Rush processing vs. Standard processing

Rush processing:
– proof emailed in 1 business day
– order shipped within 1-2 business days after proof approval via your original chosen shipping method

Standard processing:
– proof emailed in 1-3 business days
– order shipped within 5-10 business days after proof approval via your original chosen shipping method

You must contact us first to inquire. We need to make sure we can complete the timeline of a rush order based on your desired product and quantity.

When will I receive my order?

Wedding orders are usually printed within 5-10 business days (2-3 weeks for letterpress/foil) after proof approval.

Non-wedding orders are usually printed within 2-5 business days after proof approval.

Please allow an additional 2 – 8 days for shipping in the U.S. Pixie is not responsible for situations caused by the neglect of the post office (i.e. damaged, lost or stolen invitations).

Rush processing:
– proof emailed in 1 business day

How do I order more of a previous order?

If you find you need more invitations/announcements/stationery than you originally ordered, visit the item on our website and place the order again, leaving us your old order number during checkout. Don’t see your desired quantity? Contact us to set up a custom listing for you.

Can I order a custom quantity?

Unfortunately, no. We sell in set quantities to avoid the back and forth it would require to change and exactly match every customer’s guest count. Also, we always recommend having a little extra on hand to allow for last minute guest list changes or invitations that get sent back to you that might be a little beat up from the mailing process.

Address Printing
Where do I send my guest’s addresses for printing?

Download this Excel file for our preferred address formatting. Alternatively, you can email the address doc to mywedding@pixiechicago.com. An Excel document is preferred. We will accept Word docs as well. The addresses must be formatted EXACTLY as you want them to appear (e.g. punctuation, capitalization, etc.). Please do not include any extra formatting in your document (tables, colors, etc.).

I have some changes to my guest address document but I’ve already sent it to you, what should I do?

Contact us immediately so we can pause your order. Please update the original document and email the new version to mywedding@pixiechicago.com. If we have not already started printing them then you’re all good! If production on the envelopes has already started there will be a correction fee.

What happens to the blank envelopes that do not receive guest address printing?

All remaining blank envelopes are shipped directly to you.

I’ve already received my order but I noticed mistakes I made on some addresses, how can I get new ones printed?

Pixie charges a $25 fee for up to 10 address corrections. You may purchase those here. Just leave the new/correct addresses in the Comments section during checkout. Corrected envelopes usually ship within 3-5 business days (this does not apply to custom envelope colors, please contact us directly if your order included custom envelope colors).

Did Pixie make the mistake? Contact us immediately so we can ship you corrected envelopes!

Postage
How much postage should I buy for my invitations?

We strongly recommend taking a completely assembled wedding invitation suite (in its envelope) to the post office to have them weigh it. This way they are able to sell you the correct postage based on the weight of your invitation and you don’t run the risk of returned invitations due to insufficient postage. Don’t forget to pre-stamp your RSVP envelopes! These typically only need standard Forever® stamps since they are usually only one card.

Samples
I received a sample in the mail and I love it! How do I place my order?

Simply visit the same item listing from which you ordered your sample and select your desired quantity! If your sample was customized, there’s no need to leave the wording details again, just leave us your sample order number.

There are so many free samples out there, why does Pixie charge for samples?

Since we’re a relatively small company that pumps out quite a few orders, it just doesn’t make sense for us to carve time out of filling full orders to prepare samples for free. We spend a good amount of time on our samples so customers will have an accurate idea of what the final product will look like.

Printing a single-piece order doesn’t give us the cost efficiencies of a 150-piece order, so $8 is closer to the actual cost of 1 invitation when you factor in design time and supplies (ink, paper, envelopes). Additionally, we allow you to make a few revisions to a digital version of the sample before printing, which increases the time we spend on design.

What are your business hours?

While our online shop is never closed we typically only process proofs, print orders and reply to emails during the following times:

M-F:  8:00 am – 6:00 pm Central Time
Weekends & Holidays: OFF

Please allow about 2 business days for a reply on general inquiries.

Can I apply a design that I saw to a different layout?

If you saw something you liked (i.e. bridal shower invite) and you would like it applied to a different format (i.e. baby shower invite), just visit the page of the desired design layout and leave the your preferred wording during checkout! We can customize any of our products for any event!

What type of paper do you use?

Most of our products are printed on Neenah Classic Crest® premium quality card stock on 80, 100, and 130 lb. weights. Letterpress/foil orders are printed on 100 lb. cotton card stock.

We also offer custom paper options. Please contact us at info@pixiechicago.com for more details.

Can you send my purchase directly to a gift recipient?

Yes, just enter your address in the billing section and the gift recipient’s address in the shipping section. If you’d like to include a message with your gift, please do so at checkout. Also, specify if it is a gift so that we do not include receipt.  Your receipt will be emailed to you.

Terms and Conditions

 

By placing an order at Pixie, you hereby acknowledge and agree to the following terms and conditions:

Logo

Please note that Pixie’s logo and website will be printed on the back of all stationery items. We do not print our logo or website on any wedding items.

Designing your order

When designing your order, we sometimes have to make small adjustments to spacing depending on the information you want to include, which is why requesting a proof is recommended before printing.

Proofs

If you choose to have a proof sent to you via email before printing it is important to know that we do not print until we receive your approval of the design. It is your responsibility to reply to the email after approved. Most proofs are sent within 3-5 business days of the order and most orders are shipped 5-10 business days after approval.

When the client approves a proof, we are not responsible for any mistakes printed that match the approved proof.* This includes any spellings, dates, addresses, spaces, colors, graphics, etc. that are incorrect. Although we do our best to ensure everything is correct, mistakes can occur. It is your responsibility to check all information before you approve your proof.

*In the event that we are responsible for a mistake, and the printed piece does not match the approved proof, we will take full responsibility and make the necessary arrangements to correct the situation.

Color

Colors may vary between online viewing and your actual printed product as all monitors display colors differently. Please take this into consideration when placing your order.

Product quality

We strive to produce the utmost quality and high end products. Since products are hand done, there may be slight irregularities. In the event that there is a mistake or the product doesn’t meet the client’s expectations due to the neglect of us, we will do our best to correct the problem at hand.

Shipping

Pixie Chicago is not responsible for situations caused by the neglect of the shipper (i.e. damaged, lost or stolen invitations).
