FAQs for special event invitation printing


​Do you offer variable data?
Yes we are able to print a unique name on every invitation using variable data. Simply select this as an option extra when ordering. We then require your master artwork files and a list on names to be merged into your document.

Do you have thicker stocks than 350gsm?

Yes we also offer 600gsm and 700gsm paper option in our ‘Extra thick card’ section.
   


Can I print white on kraft paper?

No, unfortunately the recycled kraft paper we use is not suitable for printing white ink.



Can I have a custom edge paint colour?

We offer 43 base colours for edge painting and more often than not there is a colour suitable for most designs. Unfortunately we are not able to match 100% to a printed colour when edge painting. In some instances we may be able to mix colours to try and get a closer colour match, however this does take longer and we cannot guarantee they will be exactly the same. Please contact us for a custom quote if you would like us to try and match a colour.

Do you also supply envelopes?
No, we only supply printed materials. Plain envelopes can be purchased directly from stationery suppliers such as Envelope solutions.

Do you do letterpress invitations?

We no longer offer letterpress printing. For best results we recommend using a specialist letterpress printer. There are now quite a few small and large letterpress printers in Australia.

Do you do foil printed invitations?
No, we do not offer foiling for a couple of reasons.
1. Foil makes it harder to recycled paper as the foil needs to be separated from the paper pulp.
2. To get the best results with foil you need to foil stamp. This involves having metal formes made and using these to stamp foil on to paper. This adds a lot of cost to small runs of invitations. Over the years digital foil has grown in popularity with printers as it is a cheap and fast alternative to foil stamping. In our opinion that is all it it is, cheap and fast, it really doesn't look anywhere near as good a foil stamping. Our goal is to make printing on recycled paper affordable, we therefore have decided not to offer foiling.

​Can I have different size special event cards such as an A5 wedding invite, an A6 map and RSVP and an A7 registry card in one order?
Unfortunately not no. We can only have one size per order. Our system works out how to fit items together on a sheet based on size, paper and quantity. Each size cards needs to be placed as a separate order.

If your cards are the same size, for example all are A6 then you can do this as one order, just select the number of designs and the quantity of each for example 4 designs x 100.

If the size of all are the same but the quantities vary you can add split quantities. For example if you would like to print 200 wedding invites, and 100 maps, RSVP cards and registry cards. Your order would look as follows:
1 design x 200
+ 3 designs x 100

Is it cheaper to print invitations one sided?
All of our invitations are printed full colour both sides. We are different to most printers in that we make our biggest savings by printing items together rather than printing items one at a time. This means we save money by being more efficient with how we print rather than by using cheaper materials. If you design a invitation that is just one sided it is still more cost effective to print that on a larger sheet of paper with other double sided items, rather than on it's own as a one off print. You of course can print invitations just one sided if you wish, however it will be printed with other double sided cards, so the cost is the same as our standard double sided invitations.

What is he difference between your 350gsm Economy and 350gsm Premium uncoated paper?
The paper in both of these instances is exactly the same. The difference is how they are printed. Economy is printed on a conventional digital printing press which gives a smoother satin look and feel to any printed areas. Premium is printed on a HP Indigo printing press which gives a matt finish to printed areas. For designs with large areas of print such as solid coloured backgrounds, we recommend our Premium option for best quality results.

Can I do a custom size invitations?
Yes our online quote builder allows you to select from a range of standard sizes or manually enter a custom size. Simply click the check box next to the standard dimensions to enter your custom size. We suggest first confirming the size of your envelope first before creating a custom size invitation. Always make sure your final invitation is a little smaller than your envelope.

How do I supply my artwork?
Please supply artwork for invitations as a press ready PDF with a minimum of 3mm bleed and crop lines. For full details of how to prepare and output files ready to print from Canva, Crello, Adobe InDesign, Illustrator or Photoshop please download our artwork specifications from www.printtogether.com.au/pdf/Art-Specs.pdf

Do you have a design templates for invitations?
At this stage we do not offer design templates, it is something we plan to explore in the future. If you would like to use a template we recommend Canva or Crello. Download our artwork specifications from www.printtogether.com.au/pdf/Art-Specs.pdf to see how you need to prepare and output files ready to print in both these applications.

Can I print a border on my invitations?
We really don't recommend printing borders on invitations. We have a shift tolerance of 1mm for invitations. This means prints can shift in any direction during printing and trimming by up to 1mm. When borders are printed this means some invitations will look asymmetrical. If you really want a border we recommend only having this on one side of your invitations and making it at least 5mm in from the edge. This allows us space to re-trim if required to try and make them as symmetrical as possible.

Can I have a sample print of my invitations before going ahead with the full order?
We do not supply printed samples by default, we print directly from your PDF files. If you would like a price for printing a test sample print only, scroll to the very bottom of our quantity dropdown in our quote builder and select ‘sample print’. The cost of a sample print is basically all time for setup and finishing, plus postage. Unfortunately it takes us as long to setup and trim one item as it does a whole pile.

Can I have a proof?
We do not supply proofs unless artwork amends are required prior to printing. We print directly from you press ready PDF files. For full details of how to prepare and output files ready to print from Canva, Crello, Adobe InDesign, Illustrator or Photoshop please download our artwork specifications from www.printtogether.com.au/pdf/Art-Specs.pdf

Can I print split quantities for invitations? For example 1 design x 250 and 2 designs x 500?

Yes just press '+ Add another split quantity' in our quote builder. You can add as many different quantity splits as required. Please also add the quantity in your file names, so we know how many to print of each design – eg Design-Name-1x250.pdf

What if I have more than 8 invitations designs?
You can add additional designs by adding more split quantities. Just click '+ Add another split quantity' in our quote builder. You can add as many different kinds as required.

I have printed invitations with you before, do you keep artwork on file?
Yes we keep all press ready artwork on file. If you have placed an order in the last 5 years you should be able to login to your account with an old quote or reference number and your email address and download any artwork from previous orders. If your artwork isn't in your online account, let us know and we will take a look in our archive for you.

Do you print invitations with Pantone colours?
No we do not print invitations using Pantone colours. All of our invitations are printed CMYK together on large sheets of paper and then trimmed to size. In order to print using Pantone colours, we need to print just your invitations on their own and set the press up with Pantone ink. This takes a lot of time in setup and therefore costs substantially more than printing collectively with others CMYK.

Can I get a sample of the papers you offer?
Absolutely, we have a recycled paper sample pack that contains every paper we have listed on this website. Sample packs costs $5, however this is refunded when you place an order. Request a pack from here: www.printtogether.com.au/prices/order/sample
