Ideally, your initial invitation consultation should occur 6-8 months before your event. Scheduling a consultation early on in the planning process ensures you have adequate time to make decisions on design and other elements, allows you to budget efficiently, and upon booking, guarantees you a spot on our production schedule.
We can also fulfill invitation jobs on a shorter timeline as our schedule allows. For jobs that have a shorter timeline, we will help guide you into an stationery suite that can be designed and fulfilled within the time you have. Please give us a call as soon as you know you will require our services so we can talk with you about your event.
For day-of stationery items, such as programs, place cards, seating charts, etc, we recommend 30 days advance booking.
For a wedding or mitzvah, invitations should be mailed 8-10 weeks in advance; for a party or shower, 4-6 weeks is usually sufficient. We recommend mailing invitations earlier if you have special circumstances surrounding your event, such as a destination wedding, an event during a holiday season, or an event where a large portion of guests are traveling a distance to get there.
If you are planning to send Save the Dates, we recommend sending these 6-12 months before your event.
