Design
Can I change the layout or design of the invitation I am interested in?
Absolutely! Clearly Invited specializes in custom stationery, and we love to work with our customers to tailor each invitation to perfectly reflect your individual style. All of our designs are flexible and interchangeable. If you’d like to adjust the layout or design, just indicate the changes you’d like made when you place your order. One of our design consultants will get in touch with you directly to fine tune your ideas. Don’t see exactly what you want in one of our existing designs? Consider working with our designers to create an entirely new custom design!

Can I put a monogram on my invitation, even if one isn’t shown online?
Absolutely! Clearly Invited specializes in custom stationery, and we love to work with our customers to tailor each invitation to perfectly reflect your individual style. All of our designs are flexible and interchangeable. Simply let the design consultant know which monogram you’d like to add and we’ll take care of the rest!

I have my own artwork, can Clearly Invited print it?
Generally, yes! As long as you hold ownership of the artwork or have written permission to use it. However, we prefer to take a look at your art files before we can answer that question confidently. Please contact us to discuss the details. Below is a list of files that we accept. (A file acceptance fee will apply.)

File Types we accept:
• Adobe Illustrator – .ai
• Encapsulated Postscript – .eps
• Adobe – .pdf
• Adobe Photoshop – .pds
• Adobe InDesign – .indd
• High Resolution JPEG – formatted at 300 dpi or greater Clearly Invited reserves the right to accept or decline a custom request based on the integrity of the files submitted.

Photos/file submission
What photo formats do you accept? (digital vs. hardcopy + file formats)
We accept both digital and hardcopy photos. JPEG files are the most standard file types and satisfy most digital requirements. While hardcopy photos are not ideal, we can scan and prepare them for you for a $25 fee. Contact us to let us know if you need to mail us a hardcopy photo.

How will I know if my photograph will print well?
Even if a photo looks fine on your computer monitor, it won’t necessarily print well. Professional printing presses require photos to be a 300 dpi (dots per inch) resolution or higher. To determine your photo’s dpi:

• Right click on the photo to view the photo’s “properties” and identify the photo’s dimensions (such as 1200×1800).
• Divide the digital dimensions by the photo’s physical dimensions (such as 4×6 or 5×7) to determine the dpi.
• For example, if your photo’s digital dimensions are 1200×1800 and its physical size is 4×6, divide 1200 by 4 and 1800 by 6 to equal 300 dpi.

Any image resulting in a dpi below 300 will print poorly with a grainy or blurry final image. Keep in mind that attempting to resize your photo may potentially distort the quality of the image. When using a photo taken by a professional photographer, it is best to ask the photographer for the original image, rather than attempting to copy it from a slideshow or preview. Your photographer should be able to provide the image in the appropriate resolution. This practice will also ensure that you have full permission to reproduce and use the photo!

What size should my photograph be?
Your photo should be a resolution of 300 dpi or higher.

Shipping
When will my order ship?
You will receive notification via email regarding your estimated ship date, or the date your order is scheduled to leave our studio, once your proofs are approved.

How much will it cost to ship my order?
Shipping costs range from $10 to $30 depending on your order subtotal.
Our standard method of shipping is UPS Ground. The cost of ground shipping is based on your order subtotal and the type of product you are purchasing. If you would prefer another method of shipping, please contact us.

How do I expedite my order?
There are 2 things you need to consider (and the costs associated with each) when choosing to expedite your order – RUSH Production and Expedited Shipping. Both options can be reviewed and selected when talking to one of our design consultants. RUSH Production is the option for the Clearly Invited Team to produce your order faster than our standard turn around time. See our RUSH Fees. Expedited Shipping is the option to have your order shipped from our door to yours utilizing a service faster than UPS Ground.

How much does Expedited Shipping cost?
The full cost for expedited shipping cannot be determined until we have prepared your order for shipment.

Order
When should I order wedding invitations?
We recommend that you order your wedding invitations 3 to 4 months before your wedding, and no later than 10 weeks before your wedding date. This time frame allows enough time for:

• Our Design Team to create your proofs
• Your review of the proofs and processing of any necessary edits
• Standard production to take place after your proof approval (7-10 business days for most products)

Ideally, you want enough wiggle room (2+ weeks) between the time your order is estimated to ship and the time you need to mail your invites.

Rush production is available if necessary. Please see our Rush Policies for details regarding a “rush” order. Custom Designs often need more time for collaboration and review. Please place custom orders 3-5 months prior to the wedding date.

Can I RUSH my order? What will it cost?
In most cases, we can accommodate rush requests. However, we reserve the right to evaluate an order’s complexity along with our current stock of materials and production schedule to determine if we are able to meet your needs. A fee of $125 will apply to all rush orders. Please remember that, even for rush orders, we always require proof review and approval before we will move your order into production.

Will I see a proof before my order is printed?
We want you to be totally satisfied with your order, and we understand that you want to see your order before it gets printed. To help make this happen, Clearly Invited gladly provides complimentary proofs for your order!

To maintain our exceptionally high standards for quality and customer satisfaction, it is important for our customers to understand and honor our proof system. Under no circumstances will Clearly Invited proceed with an order without an approved proof.

Can I place a reorder or order a few extra pieces after I’ve received my order?
It is extremely important for you to contact us ASAP if you discover that you need a few extra invitations or items in your order. We typically print a handful of extras for quality control purposes. However, we can not guarantee that overprints for your order will be suitable or available for you to purchase. When we do have extras, we keep them on hand for about 2 weeks before recycling them. If you need more of anything you have ordered, please let us know right away!

Should you discover that you need extras after our 2 week holding period passes, you will likely need to place a new order. Keep in mind that our minimum order is 25 pieces for most of our products.

Do you have a minimum quantity requirement?
Yes, we require a minimum order quantity of 25. Smaller quantities can sometimes be accommodated for an additional fee. Please contact us if you are interested in ordering less than 25 pieces.

Who do I contact if my order is incorrect or damaged?
Please contact us right away if any part of your order is incorrect or damaged. We ask that you inspect your order carefully once it arrives! If for any reason you are not satisfied with your order, contact us immediately (within 2 to 3 business days) so that we may evaluate your request and determine the best way to address it. We cannot repair, replace, or compensate for defective products if a complaint is submitted more than 14 days after the order has shipped.

What is your return policy?
Due to the customized nature of our products, returns and refunds will be considered on an individual basis. Rest assured, we believe in providing our customers with the highest quality products and we guarantee the quality of every item that we produce.

Our invitations are individually crafted and carefully inspected and we have a strong history of customer satisfaction. However, please examine your order carefully as soon as it arrives! If you find that an item is defective, please contact us immediately so that we can replace it for you. Errors made by Clearly Invited will be corrected immediately, at no cost to you.

If, for any other reason, you are not satisfied with your order, we will evaluate the issue and work with you to determine the best way to address it. Errors on your end, such as errors overlooked during the proofing process, must be corrected and reprinted at your expense, though we will attempt to discount the reprinted item for you, if at all possible. We cannot repair, replace, or compensate for defective products if the complaint is submitted more than 14 days after the order has shipped.

Can I cancel my order?
Cancellations made before proof approval will be subject to a fee of 35% of the total purchase price, plus any additional custom design fees charged. Orders canceled after proof approval will not receive a refund.
