Reordering

  1. How can I place a reorder online?

    You can reorder items by following these five simple steps:

    • Click on "My Account" in the header on any Wedding Paper Divas page and sign in to access your account history.
    • Find the order you would like to use to place your reorder, and then click the "Reorder" link next to it.
    • Select the items you want to add to your cart.
    • Edit the quantity of the items and add additional envelopes on the Shopping Cart page.
    • Finish your order through the checkout process.

    Please note that once you submit your reorder, we will process it immediately. Unless you make changes to your original order, we will not include a proof.

    return to top

  2. Can I make changes to reordered items?

    To submit a change request, write your request in the special instructions box located next to the reordered item. Please note that you will not have the option to re-personalize the reordered items or preview the updated personalized image online, but our designers will edit your order according to your special instructions and send you a digital proof for your approval. We will proceed with your order immediately once the proof is approved.

    return to top

  3. How long does it take to receive a reorder?

    Since we already have the art file for your order on hand, we will automatically apply rush processing to your reorder free of charge. If you reorder without requesting changes, it will only take approximately two to three business days before we ship your items to you. For reorders that include changes, we will proceed with your order as soon as you approve your proof.

    return to top

  4. Can I reorder envelopes only? Can I reorder just cards?

    Yes, you may reorder envelopes or cards separately, but not through our online ordering system. To reorder envelopes or cards separately, please call us at-1-866-594-1226 or at-1-650-209-1341 for international customers. You can also email us at http://answers.weddingpaperdivas.com/app/ask or chat with a live representative. We will be happy to assist you with your request and process the reorder for you.

    return to top

  5. Will I receive a discount for my reorder?

    Most likely. You can reorder as few as 10 cards, and the price of each item in your reorder will be determined by the total number of items in both your original order and your reorder. This means you will likely enjoy the benefit of the lower prices at our higher quantity tiers.

    return to top

  6. What should I keep in mind when I place my reorder?

    Please note that your final print colors may vary slightly from your original order due to regular press calibrations and natural variations in paper stock. As a result, we cannot guarantee an exact color match for orders printed on different dates for the same item, or for items sharing the same color palette.

  4. Why do the delivery options for international mint tin orders cost more?

    The costs of shipping mint tin orders outside of the U.S. vary based on our carriers' fees at the time you place your order. As a result, the prices you see during checkout will not reflect the final cost of delivery. Our friendly stationery specialists will determine the cost of your mint tin order and contact you with a final total. And don't worry—we never charge extra or turn a profit on shipping costs.

  5. What is a PMS (Pantone) color? What is a CMYK color? What is the difference between a PMS color and a CMYK color?

    Pantone Matching System (PMS) is a color labeling system created by Pantone, an independent company. The Pantone system is the largest color matching system in use today.

    A PMS spot color is created by pre-mixing a number of existing colors. Thus, the ink used in a spot color for a specific print run is already mixed, making the exact color hard to match in the future.

    CMYK, or the 4-color process, uses a specific ratio of four inks (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) to create colors. As a result, each color can be easily reproduced in the future by following the same ratio.

    CMYK Color

    Unlike PMS colors, which are pre-mixed prior to the printing process, CMYK colors are created during the printing process by combining the four inks on paper. As a result, a CMYK color will often print darker and duller than its PMS counterpart.

    Spot Color

    *This graphic is for visual demonstration purposes only, and does not accurately represent real colors.

    return to top

  6. I only have a PMS (Pantone) color. Can you match it exactly?

    No. Our cards are printed on a commercial 4-color (CMYK) digital printing press, so we cannot guarantee an exact match to your PMS color or any other spot colors. We do have resources to convert your PMS color to a CMYK color, but we can't guarantee that the printed colors will match exactly.

    return to top

  7. I want to use a specific color, but I don't know its PMS or CMYK value. What should I do?

    In this situation, you have several options:

    Option 1: Choose a color from our website.

