Wedding Collection: Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect to spend?

Every design includes a range of coordinating pieces: Save the Dates, Thank You Notes and Reception items. A 4-piece suite (including formal invitations, reply card and blank envelopes) starts at $680 for 100 pieces. Save the Date pricing begins at $335 for 100 with blank envelopes.
How do we get started?
We're certain that once you have a chance to see our work in person you'll fall in love, that's why we encourage clients order samples* which allows you to hold an actual Invitation in your hands. Then, just give us a call when your ready to move forward and we'll walk you through the entire process. For local area couples, we encourage you to view our album in person at Papel New York, a lovely stationery shop located in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. Please see the COLLECTION section below for more information.
* Sample costs (up to $15) will be deducted from your final invoice should you place an order with us. Visit our store to order a sample now.
How many pieces do I need to order?
A good rule of thumb is to determine the number of invitations that need to go to each household on your guest list. Reprinting is expensive and subject to large minimums so be sure to double-check your list to obtain the most accurate number. Round your numbers up if you have any doubts you may need more pieces at a later date. Wedding Invitation orders include 10% additional envelopes. If the calligrapher you are working with requests more than this amount, please be sure to order accordingly.
When should I place my order?
The following suggestions are based on typical events. If you are having a destination event or your wedding is over a holiday weekend, you may want to add time in order for your guests to make the necessary arrangements.
