The Print Fairy
All dollar amounts are in Australian dollars. The Print Fairy can supply to international customers from New Zealand, United States, and United Kingdom who can make payment via the PayPal system.
The cost of our basic sample pack is $20.00. You can upgrade your pack and tailor it more towards your requirements if you wish to see alternate print methods such as letterpress, wood and foiling, all of which cost just a little more. The pack contains 3 invitations of your design/ colour preference so you can get a feel for our print quality and finish. It also contains our colour palette and card stock options so you can choose your colour and base for printing. While we try to supply you with your first preference in your sample pack, this is not always possible due to our sample stock on hand. We do not carry every design in all of our colours as samples. Sample invitations may differ in colour from a hard copy of our printed palette. Samples are to be used as a guide only.
We do have a minimum quantity for each item which can be found on each item in our shopping cart. Please contact us if you require less than the specified minimum as there will be a fee that applies depending the actual quantity you require.
SUPPLYING YOUR EVENT DETAILS
Submit your order via our shopping cart and make your payment. This confirms your order. Additional wording can be supplied electronically via email or MS Word document after you have placed your order. Any invitation wording can be changed to suit your taste, however the amount of wording used will be limited to the constraints of the design and approved at the discretion of the Print Fairy. Supply your event details as you would like to view them (all upper case, all lower case, a mix of the two). You will be asked to supply your guest list after you have approved your artwork proof. A guest list template will be emailed to you for you to fill out and send back to us so we can include the correct names and spelling.
If you want to include a photograph in your stationery, all pictures must be supplied in JPEG format. The higher resolution of the picture the better the result. If you are unsure of the resolution quality then send it to us and we will assess it for you. Only submit a photo that you own the copyright, or have the copyright owner's permission to use.
When viewing our designs on screen colours do vary depending on different monitors. We encourage you to purchase a sample pack so you can see for yourself the type of colours we work with. We use a top of the line digital printing press for all of our stationery which is the most economical method of achieving strong vibrant colour.
PLEASE NOTE: The colours shown on our printed colour palette and in our samples are a guide to the shades we have available. Due to the variable nature of the digital printing process, these colours do shift between each print run, therefore an identical match to our printed colour palette that you have received as part of a sample pack may not be achieved.
This also means if you split your stationery order across 2 different print sessions eg, invitations and RSVPs' first, then 2 months later we print your menu's and favor tags, we can not guarantee that the colours will be identical between both runs. If you are after exact colour matching we suggest you search for a more costly 'off-set' printing company where you can choose a specific Pantone (PMS) ink colour to be matched.
We offer 4 different varieties of card stocks which are outlined below...
• Standard White 280gsm - our house stock which is our most cost effective card to use, giving a lovely smooth matt white finish.
• Textured White 220gsm - a premium subtle pinstriped grain textured card in a brilliant white shade creating a luxurious and elegant finish.
• Shimmer White 250gsm - a premium soft metallic card in a snow white shade creating a supreme and elegant finish.
• Smooth Cream 280gsm - an off white, creamy, matt finish.
PLEASE NOTE: If you want to have a full background colour instead of white, we do reccommend using our standard white card stock. This is the best stock to print block colour, otherwise you are paying for a lovely stock eg Shimmer and Textured white only to have it covered up by a printed colour. Our print colours will also appear differently on whatever stock you select due to the base colouring of the card.
PRINT ON WOOD WEDDING STATIONERY
We have 3 wood colour types to choose from. All have a supremely fine texture and feel and each piece of timber is unique with it's own imperfections and natural patterns of the wood showing through.
If you are after a lighter background finish, almost like balsa wood in terms of colour, then select the BIRCH option.
If you want a natural caramel/ red tinged timber look with a smooth swirling grain pattern, then select the CHERRY wood type option.
The darkest timber of the 3 is MAHOGANY and is still a natural brown/ red tinge but the grain/ knots are more distinct. It tends to have more natural wooden knots in it compared to Cherry.
** Our wood invitations are REAL TIMBER. This means that no two invitations are ever the same. Each batch of timber harvested may look slightly different from the previous, even though they are the same tree type. If your finished wood invitation looks slightly different to any sample you received, this is due to the natural characteristics of the product. Birch is the most consistant in terms of colour and grain. Mahogany and Cherry tend to have a greater variance in depth of colour across all of the orders that come through.
• We do not have wooden envelopes to match these invitations. They come with standard white envelopes as part of the cost, or you may choose to have a coloured or textured envelope.
• At present we can only print Invitations, RSVP cards with envelopes, gift cards, menu's, favor tags and table numbers. Place cards can not be printed as these need to be folded.
• The wood does bend just like our 300gsm card stocks. Please be tolerant of this possible bend throughout the postal service of your invitations and RSVP cards, just as you would be when choosing our card stock invitations.
• The wood invitations are very similar in weight to our card stock invites. It's a very fine plain of wood that is being printed on and is put through a high quality digital printing press.
• They contain no additives, chemicals or water.
• If you choose to print on wood, your purchase will enable a tree to be planted in your honour in a non-harvesting area. Thanks to you, the world will be a little greener!
If you would like to change a font of any of our designs, we have a range of fonts to choose from. However, not all of our designs in our signature range will suit all of the fonts in our list. Each of our designs has been carefully chosen to suit the specific theme of the invitation. We will guide you towards making the right choice of replacement font and suggest other options from our list that will work best.
Please do not ask us for the name of the font we have used in your design. We do not disclose font types under any circumstances to protect our design work and further print revenue.
If you would like a map illustration created and included in your invitation you must supply us with a screen capture or website link of the venue that has a map for us to re-draw. You must highlight to us any specific landmarks or other information you would like included.
Custom Design means an idea generated either by the client or a new concept created by the Print Fairy based on a client specification. The custom design service works on a design fee of $120 and the item/s will be harged according to materials and any embellishments required. Or you can choose from one of our standard invitation layouts for your custom design to be applied to. Request a quote for any custom design idea you have in mind. Any quote is free of charge. Any custom design project follows the same terms and conditions outlined in this document.
**PLEASE NOTE** The $120 fee to have us create a custom design for you covers our design time only. This fee does not entitle you to receive any finished artwork file that we may have created for you. If you require the print ready or high res files also, please discuss your needs with us prior to paying for your custom design as this is not always possible.
