About this product

Our sample Save the Dates make choosing your design so much easier. They can be fully customised for you for the perfect finish. We want you to be confident when placing a full order. Choose to have magnetic strips to ensure your Save the Date can have pride of place on a fridge where it can’t be forgotten. We can create the rest of your stationery to match your chosen design too.

Product Information

Generic Sample: a ‘James & Sarah’ or other random sample with your choice of ribbon or twine. These cards have random details on them and do not include any of your own personal information. Please note that printing on the back of cards will not be included even if selected.

Personalised Sample: A printed sample on your choice of card with your personal information on it. You will receive an electronic proof and it won’t go to print without your approval. You will receive the finished product in the post.

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 electronic proofs of your chosen Save the Date. You can make changes to your proof until you are happy with them. We don’t restrict the number of changes within reason. If we don’t hear from you for 10 days, then we will presume that you were happy with the most recent proof and close the order out. 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.

Proofs- Please note that all proofs are shown on a white background irrespective of your chosen card type. Please always read any annotations on your proof with regards to card colour and size.

The one question everybody asks us is “Can we change x, y or z?”. The answer is YES! We fully customise everything so if you’d prefer to word your Save the Dates differently from those pictured then just tell us when placing your order. Perhaps you’d prefer to save the date for some other event? No problem, they are fully customisable. Need the colour or design tweaking or a different font? Just let us know when ordering. 

Printed on thick 330gsm smooth white or ivory card stock or on our Premium 350gsm Cream Textured card, these save the dates come with a hole punched in the top and your choice of twine or double-sided satin ribbon.
