Samples of day invitations are available to order from our website. The cost of any chosen sample will be deducted from your bill once an order has been placed.

Samples can easily be ordered from the Collections Page

Due to high demand a maximum of 3 samples can ordered. We aim to dispatch samples within 10 working days but due to demand this can take up to 15 working days. Whilst the samples are not customised to meet your particular colour, we are happy to send swatches of card or ribbon for a colour match. For colours of card and ribbon please see our Colour Swatches. If you do not see the colour you are after we have many more ribbon and card colours available so please contact us when we will be more than happy to help!

Please note that ordering a sample does not guarantee availability for your wedding date. Please feel free to drop us an email at info@paper-tulip.co.uk or give us a call on 07827 443105 to check availability.

How to Order your Wedding Stationery

  1. Prior to ordering your stationery you must first check that we have availability for the dates required. To check availability you can either email us at info@paper-tulip.co.uk or phone us on 07827 443105.
  2. Once availability has been confirmed you can then proceed with your order. You can do this by either:

We can accept approximate numbers for your invitations at the time of ordering. Please note when ordering that the number ordered cannot be reduced more than 10% and numbers must be confirmed by 12 weeks before the dispatch date.

We understand that you may not have your wording available for your stationery at the time of booking. Normally we receive the wording for the day and evening invitations first followed by the wording for any ‘On the Day’ stationery you may have ordered nearer the time of your wedding.

If you have your wording available at the time of booking, then please attach it to the order form. If not we will let you know the latest date we require your wording for on the order confirmation which will be emailed to you on when we receive your completed order form and deposit.

We require a 50% deposit to proceed with any orders. The 50% deposit can be paid when submitting the order form or alternatively, we can email you an invoice when we receive your order form which should be paid within 3 working days.

We accept payment by BACS, Cheque (made payable to Paper Tulip) or Paypal.

(Please note there is a 3% surcharge when paying with Paypal, this excludes orders for samples made via the website)

We will require a £50 deposit which will hold your slot until 12 months before your order is due. Thereafter the standard 50% deposit will be required.

The above applies to bookings made 12 months or more in advance of due orders and is subject to continued availability of materials as shown. If any material is discontinued suitable alternatives will be used.


All of our orders are sent via Royal Mail or Courier and will need a signature upon receipt (excluding sample orders).
