Placing Orders with Guest Names

There will be an additional fee applied to your order to cover the extra labor involved for guest name printing.

Please be aware that orders featuring guest names will be printed using a flat digital printing method this is because we are unable to print guest names using the thermography (raised ink) process – not only on your guest names.

Giant Invitations will supply an additional 5% of the quantity ordered at no cost for all guest name printing orders. This is to cover for any issues that may occur during production and transit. These extra invitations will be printed with your provided wording and excluding the guest names. A line will be left in where you can hand write guest names.

By supplying additional invites, Giant Invitations will not process reprints for claims accounting for invitations within the 5% quantity. If you proceed to print guest names on your invitations, you agree to use the additional invitations as substitutes.

Proof

The working of checking the 'confirm the design' is based on fitting wording, fixing grammatical or spelling errors and/or editing the font size. You can demand to edit/change the layout of the card through this process. We produce exactly the same format of which is on the last version of proofs finalized by you. Proof approval is the sole responsibility of the customer including grammatical and spelling errors. The printing process starts after you make the payment and we receive your confirmation on the design.
