FAQ'S - Announcement Cards & Baptism Invitations

WEDDING INVITATIONS & SAVE THE DATE'S

Timing will vary depending on which printing process you choose and whether additional items such as coloured envelopes are required to be ordered in. I recommend you allow between 3-5 weeks from the time your order is placed. Most digitally printed orders will be closer to 3 weeks, whereas foiling and letterpress will be closer to 6 weeks. If you do require a faster turn around please contact us as we may be able to accommodate based on capacity at the time.

We are based on the Sunshine Coast and ship to all of Australia and New Zealand. A postage quote will be required for shipping to NZ. I primarily use Australia Post however will on occasions offer courier shipping if this works best for your delivery address.

We are currently not offering a 'pick up' service.

Colour Changes ~ Are included and there is no extra cost. Watercolours, florals and foliage cannot be colour adjusted. Many of my designs can be printed on coloured cardstock too. Feel free to contact me anytime to discuss what colour mix you are wanting to achieve.

You can order a printed colour chart or Paper / Invitation Sample Pack be posted so you can be assured of how ink colours print (as what you see on your computer may not be a true representation of the printed colour).

Font Changes ~ We are also happy to change the fonts used in most designs, and offer 2 x proof options at the initial proofing stage to ensure you are happy with your font selection. Please note, certain printing techniques require particular font styles (foiling, letterpress).  

Layout Changes ~ The layout of any stationery designs which include florals and foliage cannot be adjusted. We have designed our floral stationery specifically around the beautiful elements.

Please refer to our T&C's for detailed information on colours and printing.

I offer a variety of paper/card stocks including printing on coloured and black card, buffalo kraft, and white textured card. I will always help you decide which option will suit your needs and the design itself the best. Detailed information on each of our stocks can be found HERE.

We often print guest names on invitations and menus. The option to add this and further details is available on each product page.

You may like to have different wording for groups of guests. We do not charge an additional design fee for this if it is just wording changes, however there is a printing fee for processing different files of AUD$45 per file.

Yes you can. Please choose any design and let us know that you are wanting to write on the back of your cards and we will adjust your design to suit.

ON-THE-DAY STATIONERY ~ WEDDING & BAPTISM

TO COME

GENERAL QUESTIONS

Smooth white envelopes are included with all stationery items that require an envelope, including birth announcement cards, baptism invitations, wedding save the dates, wedding invitations and rsvp cards, and all thank you cards.

We also LOVE ordering in specialty envelopes for those clients that are wanting coloured, textured and kraft. Specialty envelopes are not complementary nor held in stock, and will require a custom quote. 

Peach Perfect uses various professional, commercial printers who use machines offering the latest in digital printing technology. These printers create stationery pieces with brilliant text clarity and beautiful detailed images.

Throughout the past 12 years we have developed a strong relationship with printers who offer particular areas of speciality, for example, foil printing, signage, and letterpress. This means your items may be printed in Qld, Vic or even WA. All printing is done in Australia - we do not outsource to other countries. Only our envelopes are printed in-house majority of the time.

Absolutely! Many of my designs can be adjusted to include foil stamping, digital foiling and letterpress printing. Sometimes we may need to make slight adjustments to your design / fonts / layout to allow for these special printing processes which we are happy to do of course.

Detailed information on each of your printing options can be found under the 'Helpful Info' link at top.
All specialty techniques will require a custom quote at this stage.

All of our designs are protected by Australian and International Copyright Law. Therefore, to protect our designers from copying and theft, we do not release font information under any circumstances.

Unfortunately once I have received your approval to print no further changes can be made without requesting a new order. This is clearly noted in my Terms and Conditions. I will always accommodate a reduction in the cost to make the design adjustment and send a new file to print. As printers have minimum print quantities and set-up fees, you will be required to cover the cost of the minimum print run/quantity for that item.

The answer here is yes and no. In Australia our suppliers offer only a few options for envelope sizes. So if you are ordering an invitation or rsvp card, or birth announcement, then we must stick to standard sizing (A6, 5x7", 120x180mm and A5). 

Items that don't require an envelope can be printed to any size! For example, we offer circular reception menus, various sizes for place cards and signage etc. 

Standard pricing and sizes are included on my website however feel free to get in touch for a custom quote if you are looking for somehitn different.

I have spent many years building my network of printers who provide Peach Perfect with an array of printing opportunities through our Trade relationship. Peach Perfect is a "Design and Print" service. I do not print any other designers work. 
If you have had a small part custom designed for your stationery item such as a unique monogram, and you can provide your monogram in a format I can use, I am happy to do this (as long as you have the written approval to use the artwork in my design). If additional design time is required due to formats being incorrect, a fee of AUD$55 per hour will be charged.

