What you need to know before shopping for your invitations

Unless you are in the profession of design or printing, making your wedding invitations can be daunting. At Lunar, we dedicate to help you to walkthrough the process with expert advice and creative solution that can fit your budget. The following is a guide we offer to help you understand the process of choosing your invitation sets.

Time: How long does it take to make your wedding invitations

You should start looking for your invitation as soon as you have settled your date and venue. You should have your wedding invitations ready at least 3 months prior to your event. Please note that in general an invitation project takes around 3 to 5 weeks to finish, including the design process. Some printing methods may take even longer, for instance, hot foil-stamping and letterpress printing style usually take slightly longer than offset and digital printing.Therefore, invitations should be ordered 4 to 5 months before your event.

Price: How much do we charge

Frankly, there is no standard price range for wedding invitations. In general, a set of invitation falls from $5 to $20+. So it is better for you to set your budget before shopping for your invitation. Also, you should start thinking about the components of your wedding invitations. Most invitations contain a separate reception cards and return envelope, but many also have directions cards, maps, or thank you notes. Since wedding invitations are sold a la carte, you can eliminate or merge components if you have a tight budget. The best thing to do is to come and browse our selections of invitations to see what your budget allows.

Extra: Do you need extra invitations

Count carefully of how many invitations you need before you order. Many guests are invited as couples or a family. For example, if you have 200 guests for your event, you may only need 150 sets of invitations. Be sure to order an extra of 20 to 25 sets for last-minute guests addition or correction. REMEMBER, it will be very expensive to reprint your invitations after the order is completed.
