Ordering & Design Process
Below is a step-by-step guide to the ordering, design and shipping process for your wedding invitations.
Once you’re ready, select your favorite invitation design style from the Collection Shop.
Next, choose the print method and paper type that compliment your wedding day style and fit your budget. You’ll also decide what quantity you need to send an invitation to each household, as well as any extras for last minute guests, detail photos, and keepsakes.
Visit the Add-Ons page to choose any additional items you would like to add to your suite. Add-ons include fun extras like wax seals, envelope liners and invitation assembly. Add these to your invitation order to customize your suite even more!
Design begins once you submit your order. I will design a full proof of your wedding suite with your selected colors and add-ons. The design process takes 5 business days.
Personalized proofs designed in your colors and wording will be sent to you for review. Collection suites include 2 full rounds of revisions.
Once you’re happy with your proofs, you’ll give your final approval via email. Nothing prints until you approve!
Digital printing takes 10 business days. Premium printing takes 12-15 business days.
Your invitation suite order will be printed, inspected for perfection, and carefully packaged and shipped to you!
Once you receive your invitations, now is a great time to order your day-of stationery! These day-of items can include everything from custom cocktail napkins to signature drink signs and menus – all matching your invitation suite style!
Printing & Paper Options
Digital printing is a standard style of printing producing a smooth, flat finish. This is the most common printing method. All digitally printed invitation suites are printed on a premium Eggshell finish paper in your weight and color choice.
Letterpress printing is a luxurious form of printing where a plate is pressed onto paper to produce a deep impression. Letterpress plates are created for each color that is imprinted, so pricing is based on the number of colors used. Letterpress invitation suites are printed on Crane’s Lettra Cotton paper in your weight and color choice.
Foil stamping is similar to letterpress printing, but uses metallic foil instead of ink to achieve a metallic finish. Foil is available in
silver, gold, rose
gold or black and all foil stamped invitation suites are printed on Crane’s Lettra Cotton paper in your weight and color choice.
Letterpress & Digital
Many couples love the luxe look of letterpress but choose to combine letterpress and digital printing for a more cost effective option. Your wedding invitation is letterpress printed while all other pieces of your invitation suite are printed digitally. This is a favorite option among MM couples!
All Collection suites are available in two paper weight options.
A substantial, 110 pound paper.
A 220 pound, twice the thickness of single ply.
Please order a sample pack before placing your final order if you are deciding between the two options.
Our Pure White paper color is a true bright white. This paper is available for all printing methods and will give your suite a crisp modern finish. Matching Pure White envelopes are included.
Our Soft White paper color is MMFP’s most popular option. It is a perfect creamy white color without a yellow ivory hue. It is NOT ivory. This paper is available for all printing methods. Matching Soft White envelopes are included.

Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some of our most frequently asked questions, but feel free to schedule a time to chat with me if you have more! Design consults are a great way to get more information on options, pricing, timelines and advice on which suite may be best for your wedding style.
How long does the ordering process take? When can I expect my order to ship?
Your wedding invitations should be ordered about 3 – 4 months before your wedding, giving you plenty of time to stamp, seal and mail to your guests. All Collection designs take about 6-8 weeks to process (including design, revisions and printing time). Additional time is required for custom design orders (5-6 months from first point of contact to delivery), so make sure you’ve got plenty of time to get all the details perfect.
When should I send out my Save the Dates & Invitations?
Save the Dates should be sent about 6 months before your big day. Your invitations should be sent 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding date.
Do you offer rush orders?
Digitally printed orders can be rushed for an additional $250. Rushed orders will ship 3 business days following the final approval of your suite proof. Please note, letterpress and foil printing cannot be rushed due to the nature of the printing process.
How do you ship orders? What if I am local?
All orders are shipped via USPS Priority. Once shipped, you will receive your pretty package within 3-7 business days. Shipping on all MMFP orders is a flat $50. If you are local, you may pick up your invitations at the MMFP Studio or delivery is available for a flat $50 charge.
How many revisions are included in the design process?
Collection pieces include 2 rounds of edits. Most pieces are edited to perfection using the allotted rounds, but if necessary, additional rounds of edits are $50 each. Custom Designed pieces include up to 4 rounds of edits, but I will work with you to get your design perfected as needed.
What type of paper do you use?
All Digital Collection suites are printed on your choice of single-ply or double-ply Eggshell paper in Pure White or Soft White. All Letterpress and Foil orders are printed on Crane’s Lettra Cotton paper in your choice of single-ply or double-ply Pure White or Soft White.
