Currently, Seventh and Anderson is an online stationery boutique that operates out of a home studio located in Laurel, MT. There are plans for an offsite studio in the future.
Absolutely! Think favor tags, cocktail napkins, koozies, etc. Just send me a message and I’ll put together a personalized quote.
Samples can be purchased by clicking here. The cost of the sample will be applied to your future order.
All samples are pre-printed with the example wording and colors shown on the product page and cannot be customized. Sample packs include color charts on each of the cardstock options, so you can choose what you like best for your stationery order.
Wedding Collections are pre-designed suites customized to fit your wedding vision. All information, color selection, paper and printing processes are customized according to your preferences. Design and layout will remain the same but small customizations can be made.
Custom: If you are wanting an invitation design tailored specifically to your wedding location, or perhaps, you have a special size or shape in mind or would like to incorporate a symbol that represents a significant moment in your relationship, custom design is the way to go. We start from scratch and create a stunning wedding suite tailor-made for you.
PLEASE NOTE: I take on a limited number of full custom orders each year. Please inquire early to book your spot.
A general rule of thumb is one invitation per household, NOT one invitation per person. You’ll also want to include extras for keepsakes, for your photographer to capture on your wedding day, and in case you add anyone to your list. To learn more about how to calculate the number of invitations you’ll need, check out my blog post HERE.
Double envelopes are used for more traditional weddings. The outer envelope is used to protect the suite and addressed to your guests. The inner envelope is unsealed and includes only your guests’ names.
If ordering wax seals, double envelopes are recommended to help protect the seal from modern mailing machinery.
I sure do! Just send me a message with your request and I’ll put together a quote.
Online ordering for these pieces coming soon!
Wedding Collections (semi-custom): Payment is due in full upfront.
Custom Design: A non-refundable 50% deposit is due to book your spot. The remaining 50% + shipping is due prior to your final order being shipped.

There is not a quantity minimum for custom orders.
8-10% of your wedding budget is a good range for all your paper goods (including save the dates, invitations, and day of paper goods).
- Standard turnaround time is 4-5 weeks
- Letterpress or foil stamping adds approximately 3-4 weeks
- Assembly adds approximately 1 week
- Wax seals add approximately 1 week
- Other additions could possibly increase turnaround time
Due to the time involved in designing, printing and assembly, orders cannot be rushed. This also ensures the highest quality design and experience for you.
- Save the Dates: ASAP (9-12 months is ideal)
- Invitations: 4-6 months before your wedding
- Day-of Stationery: 8 weeks before your wedding
Check out my blog post HERE to learn more about ordering your wedding stationery.
Save the Dates: 6-12 months before your wedding
Wedding Invitations: 8-12 weeks before your wedding
Thank you cards: Within 4-6 weeks following your wedding
I recommend budgeting 8-10% of your total wedding budget for your paper goods. This should cover the following:
- Save the Date Cards + Postage
- Wedding Invitations + Postage
- Any Day-of Stationery you may want (think menus, programs, table signage, etc)
- Thank You Cards + Postage
A complete invitation suite includes more than just the date and location of your ceremony. It invites, guides, and informs your guests of pertinent information. Guests may need to know how to find the reception, where to stay and what the dress code is.
At a bare minimum, I recommend ordering:
Invitation + Envelope
Response Card + Envelope
Additional pieces to consider:
Large Enclosure: Most commonly used for preferred accommodations
Small Enclosure: Wedding websites, registry information, reception card

NOTHING is sent to print until you provide your final approval.
Absolutely! You will receive your initial proof within 48-72 business hours of placing your order.
Unlimited. I want you to love your wedding stationery as much as I love designing it for you.
I do not offer hard copy proofs. You will receive digital proofs for your review. I highly encourage you to purchase a sample kit prior to placing your order for accurate color matching and to feel the quality of the paper in person.
As with the guest addresses, an excel template will be provided to you for completion. Guest names must be provided exactly the way you want them written.
Any spreadsheets that are not formatted properly will be returned to you for correction(s) and will delay the production of your day-of stationery.
If you are having your guests’ addresses professionally printed on your envelopes, an excel template will be provided to you for completion. Addresses must be provided exactly the way you want them written. I will not spell out any words that are left abbreviated.
International addresses must be provided in their appropriate format.

