How do I send my guest/address list?

How would it be delivered?
Depending on your needs or location you can collect it from me or I can arrange for it to be record delivered or arrange for couriers to deliver it on the day of your choice.
What if my order hasn't arrived?
If your order hasn't arrived on the due date please inform me as soon as possible so I can follow this up with the courier to ensure delivery takes place as soon as possible. I can not accept responsibility for any orders lost or damaged in the post. I will not accept liability for loss or damage arising after delivery has taken place. If you would like your order to be insured please ask for a quote before posting.
What type of paper is suitable?
Generally most types of card and paper are fine for calligraphy but there are a small percentage that are not, these are mainly handmade or coated papers. If you are unsure I would advise you to raise any concerns with your stationery supplier regarding compatibility. Alternatively, I will be only too happy to help and answer any questions you may have.
Is there a colour option?
Most definitely, I am able to mix the calligraphy ink by hand to achieve the colour of your choice. However, black is generally the most effective and complimentary colour depending on your stationery. Again I will be more than happy to advise you if you are unsure.
How much spares do you need?
To allow for any mistakes that I might make I ask for at least 10-15% spares. This will also save you providing spares for any last minutes additions to your guest list.

It is easy to make payment we will provide you with an invoice with order confirmation and payment instructions.
