HOLIDAY: Please note that Vintage Prints will be closed for a well-earned break from 5th - 15th November (inclusive).
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 3 different types of sample from a simple generic sample through to a fully personalised, printed sample. 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.
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. 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.
Personalised Sample: A personalised sample is a great way to take you through the whole process of creating your perfect Save the Date from ordering through to receiving the finished product in the post. Send us all the information you would like to have printed on your card such as the venue location. We’ll draw up an electronic proof for you and you have plenty of time to make any amendments. When you’re happy with the proof we’ll send it to print and you will receive the finished, printed Save the Date in the post. Your Personalised Sample can be for any event.
If we do not hear back from you for 4 weeks from the date of placing your Personalised Sample Order, we reserve the right to print and dispatch the sample without your approval.
Please note that although stickers will be personalised on the electronic proof, the printed version you receive will match the design shown but will not be personalised. We cannot print single stickers and you will receive a sticker as shown in the listing photographs.
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. 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.
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 proofs with regards to card colour and size.

Choose the type of sample you would like to receive. Either include the information for your card 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 a member of our design team will create an electronic proof using the information you have supplied, usually within 2 working days. The proof will be emailed to you. Unlike many companies, we do not limit the number of changes you can make to your proof within reason. Once you are happy with it, let us know and we will send it to print or, in the case of an electronic sample, close the order out. Nothing goes to print without your approval. If after placing an order you haven’t heard from us after 3 working days, please get in touch.
