At Paper Peach, we require listings to be purchased before sending proofs. Proofs are delivered in the order received, so your commitment saves your place in line and gives your project the priority it deserves. Once you have ordered, you’ll receive three complimentary proofs to make sure you love your design.
Invitations look best on heavier paper. I print on 120 lb matte, and as a general rule of thumb, I recommend a weight of at least 100 lb cover. (When given the choice between cover or text, always choose cover!) When it comes to sizes, you only need to be concerned about the paper size if you are printing at home, and most printers are limited to a legal sized sheet (8.5” x 14”).
If you are purchasing a printable digital file and having this printed elsewhere, you really don’t need to worry about the size of the paper because most likely, your print shop will print many cards per parent sheet (varies from shop to shop, but think big, like 12.5” x 18.5”). These parents sheets are then stacked and trimmed simultaneously.
Please contact us for an estimate for a size changes.
Generally, you'll receive a proof within 48 hours. Please check our homepage for vacation notices.
Once you have received your proof, we ask for just 24 hours to make any revisions.
Once approved, your stamp will ship the next business day day. Shipping takes 2-6 business days.
We can put a rush on it if you add this to your cart upon checkout: https://www.etsy.com/listing/192908838/rush-order. This includes priority shipping on the stamps (2-3 business days), although USPS does not have guaranteed shipping times. Contact us for faster and/or guaranteed shipping dates.
The number one return address mistake is using an apostrophe on last names. Please note that you will look like a star if you leave it out. "The Smiths" means there is more than one person named Smith and the invitation is from them all. If you put "The Smith's," you are showing plural possession of something, we don't know what, maybe you mean the house. But if your use "The Smith's" — this would mean the Smith's house is sending the invitations, not the people that make up the Smith family who are the Smiths (plural not possessive — so no apostrophe!)
Other options would be to use first names, or avoid the entire problem entirely by having, "The Smith Family."
