Do you handle postage and delivery of invitations?
We can proudly say that we offer a full service from start to finish of your custom invitations.

We’ll stuff the complete invitation suite into the mailing envelope and seal them closed with our double-sided adhesive tape.
We’ll coordinate and order the perfect postage stamps and apply them to the rsvp envelopes and/or mailing envelopes.
Our team will even take them all the way to the post office and personally hand cancel the envelopes for you.
