Once you place your order on our site, you will then send your program/invitation/menu/escort card/etc. details to us in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will send the actual text to be included on your stationery, as well as any monograms, designs, or design inspirations you want to be included on the stationery (if you aren't using one of our designs). We recommend downloading the petal fan template to make sure your text fits within the allotted space. If you are ordering escort cards, you will need to download our excel spreadsheet to enter the names and table numbers as you would like them to appear on your cards.
Once we receive all of your details to be included on your stationery, we will put together an electronic template for you and will send it to you via pdf or jpeg file format in an email for your review. Please allow up to 10 business days to receive your electronic proof. We will make any changes you have to the proof, and once we receive your approval on the proof, we will make a hard copy sample and will send it to you in the mail. You can still make changes once you receive the sample in the mail. After all requested changes are made or approval is given on the sample, the final programs are printed. The whole process takes approximately 4-5 weeks, but can be up to 6 weeks during the busy spring and summer months.
For expedited orders, a picture of the sample will be sent via email instead of in the mail to cut down on time. In some cases, for very quick turnarounds, there is only enough time to send an electronic proof.
Samples are not sent for escort card orders since the turnaround time is so fast. An electronic template will be sent via email.
