Frequently Askeds Questions (FAQs)

The following links give answers to frequently asked questions about our various greeting cards, invitations, announcements, and more.

Do you have a minimum order?

Our minimum order on our website is only $25.00 in merchandise.
There is a 3 pack minimum on most invitation designs.

I'm interested in invitations which I can print myself. What is the weight of your papers?

Our invitation and announcement paper stocks are a high quality, smooth card stock that is compatible with today's laser, ink jet and bubble jet printers. We call these "imprintables" and also refer to them as Print It Yourself papers.

Our invitation paper stocks are generally an 85lb (some 65 lb) offset cover weight paperstock which holds both black and color inks beautifully. Due to the wide variety of printers, we can not guarantee the quality of printing on your specific printer. We will be glad to send you a sample of any paper that you are interested in testing to verify compatibility with your printer.

Our 8 1/2" x 11" laser stationery is a 24lb high quality paper stock specifically created for laser, ink jet and bubble jet printers.

What envelopes are available? Are envelopes included?

We include envelopes with all of our imprintables and cards unless otherwise noted.

Our envelopes for imprintables are a high quality paper stock with a square flap envelope. Our standard color is white, although you may select a substitute color for certain products.

Are your papers acid free, lignin free, buffered, etc?

We offer many different types of papers so it all depends on which series of papers you are referring to. Since this is a question that is usually asked by scrapbookers, we will assume that you are inquiring about our scrapbook and laser papers (our SC and LS series). Our SC and LS series of papers are 100% acid and lignen free. They have a pH factor of 7.2 and are not buffered.

Do you have a paper catalog that you can send to me in the mail?

Our website is our catalog and we are pleased to send you samples so that you can see the product and the quality for yourself.

Can you send me a sample of an item that I am interested in?

Yes. We are glad to send you a few samples of imprintables that you are interested in. Simply let us know by email which items you are interested in seeing. Be sure to provide us with a mailing address.