    • If you have a general idea of the color you need, we recommend browsing our website to see if we offer a similar color. Different designs offer different color options, but we are able to print many of our designs using any of the colors we offer on our site. Please call to request printed sample swatches of these colors.

    Option 2: Choose a color from our Custom Color Options Cards.

    • If you don't like any of the colors on our site, you can choose a color from our Signature Matte White Custom Color Options Card, Signature Textured Ecru Custom Color Options Card or White Textured Custom Color Options Card. These cards are included in your sample kit and will provide you with a specialized palette of 30 preselected custom colors created for each specific paper option. The cards are printed on the same paper as our wedding invitations, so the printed colors are an accurate representation of the colors you will see in your final order.

    Option 3: Find a CMYK color.

    • If you want a specific color that is not available on our website, Signature Matte White Custom Color Options Card, Signature Textured Ecru Color Options Card or White Textured Custom Color Options Card, we recommend finding a book that displays CMYK color swatches. Search online, at local bookstores and in libraries for The Tintbook (www.tintbook.com). Whenever you use a book to choose a color, please keep in mind that our wedding invitations are printed on 110 lb. uncoated paper, so the printed color will change slightly.
    • Try to look at colors that are printed on thick, uncoated paper for a more accurate idea of how they will print on our cardstock. Please note that most colors will appear slightly different when printed on ecru paper stock versus white paper stock. If you have any questions, call us for more information.

    Option 4: Find a PMS color.

    • If you cannot find The Tintbook, we suggest contacting a local print shop or art supply store. They are likely to have uncoated PMS color books that you can use to select your colors.
    • Once you find a PMS value, ask the shop if they have a Color Bridge for uncoated paper. If so, find your PMS value in the book and look at the color to the right of your swatch for the CMYK version of the color. You will notice that the colors are not an exact match (please refer to previous questions for more information). The CMYK version will be a closer representation of the color you will see on your invitations. If you are satisfied with that color, make a note of the CMYK values to send to us when you request your custom color.

    Option 5: Contact us.

    • If you have questions about any of these options, please contact our customer service department at 866-594-1226, or chat with one of our color specialists. We will be more than happy to assist you in finding the perfect colors for your order.

    return to top

  8. I found the perfect color, but it is a paint swatch. What should I do?

    Unfortunately, we are not able to match colors from paint or fabric swatches. To find the best color to match your sample, please use one of the recommended resources mentioned above. If you have trouble finding a match, contact our customer service department at 866-594-1226, or chat with one of our color specialists. We will happily assist you in finding the best color to match your swatch. Please note that we may ask you to mail us the swatch.

    return to top

  9. I found the color that I want on a website. What should I do?

    Because of calibration differences, we are not able to accept color requests based on what you see on a computer monitor. Similarly, we cannot match our designs to colors printed with non-calibrated printers. If you like the color printed from your home printer, please mail us the printout and our color specialists will find the closest CMYK color.

  10. I want to change the background color of my invitations to dark blue, but the text is black. Can I change the color of the text?

    Yes. We can change almost any design or text color. If we can't accommodate your request, a customer service specialist will contact you to discuss other options. For other inquiries, please call 866-594-1226, or chat with one of our color specialists.

  11. What are your custom color fees?

    A one-time customization fee of $20 applies to all custom color requests. For details, please see our customization fees table.

  12. If I need more cards, can I order later and still expect the colors to match my original order?

    Final print colors may vary slightly over time due to press calibrations and natural variations in paper weight and stock. Thus, we cannot guarantee an exact color match for orders placed on different dates for the same item.

  13. Can I print color swatches on my home printer to choose my color?

    No. To ensure that you see our colors accurately, we strongly advise that you select a color from our actual Custom Color Options Cards. The colors you see on your computer monitor or printed on your home printer may not be accurate. For more information, please reference previous questions regarding different color options.

