Christening stationery samples

Can I see samples of your christening stationery?

You can order free samples of our christening stationery to get a feel for our high-quality paper and printing. You will receive an envelope with different designs of our christening invitations and on-the-day stationery.

Can I order personalised samples of my christening stationery to see if I like it before making an order?

If you would like to see your christening invitations or other christening stationery before submitting a full order then you can order a personalised sample. We are pleased to offer each customer one free personalised sample to put their mind at ease. Please note that samples of foiled designs will not feature our gold foil stamping. Additional printed proofs are available for £3, including standard shipping, regardless of the type of paper chosen.

Christening invitations

Do your christening invitations come with envelopes?

Yes. The price of your christening invitations includes white or ivory envelopes. You can also choose to upgrade to coloured envelopes for a small surcharge per envelope.

I would like christening invitations in a specific colour, can you help?

You can search for christening invitations in your desired colour by using the filters on the left-hand side of our christening invitations catalogue. If you like a design that does not come in your desired colour, our graphic designers may be able to change the colour of the design, so do not hesitate to get in touch with our friendly team to discuss advanced personalised changes. Please note that colour changes may incur an extra fee, and that we are unable to change the colour of watercolour designs, as they were originally hand painted.

Can I use your christening invitations as birthday party invitations or as baby shower invitations?

All the text and photos on our christening invitations can be fully personalised, allowing you to personalise them for any occasion including baby showers and birthday parties. Many of the designs would make lovely baby shower invitations and could be a nice way to reveal whether you are having a girl or a boy.

Can you provide me with an electronic copy of my invitations so that I can also send them by email?

We can send you a low-definition PDF version of your personalised stationery, once you have submitted a paid order. We can send you this via email. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide you with a PDF version of a personalised sample.

Christening place cards

Can you write my guests’ names on the front of my christening place cards?

Our christening place cards are designed for you to write your guests’ names by hand for a more personal touch. You can, however, personalise the reverse of the place cards adding your child’s name and christening date.

Christening menu cards

The design I like is in a two-page format but I would prefer four-page christening menu cards to stand on my tables, can you create a four-page version of this design?

If you would like four-page christening menu cards then you can get in touch with our friendly customer service team to discuss advanced personalised changes. We can usually transfer the design from one format to another. Therefore we may ask you to submit an order by personalising another design in the desired format so that our graphic designers can then transfer the elements of your two-page card to a four-page one. Although it can be unnerving to personalise a design that you have not chosen, rest assured that our graphic designers will take the necessary steps to recreate your preferred design and we will show you the final version electronically before sending it to print.

Christening gift tags

What format are your christening gift tags?

We have three different formats of christening gift tags, all of which come with pre-punched holes. We have square 4.5x4.5 cm gift tags, 6.5x3 cm landscape ones and finally 3x6.5 cm portrait gift tags.

How do I use your christening gift tags?

You can personalise the front of your christening gift tags online to include your child’s name and christening date. The reverse side cannot usually be personalised as it is designed for you to write your guests’ names by hand. Our christening gift tags come with pre-punched holes so you can slip them onto some string, twine or coloured ribbon and tie them to your gifts or christening decorations. The options are endless.

Christening thank you cards

Do your christening thank you cards come with envelopes?

Yes. The price of your christening thank you cards includes white or ivory envelopes as standard. We also offer a range of coloured envelopes, which you can add to your order for an additional 20p per envelope.

Do I have to add a photo to my christening thank you cards?

No, we have many christening thank you cards without photographs, which can be found by filtering by the number of photos on the left-hand page of the catalogue. We may also be able to remove the photo field from your christening thank you cards if you have your heart set on a design that includes a photo. To do so you would need to get in touch with our friendly customer service team to discuss advanced personalised changes.

Can I adapt one of your baby thank you cards not in the christening category, for my christening thank you cards?

Our christening stationery is designed to be as flexible as possible, with text that can be fully personalised. There is, therefore, nothing to stop you from turning one of our baby thank you cards into christening thank you cards.

Christening order of service booklets

Why can’t I personalise the inside pages of my christening order of service booklets?

Usually, the inside pages would not be sufficient for you to include words to christening hymns and all the details of the ceremony so our christening order of service booklets are designed to enclose separate A4 or A5 paper inserts that you can print at home. These will outline the key moments of your child’s christening. We can, however, print text directly to the two inside pages if required for a one-off fee of £10. You can contact our friendly team to provide us with the text that you wish to add and to organise payment of the one-off surcharge.

Can I print text on the inside two-pages of my christening order of service booklets?

You will be unable to add text using our online editing tool. We can, however, print text directly to these two inside pages if required for a one-off fee of £10. You can contact our friendly team to provide us with the text that you wish to add and to organise payment of the one-off surcharge.

Can Rosemood print my paper inserts for my christening order of service booklets?

Unfortunately, Rosemood is unable to print the separate paper inserts, but if you have a printer you will be able to do this from the comfort of your own home. We are, however, more than happy to advise you on what to include on your christening order of service inserts, and how to personalise the outside pages of our christening order of service booklets.

How do I secure my paper inserts inside your christening order of service booklets?  

You can secure your paper inserts in place with matching ribbon as per our order of service DIY tips.
