When shall I send my Save the Dates out?

They are usually sent out up to one year prior to the wedding.
You may wish to consider Save the Date cards if you have guests travelling from overseas so that they can organise their travel arrangements in advance. Save the Dates are also a good idea if you are getting married at a busy time of the year such as summer holidays or Christmas.

When shall i send my Invitations out?

Invitations to your guests are usually sent out 12-16 weeks before the wedding day.

Give enough time if you have guests travelling from overseas so that they can organise their travel arrangements in advance. If you are getting married at a busy time of the year such as summer holidays or Christmas.
You may order your stationery as far in advance as you would like. We do not have to print it straight away, but we can ensure the design, printing and production are scheduled in our diary for the correct time.
We ideally require around two weeks turn around from receipt of your order forms to delivery to your door. We may be able to deliver on a shorter time scale depending on our work schedule.


Please complete our online order forms. As Millbank and Kent are renowned for offering a personal service, we will more than likely also want to contact you via telephone or email to fine tune your individual needs. This is why we do not have a 'Shopping cart' website.
We will follow up with a schedule of dates for us all to work to in getting the design, proofing and printing of your stationery completed and include the invoice due for what you have ordered.


Payment is due on receipt of the 1st set of online proofs from us. Printing will not commence without full payment.
We require a £50.00 reservation fee to secure your order if stationery is not required to be printed within 2 months of receiving your intital order.
This is refunded on your first invoice for stationery. Please note, it is non refundable if you decide you no longer wish to place the order with us.
Payment may be made by online banking, or via Paypal using a credit card. Our banking details will be shown on the bottom left of the invoice you receive.

Proofing Process

We usually send an online proof of your initial invitation order. Paper proofs may be chargeable.
We will not go ahead and print your stationery until you have signed off each piece of stationery or sent an email confirming each item and its version number is 'ok to print'.
If colour matching has been requested without a paper proof, you take responsibility for the shade/s on completion of the delivered print.
Please note: Once you have said 'Yes to Print' or confirmed for us to proceed with printing on your approval form or via email this is final and we cannot accept responsibility for errors made by you or ourselves thereafter.

Card Stock

We recommend you write on your chosen card stock with the pen you intend to use to ensure it adheres to the paper/card. Some stock may prove difficult with fountain/gel pens. Alternatively you may have your guest names printed at an additional charge.

Minimum Order Quantity

We have a minimum order quantity of £50.00 for your first order only. Any further orders will not incur the minimum order fee. If your order is just below this value, please contact us to see if we can accept your order. This will depend on our work schedule at that time.

Other Items of Stationery you may require

If you require a particular piece of stationery that does not feature on our price list, please do not hesitate to ask if if we can produce this for you. We are more than happy to fulfill most requests if we are able!
