Invitations: Why Order Early?

If you have been keeping up with The Finer Things, you might have noticed that we tend to talk about parties months before the actual holiday. For example, we’re trying to give you plenty of Halloween party ideas to ponder now, though the holiday is still two months away. Part of the reason we do this is so that you have plenty of time to pick out, order and mail your invitations before the event date.

All About Timing

In busy times like these, we suggest that you mail out informal party invitations 3 – 4 weeks prior to your event (formal dinners and parties are recommended at 6-8 weeks). In addition to this time frame, you also need to factor in the time it takes to process and deliver your personalized invitation order.

A lot of variables go in to estimating order delivery including shipping method and location as well as vendor processing time. Thankfully, FineStationery.com offers an easy-to-use “How Quickly Can I Get It?” tool, which appears as a link on each product page. Simply plug-in your zip code and the tool will give you an estimated delivery date for that specific invitation.
