The Quill is not responsible for your invitations once they are sent out through USPS (or any other international postal carriers) to your guests. We highly suggest that you order extra invites to account for lost, damaged or returned items that may occur during transit time via USPS. We always recommend that you have your invitations hand-canceled.


Hand-canceling is when each envelope is hand marked by a person at the post office instead of being run through an automated machine. The post office ensures the stamp(s) you put on the envelope can’t be reused again by marking or “canceling” it with an ink stamp. Unless you specifically request your invitations to be hand-canceled, they will be processed and stamped by a machine, which might tear or smudge them. We always recommend invitations be hand-canceled at the post office to ensure that they arrive at their destination looking as beautiful as possible. Check with your local post office for availability and pricing before you purchase postage. We cannot assume responsibility for the state of your invitations during mailing, but we have found hand-canceling is the best way to ensure a flawless delivery.


Customers in the state of California will be charged the state sales tax rate of 9.25%.
