2 | Find a pre-made template that can be customized to suit your font style, wording, and color needs.
Look for an invitation template that includes all pieces of the invite. (invite, response card, info insert) Many stationers will customize their templates for you at no additional charge. Some will even allow you to pick pieces of a few different invites to create one you love. Before you purchase, make sure they are able to do what you need them to!
We offer many pre-made templates that are fully customizable. Simply tell us what you need changed in the 'note to seller' at checkout!
3 | Buy coordinating printables to create a cohesive look.
Many online stationers, like us, offer affordable printables to match their templates. These are often bundled together and can also be customized to match your font & colors.
Aceti Design Co. offers many pre-made bundles of printables for all kinds of occasions. Check them out here.
4 | Ask your stationer if they can arrange a custom package for you for the signage you need.
If you don't see any printables with the wording/color/style you need, shoot your stationery designer an email! They will most likely be happy to design a package that'll include all the signage you need for an affordable price.

5 | Ask your stationery designer about print packages.
Most stationery designers offer print packages, or if you don't buy directly through them, they may suggest a quality print service they've previously worked with. Most of the time, stationery designers offer low prices for quality printed products you would never get from Staples of Office Max. They may also lower the price if you're purchasing a bigger package from them.
Our pricing starts as low as .30 per card!
6 | Make a list of anything else you may need.
Need a calligrapher to address your envelopes? Many stationery designers include word doc template to print your envelopes, and many are preset in gorgeous calligraphy fonts. Ask your stationer about anything else you may need - they may offer it to you at a discounted price or even throw it in for free!
