Q: Is it best to do my printing in house or to outsource it? - Zara H.
A: Depending on the size of your business, outsourcing printing is usually cheaper than performing it in-house, due to their buying power on papers and inks, you will also have the added bonus of better quality print on bigger, more expensive printers compared with home printers. Also it may cut down the amount of time for hand finishing, if you can receive it already trimmed and scored, leaving you with more time to add the flourishes to it. While in-house finishing might put you in more control of the product, it is time consuming sourcing all the bits and pieces, but it a very good way to start off your business. Equally once you find a printer you know has the range and options you need and build up a good relationship with them, and you should be happy with the output each time. Remember to leave an extra few days in-between receiving the prints before you need to supply to your Bride, just incase you need anything reprinted or to make any tweaks.

Q: My customer is having an eco-themed wedding, any idea how I provide solutions for their stationery? – Ritchie
A: What a great stationer you are for going all-in on a couple’s theme! There are several options you can consider when printing, such as using recycled paper and soy ink, of course some of these are very specialist tools and you may need to look around and see if the colours are available that match your original designs. Alternatively, you can design around the tools that you have on offer. Here at printed.com, we are happy to be green, green, green! We have accreditations from international authorities, so print with us and rest assured that a little love was given back to the planet.

Q: I've recently had an 'on the day' stationery suite printed with you that included a table plan. The table plan was a very different colour to the rest of the suite despite me using the same CMYK codes. I was told this was due to the different print equipment. Would it be possible to put together a colour chart in the same way you do for your paper stock in the wedding sample pack please? Then it will be much easier to pick out colours that match the rest of the suite for the large format items. Many thanks
A: Thanks for getting in touch and this will be discussed with the team. In the meantime, we do offer colour charts on the back of the sample pack stocks, these can be found here – http://www.printed.com/contact-us Just select the "order sample pack" from the drop down options on the form. Thank you for the feedback and let us know if there is more we can help with! The printed team.

Q: My question is about your place cards. If I get your team to personalise the names for me can I provide the font I want used? Also how to I add some extra blank cards for last minuet additions?
A: For font types we recommend advising us on which font you wish to use on the customer notes section found on your order. We manually process every personalised order, therefore if we need further clarification on your order we will pick up the phone and get all the specifics from you. For blank products, all you have to do is order a few products that the number names you have provided to be used on the products, so if you provide us with 50 names and order 60 place cards, then 10 place cards will be blank when delivered to you, which is always helpful when it comes to last additions. If you want further advice then we recommend calling customer services on 0800 840 1430 and if you have already ordered, make sure to have your job reference order to hand and the name of the font you require. Thanks, the printed team.

Q: Where is the join on the belly band? I want information printed on the front and back and want to know if this is possible.
A: Hi Emily, Yes, you will be able to have information printed on the front and back as there is no join and the bands are delivered to you flat. This is so you can put these together with some overlap or if you choose, a direct join. I hope this helps and please, feel free to #showitoff to us on social media when it is done, as we love seeing your designs!

Q: I've been asked to use gold on some wedding stationery and I know attempting to create a gold colour digitally isn't all that great. I'm wondering if a gold colour printed on a pearlescent stock would give a better look and whether you have printed anything with 'gold' recently? Thanks, Claire
A: I recommend that you order one of our sample packs ( use the link in the right hand side of the page) as we do show the CMYK values of our suggestions for both gold and silver colours. It is on every stock so once she has the pack you can choose which paper works best for your needs. We get very good feedback on the results on the pearlescent papers especially with the sirio pearl oyster.

Q: I'm trying to work out the best cost effective way for me to offer wedding design sample packs which show my designs on them, with a range of paper options. Do you have any suggestions?
A: What we would recommend is that you order multiple designs for each stock so that you have an example of each design on each paper, rather than order just one design on one stock paper when desired. You are able to do this when ordering your designs prior to the upload stage, you are asked if you wish to print multiple designs or just the one. I hope this helps, for further advice call our customer support team on - 0800 840 1430

Q: Is it possible to order extra envelopes with wedding invitations? I usually give customers a few extras - this saves them coming back to me for extras when they inevitably spoil a few at the addressing stage. Saves time in the long run.
A: Hi Barbara, at present you are only able to order the same amount of envelopes as products, but we will pass this information over to the team as you raise a very interesting point!

