Personalised Samples : see your cards up-close before they go to print

Ordering personalised samples

You can order a personalised sample (printed proof) of any of your cards, (excluding foil stamped stationery), in order to triple check that everything is absolutely perfect before sending your entire order to print. You can make sure that the printing quality, page layout and photo quality of your cards meet (and exceed) your expectations. We are pleased to offer each customer one free personalised sample (excluding our foil stamped cards) to put their mind at ease. Additional printed proofs are available for £3, including standard shipping, regardless of the type of paper chosen. If you are happy with your personalised sample once it arrives, you can submit a full order of identical stationery by accessing My Account/My orders and then clicking on "Reorder" by the required item of stationery.

To create a free personalised sample, you can personalise your favourite design and then select "1 Free Copy" when choosing how many copies of your personalised cards or invitations you would like to order. If this option does not appear in the drop-down menu this is probably because you are trying to order a free personalised sample of a foiled design. Given the manual process required, using artisanal techniques to add our luxurious metallic foiling to your stationery, we are unable to offer one free personalised sample of foiled designs. See below for more information.

Retouching service

Your personalised sample will go through the same rigorous design review as an order of 10, 50 or even 200 cards would. First, your card will be proofread, then retouched by our team of graphic designers. Get the lowdown on our complimentary retouching service here! Even though you are ordering a free personalised sample of your stationery, we want to do all that we can to make sure that your stationery is perfect. If our proofreaders or graphic designers suggest alternative wording or formatting, or if our customer service team would usually recommend a different type of high-quality paper or coloured envelopes then we will get in touch to have you approve any changes we have made during the retouching service. It is therefore helpful if you keep an eye on your emails for messages from us asking you to validate your design ready for print.

Samples of foil stamped stationery

Please note that we are unable to offer free personalised samples of foil stamped designs. Orders of foil stamped stationery start at ten copies, due to the fact that the foil is applied manually at our printing atelier using a vintage gilding press and thus demands much more care and attention. If you have your heart set on a foil stamped design and wish to see it before you submit your order, our team may be able to provide you with a non-personalised sample of the design. Do not hesitate to get in touch with our team via phone, email or online chat.

Free non-personalised samples

If you would simply like to check out the quality of our paper and envelopes in person before placing an order, you can request one of our sample packs here. They are free of charge and shipped out within 24 hours of us receiving your request. Please note that our free samples already feature sample names and photographs so are not designed for personal use. They are designed to give Rosemood customers a feel for our high-quality paper and printing.
