FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

PROOFS

Our proofs allow you to review every printed component of your suite, and will reflect all wording as well as any custom color changes you have requested. And if you need to modify your proof for any reason, the first round of changes is always free. While most orders do not require any changes to the initial proof and are ready to move to production within a few days from the time an order is placed, we do suggest allowing yourself up to 2 weeks for proofing just in case you need to request repeated rounds of changes. Please be very sure to review your proofs extremely carefully. Once you’ve signed off, your order will go directly to production and post-production changes are potentially very costly and may even require a reprint of your entire order.

SHIPPING

Once your order is in production, it will ship within 10-15 business days. Most orders do ship far more quickly but we suggest allowing 3 weeks at the outside just to ensure we don’t miss any of your critical deadlines. By default all orders ship via fedex ground at no charge to you, and you will receive an email with all your tracking information the moment your order has shipped. Should you wish to upgrade your shipping to 2-day or next day air simply give us a call to make arrangements.

PRICING

Planning a Mitzvah Celebration is complicated enough without having to struggle through a complex pricing grid, so we’ve worked hard to make our pricing structure the simplest in the industry. Even easier? If you’d like a precise quote before you order, simply complete the order form for your favorite suite without any personal info and without clicking "add to cart." Voila. Instant pricing! When you’re ready to order, we accept visa/mc/amex/discover, and accept orders both online and over the phone. Please be aware that complete payment is due at the time of order, and any cancellations before final proof approval will be subject to a 25% cancellation fee. Orders in production cannot be cancelled, and sadly, we cannot accept returns on customized product.

COMPLETE SUITES | SINGLE PIECE PRICING

You’ll notice we only sell complete invitation suites, not single invitations. That’s because after 15 years in the invitation design + printing business, we’ve learned a thing or two about efficiencies, and thanks to our unique production processes we can create entire suites for the same price as many of our competitors charge for just a single invite and reply card. (We like to think of all those yummy extras as our little gifts-with-purchase.) Suites include invitation with lined envelope, thank you note with lined envelope, reply card with envelope, reception cards and bonus information cards perfect for shabbat dinners, Sunday brunches, travel details and more.

INK COLORS

Selecting your signature colors is often one of the most fun parts of planning your Mitzvah Celebration, and your color scheme itself is one of the most defining elements of your entire event. Since your Invitation Suite will set the tone for all that follows, we understand how important it is to have the perfect colors in your Invitation, too. That’s why we offer complete color customization on every one of our Invitations Suites AND every component of our Décor Packages. When ordering you’ll have the option to select from any of the colors in our ink color chart and you can replace all elements from text to backgrounds to patterns with the colors of your choice.

POCKETBACKERS + POCKETFOLIOS

While our basic Invitation Suites are utterly perfect all on their own, they stand out like never before when paired with our custom Pocketbackers and Pocketfolios. Pocketbackers frame our invitations like any standard backer, but with the added touch of a tidy little pocket on the reverse side to keep all your suite components perfectly organized. Pocketfolios add a fabulous layer of drama as your guests open their Invitations and feature a stunning personalized foilstamp on the front. Click below to see images of all our gorgeous matte + metallic Pocket Paper options, but remember, nothing beats being able to see and touch for yourself, so our Sample Kits contain a swatch of every single Pocket Paper we offer...be sure to order yours today.

ENVELOPES

Our envelopes are made from lighter weight versions of our gorgeous Pocketpapers to ensure a perfect match every time. And of course our invitation and thank you note envelopes feature coordinating linings. But the papers themselves are only half the story. The best part? We take care of all the work. Need your Reply Cards addressed? Done. Want your return address on your Thank You Notes? Done. Want your guests' addresses printed for you? And...done! When you place your order online you’ll have all kinds of great options to ensure your envelopes will arrive at your doorstep perfectly ready to mail. And if you’d prefer to have your own professional calligrapher take care of some or all of the above, not to worry – all envelope options are offered a la carte so you can choose the level of service that’s exactly right for you.

HEBREW

If there are any aspects of your Invitation Suite that you would like in Hebrew – the name of the Bar or Bat Mitzvah, his or her Torah portion, even a favorite quote - just let us know. Although we don’t have a clever way for you to input Hebrew characters online, you are more than welcome to include a transliteration in the notes section of your order or email or fax us the particulars. A very basic transliteration chart is attached for your convenience. (Please note that while our staff is reasonably literate in Hebrew we do request that you send us the exact spellings of any Hebrew text you would like to ensure there are no errors.)

TABLETOP, DANCEFLOOR + LOUNGE DECOR

In addition to our gorgeous Invitation Suites, we offer perfectly coordinated Mitzvah Décor pieces for every suite we sell, all of which can be customized to match your dream color palette. Our options include placecards, table number signs, menu cards, coasters, oversized dancefloor and wall decals, photo backdrops, event signage and more. (And don’t worry if you don’t see exactly what you want on our site – we’re always busily uploading more goodies - even if the item you're looking for isn't yet online that doesn't mean it's not available.)

LETTERPRESS, FOILSTAMPING + CUSTOM DESIGN

From Letterpress to Foilstamping to Diecuts and more, if you’ve seen it in the world of Mitzvah Invitations, we’ve done it. Virtually every suite we offer can easily be Letterpress Printed or Foil Stamped (by custom quote) and if you’re craving something even more unusual, we’re always happy to take on a fabulous new project as our schedule allows. (While we can’t guarantee we’re always available for custom design jobs, you know we’ll always do our very best to make those Mitzvah dreams come true!)