Printing Techniques

  1. What is digital offset printing?

    Digital offset printing presses deliver high resolution liquid ink. As a result, final printed products feature bright, long-lasting colors. This process offers the quality of traditional offset printing, but capitalizes on the efficiency of a digital workflow. This means you get the best print quality for graphics, text and photographs on all items in our Signature Collection.

    return to top

  2. What is letterpress printing?

    The oldest and most versatile method of printing still in use today, the letterpress process uses metal plates with raised printing areas. Ink touches only the top surface of the raised areas, and the inked image is then transferred directly to the paper, leaving indented text and images. Sometimes a slight embossing appears on the reverse side of the paper, and the letterpress image is always sharp and crisp.

    return to top

  3. What is thermography printing?

    Thermography is a sleek and modern printing technique that emulates the refined look of traditional engraving. During the process, printed sheets come off a press and pass through a powder application, where resin is applied to the wet ink. The resin is then removed from all areas, except where it adheres to the wet ink. The paper is then heated, causing the resin to melt and fuse to the ink. The substrate is subsequently cooled, finalizing the process and leaving a raised design wherever the resin mixture lies on the paper.

Letterpress

  1. What kind of printer do you use for the Letterpress Collection?

    Through an exciting partnership with fine stationer William Arthur, all of the designs in our Letterpress Collection are printed on antique, commercial grade letterpress printers. The oldest and most versatile method of printing, the letterpress process uses metal plates with raised printing areas. Ink touches only the top surface of the raised areas, and the inked image is then transferred directly onto the paper. Sometimes a slight embossing appears on the reverse side of the paper. The letterpress image is always sharp and crisp.

    return to top

  2. Who is William Arthur?

    After nearly 60 years of creating luxury stationery, William Arthur has earned a distinguished reputation within the stationery business for fine craftsmanship and exquisite style. The company currently prints our Letterpress and Thermography Collections.

    return to top

  3. What type of paper is used for the Letterpress Collection?

    William Arthur's signature white and ecru papers are custom-created exclusively by U.S. mills specializing in fine art and conservation paper. Renowned for its substantial weight, smooth texture and high opacity, William Arthur paper is 100% acid-free, ensuring archival integrity for generations to come.

    The envelope, cover and Bristol weight papers are 100% wood pulp (composed of premium hardwood and softwood fibers), and the text stationery is 75% wood pulp and 25% cotton.

    return to top

  4. Can I print letterpress designs on my home printer to use as samples?

    No. The true beauty of letterpress lies in the impressed surface and creamy texture of the paper, so printing the designs at home won't give you a clear appreciation for its elegance or style. To gain a better understanding of the color and print quality of the designs in our Letterpress Collection, we suggest ordering samples for only $5each.

  5. Can I print a photo on a design from the Letterpress Collection?

    Unfortunately, we do not currently offer photo options in our Letterpress Collection.

Thermography

  1. What kind of printer do you use for the Thermography Collection?

    Through an exciting partnership with fine stationer William Arthur, all of the designs in our Thermography Collection are printed using state-of-the-art thermography printing presses. During the process, printed sheets come off the press and pass through a powder application, where resin is applied to the wet ink. The resin is then removed from all areas, except where it adheres to the ink. The paper is heated, causing the resin to melt and fuse to the ink.

    return to top

  3. What type of paper is used for the Thermography Collection?

    William Arthur's signature white and ecru papers are custom-created exclusively by U.S. mills specializing in fine art and conservation paper. Renowned for its substantial weight, smooth texture and high opacity, William Arthur paper is 100% acid-free, ensuring archival integrity for generations to come.

    The envelope, cover and Bristol weight papers are 100% wood pulp (composed of premium hardwood and softwood fibers), and the text stationery is 75% wood pulp and 25% cotton.

    return to top

  4. Can I print thermography designs on my home printer to use as samples?

    No. The true beauty of thermography lies in the fine texture and raised surface of the paper, so it is best to experience these qualities in person. To gain a better understanding of the color and print quality of the designs in our Thermography Collection, we suggest ordering samples for only $5 each for wedding invitations and $3 each for bridal shower invitations and save-the-date cards.