The short answer, yes. If you have professional photos (most commonly engagement photos) a photo release from your photographer will be required prior to your stationery being sent to print.
Nope! I do not provide photo editing services. Your photograph will be used in your stationery order as submitted. It is your responsibility to provide a high quality, print ready image.
Absolutely! All Wedding Collections can be personalized to your specifications. Just enter the wording you would like when filling out the personalization and I’ll take care of the rest!
Have a tricky situation and need some help figuring out how to word something? I am more than happy to offer my suggestions to follow proper etiquette. Just ask!

Unfortunately, no. Each font has been carefully chosen to create unique and balanced designs. I do not offer font changes in order to preserve the integrity of my designs.
However, if there is something you don’t like about a particular font, just let me know! I often use fonts that have several alternatives available for each letter. I’m more than happy to share available options with you.
You may provide your own artwork as long as you have the proper rights to use it. All artwork must be submitted in either eps (vector) format, or high quality png files only.
Of course! The process will remain the same, but your wording will be different to reflect your specific event.
All stationery artwork, designs, and content remain the copyright of Seventh and Anderson. They may not be reproduced in any form without prior written permission from Seventh and Anderson.

- Cancellations and full refunds are available if you cancel within 24hrs of puchase and no design work has begun.
- If the design process has started, but no proofs have been sent, there is a 25% cancellation fee. At a minimum, you agree that the cancellation fee fairly compensates Seventh and Anderson for time needed to create your personalized proofs.
- If you choose to cancel after receiving your personalized proofs, or at any time during the design process, there is a 50% cancellation fee.
Due to the personalized nature of my products, orders are not eligible for return or exchange.
Samples are non-refundable. However, the cost of the sample can be applied to your future order.
If there is a printing error made on my part, the item(s) will be reprinted at no cost to you. If there is an error in the proof provided to you, and you approve the design and/or wording you will be responsible for the cost of reprinting and shipping.
Wedding invitations are available in digital printing, foil stamping, letterpress or a combination of the three. Check out the Paper and Printing Options for a detailed look at the methods.

Most likely, no. While I strive to portray colors as accurately as possible on my website, all monitors display color differently and may not accurately represent how your order will print. I cannot guarantee that the printed color will look exactly like the screen color.
It is highly recommended you order a Wedding Sample Kit prior to placing your order.
Digital Printing: Approximately 1 week after design is approved
Letterpress/Foil Stamping: 4-5 weeks after design is approved
To uphold my quality standards, I do not offer digital files to be printed elsewhere.
Wedding invitations, save the dates, belly bands, and wax seals ship flat and require assembly. Everything needed for assembly will be included in your order, along with instructions.
Assembly is offered for an additional fee. Check this option during the ordering process, sit back, relax and let me do the work for you!
Wax seals are professional-grade wax seal stickers. All you have to do is remove the backing and stick them to your envelopes.
Envelope liners will come assembled unless requested otherwise. Calligraphers may request/suggest that they are not assembled.
Mailing services are available for an additional fee. Professionally addressed envelopes must be ordered to access this service.
Postage depends on the size and weight of your finished invitation suite. I can provide estimates once your invitations are printed, but I recommend taking a complete suite to your local post office to get an accurate cost.
To learn more about postage costs and to estimate your postage needs, check out this BLOG POST.
Sample kits are mailed via USPS First Class Mail with tracking.
All other packages shipped via the method you choose at checkout.
I currently ship within the United States only.
I sure do! If you reside in Billings, MT or the surrounding areas, you are welcome to pick up your order upon completion. I will be in contact to schedule a time that works for you.
