Minimum order quantity: 30 units
Foiled + Letterpress Invitations : 50 units
We always recommend ordering a slightly larger amount of invitations than needed to allow forerror when handwriting the invitations, or for guests you may have overlooked. Cartalia will be happy to print extra invitations for you if you run short, however we do have a minimum of 30, so it is better to ensure that enough invitations are ordered at the outset, as prices may increase after the initial order.
HOW IT WORKS :
Please note that we use 100% entirely your wording. This means you will have to provide the wording you wish to have on your stationery.
Once we receive the payment and the desired wording in PDF/Word we will commission a bespoke Artworks ( PDF ) - WE WILL NOT PRINT without your APPROVAL.

You will then be sent your personalised artwork via e-mail requesting your approval. This will need to be approved by yourslef before we can then procced with production. Your order will not be produced until this has been approved.
Please note that we can not accept approvals, amendments via a third party or over the phone. You must keep the same e-mail thread.
You will receive 3 complimentary changes your wording/layout. This is counted by e-mail not the number of amendments in each e-mail.
