Frequently Asked Questions

What occasions do you design invitations for?

Beginning in 2019, RSVP Love specializes in only custom wedding stationery. From Save the Dates, to your invitation suite, to all of your day of print and even thank you cards!

Can you design other printed pieces for my event?

I’m kind of obsessed with coordinating pieces!! They are the best way to personalize your event and make a big impact! I’ll work with you to make your event feel cohesive with other print including: Programs, menus, favors, place and escort cards, table numbers, signs and other custom pieces to give your special day an extra touch of personalization.

When should I order my invitations?

For wedding invitations we recommend our initial consultation take place at least 4 to 6 months before you would like your invitations sent out. The earlier the better. Save the date design should begin 2 months before your mailing date—which is usually 8–12 months before your event. Turnaround time after approval varies on each order, but typically is within 3-4 weeks. RSVP Love does not take on every couple due to the custom nature of creating and the hours involved per client.

When will my invitations be sent out?

I create a custom timeline for each couple, so you don’t have to do any of the guessing of when things should be mailed! Each wedding is unique in needs, so I take multiple factors into account when creating your custom timeline. I do recommend sending wedding invitations 6-8 weeks before your RSVP’s are due. This gives you extra time to make your final list and provide us with guest information for other print materials, such as place cards or seating charts.

What other services do you provide?

With 12 plus years of experience and etiquette in the design and event industry, you will be guided from start to finish through the stationery process. To make your special day less stressful, RSVP Love assembles, prints your guest addresses, affixes postage, and personally delivers your invitations at the post office to ensure your invitations are well taken care of and hand cancelled!

Are you able to provide final samples?

Due to the custom nature of our designs and printing setup costs, we do not offer hard copy samples. Only digital PDF proofs are available. In some cases a digital printed proof is possible at a small fee. All artwork samples will be provided as PDF proofs and loaded into our client portal to view for your approval.

I’m on a limited budget. Can I afford to go custom?

I like to think of it as, can you afford NOT to go custom? The average time spent per invitation is around 60 hours. Including design, changes, printing, assembly, guest addressing and stamping. So much goes into the biggest event of your life and getting all of your guests the information they need! Using a professional service, versus an online template will give you peace of mind and extra time to invest into preparing for your marriage and other wedding planning needs!!

How much do custom invitations cost?

The minimum investment starts at $2,550 and includes guest addressing, return address printing, all assembly and post office drop off for a 5 piece custom suite (invitation, invitation envelope, rsvp, rsvp envelope and information card) at 75 quantity. All other quantities and custom pieces like wax seals, embellishments, different printing methods and other customizations are added separately to that base price. The average a couple spends is generally around $3,800. Taxes and postage are added onto your final bill. Prices are subject to change.

Can I take care of printing or addressing myself?

Unfortunately, we do not offer our artwork for personal use. We offer all of these services as part of your invitation package so you don’t have to lift a finger!! We do make exceptions for select artwork, like monograms, which can be purchased and used for materials relating to the event that we may not print or provide.

Can I make a change after sending to print?

We want everything to be perfect for you! Changes can be made after sending to print, however, any costs incurred will be billed accordingly. To avoid this, clients are responsible for all proofing. Please triple-check all aspects of your proof before signing off on your final approval.

Do you accept rush orders?

We do accept rush orders based on our current workload with a rush design fee. Please contact us and ask about rush scheduling.

Should I order extra sets?

Ordering extra is always recommended. Plan to order an extra 10-20% to allow for unexpected guest list additions, calligraphy errors and keepsakes. It is much more cost effective to order extras then to reprint!
