Your betrothal event is a big deal – for some, it can even be a once-in-a-lifetime event. Naturally, you want to make it the best it can be. And part of ensuring that your event achieves greatness is ensuring that your engagement party invitations are top-notch.
You may have considered making them yourself, but might not have the skills or the tools to do so. Creating engagement party invitations involves the use of digital software and correct printing methods, which isn’t always easy to master. You could make them by hand, but that could be a pretty lengthy and time-consuming process.
Hiring someone to do it for you may be the most efficient option. But given that there are so many businesses on the market looking to make your cards, how do you find the right person for the job that stands out from the rest?
Here are 6 tips on how to find a suitable business:
Consider if they have a good range of print options
A good service provider should offer a solid range of printing options for you to choose from – you don’t want to feel limited. Things such as foils and metallic are good. They should also offer an array of colours. A range of shapes for print is also useful; you may want to print on a square, rectangle or boarding pass, for example.
Check if they have the theme you want
A suitable business should have a quality range of wedding themes on offer. Whether you’re after vintage, traditional, floral, Asian or even season-themed engagement party invitations, you should be able to find what your heart desires. The designs should be relatively modern and stylish; avoid businesses whose designs are unappealing or old-fashioned.
See if they offer a sample pack
You want to be able to test the quality of the paper you will be printing on. If your business is an online one, check their website to see if they can send you a sample of their work. A sample pack should include things such as colour swatches, design options, a stationary guide, and paper styles. This should be relatively cheap to purchase.
Assess if they have a good returns policy
If you are dissatisfied for any reason with your engagement party invitations, you should be able to return your cards and receive your money back. You do not want to waste a ton of money on something with a spelling mistake on it!
Read the company’s about page
Do your research online into the company you’re interested in. Try to use a local business, preferably one owned and made in Australia. This helps ensure you’re supporting local Australian businesses as well as getting a fast response and production time. Also check that you’re working with a business who is willing to communicate with you in an effective and timely manner about your needs and your specific design. Good customer service is essential when buying engagement party invitations.
Look at online reviews
Reading online reviews for a company can be a good way to get a sense of how reputable and quality the business is. Other customer’s experiences can offer valuable information on how good a company is to work with, though be sure to check that the reviews aren’t fake.
There’s no need to let your engagement party invitations be a flop – ensure that they are the best that they can be by following these tips to find a suitable business. You and your guests will be left satisfied and impressed with the results.
