Where do I start?
Select a style from our catalog (individual categories are on the left of the page) that you like. Or, if you have a design in mind that's not shown in our catalog, we will work with you to create an original announcement that's like none other. Simply e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org before placing your order to discuss your request.
Do I need to order a minimum number of cards?
Orders can be placed in multiples of 25. For orders larger than 50, please e-mail us for a custom quote.
How can I see my announcement before it’s printed?
You will receive a low-resolution electronic proof (.pdf or .jpg format) to ensure all information is accurate and as you’d like it to appear. We will not print your cards until we receive your final approval via e-mail and your payment has been processed. Once your payment has been accepted, you can expect your order to arrive in 5 to 7 business days.
What type of paper will be used for my announcement?
Your announcement will be printed onto 4"x6" Kodak Professional photo paper (lustre finish), which renders true-to-life color and detail and is suitable for framing.
Are envelopes available, too?
Envelopes sized to accommodate your announcement will be included at no extra charge. If needed, we offer address imprinting on the back flap: $10 for 25 and $20 for 50.
How do I know if the picture I want to use is of good enough quality?
Many factors require consideration when striving for the best possible photo reproduction. We’ve provided a separate section for photo requirements, which will help you to capture and submit the absolute best picture to announce your special news.
Will shipping charges be added to my order?
Standard shipping within the U.S. for 25 cards (including envelopes) is $8; shipping for 50 cards is $12. For orders greater than 50, or for international or rush orders, please e-mail us at email@example.com for a detailed quote.
Will any of my contact information be shared with other parties?
Please be assured that Heart Strings Announcements respects your privacy, and any information you provide to us will only be used to process your order and will never be shared with outside parties.
