See for Yourself
There is nothing like being able to feel the quality of our paper and printing. We will do our best to include any specific designs you are interested in. However, sample packs are compiled from a backstock of previous designs so we cannot guarantee a specific invitation will be available.
Each sample package will contain at least 3 wedding invitation samples including your preferred print method, swatches of your wedding colors, our ink color chart, and a selection of our "day of" and social stationery.
Sample packs are shipped via USPS and will be mailed to you within 3 business days of purchase, unless otherwise noted.
