2020/21 AVAILABILITY UPDATE
Right the dreaded availability update, probably the best thing to start this would be to remind people that invites get sent by you at approx. 6 – 8 weeks prior to the wedding, that’s the standard, but then if there are invites to go abroad etc., this will have to be taken into account…
We aim to hand orders over at approximately 10 weeks, now this is all adjustable to your requirements, but this would be the norm! But don’t forget… we need a bit of time on our end lol! For designing, customising, stock etc. etc.… so we ask for your info and guest list etc. 6 weeks prior to that! So really the whole process goes into 5th gear at 16 weeks before the wedding, or 4 months if you’re that way inclined! So as you can see time slips away extremely fast… so for example… someone getting married at the start of June next year, it will be February we will be going full steam… so basically 2020 melts away lol!
As with each and every couple we really want to make sure your stationery is individual and unique… this also takes time, so this doesn’t mean you can happily order at 4 months lol! We need to know what’s happening by then… so this is why most orders are placed a year + ahead of the wedding.
Now I often get messages and mails that go like this…
“I want to order… I’m not getting married till (insert month here) next year… but I don’t know what I want”
In this situation there are a couple of options –
Secure your date for £50 that’s your work slot booked, and then we will keep you organised!
- or -
If you know the format of the invite… so a card, laser cut etc. etc.
we can price it up and then closer to the time tweak the details!
The benefits of ordering early are you get this year’s prices… like each and every business our suppliers can sometimes increase their costs year on year, so this ends up going back up the chain and altering our costs slightly, once you pay a deposit to us… your cost is locked in!
So anyway… enough rambling! check out the below... with this fun key system lol
