Color Envelopes With Your Invitations

You get things included with your invitations that others charge extra for

The Fourth of July is one of our very favorite holidays; a day filled with food, fun, family and fireworks. What else could you want when it’s time to find your inner Yankee Doodle Dandy? If you’re the party host, now is the time to order your custom-made July 4th invitations from Poly Graphics, so that  the family, neighbors, and friends will be talking good things about you for yet another year.

We know you don’t have time to design your invitations off the web—that’s why we will do all of the work for you from the ground up. We’ll place your text, change your colors, and design your graphics. You will be opening up your fresh stack of personalized invitations all within three business days of initially placing your order. And your 5 x 7 invitations will make an impression when your guests feel them in their hands. Our paper is high quality 80-100 lb. cover stock. You can choose from 19 different colors of envelopes, including white or ivory.

Here are five tips from us to help you prepare your invitations:

  • Send them out on time so your guests can reply on time.
  • Proofread! We’ll help you catch any mistakes in your proofing stage, too.
  • Include your name, party theme, address, phone number/email, date, RSVP information, start time/end time, and any additional instructions like what you’re providing, or if your guests need to bring a swimsuit.
  • But don’t put your zip code on your invitation since zip codes aren’t needed by GPS systems and guests will have your zip from the envelope’s return address.
  • Make sure all of your wording is in the third person. So for example, you’ll want to say “Al and Alice invite you to their 2012 Fourth of July Bash” not “our bash.”

Call us today—will love helping our customers make a great impression with our invitations, which will ensure your party and/or event is a success every time!

Your Friends May Laugh When You Tell Them That They Will Have Your Personalized Invitations Tomorrow, But Will Be Amazed When You Hand Them Invitations The Next Day

How to Get Your Invitation Order The Fastest

The Poly Graphics ladybug moving fast

You can get fully personalized invitations as fast as tomorrow from

We know that you want your invitations as fast as possible.

Here are a couple of ways to help you get them fast,  faster than anywhere else:

1) Order with Rush Service – this assures that your order gets the fastest service possible. Your order goes to the top of the line and will get attention as fast as possible. If you order with the Rush option before 11:00 a.m. your order will ship the same day! (as long as it is a non-holiday weekday).

Rush Service gets you a carefully crafted proof very quickly. Please review your proof carefully. When you approve it, we will print and ship ASAP. Please then take into account the shipping time.

2) Live Dangerously – place your order with “no draft”. When you enter your order online, be sure to double and triple check your wording before you checkout. Although your wording will be fully proofread, if you live dangerously by requesting No Draft, we will not seek your approval of a proof before we print your invitations. Your order will ship the next business day.

To choose no draft while ordering, look for the checkbox that says “No, I don’t want to be bothered with a draft” underneath where you put your email address.

3) Normal Speed, but still darn quick. When you order invitations a proof will be created for you within 24 weekday hours. If you order on a Monday at 1:00 p.m., your draft will be ready for you to review before Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. If you order on a Friday, your draft will be ready to review on Monday.

Shipping time and shipping method

A Rush order placed by 11:00 a.m. on a weekday will ship the same day.

For the fastest shipping choose Overnight to receive your cards the next day for most of the United States. Some locations cannot get overnight delivery from the US Post Office. We will check when we receive your order, or please use USPS’s tool to see what delivery time is from us (zip 27502) to you.

You can also choose UPS 2nd Day shipping to get your invitations in 2 days or Ground shipping, which will take 2-6 days for you to receive it. Note that UPS packages do not move over the weekend, please only count weekdays for UPS. Use the UPS time and cost tool to figure out how long invitations will take to get to you.

After you approve your draft and your order will be printed and shipped as soon as possible. Then the shipping option that you picked will determine when you receive your invitations.

All three shippers break up the United States into 8 zones. The zone that your zip code is in is usually called Zone 1. The location the farthest away from you is Zone 8. UPS makes an exception for Hawaii and Alaska which get special codes (44 and 46).

For example, Poly Graphics is located in zip code 27502 which is in Apex, North Carolina on the east coast of the United States. South Carolina is Zone 8
