Hi all, i tried to follow the posts here but still wonder about something. Do we just provide the wordings to them? What about the font type, size, spacing etc? Or do we do up one on paper and then pass to them for them to copy?
Thomas, yes confirmed getting from them. coz i worked it out and cost is very similar to getting invites from hotel & printing inserts. might as well exchange the invites from hotel for other perks
plus, i dont like the designs the hotel gave! i will have to go in soon! waiting for my design so that i can go down after that.
They have various samples and graphics there for you to choose. You just need to bring a copy of your hotel wedding card so that they know the size to cut the inserts. They will zap a copy of the sample you choose and you amend the wordings from there.
hi all, i just came back from printing at t&t. would say its very worthwhile to print over there, a little troublesome but worth the trouble, hehe
we printed slightly smaller than 5.5x5.5", 350 pcs costs us about RM420+ inclusive of envelopes(bought extra 25 envelopes at RM0.25 each). much cheaper than printing inserts locally (was quoted S$0.70/insert by the printer recc by my hotel) the thing to note is that they do digital printing, so quite common to see 'bleeding' on some of the darker coloured parts to the lighter colours, nothing they can do about it
didnt notice any border in those samples which i view when i was there yesterday. maybe u can call and ask just to be sure.
i think paper wise they use those normal 80gsm paper? someone correct me if i'm wrong. U can choose either pink or beige color inserts. Unless you are willing to pay more then they can print on translucent paper as well.
thomas> it's called tommyprints, near the underpass to Tan Tock Seng, on the right side, a few shops after the Japanese snacks store. I just sent my church invite and inserts for printing today
JL> same as u, i'm having a church wedding and banquet dinner and some pp are only goin for church but not the banquet. So I got someone to design a church wedding invite that can fit into my hotel invitation card. For those I'm inviting to church wedding only, I'll give the church invite. For both, then I'll slot the church invite together with the banquet invite in the same envelope.
vt, so u did a church invite as in a "one piece 2 face insert" to slot into the banquet card, and another proper card for church invitees? because can't be mailing those insert on its own to church invitees right? sorry i'm confused.
JL> my church invite is just like a postcard, double sided, sized according to the dimensions of my banquet envelope. If invited for both, then the guest will get a church invite + a banquet invite or else, it'll just be either one on its own. They're separate entities.
All... got the cards from T&T. Quality is good. Comparable to S'pore printing. Service is good... much much better than our local grumpy aunties who charge you for every little details such as cropping and graphics. Very happy
RM243 for 200pcs of 14.5" x 14.5" cards. Double side printing... one side the invite details, the other side our photo. After conversion, S$0.50 each.... where to find
I have to add that there are several salesgirls. I have a feeling each have their own quotes.
Initially, when I emailed them, there is this Shirley who replied me with quotes. When we went down personally and attended by another gal, she gave us a cheaper quote without us even asking!!! So I just sealed the deal with her immediately!
Her name is Pauline.... but i think she is not in-charge of email responses so you have to go down personally to find her.
Oops...reading back my earlier post... typo error.... my card size is 14.5cm x 14.5cm instead of 14.5" x 14,5"..... apologies.
Go easy with the bargaining.... like I said, I believe they have different quotes. If you feel the quotes they offer is good, then grab it. If you feel they trying to rip you off, counter-offer them the price you willing to pay.... just quote (bluff) them that a fren of yours did the printing at that price recently.... and see what they say.
Yes u can bring ur hotel cards for the printing but i think is more expensive than printing on the inserts. I also print on the inserts n then insert into the wedding cards provided by the hotel. If u write wrongly the name on the insert u can just replace the insert rather than wasted one card.
i printed my ROM invitation with T&T too..
it wasnt a planned one but we "knocked" onto them on our first visit to JB together.
their service are not bad and i can see alot of singaporeans went to them to print wedding cards cos they have a list of singapore hotels' names. haha...
we have also received good feedbacks from frds on the invites.
we are planning to print our AD inserts with them and probably design another one for our frds. haha... i've picts of the invite on my multiply. PM me if you are keen to take look on how it looks like.
hi hi, is this thread still going on?? i read through all the posts and noticed most of u doing inserts..anyone did the wedding cards?? can anyone share with me?? i have resturants cards but dun really like that design and my mum wrote wrongly on the cards..so tot of re-printing all...can anyone advise??thanks thanks....
