STEP ONE - Place order, choose layout & design


To place a Variable Data order please visit our retail store or call us at 503.223.1093 for instructions on placing an order.  When placing an order, you will be making choices for paper, design, color, typestyle, size, placement, and number of lines for the
addresses or names. 

Please note: Inks used for letterpress printing and digital printing are different. We will make every effort to match the color of ink on your personalized envelopes to your invitation ink color, but not all ink colors will have an exact match.  There may be a slight variation in color. 


STEP TWO - Create excel document, email document to digital design department


Next, you will need to compile a complete list of all of your guests names and addresses in an excel document and email it to designpearl@oblationpapers.com.  If you have varying number address lines, you will need to create separate excel documents for each set of addresses. For example international addresses have an additional address line for the country (See below*.) Please pay attention to spelling, punctuation, etc. as names and addresses will print exactly how they are in the excel document.  You are responsible for all of the information in the excel document. Once your excel document has been submitted you will receive a digital PDF proof of the layout  within 1-2 business days. We highly recommend coming into the store to view the proof in person to ensure you are happy with the color, size and layout of the design. If you should notice any spelling, punctuation or grammatical errors in your excel document after you receive the first proof, all corrections must be resubmitted to us in the same excel format as the original document.

Each line of the address should be typed in a separate excel column.

STEP THREE - Approval & printing


Once we have received all the addresses in the correct format and a proof is approved we will begin the printing process. This process takes 5-7 business days to complete. Your order will not move forward until all addresses have been received in the correct format. Each additional batch of addresses post approval is $25, no matter the quantity. 
Please note: If your envelopes are being lined or letterpressed, additional time will be needed to process your order.
