Wedding Orders & Timeline


Every order begins with a sample -

We're proud to be one of the few remaining old-school letterpress shops around. We use the same metal type that artists and craftsman have used for centuries all over the world. We want to make sure you know exactly what kind of printing metal type can give you and the paper you can expect when you place your full order. After you’ve ordered a sample, we’ll ship it to you within two working days (M-F).

Meanwhile...

We're happy to get your wording and send you a quote for the pieces you're interested in while you wait for the sample to arrive. After we receive your sample order, we'll send you an email with a link to the wording form. We'll also give you much of the same overview you see here, and help answer any questions you might have.

so, you’re ready to place an order

Just submit your wording via the form we've sent you - or email us at info@seabornpress.com. We’ll verify the number of pieces you'd like and send over an invoice for half the total order. Once we've received payment, we'll get to work on a digital proof of all the pieces of your wedding suite. 

We’ll send you a digital proof

Using the wording you sent us - when you receive it, please note any changes that you’d like made and send it back to us. We know that getting the wording exactly right is a process and we’re happy to work with you on edits until you’re happy with the final result! Please show your proofs to friends and family so you make sure you aren't leaving anything out.The first three proofs are included in the price of your wedding invitations. Each additional proof is $20.

When everything is perfect...

We’ll send you an invoice for the remainder of your bill. Once we receive payment, we put your order in our queue! Turnaround time begins once the final proof is approved.
