The cost of our basic sample pack is $10. The pack contains a great mix of our designs and colours so you can get a good feel for our print quality and finish. Unfortunately, our bespoke range is not included in the sample packs, however may be able to be leased out for a fee when we are feeling generous.
HOW IT WORKS
As most clients have different needs, it is one of the challenges to have an online presence with all elements. However, once you’ve chosen your preferred collection, we’ll get back to you within 2 days and obtain all the info we need to provide you with a proper quote.
If you’re happy with the quote, we’ll send you a new client form worth filling out and invoice you for payment. After payment is made, we do a happy dance and start on preparing the artwork.
You’ll receive a digital proof within a week. This is a good time to let us know if any changes are needed to the copy.
Once you approve the artwork, we send it off to print, order your envelopes and any other items. See production timeframe for more info on timings.
We’ll either ship the goods to you or if you opted to arrange a pick up, we’ll have it prepped and confetti’d up ready for you.
To keep our prices reasonable we provide your invites unassembled. With the exception of our wraps, these come finished (you’re welcome). However, we are more than happy to assemble them for a few extra bits of dosh. Let us know if you’d like us to do this.
With our years of experience with different substrates, we’re pretty good at selecting the appropriate stock for each design.
It is good to know we do not print any of our wedding invitations on anything less than 480gsm. This is because we want the quality of the stock to match the quality of invitation. Our prices may seem high but please factor this in when making your decision on stationer.
Fees may or may not apply when changing your selected collection’s design/layout and are up to our discretion. Minor typographic and content changes do not incur additional fees, nor do colour changes. Further changes to designs are quoted as required at a rate of $70 per hour.
Our minimum quantities for each item can be found on each item’s page in the QTY field.
Please confirm final quantities before placing your order, Sparklers & Confetti does not refund requests for lower quantities than ordered. In the event you would like to increase your item quantities, we will issue an invoice to account for this additional cost, however this may not always be able to be accommodated without affecting production times or minimum quantities after a second order has been placed. We recommend ordering at least 10% of extras just in case you need more invites, as the printing prices for low quantities are much higher than your initial batch.
REPRINTS OR ERRORS
Sparklers & Confetti will endure to make sure all spelling is correct but cannot be held responsible for any typing errors noticed after the proofs have been approved.
Your approval in writing via email acts as final approval of the designs exactly as they appear within the Digital Proof. Changes requested beyond this point will incur reprinting fees. In no event will Sparklers & Confetti be responsible for incorrect text that has been approved by the customer, so please check the digital proof carefully!
Any amendments made after approval and printing will incur an extra charge. Please notify Sparklers & Confetti immediately if you notice any errors on your stationery once you have received it.
If there are errors discovered within the text after the digital proof has been approved, Sparklers & Confetti will revise the design without charge, however the customer will be responsible for the re-printing of the printed material at a 30% discount of the original cost of the item(s).
If final prints do not match the designed content represented in the Digital Proof that has been approved, we will offer a reprint of the order free of charge.
We have a range of fonts to choose from so if you would like to use an alternative, just ask! However, not all of our designs in our signature range will suit all of the fonts in our list. Each of our designs has been carefully chosen to suit the specific theme of the invitation. We will guide you towards making the right choice of replacement font and suggest other options from our list that will work best.
Please do not ask to supply you our fonts. We do not disclose font types under any circumstances to protect our design work and further print revenue.
If you would like a map illustration created or one of our thank you card illustrations included in your order you must supply us with a screen capture or website link of the venue that has a map for us to re-draw. You must highlight to us any specific landmarks or other information you would like included. Map artwork does incur a custom design fee. Please enquire regarding pricing on these illustrations.
HOW IT WORKS
Our custom service is for clients who want something different and within the style that Sparklers & Confetti is renowned for. It may be that you want to reflect your wedding styling closely in the stationery, or you have a particular idea in mind that you want us to bring to life.
The process starts with a consultation over the phone or in person. We discuss what you’re looking to achieve with your wedding stationery and styling, which allows us to put together a quote. We ask you to send a pinterest board of what catches your eye so we can get into your head and be sure we are on the same path.
Once the quote is approved and payment paid, we get started on creating your dream stationery.
We then design an invite which matches this look and feel and allow 3 x rounds of changes to the artwork. Once finalised, we then we roll out the look and feel across all your stationery pieces.
We will make suggestions in regards to printing process to give you the desired effect. If any changes you make affect the price we originally quoted, we will notify you before commencing. Unfortunately with the nature of being bespoke, this can affect the final price.
Any additional changes past the allocated 3 rounds of changes, may incur extra design fees quoted on a case by case basis at a rate of $70 per hour, billed in 1 hour increments.