Q: I need to print a white invitation design on Kraft paper. How can I save this to PDF without losing the transparent background?
A: At present we do not print with white ink, therefore we are unable to print white ink onto Kraft paper. What we would recommend if you wish to print on kraft paper with a white ink effect, is that you design a kraft paper back ground in your design and have this printed onto white card to give the desired finish.

Q: Do you print tags?
A: There are loads of ways you can use printed.com products to create tags! One of our favourite ways is to upload artwork and print it as a business card which can be hole punched and threaded with ribbon or string. If you prefer to finish your print in-house, or have other plans for it, you can order it on an unfinished flat sheet for ultimate versatility.

Q: Is your printer a laser printer? I need to do some hand foil finishing on black card. Do you have black card and if so would you print on it? It doesn't need to be white ink.
A: Hi Kerry, we do not print on black card at present but what you can do is print black ink over white card so it gives the same effect as something printed on black card.

Q: Who should a wedding invitation come from?
A: Traditionally it begins with the bride's parents, "Mr. & Mrs. Name request the pleasure of the company of [Name(s)] to celebrate the marriage of their daughter [Bride's name] to [Groom's name], on [day and date] at [time] at [church and location] and afterwards at [reception venue]. More modern invitations have the bride and groom personally inviting the guest, something like "Tom and Jane wish to invite..". Always include an RSVP date and contact details, most likely via email, text or via a website in modern times rather than having to include an rsvp card and stamp! There are various options for the guest's name too, you could get it personalised by your printer, (if you supply a spreadsheet of names) so each invite is printed in the same style and font as the rest of the invitation, or you can leave a thin or dotted line which you then fill in by hand. Top tip: It's nice to include the year on your invite, it is seldom added and most definitely not a necessity, but it's nice for people that keep it as a momento to look back and remember the time.

Q: My client has decided that they don’t want any children at their wedding and they want me to include this information in the wedding invitations. Is there a way I can politely say this? – Jenny
A: Traditional wedding etiquette states that every guest must be invited by name, even tiny infants. This can be troublesome because so many people are not aware of this. Some guests believe that they are automatically allowed to bring family members or friends who were not named on the invitation. Although it might be considered rude to say ‘no children’ or ‘adults only’, you can use a tick box system on the RSVP card for each guest that will be attending stating only the adult’s name, making this very clear.

Q: Bit of a dilemma: I have a couple that both want input on their stationery designs, which usually isn’t a problem, but add to the mix both sets of in-laws , and I am in a fix. How can I politely say “too many cooks spoil the broth” without ruining an otherwise good working relationship?
A: This is a tough one! The dreaded ‘design by committee’ is a situation all designers come across during their career. Too much feedback and constant tweaks and changes can often dilute the design process, ruining an overall theme and causing frustration on all sides. We recommend speaking to the couple first and letting them know that although you love all of the ideas, it is best that all parties meet in a group and provide feedback at the same time. That way everyone has agreed on the direction they wish to go in and you have clear, concise directions. As we all know, one ‘quick change’ is never just that!

Q: What should I write inside my wedding invitation? – Kelly
A: Vital information such as location, time and other significant details need to be incorporated to help your guests plan their day. Other helpful details are: gift lists, local places to stay, directions and menu choices for the big day. Don’t forget the RSVP slip!

Q: I’ve been asked to match the colours used in my stationery design to the colour of the bridesmaid dresses. How can I make sure I have a perfect match? - Jade
A: We recommend asking for a colour reference from the bride, such as a physical fabric sample, or an image from the internet. One person’s idea of ‘forest green’ can be quite different from someone else’s! Remember — your paper choice can also have an effect on the shade a printed colour appears, so choose wisely.

Q: I want to expand my design business into wedding stationery but I don’t do hand finishing, is this a must in the industry? — Chris F.
A: Not all wedding stationers perform hand finishing; in fact some couples prefer to hand finish stationery themselves and just get the design and printing performed via a wedding stationer. Some wedding stationers are naturally inclined toward hand finishing and others are better at graphic design so don’t let this presumption put you off. Should hand finishing be something that you wish to incorporate with your wedding stationery, practice makes perfect. You can try connecting with a fellow wedding stationer or crafty-type and discuss joining forces — two heads are better than one!
