WHAT COMES IN A "SET" OR A "SUITE"?
Each suite comes with a pocket folio with artwork tag (square or diamond shape), an invitation, a reply card, a reply envelope (addressed), an enclosure card, outer envelope (including return and guest address in digital calligraphy) and matching satin ribbon. You can see exactly what pieces come with the invitation by clicking through the image variations thumbnails on each page.

DOES THE PRICE INCLUDE PRINTING AND ASSEMBLY?
Yes, all of your invitation pieces will come printed with your information and completely assembled.

WHAT KIND OF PRINTING IS USED FOR THE INVITATIONS?

All pieces are flat offset printed. For letterpress or foil printing options, please contact us.

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM ORDER?
The minimum order is 25 invitations.


ARE THE REPLY CARDS, REPLY ENVELOPES, ENCLOSURE CARD, OUTER ENVELOPES AND RIBBONS I SEE ON THE GALLERY PAGE INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?

Yes, absolutely.

DOES IT COST EXTRA TO CHANGE THE COLOR OF THE INVITATION?
No. You can change any of the colors on the invitation artwork, the outer folio, ribbons or envelopes.

WILL I SEE A PROOF OF MY INVITATION BEFORE IT'S PRINTED?
Yes. Once your order is placed and we receive your wording, we will layout the invitation pieces with your information and email a pdf for review. We provide unlimited revisions until your invitation is just right. Nothing gets printed until you give us your final approval. Please be aware that you are responsible for making sure everything is correct during the proofing phase. You should always have more than one person review the proofs as sometimes it can be difficult to catch small details. If something goes to print with a typo or mistake and it is on the approved proof, we are not responsible (you will be charged for the cost of paper and printing again if you choose to reprint). However, If something happens and there is a mistake in the printed piece that was not on the approved proof, we will reprint and ship at no charge to you.

CAN THE FONTS BE CHANGED ON THE INVITATIONS?
Yes. Each font has been chosen to best suit the style of the invitation, but we will be happy to provide other alternatives for you to see that will complement the style of the invitation. 

WHAT IF I WANT TO USE ANOTHER PIECE OF ARTWORK ON THE INVITATION?
That's fine with us. You can send us the artwork you would like to use, or we can help you find something that will fit your theme. An extra set up fee will apply. Please call us to discuss details.

CAN YOU OFFER ME A DISCOUNT IF I ORDER MORE INVITATIONS?
Yes. The price is $15.00 per suite/set for up to 100 invitations and then is discounted incrementally. The shopping cart is programmed to reflect these quantity discounts. If you do not need a piece (such as the enclosure card, or rsvp) we will mark down the suite appropriately. If this is the case, call us so we can create a custom invoice for your set.
 

WHERE DO I FIND PRICES FOR COORDINATING MENUS, PLACE CARDS OR THANK YOU CARDS?
Give us a call or drop us an email. We'd be happy to quote you a price. 

IS SHIPPING INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?
No. Since every order is different, we will invoice you for shipping separately when the invitations are ready to be mailed. You may use US priority mail (insured), UPS or Fedex. Let us know which you would prefer. Payment for shipping must be received before the order will leave the studio.

IS TAX INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?

Carciofi Design is located in California, subsequently we are required to charge sales tax to orders shipped within the state. No taxes will be charged to orders shipping outside California.