Seriously, this is such a common thing and I am always doing my best to accommodate the last minute wedding rush!! Don't feel like this is just you!
Although most stationery takes around 2-3 weeks from the time I receive your order to the time you receive your gorgeous package, I can in some cases offer to RUSH your order. 

Our RUSH SERVICE does however depend on what you are ordering and obviously, your delivery details. It's always best to get in touch with me prior to ordering for a chat about your situation and whether I can work within your deadline.

COSTS, PAYMENT OPTIONS, DEPOSITS

We accept payment via direct bank deposit, Paypal and AfterPay. We feel that these forms of payment are safe and ensure our customers remain comfortable with their online transaction.

On placing an order you will be provided with your options and if you choose Paypal you will be redirected to the secure Paypal gateway to make your payment.

If you choose to pay via direct bank deposit, I will commence your design work once your payment shows in my account or you can email me a receipt from your bank to get started sooner.

The Afterpay option will not show on the product page but will appear in Checkout.

We are a little limited with offering part-payments via our website so please just choose to pay manually (via bank deposit) and let us know in your order form that you would like to pay a deposit first with balance later.

Conditions regarding non refundable deposits can be found HERE.

I am happy to help you decide which photo will work best with the design you have chosen. Please send through a maximum of 4 photos. Please compare the orientation of your photos to that used in the design ie. a photo in landscape shape may not work well if the design uses a portrait shape photo.

I will choose 2 photos I feel are the better quality or fit best within the design and you will receive an additional 'photo' proof to choose which you prefer.

Once you have approved the photo, I will commence personalising the design and send via email your first official print proof.

ENVELOPES & ENVELOPE PRINTING

Yes, smooth white (high quality) envelopes are complimentary with all orders that require an envelope. 

Can I get fancy envelopes?

Of course! We love going the extra mile with theming your occasion and offer various premium envelopes as an upgrade to your order.  After adding your stationery order to your Shopping Cart, please pop over to the WEDDING MENU at the top and choose "Envelope Upgrades". Here you will find our various envelope upgrade options. If you aren't sure which envelope size matches your announcement or invitation, please check out our Paper & Envelope page for guidance.

Yes, of course. Hugely popular for Wedding and Christening invitations, I offer printing in black ink on white or light coloured envelopes, and white ink on dark coloured envelopes. You will receive an initial concept / layout proof of your envelope design, as well as a complete proof of all your guest names and addresses. The additional cost for envelope printing is listed on each product. Please ensure you proof your envelopes carefully as any errors once you have approved us to print them will unfortunately incur a charge.

Yes! We can print guest names on any card or invitation. The additional cost for this is $50 per item and you will need to supply the names to us in a word or excel document. More information on personalising can be found here on our “Customising Your Design” page.

In order to preserve the integrity of our designs and our quality standards, most of our stationery is offered only as a finished printed product. This includes our wedding invitation suites. Peach Perfect does not offer invitation suites as print your own files.

Some items are offered as Print Your Own files, including our large format signage (seating charts, welcome signs) and our table numbers. The reasoning behind this is that commercially printing in smaller quantities can be very expensive due to print set up fees…we want to provide our clients with a more affordable option to have their reception stationery coordinate with their beautiful, printed invitation suite. We also believe that when displayed at the reception venue (generally in frames) the cardstock and printing quality will not be as ‘noticeably’ different. 

Yes we do! Very popular for Wedding and Christening invitations. I can custom design your envelopes to match your other stationery items, and always offer a minimum of 2 x design options for you to choose from. 

I can print in black ink on white or light coloured envelopes, and white ink on dark or black envelopes.

The additional cost for envelope printing is listed on each product. 

All stationery is generally 2-3 weeks from the time we receive your order to the time you receive your gorgeous package. In some cases, we can speed the process up a little and are always happy to let you know if this can be done with no additional charge. If you literally require your wedding reception stationery in under 10 business days, more than likely you will need to pay a RUSH ORDER fee.

 

We accept payment via direct bank deposit or Paypal. We feel that these forms of payment are safe and ensure our customers remain comfortable with their online transaction. On placing an order you will be provided with both options and if you choose Paypal you will be redirected to the secure Paypal gateway to make your payment

Absolutely not! We are a little limited with offering part-payments via our website so please just choose to pay manually (via bank deposit) and let us know in your order form that you would like to pay a deposit first with balance later. We will send you an invoice for a deposit of 30% of the total order and a final invoice just prior to going to print. We can also offer payment plans for those on a tight budget. This service is available to all customers with orders of $350 or more.
