What a great experience ordering our invitations for our wedding. Missy was receptive, filled with ideas and overall just a joy to work with and made our invitations look so good.
The customer service at Watkins is excellent. I consider the people at Watkins to be friends, not just someone I use for all my printing needs. Their products are high quality. I never worry about what my printing will look like, because it has always looked great.
My husband and I used Watkins Printing for all of our wedding printing needs! We ordered our Save The Dates, Invitations, Inserts, Ceremony Programs, and Thank You Cards from them. They are the only ones in Cache Valley that offer an online design platform so you can custom design your orders, which was the #1 reason why we chose them. Their website is fast, easy to use and their turn around time is usually 2-4 business days. No complaints here! Thanks Watkins Printing!
Missy is a lifesaver. I'm a space case and most of my orders have had some kind of error on my end. She is quick to contact me and clarify what I want and correct my order. She is so sweet, friendly, and easy to work with. Great service. Quick turnaround time. They call to make sure they are printing what you want and they call to let you know when your order is ready to pick up. Wonderful!
I have worked with Watkins for business cards and company envelopes and they do a great job! Steve is great to work with, and in only one incident there was a mix up on envelope types and they worked with us well to resolve the problem. Very responsive and professional company.
The industry standard for bleed is .125" around all four sides outside of the actual size. The safe margin is .125" around all four sides inside of the actual size. This ensures that everything important is not cut off and that color goes all the way to the edge of the paper. This principle applies to all of our printed products.
Design File Size: 5.25" x 7.25"
Actual Size: 5" x 7"
Safe Zone Size: 4.75" x 6.75"

From the time of order submission, it will take 1 business day to receive your proof. Once the proof has been approved, it will take 3 business days until your order is ready for pick up. If your order is being shipped, it can take up to 7 business days to receive your order.
Business days are Monday through Friday. If a holiday falls on a business day, that day is not included in the turnaround time.
On Fridays, our machines are shut down early for end-of-week cleaning.
We strongly suggest viewing a hard copy proof, especially if you are worried about color. Colors on your monitor may not be representative of the printed product. The monitor uses a resolution of 72 dpi and is RGB based, while printing uses 300 dpi and is CMYK based. The colors on the monitor are brighter than they will appear when they print. To see true color representation, you will need to see a printed hard copy proof.
Proofing adds to turnaround time based on whether you order a walk-in or mailed proof.
If you request a proof, we must receive your approval (in person, by phone, or email) to complete the printing process.
If you need to make changes to your order and require another hard copy proof, another business day will be added to your time frame, and you will be charged accordingly with the balance payment due at order pick up.
If you do not request a hard copy proof, placement of your order gives us permission to print without going through our proofing department. Watkins Printing will not be responsible for reprints if you are dissatisfied with your order and you did not request a hard copy proof.
Mailed proofs are sent using United States Postal Service (USPS) 2 Day Priority Flat Rate.
