guide to wedding stationery

One of the most popular questions we get here at Kaizen Weddings is how does the ordering process actually work for getting your wedding stationery, be it for design and print, or  for print only, so we thought it would be a good idea to let you all know how we work here at Kaizen Weddings!

Getting in touch and consultations

At Kaizen Weddings, our clients make first contact in all different ways, ranging from face to face and phone consultations, to email and Skype calls. Working with brides and groom to be throughout the UK, we understand that a face-to-face consultation isn’t always possible or practical, so we’re happy to take your brief and requirements in any form that suits you best!

Finding out what you want!

When you’re first making contact or enquiring about wedding stationery, it’s great for us if you can show us any visuals of anything you have seen that you like. With our clients, this can range from screenshots of Pinterest pages, Instagrams posts or an invite that they have received in the post that they love. Some things we chat about in a consultation would include: 

• Design, do you require a bit of help getting your artwork set up for print or want something specifically designed, or do you have your artwork ready to go and you can go straight to print? 
• Print - Size, quantities and card preferences for your invites
• Deadlines and dates - what date do you want to get your invites posted out and do you have your content and guest list all ready to go?

Order Confirmation and proofing 

Once we have had a chat with our potential clients and know what they want, the next step is us sending a quotation out to you. If you are happy to proceed, then we get this order confirmed on our system, sort out deposit with you and get to work! If you are getting design, then we will email you out proofs and ensure you are happy before print, if you are going straight to print, then this is then passed over to our print team and then we carry out our magic! 

Printing and Order Pick Up

Our printing of wedding stationery normally takes maximum time 1 week on average, sometimes if you are getting additional items such as foil blocking, then this can take a little longer. Once your order is ready, then we will email you to let you know that your order is either ready for collection or to be dispatched. 

We hope you found this short guide to ordering your stationery useful! If you are starting to plan your wedding and would like to discuss stationery, please feel free to call in and see us or just drop us a call or email on 028 9002 2474 or weddings@kaizenprint.co.uk with what you are looking for and we will either contact you for a quick chat on what you are looking for or if a full brief is provided, then be in touch with a quotation.
