About this product

It can be difficult to choose your stationery with so many different options available. Ordering a sample is a great way to show you the quality, colours and style so that you can make up your mind. We offer 2 different types of samples: a simple printed generic sample or an electronic sample to just view on screen (not suitable for printing at home). If you’d prefer to order a fully personalised, printed sample, please use the main product listing (click on Purchase Full Order button at the top right). Choose to have a magnetic strip to fix to the back to ensure your Save the Date can have a place on a fridge where it can’t be forgotten.

Product Information

Generic Sample: A generic sample is to show you the size, quality, style, and colour of your chosen Save the Date. We do not personalise them in any way and you will receive a sample as shown in the images, but with your selected options such as card type. Most samples are pre-printed on white card, but we will always try to send you one on your preferred card colour. If we don’t have it in stock, we’ll include swatches. There is no need to send us any details. We’ll dispatch your sample as soon as possible, usually within 1 or 2 working days.

Electronic Sample: Perhaps you’ve had a Generic Sample already and are happy with the quality but would now like to see what your information would look like in your chosen design. Perhaps you need to have the design tweaked? Then this is the option for you! We create an electronic proof for you to view on screen. Feel free to adjust the wording to something like ‘Save the Evening’ or ‘Keep your evening free!’
You can make changes to your proofs until you are happy with them (within reason) for up to 10 days at which point the order will be closed. We are always happy to make changes and update proofs but if you change your mind and would like a different design, please order a new Electronic Sample. If we don’t hear back from you, we will presume that you were happy with the most recent proofs.
Please note that an electronic sample is not suitable for printing at home. It is purely for you to see what your information will look like in your chosen design.

Personalised Sample: Please use the main product listing to order a single personalised sample.

CARD COLOUR:  Choose from a smooth white or ivory 330gsm card or our lightly textured Premium Cream 350gsm card. The premium card is noticeably thicker and adds a luxurious look and feel to your cards.

Available in 3 sizes: Large 5x7”, Medium A6 or Mini A7. Please see sizing tab for measurements.

Have us round the corners for you or leave them square.

Peel & stick magnets to make sure your announcement has pride of place on a fridge and can’t be easily forgotten.

Choose whether you’d like them Landscape/horizontal or Portrait/vertical.

ENVELOPE COLOUR:  Kraft brown envelopes are included as standard. Other colours are available for a small surcharge. Just click on the colour you would like. We’ve searched for a long time to find the best quality envelopes at affordable prices and are really happy with what we now stock. If you do need a different colour, let us know and we’ll see what is available.

ENVELOPE LINER:  Envelope liners are on white or cream paper (ivory available on request). We’ll assemble and glue your sample as standard. If you’d prefer us to leave it loose where they are pre-cut & creased, ready for you to stick in yourself, just let us know when ordering. We create them to match your chosen design but if you’d prefer a different design to complement your cards, add a note to your order. Choose any design you like. Browse our other envelope liner listings for ideas. They are sized to fit all our v-flap envelopes and are not available for our Premium White peel & seal envelopes.

SAMPLE STICKER TO SEAL YOUR ENVELOPE: A matching (if available) sticker for your envelopes gives a hint of what’s to come. Choose from matt heart stickers, or round matt, gloss, or transparent stickers.

ELECTRONIC SAMPLE WORDING: You can either list the details for your order here, or you can email them to us afterwards at your convenience. Please note that Generic Samples are not personalised. Please only send your own details if you are ordering an Electronic Sample.
