Wedding Stationery FAQs

Q. How do we get the photos to you?

Once you place your order, we will set up a gallery for you on our stationery site where you will be able to upload photos of your guests as you get them. You can pull photos from facebook, instagram or elsewhere online. You can alternatively ask your guests to each send you a selfie by a certain date. You can then upload the selfies to our stationery site as you receive them.  The photos do not have to be high quality but please do bear in mind that the better the photos, the better the caricature will be.

Q. How does payment work? Do I pay the full amount when I place the order?

We take a 40% deposit for orders under £150. For orders over £150, we take a 20% deposit. We will email you an invoice for the deposit which upon payment will confirm your order. The remaining balance is paid when all the work is completed.

Q. How long does it take to complete an order?

In an ideal world we would like to have at the least 6 weeks to plan and complete your order. We do however advise that you place your order as soon as possible to secure your slot. We do currently have just 1 artist doing all the drawings so there is a limitation on the number of orders we can take on. 

Q. When will everything be delivered?

We aim to have everything completed and ready to post 8 days before the event when possible. This means thats everything will be at your doorstep 5 – 7 days before the event.

If you need your items to be delivered earlier, please let us know when you place your order.
