FAQ

How long is the order process?

The ordering process for the Blue Pumpkin Calligraphy House Collection typically takes 6-8 weeks. For the bespoke wedding stationery, the process takes around 8-12 weeks from design through to delivery.

Are envelopes included?

Yes, you have a choice of premium-coloured envelopes to choose from.

Do you have a minimum order?

Yes, the minimum order is 30.

How will you deliver my stationery?

All orders will be posted using a tracked and insured service. Your postage will be added to your final invoice (typically in the region of £30 pounds). You will receive a tracking code via email once the package has been sent.

Can we see the stationery before it is printed?

Rest assured; digital proofs will be provided to allow you to check over all the details before your stationery heads to the printer. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure all details are correct, including spelling and grammar prior to print.

Can I have different wording on my wedding stationery?

Absolutely, I am more than happy to offer suggestions! This is just one of the ways we can customise your wedding stationery to make it feel more personal to you.

How many invitations will we need?

The general rule for wedding invitation quantities is one per household. I also recommend ordering 5-10 spare invitations – just in case there are any changes in the guest list or if any you post get lost in the mail – it happens! I would also recommend ordering around 20 percent extra for envelopes if you are addressing them yourselves by hand, as address mishaps can also happen.

Are envelope liners supplied with the envelopes?

Although some envelopes are photographed with liners, these are not included in the order. However, they can be added on to your order as a finishing touch.

What can be customised for the invitations in the Blue Pumpkin Calligraphy House Collection?

  • The font
  • The colour palette
  • The paper type
  • The envelope colour
  • The printing method
  • Adding finishing touches (envelope liner, wrap, wax seal, ribbon, custom venue illustration ect)

Will my printed invitations match the colours I see on the screen?

I will always endeavour to match the colours shown on the digital proof as closely as possible. However, both monitor colour and printed ink are variable, and therefore I cannot guarantee an exact match.

When should I order wedding invitations?

I recommend starting the Blue Pumpkin Calligraphy House Collection ordering process 4-6 months in advance, while I recommend beginning the bespoke process 6-12 months before your wedding.

What kinds of paper do you use?

All of the invitations are printed on card stock that is a minimum of 300gsm for that high-quality, luxury feel. The card used is recyclable, biodegradable, has FSC and EFC certification. All the handmade paper used is crafted utilising recycled cotton, ensuring a positive impact on the environment.

Can The House Collections Be Customised?

You will find an array of ways to customise each suite from the Blue Pumpkin Calligraphy House Collection so that it truly reflects your love story, including:

  • The Print Finish: Digital Coloured Ink, Digital Foil or Hot Foiling
  • Colours: Ink, Card Stock, Foil & Envelopes
  • Finishing Touches: Vellum Wraps, Wax Seals, Hand-Dyed Silk Ribbons etc.
  • Extra Personalisation: Illustrations & Monograms (Please note: these are at an additional cost)

While the majority of the suites from the Blue Pumpkin House Collection can be customised, please note that designs with watercolour elements cannot be printed onto coloured card stock (however, you are able to choose an alternative white card stock).