  5. Can I print a photo on a design from the Thermography Collection?

    Unfortunately, we do not currently offer photo options in our Thermography Collection.

Photo Submission

  1. What photo formats do you support?

    You can currently upload photos in the following formats: .jpg, .gif, .png, .bmp and .tiff.

    return to top

  2. Why does the error message indicate that my photo is below the minimum requirements? How do I know if my photo is suitable for printing?

    The photo you uploaded might be too small for the design you selected. This will result in a grainy or pixilated final product. In addition, attempting to resize the photo can distort the image quality. Since the overall appearance of your stationery is highly dependent on the quality of your photographs, it is important to use clear, original and unedited photos. If you have a larger version of the photo, or if you have another snapshot that would be more suitable for the product, please use that photo instead. Feel free to contact our customer service department if you have any additional questions.

    return to top

  3. Will you edit my photo?

    One of our in-house designers will perform complimentary touchups on your photo. For more information about our highly skilled design team, our photo policies or why we have so many delighted customers, please read on to find out how we help make your photo cards unique:

    1. All photos are printed on premium, 100 or 110 lb. stationery paper for a luxurious feel.
    2. An in-house photo expert will perform complimentary touch-ups on every card, including brightening and sharpening your photo images and removing red eye. We will contact you personally to discuss any other changes our designers think will enhance the appearance of your cards.
    3. All color pictures can be converted to black and white or sepia tone for no additional charge.
    4. Our online preview tool allows you to upload photos, insert them into the design of your choice and preview the finished product instantly.

    return to top

  4. What guidelines should I follow when I submit photos?

    1. Please do not submit a link to an online photo service such as Shutterfly, Kodak Gallery or Snapfish in lieu of a photo. These services store the original, high resolution photo on their servers, but they only show a low resolution version on the web that will not print clearly.
    2. Always send a high resolution, original photo from your digital camera. If the photo is too small for your product, please upload a higher resolution photo, which has more pixels per inch and will result in a crisp, clean and beautiful finished product.
      While it may be tempting to crop or edit your photo, rest assured that our professional designers will take care of your photo editing needs for you. If you have specific instructions for our design team, leave a note in the special instructions box or contact us directly.
    3. When shooting a photo, use optimal lighting. Use natural light for photos taken indoors, and avoid direct sunlight when taking photos outdoors. You should also avoid shadows and particularly bright areas that will print looking almost white. Finally, when using a flash, keep approximately three feet between you and the subject of your photo.
    4. Always select the highest resolution and largest file settings your camera will support. This will reduce the number of photos you can store on your camera, but your photos will be clearer. If your camera offers settings for white balance, be sure to select indoor, outdoor, landscape, portrait or another appropriate setting.
    5. Avoid any movement in your photos that could leave the finished product looking blurry.

    return to top

  5. Can I submit photos via mail?

    Unfortunately, we do not accept physical photos. You must submit a digital photo.

    return to top

  6. My photos aren't ready yet. Can I complete my order and submit my photos later?

    If your photos aren't available yet, you can complete your order and leave a note for our design team in the special instructions box indicating that you will submit photos later. When you are ready to submit your photos, please email photos@weddingpaperdivas.com and list your order number, email address and first and last name. Add your photos as attachments, not in the body of the email.

    If you submit a photo at a later date, please do not resize it since this might compromise your product's final print quality. If you have any special cropping requests, or if you want our designers to convert your color images to black and white or sepia tone at no additional charge, please specify all requests in your email when you submit the photo. Please note that our designers might also need to crop your photo to make it fit the design you selected.

    return to top

  7. What is the size limit for uploaded photos?

    You can upload a maximum file size of 10 MB.

    If you apply a gift certificate to your order and still have funds leftover, we will note the remaining balance in the gift certificate section of your Wedding Paper Divas account.

