Q: Where are you located?
A: Our private studio is located on the coastal shores of Cronulla which is south of Sydney in NSW, Australia
Q: Do you have a store I can visit in person?
A: White Cherry Invitations is an online store, therefore we don’t have a physical shop that you can visit. If you would like to view our range of stationery & signage, get in touch to see when we will be at the next local wedding expo or venue open day in NSW. You can also order a FREE swatch card here to physically see your favourite paper/card colours in person.
Q: When should I send my invitations to my guests?
A: We suggest that you send your guests their invitations approximately 3 to 4 months before your wedding. This will allow plenty of time for your guests to save the date, make arrangements and reply with their RSVP. However, you can send your invitations out sooner than this or as close as 2 months out from your wedding if you prefer.
If you are having a destination wedding we suggest sending save the dates between 8 – 12 months before your wedding so your guests can make travel arrangements and book the necessary accommodation.
Q: How long will it take to make my invitations?
A: It generally takes 2 – 3 weeks to make your stationery/signage from the time you approve the digital artwork White Cherry Invitations sends you. Your digital artwork will be sent to you within 3-5 days of receiving your wording. All of the wording links and next steps are provided to you in your confirmation email once you place your order online.
Q: Should I send Save The Dates?
A: Save the Dates can be nice to send to your guests however it isn’t absolutely necessary unless you are having a destination wedding or you want to make sure everyone has had plenty of notice. Between travel arrangements and busy schedules, sending a save-the-date will increase guests’ chances of attending your celebration.
Tip: Amongst the excitement of booking your wedding reception and locking in the finer details, be sure to carefully select your guest list before you send your save the dates. Sending a save the date card is also considered a formal invitation to attend your wedding and your guest will expect to receive the main invitation containing the specifics of your big day. Try and not have any regrets with someone you invited due to early excitement!
Q: What is deemed a destination wedding
A: We would classify a destination wedding, a wedding where the majority of your guests need to travel a long distance which requires them to book accommodation and make travel arrangements. For a destination wedding it is a good idea to send out save the dates between 8 – 12 months before your wedding so they can make travel arrangements and book necessary accommodation.
Q: What are your printing methods
A: All of our stationery is digitally printed with speciality laser printers. We offer digital printing in black ink, white ink (yes white ink) and coloured ink.
Q: Do you print in white digital ink?
A: Yes! We have the speciality white ink digital printer to be able to print in white ink! It looks incredible too!
