"I wanted to really customize my wedding invites to suit our theme for our wedding. George and I approached Cass from The Hello Bureau who was based in Melbourne. Although we are a couple based in Perth, the communication between us was constant and Cass made sure everything, even down to the dot, was perfect. Thanks Cass for the experience and the beautiful invites you've created which contributed to making the whole event even more special for us. Love Karla and George." Karla Mae

Questions and Answers

How much are your invitations?

The Hello Bureau

Wedding stationery is one of those things that doesn't really have a ballpark cost, as each couple's requirements is different.

We have setup our website so that you can calculate how much each wedding invitation set will cost including the extras. Please visit https://bit.ly/3Ahmh3h to choose a design and follow through the form to receive an instant quote.

For bespoke designs, the cost will depend on a number of factors:

  • The quantity that you require
  • The number of items in the set
  • The paper stock that you are after
  • The printing methods needed (i.e. special services such as white ink or foiling)
  • The finishing items (i.e. ribbons, seals or pockets)
  • The complexity of the design (i.e. something with illustrations may take longer to design than a simple minimal style)

For an accurate quote, we highly recommend sending us an example image of what you are after, along with the quantity.

STANDARD INVITATION SETS

As a general rule, most standard three-card invitation sets work out to be between $10-$15 per set. This includes a main card, two smaller cards, a mailing envelope and finishing trims.

Additional extras such as printed addresses on envelopes, envelope liners and RSVP envelopes can add roughly $8-$10 to the base price per invitation.

We give you the option to choose how many cards you would like in your set and all of our invitations come with complimentary coloured envelopes of your choice.

MINIMUM ORDERS

Our minimum quantity for wedding invitations is 20.

WHY DO INVITATIONS VARY IN PRICE?

The main reason why invitations vary in price is due to the paper card stock and print finishings. Generally, the thicker (and more luxe) the paper is, the more pricey it is to produce.

Special print finishes such as foiling, embossing, white ink, letterpress and shape die-cutting are all premium processes and can hike up the price of an invitation set immensely.

OUR PAPER STOCK SELECTION

We try to keep our prices down by offering three popular premium eco-friendly invitation card stocks in our standard range.

These include a thick uncoated soft pillowy paper (almost like cotton), an embossed linen textured paper, and a smooth paper.

Other paper stocks are available, with handmade paper and other specialty papers being a bit more pricier than the standard papers.

BESPOKE DESIGN

We are happy for you to contact us for bespoke design and we will assess whether or not we can complete the job. Please note that we are not currently producing anything other than paper products (we don't do acrylics, wood or any other kinds of materials). We're also not producing any letterpress designs.

I know the design that I want and would like to DIY my invitations and/or on-the-day stationery. Can you design me a digital file so I can take it to print at Officeworks or my local print shop?

The Hello Bureau

Yes, absolutely!

This is also a great idea for those urgent items where you need next-day printing and don't have time to wait around for shipping.

We get a number of customers who have found something on Pinterest and would like a similar design that they can take to print out themselves.

Please note that we do require at least two week's notice to design on-the-day items. If you need a digital file in a hurry, we've got some editable templates on our website that you can edit, customise and download.

How much time is needed for custom-designed wedding stationery?

The Hello Bureau

Please note that as wedding invitations can be a lengthy process (the designing, printing and shipping), a minimum of 2 months notice must be given before the sending date.

Generally, wedding invitations are sent out around 4 months before the wedding date. This allows your guests to have up to 3 months to RSVP for the wedding.

If you are expecting guests from interstate or overseas, we recommend sending out digital or physical save the dates to these guests, so that they have ample time to plan and prepare.

How many invitation sets do I need?

The Hello Bureau

The number of invitation sets you require is not the same as your guest count.

Take into consideration guests that live together and only require one invitation per household.

Once you have worked that out, add about 5-10 spare sets just in case you have last minute guests to invite or spots to fill.

Do you have a physical shop we can visit?

The Hello Bureau

No, we are an online-only creative studio. However, Cassandra is available to meet up with Melbourne locals for in-person consultations. Please contact us to arrange a time and location.

Before starting on any wedding preparations we knew Cass was our go-to invitation creator! From the get-go, she helped us brainstorm ideas, colours, themes, and within a short turn around she designed 3 amazing invitations that we could choose from. Throughout the entire process, Cass was attentive to detail, very responsive. utmost professional and we loved her 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude. The invitations are S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G and we could not be happier. We highly recommend The Hello Bureau to all our family and friends - Thank you once again, Cass! Fiona & Leon x

Working with Cass from The Hello Bureau for the design of our wedding invitations was a dream. She spent time working with us, getting to know us, our vision, our ideas and then transforming that into something visual. She is extremely professional and very efficient with the drafts and made what could be a frustrating process, fun! It was an absolute pleasure to work with The Hello Bureau and would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone.

The Hello Bureau

We had the pleasure of The Hello Bureau leading the creative process and designing our bespoke wedding stationary. It was a four-day long celebration that involved a range of stationary - including cards (8 in total), envelopes, bands and a stylised gift box. The Hello Bureau, led by our consultant Cass, was exceptionally creative, professional, flexible and efficient. We would completely recommend The Hello Bureau for your bespoke wedding stationary needs.

The Hello Bureau  

Thank you for the lovely review Dan! I had so much fun designing the cards for you and Carl, thank you for choosing me to be a part of your wedding!
