What is Assembly?

We offer assembly of most invitations that are layered or that have embellishments (for example the Versailles or Victoria Damask invitations). Assembly means that we will adhere each layer of the invitation together or tie any bows or ribbons. If you order a Pocket or Bloom, all of your layers will be mounted directly onto the Pocket or Bloom, unless otherwise specified. If you order an invitation with ribbon, your ribbon will be cut and attached to your invitation. Assembly does not include inserting your invitation and accessory cards directly into your envelopes.

We do not assemble any accessories such as seals, etc. If you are assembling yourself, we recommend a strong, thin double sided adhesive to attach the different layers of the invitations. Please DO NOT use any type of "wet" glue, since you don't want the cardstocks getting damp or wet which can lead to wrinkling and/or buckling, and in some cases we have found with rubber-cement glue, the actual letters falling off your invitation!

Proofing

You'll put a lot of time and thought into what your invitation looks like and what it says. You'll probably have looked at it so many times; you might not notice the mistakes. Be sure to ask a family member or friend to review the draft of your invitation before you give the "go ahead" to print. Some things to check (and re-check!) for:

  • Is everything spelled correctly?
  • Is the date correct?
  • Is the location name spelled correctly?
  • Are any addresses, maps and directions current?
  • Are the typestyle and ink color what you ordered?
