Customised Wedding Stationery – How Does It Work?

One of the great things about our Wedding Stationery ranges are that they can be completely customised. I thought I’d take a moment to just run through the process of how this works. Our ranges are really flexible, and there’s a lot you get included, with no surprise costs involved!

Giftast Standard Price List 2019

Invitation Suites

All the items which make up our suites are priced individually, so you’re not sold a pack of anything, and you can be really flexible. For example, if you want to miss out Save the Dates and ask for RSVPs by text, no problem! You only need to buy what you actually want. 

customised wedding stationery - how does it work?

If you like a design, but it doesn’t fit your theme, then we can change the colours for you for no extra cost.

The cost on our price list per unit is the cost you pay. 

Want to include extra info on the invite? No problem – just let us know the text you want, and we will look at your options. It may be that we have to make a double sided invitation, or we might suggest you include an additional info card if you have a lot of information to share. We can mock up designs for your approval, so you know exactly what you’ll be getting when you order.

Again, this is all priced by unit, so no nasty surprises.

The same applies for adding any extra info to Save the Dates and RSVPs – just let us know what you want to include, and we will do our best to accommodate it on the original design, all for no extra cost.

Unit prices also include kraft and white envelopes, as well as a range of different paper finishes and double sided printing.

On The Day

We’ve talked here about what you might want to consider when you’re planning your On The Day Stationery – this also works using our range items. 

Just as with our Invitation Suites, everything can be personalised, from colours to text, to suit your needs. If you want a menu, even though we don’t have one of those in our samples, we can mock one up for your approval using the basic designs we already have, and it will be priced as per the price list. The same goes for any extra signs or notes you want to include on your day.

Elegant Place Cards

Want something different?

Our price list doesn’t include items such as stickers, belly bands or envelope liners. Simply contact us and ask for a quote, and you’ll be provided with a unit price based on your needs. If you want these to match range items there will be no bespoke fee.

We also offer free consultations by Skype or phone, to discuss your wedding stationery ideas and requirements. Just drop us an email to book in.

Don’t forget, you can save 10% when you sign up to our Newsletter!

What Do You Need To Include On A Wedding Invitation?

What do you need to include on a wedding invitation? Now you’ve sorted your Save The Date, and your wedding prep is making good headway, it’s time to think about Invitations. Let’s start with the basics:

Date

Including Day, Month and Year. It’s better to be as specific as possible!

Northanger Abbey Stylish Wedding Invitations - What do you need to include on a wedding invitation? 

Time 

It’s worth considering including time of ceremony, time of reception, and time of “carriages”. This information will also be different depending on whether you’re doing separate day and evening invites. Here at Giftast, we can mix and match your invitations for no extra cost;)

Location (Ceremony & Reception)

Let your day guests know if they need to anticipate travelling between venues. Again, the information provided may be different depending on if you’re sending out separate day and evening invitations.

RSVP Details

Are you including a card, or asking people to reply by text/email? When do they need to let you know by?

Plus One

Who is invited? Are your single friends allowed to bring their current SO? Can the kids come? Specify now, to save awkward questions later, and from making your table plan more complicated than it needs to be!

Also worth considering…

Dress Code/Theme

Want everyone to wear purple? Going for a chilled out, shorts and sandals vibe? Going Gatsby? Now’s the time to let your guests know, so they can begin planning their outfits.

Gift Requests

Whether you have a gift registry set up, or want money for your honeymoon, or even nothing at all, let your guests know your plans.

Wedding Website

If you’ve too much information to include on your invitation and don’t want to include a separate information card, then you you might want to consider making a wedding website, and including the web address on your invitations. 

Taxi Numbers

Your more organised guests will bring the invitation on the wedding day, so they will have all the timing and location information to hand. Including taxi numbers is especially useful in areas with limited internet access.

Budget Wedding Invitation - What do you need to include on a wedding invitation? 

Recommended Local Hotels

Encourage forward planning and cut down on how many phone calls you get all asking the same question – include your recommendations for hotels, including any information regarding reserved rooms at your venue, if necessary.

Directions

Whether your guests are arriving by plane, train, or automobile, and even though a lot of people will just use Google maps, save your guests some time by including some directions to harder-to-find and more out of the way venues. A lot of venues will have this information on their websites, which you can use.

 

And then… anything you like! Every wedding is different and you need to think about what works for you. When DH and I got married, we had a morning ceremony, followed by a wedding buffet which we then left at 3pm to go on honeymoon. We included this information on our invites, to let the guests know what to expect, but also so they knew that the venue was still available for their use once we’d left. 

All I would say is, the more information you include, the less questions you’ll have to answer and the more time you’ll save!

Birthday Back-Ups – Multipack of Floral Birthday Cards

floral Birthday cards multipack

End your work birthday woes with this multipack of floral birthday cards.

If you have a job, friends, family or general acquaintances, you’ll know that it’s almost always someone’s birthday. If you’re anything like me, you almost always forget to buy a card and either have to sneak your name below someone else’s heartfelt sentiment, or be the worst friend/colleague/aunt they’ve ever had and give them nothing.

Cover every eventuality by stowing a pack or two of these cards in your desk drawer or handbag. With this mix of 5 different but equally pretty cards, you’re sorted in case of emergency. And spared the cost and time of a dash to the nearest supermarket to pick up the only card which doesn’t mention “love” anywhere on it. Because heaven knows you don’t “love” Andrea in Accounts. You like her, sure, but “love” seems a bit much.

Speaking of which, these cards are all left blank for your own message, so you can be as bland or inappropriate as you choose.

Pick up a pack here.
