 weeks for calligraphy and assembly. See the timeline here.

Types of Papers
All of our papers can be used for any of the printing types. We also print on acetate and acrylic.
These are our top choice for classic invitations. Our house paper has light texture and comes in off-white or a creamy ivory. Artist may suggest the paper to be used, to fit your invitation design. Vellum paper is smooth and semi-transparent.
Depending on the color chosen, cardstock comes in 220-350gsm. Texture is also specified beside the color names -- smooth, textured, shimery, and so on. These are subject to availability. View the paper options here.
The handmade paper is made one by one and has deckled edges. As such, it only comes in specific sizes (usually A5, and 4.25 x 6") and cannot be trimmed down. Colors are subject to availability. Handmade paper in particular is dependent on the manufacturer, they may change the quality at their own discretion.
An alternative to handmade papers, the edges are hand torn to achieve a deckle-edge effect. Commonly suggested if the client wants letterpress / print and debossed, as we do not accept this printing technique on handmade papers due to high paper wastage.
Die-Cut to shape
Cards are die-cut to any shape. Preferably smooth and uncomplicated, as the mold is manually carved to shape.
Our envelopes are die-cut and assembled in small batches. As such they do not have sticky seals underneath the flap edges. If you are mailing this through the post office, you can manually seal this yourself with glue or double-sided tape.
Some, not all, envelopes come with the Ink Scribbler logo based on artist's discretion. If you do not want a logo, please inform us.
High quality laser printing. Best for small runs and rush projects. With this printing method, we are unable to print metallic colors. For example, if gold and digital printing is chosen, it would be a yellow ochre color, instead of a metallic gold color.
Foil stamping is a method of applying colored foils to a surface for an elegant look. Much like embossing, foil stamping uses a combination of heat and pressure to stick foil, and is perfect for metallic colors. This type of printing stands out on darker paper as it is able to print white.
Text is printed then pressed with a metal plate with your design. The effect is similar to letterpress printing, where the text is sunken / recessed. Ink color is CMYK, not metallic. Terms also used for this technique are: stamped, pressed.
Text is printed then raised with a metal plate. Ink color is CMYK, not metallic.
The design is raised, without ink. Personally, I will not use this for complex designs. It looks before for simple, clean designs.
The design is recessed/ sunken, without ink. Synonymous with blind stamp and blind press.
Printing Color Choices: There are select colors for printing, available in this link here. If gold and copper are chosen, but foil printing was not chosen, then the flat color version of gold and copper will be used and will not have a metallic look.
Envelope Color Choices: There are select colors for envelopes, available in this link here. If handmade paper is chosen, then the envelopes will also be handmade.
