Questions to Ask Wedding Stationers

When we talk about ‘wedding stationery’ we mean any paper goods you use at a wedding, such as invitations, save the date cards, the order of service, menus, place cards and any other general signage you may need. I recently wrote a blog post about the types of wedding stationery you may want to consider at your wedding, you can read more about that here.

There are many resources to find your perfect wedding invitations and stationery. Custom designers will create stationery based on the style of wedding and your preferences. If you’re ordering online, keep in mind that the colour resolution can look different on a computer so it’s best to ask for a sample to be sent to you before making the final choice.


  • How long have you been in business?

  • Do you have a background in design or other experience with weddings?


  • Do you custom design invitations or do you represent invitation companies?

  • What style of invitations do you recommend for my budget?

  • What types of printing processes do you offer?

  • Do you do in-house printing or outsource the printing?

  • Are there different font styles, paper types and paper colours to choose from?

  • Do you offer addressing or calligraphy service?

  • Can you also provide matching table numbers, place cards, escort cards, favour tags, order of service, menus and thank you notes?


  • Once we place the order, how long until we see an electronic proof?

  • How much does the electronic proof cost?

  • After we approve or make changes to the proof, how long until the invitations arrive?


  • What type of deposit is required and what is the schedule of payments?

  • Do you have a minimum budget you work with?
