about custom orders

 

Paper Options

We offer a wide selection of handmade paper and machine-made papers! Learn more here.

 

envelopes

All custom print orders, excluding business cards, include blank envelopes, made from 30% PCW content or produced from sustainable forests. Please note that bamboo envelopes are not available in pocket size. 

 

handmade paper envelopes

Handmade paper envelopes are available in all sizes for an additional cost. Be sure to have handmade paper envelopes hand-cancelled at your local post office. Hand-cancelling means that the post office will hand stamp each of your envelopes instead of feeding them through a machine that can easily tear or damage the envelopes. Alternatively, we recommend using outer machine-made envelopes to help protect the soft handmade paper envelopes when they are mailed.

 

double envelopes

Outer machine-made envelopes are available for 5x7, 6x6, and regal folded and flat invitations in cream and white.

 

envelope liners

Envelopes are lined by hand. Any liner shown with our samples may be used in combination with any size or color envelope. You may also provide your own paper. Contact us for further instruction.

 

vellum inserts

Translucent vellum inserts are recommended for all white or cream invitations with black envelopes or liners, as well as orders printed on black paper using white envelopes because they rub off on each other. Please inquire if you are interested in using them to protect your order.

 

tissue paper

Cream tissue paper slip sheets are available upon request for an additional $50 per job.

 

letterpress printing

All of the designs in this portfolio are printed by antique letterpress using soy inks and wind power. This historic method of printing uses raised type and images. The text and images are made into plates which are literally “pressed” into the paper, leaving a distinctive and elegant impression in the surface of each hand-fed sheet.

 

inks

Any ink color shown on our swatches page may be used on any design. Please note that paper color will affect ink color.  Ink coverage varies depending on the design and paper type. Additional ink colors may be added for an extra fee. Custom Pantone ink colors are available for $95 each.   

 

foil stamping

Foil stamping is available in bright or matte silver, antique or bright gold, rose gold, copper, champagne, white, or black. Custom colors are available for an additional charge. Please contact us for further information. Maximum surface coverage can be no more than 4 x 6 inches. Due to the size limitations, some designs are not available for this process. Rush service is not available for custom letterpress orders using foil stamping.

 

wax seals

Handmade wax seals are available in the sample colors and motifs shown. Custom motifs can be created for an additional fee. Custom artwork fees may apply. Wax seals can be shipped loose along with glue dots or come adhered to the requested items. Please have all envelopes containing wax seals hand-cancelled at your local post office.

We do not recommend using wax seals on outer envelopes.

 

fonts

Any font combination from the font list may be chosen for all invitations shown. You can also provide us with your own fonts. Please contact us for further instructions.

 

custom art

Foreign language, calligraphy, or custom artwork may be printed using customer-provided files. There is a $30 charge for this service as long as the artwork does not require adjustment. Artwork must be provided as a black and white JPEG, PDF, or packaged design file. The recommended resolution is 600 dpi or greater. You may email digital files to: design@oblationpapers.com. Please reference customer’s name with the file. Design services are available for an additional charge of $60/hour with a half hour minimum.

 

foreign language

Typesetting in foreign language is available.  Digital files or hard copies may be required for some languages.  Please contact us for specific instructions and pricing.

A confirmation of receipt should be expected within one business day of placing your order. Proofs are generally provided via email within three to four business days.  Please keep in mind that color proofs should not be used as a reference for the ink colors.

 

order timeline

Orders will be shipped two weeks from the date of final proof approval.  An emailed approval confirmation should be expected within one business day. Large handmade paper orders may require up to three weeks due to the papermaking process. 

 

rush service

Rush orders ship five business days after final proof approval for an additional 25% surcharge on the total order. Rush service is not available for foil stamping and may take longer than five business days for orders of considerable size.

 

pre-ship envelopes

Printed envelopes can be provided in advance for a fee of $95 ($50 for blank envelopes) plus the cost of shipping and will ship within five business days. More time may be required for large orders of handmade paper envelopes.

 

shipping

All orders will be shipped ground unless expedited shipping is requested. In addition, each shipped parcel is insured for the full value of its contents. Signatures are required upon receipt for all drop-ship orders.

 

cancellations

If an order is cancelled after a proof has been provided, a $50 cancellation fee will be charged.  If an order is cancelled after final proof approval, customer will also be responsible for the cost of any work completed.
