How many Invitations should I order
Ideally you should make a list of guests attending and how many will be coming with each invitation. For example some invitations will be for families and some for individuals.
We suggest you order about 15% more than you need.
What if run short and need more invitations
We suggest that you order at least 15% more invitations than you need, to cover for mistakes in writing and guests you may missed when drafting up the guest list or to cover for guest who will not be able to attend.
If you have to re-order invitations, they will be more expensive as they will be treated as a new order. The minimum order is 20 invitations
