When should I place my order?
We recommend you allow 6-7 weeks for the order, design and production process for our collection suites and encourage you to place your order as soon as you have prepared content and finalised guests.
For day of and thank you stationery, please allow 3-5 weeks for the design and production process dependant on your requirements and printing technique.
Generally, we recommend Save the Dates are sent out 6-8 months prior, and invitations 6-8 weeks before the wedding date. For destination weddings, we recommend 12 months for save the dates and 3 months for invitations.
I need my order sooner! Can I rush the order process?
Yes, in most cases we are able to assist you if you require an order sooner. Please get in contact to discuss your requirements and we will endeavour to work with you to meet your deadline.
Rush orders attract an additional fee of 20%. Shipping may also need to be expedited to get your order to you sooner and this will be quoted in addition to our standard rates.
Can I see a mock up of my design before I place an order?
We understand that you may be eager to see how your content and wording will fit within our collection designs, however we do not offer digital proofs until your order has been placed and we have reached the design stage.
Design and layout options are fixed and used to guide each design. However, in respect of individual content and wording, our process is flexible and all our typography is carefully placed and thoughtfully designed to ensure each piece of stationery is perfect.
Can I use a design for a different purpose than intended?
If a design appeals to you and you wish to use it as a basis for the design of another item of stationery, please contact us to discuss your requirements further. Generally, the changes will fall outside of our normal scope and attract an additional fee for setup and design. However, we are more than happy to accommodate this.
What are the design options I can modify for you collection suites?

Do you offer bespoke designs?
Yes — subject to our current workload and schedule, we would love to work with you to create a bespoke design. Please get in touch.
How many revisions are included when I place an order?
Two rounds of revisions are included during the design stage. We find that this is a sufficient amount to ensure that the items are exactly as you would like them.
However, we are happy to accommodate additional revisions and update our schedule and timeframes accordingly. Additional revision fees are applicable at the discretion of Paper Paper.
What printing techniques do you offer?
We work closely with a modern printing studio and offer high quality bespoke digital, letterpress and foil printing.
Digital printing offers a classic, simple finish and is the most cost effective print method.
Letterpress printing is a type of relief printing that produces a beautiful tactile impression of the design onto the paper.
Similar to letterpress, foil printing is a type of relief printing that creates a beautiful subtle imprint with a crisp,metallic ink.
What paper do you print on?
Our paper is premium, uncoated and the highest quality paper specific to the printing technique utilised. It also has a slight texture and/or dry hand, cotton feel and is beautiful to touch. It is available in different weights and colours specific to the printing technique you have chosen.
We are also able to source beautiful hand made recycled cotton paper and envelopes.
Can I purchase a digital only file of your designs?
We prefer to arrange printing so that we can ensure our designs are printed to the highest quality and on our preferred paper stocks. Printing and paper quality can be vastly different and we ensure we only work with the best in the industry.
Do you offer websites?
Contact our studio to discuss your requirements further.
I need to make a change to an order I have already placed, is this possible?
We encourage you to be sure about your final selections before confirming an order. Whilst we are able to accommodate changes up until you have given approval of design proofs prior to production, in some cases, change fees will apply to certain adjustments. We are unable to reduce quantities after an order has been confirmed.
If requested changes alter the scope of the project (i.e printing technique), a variation quotation will be supplied and invoiced upon approval.
Please review our terms and conditions for further information.
I need a higher quantity than what I ordered. What do I do?
Please get in touch as soon as you can regarding your order. Depending on the stage of your project, additional setup costs and shipping charges may be applicable.
If your order has already been finalised, per unit item price may be higher than your original order.
We recommend ordering extra copies to save for keepsakes and any last minute guest additions or changes.
I need to order less than I initially ordered. What are my options?
Once an order has been placed, we are unable to reduce the quantity of an order. Please consider the amount you have ordered prior to finalising payment.
