The Katie Fischer Design Mailing Process and Agreement
After all the time and effort perfecting your invitations, it’s vital to get the mailing right. Katie Fischer Design is happy to take care of all the details and leg work for you. Here’s what we do for mailings:
+ Schedule the mailing date - we’ll choose a date that is appropriate and approved by you.
+ Double check your digital or hand-written calligraphy to make sure we have every envelope and that everything is correct.
+ Re-confirm the postage requirements with the post office for the outer envelope and reply cards.
+ Sort out all international suites and set aside. We will purchase the correct postage at the post office. (We’ll leave postage off the international reply envelopes, as those recipients will need to apply the correct postage at the post office from their country).
+ Apply the correct postage to all domestic reply card envelopes.
+ Apply the correct postage to all domestic outer envelopes.
+ Assemble your suites. Tie ribbon or seal belly bands, if ordered.
+ Seal the envelope closed with a glue stick or double-sided tape (depending on paper type and weight).
+ Bring your ready-to-mail envelopes to the post office. We check the postage amount one more time with a clerk. If postage rates have increased since we purchased your stamps, we will notify you and plan accordingly.
+ Hand-cancel each and every envelope for you to avoid having them run through the machines (Montclair post-office only. We can't guarantee this from Manhattan post offices). As a result, your envelopes will arrive to your guests in better condition.
+ Purchase the correct postage and fill out any necessary customs forms for your international envelopes. The amount of international postage purchased will appear on your final bill. Once the postage is applied, we make sure the international envelopes get hand-cancelled.
+ We will send you an email to let you know once we have completed the mailing. Get ready for the swooning emails and texts!
