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 invitations company we 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 status 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.
In stock invitations (off the shelf, primarily for parties and showers) can be proofed, printed, and out the door in as little as 1-3 business days.
