PREMIUM CARD IS FINALLY HERE! (click for details). | Vintage Prints will close for Christmas from 24th Dec – 3rd Jan 2022
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 sample: a simple Generic Sample or a fully personalised Electronic Sample. Available in 3 sizes, these liners add a personalised touch to your envelopes ready to be revealed when opened. Choose to personalise them with a message or a design to match your stationery. Opt to have envelopes pre-addressed with a return address for RSVP envelopes or with your guests’ addresses for invitations/save the dates or leave them blank. Mini C7 envelopes cannot be personalised with addresses.
Generic Sample: A Kraft brown envelope with an envelope liner as shown in the listing photographs. This sample will show you the size, quality, style and colour of your chosen envelope liner. We do not personalise them in any way and you will receive a sample as shown in the images, but with your selected size and liner colour. 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 of your chosen envelope liner. You can make changes to your proof until you are happy with them. If we don’t hear from you for 10 days, then we will presume that you were happy with the most recent proofs 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 liner colour. Please always read any annotations on your proofs.
Our envelope liners are made to fit the Kraft brown envelopes we supply with our stationery.
C5 envelope fits an A5 card (21cm x 14.8cm)
C6 envelope fits an A6 card (approx. 16.2cm x 11.4cm)

Choose the type of sample you would like to receive. For an Electronic Sample, either include any information with the order or email it to us afterwards at your convenience. There is no need to send any information if ordering a Generic Sample.
Once we receive your order, Generic Samples will be dispatched within a day or two. For Electronic Samples, a member of our design team will create electronic proofs using the information you have supplied, usually within 2 working days. The proofs will be emailed to you. Unlike many companies, we do not limit the number of changes you can make to your proofs within reason. Once you are happy with them, let us know and we will close the order out. If after placing an order you haven’t heard from us within 3 working days, please get in touch.
