Stationery FAQ

stationery FAQ

Stationery is RADesign's OG claim to fame. From wedding sets to birthday invitations, and anything in between, we've got you covered. Don't forget we are CUSTOM-tailored to your needs, so if you don't see it on the site, it doesn't mean it can't be done. Get to know the basics to working with RAD here. 

Cost

This is completely dependent on quantity as well as cards you may want with your set. Most brides need invitation, RSVP (mail back or postcard), and in some cases a details/accommodations card.

When you add an item to the cart, it will trigger a form that correlates with the product selected. This is how I obtain all of your information. Start your order here.

Tips and tricks:

  • Lower your overall costs on your dream invitations by printing on the back side of the invitation. The back is always so neglected! But it has great real estate for important information like hotel accommodations or day-of details. 
  • The site is mobile friendly, however, it is easier to do the checkout process on a computer for sake of sanity and completing the information accurately. 
  • You don't need to add it to the cart to see the cost. Cost is seen just below the name of the product.

Ordering

As soon as order is placed and paid in full, WE PLAY! The fun begins and the initial proof is to you in 24-72 hours. Lead time is dependent on how many jobs are ahead of yours. Proofing goes back and forth via email, with your input the entire way. We don't send to print until you're ready!

Tips and tricks:

  • Don't worry about purchasing EVERYTHING at once. Work on stationery first and come back for add-on's like signs, escort cards or seating charts.
  • Payment is due in full in order to process the order. Why you ask? Welp, your design is 100% custom, which means 2 hour average working time per design. My brides get my undivided attention, so it's important that we get the ball rolling and get those creative juices flowing! Plus, no delay to proof or print!

Paper

I offer a range of paper options, and typically "step it up a notch" on the paper selection. When I say paper, think finish.  So in other words, most places give you 100 lb card stock. RAD ranges from 110-200 lb in some cases. Schedule a consult or ask us what we can do!

Tips and tricks:

  • Thicker isn't always better, depending on how many enclosed cards you have, it can negatively impact your postage. However, once design is complete, I typically use my judgement on finish, we can have a consult, or I can send videos to show you detail in paper textures/thickness.
  • Be creative! Change up textures or weights. 

This cost is included when you build your order online. The envelope finish will, in most cases, match the finish of the paper for a cohesive and rich look.

Tips and tricks:

  • Don't be afraid to ask about envelope inserts or even color options!
  • Be sure to check out addressing options! From labels to imprinting, we can help make the process stress-free and easy-peasy!
