Thank you for choosing Paper & Posh for your invitations! Our goal is to work with you to create an invitation you love, and that truly represents you and your event. We want you to be completely thrilled with the end product and our service. Below is ordering information that we ask you to read to ensure the process is both fun and exciting!
We offer a complimentary, in-person consultation at our Media, Pennsylvania studio, around seven months prior to your event date. At your consultation, we get to know you and discuss all information necessary to create your perfect invitation suite. We will show you our portfolio of invitations suites, invitation samples, as well as paper and ink samples. At the consultation we will give you a price estimate valid for 30 days. If you would like to order your invitations at your consultation, we request a deposit of 50% of the estimate. Please see our payment options below. Should you decide to order invitations with us, we will provide expert advice on invitation wording, etiquette, and the best ways to incorporate additional information including hotel and transportation information into your invitation suite. Consultations typically last one to two hours. Please bring any and all information you may have regarding your upcoming event including location, time, full names of all hosts/hostesses of the event, hotel block information, food options, and if you have one, your event website URL. Your first consultation and two estimates are free of charge. Additional consultations and estimates prior to making a deposit are subject to a non-refundable $50 consultation fee.
At Paper & Posh we know that weddings can be quite expensive, and we do our best to create an amazing, custom invitation for you within your budget. Invitation pricing is set by the invitation designer/manufacturer. Our consultation with you, expertise in design and customization, paper and ink process, as well as etiquette advice and hours of dedication to your wedding invitations, are free of charge and included in the price of your invitations.
“Invitation suites” consist of your main invitation, return address on your main envelope, a response set and one insert card. Invitation suites start roughly at $9 each, for 100 invitation suites. Many different factors can increase the pricing including upgrades to paper choice and print process (i.e. letterpress and foil), paper changes, motif addition/changes, graphic design/artwork, multiple ink colors, embellishments, and other options such as second run (printing on the back), die-cutting, edge painting and plying.
We want to work with everyone! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610.952.7524 to discuss your budget an our options!

Your estimate will include an electronic or actual paper proof of your item. Please allow up to one week for proofs. Revisions to proofs typically take two to five business days. Pricing for proofs is determined by the designers but is typically $15 for electronic proofs and $50 for paper proofs. A significant amount of time and expense is involved in the graphic design process and therefore each proof fee will allow for one proof (unless there is mistake in your proof). Please review proofs very carefully. When you approve a proof, you relieve Paper & Posh and the designer of all responsibility for errors in spelling, punctuation, and layout. Every proof is subject to Paper & Posh’s proof policy available at the bottom of this page.
Photos & Artwork
Adding photos and special artwork to your stationery is a great way to personalize it! In fact, we can take your photo, artwork, or logo and through your invitation and reception materials and brand your entire event for you! Photos and artwork should be high resolution, at least 600 dpi, to ensure quality printing. We are happy to review your photo and image for the requisite quality.
Blank outer envelopes are included with every order. Inner envelopes, lined envelopes, colored envelopes and return addressing may be an additional fee. Extra inner and outer envelopes are available and we recommend you order at least ten extra. We are sorry but we do not fulfill envelope-only orders.
Once proofs are approved, please allow three to four weeks for production time. Rush production and shipping is available for an additional fee.
Please allow up to one week for shipping. All orders are shipped to Paper & Posh.
