How To Order



At Dahlia Press, we make ordering as easy and simple as possible. Initially, we will work together with you to plan your project – after that, we take care of all the details. Your happiness is our passion and we will always deliver the highest quality ideas, original designs, personal attention and customer service.

The four steps below show how our process is both easy and fun! Visit our Pricing Catalog and FAQ page to learn more.


THE design

Before contacting us, take a look at the design options available on our site. Whether you’re looking for a wedding invitation, baby announcement, or even a holiday greeting, these will point you in the right direction. If you don’t see something that is a perfect fit, contact us. We may have something new up our sleeves or we can create a custom design!



No, we will not be getting down on one knee - but we are entering into a new relationship together. Once we have your details, we’ll prepare an Quote for your review. We will then work together to fine-tune any details before creating a final Proposal (also known as a contract). To begin work, we simply need your signature and a non-refundable deposit.



Simply contact us with the details of your order. The more details you can provide us at the start, the better! Be sure to include the following: - Quantity you anticipate - Individual pieces in your suite (i.e.: invite, reply, etc) - Date of your event - Collection choice or design ideas you have in mind - Printing method of choice



We’ll work together through a series of PDF proofs to create your design. After your design is complete and you have reviewed and signed the final design proof, we will order your materials, mix your inks and create your one-of-a-kind piece!

Complimentary PDF proofs will be sent to you throughout the design process.