Unused gift certificate funds will remain in your account until you redeem them.

    return to top

  4. The website didn't accept my gift certificate. What should I do?

    If you are having trouble redeeming your gift certificate, make sure that you enter the claim code exactly as it appears on your card.

    return to top

  6. What if my gift certificate doesn't cover the cost of my entire order?

    If the cost of your order exceeds the value of your gift certificate, the system will prompt you to pay the remainder of the balance using a credit card or another gift certificate, or to change the items in your order to reduce the cost. We do not accept check payments for the balance of gift certificate orders.

    return to top

  7. What should I do if I lost my gift certificate? What if I never received it?

    We can void and reissue any gift certificate that has not been redeemed. Please chat with a live representative or call us at 866-594-1226 for additional assistance.

Product Reviews

  1. What are product reviews?

    Product reviews offer customers a chance to give feedback about the products they've purchased. Each product review provides an overall rating based upon a 1 to 5 star rating system, with 5 being the most favorable. You may find the product reviews helpful in determining which products best suit your needs based upon reviews posted by other customers.

    return to top

  2. How do I submit my product reviews?

    We strongly encourage all of our customers to submit product reviews to help other shoppers decide what stationery items are best for them. In order to ensure the most helpful and accurate reviews, we only allow customers who have purchased a product from us to post a review about that specific product. To submit a product review, visit your "My Account" page and click on the "Review it" button next to the orders that you have placed.

    return to top

  3. I am having trouble completing my review. What should I do?

    Unfortunately, some browsers do not support the tools needed to complete product reviews. If you are having trouble completing a review, try switching to one of our supported browsers (Internet Explorer 7 or Firefox 3) and finish submitting your review from there.

    return to top

  4. I have submitted a review. When will I see it?

    All reviews go through a three-tiered moderation process to ensure that only appropriate content is posted on the website. This process takes roughly 72 hours. Our moderation team screens out profanity and inappropriate content, but will never filter out negative reviews. We want product reviews to serve as an open and honest forum for all customers to post their feedback.

    return to top

  5. Several days have passed, and my review still isn't posted on the site. What happened to it?

    Occasionally, reviews will be rejected during the moderation process. The most common reasons for rejection include:

    • Including personal information. We want to protect your privacy, so we will not publish reviews that include your full name (except when shown on an uploaded image), address, email, phone number, event location or other information that you may not want publicly visible.
    • Listing details about pricing and promotions. Because pricing and promotions change on an ongoing basis, and we cannot guarantee that a price will stay constant for any of our products. As a result, we cannot post any reviews that include specific prices or any promotions that a customer used.
    • Focusing exclusively on shipping and customer service. We understand that customer service and shipping are an important reason why customers shop with us, but we want product reviews to focus on the quality of the products themselves. For this reason, we will reject all reviews, both positive and negative, that overly focus on customer service or shipping experiences. We accept reviews that mention these details in passing, but reviews that focus on one single service or shipping experience will be rejected. If you have questions or concerns regarding a specific order, please don't hesitate to contact our customer service department for additional information.
    • Linking to and/or mentioning another website. We cannot allow reviews to be used to promote other sites or services. If a review contains an external link or attempts to draw users to external sites, our team will reject it.
    • Including irrelevant information. We will reject reviews that are not relevant to the product and/or are too short to convey useful information to shoppers.
    • Including inappropriate material. Please be careful when uploading reviews, and make sure that all information posted will be appropriate for all audiences. Reviews that are deemed inappropriate will be summarily rejected.

    return to top

  6. I believe my review may have been removed. What can I do?

    We allow one review per product per member, so if your review was rejected for one of the reasons listed above, we encourage you to submit another review. We want every customer's voice to be heard, and as a result we do not screen out negative reviews. We created the reviews to serve as an open forum for feedback, and hope that you use it to tell other customers about your experiences with our products.
