Only if you choose to. You have the options (below the prices on the product page) to choose from. You can choose to customise (type your invitation using our templates by clicking on the “customise this design” tab) and assemble yourself or you can choose one of the two options listed: (1) You can choose for us to assemble (you customise and we assemble) or, (2) You can choose to have us do it all. If you choose the last option (for us to customise and assemble) then simply click on “customise this design” but do not type anything on the template – simply submit and add to cart. We will then email you a form to complete and we will customise the design and send you a PDF proof for approval. When you receive your invitations they will be assembled and ready to go!
