Yes, good quality white envelopes and UK postage are included in the invitation price.

HOW ARE MY INVITES SENT TO ME?

Once they have been printed we post your invites by recorded delivery (which means they must be signed for)
to an address of your choice. Postage is free to all UK customers.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVEN'T ORDERED ENOUGH INVITES?

It's no problem, Desired Designs will keep hold of your print files if you need a reprint, although it is much
cheaper if you add a few extra invitations (5-10) when placing your original order.
