Questions & Answers
What are some
I should follow?
Please see our addressing etiquette tips. When you sign up for our Wedding Guest List Organizer, you can access them right through your own website at www.SeeMyAccount.com.
How long will it take to get my wedding invitations addressed and in the mail?
Once your mailing list(s) is in an electronic format and all the materials have been delivered to Laser Mail, allow three working days. We will try to accommodate rush orders.
The bride's family and the groom's family each have their own friends to be invited. How do we get the lists together?
Building your wedding list online through your very own Wedding Guest List Organizer provides password-protected access to as many users as you give the password to. Both families can use the Internet to update the database, even at the same time, and from anywhere in the world!
How should I prepare my invitation mailing list?
Most customers like to take advantage of the Wedding Guest List Organizer we offer at no cost. This way you can build your list right on your own website, organizing all your wedding events. If you prefer to use your own database, we recommend you use Microsoft Excel or Access to enter your names. Then just email the list to us for mailing. We can also upload a partial list into your Wedding Guest List Organizer by emailing it to us.
I've got several lists of who should get an invitation, but they are all on paper. Do they have to be entered in electronically?
Yes. The only way to use Calligraphy by Computer is to have the names in an electronic format. We recommend setting up a Wedding Guest List Organizer.
I've received my envelopes and invitations from the printer, and I have the mailing list ready to go. But I'm still waiting on some engagement photos to be printed. Can Calligraphy by Computer get started without them?
For us to provide the service you expect, you must supply us with all the pieces that are required to complete the mailing. If you choose to do the inserting yourself, we only need the envelopes for addressing.
Can I save money by having Calligraphy by Computer just do the calligraphy addressing on the envelopes, and then I do my own inserting, sealing, stamping and mailing?
We encourage you to use our full service. We do offer an option for the calligraphy service only, but for the small cost difference, we strongly recommend you turn the whole job over to us. However, if you choose to finish the job yourself, please refer to our inserting tips.
I saw a certain style of stamps that I want to use on my invitations. What stamps can be used?
Our pricing includes applying any stamps that are available from the Post Office. You can bring in special stamps of your choice and we will apply them to your invitations. We will weigh your invitations to make sure you have the proper postage amount. Remember, square envelopes will cost a little more in postage, and our services do not include the postage stamps themselves.
Some people on my list get an announcement, others an invitation to the reception, and some get a special invitation to the ceremony or dinner. How can Calligraphy By Computer help me sort them out?
Using our Wedding Guest List Organizer, you can personalize your list to reflect the events you will be having. Just click on the checkbox to select which events your guests will be invited to. Before we print, we will send you a PDF file so you can double check the accuracy of your list, so you can be assured of no errors.
