Q: How long does it take for invitations to come in?
A: Depending on which company produces them, turn-around time is anywhere from 1-6 weeks. The quickest formal invitation line I currently carry is Embossed Graphics, which boasts proofs within 24-48 hours and ships the order within 3 days after that. Those puppies have been known to come in within a week – it’s amazing, and I have no idea how they do it. But I’m willing to bet their employees aren’t sitting around updating their Facebook statuses all day.
Most wedding companies produce invitations within about 2-3 weeks, and our custom line, Envelopments, takes anywhere from 3-6 weeks or longer, depending on the complexity and size of the order.
