*square envelopes arrive with square announcement orders. these envelopes require additional postage ($0.20) from the postal service due to their square size. all other envelopes require a regular 1st class postage stamp.
Within the US, announcement orders are shipped via USPS Priority 2-3 day mail for a flat $8.95 fee. Military address shipping is $9.95. We ship internationally via USPS Global Priority and Express Mail. Most standard Global Priority Int'l orders to western Europe have a 6-10 day delivery window and cost about $25. We charge the cost charged to us. Insured and expedited global shipping is available for an additional cost. Call or email for other countries or Express shipping options.
What is the difference between photo paper and coverstock? Other than price, the difference is paper thickness. Your design will look beautiful printed on either paper choice. We proof each order to ensure the color and printing quality you expect from us is excellent.
Photo paper - we use a premium photo paper that is a bit thicker than the photo paper you'll find at most on-line and local photo labs. The matte lustre finish is the most popular photo paper finish.
Coverstock paper is a heavy weight/thickness, and is about 2.5 times thicker than photo paper. We use the thickest coverstock paper currently available that can go through the special printers that print our coverstock photo announcements. Our printing quality can't be beat!

If you have any question about which paper to have your design printed on, and would like to see samples of each, we recommend ordering a sample pack before you place your order.
