Maybe We Can answer Your Questions Here…
What makes PoppySeed Paper different?
The designs and drawings that you see on our products are original. It works because both Blake and Robin get to express their creativity while producing original stationery at a fabulous price.
May I choose a different font from the one shown on the product?
Yes you may. But please remember that we take special care to choose the font when designing each product. What we choose is what we think looks great on that specific item. Please choose a font from our Font Choice Menu located here… Font List
Is there a minimum order for personalized stationery?
Because all of our products are custom designed and specialized to your liking, we require a minimum of 10 cards per design on folded, flat, and enclosure cards that are currently shown on the website. Stickers come in sheets and there is only a minimum of one sheet per order. Minimum ordering amounts are shown on each product description.
What if I want a specific theme drawn or a major design change?
Please remember that we are here to make our customers completely satisfied with a great product at a great price. New designs and drawings require more time from both the development side at PoppySeed Paper and the proofing by the customer. We require a $50 minimum order to produce these new products. Please feel free to contact us about your idea. It is at our discretion whether the request meets our company model in terms of design idea and time commitment. Please remember we can not use trademarked or copywritten images.
Enclosure cards and gift stickers are the same price – How do I specify which I want?
Once you have chosen the design that you would like to order, just type in your personalization in the text lines. Then tell us which you would prefer to have, stickers or enclosure cards, in the next text line. Unless otherwise specified, we will assume you want enclosure cards.
Does PoppySeed Paper charge a set-up fee?
No. Your set-up is included in the price of your stationery order.
Does all personalized stationery include envelopes?
Yes, all folded cards, flat cards, invitations, announcements and holiday cards include envelopes in your price.
If I am ordering a photo card, what format do the photos need to be?
Photos need to be in a .jpg format in the highest resolution possible. If you are taking them with a digital camera, use the highest setting. The higher the megapixel the better! Scanned photos need to be 300-600 dpi. Your photo can be sent to us through your computer via e-mail.
What if my photo is the wrong size or color?
We can crop, convert color photos to black & white or sepia and make your photo perfect for the card you have chosen. We will make sure you are happy with the photo by sending you a proof.
What kind of paper are the photo cards printed on?
All photo cards are printed on a heavy weight premium card stock.
What if I want my photo cards or announcements printed on linen?
Not a problem! We print on linen and have the envelopes to match. The price is $1.50 per card/envelope.
I would like a two sided photo card – Do you offer that?
Yes – We do those all the time! In fact, we offer two different choices. The first is our Premium Line which is a heavy weight stock with a matte finish. This comes with the standard white envelope. The second is a gorgeous pearl metallic card stock that is perfect for a double sided card. We call this our “Platinum Line”. These come with a matching pearl metallic envelope. For both, you may choose any single sided product and we will design the back to match. The size for both is 5″ x 7″.
1.50 per Premium 2 Sided Card
2.00 per Platinum 2 Sided Card
