In the past, brides chose wedding invitations by looking at massive catalogues of invitations. These days, most brides choose invitations after having researched them on the Internet. When choosing wedding invitations online, it’s important to keep a few things in mind.
First, you’ll want to choose a stationer whom you can reach by telephone to ask questions, clarify pricing, ordering information and delivery timetables. Look for a stationer whose hours of operation are compatible with yours. If you’re ordering online, look for a printer who offers customer service amenities like live chat for quick questions, and an email address. Also look for a stationer who is responsive to questions, and provides quick replies.
Many online stationers offer the ability to “see” your wedding invitation. While this is helpful for design purposes, it’s also nice to have a sample printed up. Look for stationers who offer you the ability to print a sample invitation. You should expect to pay for a sample, but the cost should be reasonable. This allows you to see the quality of the invitation, the printing and the overall presentation of invitations you’re considering for purchase.
Look for stationers who offer a wide selection of invitations, fonts, and a range of pricing options. Also look for invitation lines that include matching Save-the-Date, RSVP and Thank You cards.
If you have no particular expertise in invitation wording, look for a site with an etiquette guide to help you choose the correct wording for your invitation.
Many invitation printers also offer do-it-yourself kits that allow you to print your own invitations at a reduced cost using your own computer and printer. DIY invitations can save money, however they may not have a professional look or feel about them, and they’ll be only as good as the printer you use.
