A: Advice, consultations and price quotes are ALWAYS free of charge. Please feel free to discuss any queries that you may have. e-mail (query@wildpaperdesigns.ie)

Q: When should I order my invitations?
A: Invitations in general should be ordered as soon as possible. Ordering at least 4 months before the wedding. (Express service available on request.) This will allow ample time for proofing, changes, printing, addressing, mailing and response. Prepare your guest list and decide the quantity of invitations and accessory items you require.

Q: Is it necessary to order extra invitations?
A: When ordering invitations allow for some extras (6/12) in case of last minute guest additions or spoilage that may occur during writing of guest's names. Wild Paper Designs has a min order quantity of 6 (for extras)

A: Yes! You can order up to 3 samples or a sample pack. Check request sample link

Q: Do you offer a catalog that can be mailed to my house?
A: At this time, we do not offer a printed catalog. All products and services may be viewed online. We specialize in custom orders - if you do not see what you are looking for on our web site, our creative director can design a truly unique invitation ensemble for you.

Q: Can I choose my own wording?
A: YES! Please provide your personal choice of invite wording or choose from a selection of options with a choice of font styles.

Q: Do you offer calligraphy and addressing services?
A: Currently, we do not offer calligraphy services in house. But we can recommend some one to you. We do, however, offer to write the guest names in the same font used as your invitation (this is an extra cost of 90c per invitation). Reply card envelopes can be printed again at an extra cost of 55c. Day invitation envelopes can be printed at a cost of 90c each. When we are using transparent labels on envelopes an extra cost is charged. Please check with us for details.

Q: Do you do Massbooklet covers ?
A: We sell Massbooklet Covers/Order of Service Covers only - or we can do the complete booklet for you. The choice is yours. Massbooklets are available in A5, Tall A4, Square & Handbag size - Please email us at teresa@wildpaperdesigns.ie and let us know your preference. All our covers that have a translucent sheet overlay on the outside are printed on an oyster cream card or an oyster premier cream card only or white bond card. This allows the translucent sheet to fall exactly over the A4 card. We do not use translucent sheets over any metallic cards. If you have any queries regarding this please consult with us. All samples of booklets provided will only be done in these cards. Metallic covers are used if we are adding extra materials to the front - for example rose detail or flower detail e.g. (wmb10) ( wmb24). Or, if you wish, can be used on its own with parchment paper inside (wmb11). The handbag size massbooklet is usually used in conjunction with our printed designs.

Q: Do all invitations come with envelopes, or is there an extra cost ?
A: All invitations come with envelopes, some come with a plain envelope or a choice of a pearlescent. Metallic envelopes are new and can be ordered in specially for you. these cost approx 55c extra depending on colour and size.

Q: When should I send my wedding invitations?
A: Send out your invitations six weeks in advance for domestic to eight weeks before the ceremony or earlier if some invitations are to be sent overseas. If you have out-of-town guests attending, you may want to also send a "save-the-date" card at least three months before the wedding so that travel arrangements can be made with ease.

Q: Should I put a stamp on the R.S.V.P. envelopes?
A: It is not a tradition in Ireland to do this but in European and American states a stamp is placed on R.S.V.P. envelopes and is considered a common courtesy.

Q: When should thank you notes be sent?
A: According to most popular etiquette books, you have up to one year from your wedding date to send thank you notes. Gifts received before the wedding should be acknowledged within two weeks after receiving the gift; gifts received after the wedding should be acknowledged within two months after receiving the gift. If you will be unable to send thank you notes in a timely manner, we recommend ordering gift cards. Gift cards are pre-printed cards acknowledging that you received someone's gift and that a formal thank you note will follow in the near future.

Q: Should I send an invitation to someone I know cannot come to our Wedding?
A: Guests unable to attend because of illness or living overseas should nevertheless be sent an invitation.

Q: What date to I put on the R.S.V.P
A: The reply date (R.S.V.P.) should be set at about 3/4 weeks before the Wedding. This allows ample time to finalise exact number of guests attending and will assist with the catering arrangements.

Q: Do you accept orders from outside Ireland?
A: YES!,

Q: What are the costs for delivery?
A: This depends on the weight of your order but the average cost for Ireland is 20.00. All deliveries to Galway city are free of charge.
