When to Order

Birth Announcements

Pick them out any time you are comfortable. If you don’t know the gender, you can pick one for a boy and one for the girl. Let our creative staff help you come up with the perfect wording to welcome your new addition, leaving appropriate spaces for the details of the big day! When the baby arrives, just call, email, or fax us the details and your announcements will be on their way.

The Invitation Lady Tip: Have your envelopes shipped to you before the baby arrives, so you can address them ahead of time. Who wants to be addressing envelopes when you could be holding your precious bundle of joy?

Wedding Invitations

As soon as the details are set, you may go ahead and order your invitations. Manufacturer’s production times vary from 2-8 weeks, and you need to mail your invitations to your guests 6-8 weeks before the wedding, plus allow yourself time to have them addressed, so we recommend ordering your wedding invitations at least 4 months prior to the event.
